I don't think any of those things in the article are "fears" except maybe for pollution. I've lived in China for 10 years. I still can't carry a conversation in Chinese. This hasn't stopped me from making dozens of good Chinese friends. The women will come to you with a cell phone to get your QQ and/or WeChat. All will have translation software. Although, most of the ones who do approach you will want money or a ticket out of China. So dating or finding a wife is never a fear. Food: yeah could be an issue; then again there are 1.5 billion people who eat Chinese food and are alive.
