Chinese dating an american
This was a subject that interested me because it has come up in many personal discussions with friends both in and out of China and of varying cultural backgrounds.
I had a lunchtime discussion with another self-media personality — someone intimately engaged in the world of Chinese social media — on the cultural weight and importance of this topic.
In China, he has acted in web series, produced videos, and appeared on reality shows.
I suppose, as a Chinese American, I’ve always been aware of the stereotype of the appeal (or lack thereof) of Chinese men; the idea that Chinese girls are “easy” is the flip side of this coin — it’s a misogynistic and dangerous idea, yes, but we can’t ignore that it exists.
It’s why it made me want to make the following video (I have another one discussing the perception of Chinese and Asian guys worldwide).
Dating dynamics are always interesting to observe, especially the variances in how different cultures or people in different locations perceive certain behaviors or unwritten rules.
In China, a currently trending topic is that of the “easy girl,” referring to a certain perception that local girls (commonly those in East and Southeast Asian countries) favor foreign men.The conversation is moderated by Jeremy Goldkorn, editor-in-chief of Sup China.
