occasionally publish interesting stories of romance and
relationships. This time we have picked a story of an
intense relationship of an American man and a woman from
Singapore. Read the story in Mark's original words.
||A few months ago I noticed a
beautiful Asian girl in my school. I am a white guy living in Portland, Oregon, but I have known many Asian people and have studied Chinese for a few years. Anyway, I learned from a
classmate that she was from Singapore. She
seemed very shy and it seemed like she could not speak English well. I asked my friend about
her and he told me she was an exchange
student. Since it was nearly the end of the year I decided not to attempt to ask her out or even talk to her. I would see her everyday in school though, and I could not help looking at her she was so beautiful. As the weeks went by we made more and more eye contact, but being kind of awkward with girls I have never met and not being very knowledgeable on
female flirting tactics I thought
that she was just making eye contact with me because I couldn’t stop staring at her. One day she actually came up to me though and after apologizing a lot for bothering me she asked if I would please accept a piece of paper with her name and number on it and in return give her mine. I was very surprised to say the least.
American girls never would
approach me in that way. Specially they would not apologize for wanting to give me their number; I’m usually the one who has to beg for the girl’s number. We exchanged numbers, and after the reality set in that the girl I have been dreaming about for months had just made a move towards me I became very excited and called her as soon as I got home.
I learned that she was an exchange student and was not allowed to have a boyfriend but was very interested in me and did not care about the rule since it was the end of the year. After dating a while I took her to a dance club for her 18th birthday. We connected so well because she could communicate easily with me using a mix of English and Chinese. We simply loved being with one another. At first I didn’t want to get serious because I knew she would leave me and return to Singapore soon, but she was so amazing that I had to try to be with her so I asked her if she wanted to get serious and try for a long term and soon to be
long distance relationship. She was overjoyed that I asked her and we kissed and hugged for a couple of hours. We were together a few months and in that time together we had a strong and
relationship. She has been the most amazing lover I have ever had and could not imagine intimacy being better with anyone else.
We decided to try to stay together and she is very devoted to me. We use electronic means to stay in touch and visit each other every few months. I love her more than anything else and want to make her happy. She is not used to guys treating her the way I treat her. She says that her ex-boyfriends in Singapore would never say, “I love you” or be so gentle in bed. She said that that is why she is so shy. We are not getting married next year. My message to other men and women out there who are in relationships like this is that they should
stay positive because such relationships do work.
