I am asking a serious question. I mean, rant about the behavior if u like, but somebody please try to explain the real reason/s behind it.

It's not just men.  Not sure why, just something to do with the language I suppose.

 

All the time I ask my gf to please stop yelling at me or I think she's upset and it turns out she's not yelling, she just talks loud sometimes.

 

I've noticed other languages that do the same though....people who speak hindu seem to talk pretty loud as well.

 

I'm use to it.... except for when I'm at the movie theatres, then it gets annoying.

I think it boils down to not respecting the privacy of others who may be trying to have a conversation over dinner at a restaurants.  Selfish, rude, and inconsiderate are the three words that sums it up for me.

I routinely hear the conversations of people on the ground outside my apartment and I'm on the 6th floor! Unaware of their surroundings and simply put...they don't care who they are bothering at all.

Hey OP - Where are your "2 cents?"  You start a thread but make no comments yourself?  Are you trolling or ?????

And sometimes at dinners, the guests have a habit here of one-overtalking-the-other until the dinnertable conversation becomes just unintelligible.

In my experience the women are the ones fond of screaming at and past other people. And then they give you a fierce look that it is their right or something, what can I say, I am just a foreigner.

It's because you stepped on his foot and proceeded to take his dinner table! Not to mention what you just said to him!

It is their face, no one is more important than themselves, so must be heard above all others.

They only speak loudly when a bunch of friends hang out for fun I think, definitely not common in working place. Seeing American Series "Friends", they are also so loud, right?

  This is actually a question that can be answered with simple logic. Chinese men are so loud because their wives are reputedly hard of hearing, the reason being that their ears have been damaged by the loudness of their husbands voices. So the husbands have no recourse but to speak up, so that their wives can hear them. Simple.

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
