These days there are numerous foreign people coming to China, to either study at a Chinese university, work for a foreign or Chinese company, do an internship or simply travel. It is usually only a matter of time until a foreign man has a date with a Chinese woman and vice versa in China. For the most part foreign men experience less problems in finding a date with one of China’s beautiful women.
Foreign men can easily get a date in China, because there are plenty of Chinese women throwing themselves deliberately at foreign men with a view to marry them one day and enter the gateway to a luxurious life. There are quite a few foreign men open to the seduction of this kind of woman, while having a wife waiting for them at home.
Chinese women blatantly throw themselves at foreigners. Look at personals sites in China, 90% of members are females searching for a foreigner. Go to bars, pubs and nightclubs - same story.
On the other hand...
The sight of a foreign woman and Chinese boyfriend or Chinese husband is much rarer than its counterpart, the foreign man and Chinese woman. If you go to any major city in China, you will invariably run into the foreign man-Chinese woman pairings in any major tourist or shopping destination; not so with foreign women and Chinese men.
Why is this. I for one think it has a lot to do with how the respective parties are portrayed in the media. If there are some admirable aspects of the portrayals of Asian women in Hollywood and on TV, it’s hard to say the same of the portrayals of Asian men. Rarely have they been depicted with traditionally masculine traits. With a few exceptions, Asian men on screen have been small, sneaky and threatening-or spineless, emasculated wimps, or incompetents who may well be technically proficient in martial arts, but impotent when faced with "white man’s" superior strength or firepower. Lacking machismo, they almost never get the girl.
Action heroes such as Chow Yun Fat and Jackie Chan rarely get the girl.Asian men can kick butt, but they can’t have a kiss!!
A friend told me he once had a Russian girlfriend when he was a college student. But he said he was never able to satisfy her (yes, in that way), so they parted. The experience was so traumatic that he never sought another foreign girlfriend again.
On the flip side, I suspect that some foreign women might be unwilling to give Chinese men a chance because of money. Average Chinese men tend not to earn big salaries in China, unless they are, for example, bosses, high-powered execs, or an in-demand talent. And if they are to leave China to go to her country, they will face even more obstacles to earning money-language, culture, prejudices.
Anyways getting a bit off topic, my ultimate goal is to find out why Chinese women chase after foreigners (especially my white brothers) like possessed chickens on heat. And don't tell me it's like that in all countries. The infatuation with the unknown. Cause it is NOT. In other countries it happens but on a much, much lower level. And it is mostly done by men. Women from my country don't even like dating foreigners, even in BJ they still search for their own.
