Although some readers might miss it, I think those who read the blog very closely will notice that this British woman was dating a Chinese man only as a project in connection with writing a general column about interracial dating. She was just dating this man as one of many other tasks to write about her experiences. My only guess is that she has also dated men of many other ethnicities, including non-Asians such as African-Americans and Latinos.

I do oppose her post, or at least the implications from it, or how she characterized the date. Her use of sarcasm was mean-spirited. That said, you have to be fair and realize that if her description of the date is accurate, the man was unworthy. At some point, you have to put your foot down, and even if she is the foreigner in another land, if this man truly wanted to get to know her better, that means respecting her cultural norms and she must respect his.

He ought to take charge. He should be proactively planning the date. He should maintain an interesting and active conversation with her to express his desire to get to know her better. The Asian men that truly desire to be with western women in body, mind, and soul have the initial responsibility of bridging the cultural gap.

Don’t leave drinks unattended; have an exit plan if things go badly; and ask a friend to call you on your cell phone an hour into the date to ask how it’s going.

If you explain beautifully, a woman does not look to see whether you are handsome or not — but listens more, so you can win her heart.

In September — my first month in China — I had a huge crush on a guy. My heart melted at that first sight of his big sesame-oil brown eyes. And I as I came to know him better, he didn’t disappoint me. He always opened doors for me and wouldn’t leave my side until he escorted me all the way to the entrance to my apartment. He helped me buy a bicycle at the secondhand market and even gave me a ride there on the back of his black metal bike.

When I came down with the flu, he accompanied me to my therapy at the clinic and read to me from Chicken Soup for the Soul. He even watched The Bridges of Madison County with me — one of the weepiest chick flicks ever made — and actually shed a few tears when it ended. He was more of a gentleman toward me than any other man I had ever known. He was Chinese, a man named Tian who grew up in Zhengzhou. When I thought about my burgeoning crush for Tian, I figured it was no different from that college semester when I studied in Spain.
