“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.
Finally, schools in China do not approve of romantic relationships between student and teacher.
If you are found out, your contract will be terminated, you will lose your job and may get a bad reference which will make it a lot harder for you to get a new job.
Where then, can you find a girlfriend or boyfriend in China?
Listen up: It's time to go get yourself a teacher ASAP.
“I need some advice on how to get girls to like me. ” Obviously, this student needed more help than I thought.
Not only did he not know how to talk to a girl he liked, but he also thought this awkward 34-year-old white guy who tries to teach English in his neighborhood high school was a good place to start. I told him that every person I ever met likes to talk about themselves.
I was never very smooth with the ladies, but I was honored by his bad judgement. But he was more the kind of cool that was going to crush his 30s. Sweater vests, ties with jeans, and conversations about climate change are the kind of thing that coffee dates and wine parties are made of, but they might leave him hanging in high school. So if you are talking to a girl you like, try to ask a lot of questions and let her talk a lot.
If you are interested, let her know and ask more questions.
