    I think love is very complicated problem , which I have seen till now , at least when I started a friendship , I can never forecast the future. i think there are many impractical love in any countries , not only with Chinese .

    The body language in that photo is very telling, isn’t it?

    I’m kind of fascinated by the kind of love Frank described. When people are passionately and madly in love they can bring each other a lot of joy but also a lot of pain. In the relationship Frank describes, there are probably fewer highs but also fewer lows. I wonder if, net-net, you get the same level of happiness out either relationship?

    it’s not you, it’s him. He sounds like he’s programmed to bring his traditional values to his next kins. alot of chinese parents are still pretty ethno centric about their ways.
