Barry from Australia is a questioning soul who looks at social issues from an alternative point of view and instead of asking, “Why?”, he asks “Why not?” He’s convinced that many of his previous incarnations were spent in China. He feels drawn to the people there; attracted by their rich culture and way of life. If given one wish from God, he’d reply, “I want everyone on Earth to be the same colour, speak the same language, and treat each other as they themselves would like to be treated.”

我觉得我还是停止谈论,如果继续我觉得我是疯了,我的男朋友告诉我,少看这些没营养的写作。否则我也会变疯子的。所以祝福你们,最好会像你所说的一样,你们经历过婚姻所以考虑漫漫来,当然最好不要成为笑柄。我作为一个中国女人,我只提出我的观点,即使一个女人离婚多少次,既然她付出了身体和心,那么她不可能不想和这个男人结婚。所以你以为你了解中国的离婚女人,其实你一点也不了解。你也的确说对了,在我看你那么多的博客以来。从没有感觉得出你看 得 起我 的国家。所以我 也的确是这样的意思,要不做个真正的男人,要不就 闭嘴。中国还有一句名言送给你们两。”一个愿打,一个愿挨。“好好品位,不懂可以问蒂娜。她一定可以很好的解释这句名言。我是地球人,所以我还是回来和我男朋友腻歪吧。好运。别回复我了,真不会继续看下去了。

Hi Barry, Karita Mattila is Tina, the translation is funny.
I read the comments here, and there is something I also want to say, I think that it is not appropriate for you to expose Tina's pictures, it is nice to read your blogs here, but you are not sure now if you will have a future with Tina, maybe it is better to protect Tina by not let out Tina's personal information, like her town's name, her pictures and anything that may expose her identity.
I remember you said before, that Tina agreed for you to put her pictures here, but IS Tina very clear about what your thoughts, that you are not sure now if you will have a future with her?
By common sense, I guess Tina may think that you would marry her soon, and that is why she agreed to let you put her pictures here, I remember I even saw her daughter's picture here once.
Even by some reason, Tina doesn't care about your exposure of her on the internet, but due to the deep thought of you about this relationship with Tina, is it better to protect her by not expose her info.? It doesn't affect the whole story you are telling us by exposure of her pictures.
Good luck to you.

"In Chinese, this is bullying"

Ni hao HZDX6167.

I still do not understand why you are being so tough on me? Please remember what I said, that I only ever want the very best for Tina and would never harm or hurt her.

Thank you in advance for both your appreciation and understanding of my sincere words here, HZDX6167. (f)

You asked me to not reply to you, yet I feel it would be a little rude to not at the very least, thank you for your words.

Please know that I have read what you've said and whilst I do not agree with everything, I nevertheless value and appreciate the time and effort you made in writing them. Please keep reading my articles and hopefully you will eventually come to understand more accurately how very highly I regard China generally and Chinese ladies in particular.

Xie xie, my friend. (y)

"He should take a mirror and look at himself, some sisters say that his general appearance, but in China, he is ugly, and soul as well."

Thank you for your comments, Anon13140.

Please know that I am old enough and mature enough to not let my "ugly" appearance worry me too much. I like to think though that my soul is not ugly as you suggested. But perhaps this is a translation error?

The main thing I care about - the bottom line - is that both Tina and I can love each other. Everyone else is not so important, including you, my dear friend. ;)

"I think that it is not appropriate for you to expose Tina's pictures"

Thank you for your helpful advice, Belle777.

I shall do what you suggest, as it seems quite reasonable to not show Tina to the world unless she is in full knowledge of this. In fact, I had a picture of Tina in my forthcoming Day 22, Part 3 article but I have now removed it, replacing it with another image. I'll most likely post no further pictures of here here.

If for some reason Tina and I broke up, then I would request that all photos of her be removed from my series of blog articles. This then would allow her to move forward with her life, should this eventuality ever unhappily occur.

Once again Belle777, let me say that I found your thoughts to be very reasonable and refreshing. Thank you for taking the time to write to me. (f):)

Barry seems to have come under a bit of a concentrated attack here for "not respecting Tina", or worse for somehow "disrespecting Tina" by a number of the Chinese women. I think it's important that we all keep in mind that Barry's posting of these blogs, for a lot of reasons including my intentionally dragging them out so they get more reads before the next one is published, is happening long after the events described.

So try to remember that while Barry is not disclosing what is happening in his relationship with Tina at the present time (now) he does know what is happening. He isn't telling us whether he and Tina are committed yet to a long term relationship, because that would spoil the mystery. But that doesn't mean they are not now committed to a long term relationship, we just don't know.

So I suggest your criticism is misguided. Reader's can't presume to know what is going on in the writer's mind and criticize him/her for what they are writing in advance of knowing the final outcome. If, at the conclusion of this series, it turns out that Barry and Tina do not go on to marry or at least commit to a life together, then you might be quite right to level your criticism at him, but until we know that, you owe him what we call "the benefit of doubt" and should assume that he is now doing or will do the honourable thing, and will not disrespect or betray Tina's honour or her feelings.

Instead, I suggest we should level our criticism at Barry solely for those things that he is guilty of beyond any doubt, such as making us contemplate the subject of human feces far beyond what any normal reader can, or wishes to, endure. (rofl) (puke)(wasntme)

What say you Barry?

"Barry, poor guy, you don't know chinese culture. In china, once you sleep with a woman, that means you are supposed to marry her. if you haven't had this thought yet, that means you are not serious, but just goofy around."

Thank you for your thoughts, Anon13129.

Though I have a vague suspicion this post is not genuine, that it was perhaps written by a troll, trying to stir things up.

If you are indeed a troll, I say well done. I like a bit of stirring and do enough of it myself to both recognise and encourage others to do it similarly.

If you are not a troll however, then let me advise that if you keep reading my series of blogs, the answer will become clear soon enough one way or the other, whether I am truly goofing around or not. So please stay tuned! :D(beer)
