I hear that in CHina there is this gender imbalance which makes it harder for local guys to meet a local girl. On top of that I just read this
article where a Chinese men

has to pay dowry to get married. On top of that I met guys who did date Chinese girls in China and told me that they are very materialistic.
So why do guys go to China to look for a girl...
Don't simply believe everything you read chanta, go there and see why for yourself.
China's gender imbalance only works against you if you're a poor farmer from rural origins. Go to any small village in China and what you'll notice immediately is that there are hardly any young women around - most have moved to the cities.
In the cities what you generally have is girls of both rural and urban origins chasing a short supply of guys from urban origins. As guys tend to care more about a girl's appearance than social status, an attractive girl from a poorer/rural background is an eligible candidate to marry the urban male, but it doesn't work the other way round.
Most foreigners who go to China are immediately considered to be of urban male status with sufficient resources to qualify you as at least middle class by Chinese standards, unless of course you prove otherwise.
Be careful what the media says, online or not. There are thousands of different agendas with thousands of different perspectives around, many of which with pro-western or feminist bias. You got to be on the ground to see things from your own perspective. I personally know many foreigners happy in China, and with good reason to be.
