The guy is pretty silly, but he is not mean spirited. I liked how she handled the situation with humor. I think he should have actually asked her to get some of those English “Fish and Chips” … as they are pretty good. Maybe they could have a good conversation.
They should set the misunderstanding aside and just be nice to each other. She is a very pretty lady! He is a little dorky, but I think that she would see that he is a kind person – if she can give him a chance. She will straighten him out and he will come around and realize what he said.
Consider the big picture. Perhaps after a few dates they could be making love. Perhaps after a couple of years that could have a nice family.
He will probably realize that he said some dopey things to her when they first met, but his heart was probably in the right place. He wanted to know her.
Dig this: He might make a toast on their wedding day: “When I first met her I thought she was the most beautiful, vibrant woman I have ever met … I just HAD to talk to her. She kids me about it now, but the only thing I could think to say back then was to ask her about her Asian ancestory.”
Look, the world is too full of meaningless conflict. Try to set misunderstandings aside.
Just love each other kids …
