This is almost always a mistake: first, you should bear in mind that she has most likely started an affair with you because she wants excitement and danger, and not to start another long-term relationship. So, by all means enjoy yourself, but make sure you don't become too attached - above all, it's bad affair dating etiquette!Also, remember that if you are a cheater, and you are dating a fellow cheater, this may not be the perfect formula for a committed, loving relationship.You can be certain that on The Affair you will find women looking for men - why else would they be here?As many women approach forty, they start to look back on their lives and consider whether they've had as much fun as they'd like to have.Elsewhere, in an open letter to the culture minister earlier this year, actors from The British East Asian Artists (BEA) criticised the BBC and other outlets for their cultural stereotyping of East Asians on TV and stage – describing the female parts as “passive and submissive”.Elizabeth Chan, a British Chinese actress, says acting has offered an insight into how society sees Chinese women, calling parts on offer to her “massively stereotypical”.Having said that, I'm surprised at what British men, both young and old, generally get away with when talking about East Asian women (Chinese, Japanese, Korean etc.) as well as South East Asian women (Vietnam, Thailand etc.) I've heard my Caucasian friends recommend to their male, single mates that they should date “nice Chinese girls”, with the added bonus that Chinese women are far more sexually open-minded than Caucasian girls.
In fact, the most recent figures from 2.4 million users of Facebook dating apps showed a clear skew in preference for women of East Asian descent by men of all racial groups, except, ironically, Asian men.The tale of the tragic love story between a young Vietnamese woman and an American soldier paints a heartbroken and helpless image of Miss Saigon that remains one of the most poignant and visible depictions of Far Eastern women in popular culture.Yet this portrayal epitomises what many see as a narrow perception of East Asian (defined as Chinese, Japanese, Korean etc) women.But Debbie also believes that Asian American women are paying a price for “positive” stereotyping.“We are largely invisible when it comes to politics and popular culture, yet there's a very palpable urban myth that Asian women make better lovers than other women”, she says.I’ve been left puzzled by the insensitivity, and the lack of awareness that such comments may cause offence.
