I ONLY WOULD LIKE TO CORRECT IT A LITTLE BIT: a/ I think that AMERICAN / USA, CANADA /, is more popular than EUROPEAN.
When I was attending university (in Canada), I was renting a room in a Shanghai-ese woman's home with her family.
Consider, too, the generational issue at play here: The lovely lady you’ve been crushing on’s parents and grandparents are the ones exerting that pressure to get married, even though she herself may not feel that she’s ready or interested.
Shanghai As an international metropolis of China, Shanghai is at the crossroads of Eastern and Wstern cultures.
Her history and background put a decision to the women living in her. Their thinking, behaviour and even manner carry the hallmark of Shanghai.
I don't know if they are vanity or money-oriented, but they are conceited and arrogant. And following her needs, genetics, she grow up as a woman that is : -good -bad -pretty -ugly... Honestly speaking do you think that for example in Shanghai all of the females like money, but in Xian they like to be poor? So, MOSTLY, you will able to listen that some of these girls prefer to marry even to person from Arabia, but not to a Japanese. There are Chinese don't like Japanese, and there are also Chinese like Japanese, who is often considered as Han Jian 汉奸.
actually, all the Shanghai People are given to this impression!! Girls who want to marry foreigners don't care too much about nationality, but the wealth of the people and the country.
The skin of girls in Shanghai is delicate, soft, fair and white face and they have slim figures and lovely features.
