    I have been in China now for three months and I have found that my ideas of what's good-looking and who is attractive have completely changed.icon_eek.gif

    I came here knowing that there probably would not be an opportunity to connect with any gay people and it hasn't happened. But it hasn't stopped me from admiring the eye candy! I have really grown to find the guys here attractive.

    In the US, I never gave many Asians a second look mostly because of a difference in size (I usually prefer guys my size in height). Here, of course, there are guys of all sizes and many of them are hot. I have heard about the differences in perceived attractiveness between the west and the east. For example, some K pop (Korean pop) stars look almost feminine, but are considered really attractive. I understand it now. I find that here too with how people dress and put time into how they look. It really pays off. icon_biggrin.gif

    Has anyone else experienced this? Not so much between two European countries or between Americans and Canadians; but really having a new focus on an ethnicity from traveling and being immersed in the culture.

    Sorry, didn't see it.

    I hate to put it that way, but yeah! Never gave them much thought (maybe because there aren't many where I'm from). But I would be totally open if I were to meet a guy back home.

    Did they give you any thought while in China?
    Any guys there I mean.


    A few that I saw on Jack'd. But the language barrier was too much. And with the program I'm in, I don't think I could go out discreetly (being a teacher at the local university).
