Beijing dating scene

Global Times recently published an article written by a “Stephanie N.” Titled “Single foreign females in China don’t have it easy“, Stephanie complains that circumstances are tough for her and other foreign women when it comes to finding love in Shanghai, saying that the “odds are simply against us” and calling the entire experience “bittersweet”.No one is spared in Stephanie’s deconstruction of the Wild West of relationships that is Shanghai.

As a result, the streets of the city are filled with smug-looking Western guys holding hands with their pint-sized Chinese princesses.One friend with an actual boyfriend of 2 months commented that 2 months is long for Beijing.Even if a guy has a girlfriend or wife, it often doesn’t keep him from going after other women.Likewise, many women, including many Chinese girls, are not deterred by the guy having a girlfriend (or wife), knowing that the guy likely won’t be either.As said before, Beijing is not a relationship place.Especially when your mom won't stop bothering about getting married.
