So we’ve gotten a few questions lately about dating in China.It’s an interesting topic that hits on a lot of key cultural touchpoints, so I want to take a few minutes to talk about this.

While you could simply go out and meet people the old fashioned way, technology has made it so much easier to meet people in close proximity to you, with similar interests too.

There are plenty of dating apps available in China to help you connect with others.

Take these tips to heart and do a little research into dating culture and etiquette of the region where you’re living.

Whether you’re out to meet someone the old fashioned way, or have already downloaded Tantan or Momo, happy dating while you are in China.

You’ll often hear people say that cultural differences are overstated or not as much of a factor as they used to be, and while there is some validity to that, cultural differences are nothing to scoff at – they do most definitely exist.

One of the primary issues here is that for Chinese women, there is a much stronger emphasis on getting married early.

Tantan and Momo are two of the most popular dating apps you can try. Tantan Tantan is known as the Chinese Tinder, since it uses the same ‘swipe left or right’ feature.

This means the app will be easy to use and navigate if you’re already a Tinder user.

Instead of casual dating, people are usually set up by mutual acquaintance or meet within a group setting.
