About dating chinese
The girls might have, say, watched things like Sixteen Candles a few too many times, clueless to the reality that there are so many amazing Asian men (and, in my case, Chinese men 😉 ) out there.
A Chinese girl with traditional attitudes would not necessarily choose to wait until marriage to have sex with her boyfriend, but she would consider sex to be virtually the same as a promise to get married. a Japanese gay guy I know ONLY dates Black men, but no one criticizes his taste. Or, if the reaction is not totally negative, they are always INVASIVELY curious about every aspect of our relationship. Women are more polite, but shake their heads as if to say “what a waste.” Even my girlfriends who are Taiwanese don’t like asian men..If work or extended travel takes your family to China, it is important to have a working knowledge of Chinese customs and how these customs differ from American customs.This is especially important if you have teenage kids, because Chinese dating and marriage customs can be very different from those in the U. American teenagers are used to a dating culture where neither partner usually considers marriage until both partners are much older.Is it the media that refuse to let Chinese men become one the next Harrison Ford or Cary Grant, that iconic sexy and strong leading man? Whatever it is, it’s obviously these people who have the problem, and not you.
The guys might be threatened by seeing you with an Asian guy, someone they always figured they could somehow “out-do” to get the attention of a girl like you.
WHY is there nothing but negative reactions from anyone who hears that my boyfriend is asian? I seriously feel sorry for Asian guys who are just trying to get dates out there, having to work against this enormous negative image. I can only imagine how much worse it is in suburbia.
The reactions don’t seem to be specific to the country he is from… says anything negative when I mention my Chinese husband.
they are just so grossed out that anyone can actually date an asian guy. But then again, I live in the middle of nowhere, work from home, and I can’t even remember the last time I mentioned him to someone new.
I also feel like people think I have yelllow fever and it pisses me off – if I decided to exclusively date say, white guys, no one would care.
Almost everywhere else in China, however, traditional attitudes to dating prevail. In traditional Chinese culture, boys and girls are introduced to each other in a group social setting.
