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.”

Thank you for your help. I now know the ending to this story.

"I suggest (the ladies) criticism is misguided....... we 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. "

Thank you for helping defend me from a gaggle of Chinese ladies, John. (rofl)

In all honesty, the only person who really matters to me is Tina herself. So whilst I do take notice of what others say, Tina has the final word.

You were quite correct when you suggested everyone should wait to see what the final outcome is between Tina and I.

In the meantime however, if anyone feels the urge to criticise me, I say bring it on! Take your best shot!

I enjoy a good verbal controversy and am more than willing to happily dish out as much as I receive! (punch)(punch)(punch)

"if a man really loves his woman is definitely not written out for everyone to see themselves and each other's privacy."

You have indicated that if a man truly loves his lady, then the tale of love should not be written about. I assume the same goes if a woman wants to exultantly write about her wonderful new man.

You feel that men or women who find endearing romance through this website should not describe happy stories about it on either the forums or the blogs?

What should we all write about here then? Let me think..... perhaps we should all concentrate on politics, house design and travel in China?

What a great idea. These are the aspects I'll concentrate on henceforth. We now have to make a proclamation though - based on your thoughts - that no more uplifting stories about love or romance are allowed on CLM.

Thanks you for your suggestion, HZDX6167. I'm sure the management here will be most pleased with your eye opening concept! (party)

如果我现在想交一个笔友练习英文或一个异性好朋友交流中西方的文化,那和B这么扯大锯,老家门口唱大戏般地扯淡没关系,问题是很多女性在这里是非常认真严肃地,而类似这号人,群众的眼睛是雪亮的,大家都是过来人,而且从旁观者来看最清楚了。 类似他这样的就是来寻乐子找刺激的,如果这里都是他这样的行为和态度,我想会让很多中国女性失望的。 除非他棋逢对手地也碰到一个像他那样喜欢这种交往方式的女性尚可。

"I now know the ending to this story."

Are you sure you know the ending to this long and winding tale, Melcyan?

If so, would you like to place a small wager on what you think will happen - $100 or so?

I'll be glad to take your money, er, sorry - have a bet with you.

Simply send a note to the site management as to what you think the ultimate result of my story will be and if you're correct, you'll win $100. If you are wrong however, of course I know you'll pay whatever money is owing. I'll nominate your nearest branch of the RSPCA to be the recipient of the money.

Feel free to try your luck, Melcyan. Come in spinner! (dance)(beer)8)

Mate, you knew that you were going to be reamed a second arsehole for this blog. You were warned about it enough times
Spending time in China is not the same as LIVING in China!
I am beginning to understand our late friend Gareth more and more each day and I have only lived here for about 7 weeks

Sorry mate, but I think that when "Miss Trabbot" posts your part 3 then you are going to get a third asshole reamed and probably a new one for every part that follows

It's not a particularly good feeling to say to someone "I told you so" but at least it feels good to know that I am right once in a while - even if my efforts have been totally wasted

Ni hao,wo de peng you.

Xie xie for your comments, Anon13154.

I hope to read more thoughts and ideas from you in the future. You seem to have a good head on your shoulders and a quest for learning. This site is enhanced by participatory people such as yourself.

Best wishes to you, my friend. Zaijian. (wasntme)

Xie xie for your comments, Anon13153.

Whilst I disagree with most of what you said, I will defend to the death your right to say it.

You may class me as an arrogant Westerner who continually speaks ill of Mother China but please let me assure you, the reverse is the case.

Unfortunately many (or perhaps most?) Chinese ladies cannot understand or discern Western humour when they come across it. Often it is taken as being insulting or rude, rather than droll or comical.

This subject has in fact been spoken about at length previously on this website. Being a long-termer here, I clearly remember past discussions on the topic.

Most Chinese ladies when reading my words thus often take what I say as being gospel fact, when actually I'm speaking in a humorous or waggish vein, not wishing in any way to be serious. I lean toward trying to be entertaining or playful, rather than exhibiting pedantry or pedagogery.

So what should I do here when penning my articles? Write them in a one hundred per cent serious fashion? Or try to lighten them up a little, with a jocular remark here or there?

The problem is that if I attempt a Western style witticism, almost certainly this will be misinterpreted by most Chinese ladies as being some sort of insult. Yet if I do not inject a little levity or fun into my articles, they'll tend to become dull and boring.

Let me conclude by saying that I love China. I love Chinese. And much of what I write in my articles is NOT meant to be taken literally. Please hear what I'm saying, all the many dear Chinese ladies who hate me out there.

Peace to all.

Zaijian. (sun):)
