Shilo, Wouldn't you prefer somebody more mature and nearer your age who could be your soulmate as opposed to some 20 something gf who you probably couldn't hold a deep and meaningful conversation with?

Just to throw a spanner in the works, check this out, apparently written by a girl in Shanghai (granted, not HK but this is the type of mentality you might be interested in being aware of). Comments are interesting too. Some bits in particular had me completely aghast. NB pls don't think this is representative of Asian women.

aiyah. I think this was just written to stir up attention. I mean, talking about how refined western man _who eat at McDonalds_ are...... wtf??
A few years ago there was a blog in Singapore.... sarongpartygirl at somewhere. Forgotten, has been inert for many years. SPG is the phrase they use down there for girls who try to hook up western guys. Wrote about why she was only looking for western guys, was a good read (if you keep in mind that you aren't the superhero all western guys were in her words...). This here is just utter nonsense.
Hey - less of the Shilo bashing. It works for me right now. After an extremely painful marital separation and bitter divorce I have no intention to remarry or settle down just yet so the HK lifestyle suits me fine at the moment.
Not quite sure I understand the comment about not being able to show off a young 20 something in public. Why ever not?
As for deep and meaningful conversations why not? Surely that depends on the two people concerned more than anything else. As I was previously married to a south-east Asian woman for 15 years with a reasonable command of the language and culture I probably have more in common with that culture than most. Needless to say, if I did choose to remarry it would probably be with another south-east Asian girl.
Therefore, on balance, I'd say that HK (or surrounding countries) is a good place for me to find wife #2 (should I decide to do so). In the meantime, I'll just take it easy and see no reason 'to get a move on' and grab a 20 something (or even a veteran in her early 30s) while I can.
'Veteran in her early 30s'!? Now you're lookin for trouble! Speaking of.. I have a number of female friends in their late 30s and also in their 40s who don't seem to have any problem being able to hook up with guys in their 20s.. Gals can be pretty hot in their 30s etc IMO...Guess it can go 'both ways' sometimes, but this does not seem to be by choice - more a result of how things seem to pan out here with availability
