Another difference, according to Bruce, is that in the UK, it is usually guys who start the conversation and do the work to try and impress and win over the girls."In China, I feel the girls are more keen to meet with me and impress me.
"With dating apps, people check out one another's pictures very quickly, and if they think you're attractive, that's it," Jeff said.
