The title is misleading, the story is hardly about the age gap. And I'm also shocked that no one pointed this out. You say women in your countries wouldn't want a 'project' and they shouldn't have to take on a challenge as great as you were (your words) and you empathised with them. So what made you think women from another country, and Asia in this case, would be any different? This article seems to illustrate reality better it seems https://medium.com/the-establishment/the-mail-order-bride-industry-is-anything-but-funny-d2711beb4403 — I appreciate your honesty but I'd expect you to address other real issues like power imbalance / abuse / racism beyond your own situation than this trivial age gap issue.
