if you are looking for a foreigner for chat only as a language partner, do not expect them to be you ...

'so, why do you want a 'foreign friend'?'

Yes, I'm wondering too! Come clean on your intention, so people can make up their mind whether to be your 'friend'! If you just want to practice oral English, then you are not being honest, you shouldn't be making use of foreign friends for that purpose unless you tell them first and see if they agree!
If you want a foreign passport to the West, pls also say so.
Of course, you may not want to say so if you think foreigners are rich and you want to dig their wallets.
I am not accusing you of any, just if, in case.
And what's wrong with making local friends? Why must be foreign friends? Are you suffering from the 'chong yang' syndrome?

Like has been said before, being friends with someone cannot be forced. It is natural coming through ...

'As for a friend, approaching someone in the street and asking them is strange, you would never make friends with a Chinese person like this. '

Yes, Chinese people are afraid of strangers, their mama teach them from young, not to talk to strangers  (bu yao he moshengren shuo hua) and they grow up with this still stuck in their mind.

I would run away if some stranger in China comes up to me and say she wants to be my friend, bearing in mind many people got cheated by strangers chatting them up! They even pretend to be your 'laoxiang' ie. from the same city or hometown as you.

You can't save people from themselves in most cases.  However teaching people to open their eyes a ...

'Then there was another girl I knew who was stalked and attacked by a guy she met online, the sad part about that was that the girl was dying of bone cancer at the time.'

The flipside to that story is the case of a very old laowai who flew all the way from Canada to Shenzhen to search for a very young Chinese girl he chatted and became friends with online! After several days walking down the streets with a signboard hanging from his neck proclaiming his love for her, he found her!

send me an Email I will send you my QQ

'send me an Email I will send you my QQ'

Be very careful of any laowai who wants to make friends with you without even knowing who you are or what you want, he is probably thinking of what he wants from you!
