A few of the public restrooms threw me for a loop as well. There were no commodes just little holes in the ground. I was like wow! lol
The "smells" on the MRT, enough said...
My apologies if this upsets you, but if that is your picture on your nick, then i would be be staring at you too, "You are very attractive" and I wouldn't be able to keep my eyes off you either! I'm British by the way, not that it makes much difference.
When i take my 8 year old daughter who is mixed, I get stared at all the time, again she is very beautiful and attracts photographers as well. In Taiwan photo's had been published in magazines without our permission, which i found quite annoying, and did something about it.
I'm afraid that beautiful looking women, will always get stares.
In mainland China back in 1992, Tiananmen Square, I was surrounded by farmers from the Country side, they had never seen an hairy chested foreigner, and wanted to pull the hairs on my chest!, Thank god I only had two buttons undone
You get used to it, or just go up to them and say do you know me! Of course it can happen for many reasons, but don't let it get to you, be confident and go for it! Pop the question if they make you feel uncomfortable.
