I asked my all-girl lower level class to write an essay about their "Dream Boy." All the girls described what their dream boy looked and acted like. Every girl had a different essay except one thing in common -- all girls said their "dream boy" was a businessman.
This was just so -- what's the word -- Vietnamese. I'm sure many American girls hope that they marry a successful businessman but when it comes to a "dream boy" don't most girl want like an artist or a musician or, well, something exciting? I have nothing against businessmen (okay, that's not totally true -- google global recession) but they just seem so unimaginative.
And yes, I'm fully aware that recently I opened my own business which makes me very likeable to Vietnamese women yet very boring to myself.
