Some of my Asian friends have dated White girls but I'm not sure about you girls' general idea of dating an Asian man...
I'm 5'10, quite athletic/built, and I think I'm a fun guy to be around once you get to know me. It's unfortunate, but I think you hit on of the cliches that are an issue for some women, and that is height.
There are actors from other countries that have done American movies that would fit the bill, but to me this is very telling.
I think confidence is key, without coming across as being overly dominant.
It's unfair, but there are portrayals in our popular culture of two extremes--either effeminate or chauvinistic Asian men. But this might not be so much of an issue in the minds of younger women.
You can always slip your love interest a DVD of "In the Mood for Love" if you need to open her eyes to what she just might be missing... Both of my brothers married Asian women, because honestly, she is kind of the perfect wife.
I think Middle Eastern men probably have the most difficulty gaining acceptance from Caucasian women at this point, especially those that still regularly travel to their "homeland."Yes I understand... However, you're right the highschool and college girls I know don't seem to hold these beliefs probably because Asian Americans are a much newer ethnic group in the states and my generation isn't seen so much as "foreigners". My own son is leery to date an Asian girl because he thinks it seems kind of racist of his uncles to have both really only dated Asian women. I was trying to think of an Asian American male sex symbol, and couldn't come up with one.

I live in a semi-diverse area in California (it's around 50% Caucasian and 50% Asian), and I've been attracted to quite a few Caucasian girls throughout my life.
Although these are stereotypes that you may unfortunately have to deal with.
Hopefully enough of the population has been exposed to foreign movies that portray Asian men as romantic sex symbols, that these prejudices are fading...
