comment How useful are the kanji in reading Chinese?
It's hard to say. I don't have a statistic data on how many characters overlap in the two languages. In my opinion, two many characters are used in both languages, however, some characters have different shapes or meanings. Japanese mantains more classic meanings for characteters. You could look at my previous post chinese.stackexchange.com/questions/167/…

Although "相亲" could mean to date a girl/man with the help of a matchmaker, here I believe it means "to be close to the other"

and you could even simply say "给" in this situation, which is casual or could be not impolite.

@mayueyang Yes, you can call it 小拇指. I personally don't like to use that word. Thanks, and I will edit my answer.

comment Is this a Chinese Proverb?
Can you provide more info and context? I searched the translated version by @NS.X, but I did not find any origin either. I haven't heard of such a proverb in Chinese, but I can give you a similar proverb in Japanese. >聞くは一時の恥 聞かぬは一生の恥 >Asking is a shame in a while, while not asking is a shame in all your life

comment How to ask “is it really so that…”?
Hi, welcome to this site! As for your question, I've suffered it too, but the moderator Alenanno gave me a good solution-just use the html tag <Strong>words</Strong> to make the words in bold.

@BertR It's very kind of you to improve my answer. Of course I don't mind, instead, I want to say "thank you". Sorry for my late reply. I am very busy.
