I suppose we all grow up with stereotypes of people, races, cultures, and so on. I know I did. From my earliest days, I knew I had to get to China.
And, hell yes, many of those earliest stereotypes were about Chinese girls. Where they came from, who knows?
I am sure television, comics, tales from my uncle who fought in the war there; all these things contributed to the image I had of China.
Well, one of the deep-rooted memories or ideas I had about China was the porcelain-fragility of the Chinese woman. Of course, like most stereotypes or idealizations, it had a shed of truth but was far from the whole picture.
I say all of this because beautiful 25 year-old Nan comes so close to a picture of that ideal I formed so many years ago. Her pictures have an almost ethereal, slightly out of focus calm to them. You’ve got to check them out to see what I mean.
Damn, I’m American, and I have to say, I don’t meet women like that here. Probably explains why I love
foreign women; I have to have some of that exotica (both real and imagined).
And if you haven’t been with a beautiful Chinese girl, you won’t understand how that fragility is both real and also masks a steely harshness, an ability to take on any and all challenges in life.
Now I’m gonna leave you with a quote from Nan’s dating profile which I relly like:
Open your heart to all possibilities; be a lover, a healer, a balm to all, rich and poor, learn to laugh, especially at yourself, own up to your mistakes, take note of your accomplishments, be a team player and do it with kindness, be thankful and share it, be happy, be kind, be joyful, reach out and smile, smile and always stay an enthusiastic student of life!then you will gain wonderful life.
