So even if the problem is not with her Chinese cultural way of dealing with issues, she is dealing with Americans that are only encouraged to continue when she will not say "no".


Exactly the point. If she will be living here, she should learn that 'maybe' is actually a challenge, rather than a polite declination. Try to teach her that in the US, (maybe UK too?) we favor direct, open communication.

I would much rather a girl give me the answer quoted above than to say, "no thanks, you're a loser and I don't want to have anything to do with you."  At least I would walk away with some modicum of pride.

How about if she just said, in a friendly manner: "No thanks, I'm taken." smiled, and walked away? You would lose too much face, just to find out this lovely woman was taken? I would figure, "If she is lovely enough for me to be interested, I should not be surprised that someone else found her first."

I guess she was saying that you are the only man she loves that much in the past 5 years, so the point is, she loves you so much.
