As a foreign white American guy who has a Chinese "leftover woman" (using your definition) let me just tell you why in my case, rather than try to guess for every man.|
First, I like her looks. Sad to admit it, but it is the first thing we notice about each other, regardless of culture, right? She has a great smile; that was the first thing I noticed. I talked to her (through work) and found out she is very intelligent. That is another thing; I cannot abide a dumb woman, no matter HOW attractive she is. I need someone I can talk to. She is also strong, emotionally, and rational. I've dated many American women, and found they are largely irrational. Not only was I expected to understand this, but also to accept and love it. But I don't love it. I HATE it. Maybe especially so, because I'm an engineer.
My woman, on the other hand is very rational. Sometimes, more so than I am. it is a strange feeling.
I also feel like it is a savage, chauvanistic thing to suggest that a woman is "left-over" because she is older than 35. This is something that may have been common in wester countries 100+ years ago, but we have developed beyond that now. Women are considered equal in almost every way. (main exception being physical strength)
FWIW - I think that lady in linda's picture above is pretty. Great smile, pretty face, average or a bit chunkier than average by American standards. She's quite fat by Chinese standards, I guess.
