Enter The Dragon

The year was 1973, August, hot, sticky, and an air conditioned movie theater was an ideal haven for a group of 10 year old boys who had just witnessed the greatest action movie they had ever seen. The movie was Enter The Dragon starring the tragic martial arts star Bruce Lee, and America was under the spell of any thing to do with martial arts. It seemed like a dojo opened up on every street corner. Okay, maybe I am exaggerating but it was overnight and all of a sudden there it is, a martial arts studio.

How was I to know that America loves fads and most Americans follow trends. America`s love affair with the martial arts only lasted a couple of years, but I was hooked. This skinny, shy, introverted 10 year old readily identified with the calm graceful demeanor of Bruce Lee`s character. This event changed my life just as 10 year old boys who saw Star Wars in 1977 were changed.

So being 10 and not knowing too much about the world I didn`t know Bruce Lee was dead. I was devastated to say the least, and it is a shame because Bruce was taken from this world too early. He was on his way too becoming a major star. So I had found a hero and lost a hero. What`s a poor boy to do but lose himself in his weekly dose of comic books. Hey, we didn`t have cable TV, Nintendo or the internet, so comics were my form of escapism.

In December of that same year I was picking up my weekly comics when I noticed a comic book with a martial arts hero on it. The comic was called "The Hands of Shang-Chi - Master of Kung Fu" and needless to say I plopped down my 20 cents and proceeded to make a mad dash for home, then poured over every page as if it was the Dead Sea Scrolls. And yes I still own the comic, geek that I am.

Anyway, you're probably asking yourself "What does this have to with dating Chinese women?". Well my friend, in the comic series we are soon introduced to Shang-Chi`s future love interest the beautiful Chinese-British woman spy Leiko Wu (Leiko is actually a Japanese name meaning arrogant). This was a woman who I was immediately attracted to, a woman with style, grace and hidden strength These events crystallized in my cerebellum and since that time I`ve always been attracted to Asian women, particularly Chinese women.

As I got older and starting dating women I had always hoped I would get a chance to date an Asian woman, but they seemed few and far
between, meaning I didn`t live in Chinatown. The only Chinese women I ever saw were in Chinese restaurants and believe me when I say I would gawk at them and think of ways I might be able to date one. But oh where to start. Wait! I don’t know what to say, beads of sweat pouring down my face. I never did muster up the guts to ask one out and it sure looked like I would never get a chance to date an Asian woman.

But then one day at my job I was working in at the time, a beautiful Asian woman came in the store, she and I struck up a conversation and she had agreed to go out on a date with me. I felt like I had just won the Lottery. This woman, who is half Japanese and half Irish, was bar none the prettiest woman I had ever dated but the romance was short lived and that was that. I never did get a chance at dating an Asian woman until I happened upon the ChinaLoveMatch site and I met a beautiful Chinese woman currently living in Shanghai.

ChinaLoveMatch`s tagline is "Chinese women turn dreams into reality" and I can vouch for the truth in those words because I haven`t even met my special lady yet but will soon as I am going to be taking a vacation and flying to Shanghai to meet her and I feel like I just won the Lottery again. So fellow members there will be plenty of articles to follow on dating a Chinese woman and the trials, tribulations and fun involved.

I'm just wondering how living in China is, compared to living in S.E. Asia. I am planning to move to S.E. Asia from Canada as I have always enjoyed the laid back feeling out there, plus the friendly smiling women and great food. Plus the much lower cost of living, beaches, islands etc.

I have always had this big negative feeling about China--not as a visitor--but to live---sort of like another India--overcrowding and masses of people and huge bureaucracy. I have never visited China, except Taiwan and HK, which I really like. But I get a lot of negative comments from other non-Mainland Chinese about China. Its all about the people there--nouveau rich and greedy, aggressive, scammers in business etc. I don't need a lot more stress in my life. However, curiousity may eventually get the better of me. I'm headed for the Philippines and Thailand for the time being.

Do Chinese women care for older men? I get the feeling that they are a lot more liberated and demanding, hence, they would prefer around the same age group. I understand divorce is on the increase in China.

Anyways, I'm from Vancouver, of Chinese ancestry but my ancestors left there over a hundred years ago. I cannot speak Chinese and I know they are going to make the same stupid comments about me being "Chinese" and not speaking the language and who knows what. Do you know any American or overseas Asians living and working there? How do they make out Dating wise. I kind of get tired of these dating sites, where the women often say, no Asian guys only white guys. hahahaha They probably think I'm another wife beating male chauvinist???? When in reality, I'm just another
beaten down N.A. pussy whipped guy who has gotten the raw end of divorce, asset wise and family wise. Plus over here, older guys have the dubious pleasure of only being able to date our own age, in which case I'm celibate now until I leave this country!

Hello rgk1048
This is my perspective and take a grain of salt with it for it is a limited perspective
in regards to some of your questions/concerns.
Having spent time in China now I understand your concern with overcrowding
having been in Shanghai which is massively populated there are people everywhere
but it is not aggressive as large American cities are, but I do feel that China is becoming more like the U.S.A especially in regards to the nouveau rich, that arrogant, me first yuppie attitude! I did see a little of that when I was there and as China`s economy grows so will it`s problems, things will be better for some and worse for others.
In regards to your concerns with Chinese women I think you will have a better chance at a long term relationship if that is what you are looking for.

To further expound on your questions on Chinese women.
Yes divorce is on the rise in China because Chinese women have many more options available to them and why should they stay in a loveless marriage with a husband who doesn't respect them and cheats on them with other women, they are looking for a partner who loves/respects and honors them.I really believe the majority of these women
are looking for a good husband/family man regardless of age or nationality and so that also requires you to ask of yourself what are you looking for in a partner/wife.
As far as the age issue I don't think that will be a problem for you and you could realistically expect a 10 year age difference.
Just be your self and know what you are looking for and you will find it.
Good luck in your search.
