What You Didn’t Know About Dating in China

China is one of the oldest countries in the world, which means it has some of the oldest traditions. From religion to food to festivals, some of China’s most popular traditions today have been in place for hundreds, even thousands of years. We know what you are here about, though: courtship and dating in China. If you’re looking to charm Chinese women, you should know the culture they come from. Here are four things you should know about Chinese dating culture before wooing a Chinese woman.

This Is What Dating In China Looks Like

The Chinese don’t date in high school

Or they’re not supposed to, at least. In that period of life, Chinese students are preparing for the gaokao, the college entrance exam that will determine their post-high school fate. Anything that could distract from a good gaokao score is considered a big no-no. Of course, that’s not to say that some Chinese high school students don’t date anyway. They just keep their youthful romance a secret.

Parents love to get involved

If you’re seriously involved with a Chinese lady, get ready to meet mom and dad—and then meet them a few more times. Chinese parents are known for being intensely involved in their children’s lives, and that doesn’t stop when it comes to dating. Parents will set up their daughters on blind dates and will not be shy in telling them their opinions on the latest boyfriend. If her ma and pa are saying good things about you, then you’re doing pretty good, pal.

No sex before marriage

Both Chinese men and Chinese women value the notion of sexual purity, and many prefer to be married to their only-ever sexual partner and have that be true of their spouse, too. So if a Chinese woman is in a pre-marital sexual relationship with a man, it’s very possible that she expects to marry him. Of course, it’s the 21st century, and this isn’t everyone’s attitude. But ideals of monogamy and purity are still very common and important in Chinese culture.

Chinese women are expected to marry young

You may have heard this one before. The old idea that a woman’s value is derived almost entirely from her role as a wife is still very prevalent in China, and it puts a lot of pressure on Chinese women to marry in their early 20s. This, in part, explains why parents are so heavily involved and everything is so serious: the stakes for dating in China are quite high.

What You Need To Know About Asian Culture Before You Start Dating

In the modern age of routine global contact and international awareness, you might think that society is becoming more and more homogenized. It is a small world, after all, isn’t it? Happily, though, we haven’t become “all alike”, and there are still some cultural differences. So if you are planning to date an Asian woman, there are things you should be aware of in Asian culture.

Don’t Be Ignorant About These Things In Asian Culture

Dating someone from a different culture can be a wonderfully eye-opening experience. Asia, in particular, offers a rich tapestry of customs, cuisine, and culture. As you head to Asia for your date, or even if you stay in and date someone from Asia, be aware of these Asian culture facts.

Gender Roles

Gender roles are traditionally more defined than they are in the West. The man is expected to provide while the women are supporters of the man. This doesn’t mean that men are expected to dominate the women.

On the contrary, the atmosphere is to be one of mutual respect. In dating, men should be prepared to take on the traditional role of provider. Don’t ask her to pay for anything! (Yes, some men still think that is acceptable in the West, but that’s a guaranteed way to have a short date in Asia).

Celebrations and Get-togethers

Many Asian cultures have a lot of yearly celebrations. Children, both adult and younger, are expected to be part of those celebrations with the family. You will be expected to join the festivities, so don’t be afraid to ask questions about the event. Many people are more than happy to explain their celebrations and the history behind them!

The Importance of Family

You can expect to be brought home to meet the parents. Parents in many Asian families still have a degree of say in who their children date, an echo of an older time when any potential date was also a potential mate.

Though some things have changed and you probably won’t need a parental nod of approval, you might still get to meet your date’s parents. Remember to be respectful, as many Asian cultures hold the older generations in higher esteem than people in the West.

Long-Term Thinking

Dating is not the casual affair in Asia that it in the West. While many Asians have had enough exposure to the West to understand the Western concept of dating, the traditional approach is to think about dating in the longer-term. One-time dates are simply not a staple of the Asian social scene.

Although there’s not much difference in the actual date itself, culture has a very strong influence on the dating process. You and your date will be from different cultures, and your date will understand that as much as you do. Being respectful of your date’s culture will help keep things going smoothly between you. This could lead to a wonderful long-term relationship, and you will both be richer for the experience.

Relationship Fundamentals You Absolutely Should Have | Asian Date

Relationship Fundamentals You Absolutely Must Have

There are a lot of different elements that we look for in a perfect match. Some of them are negotiable. For example, we can do without being too specific with our match’s hair color. We may prefer blond, but if a special person with brown hair comes along, then we won’t mind. But, there are elements, also known as relationship fundamentals, that we cannot compromise on.

How Many Relationship Fundamentals Are In Your Partnership?

The elements that go deeper than looks should never be adjusted just for the sake of being in a relationship. We all deserve someone who can love and care for us, as well as give us the following relationship fundamentals:

Trust

Trust is a non-negotiable fundamental that will allow your relationship to flourish when it is present. Both parties have to trust each other, whether they are in each other’s presence or not.

Humor

You shouldn’t be in a relationship that’s boring and stiff. You should be able to laugh with and at your partner. Because you two are in a relationship, you should be as one, not minding each other’s faults and just laughing at mistakes that are too silly for words. Humor also makes you feel more connected with each other. It fosters the friendship aspect of the relationship.

Compassion & Respect

When one person in the relationship is down, it’s important for the other to boost this person up. Compassion is all about showing kindness and understanding when one person is struggling or has a problem. Compassion can also foster respect, and it can make your partner feel safe to be with you.

Freedom

For most people, it is ironic to say that you need freedom when you’re in a relationship. The truth is, you actually do. You should have the freedom to be yourself. You should think of your relationship and make it a priority, but you should have enough room to grow as your own person.

Learn To Nurture These Relationship Fundamentals

How many relationship fundamentals do you spot in your own partnership? If your answer is “not a lot,” then you know that you have more room to grow as a couple. Don’t give up on your relationship just yet. It just means that you haven’t reached a point where you and your partner are more connected. Put in the right amount of effort and you will eventually get there. For more dating tips, read other posts on the blog.

Facts About Women You Should Learn And Understand | Asian Date

Facts About Women That Will Save Your Love Life

Do you feel like you already understand women? Most men do, but there is still a lot more to learn when it comes to facts about women. For all you know, your beliefs might not even be accurate. Remember, the more that you study how a woman’s mind works, the closer you will be tofinding a date.

Facts About Women Most Men Don’t Know Yet

Everyone knows that woman are complex creatures. However, most men make the mistake of believing that the way they think can be figured out with just a few years of studying one female. Surely, not. There are still a few facts about women that men need to learn and understand:

1. Integrity

Men and women understand integrity differently. Their definitions may be the same, but men are true to their word. Women, on the other hand, are true to their feelings. Just look at the major themes of most romantic stories. Women act according to how they feel. If they feel that something is right, then they will go for it.

2. Attraction

By now, you may already know that what women say is sometimes different from what women do. A lot of women say that they want to be with a nice guy, but the truth is, they want to be with someone unpredictable. Women want someone who can be in control (not all the time, of course). Attraction, to a woman, is a choice. They’re looking to feel that spark and excitement.

3. Sensitivity

A lot of people will tell you that it’s unfair to say that a woman is more sensitive than a man. Actually, it’s a biological fact. The way a woman’s mind works is totally different. A woman sees sharing as expressing how she feels but a man sees this as complaining. For you to be in line with how a woman thinks, you have to be more sensitive to her feelings. If she shares a story with you, you don’t have to comment on it. All you have to do is listen and be more sensitive.

Learn These Facts About Women To Improve Your Love Life

What do you think of these facts about women? Definitely, you will need to learn more. But, the main lesson that you should take away from this is that you need to spend more time to get to know the woman you are interested in because she is complex and unique.
