To address this question, I had a chance to participate in the recent World Food and Agribusiness Congress.

“Everybody needs somebody” – so goes the song by the Blues Brothers.

It is very true that everyone needs a companion so if you are going to be living and teaching in China for a number of years, it is likely that you will experience dating in China at some point.

English seems to be a very “feminine” subject in China so if you are a man teaching English major students at a university in China, you will find yourself surrounded by young female students, some of whom will of course be very pretty! First, a teacher is held in a position of trust and should not betray that trust.

I personally know of some foreign teachers who have tried to date their students but although this is sorely tempting, DO NOT under any circumstances date a student. In the UK, romantic relationships between a teacher and a student are illegal and several teachers have been jailed for getting into a sexual relationship with their students. Your students and colleagues will gossip about you.

Teachers in China are normally highly respected by students but there is no better way to destroy this respect than to try to seduce a student.

Linda and I met a few days after I first arrived in China.

I was walking around the English academy which had hired me, introducing myself to my new colleagues, most of whom were Chinese. After introducing ourselves and exchanging basic questions, I asked whether she knew anyone who could tutor me in Chinese. It was a very fun and interesting experience for me. But in marriages like any other thing in life, it's not smooth sailing all the time.

I entered Linda's classroom, saw her, and immediately felt some interesting and happy emotions. She said she could, and agreed to meet outside work. In American culture, starting to date someone is not a big, important decision, but I think in Chinese culture it is. We have gotten into big disagreements over me not showing emotional support for Linda in the way she wants, and bad feelings can get out of control when there isn't enough understanding or communication.

We sometimes exchanged non-romantic texts in the evening. She didn't immediately answer, but said she would tell me the next day. Well, she said 'yes,' and so we spent lots of time together, and fell in love. We had a Chinese style wedding in Linda's hometown. We have survived it by apologizing later and just loving each other and wanting to stay together.

After a couple weeks, I invited her to my apartment. The man with a plan By teamkrejados When he first came to China, things were a lot more lax - both in this country and in the world.

Obtaining official documents was nowhere near as rigorous as it is today.
