Guy dating chinese girl

Although Hollywood's portrayal of us American women is taken by Chinese to mean that we're all "open minded" (meaning you have a list of past relationships that numbers in the double digits or are open to one-night stands) the guys worth pursing a relationship with will respect your boundaries if you're clear and upfront with them.One of the first things I noticed about the younger guys in China are that they almost always carry their girlfriend's purse.

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.

Jocelyn said that the guys that she's dated haven't come out directly to express their intent.

They're slow and spend a lot of time texting and talking to show their interest in you.

So, if you're dating a Chinese guy, make sure to figure out what the both of you want out of the relationship so you can manage expectations.

I've heard stories from second-hand sources about Chinese women wanting to date to get better at English or get a green card.

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.

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.
