Tim is from America but both his parents come from China. They emigrated to America forty years ago and every year they go back to visit China to see their relatives. Tim is now working for a trading company and he lives and works in both and China and America.
Gui originally came from Hunan province but she now lives in Shenzhen where she also works for a trading company. Her major was business English.
Tim and Gui got to know each other at a business meeting. They had worked together for a while and right from the very start, Tim wanted to date Gui but she felt it would be difficult to maintain a relationship when they lived in different places and was also worried about what her parents would think.
But Tim was so very interested in Gui that he tried every way possible to keep in contact with her. Whenever he was free, he visited Gui and he told her that, just for her, he would stay in China and live in the same place as she did.
Finally Gui realised that Tim was serious about her and now they are married and living a wonderfully happy life together doing things they like to do, like travelling the world and seeing many new places.
