Few months ago I published a poll in which readers were asked to give their opinion on different personal traits of Chinese girls. These traits were represented by adjectives that are most often used by foreigners to describe Chinese girls.
Today, when the poll has accumulated more than 250 votes, I can make some summaries. From the day it was published the poll went through 3 distinctive phases.
First phase which lasted for just one day saw the votes of blog’s loyal readers. It was reflected in the fact that among almost 20 answers, there wasn’t even a single choice of option “Chinese girls are easy”. And the two leading adjectives were “beautiful” and “loyal”. Should I assume that reading LoveLoveChina helps people to find beautiful and loyal Chinese girls? :lol:
Then came the second phase which lasted for approximately one week. I left messages on three biggest online communities of expats in China (ShanghaiExpat, Beijinger and ShenzhenStuff) inviting the members to cast their vote. And as result the option “easy” got its first votes. Moreover, another negative statement – “Chinese girls are gold diggers” – at one moment almost took the leadership. I can only wonder why so many expats stumble into the girls with gold-digging characteristics? :roll:
Third and the longest phase was characterized with replies left by accidental visitors from search engines. Actually, they represent the biggest fraction of readers. At this point I see that the percentages have stabilized and we can safely treat the current results as final.
So… first place unequivocally belongs to beautiful Chinese girls followed by the “army” of their insecure (2), gold-digging (3) and immature (4) sisters. :-)
This post wouldn’t be complete without a short follow-up to another discussion spawned by the question why Russian girls are more popular than Chinese.
Yesterday I stumbled upon an interesting article in Sinosplice written by John Pasden. He demonstrated a funny online tool called “Google Suggest Venn Diagram Generator”. In it you can create a basic query similar to the searches that people perform in Google – with the only exception that it contains an “X” variable and ends with “…” (three dots).
This “X” can then be replaced with three different keywords for three distinct queries. And the result will show you what do people most often insert in place of “three dots” in their searches.
I immediately created the query “X girls are …” with 3 sub-queries (Chinese / Russian / American). Below you can see the results in the form of Venn diagrams, and they are quite self-descriptive :-) .
I really wonder how much time you will spend playing with this tool and trying it with different queries ;-) .
