Xian girls & books [Copy link] 中文

Rank: 1

Post time 2007-5-16 12:07:45 |Display all floors
I went out on two separate dates with girls
from Xian,  China over a period of  2  or 5 years.
The girls carried books  (in English)  to
read with them!!!!   I've got one of the larger
private libraries in my city, but I do not carry
books out on a date. Is this a Xian custom?
I can not figure this custom out.
Please reply in English or pinyin as my Chinese
characters is not good.

maybe they want you to correct their homework??
carrying a book (especially book in english) and walking arouond,
maybe they use book as an ornament.

Of course there is not the custom in anywhere of China for carrying English books on a date.. I think maybe they just wanna show you something or they wanna get some advice from you on their English learning...

I am from Xi'an, and don't think girls like to carry a book in particular when going to a date.

maybe they think you are so boring that they have to read the book instead, haha

it's odd but anyway--let's look at

bright and romantic side:
they want to share same interest with you...like "I love Edgar Allan Poe how about you?" and you could have a topic and walk into a quiet place somewhere in the woods reading poems and something more....=.=

bright and realistic side:
they carry their textbooks and want advice on english from you...this is not bad anyways

dark side:
carry a book in case you're boring to deal with, and with english books to imply that---hey I knew english well but I don't want communicate with you at all
