Hello all. It has been a while since I have posted around here! My internship, school, and research grant I am writing takes up most of my free time these days >__< however, I value your time, so I will get on with the post I suppose...
After I spent last summer working in China and ever since I got back to the U.S. I noticed some changes in myself. One that I have been "keeping an eye on" for a while is the fact that I have pretty much lost any interest in being with "Western Women". I find myself these days more attracted to Asian(primarily Chinese) women than I am to Western Women. In fact Western women are pretty much a complete turn off for me, whereas just 9 months ago they were a turn on for me.
Basically I just find Asian females much more interesting. The Chinese girls that I am friends with live a much more interesting life than many western girls I have known in the past. Most of my Chinese friends are exchange students/ recently immigrated to the U.S, they speak Chinese and English fluently, and have a culture that I find absolutely fascinating. Since I can speak a fair amount of Mandarin, I am able to converse with my Chinese friends and practice my command of the language. I love to learn about the Chinese culture and many other things. This, amongst other things is why I find Asian people and Chinese people so interesting, which stems to why I think I am now more attracted to Asian/Chinese women more so than Western women.
I am wondering if anyone else had ever experienced a shift in attraction to certain genders, races, etc and why you think that happened/what caused it. I hope this post doesn't seem too "Yeah...and your point is". I am at a bit of a loss of words for how to describe my perspective on this and the why I have experienced this shift (not saying it is a bad thing!). Anyway, I would love to hear some feedback from your own experiences and your ideas as to why you think this has become the case for me.
谢谢你！ (Mandarin for "Thank you")
