    #3 and #6 SO true!

    But you guys didn’t mention the smooth skin! That is the most important thing in my book 😉

      I cannot decide if I should laugh or groan over this.

      But it is sort of true. The awesome Asian skin maybe deserves its own article?

    True about the marriage aspect. I remember that the topic has been brought up even on first dates. From what I can see here the life of the Chinese middle class is on a strict and fast paced schedule. Apartment, date, wedding and child all happen in rapid succession, and around age 26 women worry about being old.

    A couple of years ago I was not even aware that I was ‘dating’ a Chinese guy.
    We had met by chance in an English corner, and I would be friendly and chat pleasantly to those who I met.
    Suddenly this guy wants me to meet his family.
    Then after me looking blankly (from shock), he said he wanted to marry me.
    I don’t know how he thought I was interested.
    I politely declined.
    A couple of weeks later he brought his best friend to tell me why he was such a good match.
    I avoided that English corner afterwards, which annoyed me because I liked going there.

    I stay in china for 3 years, but communication is still a big problem. My Chinese friends tell me to attend some online mandarin course,For example: Hnabrige Mandarin school, chinesehour, speakmandarin etc…Because I need systematicness chinese mandarin study. So anyone have good recommendation?
