    Sounds pretty interesting. It is amazing how some people meet, especially when they are from different countries. I like exploring the cross-cultural aspect of dating. I wish there was also a book like this about mixed couples in China.

    It sounds like a really interesting book! I think cross-cultural couples should be aware of the degree of misunderstanding that they are likely to have down the line. It is one the biggest challenges of cross-cultural dating, but it can be overcome with some dedication and willingness from both parties.

    “It was interesting to re-discovering my own culture.” This is so true. Until I saw my white family’s holiday meals through my husband’s Asian eyes, I didn’t realize how strange it might seem to have a meal secondary to the mealtime conversation.

    According to Andy: “I think I know now why you all have such small mouths. It’s great for talking really fast. It’s not so good for actually consuming food.”
