This was a very interesting post for me, especially as I have recently started dating a Chinese man. We have only been on two dates and I already can see some of the issues you have described. The other problem is the traditional gender roles. Sometimes I worry that he thinks he has to take me to nice restaurants to keep me happy and save face, dating norske kvinner he can ill-afford.
I like him very much, and I will try and keep the communication as open and honest as possible to keep cultural issues like this from destroying our fragile and new relationship. I cannot stand spitting, hocking loogies, nose picking, nail clipping, foot scratching, etc etc etc in public. Most Chinese men I know are fine with that.
Andi- I hope you can take it from someone who has been there; if you can tell him exactly as you have in your comment here, and make compromises about who pays etc. After being married to a chinese national for 20 years this DecemberI can remember back when we faced similar things, but putting it out on the table gingerly really worked.
This is a poorly written article that needs a lot more editing if some kind of properly structured idea is to emerge from it.

I for one, think that your dad did only what he thought was right which is all a human can do, you do what you think is right regardless of your family, they do not define or require you in any way. This woman is one of countless lower intelligence white females who have been brainwashed since they could crawl to the TV, which endlessly hypes black guys.
Also YOU are an idiot for suggesting she just throw away a relationship that has lasted all her life just so she can let herself be used by someone to whom she is just another piece of ass. Me and my bf half black half white dating norske kvinner been together over 4 years, and we want to get married next year.
My parents lost it when I told them about it just because he looks black though they both know he is a good man. My parents are same race but their marriage is a mess. After all, we all have same color of blood. Thank you for writing this Ashely.
There is evidence that couples differ in the pace and timing with which they initiate sex in their relationships. Teenagers and college-aged students tend to avoid the more formal activity of dating, and prefer casual no-strings-attached experiments sometimes described as hookups. It permits young women to ""go out and fit into the social scene, get attention from young men, and learn about sexuality"", according to one report by sociologists. Muslims living in the United States can choose whether to use traditional Islamic methods, or date American-style; Muslims choosing to stick to Islamic tradition can ""only marry another Muslim"", according to one Malaysian account.
