Dating in the

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.

For a lot of Chinese people, serious dating starts after they’ve finished school.

The first time Manning considered transitioning was at 19 while living with an aunt in Maryland.

Why choose Elite Singles over other online dating platforms?

Most of our members are aged between 30-55 and are educated, ambitious and dynamic singles committed to the search for a serious relationship.

Maybe the quality of a night out was improved by people being more selective? Now as it turns out, the hard-working staff here at Spoiler Alerts is in the generation above Silver. And Silver is absolutely correct, those were the days of men.

Maybe people were more cautious about making plans, knowing they’d really have to keep them? It’s baffling, and also I feel like we need to preserve these stories for generations to come.
