When I was in my second year of university, a complete stranger approached a pal and me in the roads of Melbourne, asking to photograph us for his web site about interracial couples.
A taken that is little, we told him we weren't together but had friends which may fit the bill.
"Oh, sorry," I remember him saying. "I only take pictures of interracial partners with an Asian guy and a white woman."
He had beenn't Asian himself, and I wasn't certain if that made things more or less strange.
He went on to explain that many of his buddies were men that are asian thought Anglo-Australian ladies simply were not interested in dating them. His internet site was their method of showing it wasn't true.
Following a fittingly embarrassing goodbye, we never ever saw that man (or, concerningly, their internet site) once again, but the uncommon encounter remained with me.
