So last night I was taking a smoke break in between looking at porn when I spotted the Google ad you see above. It features an Asian woman being a caressed by a white dude who I’ll only describe as “interesting”. His embrace sends off creepy vibes to me. I’m not sure why.
Now, in the over ten years of surfing the Internet, I think I’ve clicked on maybe five ads in total. The ad above though, was too tempting to resist. Once clicked, I was taken to a special, special place called chnlove.com. I know for a fact there are a ton of mail-order bride web sites out there but this was the first one that I’d perused in detail.
The most compelling thing I found first was the “success stories” page. It’s filled with testimonials from happy couples who were formed using the site. It’s here where the whole thing takes on the nature of a slo-mo car wreck. You kinda don’t want to look but you have to. The first thing you see is that many couples have decided to post pics of themselves. Now maybe I shouldn’t be surprised but the majority of the couples are older, white, and at times, weird looking dudes paired up with Chinese ladies about 10+ years their junior. Some of the couples are just uncomfortable to look at. It’s like if I started to date say… Danica McKellar. What an odd choice for me to pick. I actually thought I’d choose Megan… ah… Danica McKellar… she’s so smart… I wonder if we’d do integrals together… what?
So yeah, just read what some of these dudes have written:
“If you want to find love, Chinese woman first are beautiful and they want to please the man that love them. It’s very important that you be honest as they are and they will love you forever. I couldn’t have done this without them. Thank you again.”
That comes from a dude who looks like Wilfred Brimley. Now granted, I’m of an open mind, meaning that I am quite sure that at least a few of these relationships aren’t motivated by citizenship desires. In fact, a few of the pictures show couples where the male is very close in age to the lady and he’s not hideous looking either.
Go have a look for yourself, it’s quite an eye-opening experience.
