Some of the romantic messages read 'would you like to have a cute Eurasian baby' and 'I'm learning Chinese hard so that I can treat your ears with sweet words'.
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.
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 if that is the case, then why doesn’t she write about more of her dating experiences in the post?
One of my favorites, which I frequently recommend for anyone dating an Asian guy in a Western country, is Diane Farr’s . Another great way to explore dating Chinese men is through the many other women who have been there and written about it.
