There is a story that I have heard a couple of times since I´m in Beijing. The story in essence is something like:
Chinese girl is dumped by her chinese boyfriend after a ´´happy´´ long term relation (first love and all that pinky things). After this, chinese girl falls in the hands of a womanizer+jerk laowai (in my opinion), After him, she begins to look for ´´clons´´ of him (sometimes even these ´´clons´´ need to have the same nationality with the original....). And all this maybe in a try of .... well, I really don´t know, because to me all this seems to open old wounds, engaged in a kind of masochist ritual.
So, Can anyone explain me how this works? What is the theory behind? How can you get over a break up, get over an ex, looking for clons of that person??
After all, empathy depends of understanding...
