After four years, scads of lays, and many great girlfriends (plus plenty of failures along the way), he launched this website.
As you may expect, dating is a little bit different in China than it is in most Western countries.
The basics are the same—people are people everywhere—but there are still a few differences regarding culture and social cues to note.
Because of China’s rigorous college entrance examination, dating is rarely tolerated among high school students. That doesn’t mean that Chinese teens don’t have high school crushes or even relationships (mostly secret ones).
In general, sex before marriage in China is less common and considered more serious than it is in many Western cultures.
Attitudes toward sex are changing, especially in more cosmopolitan cities like Beijing and Shanghai, but in general, many Chinese women see sex as a sign that a relationship is headed towards marriage.
That’s why if you’re dating someone who is Chinese, it’s very important you make a good first impression with the parents!Chinese couples also sometimes refer to each other as “husband” (老公) and “wife” (老婆) even when they’re not actually married—another indicator of the serious implications dating in China.Of course, these are all just generalizations, and they don’t apply to all Chinese people.More than tradition, society, or culture, dating in China is governed by what the specific individuals in the relationship think and feel, and it’s not too hard to find Chinese couples that don’t fit all or even any of the general observations above.The process of courtship in China seems to be much more important than the process of courtship in the United States.
