In China (as in most parts of Asia) a woman is considered 'old' when she reaches 28 years of age.
In fact most Chinese men don't want to marry a woman past the age of 27.
The translation provided will be what the agency want you to know rather than what you or she wants to say.
The fees can be substantial and it is not unusual for "clients" to borrow money to fund this.
We started e-mailing each other (yes, a Chinese agency is representing her and I'm sure a translator is between us).
She is the same age as me (40) and divorced with a child. She claims she only wants to find her "soul mate", marry, and live a happy life; and, of course, I am sure she wants to improve her quality of life. I mean I am not purchasing minutes or paying per e-mail or anything of that nature. The dating site and translator must be making money somehow.
Then again I do like to date women with 'experience' but that's just me. If you meet a Mainland lady who's around 28 years old you can expect that she's eithermarried and thus out of the dating market.
With China's one child policy and its' view on single women (low status in their hierarchy) many Mainland women are rushed into marriage.
I found a nice Chinese lady through a free Asian dating website.Chinese culture would harshly refer to her as a "sheng nu" (Mandarin for 'leftover woman').I don't know about you but I still find that age to be quite young. Soon you'll discover why you have all the cards stacked in your favor.In fact you might be so amazed at how Chinese culture is open to you dating her that you'd take advantage of your options.
