    You'll never know now if he might have been a keeper. Using a business card is not unusual. That's how you meet people.

    Something to think about: If a young women is conservative enough to believe in traditional gender roles, imagine what her parents are like!! Now, do you think those parents are eager to see their daughter marry someone from a different culture, and possibly have her move to another country and have non-Asian grandchildren?

    And if the parents don't approve (not necessarily a given), how likely is it that your traditional bride-to-be is going to go against her family's wishes? And if she's free-thinking enough to go against her parents wishes, maybe she's open-minded enough to reconsider the whole submissive wife thing once she's had a few years of serving you dinner and washing your undies

    However, I do acknowledge that there are foreign women who are genuinely attracted to foreign men and we do have a reputation for being romantic.
    True. However, I'd argue that it's all ultimately a matter of degree. "Traditional gender roles" (of the sane, rather than "Tigger," variety ) aren't all that terribly uncommon even in the United States.

    You also wouldn't necessarily be talking about a woman who was "traditional" by her own culture's standards, but those of American culture.

    It is possible for a woman to be a bit more "domestically oriented" without necessarily being a powerless maid, after all. It all comes down to the individual.

    Seriously though, I always thought the Italians were the romantics. Let's face it, our language isn't very sexy.

    Like I said earlier, it might've even been a deliberate ploy on his part.

    He might've thought he was showing off how successful he was while presenting himself as "mysterious" and assertive at the same time.

    It just happened to completely and totally backfire on him.

    Yes, but usually a person would introduce himself at least and try to strike up a conversation instead of just dropping a business card at your table and walking away.

    Since you won't talk of the thread, let me speak to your incessant slander of BHO, Hagel, Kerry, Hillary, etc.

    As soon as BHO accepted the GOP position on Defense cuts, the GOP went off the reservation as usual and started lying and defaming .

    That is true. But I get the feeling from the posts in this thread (and in other forums I've seen), and I could be wrong, that these men are looking for women who are pretty submissive all around and not merely "domestically oriented".

    Well, all the romance languages are sexy, in my opinion.
