Chinese women and dating rules
Or in other words, you sometimes have to put down the organic quinoa and just buy a bag of white rice. The difference is that in China, a commitment is expected. Locals here don’t have to go through the awkward conversation of “defining their relationship” and using the word “exclusive.” If the basic requirements are met and they go on a few dates, a commitment is already established. Speed dating is a great way to practice your conversational skills and bring out the “interesting” in anyone. It’s just so classless and disrespectful, it would have me wondering how much of a dick they could be to me. Also, I think articles like "Heartbreak," "Stages of Attraction" and "Rejection" simplify the guesswork that we drive ourselves crazy over. I'd be curious to know how dating in Beijing is different than other countries..France, or Sweden.But in the US, even if you’ve already met the parents and attended the best friend’s wedding, you’re still not in a committed relationship until it is verbally awarded to you. Some people go into dating with a list of their “requirements.” People obviously make these lists based on their previous experiences. What’s the best/strangest place for dates around here? I also have some fool-proof pick-up strategies but I’ll leave the guys to find those for themselves. As a result, relationships progress and die faster than in real life. If I went on a blind date with Yue Xu, I would walk out of the room within 10 seconds. No, sorry lady, your 'winter expiration date' is up. " see a lot of foreigners in Beijing being extremely rude to the fuwuyuan..." Funny, in five years in Beijing I've never once seen this.Also, it can get quite incestuous as the circle is small and gossip-ridden. The thing unique to Beijing is the addition of sexually curious local girls. The thing is, there’s a huge difference between guys who only date Asian and guys who just happen to date Asian. This world is sometimes too much for one person to handle. I'd say the locals set the global standard in being rude to waitstaff.It’s her love life — or lack of one — they prefer to discuss. Chen is among thousands of women living in Beijing and Shanghai, who are considered “shengnu” — leftover women — a term widely used by society and the state-run media when referring to unmarried women past the age of 27.Though many single women have recently begun to push back on the term, traditional attitudes among China’s older generation still prevail: Get married young or risk becoming unwanted goods.A decade ago, my plans for coming to China included teaching for a year, two...maybe even three, before returning to the US to start my teaching career.
At 32, she makes a comfortable salary as a researcher at a nongovernmental organization in Beijing, travels several times a year, lectures on climate issues and has an active social life. Chen visits her parents in her hometown, Quzhou, they’re not interested in hearing about her latest adventures.

In fact, I moonlight as a rather well-connected man-about-town in the expat community here (or rather, I was doing so earlier this year… Chase woke up one day in 2004 tired of being alone.
So, he set to work and read every book he could find, studied every teacher he could meet, and talked to every girl he could talk to to figure out dating.
