Ok, I realized that Josh does not live in China, so he deserves some slack... A basic explanation:
In the US: Chinese girls are just like all the other girls. Some of them will like you, some won't. The ratio that like you might be lower than the ratio of other girls that like you if they have a Chinese cultural background (as opposed to just an ethnic background),
because people of similar cultures tend to find more in common (they might be more likely to go for ABC guys).
In China: The girls who are meeting you over the internet do not like you in the western sense. For most people, China is a feudal society, and women look for husbands (not boyfriends) based on what the benefits are to them. If you meet a Chinese girl on the
internet, chances are (I know, there are exceptions, don't get mad girls) that she's looking for a chance to practice English, an American passport, and a high-income hubby. Your American income even at minimum wage is probably at least $1500 per month, which
is three times the income from anyone in the girls village. Also, the local guys who have incomes of that level are mostly complete a-holes, because they have a lot of choices based on their income levels. All this makes you a logical choice for a husband,
but it doesn't mean the girls "like" you.
There are not too many girls from the big cities, who went to good schools and can pull a $1500 income, that will bother searching you out online. If you find one who does, chances are she really likes you, because you don't offer her the same economic benefit
as you do to the poor countryside girls who are desperate to get the hell out of here. Good luck!
