    Concerning the love phrases, someone asked on r/ChineseLanguage section on reddit the other day for Chinese love idioms. Go have a look! I bet you’d find some good ones there. My favourite is 一见钟情 (love at first sight).

    Interesting invite, Jocelyn. Because CMWW relationships are still few and far between unlike WMCW couplings, it would be interesting indeed to read of their experiences and how they cope with their lives as a tiny minority.

    Sounds wonderful Jocelyn. You are so very talented with your blog, and so passionate about this topic, any changes you make are going to be engaging and fascinating. I LOVE this blog like no other and I equally share your passion.. 🙂 I can’t believe how educational it has been, how much I have learned, and how encouraging and insightful you and your readers are. I always eagerly await your Friday “question” and the reponses from you and your readers, so I am very relieved that you are not canning it! 🙂 The changes you mention sound great to me though. You really do make this world a smaller place.. 🙂

    I might be looking forward to Mandarin Love and blog topics you mention. I might soon start writing a fictional story involving a Chinese man (half Cantonese/half Han or half Manchurian Chinese) and expressions such as these will be useful to me. *rubs hands gleefully, prepares an evil laugh* If you ever decide to do anything relating to Koreans, you can contact me 😀

    I don’t know I will be able to help. I’m dreadful at expressing myself. xD I am looking forward to reading other people’s experiences, though!

    Great idea! Looking forward to everyone’s stories. I might try and submit my own 🙂 Been enjoying seeing the progression of your blog over the past two years and these new columns will be a nice addition!
