I Only Date Chinese*

February 14, 2007

*DISCLAIMER: Insert your ethnic group of choice. Third Thursdays does not recommend any particular dating preference or strategy. We do recommend coming to our lively discussion on February 15th.

If you say you only date Chinese, you might be going for the largest pool, trying to appease your parents, or just a bit narrow-minded.

This month, Third Thursdays looks at what’s often considered the next most acceptable option - inter-ethnic Asian relationships. We’ll talk about why, what, and leave out most of the how. Join us for some perspective.

Thursday, February 15, 2007, 7:00-9:15pm. Japanese Cultural & Community Center, 1840 Sutter Street, San Francisco. $5-20. RSVP here.

Make it a night - head over afterwards with your honey-bunny or your beautiful solo selves to the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival Launch Party at 111 Minna, 8 p.m. to midnight!

Better than white women saying that only date other whites. At least Chinese is a culture whereas white is not.
