California with Monkro (photos)

Postby Falcon » Wed Jul 17, 2013 6:40 am

Monkro and I just met up in a California suburb that is predominantly upper-middle class Asian. The two of us also met up with with a Korean-American friend of mine from high school who is also very frustrated with the dating scene in the US (he might be joining the forum soon).

We walked around the local community college, and had some pearl milk tea. Monkro told me about his adventures in several European countries, while I shared mine in Asia and Latin America.

Here are some pics I took.


Our worst nightmare: Asian-American gals with their stereotypical valley girl twang, excessive mascara, and unapproachable vibes. I heard one of them say, "my boyfriend..." RUN! :twisted:

Cool frat-boy, fundamentalist Christian, conformist AZN guys with their lady at the boba tea place.

The local college campus felt very isolated and cliquish. If you still believe college in the US is a great place for dating, then think again.

Girls studying by themselves, at different tables

People interacting in closed-off groups, just like in high school

Isolation

Suburban California super clean and sunny. Great food, libraries, and Internet. But all this comes at a big cost!

Great photos Falcon! California seems just like NYC in its unfriendliness, unapproachability, and snobbishness of the people...

Thanks! Except that California's got maybe a bit more spacious and sunnier. 8)

The reverse culture shock wasn't pleasant at all, after I had just come back from this: Falcon with the Mexican mamasitas


Contrast the Mexicanas:

With the snobby girls that I grew up with:

Which brings this old thread of mine to mind: My Mexican girlfriend vs. American college girls

Tell Monkro to get his ass back to Taiwan pronto. He's got a lot of pearls here desperately awaiting his return!
