I already speak English, Arabic, French and basic Italian. And Im not trying to be a millionaire. I still dont know where your going with this ! Im in China for a few years and then off i go, The moment anyone leaves China, they wont speak the language again, so why even bother learning that ! And note what you said about the majority of Chinese doesnt speak English ! Thus, you should go speak to your own country men. THEY SHOULD SPEAK ENGLISH as all the world does.

I know why one foreigner recently left China in haste. He was very drunk, and went home to cook up a meal. He passed out, and the kitchen caught fire. He was last seen on the condo CCTV camera the next morning with his luggage, and presumed to have left China and headed back home. He did several thousand dollars in damages to the flat.

Good article, quite a comprehensive list of reasons. Not only many expats are getting the hell out but most of China's bests are fleeing their own country as if they are running away from hell, for almost identical reasons. Their worst, corrupted business people and CCP officials are doing the same albeit for different reasons. Generally speaking, be it expats or locals, the good, the evil and the ugly are all fleeing. If China is so great why is that happening? Period.

I agree, 99% of all crime commited in China is caused by whites. The other half is probably caused by blacks.

"The Great Laowai Invasion: Why Loser Foreigners are Coming to China" .................................................................................................................................................................... "Loser back home" is a label affixed to an expatriate who was a loser in his home country and attempts to craft a new, more glamorous and interesting identity for himself in his new country of residence where no one knows him and the locals are unable to read the cultural signs which mark him as a loser. This often entails knavery, clumsy seductions of local women, public intoxication, and generally shameful behaviour that tarnishes the reputations of all the LBH's fellow expats, causing them to be viewed forever after with suspicion and distaste. Like an alien entering into our atmosphere, we would be captivated by it's differences and oddities, but far from our minds would be the label of a loser no matter how different they seemed. An LBH is a "special" type of person that just doesn't quite fit in. Back home, they may have been teased, out-cast and shunned and either didn't know how or want to change their behaviour, to be able to socialize on a day-to-day basis with others. This is why so many LBH's flock to China because they are accepted for who they are and not judged and shunned as they would be back in our culture. Their impoliteness, loud mannerisms, overstated opinions and general know-it-all attitude would still make it a difficult process to attain the label of 'loser' in China, but like with any alien, one person will eventually step forward to learn more. It's when you are another Westerner meeting this type of weirdo guy or girl, in China, that you can recognize the social awkwardness and gag reflex behaviours they provoke, and safely look into their eyes (if you can manage this) and think that's an LBH in the flesh! For those of us who don't possess a finely tuned LBH-radar, here are just a few ways to spot one: Never had a successful career – has moved from place to place and job to job (train wreck to train wreck) Doesn't have a stable family life – often has left a string of broken dysfunctional relationships and a number of children to different partners and has not contributed to the financial support of them (train wreck to train wreck) Is in China because he couldn't make anything of himself in [insert western country name] Lacks self-awareness Has delusions of grandeur (e.g. thinks himself a misunderstood genius) Invents an exciting and interesting background story about his life at home (that doesn't make sense on closer inspection) Indignant/angry/violent when details of his back-story are questioned or discovered to be obviously false Expert on China and all things Chinese (likely to live in a western style gated community, drinks and eats almost exclusively in western style bars and restaurants, has probably never been more than one hour from home-base) Expert on foreign politics, Chinese politics and anything newsworthy and will argue his opinion whether you want to hear it or not. Believes themselves to be untouchable and above the law (I'm an [insert country], they can't do anything to me/I know [insert title of local official they met once]) Dear friends, if you know an LBH or meet one (oh the humanity), smile, agree with everything they say then politely excuse yourself and get the hell away from them. Should you develop a relationship you will be automatically assumed to also be an LBH and when something bad does inevitably occur you will also go down with them. (Some of this blog is copied from others and some is original content. This is the internet afterall.) Comments and personal stories about an LBH you have met are welcome .................................................................................................................................................................. http://www.gzstuff.com/profiles/blogs/i-saw-someone-make-a-comment-about-a-loser-back-home-a-few-days?xg_source=activity

Loser back home, winner in China right? I must agree with you that about half the "expats" here are that. What makes me laugh is the fact that a loser in the West is generally better company, educated, knowledgeable, has better hygiene, social skills, personality than the average Chinese. It seems China asked the west for our experts and we sent you our B team. The funny thing being that Our B team seems to be enough for China. It must be annoying having a LBH do nothing and having the girl you like go with him whilst you sit at home typing anti westerner posts he is balls deep in that girl. Chin up guy, there are plenty of Vietnamese girls for sale on the Chinese market now. Hopefully no one will realise that you are also a loser back home, just without the chance to go somewhere else and make money. Final thought, If someone who would be considered a loser in one location decides to move somewhere with more opportunities. Does that really make him a loser? He now has a higher paying job, a girlfriend and a new social network. It looks like the "LBH" has identified the problems in his/her life and found a solution that solved all those problems. That sounds like a winner to me. The real loser would have stayed in the same location and not solved his problems.

Which fantasy world do you live in? The majority of the "expats" are losers in China and are with those uneducated factory worker women. The well educated and career minded Chinese girls don't want you because you have no class and you don't have a real job. The majority of expats have poor socials skills, cheated in college, are knowledgeable about popular culture and nothing else, and don't know how to bathe and clean their nasty apartments. You English language entertainers are not teachers and would never be able to get a real teaching job in America's public schools because you don't have a teaching license. English language entertainers don't get paid that much and you can't make this into a career. Once your English entertaining gig is up, you'll have to return to America or whatever country you are from and start all over being a loser. Most loser expats socialize with other loser expats, the well educated and professional expats don't want to hang around the loser expats. If you guys decide to marry a Chinese girl and have children, they will most likely look Asian. Half Asian, half white children are called hapas, and the majority of them hate their parents because their parents bully them for looking Asian. You whites need to stop being racist towards Chinese people or Asian people in general because of karma. Also, quit thinking you are the shit in China, you're just a piece of. I have a real job, make good money and have a hot girlfriend. I'm only responding to the comments on here because I'm tired of you expats coming to China thinking people worship you, they don't!

" The majority of the "expats" are losers in China and are with those uneducated factory worker women" - butt hurt man But you said foreigners are stupid and can't speak Chinese, they are with uneducated factory workers who can't speak English??? The well educated and career minded Chinese girls end up being called left over women by Chinese men and ignored when they turn 30. It is very hard to cheat in universities outside of China. In China it is so rampant that they had to make a law against cheating because it was so bad. In the West you have to study and pass to get your degrees, you can't pay for extra points in exams unlike the gaokou either. I don't understand your comment about hygiene, I haven't met a bad smelling westerner here in China, I have noticed that about 50% of Chinese people I see here have dandruff. This leads me to believe that washing your hair is not something that is done regularly, probably because if a cold breeze touches damp hair you will die. I agree that the requirements for foreign English teachers are a lot lower than if they were in their own countries. Perhaps you should mention that to your government. I am sure they will listen to the voices of the people and change government policy. How many mixed race children do you know? Do they really bully their own children? That is probably because they don't care about their families unlike Chinese people. lol. You only have a girlfriend congratulations. Have you finished paying for her yet or are you still waiting for your father to sell his kidney so you can pay her parents?

Uneducated factory worker women are the only women you expats can trick. You just flash your money and they come running towards you. There is no need to talk. Once you are tricked out of your money, they leave you! It's better to be an unmarried well educated career minded woman at 30 than to be married to an LBH. Cheating is rampant in American colleges, you guys are there to party not to get an education. Have you been to a gaokao? You can only image what goes on. Get out of your fantasy world! It is hard to cheat on the gaokao, teachers and those who administer the tests have to follow strict procedures in order to eliminate cheating. My girlfriend is actually hapa, and I don't pay her anything! She doesn't like white guys because of her white father.

So let me get this straight Mr. Butthurt. You are dating the daughter of an uneducated factory worker and a LBH who bullies his daughter because she looks Asian. For her to be hot it means one of her parents must have been. Soooo either the "loser" was a handsome son of a gun or the factory worker was super hot and chose a loser over a Chinese man. Well that or your girlfriend is not really hot and you are dating her because you can't afford to date a hot Chinese girl.
