    Chinese women on Tinder

    About a quarter of the women that pop up on my Tinder is Chinese/Asian girls. Most living in my area, Copenhagen (according to the distance number listed). All conversations with these are the same. I start asking them if they are in Denmark. They say yes. We have pleasant conversion. I suggest we go for a drink. They inform me they are in China. End of conversion.

    Is it just me? Is this happening to all straight men swiping now? After 10 of these in a row I just filter out the Asians. Which feels racist and wrong. But it is what it is.

    I feel sorry for all the Asian girls actually in Denmark who want to get laid

    I suspect there is a reason. Perhaps catfishing?

    If they soon admit they are actually in China there's not much to be gained that I see.

    Perhaps they're looking for someone more gullible and you don't fit.

    I see a lot of similar accounts just on YouTube, pretty sure they're bots.

    Bots are unlikely -- why would a coder program one to ever admit it's in China?

    It seems to me one plausible objective would be to keep the pleasant conversation pleasant enough and going on long enough that she forms an emotional connection with somebody in Denmark. Do it with enough lonely people and there's a chance one of them will be willing to go for a mail-order-bride. You're her lottery ticket; the grand prize is getting the hell out of China.

    China isn't that bad any longer. I don't think mail order brides from China is a thing any longer. My brother is married to a Chinese woman. They've lived both in China and Sweden. Staying in China has a lot going for it. Apart from the Orwelian surveillance, if you just want to get on with life China is a great place now.

    Yeah, while they aren't up to western levels I wouldn't expect much in the way of mail order brides from there anymore.

    20 years ago we frequently had encounters along these lines:

    My wife talking to a young female shop employee:

    Woman: "Does he understand us?"
    Her: "No".
    Woman: "How do you like being married to an American?"
    Her: "I'm happy".
    Woman: "How do I get one?"

    We generally ended up with at least one photo and contact information per trip. (Not that she ever actually introduced anyone--none of those women spoke any English, no point to it.)

    It hasn't happened in several years now. At least in the cities the women aren't interested in being a mail order bride anymore.
