Chasing the Dream

The love of Asian culture and in particular Chinese culture was instilled in me from my father at a very early age. I can still remember him teaching me martial arts nearly as soon as I was old enough to walk, and the crazy Kung-fu movies I would watch with him. I even grew up with people believing I was of Chinese descent even though it is obvious if you ever met me that I am most certainly not Asian. I can’t blame them though my last name does resemble a Chinese last name.

It became a dream of mine to go to China. At first it was just the dream vacation, that place you always wanted to go, but never got around to. In time my dream faded as the reality of the world around me crashed down on me. I was too poor to go to school, and blew my chance at a degree so I tried to do the next best thing. I got a job and worked hard until I could say I wasn’t poor anymore. Then I tried to fulfill the American dream with the women here in the U.S. and only discovered the crazy vindictive women that really give all women a bad name.

It was through these bad experiences though, that I discovered my dream again. It was when I came across CLM, and it seemed quite a coincidence at the time that it said “Chinese women make dreams come true.” Now looking back maybe it was fate. I saw these beautiful women and thought to myself “this can’t be real” and if they are real they’d never even talk to a guy like me, but then I struck up a conversation with a gorgeous girl and amazingly she was very real and made me feel like I had not felt in years. I started getting my confidence back, and thinking that it was definitely a girl like this that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. My original plan was to go to China for a vacation , find the perfect girl, and bring her to me where I thought I’d have my happily ever after, but the more women I talked to though, the more I kept hearing the same thing. “Come to China, you could teach English.”

It was an intriguing idea, abandon all attachment and risk it all for the chance at happiness. The thought kept me up for a week, and finally I realized that I had nothing to lose. It was obvious to me that I needed to make a big change in my life. I was not getting any younger and if there is one thing I believe, it is that you aren’t living unless you take risk. So, now I’m chasing that dream I’ve had since I was young, the dream of walking in the land of the Dragon and finding my Chinese bride. It won’t be an easy journey but no journey worth taking ever is, and I will take you along with me on this crazy ride. Hopefully what I learn will be of help to others that share my dream.

Good luck with your dream, Grasshopper!

English teachers are well respected here in China
and the students here lap up information about international culture ..

It's also surprising how close to the American dream the Chinese dream is becoming.

My advise to you would be to get yourself comfortable with a job here in an area that suits your lifestyle (China is also like the States as far as regional variety) before you lock yourself into a relationship.

Thanks for the advice. I'll definitely keep that in mind with my search.
