Yes, some Chinese peasants treat women badly etc. but traditionally, Chinese women take more control than Japanese women in a family.

In mainland China, 70% women have a full time job. I am not sure about Hong Kong but I won't be surprised if you see much more women work there than in Tokyo.
I couldn't say since I was only married to one woman who was Japanese but Japanese women are very powerful but don't really show it. Sort of like the Shogun-Emperor thing or as we say "the power behind the throne. They control the finances and that may be true with a Chinese and Korean household as well. Japanese women (in my family anyway) handle money better than the men.

Same answer as to this question:
Are there good looking women in Boston?

I have a ton of co-workers with Japanese spouses. That's been my observation as well. The man is given a little allowance for spending money. The woman takes all the money, and usually invests very well with it, and takes care of every aspect of the kids and family and such. The man's role is simply the 'outer sphere' and brings the money in.

You should concentrate on finding a beautiful woman who likes to also cook and do laundry...it shouldn't matter if she is Chinese or an alien...

I've found that Chinese women in HK prefers guys with what I call the "HK body" - 6 foot tall, 125 pounds, fits into a men size 26 waist skinny jeans and very long banks that cover one eye. They usually are not open to dating foreigners unless said foreigner is a foreign born Chinese.

However, the white women (many from the British Isle but also a few Americans here and there) in HK are very friendly and hospitable. They usually hang out in the island.

I've also noticed that almost all White guys in HK have Filipino girlfriends/wives.

Interesting. I have a female friend from HK (platonic relationship) who is still single (mid-30's) who mentioned to me that she is having a tough time finding suitable HK local guys to date, and will broaden her requirements to include non-HK guys.

Finding that HK Body from what the other poster mentioned isn't easy. She almost certainly will have to broaden her requirements especially being in the mid 30s. The clock is ticking.

The male/female population of marriage age in HK is tilled heavily in favor of guys. It's not unusual to see a mid-30s woman still hunting for her true love. I've noticed that HK women are very cut-throat in terms of snatching quality HK men because of that. You'd think that dynamics lends itself to HK women being open to dating non-Chinese guys, but not so. I think your female friend is wise to do so.

Believe it or not, there are no shortage of tall anorexic-looking guys in HK. Funny story, when I go to buy jeans, in most stores size 32 is the biggest they have and always plenty of stock because size 32 is like obese in HK!! Btw, I wear size 32. Ha ha. But the girls are even skinnier than the guys. I can just imagine that any girl weighting over a hundred pound must get teased constantly as the fat chick.

But I think a mid-30s unmarried woman looking for a mate probably isn't as particular about her man as the girls in their 20s are.

There are a lot of mainland Chinese women in HK nowadays, but they can have pretty high standards, and are high maintenance. The Filipinas are easiest on the wallet, and they are everywhere.
