There were 300,000 students from China studying in the US in the 2013/14 school year, but the population pool still seems too small for romance."The Chinese circle in the US is actually very small," said Chu Rui, a graduate student at Penn. The problem can be even worse for overseas Chinese students in the United States.
Chinese Dating In any kind of culture, commonality often makes dating easier.As an Asian American woman, sometimes I too fall into the trap of labeling Asian men as passive.On the other hand, some men might wishfully believe that Asian women are submissive and will cater to their every need and want.Just like my parents, financial stability and a respectable career are basic prerequisites that seem to unconsciously take precedence over many other traits in younger generations.Stereotypes Parental concerns aren’t the only factors that influence relationships, but stereotypes brought on by the American media also fall into play.For fiscal year 2015, there were 85,000 H1-B visas available and 172,500 applicants.Applicants go through a lottery process, so it's all up to luck.Sharing in traditions, food, and basic upbringing and values can decrease points of conflict that may otherwise arise.Dating another Chinese American would be familiar – not just to myself, but for both families.The barrier has stopped many Chinese from falling in love."As you step into your 20s, you get mature and think more about the future," said Li Yichen, a graduate student at Columbia University.
