SEAsians are more liberal than Arabic Middle Easterners in general. Of course we can't say all SEAsians and Middle Easterners are 'uptight' (I apologize if any Arabs are reading this).
But I know from experience that girls that grew up in Middle East, esp. Muslims are much more uptight. I've met and flirted Muslim girls, the most uptight are from Arabic Muslim countries. African, European (like Bosnian) and other Muslims are much more likely to date guys like us than Muslim Arab women.
Filipina girl (I mentioned earlier) was telling me this, her dad is from West Bank her mom is Flip/Catholic. Gorgeous, I mean gorgeous girl. She grew up in the PI. Her cousin is half Indonesian also pretty also grew up in Indonesia. They both more liberal than her half sisters who grew up in Palestine. Her dad was actually kinda forcing her to marry Muslim Arab man, but she said no way. LOOOOL.
