    Hi Xiaqing,

    I recently moved to Shanghai and have been having success dating via OKCupid. But they are mostly nice girls who require patience to get them to the intimate realm. What are some of these websites and forums web addresses? Thanks!

        Hello Xiaqing,

        I’ve heard that Chinese women are really only interested in white skinned men, due to the cultural idea of beauty. Is that true? Is a brown or black skinned person attractive to Chinese woman?

        Thanks for your insight. :)

          hello, Kevin, I think there are virtually not too many controversies for the color of skin, sometimes this is also related to the culture, Chinese people generally like lighter skin. Another factor is Chinese people have little contact with Blacks or Browns. What they know about Blacks are mostly from media and movies. Furthermore people usually only hear and remember bad things. So they already have a prejudice before they know a real person. This can be changed once they know the real person. I think most Chinese girls are not racist towards a brown or black skinned person. It seems to be more appropriate to say some Chinese girls may like or dislike Blacks based mainly on prejudice or some other personal reasons.

            i think most of the chinese girls they are not opened minded ,and someone who is not opened minded is uncivilised person

        Thanks. Been to a few, but they all seem to be for working girls. I would like to find some bars where there are some non-working girls too. :)
