A date with an attractive Chinese woman…, aargh, help!
You may be well experienced in dating women from your own race and culture, but dating a Chinese woman, someone who may well, if things go right, become your new Chinese wife, is likely to a whole new situation, a whole new experience.
Chinese girlfriends sometimes seem to get a bad reputation as being “hard work” or difficult as dating partners.
In cities like Beijing and Shanghai, some young people follow Westernized dating customs.
If you ask a Chinese woman to dance, she’s likely to be insulted.
In the Chinese culture, many consider it rude just to look someone directly in the eye, cross your arms or legs, or have your hands in your pocket when you are speaking to them. If she smiles at you, it’s probably okay to ask for her cell number.
