Caucasian Girls

Today I will do my part for the environment and recycle a comment I wrote in Sam de Brito's blog, "All Men are Liars*", and use it for this blog entry. The below text is an edited version of what I wrote before:

...

I am a Chinese male but have been an Australian for most of my life.

I have often openly expressed to my (mostly Asian) friends that I prefer the feature and attitude of oriental women. What I don't openly admit to is that I am also very attracted to Caucasian women.

But due to my (perhaps sub-conscious) understanding or delusion that Caucasian women are inherently not attracted to Asian men, I do not commit the social faux pas of chasing after Aussie girls.

...

Allow me relate a tale of my youth. When I immigrated to Darwin nearly 20 years ago, I fell in love with the Aussie lifestyle here.

The beauty of the English language in poetry and songs. The diversity of culture and people of this free country. The greenery and open spaces on this wide open land...

And the cute Caucasian girls at school...

The fine olive skin of the Mediterranean girls. The blonde locks of these exquisite goddesses. The large sapphire blue and jade green irises they possess.

And freckles... WOW-wee, what heavenly delights... :-)

(To be perfectly balanced, I must say I find Caucasian's larger bust size very pleasing to my pubescent eyes as well :-)

...

There is one girl at school which I find absolutely irresistible... Wow, how do I put this... think of a very young Nicole Kidman with wavy strawberry blonde hair and just a splash of freckles on her button nose and the cutest of cheeks.

How I adored and worshipped her...

She was into drama, so instinctively I signed up for the drama club. She was vice-captain of the softball team, heck, I'll try-out for the team (never mind that I had the athletic ability of a mouldy tree stump). She played touch-footy, I'll ditto that... Martial Arts, ditto again...

Everything she did, I try to do, poorly I might add... (except for drama which I excelled)... but I guess it was beginning to be obvious that I was stalking her!

On top of my near constant presence, I had confessed to my school friends that I have amorous feelings for this curious flaxen-haired creature. And naturally the rumours of this chubby Chinese bloke hankering for a fair Caucasian girl found it's way to her ears.

...

Unfortunately, when the opportunity arise one day, she pulled me aside and told me under no uncertain term I was to go anywhere near her again. Apparently, I was screwing things up for her. I was cramping her style.

I was devastated.

...

Truthfully, women are women. Caucasian, Asian or otherwise. They are beautiful in their many qualities.

But to this day, I cannot fully reconciled my repressed fear of European women and their (supposed) distaste of the Asian males. I just cannot look at an Aussie girl any way other than a beautiful mythical unicorn, magical yet completely out of reach.

Reinforced by Hollywood stereotyping of Inter-Asian-Caucasian relationship (examine the Hollywood movies of stars like Jackie Chan, Jet Li and Chow-Yun Fat, how often do they score with the Caucasian leading ladies?)

There is still a lot of baggage for me to unload...

hmm... actually personality-wise, caucasian girls suits me better. But culture-wise, think we still have a bit of gap.

I remember right at the start of Uni, I had one that digs me. Now why-o-why I got freaked out back then?

Coz I haven't meet gord, ll and gnaphos yet.

I forgot abt that... what was her name again?

Four worlds for you “Russian mail order bride”. They are guarantee to love you for your personality and promise not to take all your money within the first 24 hrs :)

There's a notion that girls usually look for guys that are similar to dads and boys looks for ladies that are similar to their mums. The idea is a bit sick but I think it's applicable here.

Louie.

Umm...shouldn't sign my name like that...stupid email habit!!! Gord, could you censor my name out of the previous comment…I want to remain a man of mystery so gl wouldn’t know who I am :)

Gord said...

sorry buddy, blogger doesn't let you edit posted comments, just unmoderated ones... I cant even delete them., just hide them but if I hide them I have to hide all of them :-(

I don't understand your comment about the Oedipus Complex (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oedipus#The_Oedipus_Complex), how does it apply to me?

"...Unfortunately, when the opportunity arise one day, she pulled me aside and told me under no uncertain term I was to go anywhere near her again..."

The girl want someone like her dad...you'll have to dye you hair red and do a James Bond style "Die another day" kind of plastic sugery to get anywhere close.


"...I have often openly expressed to my (mostly Asian) friends that I prefer the feature and attitude of oriental women..."

you are one weird dude NotTheLouie...

If you try to follow her footstep, you would never been able to beat her.

To get the person admire of you, you have to first know the person's interest, their strongest and weakest.

Make yourself knowledgable about all her interest, excell at all her weakest, able to compete with her general interest.

However, the most important point here, you must not beat her strongest, leave that one alone; in fact, it would be best if you make it your weakest instead by never even attempt it.

Gord said...

words from the master... I will take heed of your teaching and improve myself.

gl said...

I think gnaphos has enlighten us here.

But damn you for not telling us this many years earlier!?!?!?!??!

ln said...

Gord...put master Gnaphos words into practice this australian day weekend...We will ask gl to judge you on your success.

gl-keep us posted :)

Gord said...

It seems that good news travel fast... but salacious gossip travel like a gazelle on speed.

I will do what I can to have a good time ;-)
