Musings of a Mongolian woman: Local vs.Foreign

The question of boyfriends and husbands for Mongolian single ladies. The current situation is very peculiar in our country. The statistics show that the gender ratio is fairly even 51:49 or somewhat close to this ratio. However, the real ratio is different from above. Most men are gone to work abroad, while kids, elders, and women have stayed at home. For young single ladies, it become hard to find quality BFs and husbands. Most men who are left are usually very young between ages 18-25, with low education and life experience. Thus, for highly educated ladies this is not the optimal options. Also, the society still disapproves relationship between older woman and younger man. Next category of men are between ages of 25-35. These are potential suitors for single ladies, however good ones are taken, and lazy and troubles ones are left, leaving no choice for poor girls. The older man, (35+) who are successful, are usually bald, fat, and womanizers. Thus, leaving no "cherry picking" for singles.

On the other hand, foreign men are entering into the "dating" market in last few years, adding variety to the alternatives to local men. On the contrary, foreign men also do have cons and pros compared to local men. Most foreigners who come to this country are from China and Korea. Obviously, good ones do not look for wives in foreign countries. Only leftovers come. And again, no good for Mongolian women. There are some good men, who come to our country as experts. These are the main targets of most single and highly educated ladies.

On the other hand, few words about Mongolian women. Some ladies needs to be praised as they strive to live in such harsh world, developing themselves and taking care of their families and relatives. They value life much more than others. Other types of girls, include the ones who seek "easy" life. Money, fame, and beauty is all to them. Most of younger generations are confined to very "capital" oriented ideas of life. I shouldn't judge them, as it is their liberty, their right to want and value life however they want to. And lastly, probably there are other women, who do not belong to above groups, who are very quite, gray in their existence.

The ultimate choice of boyfriends and husbands lay in hands of Mongolian women, whether to choose local or foreign. Many cons and pros could be listed for both local and foreign. Individual cases need individual approach and judgment, thus GOOD LUCK LADIES!
