    hi, i am a chinese and came to edmonton, canada last september for graduate study(master). i love it here cause it is so open to homosexual and people are so nice hereicon_smile.gif. and of course, so many cute guys, lol. i am just curious that what canadians think about having a chinese as bf. i am 6' and 160pounds. i don't know exactly how much the cultural difference thing would affect the relationship if i ever had one. i am a bottom but for relationship not hoop-up. so i am just curious what my chances are.

    thank you guys for your thoughts.icon_biggrin.gif

    Lol, it's just fine. We know some guys with Chinese bfs, and some with black bfs and some with white bfs and some with Pakistani or Iranian bfs and I could talk and talk about it. icon_wink.gif

    there shouldn't be any worries about race, but that's up to the individual person. good to know you like the place ;)

    By Canadians, are you referring specifically to caucasians? icon_confused.gif Otherwise, Canadians is such a broad term. In Vancouver, there are people of many ethnicities and cultures, all identifying themselves as Canadians. And like the other replies already stated, it really depends on the individual.

    I don't live in Canada, but I'm Caucasian and have had a few Chinese boyfriends.

    First, Asians are often considered as one race, same for Latinos...although everybody knows huge differences exist depending upon the country and culture you were raised in. But don't be insulted if somebody can't tell if you're Chinese or Japanese. Chances are you can't tell who is English or Irish.

    If it were me, the biggest obstacle is the possibility that you will leave Canada after graduation and break my heart...lol.

    But there are many positives too. Yes, your culture is different, but that is what makes you more interesting. Opposites tend to attract. You are getting a Masters, and intelligence and ambition are good. Also, you don't have family here...which is often seen as a positive. But if you're not out to your family, this may create problems down the relationship road.

    If anything, Canadians in general (with all sorts of backgrounds) are very accepting of other cultures and ethnic backgrounds compared to many other parts of the world. In another words, you've got nothing to worry about. Like what previous posts have already mentioned, it's up to the individual's preference, character and attitude.

    Do not let your obvious visible differences hinder your potential fulfilling relationship.

    My only issue would be if his family is in the picture and how traditional they are. I have a few Asian friends (Chinese, Filipino) and the family control and interference would make me insane. But generally no issue based on his ethnicity.

    There are many very sexy Chinese men. Some of my best friends are second generation, and I enjoy their parents and their culture as well. It's too bad I don't meet more of them in the American Southwest.

    I don't really understand your question.

    I think what you're asking about is what do caucasian Canadians think of having a Chinese boyfriend, but if I've got it wrong, please correct me.

    If that was what you were wanting to know, what I think is there's nothing wrong with a non-Chinese Canadian having a Chinese boyfriend...some guys are more attracted to Chinese guys than other guys.

    In a city like Toronto, it's not at all uncommon to find Chinese guys with caucasian boyfriends, and of course Chinese guys with Chinese boyfriends...though I'd have to admit, it is far less common to find Chinese guys in relationships with non-white/Chinese guys.

    What I'd say is, if you're interested in dating a Canadian guy, or interested in fooling around with a Canadian guy, let him know...and if he's interested, he'll let you know.

    But anytime you get into dating or looking for relationships, understand that a certain amount of rejection goes with the territory...so don't take it hard if you find that some guys say they're not into you, or not into dating Chinese guys. All it means is there's someone better out there for you!

    While, to be honest, I am more attracted to Caucasians and Asians. However, I think i am ok with all the races.
