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.
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.
Of course, these are all just generalizations, and they don’t apply to all Chinese people.
Buy yourself a drink to loosen up, or buy a drink for a potential date 😉 As space is limited, RSVP is required ahead of time.
Many Chinese couples do not share the Western expectation that two people dating will maintain their own separate social lives and friend circles.
Chinese couples also sometimes refer to each other as “husband” (老公) and “wife” (老婆) even when they’re not actually married—another indicator of the serious implications dating in China.
Attitudes toward sex are changing, especially in more cosmopolitan cities like Beijing and Shanghai, but in general, many Chinese women see sex as a sign that a relationship is headed towards marriage.
Additionally, many Chinese men say they would prefer to marry a woman who hasn’t had premarital sex.
To give you an even better experience this year, there is a cover charge of $10 which will include complimentary food platters.
