I was once asked over a business meal " how can you tell if a man is gay or not?  " followed a little later by " what do gay men do together ".

The questions came about as the person asking the question had recently found out that another of her customers was gay having known them for 6 years.

I was once asked to go to a spa with some of my wife's men friends.  She told me they wanted to see me naked!  I guess hair and muscle is not commonly seen on Chinese men.  I declined the invitation.

due to the cultural differences,we Chinese may not feel uncomfortable when someone ask us about our ages or our jobs and so on,,,but if you are talking with foreigners ,do remember not ask their sensitive questions,espically related to their politics,reilgions,and personal privacies...

"How old are your grand daughters"?  
I enjoy telling them, "My Daughters are 6 and 9 years old".

Or when telling them I don't have children : "why not ?"

The annoying question to which the answer is always no thank you! Is one found exiting some international hotels in China Guy comes up. hello, you want ladies bar? No. You want sex. No! You want massage? No. You want a man? No. If they are really multi-connected it could lead to Do you want Rolex? No. Omega ?  OMG! No! By then taxi has arrived! Phew!

The one that drives me mad every time I'm in China is a series of questions that I get asked regularly.

How much you earn?
Where you wife?
Why you no marry?
Why you no have kid?
You want wife?

Sometimes I just want to scream, so I explain patiently why I am not married and then people look dumbfounded at me and don't know what to say.
