you are very specific about the friends you want

so if we are over 39, not tall and not 'nice', we need not apply 

i suppose i can be thankful you haven't specified male or female friends

 

i don't set any limits on who can be my friend, although a**-h**** need not apply 

sorrel:

yes, i know.

it sounded harsh

Looks like you are looking for a boyfriend? I mean, I really don't care if my friends were 20, 50 or 100, black, white, blue, fat, thin, tall, short, gay or straight. So long as we have a good time when we are out, it's ok. I didn't know there were yardsticks in friend selection.

sorrel:

this is china - friends have to fit certain criteria

you have read the posts of a certain other poster who is looking for her foreign Mr. Right in Shanghai ???

Don't I know it! The face thing again! Honestly, sometimes this face thing drives me up the wall. People here should loosen up and try to live, know what I mean? Anyway...to each his/her own. On another note, why are you always so proper? I meant that as a compliment.

smileyMe? Flirt? No no no....me chinaman....me no flirt. What I meant was that I've read many posts including yours and it appears that even when you are angry you are still proper in your replies. No worries, I think you are one cool lady! (No flirtatious thoughts intended).

sorrel:

laugh

i am actually evil.

having worked here in china for a few years, i have learnt that keeping things civil (especially any dealings with a former boss), p****s some people off. 

 

Seriously, it takes a lot for me to get angry

Ok, evil sorrel...guess you are into reverse psychology then? Yup, that works most of the time when dealing with unreasonable people. I suppose some people need to be handled that way. It takes all kinds.

As for the 39 age limit, is it per Solar or Lunar calendar ? Also, you count age from conception date or birth date ? In some places, they have different convention, so you might end-up with someone beyond the dreaded 39 years.

Wear a mini skirt and spiked heels, you'll meet more friends that way.

Go to Ellen's, which is near one of the Coco clubs, I think Banana (might be Jeff though). They have cheap drinks, good atmosphere and it's easy to make friends.

I visited Hangzhou once and would love to go back there if possible.

If you'd come to Shanghai or Hong Kong, let me know.

 

I'm younger and shorter though

A:They're saying you should be in China already because entering China is pretty much impossible at the moment due to covid restrictions. This means schools can only recruit from people already in the country. Also, unless you have dual citizenship you probably wouldn't meet the visa requirements to teach (teach English that is, maybe you could teach other subjects, I don't know) in China. They have a native speaker requirement that means only people from certain countries will be accepted. The second point will probably get this post downvoted, any time you mention the native speaker requirement it brings out one or two angry thumbs - they don't seem to understand nobody on this forum makes the rules..... Anyway, my advice to you would be to look elsewhere. Between China's tough visa requirements and their even tougher covid measures it's pretty much impossible to go there now to teach. The good news is that other countries are dropping their covid restrictions and opening up again so there are probably still opportunities available to you. Good luck. -- Stiggs
