We've heard women complain that Hong Kong men can't be romantic, and then we've heard the same men complain about the same women that they just don't appreciate the finer things in life. So we don't really know where we stand, except that when it comes time for planning a romantic night out, you're probably best off avoiding our advice and steering by your own compass.

Want to learn Cantonese? In today's elementary Cantonese lesson, we cover a lot of damn useful vocabulary for finding your way through the rocky shoals of dating, and if you're learning Cantonese this lesson is pretty much a must hear. But if you need more motivation, we've got it too in the form of an easy way to turn perfectly innocuous statements into emotional accusations that you've been deceived. We look forward to hearing how you put it into practice!

So Hong Kong women think that Hong Kong men aren't romantic? Tell them to consider American Born Chinese men like myself. I'm very romantic. Being born and raised in the USA, I'm very Americanized, but I still value and honor my Chinese heritage. That's why I'm trying to brush up on my Cantonese by listening to popupcantonese. I believe that being a Chinese American man has its advantages. I get the best of both worlds.
