So what are some of the pros and cons of having a Chinese girlfriend? Let’s have a look:
Pro: The Majority of Chinese Women Are After the Simple Things
What we mean by simple things is – a family, a loving partner and financial stability. They are very family oriented and aren’t the perfect fit for casual dating. Things will get serious fast, and you need to be ready for that.
Con: You Are Automatically Seen as Financially Successful
It is the common way of thinking in China that Western men have achieved financial success. Especially so if you come from the U.S. or Europe. It is understandably a misconception, but they are still very hung on it.
Pro: Honesty is Highly Valued
Though there are several misconceptions about the Chinese culture about foreigners, you still shouldn’t pretend to be someone you are not. Honesty is at the top of the list of values over there. Be honest about your character, your education, your financial status and so on. All that matters is that you are sincere and want to work hard.
Con: Women Who Are After Something Else
It is unfortunate, but there are always those who are interested in scamming people who are sincere about finding love online. There are quite a few of those interested in a green card marriage. Take time to get to know the person before you get serious. Also, read about ways you can detect a scammer when you meet them.
Pro: You and Your Kids Will be Well Taken Care Of
Chinese women are focused on being as nurturing as possible. Once they get into a relationship they dedicate themselves to it. It is like a natural instinct to take care of those around them. That includes you and the family you create. Be ready for getting pampered by her.
There are both upsides and downsides to getting a Chinese girlfriend. It is really up to you to figure out if it is something you want to get yourself into.
