Dating customs in sweden
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.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.For a lot of Chinese people, serious dating starts after they’ve finished school.More so than Westerners, many Chinese view dating as a pragmatic affair.NOTICE MARCH 20th, 2010: This post is now CLOSED for comments. But don’t fret, there is a NEW POST to make comments.
The law, which has tenets of humility, fosters the goal of equal partnerships in dating.Now I know I have only been in Sweden a couple days (and will hopefully return permanently) but from reading various blogs and talking to Swedish girls, the dating system here is screwed up and really confusing. First, I have to admit the American system is not good. 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.
The dating culture in Norway reflects, in many ways, the culture of other developed European countries and the United States.
