China is known to be diverse and exotic in many ways, but it’s not just all about food, language and scenery.
What is also different and makes our lives more exciting here in China are the cultural differences in dating! Of course, no matter what cultural background, an ideal relationship should be based on your feelings for one another, but it can still get a bit tricky when you’re somewhere else.
