Perhaps it was the result of a different type of education, more open minded parents or just the fact that they've ventured out of their home country.The Western male, Chinese female relationship is quite common in major cities, and you'll also find that the couples aren't just young twenty-somethings.With Chinese guys, having a relationship with them means having a relationship with their parents.Parents get a huge amount of input in their relationships and even in their lives.Fiona feels that her values are more in line with Western ones than those of her previous Chinese boyfriend.As a Christian, her faith is important to her which also means that marriage really does last "til death do us part." She says that Chinese culture has become too accepting of divorce (perhaps because there's a huge push to get married quickly and people rush into marriage) and that finding a Western boyfriend that shared her faith allows her to feel secure with their relationship, knowing that they both have a high level of commitment.
This is nowhere near a comprehensive study, but I enjoyed hearing what they had to say about their Western partners including the joys and challenges of the relationship. You probably know by now that having an Asian girlfriend is a rite of passage for all white men."Date an Asian chick" has become akin to "Go skydiving" or "Live in New York" in the veritable white guy bucket list.All of the women said that the guys they've dated are honest and someone they can really trust.Several also mentioned that they like the fact that they're dating a guy, not his whole family.
