I participated in a workshop about working hilidays in the UK with my dearest French girls-Aii yeasterday. There was a section called Q&A after the workshop and one of the audience asked a question, "Can you list some culture shocks between Taiwan and the UK?" the woman whom had studied in the UK for two years replied, "Sure, when a guy asked you out or wanna hang out with you, don't think too much. he's just wanna be friend with you and just friends." It dawned upon me that we are just friend and never think too much. haha
Are there some culture shocks between us? Yes, really are. Somehow i am thinking that knowing you is a lucky thing, for i would practice my English oral and speaking ability, got someone to share my feelings, even got a new one to hang out with. Pretty good, isn't it? :)
French girls have international views toward everything in lives, and we know that we must step out to experience the world. Therefore, i knew that there do exist different ways toward different people all over the world. As for me, dealing with American, never take their words so seriously. "Wanna have a movie next time? I'll call you back. I got to buy you a drink something!" Just listen and never look forward for it or you would be pretty disappointed. In my point of view, American to whom they are not familiar with will try their best to show their friendlyness and kindness. However, once you wanna move forwad to have a closer relationship, you will know that they are just trying to be polite something. It's hard to get into an American group something in the beginning. In contrast, dealing with Eupean, it would be pretty hard in the beginning. Once they open their mind to accept you, you would experience their kindness and how friendly they were. To say it honestly, i have never been to the USA but i had ever been to Europe for two times. I have to confess that European were really nice to foreigner, espeicially girls.
For us, you are kind of dangerous to me, for you have Asian outlook with foreign soul indeed. Somehow Iwill ease my mind and to think in the wrong way. haha, thanks you to my experience and age, i always pull it back on time. thank you for teaching my a new lesson of culture differences. :)
