The reality is, there are all kinds of Chinese men out there, and the potential for all kinds of dating experiences with them — both positive and negative.
One date alone cannot possibly even scratch the surface of what dating Chinese men is really like. First of all, I’ve used “On Dating Chinese Men” in the title of this post.
What does bother me, however, is how she presents the information. It was also a blind date — which, as anyone will tell you, can be a thorny situation no matter where in the world that date happens.
She titled the post “On Dating Chinese Men.” A title like that suggests that the author is bringing a great deal of experience to her topic — that perhaps she has dated a number of Chinese men, or at least dated one long enough to get a better sense of the dating culture, and she wants to tell others about that overall experience. Now, she does preface this date as her “first Chinese date,” suggesting she probably did have more than one experience.
But I’ve rarely encountered such a woman in the community of Chinese men and Western women in love.More often, I hear stories just like mine, the kind of “I happened to go to China” or “I happened to meet this one guy” sort of thing.In fact, if you just considered my dating history prior to China — all white American guys — you would have assumed I’d end up with the same for a husband.However, with Asian girls, it’s a completely different game if you want to seriously date an Asian girl.The reason behind it isn’t important, it could have to do with culture, social etiquette, or it could simply be because Asian women are just as socially retarded as most Asian men when it comes to hooking up.
