Chinese views on dating Chat egypt sax
Dating dynamics are always interesting to observe, especially the variances in how different cultures or people in different locations perceive certain behaviors or unwritten rules.
In China, a currently trending topic is that of the “easy girl,” referring to a certain perception that local girls (commonly those in East and Southeast Asian countries) favor foreign men.
So guys, be patient when dating a Chinese girl: holding hands, kissing or sex might not happen anytime soon.
Especially be truthful when dating a Chinese girl: her heart might be more fragile than her virginity.
For instance, some members of the Moniba ethnic group still follow customs where one woman is married to two or more men.
Each ethnic group has its own customs and traditions about dating and marriage, some of which can differ considerably from those of the majority Han Chinese.
In China, it’s not uncommon to see a girl walking down the street with a guy lagging behind with several shopping bags, or some guys sitting for hours in the shopping mall, playing on their cellphones while their girlfriends are trying on countless dresses and swiping their credit cards. In China, a guy mostly pays the bills on dates, but he will not pay for his girlfriend’s shopping safaris unless the girl becomes his wife.
Then he becomes an anxious husband, praying that his wife will show mercy to their bank account.
“If a guy and girl express interest in each other, they will generally start holding hands together before they are officially in a relationship; they will probably kiss on the second or third date in a private setting; they will have sex around three months, depending how often they hang out or communicate with each other,” she said. I asked my RA why condoms were provided everywhere in residential halls.
She giggled and said, “Just keep quiet if you bring someone back, and be safe.” I agree that a relationship without sex is an ordeal of abstinence.
Because dating is a precursor to marriage in traditional Chinese culture, the concept of casual sex is foreign, except among Westernized young people in the largest cities.
