you and I have similar educational backgrounds (apparently), so many of the facets ...
Do we? :)
Maybe you're right.. i don't think I am asking for confirmation about a pre-conceived answer. but it sure as hell helps to just talk about it, vaguely as it is, to an rather anonymous group.. I _do_ want to receive an answer to the question to just how deep the respect for the elder goes.
I hinted at her status as a foreign national: why don't you let us know how she came to that country, and what legal status does she have?
Not telling us these facts deprives us of a fuller view.
She got here by invitation of a foundation to spend a year here and work freely in her profession. I met her about 2 weeks after she arrived. And we've been together since. before that year was over, we applied a work visa for her which was granted for her in her profession for 3 years.
These elements add a new light on her, and one wonders what a woman might have to sell to an elderly man that the elderly man cannot purchase in a store. Again, the question here is: does she do the selling for a living? Why does she have to sell her "products" to a man in an old-age retirement home rather than, say, a store? How did the two strike up their relationship? Where do you fit in?
See, I want to protect her identity - her reputation. So lets say that she's.. producing unique handcrafted items. those items are also available here and could be in other specialized shops - we have yet to make good contact. It is a totally honorable profression - and she can make a good living by it. where the old guy is having her work now (to make another unique handcrafted item, incorporating local goods), is by far no retirement-home.
relationship.. for her - work.. for him - from all we know, "love".. (though he doesn't care whether she wants his attention)
Well, well... GIrlfriends are always "the most honest" people in the minds of their admirers. How long have you known her?
I grant you that.. but she really is the most honest person. And she does tell me everything. really no doubt about that.
She would be better off to be in China - economically, socially (family) and of course food-wise. But she's chosen to stay here, with me. She(!) bought a house here, which I'm repairing and make things nice for when she gets back from that job.. I pay the upkeep.. She wants to build her career here, similar to her career in China. And that's where the old ass comes into play - with his contacts.
I am convinced her submissiveness has absolutely nothing to do with "respect for older generations".
ok. Thank you for your opinion, based on given information.
