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).But in general, Chinese students leave high school with a lot less romantic experience than their American counterparts.This is a big part of why dating is often taken so seriously.Chinese young people often feel like they don’t have the time to “play the field” that their Western counterparts are afforded by society.
With the use of modern technology, people can date via telephone or computer or meet in person.
The ultimate goal of most relationships in China is marriage.
Young Chinese adults are often under a lot of pressure from the elders in their family to find a good husband or wife and get married relatively early.
The actual experience of dating in China can also be somewhat different.
For example, you’ll often see Chinese couples wearing matching outfits, which is almost unheard of in the West.
That’s why if you’re dating someone who is Chinese, it’s very important you make a good first impression with the parents!
