Had some opportunities with girls, but I never pursue things when I know I'm going to leave. I'm back in America now though to finish my last year of college. My mom's in China now and I'll probably go back in a year or year and a half. I really miss it. I want to find where to live and settle down, find a wife, etc.


Of course, China compared to the USA is heaven. But, you'd better off finding a Chinese girl outside the big Tier 1 cities, and go for more rural ladies instead.

abcdavid01 - Did the pollution in Shanghai bother you at all? How would you rate it on a scale of 1 to 10?!

I'm looking to go back to China, but I want to live in a city where the quality of life is high or at least similar to the USA and I can make a descent income.

Pollution's not terrible for China. I've heard it said that it's about Los Angeles level. I was only there in the summer though and I heard it gets worse in the winter.

There's a lot of little things that make it even more modern than USA. For example, outdoor ATMS are inside private booths to prevent identity theft. Besides air pollution it's actually cleaner than New York City (less garbage on the streets, etc).
