Chinese american woman dating
Expectations in relationships are much higher in Chinese culture and they are taken more seriously from the outset.
In my senior year I gave up on him and began dating a caucasian boy who had been asking me out since sophomore year. At our ten-year reunion I was flabbergasted to hear him recall, "You always did have a thing for blond guys!
" The icy fury of my response surprised me even more than it did him.
"And you always were such a clueless asshole!
" With that I turned on my heel and headed for the far side of the room.
It wasn't until later that I began sorting out the emotions behind that little outburst.
That's when I began to understand that we Asian American women have been forced to carry a cross that is at least as heavy as the one borne by Asian American men.
