Cultural dating practices

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.

This may be self-explanatory, but in most modern societies this isn’t really acceptable (at least butter 'em up and take them on a few dates before you put a bag over their head).

However, in traditional Roma culture, the guys quite literally bag the girl.

I've always had a severe case of wanderlust, longing to backpack across Europe, walk the beaches of Santorini or wander down the paths of Venice.

If their child’s significant other doesn’t meet with the parents’ approval, continuing the relationship will be very difficult.

My grandmother once told me, “When you're looking for a life partner, it's best to date someone who's Jewish.”Why?

“Because it's one less thing to fight about.”The waters of romance can be rough, and avoiding the iceberg of “What religion will we raise our children as? As much as I love my wild and crazy grandmother, I never listened to this specific piece of wisdom.

All of the men I've ever dated have been from different cultures.

Whether they were Irish, Italian or Greek, they've always been of a different ethnicity or culture than my own.
