Divorced, then jumping onto

I have to say, after my divorce, I was simply not interested in even dating a Western woman. After 18 years of marriage to a white American woman, I was pretty much done with Western women. It was time to try something new.

The temptation is to believe that somehow a woman who looks and sounds different is going to actually be different. The reality is, if a woman you marry turns out to be, well, a bitch, it won't matter so much how exotic she appears. And if you marry the girl next door, she could turn out to be an excellent life-long marriage partner.

Having said all that, there is no denying the cultural effect a country can have on a person. Culture is what gets imprinted upon a person by the collective, to make them behave in ways that might seem incomprehensible when observed in an individual's behavior.

Give yourself two years from the date your divorce was final before you tie the knot with anyone new. You need that time to decompress and to see any potential in any kind of clear light.
