My best girlfriend, who is Chinese, is dating an American classmate. If you’ve been reading this blog, you already know that I am also dating an American, so she has been using me as her own personal relationship coach (which I am more than happy to be!).
I guess other foreign students might have similar situations if they are dating Americans, so I want to share our discussions with you guys. Also, the advice I would give if she was in China asking about a Chinese guy would be very different, so I’ll highlight the different reactions in China and the U.S. for the same situation.
“We had a very romantic and intimate second date, but after that, he did not call or text me for three days! What is going wrong? Will he contact me again? If he won’t call me, should I call him?”
American answer: It depends on how much you like him. If you like him and want to hang out again, just call him and ask him out. Who cares!
