Type one: Fending off awkard family questions

If they ask about your love life, ask them about their children's private lives in return. If they ask how much money you earn, respond with a detailed inquiry on their savings. Just like the old Chinese saying: "Don't do to others what you don't want others to do to you."

如果他们问你的感情生活如何,就问他们的孩子的隐私。如果他们问你挣多少钱,就问他们有多少存款。就如古语所说:“己所不欲,勿施于人”。
