Schedule Travel To Asia to See Your Girlfriend or Fiancée.

Travel to Asia

Cherry Blossoms Friends,

 

With oil prices at a 10 year low, airline ticket prices are slowly coming down. This is great news for you if you’re looking to save money on a flight to see your lady!

 

Of course, you’re going to want to plan ahead. A recent study concluded that the best time to book your international flight to Asia (and save the most money) is 160 days in advance.

 

Additionally, it’s best to purchase tickets well in advance if traveling internationally. If you’re planning on travelling to the United States, it’s recommended you buy 54 days in advance. If you’re looking at traveling to Europe, it’s best to purchase tickets 120 days in advance.

 

Cherry Blossoms members, if you’re looking at traveling to see your girlfriend or fiancee AND you want to get the cheapest tickets, right now is the right time to book your tickets.

 

Aloha,

 

Bob

The Importance of “We”

The Importance of “We”

It’s no surprise that online relationships can be challenging, especially when trying to meet Filipino or Chinese women online. Whether you are looking for a pen pal; a long term relationship, of your future bride; building a future life with an Asian woman will take work and many are up for the task. Looking for love outside of your own culture can be exciting and rewarding; as interracial couples (Caucasian or European men and Asian women) tend to report that just being aware of their cultural differences increases curiosity and discussing their differences directly may even enhance intimacy.

A recent research study (Seshadri & Knudson‐Martin, 2013) examined inter-cultural (as well as interracial) relationships in the United States. Cultural differences, especially around tradition (how we “should be”/“should behave”/”social expectations”) in a long term relationships or marriages become opportunities to co-create new traditions, increase personal meaning, and intimate strength in relationships. After conducting multiple interviews, researchers identified 4 relationship structures involving mixed culture relationships (see below).

One wife said ‘‘I thought I was pretty westernized until I married my husband. Then I realized that I was actually pretty Asian in a lot of ways. I think it’s relative to who I’m with…’’

 4 Relationship Structures with cross-cultural relationships (marriages)

Couples can use 4 major strategies to manage their cultural differences on a day-by-day basis:

  • Creating a We. Building a life after meeting online, dating and agreeing to marriage involves co-authoring a new chapter in a life story, your story. The key pieces involved in creating a ‘‘we’’ include: friendship, common ground, similar goals, working together over time, and commitment.
  • Framing Differences. How couples look at cultural differences makes all the difference. Key pieces in framing differences include sharing differences as attractive, being flexible and respectful about your spouse’s culture, and understand that cultural differences are something to learn about and celebrate.
  • Paying Attention to Feelings. We all need somebody to lean on. Strong emotions may come up from difficult culture-related situations, for example disapproval from a family member.  Communicating with your spouse about your feelings and insecurities, and clearly listening to theirs will help strengthen the emotional connection. Find ways to make adjustments around culture-related differences and find support with each other.
  • Connecting with family and community members.  “Hi Mum and Dad…Meet my special someone.” No couple is an island, it is important to set boundaries and draw respectful lines with family and community members who may have strong feelings about your friendships and relationships.  Sometimes it is best not to react to negative opinions; stay calm, collected, and unwilling to get into an argument over your relationship with your Chinese or Filipina girlfriend (or wife). Some couples use humor (appropriately) to deal with cultural differences. It may just take some time to let family and community members come around. Give them space, and in this case not physical space – emotional space. Emotional space gives the person time to come around on their own terms.  Once family members start to relate and connect to their new in-law as individuals; cultural issues fade away.

Putting it all together – finding the right woman from a different culture (Chinese, Filipina, or somewhere else in the world) online for chatting, an email pen pal or a future bride; it is important to communicate about culture and understand that integrating cultural traditions, values, and ideas into a solid state of “WE” will support a long and satisfying connection.

International Online Dating

International Online Dating

Why would you start a relationship with someone that is thousands of miles away?

A Beautiful Asian WomanFirst and foremost, meeting someone from another country and culture is exciting. Finding out how  much you have in common can be surprising. Realizing that you have some differences can be intriguing and alluring. You may also find that many of your conventional dating techniques are not useful. You are not taking her to dinner and a movie. You are sitting in your home or office, talking to her online and possibly seeing her with a webcam.

Getting to know someone online can actually be easier. You are focused on your conversations, her replies, her smile, her laugh. You are not trying to talk to her in a bar scene, or even over dinner. You can have her undivided attention and vice versa. Surprisingly, you actually can get to know someone better online than you do in person. There are not as many distractions.

Being able to hold her hand or kiss her good night is important. Yet, seeing her in her own environment on good days and bad is also extremely important. With a webcam, you are able to see her whenever you want. You can meet her family, watch her laugh and get to know her smile and her sense of humor. In other words, get to know her on a more intimate level.

Once you have spent some real time talking with each other, getting to know one another, you begin to feel comfortable and excited. Comfortable because you know this woman; excited because she is exactly what you have been looking for!

Now the real adventure begins! You begin planning your trip to visit her in person. Maybe you are a world traveler and you have been out of the country many times; maybe you have never left the United States. Either way, you are going to meet a woman that you have spent many hours getting to know, falling in love with and realizing you do not want to live without!

Before you ever leave home, you are already ahead of the game. Why? Because you know what you want. You have focused on this woman and her family, you have spent the time it takes to get to know her and now you are travelling to her country to see where she lives, how she lives and whether there is the physical attraction that you believe there is. Your relationship is already on a more solid foundation than many of your previous “in-person” relationships.

Lastly, when it is all said and done, your international online relationship is probably less expensive too. Until you go to meet her, your expenses have been next-to-nothing. You are not wining and dining her. You may have purchased a webcam for her and a membership with Cherry Blossoms, Inc., but other than that, you have not spent any money. So, for the price of a round trip ticket and hotel room, you are now on your way to meet the woman of your dreams!
