Right now (October 2013) I’m living together with my Cantonese boyfriend and his parents.We are in the process of renovating the old family house for us.Chinese man is expected to and wants to take care of his loved one, to be the breadwinner of the family.
But at the same time you get a man who wants to take care of his family, is willing to work hard for everyone’s happiness and loves kids.
Someone who knows why he is dating you and will let you know it too. If you meet a great Chinese guy then go for it, don’t let the stereotypes or someone’s bad experiences hold you back.
When you get married they will start waiting for a grandson.
Taking care of you Chinese guys are generally good at taking care of you, or at least a good Chinese man is.
Of course, short is relative; what we consider “average” height varies depending on geographic locale and someone who’s 5’6″ would consider someone who’s 5’9″ (the average for American men) to be lucky.
But hey, that’s cold comfort when women are putting “six feet tall, minimum” in their dating profiles and your friends all call you “Short Round”.Language difficulties Even if you speak fluent Chinese or he speaks fluent English you still might have language difficulties in your relationship.Perhaps his native language is a dialect of Chinese and you can’t understand a word they are saying in the family dinner table?You two might be able to work it out with the parents when they get to know you better, but parental acceptance is important even when both are Chinese.If you two are 25 or older and the parents agree you being together, they will start asking when you two get married.If necessary learn the local dialect in order to communicate with his family and relatives.
