If you want to read about bragging stories of all those Western guys who get laid a hundred times per day, then you came to the wrong place.

There are tons of blog posts like that out there. You might ask yourself why is that? A lot of Japanese women want a guy that tells them several times a day how much he loves them.

For some reason maybe through the consumption of too many Hollywood movies Japanese women think that foreign men are like that! Japanese men seem to expect certain things from a woman. Things that they fear a foreign woman would not agree to do e. Another problem is that many of the Japanese men seem to be afraid of their English ability and thus fail to approach a foreign woman. Most foreign men on the other hand, have no issues approaching a Japanese woman in English — or even in broken Japanese.

These are just a few theories by friends, co-workers and myself. As a result, dating in Japan is usually quite easy for men. For some reason Japanese women seem to find even ugly foreign guys attractive ….. All in all, it is comparably easy for a Western foreign man to find a Japanese woman or to have a nice relationship here in Japan. For some guys it really gets to their heads and they start bragging about it like crazy as part of the superstar syndrome.

The complete opposite is the case for Western foreign women in Japan. As a result it is extremely tough to find a date as a foreign woman here in Japan. Some of us will go through a hard time here in Japan. It might be a different story in bigger cities such as Tokyo and Osaka with a more international community, but in smaller cities and in the countryside with more traditional ideals it can be very difficult for foreign women.

I personally know a few couples where either the man or the woman is foreign and I noticed quite a lot of differences in the kind of relationship they have. Please note that the following is based on my personal experience and that not everybody out there is like that. In relationships where the man is foreign I noticed that they mostly speak his native language. One big problem seems to be the fact that in Japan the man earns the money , but the woman takes care of it!

The man only gets a small allowance every week or month and needs to ask his wife for permission if he wants to spend any more of his own hard-earned money! Foreign guys often seem to struggle with this system. I noticed that those kind of relationships seem to work out better if they live in his home country and not in Japan.

She has studied Japanese properly or puts in a lot of effort to improve her Japanese ability even if the Japanese man can speak her native tongue. The man seems to accept that she wants to keep working even after marriage. All the couples I know of have a relatively harmonic relationship. Of course, there are enough reasons for disputes, but all in all they seem to manage better than couples where the man is foreign.

All I want you to keep in mind is that as a guy you should not let it get to your head because suddenly you get all this attention from beautiful women.

And as a foreign girl you should keep in mind that your time in Japan — at least in terms of romantic relationships — could be quite lonely at times.

As you said, everyone has their own experience, and from a language perspective, I find it interesting that, while it is my case we speak French at home, as we ended up moving here well before I knew anything about the Japanese language , every other bi-national couple that I know in town speak Japanese at home, regardless of who is the foreigner in the couple.

She can manage a budget, I suck at it, it makes sense that she do it. A very interesting point. Maybe you can also write a blog about the differences in behaviour of Japanese and western men? For us women who are interested in dating a Japanese man, to avoid any troubles.

I believe that Japanese men are more polite and serious than western men, at least, the Dutch ones I dated: Thank you very much. The universal trait is that guys are quite interested in that aspect of relationships.

There are so many taller guys out there as well. I needed one pretty bad. On arrival found out all the women working there were Chinese. Her massage was really great…. I do massage for family and friends, and when I got a massage that is crap, it is quite frustrating. Out of the blue she said that the guys in the US were bigger than the Chinese guys.

It seemed to me she had done a lot of massages and seen a lot of Chinese and US guys. You are so right! I remember your blog from a few years ago. I used to read it a lot, but then just lost sight of it! Thinking back, I think you might be onto something with foreign women having an interest in language and culture and that being a requisite for a relationship with Japanese guys. Mind, most of my acquaintances and friends that got married to a Japanese party have studied Japanese studies, so there you go.

But more women got married to Japanese men than men married to Japanese women, hmm…. Most of that is in the lewd category though, i. Dating in any culture is interesting but then to thrown in cross-cultural dating with all the hidden agendas is a complicated load to deal with. What seems to be missing is a true connection and intimacy. So I guess the lesson is not to settle in life. By the way, I enjoy reading your insightful postings. At least I hope the humor is intentional.

I look forward to reading more! Talking about relationships, no matter if cross-cultural or not, is always complicated as each is very unique and has its own story. So the mistakes are not intentional, but the humor is! Lots of foreign guys end up with really average and below average Japanese women after being in the bars every night of the week looking. Guys with skills will do better elsewhere. The men who stay all end up getting married, right?

The reality is, hooking up with Japanese chicks is a ton of work. Can you do it if you stay out late every night? But you can do that anywhere. What you said makes perfect sense to me. If you are a western guy with decent social skills, you might do better elsewhere. Having said this, if you are willing to put effort into understanding the culture, nothing will stop you from dating Japanese girls.

When I first came to Japan I thought the western men had it easy, too. Have flocks of women come to them without lifting a finger! In contrast, western women have to put in a ton of effort just to get a guy to respond back to a text message. But then, after living in Japan and later China for a long time, I started to spend more time with your average Japanese woman at the office.

I also started to see what kind of Japanese women my western-man-friends were typically dating. At first, I was jealous because Japanese women are nice, polite, absolutely adorable—basically, something I could not compete with. I realized that like in most countries, probably finding a decent Japanese woman is hard. Someone who is not only cute, but honest and interesting and looking for companionship is especially hard to find in Japan.

While it may be nice to get some girls at the bar, I think western men must find it hard to find a Japanese woman that they would actually want to have a long-term relationship with unless all they cared about was having a chick that looks hot. As for us women: It sucks that we have to put in way more effort than we should to get a man. In the USA, I walk into a bar and usually by the end of the night I guarantee a few guys will approach me.

In Japan, this hardly ever happens. But who knows, maybe all that hard work and effort into getting a man helps us get a higher quality partner in the long run. But to be honest, I thought a majority of Japanese men were quite strange so I eventually gave up on trying to find a Japanese boyfriend. And I have to disagree with foreign women speaking better Japanese than men.

I also want to say that I love the photos on your website! Keep up the good work: Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us! While reading I felt like standing up and screaming: Being so fake, putting tons of make-up in their faces and speaking like cute little anime characters is certainly not something most sane guys are looking for.

B-b-b-but men should approach me! Japanese girls are so boring and uninteresting! Cry me a river sweet-heart. I thought I had it easy in America, but when I went to Japan just for a week it was like playing life on beginner mode. I consider myself a reasonably attractive guy fit, confident, etc. Women approach me in bars, come up to me to dance at clubs, and I do well for myself on Okcupid and Tinder.

But nothing prepared me for how overtly forward Japanese women can be with their attraction. Being groped at clubs, girls giggling around me, and being eye fucked like no tomorrow on the train.

On the Rarity of Foreign Women and Chinese Boyfriends/Chinese Husbands

If not, shave her bald. Hi i am Ladyboy here came from Philippines im looking for some one. Plz give me more of Jilly She is sooo hot.

Het is een helder en internationaal boek geworden met een eigen vormgeving en pittige fotografie. Met groente, granen, peulvruchten en noten gaat ze uitgebalanceerd en gezond door het leven. Maar toch ook mag je, van mevrouw Boerdam, best Bourgondisch genieten, whatever that may be. Ze biedt oneindig veel variaties zodat er voor iedereen een recept in zit dat bij hem past. En ze laat ook zien dat je buiten de deur ook op niveau vegetarisch kunt eten.

Ik geef het allemaal door omdat het zo mooi nietszeggend is. Thug Kitchen Feestvoer Veganistisch heeft iets van een scheldwoord. Veganisten, dat klinkt niet lekker. Alsof je je ervoor moet schamen dat je geen dierlijke stoffen in of aan je lichaam wilt hebben.

Dus geen vlees, maar ook geen kaas, melk en leer. Ik vind het te streng allemaal, maar niets om je voor in de schaduw op te stellen. De makers van Thug Kitchen Feestvoer moeten gedacht hebben: Thug staat voor harde misdaad. Achterop het boek staan teksten als: Good shit worth warning.

Thug Kitchen is The Bomb. We're back to show y'all how to party like you give a fuck en: Kom zoals het hoort of kom helemaal niet. Stay the fuck home.

So where the fuck do you start. Ik hoef niet meer. Ben niet heilig, maar dit heeft geen zin zo. Aanpassen, motherfucker, staat er op pagina xiii. Maar ik ben dan ook een ouwe zak en wil het gewoon niet snappen.

Daarin voor ongeveer de helft nieuwe adressen, maar de oude zijn exact hetzelfde qua tekst en foto's. Je koopt dus voor de helft al gedragen ondergoed en dat terwijl het inwisselpercentage in Amsterdam hoog is. Misschien is de houdbaarheid van eetadressen in onze hoofdstad hooguit vijf jaar, met uitzondering van klassiekers zoals Toscanini, de gebroeders Hartering of Bordewijk en Klepel.

Ook bij de nieuwe teksten is Hoornaert soms bijna mystiek. Hij geeft veel achtergrondinformatie en weet echt van wanten. Het fotowerk van Vlegels is en blijft top. De idee van het boek en de uitvoering zijn van internationale allure.

Lekker veertien dagen hun eten eten en door de Big Apple zwerven. Het zijn voorproevers van formaat. Maar zeg niet tegen de douane dat je komt om te eten als ze je vragen wat het doel van je reis is.

Dat betekent koffer uitpakken of zelfs grondig fouilleren. Maar toch, voor wijnhandelaar Hoornaert is er niks mooiers dan de culinary bliss in NYC; een mix van de gastronomische focus, diepgang en precisie van de Oude Wereld met de speelse perspectieven en de visie van de Nieuwe. Verwacht geen complete gids, maar wel een boek vol highlights van een nauwelijks voorstelbare, eindeloze, vreemde en vrolijkmakende eetwereld.

En wat een pakkende foto's weer. Dat zal toch niet spetteren van innovatieve creativiteit? Klopt als een bus. Antonia Kogl en fotograaf Arnold Porschl maken er een culinaire wandeling van die pagina voor pagina en foto voor foto het verwachtingspatroon invult: Zelfs Stefanie Herkner van Zur Herknerin is een gebakje, al geeft ze je bij binnenkomst meteen het gevoel dat je thuiskomt.

Toch best een mooi vormgegeven boek, boordenvol recepten. Hier en daar een toppertje, zoals de opvallende gemarineerde zult met rivierkreeftjes, bonen, mosterdmayo, rucola en eetbare bloemen of de eendenborst met mango en snijbiet van de Pichlmaiers. Alleen het tempo is dat van een kuchende Trabant. De liefde voor het distillaat komt je tegemoet. Stap er maar in, in die mysterieuze wereld van likeuren, jenevers, kruiden en stoken en je bent verkocht. Jarenlang kwam ik Fanny tegen op beurzen.

Altijd volop aan de slag, altijd in diepe ernst, maar met een volle lach om de hoek. In haar boek zie je van wie ze haar eigenzinnigheid heeft, haar vader was een man van formaat. Dochterlief dompelt ons onder in de fascinerende geschiedenis van familiebedrijf De Ooievaar in Amsterdam. Ze leert ons en passant ruiken, want daar draait het om in haar ambacht. Haar bevlogen teksten zijn gelardeerd met prachtfoto's en illustraties, die op zichzelf al allerlei verhalen herbergen. Het boek zelf ruikt lekker naar boek.

Distilleren is vanouds Hollands, al kunnen de Ieren en Schotten er ook wat van. Maar de geschiedenis daarvan, daarover vertelt de Kunst van het Ruiken echt boekdelen. Een van de leukste hoofdstukken is dat over knollen en citroenen, zeg maar de lulkoek die je overal hoort over het distilleren. Als je het boek gelezen hebt, mag je meepraten. Het is een standaardwerk, zegt Felix Wilbrink terecht. En er staan ook aardige cocktailrecepten in. Alweer een mooi product van Loopvis!

Kip, koe, varken, schaap, geit, lam; ze eten zich allemaal de versuffing aan plantaardige eiwitten. Dus waarom zouden we voor die dure omweg kiezen door die beesten te eten. Voor af en toe is het lekker, voor erbij, maar niet op de schaal die we ons nu permitteren. Breng het terug naar maximaal twee keer per week en we zijn van ons hele voedsel- en drinkwaterprobleem af. Bovendien is plantaardig vaak lekkerder en lichter verteerbaar. En daarom hebben Pelgrum en Schotten de lekkerste gerechten van al hun reizen verzameld.

Reisfoto's en culinaire foto's zijn ook uit eigen keuken. Lekker boek, zonder hoogdraverij. Zeker als het gaat om boeken van bekendere koks. Tot die categorie behoort Sergio Herman uiteraard. Zijn nieuwste boek gaat over thuiskoken. Het krijgt een Engelse titel mee, waar ik me dan al aan stoor. Heeft niks met koken te maken, hoeft allemaal niet.

Dat irriteert me dermate dat ik zijn boek bijna niet echt objectief meer kan bekijken. Dan gaan we in de inleiding nog eens compleet van het ijs als ik lees: Wat een krom taaltje. En als hij het wel is gaan doen, is er iets losgeschoten in zijn markante kop. Verder is het dus wel degelijk een goed kookboek. Ik ben onmiddellijk een stuk of vijf van die magische smaakmakers gaan maken en heb in huiselijke kring succes. De recepten zijn lekker, zoals gebakken kreeft, aardappelsalade en zeetong op zijn Zeelands.

De fotografie vind ik te donker en ook behoorlijk standaard. Al met al een verzorgd boek en in die zin afwijkend van wat we van Herman gewend zijn. Hij sloeg met zijn boeken nog wel eens onbewandelde paden in, maar dat was misschien de invloed van de nu ontbrekende Tony LeDuc. En trouwens, wat is de nissigheid van een tomaat? Zij kan zich niet verzoenen met de ecologische impact van de vleesindustrie en de manier waarop er met dieren omgegaan wordt. Dus geen kip, varken of rund. Stom genoeg wel op de hoofdstukpagina's: Bij Zsazsa draait alles om wat ze uit haar tuin of kas haalt.

Ze bedenkt 's morgens wat er 's avonds op tafel komt. Verder in dit boek geen getrut over tussendoortjes, snelle happen of lunchgerechten. Komen er vrienden eten? Dan zijn er bijgerechten. Haar voornaamste zorg is hoe krijg ik het bij de kinderen naar binnen? Haar boek zit lekker los in elkaar, haar gerechten duiden op veel improvisatievermogen en creativiteit. Het is vegetarisch, maar dan op een manier dat je niet struikelt over de ethische gedrevenheid.

Smakelijke vormgeving en dito fotografie. De man die ons verblijdde met zijn boeiende recepturen voor hartige gerechten vertelt in Sweet dat zijn debuut als professionele kok bestond uit eiwit kloppen en bij zijn Londense restaurants zijn reuzenmeringues vaste prik. Voor zijn kookboek vol zoetigheden werkte hij samen met de Australische Helen Goh. Aantrekkelijke beelden van koekjes, minicakes, taarten en nagerechten. Sommige baksels ogen strak en geometrisch, andere wulps en stroperig.

De indeling is helder en bij elk recept staan bewaaradviezen of invriesadviezen. Ottolenghi excuseert zich niet voor het gebruik van suiker. Hoe kan het ook anders met zoet als thema? Hij blijft trouw aan zijn signatuur en dus vinden we bereidingen met pistachenoten, vijgen en kardemom. Aan klassiekers zoals de madeleine geeft hij zijn eigen draai door saffraan toe te voegen.

Sweet is een kookboek voor de zondagsbakker. De bereidingen zijn behoorlijk arbeidsintensief en vragen vaak om nogal wat keukenmaterialen. Interessant is de afdeling Kwarktaarten , met tips om de textuur ideaal te laten uitvallen. Tot slot nog een handige raadgeving voor wie wil bakken met rode biet: Sweet is niet baanbrekend, zoals Plenty , maar toch kan de gepassioneerde thuisbakker er veel inspiratie uit halen KM Uitgeverij: Hij lijkt te gaan voor de oer-aanpak van de jager-verzamelaar en dat geeft een apart gevoel.

Hij eert er een beetje de tijd, het weer en het licht mee. Zijn aanwijzingen zijn sterk, de fotografie van Andrew Montgomery is intrigerend en de vormgeving van Miranda Harvey in balans.

Met maar liefst recepten. Het zijn vooral haar eigen toevoegingen en zelf gevonden oplossingen die haar werk laten afwijken van standaard kookboeken. Ze is goeddeels self made en dat maakt haar aanpak interessant. Ze draagt die boodschap ook graag uit: Op die manier en bij toeval ontdekte ze bijvoorbeeld het watertandend lekkere gerecht van gebakken camembert met eekhoorntjesbrood, tijm en in port gewelde pruimen. Ze besteedt ook veel aandacht aan sauzen en chutneys waar je eenvoudige maaltijden mee naar een culinair niveau kunt tillen.

Hier en daar is ze omslachtig en gebruikt erg veel kruiden en specerijen. De meeste kook- en koopinformatie staat bij de recepten. Achterin gaat ze summier in op allerlei technieken. Wat misschien nog het meest verrast, is dat haar culinaire vorming en achtergrond weliswaar in Vermont ligt, maar dat dat net zo goed de Achterhoek had kunnen zijn. Er zijn genoeg Amerikanen die weten wat echt eten is. De vormgeving is breed opgezet, de fotografie wel accuraat, maar een tikkie somber.

Vis voor elke dag Bart van Olphen is een van de grootproducenten van kookboeken in het Amsterdamse. Hij heeft een forse schare fans, waaronder niemand minder dan Jamie Oliver, tot wiens stal hij min of meer hoort. Zijn boeken barsten van de passie voor duurzaam gevangen vis. In dit Vis voor elke Dag ruim honderd goed maakbare recepten.

Hij geeft ook een tiental technieken die je echt wel onder de knie moet hebben wil je je door de visboer niet met een onbestemd fileetje naar huis laten sturen. Wederom reist van Olphen voor zijn visrecepten door gans de wereld: Ook met visgerechten voor snelle lunches en lekkere borrelhapjes. Zoals de titel al zegt is het een viskookboek voor elke dag.

De uitstraling en uitvoering zijn goed, maar niet top. Ze gaat er prat op vooral biologische producten te gebruiken. Dat gaat met veel hygge of hyggelig, wat wij gezellig zouden noemen. Met een grote tafel voor veel mee-eters, warme keuken, veel hout, open haard.

Zelf taarten bakken en brood maken, beetje voetbal kijken, wandeling maken. Hygge is voor het hele jaar en niet alleen in de winter of met de kerst. Het kan ook aan het water of in het bos, als je het maar met elkaar doet. Dat gevoel vertaalt ze naar gerechten. Die kun je Scandinavisch noemen, maar zouden ook Gronings of Zeeuws kunnen zijn, al is boerenkoolstamppot met gerookte spruitjes en appel wel weer apart.

Hahnemann doet veel met groente en vis, maar laat ook een verdraaid lekkere geroosterde ribkarbonade zien met aardappel en appelchutney. Dan soepen, stoofgerechten, ovenschotels, sauzen en rijst. Plus bouillon als heel belangrijk voor je gezondheid en zelfs als kruidengeneesmiddel. Het zou bij de apotheker moet liggen en in de wachtkamer van elke dokter. Wat je aanschaft met bouillon is een tamelijk compleet kookboek met overtuigende fotografie en heldere aanwijzingen.

Volg daarom eerder je gevoel dan al die recepten. Haal overal je inspiratie vandaan, doe er wat olijfolie bij en maak die fles wijn open! Zit je muts goed? Allez, daar gaan we! De samenstellers, een bos Italianen en wat Fransen, blijven ons op die lollige manier van adviezen voorzien. Lollig moeten ook de portretfoto's zijn, maar door het poseren zijn ze dus schijtlollig.

Lees ook de tien geboden van big mamma. Let op gebod Dan ligt daar een verdomd uitgebreid Italiaans kookboek met een pak aan informatie en kookaanwijzingen. Hop, voor de echte Italiaanse aperitivo, insalata, pizza, pasta, carne, piatti veggie, pesce, dolci en cocktails plus nog cosi di base.

Voor sauzen en pesto's en allerhande geroosterd spul is Big Mamma toch echt wel een boek dat er tussen mag staan. Voor de prijs hoef je het in elk geval niet te laten Uitgeverij: Ze laten zien hoe je brood bakt zoals we het al jaar doen, met zuurdesem.

Meel, water, zout en de natuur doet de rest. Meer heb je niet nodig. De heren beginnen bij de starters. Hoe maak je die en hoe houd je die in leven? Daarna gaan ze, met heldere uitleg en fotografie, in op de diverse technieken. Ze prediken vooral de rust. Bij het oprekken en vouwen, kneden en vormen en daarna ook bij het bakken. Dat kan in een oven, maar ook in een Dutch Oven gietijzeren pan of op hete stenen. Mooi is ook de afdeling Wat ging er mis?

In elk geval krijg je er vijftien goed beschreven, en stap voor stap uitgelegde, recepten bij. Je wilt als je door het boek gegaan bent eigenlijk niks liever dan zelf bakker worden en iedereen ervan laten meegenieten.

Schone klasse voor weinig duiten. Elk stukje is precies honderdelf woorden lang, computer geteld. En alle gaan ze over eten en drinken.

Over het kuiltje jus dat verpest wordt door slap-gelul-telefoontjes rond etenstijd. Over de papklok van 9 uur, tijd voor de stonde op het platteland van vroeger. Over de arme grond en de kwaliteit van het Texels lam die elkaar in leven houden. Lekker niemendalletje met veel info. Verbaasd ben ik ook over zoveel kennis. Het enige wat me licht de kriebels geeft als ik in zijn vermakelijke Alleseter verdiept ben, is dat dat veelwetende er wel erg vanaf spat. En niet altijd terecht, zoals ik van echte kenner over schapenvlees en lardo, Norbert Mergen Metz, hoorde.

En dat nog wel van de Nederlandse Nigella Lawson! De titel en de boodschap van het boek is haar vroeger met de paplepel ingegoten: Dat zijn belangrijke familietradities, besloot ze, dat ga ik ook doen en dus is het in huize Vreugdenhil vaak feest.

Peruaanse kerstdiners, paasontbijtjes, gans voor Sint Maarten, stoof-es ins en kraamsoep. Net begonnen in het boek een foto met Janneke en drie vriendinnen. Ze hebben veel schik. Twee van de vier hebben in hun ene hand een glas wijn en in de andere een bord met eten.

Ongemakkelijk lijkt me dat. En dan wordt het plotseling een echt kookboek met verrassende gerechten en niet om de haverklap van de lijzig lachende vrienden en vriendinnen. Rustig vormgegeven boek met aangename fotografie. Helemaal Vreugdenhil zoals we haar het meest waarderen. De keuken van het Midden Oosten, net zo groot als Europa, is haar specialiteit. Feasts is geen lifestyle uitgave met veel foto's van Sabrina zelf.

Gewoon tientallen recepten met veel kaas, droge vruchten en allerlei baksels. Eigenlijk een heel standaard boek met dito aanprijzingen van Nigella Lawson en The Observer, alsof dat ons over de streep helpt. Chickslovefood Het daily dinner-kookboek. Dinner omdat het anders niet cool is. Dan weet je ook uit welke hoek de wind waait. Opgeklopt schuim uit weinig.

We krijgen een bak gerechten die meestal variant zijn op wat we al hadden. Plus een stuk of twintig keer de chicks amateuristisch poserend op de foto. Soms in avondjurk, soms in pyjama of in sportieve korte broek, het haar los of opgeknoopt.

Wat een mooi haar ook en wat een verzorgde kleding. Vaak eten ze uit dezelfde pan, van dezelfde spaghettistengel of staan ze raar ingespannen naar een pizza te kijken.

Wat een uitgesproken taarterigheid. Ben vergeten naar de gerechten zelf te kijken, maar die geloof ik ook wel. De culinaire fotografie is al even truttig als de portretten. Maar ja, een half miljoen unieke bezoekers per maand liegen er niet om, dus wat zeuren wij nou? Uitgeverij Loopvis geeft wel vaker bijzondere kookboeken uit. Dit boek is er daar eentje van. Marije Sietsema schreef al over pindakaas, kruidnoten en stamppotten. Ze heeft allicht aandacht voor het maken van karamel en geeft dan gerechten voor allerlei zoets.

Maar ze komt ook met karamelgerechten met witlof of gerookte zalm of Camembert. Of misokaramel bij noedels en gegrild spek.

Het lijkt me heerlijk. Een rustig, aangenaam, informatieve editie deze keer ook weer. Bier Rick Kempen weet bijna pagina's vol te schrijven over bier. Het hele hoe en wat komt aan de orde. De ontstaansgeschiedenis, de culturen, bier in de tijd, de soorten, hoe te proeven? En zelfs de gezondheid komt aan de orde. Als je dat hoofdstuk leest, weet je hoe Kempen in de maatschappij staat. Of alcohol gezond is, dat is niet de vraag, of de mensen er mee om kunnen gaan, daar moeten we naar kijken.

Dat kunnen ze niet of slecht en dus moet je alcohol aan banden leggen, de verkrijgbaarheid moeilijker maken, de accijnzen verhogen, alles. Als je de vragen over gezondheid en alcohol tenminste serieus neemt. Kempen maakt zich er makkelijk vanaf, met een lenige pen. Zijn stijl past bij een glas lekker bier.

Er is een combinatie, nee, er zijn tientallen combinaties te maken tussen jouw humeur en je eten. Boos, bezorgd of angstig? Longen en dikke darm losser maken! Lukt helemaal als je goed voor je hart en je dunne darm zorgt. Weet alles van je serotonine, endorfine, oxytocine, dopamine en adrenaline en je kunt ervoor zorgen dat je hersenen de juiste emotiemoleculen aanmaken. Want dat is de boodschap van Goedele: Eet je het goede eten, dan helpt dat. Houd de zuurgraad in balans, kies voor kleur, kies voor onbewerkte voeding, kies voor bio en vooral, stop met snacken.

Dus ondanks de irritante Engelse titel, toch een boek dat je best eens op de goede weg zou kunnen helpen. Want doodgewoon en vriendelijk. Makkelijk te volgen, met genoeg impact om je bij de groenteboer of slager nog te herinneren wat hij maakte. Knoop dat nou eens goed in je oren. Met eten kun je mooie herinneringen inslijpen.

Eten kan daarom nooit een hype zijn, zegt hij. Daar voelt hij zich te nederig voor. Je kunt van de essentie van ons bestaan geen trend maken.

Eten moet vooral gekoesterd worden en niet geclaimd. Het eten dat je maakt, zegt veel over wie je bent. Kan die Meus niet een eigen beweging beginnen, met zondagse diensten of zo? Verder een boek vol lekker, modern, internationaal, gewoon eten. Zonder franjes en met gezond verstand. Hulde ook voor de fotografie. In zijn voorwoord legt hij uit hoe je de wetenschappelijke onderzoeken moet interpreteren.

Hij heeft de nodige scepsis, want in tegenstelling tot medicijnen, zijn gewone voedingsmiddelen niet te patenteren. Onderzoeken zijn duur en als er dan geen patenten en dus winstmogelijkheden opborrelen, zijn er geen opdrachtgevers. Reden waarom er zo weinig onafhankelijke onderzoeken zijn naar gewone voedingsmiddelen. Komt nog bij, oppert Zwaan, dat verschillende onderzoeken met dezelfde insteek vaak tegengestelde conclusies geven.

Hij ziet de onderzoeksresultaten dan ook meer als indicatoren dan als feiten. De feiten bewijzen, de indicatoren niet, althans volgens de wetenschappers. Professoren beweren dat groente en fruit niet beschermen tegen kanker omdat het niet onomstotelijk bewezen is, terwijl duizenden onderzoeken de indicatie geven dat het wel zo is.

Als het niet bewezen waar is, is het nog niet onwaar. Zwaan is orthomoleculair therapeut en weet veel over voeding, supplementen, superfood en gezondheid. De achtergrondbelichting van de voedingsindustrie ontbreekt in zijn uitleg merkbaar. Hoort thuis in elke boekenkast. Het is een bewonderenswaardig mooi vormgegeven, rugloos boekwerk geworden.

Daaraan hebben diverse koks en kunstenaars meegewerkt. Ons voedsel is rijk, divers en uniek van smaak, zoals onze cultuur, dan begeef je je op glad ijs.

Tastes like Dutch is een eerbetoon aan die erfenis. Lees wat je er in wilt lezen. Kijk gewoon je ogen uit naar de mooiheid van het boek en de doorluchtige fotografie. B Een kookboek gemaakt voor iedereen die denkt dat koken moeilijk is. De kookboekengrootheid Stephane Reynaud staat altijd borg voor goed onderlegde boeken, met veel creativiteit en kennis, puike fotografie en vormgeving.

Verder best luxueus uitziende borrelhappen die in een handomdraai te maken zijn en desserts waar je het water bij uit de mond loopt.. En voor een verhoudingsgewijs schappelijke prijs. Ja, natuurlijk, er zijn genoeg titels die evenveel kosten, maar dan vaak met veel onzinfoto's van de auteur en daar koop je het niet voor als je lekker wilt koken. Een hedonist in de kelder Jay McInerney is kunsthistoricus die over wijn is gaan schrijven.

Hij is grappig, zegt de New York Times. Andere recensenten punten dat nog aan met briljant en gevat, aanstekelijk en met een scherp oog voor detail. Hij schrijft voor de wijnelite en doet dat zeker met vaardige pen. Voor de Amerikaanse wijnelite dan, want veel verhalen spelen in de US en gaan alleen al om die reden aan me voorbij, ondanks zijn vlijmscherpe geest en de kunst om de essentie te vangen van de plaatsen, proeverijen en restaurants die hij bezoekt.

Ik lees liever Nicolaas Klei of Onno Kleyn, die blazen zich niet zo op. Klei benoemt daarvan tot omfietswijnen, dus de moeite van het omfietsen en kopen waard, en 13 weggietwijnen, dus niet aanraken want dan laat de huid van je vingers los. Klei geeft wat lijsten omdat het leuk kan zijn om lijsten te lezen: Daar verzorgen ze ook kookworkshops.

De Langhe is selfmade kok. Hij stond als kleine jongen al naast zijn moeder en tante mee te helpen in de keuken. Bretagne staat voor vis en schaal- en schelpdieren, dat vooral, maar is ook een grote bron aan groente en fruit. De Langhe's aanwijzingen in het boek zijn kort en helder, de boodschappenlijstjes overzichtelijk en de fotografie van Andrew Verschetze verraadt de liefde voor lekker eten.

Voor liefhebbers van de Bretonse keuken is er een pront boek bij gekomen. Lekker eten op straat, van op hout gebakken brood, kebabs van de grill, pizza's, salades en veelzijdige familierecepten: Ze legt uit hoe gerechten zijn ontstaan en hoe zij er mee kennis maakte. Het is al zo lang kruispunt van allerlei beschavingen, daar maakt een rare pief als de huidige president geen einde aan. Hij IS wijn, dat is duidelijk.

Klei is een bescheiden man. Glas lekkere Santa Duc, open haard of gaskacheltje en dan lekker Nicolaas Klei lezen. Bietje verontwaardiging, bietje alledaagsheid, nooit weg te poetsen nuchterheid en dat gemixt in een ballet op het toetsenbord.

Ze laat zien dat je met weinig geld echt wel lekker kunt koken. Ze zijn niet gek Ze loopt ijverig en systematisch door het keukenbereik van nestverlaters, krenten en baliekluivers via rijst, pasta, aardappelen, soep, eieren, kip, vlees en groente. Volgens mij heeft ze met dit soort kookadviezen een echte kookrichting, een kookschool geopend. Er mogen ook best foto's bij als Witteman dan maar niet in bad gaat zitten of quasi spannend een bandje van haar bh laat zakken.

Nou ja, waarom ook niet, we kunnen niet allemaal Kroes heten. En let eens op de prijs voor dit boek vol kooknuchterheid. Ze helpt bij de planning. Die zie je niet vaak zo expliciet en ze legt goed uit waar de knelpunten zitten. Een kookboek dus in de ware zin van het woord. Op tv vind ik hem altijd een beetje monkelen.

Zijn boeken zijn top. Dit keer gaat De Brabander klassiek en internationaal. Hij laat zich kennen als een creatief patissier, met gevoel voor compositie en kleur. De fotografie is zonder meer goed al hadden die kleuterige teksten er niet bij gehoeven. Wie goed voor de dag wil komen met zijn taarten, snoepgoed, gebak en desserts, heeft met dit boek een uitdaging te pakken. Voor een toffe prijs ook. Patisserie en ander fijn gebak Het gaat voor de wind met de taartenbakkerij.

Ruim 2,5 kijkers vergapen zich telkens aan het patisseriegeklieder op tv. Het aantal bakboeken dat per jaar verschijnt is onthutsend en er is steeds weer een of andere tv-koekenbakker die ook een boek moet, het is allemaal veel.

En dan vooral veel suiker. Niemand staat er bij stil, maar na vier recepten heb je er minimaal 1,5 kilo suiker doorheen gedraaid. Het zou allemaal niet zo ranzig zijn als er niet in bijna alle supermarkt-eetproducten ook al zoveel suiker zit. In de verte roepen mensen dat suiker de sluipmoordenaar is, en dichterbij fleemt de wetenschapper die ervoor betaald wordt dat het allemaal wel meevalt.

En dan liggen er zomaar ruim pagina's bakplezier voor je neus. Begin bij de basis, zegt dit vette bakboek, perfectioneer je gebak en word stap voor stap een meesterpatissier.

Voortaan heeft patisserie geen geheimen meer voor je. Eddie Benghanem heeft het lijvige standaardwerk gemaakt. Hij bakt bij de Ritz en George V in Parijs. Patisserie is er om van te snoepen of te smullen of om er samen van te genieten. Allicht is de fotografie top en de vormgeving evenzo. Verder weet ik echt niet wat ik met dit pontificale bakboek aan moet.

Bijdendijk, zo heet het boek van sterren chef Joris Bijdendijk. Hij is de executive kok van Rijks, het restaurant dat hoort bij het Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Voor zijn boek verzamelde hij negentig recepten die zijn gebaseerd op de bron, de leerschool en de missie. Dus in eerste instantie familierecepten en dan zijn leerscholen bij Blaauw, Pourcel en Bridges. Dertig jaar geleden was alles Frankrijk wat de klok sloeg op kookgebied, en daar is verandering in gekomen.

We leggen nu gerechten op een bord met producten van om de hoek. Daardoor ontstaan ook iconische gerechten. Which is a shame, because I certainly am. Thanks for stopping by and posting a comment! Susan, The first and second comment are not correct at all. Good luck to you! May i just add one more point to what Susan had mentioned about Chinese men, a lot of us are good chef at home too: Food is a such important part of chinese culture that cooking is not just the responsibility of women.

I bet most of the chinese men feel the same about you. Grow up, you have a long way to go. When I was 22, moving to America was not an easy quest for me, I was considered skinny at lbs. I could not get most American girls to go on a date with me. My point is, people will always have their first impression from your outer appearance, and sometimes, you might just need to let them have it before they even get a chance to know the real you.

I can say from my personal experience, even after my transformation on my image the macho look , many white women still keep their distance from me. This is mostly because of the race issue. For some reason, more white men can easily accept Asian women than a white women can accept Asian men. I can accept racism but I refuse to believe Chinese men are less than western men in any way.

Not even handsome vs. If I could get a Chinese guy to make a move I would be so happy. Part of it is they seem intimidated. As to other expats guys! The second night I was in China, one guy asked me if I would date a Chinese guy and when I said yes, he accused me of having a fetish for small penises. What about the rampant adultery? Not only is adultery fairly common, it seems almost socially accepted and mandated. Has this been a problem for any of the couples? Perhaps it also happens that plenty of racism in China exists toward foreigners living in the country.

Can anyone explain it maybe they have already? Maybe, is it due to the lack Asian men presence in the media? Re Andrea, the problem of rampant adultery is not true even though the things appeard. At least the mainstream culture can not accept it. These historical wounds still haunt many Chinese mentally.

What Stan said is true, I believe most Chinese men have hard time to let women pick up their tab on a date. Casual dating with foreign girls is just not common in China, on top of that, i think basic communication can be another issue, how many foreign girls can speak fluent chinese and how many chinese men can speak fluent english in china?

This issue alone can eliminate almost majority of the potiential dates. I also think that bias against asian men do still exist which makes the matter even more complicated, because it becomes more than just about dating, it becomes a issue of race and chinese certainly do not take it lightly. On the mistress issue, I have to agree with Steven Chao. While I have come across some circles of men in China where mistresses are in the picture — these are often the powerful bosses, or officials, or men in high positions, usually 40, 50 years or older.

Not your typical guy, and certainly not the kind of guy most of us would end up dating or marrying anyway. Yes, this discussion is interesting. But I still think that the main obstacle here is how closed the Chinese society is.

Because in the end it ends up playing a role in the language barrier as well. And, by not engaging very much with a lot of Chinese people, the mixing just becomes a bit more complicated. I agree Chinese society is closed. But if this were the main reason why there are so few Chinese men dating or marrying foreign women, you would see the same pattern with Chinese women dating or marrying foreign men. Still, it is possible to overcome the barriers — and doing so largely depends on how you approach your experience in the country, and the kinds of experiences you have.

When I first came to China, I knew almost no Chinese — just a few survival phrases, and basic numbers. But I was curious about China, and interested to learn.

In the process, I made some amazing Chinese friends, who spoke English and became my own teachers — teaching me about the culture around me.

If you live in China as a foreigner, you always have the opportunity to have contact with the culture. Of course I meant my experience in China. You seem to put the blame on foreigners who stay in their comfort zones. But these people still hang out with foreigners much more than with Chinese. Actually, we accept them as one of our own.

So yes, I do put some of the blame on the Chinese society. But I am not blind to our flaws and I did have a very good welcome when I lived in Germany. I apologize if I sounded as though I was putting so much blame on foreigners. I can understand where you are coming from, given your experience in Brazil, and observing foreigners integrating quite flawlessly into the culture. You are right that it is not easy in China for foreigners.

I too have had moments of alienation in China. And perhaps I am an anomaly — having family ties to the country brings me so much closer to it. If you put an effort into it I believe the Chinese society is pretty open. But I kind of have a good starting point: I live in a totally Chinese area in Beijing, no other westerners is living here.

I have been very welcomed here. Yet, the great majority of their friends seems to be foreign. It makes it much easier for a foreign guy to chat up a Chinese girl in a random social setting e.

On the other hand, some Westerns girl would need a real connection to a guy to fall for him. That requires a lot of interaction. Point being, it just decreases the chances a western girl has of meeting those amazing Chinese guys out there. This is a complex issue, and all factor raised play a role in each individual case. As it has been pointed out in other comments, some really have a problem with feeling superior to the Chinese. I think one of the reasons that western women are often thought to be rich, even when they are actually not, is because they are typically a lot more exposed to the consumerism that is dominant in western culture.

By that I mean they tend to spend their money more generously and liberally than their Chinese counterparts. Fresh-off-the-boat Chinese FOBs, e. And they expect their girlfriends maybe not girlfriends, but certainly their wives to be economically prudent, too. I know for a fact that I would not be able to independently afford a marriage with any of a number of sorority girls that I know on this campus, even if I could secure the highest paying job available for a normal college graduate.

Another problem that I have encountered is religion. When I came to the states, I landed in a historically white fraternity in a state right in the Bible belt. Methodist, Baptist, Catholicism, Presbyterianism, Mennonite, etc. Even a Jewish professor tried pretty hard at one time to sell me his theology, and I thought Jews always kept their religion private from non-jews.

A lot of protestant Christian groups on campus deliberately and actively target FOB Chinese students, which can be quite disturbing and annoying. On the other hand, for a lot of people here, atheism is rather controversial, to say the least. So it just never worked out seriously with any girl of religious convictions. And those ladies who are sufficiently secularist are usually too smart to involve themselves with fraternity boys.

You say something about Western consumerism. I have to say that many a Westerners has been shocked about the materialism of China. About religion, that depends on the place. You have to understand the culture of the place you are in. I think one big reason you see so few Chinese men with foreign women is what that taxi driver alluded to.

At least that fear is what stops a lot of Chinese guys from trying a relationship with a foreign woman. Please keep up the great posts! Great to hear from another Western woman who has discovered the joys of marriage to a Chinese man!

When you find the right guy, they really can make exceptional partners, for all of the qualities you described all fitting my husband as well. It said 27 percent of mixed marriages comprised of Chinese men and foreign women — up from a few years before that. More than 60 percent said that it is normal to see mixed couples and 35 percent said that for a Chinese man it is very romantic to marry a foreign woman.

The newspaper did not provide information as to the men women ratio among the more than 10, interviewed. Until several years ago 90 percent of the mixed couples were composed of a Chinese woman and a foreign man. Now the percentage of the unions of Chinese men and foreign women has increased to 25 percent of the total. Unfortunately these marriages do not seem to stand the test of time and according to a poll carried out in Shanghai 60 percent of the mixed marriages celebrated in the period have ended with divorce.

In the same period marriages in China increased by 2. Thanks for linking my blog! Yes, I am the one and the same Jessica who you corresponded with way back in … I guess it was ? My husband is not my then-boyfriend, but a guy I met in quite a few years later. I use workaround methods, but it just adds an extra level of hassle. However, I do hope you stop by my blog once in awhile and keep in touch.

It is difficult to socialise between races. Expats and locals stick to their own enclaves. If they do meet , love can happen. Racism comes only when family and friends frown on the relationship. I am a Chinese guy who currently living in America. I can to the US when I was 16 years old, my mother married a fat, and extreamly unattrictive bold head White guy, so we could come o the US. At that time I used to only like Chinese girls cause I grow up there and watch all the Chinese movies and film where Chinese girls are beautiful.

I never even thought of liking White girls by then, cause I never even seen one. I watch hollywood movie and start to accept White beauty standard. But then after that I start to get a bit lonely cause Asian girls in America never even liked me, some Asian girls told me that I am good looking which I also aggree, but they only wants to be friend.

While most other Asian girls are SO mean. I also start to get all the Racisim bullsh! That really pissed me off. Two years later, my mom divorced her fat husband lol. She start to dating again. I thought great, mom should date a Chinese guy who will have our values and traditions.

But she did not, she dated another fat white guy cause she cannot find a good looking white guy. I asked her why? She did not say, but I was smart enough to find out that she hates Asian guys and was totally white washed by American media that Asian guys suck! So I also changed. Ever since then I start to like non-Asian girls particullary White girls. But right now, I have to stay foucs on school.

My comment on American white girls are: Most White girls in US do not like Asian gusy. However, the reason why Asian guys dont dig White girls is due to the lack of media promotion.

Off course they do not want to see Asian guys getting their women cause there are already competition from Black and Hispanic guys. A lot of White girls are into the Asian man sterotypes. That many of them are turn off by us without even know us. Please dont believe in those crap, I am Asian guy and I dont have those nasty sh! But it still hurts to hear all those stuffs. I think I am kinda mentally ill right now.

Slipknot, thanks for sharing your experience. I was really blown away by your story, and am so sorry to hear that you were mentally scarred on some level.

But deep down, it really is a double standard. In fact, a few weeks ago I saw a commercial here in the US — I think it was for chewing gum — and it showed two Asian guys living in Scotland with Scottish accents.

Media is not to blame for not letting Asian guys get with white girls, but movies do set the tone. We need more ambitious directors, producers and actors to put in some hotter scenes or at the very least a romance. And we need more hunky Asian heroes to help lead the way.

But the bigger question is: What about all the other groups in America? I think most Asian guys are just too timid, nice and kind to get what they want. You will definitely get rejected a few times. So does everyone else. You just might find the girl of your dreams, have 8 kids, then get a prime-time tv reality show. So from one Asian guy to all you other Asian guys who are or are thinking about whining: I met him through some British Hong Kong Chinese friends of mine.

None of my friends Chinese or otherwise had any problem with my boyfriend, nor did my family. What I did notice however is that when we were out, we got almost dirty looks from non British Chinese people. These kind of looks only ever came from Chinese people. We swap e-mails a few times a year.

I would also point out that this phenomenon exists in Japan as well. I studied Japanese at university and have lived in Japan.

While a student in Japan, I noticed many romances between Japanese girls and foreign men, but very few the other way round. I prefer someone to challenge me.

This is maybe cultural. I have met Japanese men I was attracted to, but as yet no romance has ever ensued. Jocelyn, here is an artical written by a Swedish girl. Her reasons are bias. But it is interesting to read. She is trolling, if you have time to read most of her posts you will find out.

She says Chinese men are not tall. LoL, yes in ShangHi. Cause ShangHI men are southern Chinese. But in Norther China. Man are much taller, close to 5. The same thing apply to White guys.

Spanish, Italian, Frence, and Portugal men are not that tall, average about 5. So, obviously this girl named Jonna is not so smart. She also talked about Chinese men are fememine, WTF. ShangHi is an old emperial city long been fed up all the western propaganda. Men there tend to think that they are inferior. And girls offtehn take adavantages of it and make their BF do things like carry their hand bags, and even tie their shoes.

But this do not apply to Northern and West Chinese men. I for one will never do those things. Again, it shows how shallow Jonna is. The current Frence president Nicolas Sarkozy is only 5. And Napoliean is only 5. Yet no one makes fun of them, oh yeah. The Frence are European, and European men are might tall and strong Sorry to say this, I mean no offence. Anyway, the apperance of a man is important but his personiality and his intellengence are also important.

I hope people dont just judge us based on apperance. However, like Chinese people. Nothing is perfect, everything has its downside like every coin has two sides. Chinese men like me are very hard working, smart, faimily orenated, have high values, taught to be loyal, and learned how to be a good father and take good care of our parants when they get old.

The down side of us, at least for Chinese men in China is that they do not have a lot of proper manner like spitting, chocking, hocking, and nose picking. Because my mother always telling me how BAD White girls are like they are not loyal, have no ethics, blah blah blah. However, it has its good sides such as clean enviorment, safe street, and great Universities.

Its bad sides are: People always make sterotypes such as Black guys are stupid, white guys have smaller penis compare to black guys, Asian guys are nerds, Mexcian guys are all gangsters…… These things divide American people and greatly hurt the national unity.

I just hope one day Coungress would pass laws to ban all sterotypes and Punish people who create them regardless of what race they are. Its good sides are: It has great infurstructure such as high way, air port, hospitals, and Universities which make living standard high and safe. I wish people especially girls also see the good sterotypes about Chinese men instead of just the negative ones.

Perhaps interracial, international dating and marriage should be expected to be rare in the first place. Here is an article that may answer the latter of the two questions. Biologically speaking, isolated populations do better at evolving traits that are adaptive to the local environment.

Reproductive barrier is a necessary condition for genetic diversity, and ultimately speciation. We would all be ethnic mud. Just like inbreeding is usually a bad thing, widespread interracial breeding, which is exactly the other extreme on the spectrum, is probably not good as well.

I am in a committed relationship with a Chinese man, and I am an American white woman. We make similar amounts of money and after much argument he agreed to let me pay a few times. We discuss politics, flaws in Chinese society, flaws in American society, love, sex, you name it we can talk about it.

Our biggest problem is that I will not stay in China, and he is reluctant to come to America. He suspects, I think rightly, that as soon as he is a Chinese immigrant in America it will be difficult for him to get a decent job.

So, in the long term I am a little worried on how we will deal with this problem when I leave. And, perhaps this is a tad inappropriate but since the topic has been broached, his penis size is above average. Our sex life has no problems. I think white women intimidate many Asian men. If you look in the above comments, the Chinese-American man who had confidence had no problem getting women. I knew a few Asian-American men in high school who cleaned up, one was even a total player landing a string of white women.

So, while there may be racism in both cultures involved I think the biggest problem is confidence on the part of the Asian men. Prior to my current wife, I have a Canadian Girl friend, who I am her first Chinese Boy Friend, I guess she was in love with me, while we are together, she has done some research and show me how the media protrait the Chinese man, basically in negative way, and how she think the misconcept should be corrected.

When I broke up with her because of my current wife We married two years later , her asked if I have found a Chinese girl to replace me now, when I told her is a Swiss, she was shock, her first reaction was — How can a Western Women fall in love with a Chinese However, she then immediately correct the statement as herself doing exactly the same.

So what if the white women reject you — is that the only race you can date? There are other colors besides white. You might be surprised. Well, how often, if ever, do you see a black woman in China? I personally lived there for more than 18 years, six years in Beijing. I can count on two hands all the black women that I had ever ever seen in Beijing in all those years, all of whom were strongers to me, and most of whom were athletes that I spotted during the Olympic games.

And I am yet to encounter a black woman outside the capital. But I used to meet white women in Beijing almost every other day, and was personally familiar with perhaps half a dozen of them.

If we are to limit our discussion to the US, it should not be surprising to see five or six times more Asian-White couples than Asian-Black couples, just because of the demographic make-up: There are simply more whites than blacks in the US. If you take socio-economic factors into account, it becomes even less likely for Asian men to meet black women, bacause the gap between Asians and blacks is greater than that between Asians and whites.

The cold reality is that all people everywhere, of all races, throughout history, just tend to marry within their own socio-economic classes. Maybe that is wrong.

But would you marry an illiterate child-prostitute with AIDS? I really wants to be your friend, i have a chinese boyfriend for 2 years already, but he went crazy. I wish you guys all the happiness in the world. I never said that I did not find Black women not attractive. I do find Hispanic and Black women attractive. But I had a lot more success with White girls.

In high school I had many success. SO Marie you do not need to feel bad, Asian born in American will have few problems accepting black women. Marcia, just tell your boyfriend you love him and get married then all problem will be solved. Trust me this works. Marcia, your boyfriend is shy because he got all fed up by Hollywook BullCrap. He lacks confident to love his white girlfriend. But he will have no problem to hold hand with a Chinese girl. However, you do not need to worry. Why not marry him and move him to United States then you will not have these problems.

Despite me living in the U. Despite this, we have overcome much and love each other. And yes, we do get alot of looks while in China, and there are alot more foreign men with Chinese women than the reverse. Also China is not as wealthy as the United States and other western countries. However this is not the main reason. So you now know the main reason. The main thing we need to focous on is sports, if we can do well in sports then we will become much stronger and much more confident then our image will change.

But Yi it is changing now. You know the recession hit western world hard and many Chinese women lost their interets in western men.

So look on the bright side. Angie, good for you that he likes you. You know that there are many guys in China like western women just like Chinese women.

However Chinese men are afraid to date you because they heard all the bad sterotypes about them and the western media and movie made it even worst.

But dont worry changes are on the way, stay positive. I have a Chinese boyfriend that moved to America 4 years ago. We have been dateing for a few months now and every day we go out to do something diffrent.

Everytime my boyfriend and I go out we get stared at and pointed to. My boyfriend Xun never said anything about it so I think he just didnt care. At first it bothered me but, I figured that if it didnt bother him then it shouldnt bother me.

My family at first didnt like him because he was from another country but, after a wile of talking about how great our relationship it they came to like him. We havent met each others family yeat. Xun and I had a long talk about it. He dosnt find it in his familys favor that it would end. He tells me just because hes from China that it dosnt make a diffrence. Hes here living in America now. I think it has been commonly said that a lot of guys may be afraid that their parents will not approve.

Did their parents ever consider that there is a huge gender disparity? Or would they prefer their son die alone? Besides, what ever happened to living your life how you want it? Only an asian woman can be so hateful. It makes me feel good that you have the fire in you to make a change, to not let others break you down. Stay strong and never give up. If you falter, it means more work for the rest of us asian guys.

This post is getting quite the buzz over the whole internet! My mom is a seflhating sell out Chinese women just like the typical Asian women. I am distant to marry White girls. I have a fantasy that is to marry a Nordic girl or American girl with Nordic desenct.

But I can not help it. This is why all of a sudden I changed myself. I care about my fashion now, I wear much better clothing to make myself look even better Since I am already a good looking guy.

I try hard to get rid of my accent, and now I speak English almost perfectly with very little accent. I work out at the gym try to get toned musle and look even better. Not only do they sell out themselves but they also make up Bullsh! Please my fellow Chinese men: I think it will. As China gets rich, it certainally will. So Chinese media will heavly promote Chinese men to date western women and more and more young, tall, good looking, rich Chinese men will be open minded to date western women.

So I think it will change too. BTW, there are already sings of Chiese media promoting such things. You will see it. Chinese men are NOT as weak and scared as western men think.

Also, I am one of those tall, goodlooking, young well educated Chinese men who finds western women much more attractive than Chiense girls and at least half of my Chinese male friends think the same way. I am a forty-one year old American lady, Read: The one time I broke free and chose my own mate, my parents stole my son and paid his father to leave with our son to another country. I have not seen my son for over fifteen years now, and I doubt he even knows who I am.

I stopped dating at first because I really needed to get my head and heart together, and, just as importantly, create a new life and sense of worth for myself. In time I enrolled in college, something my parents would never let me do, and I started my own small business.

I was in my mid-thirties before I felt emotionally ready to date again, and the expected initial disasters of being too long out of the dating scene happened, though thankfully, these mostly proved to be funny in hindsight. I thought that because he was an older Chinese man, and a government official too, that I would be a pariah to him, not the other way around.

His response to me took me utterly by surprise… I was honest to him from the beginning, though the details were spread over a few months, and I even went so far as to admit that I was on good terms with only one of my blood relatives, and I told him about my past in more detail than I related here.

He is everything I need to feel both secure and independent, a gentle and yet firmly reliable presence in my life and spirit, and we never run out of things to talk about to each other. For over a year now he has never failed to make me laugh, smile, feel optimistic, and he is loving and supportive in everything I do. He and my good relative get along extremely well, and I am beginning a great relationship with his son from a long-extinct previous marriage.

Yes, he is an extraordinary cook, and he tried to make me use chopsticks so I would eat slower than him, but the cooking is so good, I aced using the chopsticks! Above all, he is gifted with the ability to be an extraordinary companion. The perfect man for me is located literally on the other side of the planet, and I never would have found him if not for the internet and for the efforts of people who were determined to break down the barriers of ignorance, fear, and the resulting prejudices.

I have so many reasons to be grateful… We must wait two more years until he retires before we can officially tie the knot. If we married right now he would be severely investigated by his government and he would lose his retirement benefits, for which he has worked hard for over 30 years to acquire. I call, and I visit him in China, every chance I can, and it is our hope that he can move here to America with me when he retires. Well, that is my two cents anyways… Smile!

I would welcome any constructive comments regarding how to make his American citizenship any easier, and tips on how he can adjust and get a job when he arrives here. Thank you so much for your patience and regard! Wow, what a story — I am so delighted to hear from you, and to hear that you found a new life, family and home with a wonderful Chinese man.

Congratulations, and thank you so much for sharing! Thank you you for being so kind, encouraging, and helpful. Thank you for sharing your story.

You are right that Chinese men are like that. In fact I am like that too, even though I am young. I am a western girl in Shanghai and I do like the Chinese men, not too much experince but I am learning as I go along. Thanks to everyone for sharing your stories. Hopefully I will have my own story to post in the future. We have been married for 4 years and have lived both in Australia and in Thailand. I am moving back to Thailand next month so that my husband can work for their quite successful family business.

I have found that marrying a Chinese man comes with a lot of concerns. I love my husband very much but find that his family have too much influence over our life and marriage. For example, they want us to live in their house, they want to pay for everything, they get involved in issues which are really only our own. I love them dearly and am very grateful for their help, but by accepting their help I loose my own independance. Can anyone please give me advise on how to manage this situation whilst still remaining respectful of their culture and them?

You should definitely tell your husband your concerns.
