Celina,

One thing no one has dealt with is the fact that you are shy and timid and I imagine this i ...

You seem to be in the spirit of the thing....one might even argue that your zeal is unseemly
No, I live above Sunset Plaza, it's a little house I rent and it's a little rundown but has a beautiful view, what about you?

Not at all, my zeal is far from unseemly, I've seen too many people seriously damaged by others via the net and in real life to wish such a fate on anyone.  Many young Chinese women (and guys) are far more innocent than their western counterparts and far more easily led in to dark and bad places as it were.

  1. Many young Chinese women (and guys) are far more innocent than their western counterparts and far more easily led in to dark and bad places as it were.

I often reflect on that very point. But is it possible to save people from themselves?

This innocence, is it really innocence? I like to ask guys divorced from Japanese women if they'd marry another Japanese. I often get NO. Wiser and error of their ways atoned for.

Damaged by the net? And in real life? Now you have my interest pricked. I like tales from the other side ......cautionary at best

You can't save people from themselves in most cases.  However teaching people to open their eyes and examine their situation dispassionately is a highly effective method of dodging the proverbial bullet.   Young Chinese girls in particular are vulnerable to the lures of us laowai who don't have good intentions, it's the psychological version of the grass is always greener in the next valley.  You can add to this the slick deliveries of many who prey on the young, the suspension of reality that they can create and you can get an idea of the rest Bandito.

As for some of the worst things I've seen (first hand), a woman on IRC back in the mid 90s, she convinced several dozen guys she was in love with them, she was the cause of at least 5 divorces that I am aware of and destroyed the lives of quite a few people.  I was one of the people she tried to lure in to her snare, however I didn't buy her story.   Then there was another girl I knew who was stalked and attacked by a guy she met online, the sad part about that was that the girl was dying of bone cancer at the time.  Want me to continue?
