Originally posted by molotovious. I was adopted before I was half a year old by a white American single mother, and later raised by two white American parents once she married. I grew up in a largely white portion of the south and went to religious schools with largely white populations My mom did not adopt me from some misguided Christian white supremacist stance of saving me. Every adoption story is different, and as far as I can find, you only have the one POC profile on Chinese adoption and I wanted to give my point of view for variation. Also sorry this is super long, I just wanted to be thorough. Again, not something I consciously thought about when I was younger.
Dating Chinese women and finding…. Aside from your random experiences with the ABCs in your home country or the immigrants in your local Chinatown; aside from the Chinese primer your company provided for you; have you done your own research about dating Chinese women and about cross-cultural relationships? You want to start dating Chinese women with the serious intention of marrying one, or The One; but, of course, you will most likely go about the dating process and your search for your Miss Right the way you have always done so in your country — that is, you will want to meet and date several Chinese women and take the time to get to know them before even considering pursuing a more committed relationship with one of them. For the Chinese ladies, however, the initial encounters may already carry with them the expectation of marriage. You must understand that this expectation is mostly brought about by the immense pressure for these women to get married right away.
