I like this it is from http://www.talktalkchina.com/index.php/2006/03/20/pdas-part-2

I have seen this myself too but most westerners just couldn't do the grabbing bit, it's improper. So the Chinese girl would be disappointed. A good example of cultural obstacles to harmonious relationships.

"I never cease to be amazed at the number of domestic arguments you see on the streets in China. Walking to and from work, I pass by a major subway station and would see close to one every day. They invariably go something like this:

1. Young couple are bickering on street side.

2. Girl gets teary, pouts, crosses her arms, and turns her back on Guy, ignoring him. This is the Pouty Chinese Girl Routine. If you’ve ever been out with a Chinese girl, you know EXACTLY how this works. If you are a foreigner, you do not proceed to step 3 and it all stops right here.

3. Guy gets very red in the face and slightly sweaty, and speaks intensely but very closely to Girl. He forcibly grabs her shoulder and tries to turn her around. This is the Huffy Chinese Guy Routine. Sometimes the force used by the guy can get a bit rough - certainly more than you could use on the street in the West without being set on by about 6 chivalrous passers-by. But in China no one ever seems to intervene in these situations.

4. Girl breaks free and starts walking away from Guy, but she is sure to walk slowly enough that he can catch up with her.

5. Guy stands there slightly nonplussed, shaking his head and looking the other way, maybe gets out his phone and has a bit of a play. He acts like he is not going to follow Girl.

6. Guy follows Girl.

7. Go back to 1 and repeat."

Ah well ...

My relationship is going very well so I usually don't worry about what other people are doing :)
Take me down to the paradise city, where the grass is green and the girls are pretty

Hot Summer nights...



panda,

I witnessed exactly what you describe outside Shenyang train station, last week.

The high-pitched squawking of the Chinese girl attracted my attention. However, her Chinese beau did
not have sufficient strength to move her once she dropped anchor.

I think these sporadic explosions are symptomatic of a patriarchal country where women are decidely
second class citizens, and just store up their frustration until it boils over into a serious strop.

It's also typical that the Chinese boyfriend in these situations almost always sees it as a test
of his authority (in public, too) and tries strong-arm tactics to enforce his will.

Because

I said "foreigners" because Chinese guys know how to handle it better, non-Chinese will not have a clue so they will lose the girl; that was my point.

I don't think it is about Chinese girls feeling repressed. I think it's more like she wants a scene like in a TV drama, she wants the boy to chase her and grab her, she is testing her power over him. Couldn't it be like that?
