Asian Dating - Respect and HonourWritten by Frank Duru
Honour and respect are two of most important elements in Asian culture, and they shouldn't be overlooked when it comes to dating. For instance, traditionally, Asian women are taught at a young age to know their place around men, treat them with respect and accommodate them, while men are taught to protect and provide for women. Although these traditions have become a faded practice in Western culture, respect still plays an important role in Asian dating scene.
If you are Asian and are seeking a serious relationship with a man or woman from your ethnic culture, you will need to take into consideration that every move you make could be watched carefully by your partner's family, who may very well act as third party to your date. With this in mind, here are a few tips you will want to think about when you begin dating:
Make an Impression -Be on your best behaviour. Listen to your date, create casual conversation, and be accommodating and thoughtful.
Treat your Date with Respect - Remember saying "treat others as you would like to be treated", well this is when it really counts. Be considerate and patient, even if you find topic of conversation to be of little interest to you. You should acknowledge what is important to your date and respect it.
Give them space - You don't want to come on too strong in relationship, as this could either scare off your date, or make him or her jump to wrong conclusions. Creating a comfortable dating experience is best way for you to discover if what you have found is an acquaintance, friend or potential lover.
Only You Can Decide If Your Interracial Love Will Stand the Test of TimeWritten by Frank Duru
Interracial dating has really evolved over past two decades due to fact that younger generations have had chance to grow up in multicultural communities, allowing them to interact and make friends with individuals from a variety of cultural backgrounds. Although this has provided them with a different perspective and fewer prejudices, in most cases their parents and grandparents disapprove of their children mingling with others, whom they consider to be “not like them”.
This ever rising diversity in culture can often leave older generations feeling defensive and fearful over loss of their own cultural traditions and values, if their children choose to seek an intimate relationship with someone of a different ethnic background. Some people also fear that if their children begin to join with those from different races, their individual ethnic community will begin to shrink, while others are simply afraid of what they do not understand.
If you are someone who is interested in seeking interracial dating, you need to understand that there are potential challenges that await you and your date. You can be sure that there will always be those who disapprove of interracial mixing, and that being case, you should prepare yourself for shocked or negative reactions that you may experience from certain public places, and perhaps from yours or your date’s family, relatives and maybe even your friends.
