Wow, can't believe all these crazy Chinese guys who don't want to hear about the fact their beloved spent most of her college years with her grundies round her ankles. A foreign woman with a Chinese man is a rare pairing.Within her small expat community the social isolation was almost immediate.More recently she posted about "three things [she] wished she had known about dating in China" – maxims that seem to apply to any intercultural relationship.Among her observations: "One of my first arguments with a boyfriend in China happened over something that many Americans think nothing about.But in all seriousness, striking a fair balance between maintaining a free and open forum and keeping discussions within the bounds of good taste has been a constant challenge, and our attempts to tackle this problem have had mixed results in the past: When we've tried to more actively delete posts and comments that seemed offensive, some readers have taken issue with what they perceived as our "censorship" while others complained that we were being too heavy-handed in certain instances. I offered my comments as my take on the reality of the situation.Ultimately if we are to keep the Beijinger as a positive and constructive resource for information and discussion, then you're quite right that we should keep closer tabs on posts that cross the boundaries of taste and reason. So sorry your tender and blighted psyche can't bear any controversy.

Here are some key points for foreign men to bear in mind when dating Chinese girls: if you are not serious about the relationship with your Chinese girlfriend, don’t visit her parents and family; however, do enquire about their general wellbeing, health and any newsworthy matters she may have mentioned don’t dominate or be the centre of attention at social gatherings—you need to earn respect from the friend of your Chinese girl and her family.

Be relatively humble, polite and not overbearing, even if it’s not your usual character giving and receiving “face” is an integral part of Chinese society and you really don’t want to be guilty of upsetting possible potential future in-laws; avoid any issue which may cause disrespect or show lack of respect to the Chinese girl’s family avoid shouting, swearing or getting angry as general misbehaviour is severely frowned upon by Chinese girls and may be a relationship breaker.

These days, you can’t help but notice mixed race couples almost everywhere when you travel around any Asian city or even to smaller towns.

Although it seems extreme, in the not too distant past, the families of some Chinese girls actually forbade their daughters to talk to, never mind get involved with, a man not of their own ethnicity as other people often looked down on Chinese girls in a relationship with a foreign man, accusing the girl in question of all sorts of imaginary misdeeds.
