I am looking for friendship and want to make foreigners love my country - Viet Nam.
At least that has been the experiences of my friends, and one guy was 48 when he was dating a Vietnamese woman. then of course there are the ladies who are in awe of me doing it .. get to know her first before doing anything stupid.. While some asians practice a reserved and quiet public facade, they can be quite different in a private or domestic setting.
Vietnamese or not, if there is someone you are interested in seriously, and want to make the best impression,then err on the side of: respect, courtesy, kindness, listen, take the time to get to know her, what her values are, what is important to her in life. but enough to where I step back and think on wether I want to play the 20 question game or not anymore. I mean they ask me questions like "why are you opening the door.. The most aggressive american woman I have known was not 1/10th as fearsome and firey as the asian women I have known.
Dont rush touching her or moving fast on physical intimacy. We were talking about this the other day at work, how it impresses us, and also how rare it is (we are women in our 45s-55s) even if it feels or seems "formal" things like polished manners, holding doors, giving her genuine compliments, treating her well.....those are important Vietnamese or not, if there is someone you are interested in seriously, and want to make the best impression,then err on the side of: respect, courtesy, kindness, listen, take the time to get to know her, what her values are, what is important to her in life. I know I get 20 questions when I show chivalrous actions towards the female.. Recognize that your culture is going to be different from hers and she is not going to completely adopt your way of doing things any more than you will adopt her ways.
If you become a couple, everyone else will see your mixed races and throw these stereotypes at you and you'll see how hurtful and asinine they are.
Don't EVER try to apply them to someone you want to be your S/O.
