Dating a chinese international student Cam chat for freaky adults
I don’t think it’s fair that Chinese will adore you for speaking Mandarin even worse than a toddler in China, while Americans might regard my Chinese husband as a child for speaking English with a slight accent.
But I didn’t make the rules here — and this generally works.
So I’m not surprised he wouldn’t make any move in your direction.
Now, if you really want to get his attention, just say something to him in Chinese.
Second, English is not his native language, which adds anxiety to an already anxiety-inducing situation (talking to women) in a culture that’s not always that friendly to him (see my first point).
But then that’s an opportunity to tell him you’re a beginner struggling your Chinese — where you then ask him, Believe me, this is so empowering for him.
He looks very shy and maybe has a little bit of trouble speaking English [he’s usually carrying a portable translator, that I’ve seen] I’ve tried and thought of a way of making small talk, but the only thing that comes to mind is asking him for help in learning Chinese, but I don’t want to offend him in any way or weird him out.
I’m a very shy person when it comes to guys that I crush on, I’ve never made a move on a guy with a different ethnicity than mine, so I’m not too sure what are the dos and don’ts in this case or if there’s any.
I would start with something more casual like “” (I like you).
