This post — a perennial favorite among readers — offers some great suggestions. Another classic Ask the Yangxifu post about what I refer to as the “dating limbo” — a time when even though you’re not quite sure if you’re dating him or not, he might actually be into you. I maintain a page that, chances are, might answer that burning question on your mind right now. These true stories of other Chinese men and Western women in love cover their dating experiences — so you can learn about dating Chinese men from many more voices than my own. I’ve compiled a list of all books that feature Western women and Chinese men in love — some are better than others in offering a glimpse into the dating experience, but all of them will help you realize you’re not alone.
Additionally, I also posted about memoirs that feature Asian men and Western women in relationships, since many of their experiences have resonated with me and others in the community.
One date alone cannot possibly even scratch the surface of what dating Chinese men is really like. First of all, I’ve used “On Dating Chinese Men” in the title of this post.
De Young says he encountered many blacks who said they wanted a racial timeout on Sunday."They would say, 'I need a place of refuge,'" he says.It always amazes me when people judge an entire population of people based on just one date alone.But people do it all the time — including the author of this blog post.Sheppard says the experience demonstrated why racially integrated churches are difficult to create and even harder to sustain.
Some blacks as well as whites prefer segregated Sundays, religious scholars and members of interracial churches say. Only about 5 percent of the nation's churches are racially integrated, and half of them are in the process of becoming all-black or all-white, says Curtiss Paul De Young, co-author of "United by Faith," a book that examines interracial churches in the United States.She misleads people by titling it “On Dating Chinese Men” — when it really ought to be called “My Bad First Date With a Chinese Man.” But here’s another thing that really troubles me.When you do a Google Search for “dating Chinese men” (with the quotation marks), her post comes up as the number one result."It's not all 'Kumbaya' and 'We are the World,' " says Sheppard, the pastor of the Northern California church, who was raised by his father, a Baptist preacher, in the black church."There are plenty of skirmishes." Can't we just be Christians? That's one of the first questions interracial churches must address."One man asked me if I was prepared for a hostile takeover," says Sheppard, pastor of Abundant Life Christian Fellowship in Mountain View, California.
