12 Jun 05 (an Asian Man) :
So I started reading "How to Date a
White Woman: a Pratical Guide for Asian
Men" by Adam Quan. It's actually more
informative then I thought it was going to be. A lot of real stats and
And, after examining myself by the book's examples, I am far more
westernized than most Asian men, which apparently gives me better
advantage in the realm of dating.
.... By reading this book, I feel like I am taking a CES
on Asians in a western society. ...
This book ... it has given me a different perspective about me,
an Asian man, in this ...society. There are certain things that I
consider to be virtues and good behaviors from my cultural upbringing
that does not work in this society. In many ways, these habits make me
appear as "not being comfortable with myself." But this
really is a cultural misunderstanding --- and yes, even with me, a
fairly westernized Asian. ...... It has also given me to view
human nature in a different way, in particularly the different sexes
from evolution's point of view. It's quite interesting. Let me just
leave it at that.
