What's the same thing, but hatred of men? That's what I blame.

Oh and that's a virtue issit? A 'surrendered' woman. Stepford Wives R Us?

Only time an American woman 'surrenders' is when she thinks she's got everything she possibly can.

p.s. Why do you think so many of us here have 'married Asian'... because they project power in a graceful (but arguably even more powerful) way, they don't simply try to be men.

Sweeping statements, much?

I imagine so many men here "marry Asian", nice term btw, because they live in Asia and people tend to meet partners where they live.

Don't over-complicate it.

It really is just because they're nicer than most 'western' women.

Saint, may I place an advance order on that new burger that SMS raved about? The Eagles' this Friday will be the most interesting one yet and I want to munch on something while watching.

Thanks for corroborating what I've been saying (on this forum as well) for years. It's a market thing.

Because all 108 million of them are basically the same.

Sweeping indeed for a well-traveled soul

Hey there you are. American women have a reputation for being high maintenance (futures traders in skirts).

How many have you been married to? Come on, admit it, it's none right?

As I get older. I get more forth-right. That means I know more, and am less apologetic in expressing views. Sorry, that's how it is: I don't mean any offence (at all): Just my insight gets more laser-like and can occasionally cause offence amongst those without the right perspective.



Peace on mahn...
