What Is Different About Dating in China?
Good thing TrulyChinese is here to help you with your romantic endeavors. The thing is, you have to have open and honest communication. Ask her what she feels and what caused her to have those feelings towards you, then also share your perspective on the matter. This might somehow take some practice, but love is a complicated thing. Much more if you grew up with different views on love. As we always say on TrulyChinese, every girl is unique and different in their own ways. Knowing how they want to be romanced is the real challenge here.
One of the primary issues here is that for Chinese women, there is a much stronger emphasis on getting married early. China is relatively new to the whole modern-stable-globalized-internet still working on that last one, really country thing, and when your culture is over 4, years in the making, old habits die hard. That's because her grandparents' and possibly depending on where in China she is from her parents still value marital stability above all else in their time, given the instability and volatility of their eras. In fact, I once dated a girl who would only meet up at places that her parents AND grandmother had pre-approved; as you can imagine none of these places were very fun.

Hungarian Viktoria Varadi has been married to her Chinese husband for four years. This Valentine's Day , the couple is having a second wedding in Las Vegas. But for her, it could not be farther from the truth. Her experience is mirrored in other cross-cultural relationships where a foreign woman is dating or is married to a Chinese man.
My Experiences With Dating In China As A Foreign English Teacher
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. They simply have too much work to do. But in general, Chinese students leave high school with a lot less romantic experience than their American counterparts. More so than Westerners, many Chinese view dating as a pragmatic affair.
