China most popular dating show
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.
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.
Recently, an ordinary looking businessman from Wenzhou who stood 160 cm tall appeared on the stage of Wei Ai Xiang Qian Chong.
All the female contestants quickly snubbed him, literally turning their heads away.
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.
“I believe the majority of people respect honesty and true love although there are many people who worship money in reality,” says a Sohu user from Guiyang.
“I'd rather be sitting inside a BMW and crying than sitting on a bicycle and smiling,” says Beijing girl Ma Nuo on the stage of China's most popular reality dating TV show, Fecheng Wurao (非诚勿扰, “If You Are the One”).
Since it first aired across China, Feicheng Wurao, which is produced by Jiangsu Satellite TV, one of China's regional commercial TV stations, has become one of the most popular shows in China.
Problem is, to many it seems like these Chinese reality dating shows might be more about money than love.
Although the tight connection between love and money is not new (in China or anywhere else in the world), the public nature of the bold statements and actions of the xiang qin (相亲, reality dating shows) contestants is getting people across China talking.
For a lot of Chinese people, serious dating starts after they’ve finished school.
