If it was the latter combination, it was a chiseled, tall, generally attractive Asian guy with a generally attractive white woman.
Of the occasional same race couples, whenever I did see a generally attractive Asian woman, they were almost always holding hands with an Asian man (of varying attractiveness).
The United States and Western Europe were the first to report anorexia as a medical syndrome in the late 19th century, and along with bulimia, it became prevalent in the West in the late 1960s.
Approximately, 9 out of very 10 of those couples were a white male with an Asian female (and 1 out every 10 of those couples were an Asian male with a white female).
Of the first combination, more often than not, it was unattractive nerdy white guy (with a weak chin, pasty skin, and thinning hair) holding hands with a generally unattractive Asian woman.
