She might act spoiled and arrogant

Dating shanghai expat

Lila not her real name lived in Beijing, however. But I still have a passion for beautiful Western girls. Culturally speaking, most Asian girls are wary of strangers.

Confusing I know

However, that all changed rather quickly. Anyone who has ever been badgered into doing something by a Shanghainese woman will appreciate the barrage I was under, and so unsurprisingly I acquiesced. Ironically, here in Asia I find it easier dating Western girls. Some of the Western girls enjoy it, but a lot of them are irritated by it.

She'll have more expectations from dating you. Confusing, I know, like most Asian-Americans, it took me years to figure out what the difference was between race, ethnicity, heritage, and nationality.

She'll have more expectations

Western culture is more progressive in this aspect and a Western girl is more likely to go Dutch or even pay for the date entirely. Men in Asia are expected to be the main breadwinners and in general to contribute the most money.

Confidence does come from knowing what to do. Most Shanghai girls have traveled around. As a result, Western girls in Asia, particularly highly Westernized areas like Shanghai or Bangkok, are often treated like trophies.

Chances are she speaks English and has been to your country. This was hugely entertaining, but more importantly it was through our many dining experiences that I came to understand the central part that food plays in Chinese culture. We travelled together throughout China often, and as well as going to the places one might expect, we also went off the beaten track a good deal.

Having a Chinese girlfriend enriched my stay in China in so many ways. That means that you'll be expected to treat her to nice cafes and restaurants. Some great places you can go are TianziFang. Anyway, I really wanted to do my best to experience fully Chinese life, and dating seemed as good a way as any as doing this. But if you approach a Western girl who is new to the area, she might take your interest as an open invitation to turn you into her personal tour guide.

As an expat in this city you're automatically upper class. In addition to that - most guys from China would cater their every need which makes them even more spoiled. In any case - good luck with having the kind of dating life you want while you live in the Orient.
