When Younger Chinese Women and Older Foreign Men Come Together

Chinese women with foreign men who are a decade or so older than them are a very common pairing.  In the west, such relationships are often viewed with suspicion, especially when the woman is young enough to be the man’s daughter, or granddaughter.  Is the woman only after the man’s money?  Does the man only want a trophy wife?  In china, the circumstances are a different kind of black and white; these cross-cultural couples are simply motivated by the same dating timetable. Granted that even in China, there are gold-diggers and visa hounds, and there are foreign men who are only motivated by their Asian fetish.  For the most part, however, many Chinese women and foreign men who seek...

Women of China: Exploring Personal Freedoms

“A promising career is no better than a good husband.”  A survey conducted by the All-China Women’s Federation (ACWF) showed that one-third of both male and female respondents agreed with this saying, with the women giving a more affirmative response than the men.

Online Dating and Communication

Failure to communicate or inability to communicate effectively; this is often the reason why relationships fail, some even before they start.  With online dating, effective communication is even more crucial because the only connection two people will have and on which they can build a relationship that they can also pursue in the real world is their online communication.
