Don’t do these things in China.

china

 

While China has become more westernized, there are still some basic things you should and shouldn’t do while you’re there. These are just basics, but as long as you’re friendly and bring your best manners, you will get along fine and have a great time.  

 

Don’t be Late:

It can be seen as rude to be late. Always be on time or even a little early to meetings or dates.

 

Never Show Up Without a Gift   

If you’re meeting someone, it’s customary for both parties often exchange gifts.  For instance, if you’re meeting your fiancée’s family for the first time be aware that you’re expected to bring a gift.  Gifts are not usually opened until after you leave. If they do insist you open your gift, ask “Is it ok if I open it?”  

 

Special note: Don’t bring four gifts or clocks as gifts- the Chinese associate these with death and are considered unlucky.

 

Don’t Call People by Their First Names Only:

Unlike in the West, Chinese people don’t call each other by their first name. Let’s say a man is introduced to you as  “Lee Ming”.  You can safely address him as Mr. Lee not Mr. Ming, because the family name comes first.  As an example  Joe Smith is known as Smith Joe. This will be a little different if you’ve already got a close relationship with them, but let them say so first.

 

Avoid Public Displays of Affection:

Generally, public displays of affection (PDAs) are frowned upon.  Hand holding is becoming acceptable but play it by ear and ask if it’s ok.  Your girlfriend or fiancée will appreciate the gesture.

 

Never let someone else pay the Bill without saying, “No, please let me.”

Let’s say you go out to a meal in China. It’s time to pay for the meal and your dining companion says, “I’ve got the bill.”  It’s considered good manners to argue and fight for the right to pay the bill. Showing eagerness to pay the bill is just good manners. Be willing to go back and  forth a few times with the “No, let me” before it’s settled.

 

Don’t Take The First  “No Thank You”  Literally

People in China will almost always automatically refuse things like having a drink or going out for food automatically, even if they are really hungry or thirsty.   In China a  good guest is supposed to refuse at least once, so you as a good host should always offer at least two or three times.

Never Accept Food, Drinks , or Gifts Without Refusing a Couple Times.

Likewise, don’t immediately accept anything offered.  Chinese people will expect you as a guest to refuse at least once.

Don’t Brag

 

Chinese people are humble and polite. Let’s say have dinner and give your host a compliment like “That was the best dinner ever!” Your host will say, “No, that was really bad.”  They’re not being rude, just humble and polite.

 

So be humble too. Keeping the  boasting to a minimum will help keep things from getting awkward. Be modest about yourself: if someone pays you a compliment , be humble and say something like “No, not at all” or “I’m not good at it, but thank you for saying so.”

 

We hope this brief guide comes in handy, especially if you’re going to China to visit a Fiancee or girlfriend (or even meeting her family!).

The Insider’s Guide to a Winning International Online Dating Profile

insidersguide

 

Creating an online dating profile can be a scary prospect. While the idea of long distance dating and dating Asian women may sound exciting, it’s a virtual guarantee that you’ll be destined for failure if you don’t spend some time upfront on this important task.

You may be the greatest guy in the world and have a lot to offer, but online dating requires that you put your strengths in writing and stand out from the crowd. Sounds suspiciously like a job interview, doesn’t it? While there are similarities, this is so much more fun if you do it right! Consider these key profile elements as you get started:

Grab ‘Em Fast!

One of the first things that people are going to see is the first line in your profile. It would be a good idea to spend some time making this distinctive and intriguing. Some people like to use song lyrics for headlines while others throw out a bit of humor. Whichever way you choose to go with it, keep it clean and non-controversial and you should be just fine.

Details Please

It should come as no surprise that the profiles that attract the most attention are the most well-written ones. This doesn’t mean that you need to be a professional writer or that you should hire one to excel here.

What you will need to do is set yourself apart from the “I like music and I love to laugh” crowd. While it’s ok to share that you enjoy a good time, provide specific examples of hobbies or activities that you appreciate so that readers can get a better sense of who you are.  For example, try “I like jazz music and eating Thai food”. You get the idea.

When writing your profile, be clear about your objectives and avoid any impulse to either be dishonest or negative in any way. Tell the ladies what you want! “I want to meet a nice woman for romance and love.”

A Picture is Worth…

Well, it’s worth a lot! To begin with, having some good images on your profile is worth not having your profile automatically excluded from searches as many women simply won’t even glimpse a profile that that doesn’t have a picture. As a general rule, posting photos will your profile will get you ten times as many responses as a profile without them! As your photos could be one of the most important elements of your dating profile, here are few tips to make sure you’re on the right track:

  •         For your main profile photo, choose a picture of just you, so there is no guesswork involved.

 

  •         Avoid using your computer’s webcam for photos as these generally turn out pretty dreadful.

 

  •         Post images that show your friendly side, with a normal and easy smile.

 

  •         Include at least two photos and preferably four or more.

 

  •         It’s not considered a good idea to post pictures of yourself with the opposite sex, even if is your sister! Many women find this a turn off and it can be very confusing. More confusion leads to less responses.

There is plenty of conflicting advice about international online dating that can make things confusing for someone new. While the stigma of long distance dating has virtually disappeared, if you want to meet Asian women online, you’ll need to start by working on your profile. If you use the pointers we’ve given you here, you will stand out from the crowd and have the experience you desire. That’s a promise!

Delays Expected For United States Passports

passport
 If you’re plan on traveling internationally this year to see your Cherry Blossoms sweetheart and you need a passport, make sure to start  well in advance of your trip. The reason? There are expected to be a bunch of people renewing their passports this year.

This year (2016) is the 10 year anniversary of the initiative which requires American citizens to have a passports for traveling to Mexico and the Caribbean.

Since there were a large number of passports issued 10 years ago, these passports will need to be renewed this year. This could mean delays for you if you are renewing your passport or planning to get a new passport. Even under normal circumstances it can take a couple of months to get your passport! So be sure to plan ahead!

If you already have a passport make sure it is valid for the dates you expect to travel. Some countries will require your passport to be valid for six months after travel and you may also be required to have a visa for certain countries, so be sure to check with the US State Department before you book your flight: https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/visit.html

If you’re looking to renew your passport or getting a new one, you can find passport applications at your local US Post Office. You can also take your official passport photos there, too!

Need a passport in a hurry? Expedited services ARE available and you may be able to get it as quickly as three weeks.  For more information, go to the official US Department of State website at: https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/passports.html  

EDIT 04/07/2017- 2016 may be over, but if you’re looking for a US Passport, please go check out the Travel.State.Gov for information.

Top Asian Dating Misconceptions

The Top Misconceptions About Dating Asian Women

 

While the idea of dating Asian women is appealing to many men, some just approach the entire enterprise from the wrong perspective. Perhaps it’s a lifetime of being exposed to stereotypes of Asian women in Western movies or other popular culture that forms our beliefs. Regardless, there are many false ideas about Asian dating that are not going to serve your best interests. Here are the top misconceptions about Asian women that could be holding you back.

All Asian Women Are the Same

To lump all Asian women into one class and expect them to be the same is naivety at its best. We don’t expect that Italian women will be the same as German women, or even that someone from California will behave like someone from Wisconsin. All Asian women are not the same. Consider this: Asia includes 51 different countries and a total population of 4.3 billion people. China alone is made up of 23 separate provinces (and 11 other divisions), with as many as 292 languages spoken in the country. These are diverse cultures with very different people and to lump them all together would be a mistake.

 

Asian Women Are All Submissive

If you are solely interested in Asian dating because you believe that all Asian women are submissive, you may be in for an awakening. Long-standing stereotypes lead Western men to think that the typical Asian woman can be found trailing her man by several paces with her head bowed. While you may be able to find your dream subservient mate if you look long enough, this isn’t today’s reality. Filipina women are known to be intensely loyal as well as headstrong. In China, Shanghainese women are more dominant. Finally, there is a culture in the Yunnan Province in Western China in which the male can be kicked out of the home at any time, and often is at the whim of the female. This isn’t the norm, as what you are more likely to find are polite women who lack some of the drama that Western women tend to exude. Takeaway? Don’t assume anything with regards to Asian women and treat each one as an individual worthy of respect.

 

All Asian Women Want a Western Man

While Western men are attractive to many Asian women for a variety of reasons, this isn’t universal. A Western man can’t just assume that any Asian woman he runs across is going to fall at his feet. Many Asian women today have come to realize that the grass may not be greener on the other side of the fence. When it comes to money, security is just as important to women in other cultures as it is to yours, so wanting someone who can provide this isn’t a race issue. Even if a majority of Asian women don’t want anything to do with Western men, let’s still do the math. Remember those 4.3 billion people in Asia? If just 25% of the females desired a Western man, you’d have a pool of over a half a billion women as potential mates. Those aren’t bad odds.

 

Online Asian dating offers willing singles an opportunity to connect and have fun. Your best approach is to ditch the misconceptions about Asian women and simply approach your Cherry Blossoms experience as the adventure it was meant to be.
