ok...... so my life is sorta messed up. I want to ask out some girls but my parents; i'm not so sure they would understand. Because in these days, people that are dating usually only go out for a short period of time before they break up, but in china where my parents grew up, if a guy showed any interest in a girl at all it's like they were gonna get married, so I'll feel like i'm gonna let my mom down just because a girl broke up with me. And she's acting like a little kid, once when she was picking me up from school, i was talking to a girl and my mom was like "u have a girlfriend u have a girlfriend" along with my 7 year old brother. And they haven't talked to me about puberty /sex yet so i dunno what their views on that are. My dad is just really shy about the whole sex thing and doesn't mention to it to me. and one more thing, how would i add a pic of myself onto here?
Well im assuming you are the oldest child in ur family? dont worry about it, i was too and i heard all the same stuff. Dont be worried about letting your parents down. If they are any normal person they will understand that not every relationship will work. It will take some time for your parents to get used to you dating, no reason to get discouraged
Often people who move from one country but want to keep the culture alive, end up enforcing a culture that no longer exists where they came from, and perhaps was never as strict as their version. But while you should try to see their point of view, you can't let their views run your whole life. It's not letting your mother down if she needs to find out that things are different from the way she thinks they should be.To add a pic of yourself, you first need to host it on a server. Imageshack.us is a good free place - go there and follow the instructions. You will end up with a URL you can then paste into the Image or URL code in a post. If the image is big in size on the screen or in filesize, please use the URL code and post it as a link rather than an image.If you want to use your pic as an avatar, you should first reduce it down to 90 x 90 pixels with picture-editing software. Save it that way as a new jpg, host the new small pic on imageshack, and at the bottom of your "My Home" page, click "Edit" next to "Personal information, email, password, etc." That brings up a page; the place to insert the URL to the pic is near the bottom.
