I’m going to have to write more of these private entries now that I’ve found out people round here are reading this lj secretly. There’s a streak of malicious gossip around the foreign community in Zhuhai which has shocked me a couple of times, and I’d like to stay out of it as much as possible.
So, I seem to have got involved with a woman called Mandy. She’s only moderately attractive and doesn’t speak English that well but I like her enough to go out with her when she calls me, go to stay in a hotel with her when she asks me to, all that. But I don’t want to enter into a serious relationship with her and don’t know how to tell her to lay off a bit as communication is a bit basic as it is. I just got a text message from her saying ‘I miss you’. I know I’m a complete coward, it’s just I’m not used to the attention I get from girls here. I’m afraid it’ll be a bit of a culture shock going back to the uk where being shy and ginger are as bad as having six-inch warts on your eyes.
