It’s true — the sight of a foreign woman and Chinese boyfriend or Chinese husband is much rarer than its counterpart, the foreign man and Chinese woman.
If you go to any major city in China, you will invariably run into the foreign man-Chinese woman pairings in any major tourist or shopping destination; not so with foreign women and Chinese men.
Not because he’s a Chinese man, or because our relationship is “unique” or different.
Maybe you were swept off your feet during a visit to the Alps, where you met a Swiss man.
According to Xiao Yu, some Chinese men could never believe that such a girl would become their one and only. A driver who took me to the Beijing Airport this summer admitted he once had a Russian girlfriend when he was a college student.
But he said he was never able to satisfy her (yes, in way), so they parted.
Funnily enough I lately read research that waiting four weeks to jump in the sack with someone greatly improves the chance of a lasting relationship.
