Speed dating websites nyc
Well I firmly believed this for a while but now I’m gonna have to say that’s not always the case.Through the years I, like most of you, I’m sure, have found myself in those infamous and utterly maddening situations.It happened for me — and a growing number of other women, including bloggers such as the Local Dialect, The Downtown Diner, and Wo Ai Ni.On occasion, it even creeps into the news, like this story.On the other hand, there are Chinese men — and their families — who would be happy to have a foreign woman in the family. For example, my good friend in Hangzhou, Xiao Yu, once told me that some Chinese men cannot overcome their feeling of inferiority — that being an American girl, a citizen of one of the most powerful countries in the world, made my presence somewhat intimidating.According to Xiao Yu, some Chinese men could never believe that such a girl would become their one and only. A driver who took me to the Beijing Airport this summer admitted he once had a Russian girlfriend when he was a college student.But he said he was never able to satisfy her (yes, in way), so they parted.The experience was so traumatic that he never sought another foreign girlfriend again.
Of course, some of it has its roots in the usual stereotypes — stereotypes in the Western World.Even my own husband was first told by his parents that he could be friends with a foreign girl, but not date her.Fortunately, their ideas changed when they met me in person!It’s because I’m often seen holding hands with my Chinese husband.
It’s true — the sight of a foreign woman and Chinese boyfriend or Chinese husband is much rarer than its counterpart, the foreign man and Chinese woman.
