You don't seem to know how independent women tick.

While they want to make all their decisions  ...

Why does a financially independent woman want to depend on men to pay for anything she wants? That's a question I cannot answer. I read the news that women are setting the minimum salary standard for potential boyfriends. How could they possibly independent under such circumstances?

When women set income standards for their would-be boyfriends they hardly prove their own independence. A woman who really is independent does not need to worry if her boyfriend earns that amount of money.

Sorry, but Chinese women have too stubborn a money-centred mind. This worship of the cold metal and paper is toxic for real love.

Speak for yourself. Some Chinese women are INCAPABLE of being cruel. But then again, this is true for some women from all places.

I do have a special place for old Chinese civilization in my heart, but modern China today is nothing special, sorry to say. I think people in ancient Chinese dramas are cool, though they are just acting, and that's what I'm in love with, but not modern Chinese. Chinese women today got nothing to differentiate them from people from other countries, except the communist mentality. ....When will China rise spiritually, when will Chinese strangers love and trust one another? When will love and people be more important than face?

Some Chinese women worship the money, and wealth is their only criterion when they are looking for partners. But not all the Chinese women do. I have many friends who value certain traits such as honesty, humor and kindness above all else.

You sure are the "best". Make that the "most best. Trouble is - I forgot what it is you are "best" at.

I believe your fixation on "ancient Chinese civilisation" is just a figment of your imagination. Nobody knows how women were in that period. What has come to our knowledge from that period are sanitised literarz descriptions. Chronicles however do not describe Chinese women in glowing colours. just look at what we know about Wu Zetian. Ordinary Chinese women who must have made up 98% of the Chinese females do not get mentioned there.

And modern Chinese women hardly have a "communist" mentality. What Communism did do to Chinese women is this: it instilled in all Chinese a rapacious desire to worship Mammon, and women just happen to have the advantage of traditionally commanding a pecuniary price to be paid b men. I noticed this greed in Russian women first: they all believed they were entitled to being treated, and if you happened tobe a Westerner their sense of entitlement was indomitable. This no doubt was due to the perverse indoctrination they had received during Communist rule: "Westerners have everything and they got by it illegitimately so there is nothing wrong if you take some away from them..."
