OMG: I honestly can't stand it when a guy (more often than so, a non-Asian/Caucasian guy) comes up to me and tries to communicate in a language they think I speak.

1) Yes, I can speak English
2) The fact that your ego is so inflated to a point where you think speaking in someone's first language will attract someone offends me.
3) You're not charming anybody.
Why not try speaking English first and _asking_ if we speak any other languages before assuming?

  1. My Mandarin prof told us told to randomly go up to the opposite sex that looked chinese and say Hello in Mandarin the start of the term. Let's give them the matter of the doubt that they had misguided advice...:S

    1. Wow, you should maybe take English rather than Mandarin. I'm talking grade 8/9 English.

  2. This happens way too often, not necessarily for charming, but just in general. I just stare at them until they talk in English. The worst part is when they start speaking in Mandarin, like they haven't considered that I speak Cantonese, it's not that I don't understand, but I much prefer, like OP, that they speak in English first.

  8. Yeah this is pretty douchey. It's not easy to learn another language let alone try to converse with someone you are attracted to in said language.

  9. I hate it when non-caucasian/asian guys come up to me and try to speak to me in the language they think I speak.

    1) I speak English and if I do speak another language, it is NOT Russian.
    2) I am offended by your lack of knowledge about Caucasian ethnicities
    3)^what OP said about not being charming
    ^what OP said about speaking English first

  10. I've picked up exchange students totally hammered speaking what little french I know from highschool. It's not what you do, it's who's doing it. Say what you want but stringing something together is impressive, even if it does sound a little broken... I'd say even more so than someone fluent in the language, there's nothing impressive about speaking your native tongue...

    OP is a typical stuck up slut that has no idea what she wants

    1. You're a piece of trash. OP is a slut because she doesn't suck the dick of every gross nerd who speaks 3 words in the Asian language they *assume* she speaks?

      Sorry your broken french game doesn't actually work you dumb fuck

  11. Typical Asian slut assuming Caucasians fall for that shit. Well, go fuck yourself because when you meet someone you might like you would want them to take an interest in whatever culture it is you have a connection to. That goes for any ethnicity. I'm neither Asian nor Caucasion so just guess what it's like when someone tries that with me. Go ahead. Guess.

  12. The sad part is that Canadians are trying to talk to you in another language IN CANADA because most of you asians don't feel like speaking english IN CANADA and you still bitch and complain. Yeah, go back home to asia.
