Pretend you've known each other for 7 years and go about your current daily lives. The time will pass quickly.

Has anyone here, gotten married and then had to wait months and months for the I-130 (USA) period? What did you all do in the mean time? How many times did you travel to visit your bride in China? Did you meet somewhere halfway (if your wife has a passport and visa)? Lihong and I Wechat twice a day, but it is not the same. I know we have to wait for the slow government to take it's sweet time, but oh.... I am so anxious to be with Lihong. Do you experienced people have any suggestions that are better than Wechat? It is difficult to take time & finances to go visit every month or so, and even then it just feels rushed, and is a strain to have to meet in a MAJOR Chinese area, because the travel time is quicker? Maybe I'm just a cry baby, and impatient, or looking for good advice from my fellow China Romancers about your experiences, waits, and anything else you can shed light on. I love reading the insightful replies, the humor, and knowing some of what I may have to be on the look out for, or watch my step with.

as always, thanks in advance and be well.

SINGLE BLONDE FEMALE seeks male companionship, ethnicity and age unimportant.
 I'm a very good looking girl who LOVES to play.
 I love long walks in the woods, riding in your pickup truck, hunting, camping and fishing trips, cozy winter nights lying by the fire.
 Candlelight dinners will have me eating out of your hand.
 Rub me the right way and watch me respond.
 I'll be at the front door when you get home from work, wearing only what nature gave me.
 Kiss me and I'm yours. Call (404) 875-6420 and ask for Daisy.

 .....MEN ARE SO EASY.....

On Wednesday, January 10, 2018, the Department of State made changes to our safety and security information to make it easier to find, understand, and use.


Travel Advisories replace Travel Warnings and Travel Alerts.  Every country has a Travel Advisory, which provides one of four standard levels of advice.  The Travel Advisory gives an explanation for the level and include clear actions U.S. citizens should take.


Alerts replace Security Messages and Emergency Messages.  Alerts follow an easy-to-understand format with clear actions U.S. citizens should take.


U.S. citizens who have signed up to receive updates via the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program ( will automatically receive the China Travel Advisory and Alerts via email in the weeks following the January 10 launch.  They will continue to receive other messages as usual, including announcements related to voting, town halls, and administrative issues.


For more information about improvements to our safety and security information and to sign-up to receive a notification on launch date, visit

This is what I use when I have time. I really need to get into this course now that I changed jobs and got normal human hours! This is a free trial but the course cost is minimal compared to many others.
