Chinese community dating
As for free English lessons, although my husband and I only communicate in English, I know of several couples who speak Chinese because their boyfriend or husband doesn't speak a word of it.From my experience at least, contrary to some stereotypes, getting free English lessons doesn’t seem to be a big priority for them when it comes to dating Westerners.
My husband's parents are always telling us what to do, not to do, how to do such-and-such properly and how to raise the kids.
When it comes to dating Western women, we've noticed that Chinese guys tend to be shy and insecure.
In a post on her blog, Speaking Of China, Jocelyn recalls the story of a Chinese taxi driver telling her that he couldn't satisfy the needs of foreign women in a previous relationship. Chinese people tend to think Americans are rich and can't provide for us on their smaller salary.
It's kind of strange to get used to seeing so many guys with designer handbags on their arms, but they appear to do it willingly.
When I asked my husband about it, he said he's never noticed.
"That's just how it is," is the response that most people give.
