If You Have These Kinds Of First Dates, You'll End Up Married

If Your First Date Looks Like This, You’ll End Up Married

Do you believe in love at first date? Probably not, because first dates are always cumbersome. We’ve always described first dates as “make it or break it” moments for two people because the first meeting is usually used as a way to find out if a possible relationship is in the works or if there’s attraction building up. However, a recent survey reveals that now married couples have all had basically the same kind of the first date.

Could There Be A First Date That Leads To Wedding Bells?

There possibly is a specific type of the first date that could lead to tying the knot. Instead of going out and doing a specific dating activity, like hiking or playing paintball, you’ll have better chances of getting married when your first date is less complicated.

Survey Says

1,100 married couples who met on online dating sites were given survey questions. The first survey question had to do with picking an activity that they did on their first dates. There was a list of 20 options. Surprisingly, most married couples answered going to dinner as their first date. Second in the running was going for a walk, and the third most popular option was meeting for drinks or coffee.

What Dating Lesson Can We Get From The Results?

It seems that the common factor that we can observe from the survey results is that first dates might pay off if they’re less complicated. We, all, have this particular first date idea where everything needs to be fun, romantic and perfect, but reality and science say that we need to dial down what we think first dates should be like. Who would have thought that going for a walk would be so good first date idea? Obviously, simplicity is the key.

Why Should You Stick To Simple First Dates?

So why stick to simple first dates? This is a good question. While taking a walk or having a simple meal or drink with someone might not be very romantic to you, but it’s actually the best way for you to get to know a person. When you’ve planned an elaborate first date, you might have a good time, but it could leave both of you not experiencing a connection that we all look for.

Do you think that you’re going to plan your first date with simplicity in mind from now on? Go for it. Try it and see if it works for you. Remember that the main focus is on getting to know the person. We have more dating tips for you on the blog and don’t forget to check out AsianDate if you want to meet pretty girls from Asia.

Can You Guess Which Asian Destinations Are Among The Most Romantic?

Top10sEverything, a popular YouTube channel which compiles all sorts of fun lists, decided to pick the most romantic places in the world. There are three Asian destinations that made the list. Can you guess which ones made it? Watch this and find out:

Three Of the Most Romantic Asian Destinations

Asia is not exactly like Paris, the most romantic city in the world, but it is up to par because the romantic scenery, experiences and food are unlimited. Here are the three Asian cities that made it to Top10sEverything’s list, and why they are the most romantic:

Kyoto, Japan

Romatic Asian Destinations - Kyoto
Number six on Top10sEverything’s Most Romantic Destinations list is Kyoto, Japan. It is the country’s seventh-biggest city. Its significance in history is very prominent having been the capital and the emperor’s residence from 794 until 1868. A lot of travellers refer to Kyoto as old Japan, and that’s exactly where its charm comes from.

For couples, Kyoto can be a honeymooners’ playground because of its natural beauty. Admiring the beauty of the love of your life standing underneath the cherry blossom trees in full bloom can be breathtaking. Couples can also take part in different activities like dressing up in Japanese traditional bridal attire and taking pictures all around Kyoto. A ride on private boats in Arashiyama can be the perfect mood setter before your romantic Japanese dinner.

Istanbul, Turkey

Romatic Asian Destinations - Istanbul

Before we go into the romantic details of why Istanbul is one of the most romantic Asian destinations, you should know that it is a transcontinental city in Eurasia. The city’s commercial and historical centre is on the European side, while around a third of its population lives on the Asian side.

Another interesting fact about Istanbul is that it was a place where JFK Jr. brought his new bride Carolyn Bessette during their 1996 honeymoon. So, what’s so romantic about Istanbul? For one, there are so many places you can soak up history in. There’s Hagia Sophia which was a cathedral/mosque that has been turned into a museum. If you go to the second floor, you’ll have the most fantastic views of the Sea of Marmara.

When you’re in Istanbul, it’s absolutely a must for you to witness the sunset at the Golden Horn – the estuarine harbour. You can then spend the night on the Bosphorus Night Cruise which many say is the most romantic route when exploring the city at night.

Bali, Indonesia

Romatic Asian Destinations - Bali

An island known for its forested volcanic mountains and beaches, Bali can be a lovers’ paradise. It has been a tourist destination since the 1980s. One of the reasons Bali is so well-known is because it has several developed art scenes like dance, sculpting, painting, metalwork and music. Couples who visit will get to experience these arts through various tours that offer cultural activities. Aside from a couple bonding through these activities, couples can also appreciate the beauty of the marigold fields along the roadside between Bedugul and Kintamani.

You can also take the love of your life to different romantic restaurants. There are plenty in Bali, some are riverside and have a 100-candle dinner service. There’s also Cave Dining Service at Samabe, Bali which can also be very romantic. The best part is, Bali is more affordable than the first two Asian destinations.

What You Need To Know About The Chinese New Year | Asian Blog

What You Need To Know About The Chinese New Year

New Year has already passed, but in Asia, there are still certain countries that are waiting for their New Year to arrive. Yes, it’s what you are thinking. Some countries in Asia, like China, typically celebrate two New Years – one on Jan 1st and the other coming (this year) on January 28th. How is this so?

All About The Chinese New Year

Focusing on China, the Chinese New Year has been celebrated since ancient times. In the past, it was celebrated to please different deities. Today, the celebration becomes a mark of the turning of the traditional lunisolar Chinese calendar or Lunar Calendar. That’s why the Chinese New Year is sometimes referred to as the Lunar New Year.

What’s interesting is, next year, the Chinese New Year will be celebrated on a different day. When the next New Year arrives depends entirely on the lunar calendar.

How Is The Chinese New Year Celebrated?

Each Asian country has their own way of celebrating the Chinese New Year, but most of the time, the celebration will include firecrackers, traditional lion and dragon dances, night markets, and parades.

In China, the Chinese New Year is a chance for families to get together. The women in the family work hard to cook traditional Chinese food and clean the house of “bad luck” before the New Year. Other members of the family would prepare the different red-colored decorations for the house. All of the adults in the family would, then, give out red envelopes with “lucky money” in it to give to the little children. This symbolises that they are imparting good luck and good fortune to the young ones.

The Red Fire Rooster/Chicken

In the Chinese culture, whichever date the New Year falls on has a corresponding animal, colour and element symbol. For example, this year is going to be the year of the red fire rooster/chicken. This is important because it will determine how one’s life, love and business is going to be next year. These are all based on Chinese Astrology. The Chinese will have to prepare items of luck and perform specific traditions based on what year it is.

Would you like to see how the Chinese New Year is celebrated in China for yourself? It’s going to be one of the biggest celebrations of the year. You can still plan a visit if you’re interested, or, better yet, you can learn more about the Chinese New Year from Asian Date ladies. Don’t forget to check out more of our posts on our blog.
