In recent years, blind Chinese dating has become quite a phenomenon. Why is this the case?
According to a survey conducted by Chinanews Life Channel, a driving force behind all this blind dating is the post-90s generation. This spot used to be held by the post-80s generation, but those individuals have been less involved lately, perhaps due to age or possibly even settling down and getting married.
The surge in blind Chinese dating by the post-90s generation might actually be due to their age.
In China, the first marriage of men at age 25 or older (age 23 or older for women) is considered to be a “late’” marriage. If you do the math, you’ll see that those born in 1990 will be turning 25 very soon, which means that they will be considered “late” if they are not already married.
Therefore, the blind dating rush is inspired by the Chinese culture, and parents also play a role. Some university graduates who return home might come back to a bedroom furnished with a double bed instead of the twin bed they left behind. Subtle hints and actions can speak very loudly.
When it comes to blind dating, many modern Chinese singles prefer traditional blind dating rather than blind dating services or marriage agencies, which have become popular in recent years. However, when it comes to seeking out love, online dating services still prove very popular.
