Because dating is a precursor to marriage in traditional Chinese culture, the concept of casual sex is foreign, except among Westernized young people in the largest cities.
A Chinese girl with traditional attitudes would not necessarily choose to wait until marriage to have sex with her boyfriend, but she would consider sex to be virtually the same as a promise to get married.
Your best bet is to book a flight to one of the larger cities such as Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, or Shenzen, and then book a hotel or reserve an apartment somewhere in the center of that city.
This way, you will be virtually equidistant to multiple parts of the city, making dating a lot easier once those messages start coming in. If you are willing to put in the elbow grease and sweat that is required to succeed, you will be surprised what will happen.
If work or extended travel takes your family to China, it is important to have a working knowledge of Chinese customs and how these customs differ from American customs.
This is especially important if you have teenage kids, because Chinese dating and marriage customs can be very different from those in the U. American teenagers are used to a dating culture where neither partner usually considers marriage until both partners are much older.
Expectations about gender roles are much more conservative in traditional Chinese culture than in American culture.
If an American boy goes out to dinner with a Chinese girl and does not pay for her meal, the locals will view him he as having lost "face" or social status and they will regard him as a poor dating candidate.
