If you just want to be with her in a casual dating sense then you need to let her know – be honest whatever your intention is.
This, however, is not equivalent to having a one-night stand like in more liberated parts of the world.
But one sure fire way of telling that it’s getting serious is if a Chinese girl tells her mother about your relationship.
It’s even rarer for Chinese females to share about the guy that they’re interested in to their closest friends, so telling the parents about your relationship is a big thing. First, don’t get physically intimate if you have not made your intentions clear.
Showing respect towards girl’s parents in China is crucial.
Make sure not to say anything offensive and give them enough of attention.
