While other Asian countries have welcomed foreigners for centuries, it wasn´t until recently that China truly opened its gates to western society. Since then, The Empire of the Middle has attracted millions of foreigners to its cities and has sent its own waves of immigrants all over the world. Nowadays, independent of which country you live in, it is not unusual to see people with Chinese origins. So if they are the most common people in the planet and we co-exist with them daily, then why is there still so much mystery and misunderstanding when it comes to Chinese culture?
Well, one of the main reasons for this is the fact that China is a country with about 5000 years of history and although it has been more than 20 years since it began opening it´s doors to the world, most foreigners haven´t even begun to scratch the surface of this admirable ancient world.
Before we start talking about your future Chinese wife, it is important to make a key observation here: Chinese people are very proud of their country, their heritage and their heroes. They live and breathe tradition in almost everything they do. Even the younger generation, which is more open to western ideas, is still very much bound to some older Chinese ways kept by their parents and grandparents. If you truly want to connect with your future Chinese wife, then getting to know some of her people´s traditions and ideas might prove crucial to your success. Not to mention the fact that a foreigner who masters the Chinese language or displays knowledge and interest in Chinese culture will always have everyone´s attention.
Chinese tradition calls for women to be kind, feminine and somewhat obedient to their husband and elders. This gives them a unique personality that contrasts violently with the more outgoing ways of the western woman. On the outside, the enchantment of the Chinese woman lieson their silky black hair, porcelain hairless skin, petite bodies, and quiet oriental elegance.
One of the most admirable things about the Chinese woman is the great effort she puts into maintaining the health and proper nourishment of her loved ones. Most Chinese people treat themselves with traditional medicine and your Chinese wife will probably be no exception. There is nothing more heartwarming then having your Chinese girl prepare you a nice cup of herbal tea whenever you are feeling under the weather.Chinese women seem to have a tea or soup recipe for everything. A bowl of soup for this, a cup of tea for that and for everything else there is always a glass of hot water! Taking good care of you and sometimes making small sacrifices is the Chinese woman´s way of showing love in a daily basis. While in the West people often tend to verbally express their love, in China people prefer to demonstrate it through actions.
To fully understand your Chinese wife, you will constantly have to make a certain amount of effort to get into her mind and fin
d out what she is really about. The reason for this is that Chinese women are not as straight forward as western women. Western women will almost always tell you what they want and sometimes even compete with you for it. Chinese women; however tend to be more timid and will often hold back their thoughts in favor of harmony. Because avoiding conflict is a common thing in China, your Chinese wife will almost always be willing to make exceptions in the relationship. Your job as a loving husband or boyfriend will be to make sure that this happens as little as possible.
Although Chinese women can be pretty sweet, kind and extremely sensitive; there are some exceptions that should be discussed. Now that you know how sweet your Chinese wife can be, we should probably talk about how to avoid some potential pitfalls that may or may not be lurking on your way to finding your perfect Chinese soul mate.
