Chinese dating and marriage

So, a smart, beautiful Chinese lady is often caught in a vicious cycle where if she is successful professionally she is a failure romantically.The cognitive dissonance of these competing social dictates is immense, and it is one of the primary reasons that, according to the World Health Organization, somewhere around 500 Chinese women commit suicide every day.Often successful, well educated Chinese ladies have a very hard time feeling comfortable around men from their own country who sometimes try to run every aspect of their lives from where they work to what they wear.Further, the traditional role of women that many Chinese men still try to enforce today is in direct conflict with the demands of a modern economy.Yes, about 90% of the population is Han Chinese, which people generally refer to as Chinese, but that means that there are well over 100 million ethnic minorities living in China, which is like a whole other country or two.Single Chinese girls are really, really in demand these days, but that doesn't mean that you cannot find the stunning girl of your dreams.

Nearly everyone in China under about forty is an only child and Chinese parents have turned spoiling their children into a high art.

What most Chinese women want is romance and respect. The government controls access to a lot of political and news websites, but a Chinese bride can still watch Oprah, or one of her many Asian imitators from Taiwan or Hong Kong, read Cosmopolitan, Vogue, and all of those Nicholas Sparks novels, and sign on to a million women's websites.

Generally, Chinese women have it pretty good by almost any international standards.

They do not want to marry a "Little Emperor" who is going to insist on always getting his way and trying to run every aspect of their lives.

There really should not be ANY Chinese women signed up on international dating sites.
