Last night I asked a class, "At what age is a person mature enough to begin dating?" I figured my students were intelligent and would come up with some fairly easy answers. Most answers went along with the official government view of "No dating until you're 18." I was really expecting someone to say, "It depends on the person." Instead I was greeted with the following answer: "I think older than 25." I was shocked. I had no idea how to respond except to laugh.

As a side note: the woman who gave the answer is older than I am and married.

You've been in China how long? And you're still surprised by the backwards views of the Chinese?
