1: To make a good impression, always be polite and respectful – open doors, pull her chair out for her in the restaurant, let her choose from the menu first, etc.
2: Be attentive, and ask her questions about herself. Even if you aren’t generally interested, fake it.
3: Dress smartly and look presentable.
4: Wear aftershave
5: Steer the conversation towards your assets – your house, car, earnings, savings, etc.
6: Know the basics about Chinese culture, and learn at least a few words or phrases to show you are willing to make the effort.
7: Be positive, and never openly criticize your family. The family unit is very important in Chinese culture, don’t disrespect it.
8: Don’t put pressure on her. Let things move at her pace, which will probably be a lot slower than you are used to.
9: That said, remember the onus is on you to take the lead. Expect to be forced to break through a wall of token resistance.
10: Impress her. She likely has many potential suitors. Stand out from the crowd. Luckily for you, being a foreigner, that part is effectively done for you.
11: Try to display some of the qualities she likes; kindness, responsibility, and a good sense of humour are top of the list.
