This is a universal rule, of course, but Asians truly value and respect their family’s opinions and if you don’t make the cut with the family, then you might find yourself being shown the door sooner rather than later.
Beyond that, you may eventually want to discuss things such as taking care of elderly parents.
Before you make any accusations of me making sweeping generalizations, note that my points here are completely biased according to my own sample size. White guys are much more laid back and are happy to carry on the conversation for another 30 minutes while the check is laying on the table; some are even willing to go dutch to further showcase their support towards gender equality. But, enzyme or no enzyme, don’t think this will deter an asian guy from schooling you in a drinking game though. Asian culture emphasizes family and collectivity, so it is quite the norm to take care of your parents while living under the same roof. There are many behaviours that are emphasized in a traditional asian culture.
These differences apply to most of Asia, as well, so pay attention.
I was told by a Japanese Scientist and good friend that you need at least three in a sample size to make an informed decision about something… FOB’s are very traditional in the fact that they date to marry, they are not aware of a lot of the stereotypes and they do not know American culture very well. and they tend to be pretty shy when it comes to women. They are open to some new things but prefer to stick with what they know.
at least, preferably more than that, but at least three can give you an idea. I have been considered quite an expert on the subject of dating Asian men and Chinese men, particularly. As for women, they are pretty open to different women as long as the woman likes them, but they are pretty shy so you may not know if they even are interested in you.
I have had very serious relationships with several Asian men that eventually led to the marriage to my current Chinese husband. Blows that rumor that they don’t date Black women out of the water doesn’t it? for you ladies interested in dating Asian men or Chinese in particular; you need to know there is a big difference between ABC men ) ….. They are very strong on tradition of taking care of family and parents.
Now before I get started I want to let everyone know that I am Black American and I am currently living in China. I didn’t make up these names they are created by the Chinese folks themselves. They think like you, they dress like you, they have the same stereotypes as you. They usually prefer their women to not go out a lot to the bars, and to stay home and keep a good house for them while they bring home the money for the family. and if you don’t like to have a man pay for your dinner and buy you things….
