She misleads people by titling it “On Dating Chinese Men” — when it really ought to be called “My Bad First Date With a Chinese Man.” But here’s another thing that really troubles me.
When you do a Google Search for “dating Chinese men” (with the quotation marks), her post comes up as the number one result.
People searching for information on this topic will probably click on it first — after all, the title is exactly what they were looking for and it’s on the top, even though the actual content doesn’t really deliver on its promise.
The reality is, there are all kinds of Chinese men out there, and the potential for all kinds of dating experiences with them — both positive and negative.
She titled the post “On Dating Chinese Men.” A title like that suggests that the author is bringing a great deal of experience to her topic — that perhaps she has dated a number of Chinese men, or at least dated one long enough to get a better sense of the dating culture, and she wants to tell others about that overall experience. Now, she does preface this date as her “first Chinese date,” suggesting she probably did have more than one experience.
