Well, yes, but also having to open their eyes to the possibility of romance with expat men that under any normal circumstances they wouldn’t go near.Quite why I once agreed to a second date with a guy from Sweden who wore white socks that came up to his mid-calves and who rattled on endlessly about his Chinese ex-girlfriend, I can’t be sure.We Brits have been brought up to consider personal hygiene and table manners as second nature.
These girls are already aware that if you want to be the number one woman in a man’s life, you’ll just have to wait until you have a son of your own.
By my late teens, when my friends were chasing football players, I had developed a thing for men with long hair.
This is a period that my friends tagged my ‘yeti’ phase.
Most Western women shy away from the prospect of having a Chinese boyfriend: they find them too traditional, overly effeminate (it doesn’t help that many carry handbags and adore boybands such as Westlife), and the cultural barrier too immense to overcome.
To me, though, these obstacles seemed like things that would make a relationship more interesting.
Petite and eager to please, these girls are so cute I don’t blame the guys for being attracted to them.
