She is looking for a 'giving' man to start a family right away. Her child is 14.
On the mainland the PRC pays for school to age 13 after that the parents pay for Middle School, High School and University. Total cost about 30,000 Yuan for all 8 years, room and board and books and food in that price.
She needs someone to pay for her daughter to go to school.
Today. Right now.
Why do you always assume the worst? Maybe she's looking for old fashioned romantic love?
Experience, Winston. Guarantee you that is what the next guy will end up paying for. When a woman is looking for old fashioned romantic love that does not preclude her from thinking of how to pay for her daughter's education. The two are not mutually exclusive.
Her figure is ok. But how does she look so young? Is that common there?
Yes. There isn't much in the way of HGH or BGH in the food supply and Asians have lower levels of testosterone, men and women, than Euro-Caucasians. So they mature much later and look younger. If she is a New China modern girl and has worked in an office, has a degree and has stayed out of the sun, the fields and the factories, then she will look this young. I see it every day. There seems to be a cutoff of age 37 or so. Older than that and the women look like they are 60. Younger than that and they look like the girl in the photos and the girls I see around town. 40 year old women look old, wrinkled and weathered but just a few years younger and you can see the difference very clearly.
Very. You must know Hanyu and be willing to be a good boyfriend or husband. Only in Chinese cities, the Big 3, are the attitudes about dating modern. I think, from your posts, that you are looking for a fling like you have in the RP and China is definitely NOT the place for that unless you stick to the big cities. These girls all know that they have from the ages of 22 to 26 to get a husband and that after that they are 'old' and must compete with the new crop of young honeys coming up. Big pressure to stay thin (45 kg) and land a husband by age 26. 32 is way over the hill. 36 is unmarriable.
If you say "excuse me shau jie" to them on the street, will they stop and talk to you, usually?
I talk to women like this every day. I just cannot continue the conversation for more than a paragraph. I don't say 'shau jie' I just say 'hello' and smile and talk with them. Flyer girls, cellphone salesgirls, girls home from University, they are everywhere.
Do these girls require men to be tall? Or only rich?
Winston, I have answered this over and over. The girls are approachable and nice. You don't have to be tall or rich to chat them up. All Chinese girls will ask you if you have a nice car, own an apartment, have a good job. They all do this or find out from the grapevine. They also want to experience Americans and think that all Americans, ABC or other, are rich. One former assistant here, married last month, was QQ'ing with me yesterday and cooing about how rich I am (I told her I owned a Buick in the States) and that I can visit her at work anytime. She doesn't love her husband and wants me to buy her a sofa. She's 22-ish? I think?
Get on a plane and see for yourself. I suggest a 2nd or 3rd tier city. Xi'an, Zhenghou, Chengdu, Hanning or a smaller sattellite city near a bigger one. There are hundreds of such cities in the PRC. Hit up Wikipaedia and search for them.
Hurry before China gets rich and the women don't want Americans. I give the PRC 10 years, tops.[/quote]
