Traditional chinese culture dating
Of course there are exceptions to this rule, but most of the Chinese men out there date to marry They might start talking about it very early in the relationship in order to know if you have the same ideas about dating as he does.Usually if you meet the parents it is a sign of a serious relationship, probably this guy wants to marry you if things continue going well with you.It was in this period where Chinese dating start to evolve.During the 1980s, the communist party of socialist China influences the attitudes and behaviors when it comes to Chinese dating."In the US, 85% of ethnic Chinese still marry other Chinese, but there is no good platform to connect this group of people.” “Both the process and the notion for dating in Chinese culture is quite different than those of the US and most of the western world,” Anita Tsai of 2Red Beans explained.“For example, many Chinese still consider ‘dating’ a much greater commitment than their US counterpart. They were married 99 days after their first date, and just had their first baby.Marriage was primarily a fulfillment of family obligation, a continuation of family line and observance of filial piety.However in modern times, Chinese dating is instrumental in nature as a way of selecting suitable marital partner and a prelude to marriage.
In the olden days of Chinese culture, marriage are pre-arranged by between parents of two Chinese families.“Like many entrepreneurs,” said 2Red Beans co-founder Q Zhao, “I started 2Red Beans with my friends to solve our own problems—finding dates which eventually lead to life partners.” Founded in 2010, and modeled after JDate, a dating site for Jewish Singles, 2Red Beans is an online dating site for the Chinese diaspora or “Overseas Chinese.” It boasts almost 500,000 members, of whom 70 percent use simplified/traditional Chinese as their default site language, 30 percent were born in North America, and only 2 percent are non-Asian.It also has an algorithm that weeds out "Asianphiles" and accounts for Chinese cultural values such as date of immigration and highest level of education.Last month Jocelyn over at Speaking of China wrote On Dating Chinese Men and asked us fellow bloggers to do the same.Her goal is to gather us mus reliable information about dating Chinese men as possible, so when others are searching it online they will get a better picture what is it really like to date a Chinese guy.
