Toad, the Chinese certainly have their flaws, one of which is how easily they group up 'foreigners' together and generalize. It's a shame that in seeing me, they might misconstrue the fact that I'm as much of a dick as you are.

If you're so unhappy about China or the Chinese, that's fine, just stop spewing your vitriol everywhere and go back home. The only thing you've managed to prove in your posts is that you're a match for the retarded trolls you reply to. You've managed to equal vehruogland's asinine comments with your bigoted regurgitations. Well done.

The question is WHY you ask someone else to buy you something that YOU want?

YOU want it so YOU buy it. Does not matter if he happens to be a billionaire or other crap, he does not have the obligation to buy you anything, especially something so expensive.

Or maybe that boyfriend is more like a cheap sugardaddy and she's just another mistress. Can she be too dumb to realize? If that's the case, she could legitimately ask for an iPad...

Just from reading your posts I'd say you don't deserve an Ipad. Or anything for that matter. If you want your boyfriend to spend lots of money on you for no reason then date a Chinese man. Problem solved.

Maybe if you're a good girl and eat your vegetables he might buy you one.

I see noone has really replied you seriously so allow me to try:

"Not Yet" means this relationship is not serious and please don't make any plans for the future.

The fact that your Boyfriend is rich is irrelevant. Rich people are not stupid and they do not spend money on what they don't want.

The reason your boyfriend doesn't want to buy you an iPad is that he doesn't see you as his future wife. You are just a girl he's dating and you will most likely find yourself alone very soon.

Forget about any gifts from this guy. Be realistic. Enjoy your time with him and focus on self-improvement. Keep an eye out for more serious, sincere guys and wait for that real "Click" or "True love".

Again !... if you want an iPad?... buy it yourself!...that's probably what he's thinking!
If not! ..then he probably doesn't think you are worth it or he doesn't plan on staying with you much longer because of your Sa Jiao ways ! lol

Yeah,,, he probably feels like you're using him, so he ain't going to take the relationship seriously and consider you a future wife...

He probably doesn't have any respect for you because he knows you ask slanderous questions about him on the internet. So don't expect to get an iPad anytime soon.

vehruoglan, these people are being a little cruel with their answers, but most of them are essentially correct.

He doesn't think you're worth it. If he is really rich, he probably makes wise decisions with his money. If he doesn't buy you an Ipad, there is probably a good reason. He doesn't think you deserve one. I don't know you, but you seem a little naive and immature. You are with a man for 3 weeks and you expect marriage. You want him to buy you expensive things and to wait for sex, but you don't communicate with him. Why are you asking us these questions? If he is such a great man, ask him!

You seem barely ready for a relationship. It is true, most chinese girls are more immature than western girls of the same age. You should know these basic things about western culture:

Don't ask for expensive gifts so early in a relationship unless you are putting out. (I am not encouraging you to put out, actually I am in favor of waiting until marriage, I'm just stating the obvious)

Don't speak about marriage after only 3 weeks together. This is far to soon! We get married for love, not for money (usually). You cannot really know someone after only 3 weeks.

Stop asking these questions in a public forum. Talk to your man. Communication is the most important way to get to know him and prevent misunderstandings. Chinese couples in general are very poor at communicating.

And some personal advice: you seem very young, naive, and in love. If what you say is true and his is rich and knows Chinese, he will not marry you. If you want marriage, you are wasting your time. You are not in his league. You have no idea how over your head you are. As someone else mentioned, you can enjoy the experience while it lasts, or you should go find you a Chinese boy.

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
