As for religious discussion, no, these people don't know anything about Taoism, Confucianism, or even Buddhism. I don't think that these topics are promoted in today's China.
Finally, there's always the suggestion that these women are looking for money and/or a visa. I can say that I've experienced this only once from a woman from Shanghai. I'm trying to remember why I got this impression, though. I suggested going to either a film or a play that she suggested for our second date and she said the play. And then I paid for it. And then she decided she didn't want to go out anymore. So I called her out for suggesting this expensive date and she ended up giving me the money back for her ticket.
So...I thought she was an awful person but I can't remember exactly why.
But everyone else was genuine (or at least as genuine as non-Asian women). It wasn't about money or visas. They're just out there looking for Brad Pitt and that's why most of them are still single.
