As a female Asian, I have been approached by different types of guys either in real life or on social networking services. There were also guys not just on Tinder who seemed to have good intentions or I thought so but for different reasons things got weird and cringe-worthy pretty fast. One time this Australian guy messaged me on Instagram and told me he found me attractive and interesting. Fortunately for those who are interested in this topic, as an Asian woman living in the UK, I could offer some help on how to approach Asian Asian chick wanted without coming across as a weird, creepy dude and score a date with her. Do tell us genuinely about yourself and the people who matter to you regardless of their race, so we could get a better idea of who you are. We are not impressed and we would feel even more alienated because you keep making a big deal out of it.
This week, we are highlighting Felicia Woo and her life as an Asian American.
I had more cultures and ways of thinking to draw upon to understand and connect with others. Her parents moved to the United States for a work opportunity when she was one year old with the intention of moving back. Plans changed, and they have lived in the U.
In her early childhood, Woo stood out as one of the few Asian American students in school.
We were happy to be selected, but now looking back, I see it differently. From a young age, Woo remembers her family having to work hard to both fit in and maintain their culture. At home, we maintained traditions and always spoke Mandarin Chinese.
My grandparents lived with us and my mom did not want our home to feel foreign to them. Moving around throughout her life, Woo felt she had to assimilate every time she moved, but found she fit in more in diverse communities. We have to be more careful of how we interact with others to avoid confrontation that could be threatening.
Woo strongly believes we need to be willing to engage in tough conversations on real issues to combat stereotypes and make America better. We are all political because we are part of communities, part of society and part of the solution. That changes the nature of the conversation, reminds us of our shared humanity, and encourages kindness and connection through true honesty.
