15 Days of Online Dating, an Old Woman's Mystifying Experience. Seventy-four years old Maian has been bored with her life in general and she is lonely and depressed. She lived in Canada and then the US since she was 28; she is practically an American now. She does not watch Chinese TV and she is at odds with the other old Chinese women. The Caucasians and African Americans she meets usually assume that she speaks minimal English. They would only talk to her when it's necessary and with either patronizing or condescending manners. Last December, her elder daughter sent her money instead of a gift. Her younger daughter suggested that she use this extra money on an online dating site. She said, "Take it as a gamble. It will cost no more than a day at a casino. You may find an old man who likes to read and write, and who definitely will have plenty of time to read the stories you wrote. Who knows, maybe even a late-blooming romance." The site they agreed on was not a "free" one and not a local one. They thought that if someone had to pay to get on the site, they could not be too bad. Maian paid for a one-month subscription and she had a mystifying experience for 15 days of online dating. She writes this book which includes stories of her Chinese childhood and background.
