As a foreign woman in China, its a very different world for us than our male counterparts.
Dating is very difficult - Western men don't even see us, Chinese men want Chinese women. In some ways we are expected to be like Chinese women, be married by 26, love to shop etc. In some ways we are treated like western men (one of my friends says her female students even flirt with her before exams). There are some rumors about us being very 'open' and sluts.
In my city there are very few western women, and it feels like society doesn't have a place for us, so we keep getting shoved into categories we don't belong. While living here I feel like I have lost a bit of my identity. I'm moving back to America, and really don't know how any (especially unmarried) female could live here long term.
