If there any secrets that Chinese keep that I need to know about please let me know. I met this Chinese girl today. I think Chinese girls are really cute. I am an American white male, and she did tell me that Chinese girls tend to prefer them. I think the reason is that there is not as much diversity in China. Anyway, I hope she can be my girlfriend after a few dates. Your email address will not be published.

Unfortunately, some Chinese women see Western guys as a free ticket to an overseas trip or a foreign passport, but there are gold-diggers anywhere in the world.
Do China’s women obsess over foreign men? - Global Times
The simple truth is Western men are exotic. Many Western guys would like to believe Chinese women date them because they have a more muscular appearance or are bigger in size. It is not true, although I can see how this "theory" feeds their racist ego. I never thought to date a Western guy until I met my English ex-boyfriend. He showed me a new culture, lifestyle and gave me a new perspective on the world, our relationship, and even myself. That was the beauty of having a relationship with a Westerner. My education and life experience made me a strong and independent woman.
It scares a lot of Chinese guys, who look for a typical "good woman" by the standards of their parents. With my Western boyfriend, I didn't have to pretend to be a "cute and naive woman," and I am not afraid of who I am. Chinese society is getting more open, however, dating a white guy in China is not easy.
Sometimes, I get discriminated against by Chinese men on the street. They shouted rude words and they tried to start a fight in a bar for no reason.
If they believe foreign white men lure away Chinese women, why can't they lure us back by having better manners and treating women better? One of my best Western friends is going to marry the man she met in China next year. Love happens, when you are patient.

This is all the more pronounced due to China's rise recently. Unfortunately the past is difficult to get away from and some lash out at their own history and culture. Such coping mechanisms are well documented. What isn't as well documented is the fact that coping with inferiority complexes affects all areas in dealing with foreigners today, including relationships.

Putting aside the viral stories of Chinese companies using token foreigners as a sign of being "international," we can see this skewed perception of reality demonstrated by those who only date foreigners. The excuses are hollow for both "it is just business" and "it is just love" are just masks by the one who doesn't have the courage to acknowledge their inferiority complex, that they worship foreigners and that it plays a central role in their decision-making.
Those with inferiority complexes naturally seek acceptance from those they perceive as superior. In China and indeed much of the rest of the world, this means seeking the acceptance of white foreigners. What is even more disturbing is this need for acceptance pushes that person to do irrational and illogical things.

Western entertainment has a long history of emasculating Asian men and sexually fetishizing Asian women. What this means is that Asian men are never portrayed in a romantic way and Asian women are portrayed as submissive sex objects, usually with white men. What this means is that foreign men have the impression that Asian women are easy and they are entitled to them.
While giving foreign men a confidence boost, it warps their perception to the point it is not about people, but objects. This means those who fail at home go to China because they see Asian women as a reliable back-up option.
Even worse, it means that Asian women are disposable. It doesn't matter to the foreign male if he mistreats his partner, because if things don't work out he will just get another. In China the toxic relationship is completed, where the loser foreign male finds his submissive Asian who has an inferiority complex. There are no doubts some who are perfectly fine with being a racialized object in the relationship, but for people of sound mind and any sense of self-respect, this is a problem and not something to be sought after.

There's nothing like the topic of sex to get people's attention, and to get under their skin, too. But a recent article in Metro Shanghai, titled "Single foreign females in China don't have it easy," struck me as particularly wrong-headed. I don't claim to be any kind of love expert, but I have managed to stay married - to a Jiangsu woman - for over seven years, and I've seen friends from the US, Canada and England marry locals.
