Q: Any foreign ladies dating or had dated a local guy?

This question even applies to you ABC's, BBC's, etc. Seems like most of my foreign guy friends have a local gf and all my foreign female friends is single or has a foreign bf.

I tried dating a local guy once.  But since neither of us were gay, it didn't work out.  All of our dates were just prolonged awkward silences.  He did offer to buy me an iPad though.  That was nice of him.

Since I am chinese guy, I guess my perspective can be different from those come from other countries.

frist, the language and cultural gaps block lot of chinese guys from communicate with foreign girls, it is easy to make friends with local guys, but when it comes to a relationship or marriage, it takes great efford.

second, the tradtional chinese society poses great pressure to a serious relationship. It's hard to believe marrying a foreign girl to the chinese.

third, I guess the paradigms that have been mentioned above is a adverse choice. to those who stay together, either the foreign girl is interested in chinese culture and people, or the local guy received good education and understands the language and culture where the girl comes from well. 

to the average people, it's very hard to believe a relationship between a local guy and a foreign girl, which is so different when it comes to a local girl & a foreign guy.

The only combination I've seen is tall, good-looking local guys with insane/fat/ugly (sometimes all three) expat women.

I know one quite hot NZ chick who had yellow fever. And I know a few other cute girls who are also taken by Asian looks, the same way that guys often are towards the girls here.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
