    Reading this gave me such happiness! I truly appreciate that you shared your experience! It is a bit like reading an outline of my memoir (no worries, I don’t intend to write one). Our story is How a Finnish Girl Fell in Love with a Chinese Man in America. Lol. I’m very happy for you two and hope one day we have a chance meeting in an altogether unrelated country! Good news, love birds. Chinese and Finnish make an amazing combination;)

    Brings back memories of Helsinki from a few years back….:) I wasn’t there long but I did enjoy my stay! Yet, in reading his story, I wonder how I would have responded if a woman like his GF had openly expressed her feelings to me in that manner early on….Granted, my personality is different from this guy, and I would be more wary of any such overtures….Personally, I would prefer “friendship” for at least several months to any sort of immediate “coupling” and “getting to know” the other person, first, and I’d probably try to do “a lot of research” in Finnish cultural/social traits and I would definitely ask her “plenty of questions” so I know what to expect and whether our personality/character traits can mesh, successfully….

    Thanks, Jocelyn. 🙂 It’s a lovely city and I suppose, if I had chosen to stay there longer, perhaps I could have found “romance.” 🙂
