I have had very serious relationships with several Asian men that eventually led to the marriage to my current Chinese husband. Blows that rumor that they don’t date Black women out of the water doesn’t it? for you ladies interested in dating Asian men or Chinese in particular; you need to know there is a big difference between ABC men ) ….. They are very strong on tradition of taking care of family and parents.
Now before I get started I want to let everyone know that I am Black American and I am currently living in China. I didn’t make up these names they are created by the Chinese folks themselves. They think like you, they dress like you, they have the same stereotypes as you. They usually prefer their women to not go out a lot to the bars, and to stay home and keep a good house for them while they bring home the money for the family. and if you don’t like to have a man pay for your dinner and buy you things….
They know what you know and they speak like you speak….. If you find a man who is currently living in China…he might be more shy that an FOB and even more traditional when it comes to wife and family.
Chinese men and I think Asian men in general tend to be very family oriented and usually date to marry. Maybe they havent caught on to the women’s equal rights thing… but they really are the head of the family and decision makers…
I never attributed tenets as simple as honoring and respecting elders, especially parents, to my ethnic upbringing.
The Parental Influence Like many Chinese parents, mine only expected the best – the best grades, the best schools, the best jobs, and the best husband who shared those same qualities.
I was told by a Japanese Scientist and good friend that you need at least three in a sample size to make an informed decision about something… FOB’s are very traditional in the fact that they date to marry, they are not aware of a lot of the stereotypes and they do not know American culture very well. and they tend to be pretty shy when it comes to women. They are open to some new things but prefer to stick with what they know.
at least, preferably more than that, but at least three can give you an idea. I have been considered quite an expert on the subject of dating Asian men and Chinese men, particularly. As for women, they are pretty open to different women as long as the woman likes them, but they are pretty shy so you may not know if they even are interested in you.
If you’re single, new to China and plan on being here for a while, the issue of dating a Chinese partner will inevitably arise.
Besides dealing with the whole “Yellow Fever” stereotype, there are certainly some things you should know before you start dating in China, so you and your Chinese partner don’t have too many surprises along the way.

Even such a trivial matter of giving a name card should, to be perfectly polite, be given and received in this manner.

The process of courtship in China seems to be much more important than the process of courtship in the United States.
