Let me also say that in my experience, Chinese men are absolute gentlemen and will go out of their way to make you feel comfortable.

A lot of the women are beautiful, but a substantial portion are pushy, demanding and in general make unpleasant company.

Of course, this can be considered acting for TV, but that type of behavior does bleed over into the general culture.

My advice: don’t let anything hold you back from trying something new.

You’ve moved to China after all, and should get a taste of all aspects of the culture.

But, like travelling, it can be an enriching experience.

In my coaching, I approach these and many other existential life issues related to moving, living and working abroad.

One of my trainees, a manager with a very senior position in the company, asked me flat out: Why don’t Western women date Chinese men?

I found myself having to pause for a moment to find a politically correct response.

These are of course not China specific, but I can tell you from personal experience that these differences apply to any inter-cultural relationship.
