Chinese girls dating western guys online dating correspondence etiquette
First off I just want to be clear that I’m not writing about all guys and girls in Shanghai.
I know that every person is unique and relationships can vary.
On the other hand, I know there are plenty of young people in Shanghai who are less traditional and love to party and have fun and hook up casually.
Actually, there seems to be a very clear divide between “party girls” and “traditional girls”.
Or she might be so concerned with maintaining a traditional image that she exerts very little sexuality, and a Western guy who is used to more confident girls will be turned off if there isn’t at least some hint of sexuality (this doesn’t mean getting physical, it just means showing confidence in your physicality).
Traditional girls also tend to let their dates dominate the conversation – which can be a result of the language barrier (they’re usually dating in English) or she might be comfortable in a submissive role for tradition’s sake.
Those are pretty straightforward, but there’s another reason that a lot of people think but don’t say out loud because it’s a sensitive subject – the cultural differences.
If a guy is out looking for party girls, then he isn’t looking for a serious relationship (or he just wants to have some fun while still looking for a girlfriend).I’ll just briefly talk about some differences in dating and relationships.In the US, people tend to start dating at an earlier age than in China.And she is difficult to find, at least among the under 30 age group in Shanghai!
That previous point about the language barrier is important too.More traditional Chinese girls also might not snag a Western guy, for a number of reasons.
