From a personal view it is very hard for me to even imagine a workable relationship.

I mean there is girls, well educated girls, fluent english speakers, working in good jobs, independent and super smart. But then on the other hand they are living with their parents, then they are on a curfew (in their 20ies mind you).

I find it very confusing and it kinda freaks me out.

And what i see around me in many commited relationships between western dude and chinese girl:

-The parents cant know about it (I know so many like this)

-The parents dont approve

-If the parents approve they still control the life on the weekends

Not to discourage anyone, love is usually stronger than that. But I guess there is a massive cultural gap here. Its not only that family ties are still stronger here it is also that they work in entirely different ways.
