Sometimes talking to Chinese friends here makes me really sad. 😔😢 So I want to give you some tips about western culture communication style🥰😌
1. We always ask ‘and you?’ Even if you don’t care what I’m doing now, you must ask me back 😂 or you could change the topic. If you answer without any question back, I would think that you’re not interested in our chat and just leave it 🤷🏼♀️
2. Never reply like ‘I’m busy’. 🙅🏼♀️It’s very rude. 🤬If you’re really busy, you can answer the message later when you have time. Or you can say it politely, like ‘sorry, I’m busy at the moment, talk to you asap’.
3. And my favorite - dots 😅😂 we never put dots in informal conversation. If you did it, I would think that you are angry with me and you want to cut down our chat. I’m not joking, dots make you sound serious and a little unfriendly 🙈
