Let’s face it, the dating scene in Shanghai is a pretty loaded subject. With so many aspects of dating to explore, we’re narrowing in on a specific but widely seen phenomenon. How often do you see a foreign man with a Chinese woman versus a Chinese man with a foreign woman? We explore the dynamics between foreigners and locals, focusing on how gender roles and cultural expectations impact dating choices.
