Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, Bandito. My lady colleague in China is, in my opinion, a ver ...

age is not in issue as there are very good looking 46 years old..however when it comes to beauty, it's cool to call me shallow. Of course we are happy to see loved up couple but the human in me will ensure that I snigger and tut!

I have seen some real odd looking couples on my travels and also in town! But hey, there is someone for everyone
No, I live above Sunset Plaza, it's a little house I rent and it's a little rundown but has a beautiful view, what about you?

I appreciate your concern, but I am in no danger. I suspect you may be (partly) joking.

I have had similar conversations with my colleagues in China on many occasions. The Internet censorship one is usually explained by the government wanting to restrict access to illegal or harmful material. The Only Child policy is explained as trying to curb population growth, but my colleagues agree that the cultural push for male children has caused problems. I remember seeing billboards all over Hainan island with a picture of a young couple with a little girl and text that read "We love our daughters".

I am really amazed by how many U.S. Americans patronisingly categorise Chiense women as "beautiful". ...

I think it's a matter of opinion, Seneca. The thing I find most beautiful about Chinese ladies is their eyes. (Korean ladies often have very beautiful eyes, too.) I don't think it's patronising to consider Chinese ladies beautiful, I think it is simply a matter of personal preference. Some guys like blondes. I'm not one of them.

You bring up some other valid points, and of course the personality is more important. But I'm sure you find your wife attractive, and that is a nice bonus when that wonderful, caring, intelligent, funny, exciting woman just also happens to be pretty.
