On dating chinese
But, honestly, it took me a while to manage to get a Chinese girl to go out with me as I had no idea about the particularities and the unwritten rules that I was expected to be aware.
Of course, in a country with 1 billion inhabitants, around 49 % female, you are bound to find any kind of girl. They take their time to trust you, to become more confident, and start talking about their feelings and dreams.
They won’t understand the context and, possibly, the vocabulary required to follow it correctly.
Plus, some things that you might find amusing can be considered as offensive by them. China has opened itself to the world since a while ago, and many things have been changing.
In other words, they hardly look for a boyfriend, but for a potential husband.
But it is still true that the traditional expectation of a woman being feminine is the norm here.
They will do their best to reinforce their role, and you can expect a behavior that you might not be used of seeing anymore as the one that you see below.
So use my tips wisely, just as a background information so you don’t get too surprised when you see these things happening.
A decade ago, my plans for coming to China included teaching for a year, two...maybe even three, before returning to the US to start my teaching career.
