Speed dating in asia
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.
It’s not always about finding love so much as it is about finding a potential marriage partner who fits with one’s own ideals.
For example, although many men get married without a house and a car, Chinese women will often say that they’re looking for these things because that’s the sort of person who probably has a stable career and will be able to provide for her and their future children in the long-term. As one contestant on China’s most popular dating show put it, "I’d rather cry in a BMW than laugh on a bicycle." Every parent is different, of course, but in general Chinese parents expect to be more involved in their children’s relationships.

Chinese young people often feel like they don’t have the time to “play the field” that their Western counterparts are afforded by society.
For a lot of Chinese people, serious dating starts after they’ve finished school.
More so than Westerners, many Chinese view dating as a pragmatic affair.
That’s why if you’re dating someone who is Chinese, it’s very important you make a good first impression with the parents!
In general, sex before marriage in China is less common and considered more serious than it is in many Western cultures.
