Thanks for your thoughts - more questions.
I see that the factors include that older men may be more considerate and sincere and that older men may offer more stability, both emotionally and financially. If the consideration is financial stability, is the attraction that it means a better life style, or do you think it is attractive because it may offer a woman more of an opportunity, maybe more freedom, to pursue her own goals in a career, education, interests in art, travel – to develop, grow and experience more herself?|
What about these questions from my initial post:
Is age not important only when they are seeking foreign men - do they often have relationships with or marry Chinese men that much older than they are?
Does divorce and having a child tend to limit them in relationships with Chinese men close to their age?
Do Chinese women in their late 20' and early 30's in China feel their prospects for marriage are growing small?
I agree with you, Summerwine, that one who believes life in a foreign country will necessarily be better than life in China may be disappointed. I am not certain that the quality of the things that matter most in life is significantly less in China than in more developed countries. The life of most Americans or Europeans is, I think, rather ordinary, which is probably something people who know those places mostly through the media do not realize. I think this would be a very exciting time to be a native Chinese living there.
I read one person who opined that Chinese woman are more prone to believe that one has luck in finding someone to be her husband and that the relationship remains to be made after marriage. Essentially, I guess, that you find someone who is at least not too unattractive to you, marry and then work at love and relationship. In truth, that is probably how it works anyway, but Americans put a great premium on “marrying for love”. Was that person’s observation about Chinese women accurate?
