Asian dating online safety tips

Using an Asian dating site online can be a fun and fulfilling way to spend your time.  If you meet the right person, it can even be a life-changing activity.

However, it is important to take a few precautions to ensure not only your safety but also your success in online dating.  To get started, here are some great online safety tips you should know.

Is your computer secure?

Before joining an online dating site, you need to make sure that your computer is secure.  This means enabling firewalls, installing antivirus protection, and making sure you don’t have any spyware.

Do you have a strong password?

Having a strong password is essential; so don’t select an obvious word or phrase.  This means avoiding things like your name, birthday, and other obvious words.  A password that is easily guessed leaves you at high risk of identity theft.  It is a good idea to include capital and lower-case letters, numbers, and special characters in each password.

Have you set up a separate email account for online dating?

You can never be too safe, so set up a separate email account for your online dating profile.  Keeping this separate from your personal and work email accounts will make it easier for you to track your online dating communications and isolate any unwanted messages.

Is this site reputable?

Not every Asian dating site online is created equal, which is why it is important that you only join a reputable one.  The best-rated dating sites offer you additional safety and security.  Do a little research before signing up.

Just remember, once you’ve joined an online dating site, you need to keep your details secure at all times.  Never give your personal information to anyone – even if they seem wonderful – right away.  Always take the time to build up the communication before sharing anything too personal or private.

Asian women and hand shaking

When dating Asian women comes to mind, most people typically do not think about shaking hands.  However, hand shaking is a sort of “silent language” that can speak very loudly in many Asian cultures, especially in China.

Shaking hands is a very popular way of greeting people all over the world, but it is more of an art form in China.  In China, Asian women and men use the handshake to say hello and goodbye, express congratulations and encouragement, and as a way to say “thanks”.

When it comes to shaking hands in China, here are some simple rules you should follow:

  • The elder or senior person, teacher, female, married, or superior individual should offer his or her hand initially.
  • When shaking hands with more than one person, do your best to shake hands in order of importance, but start with those closest to you.  For example, shake hands from senior to junior or nearest to farthest.
  • When a host is greeting a guest, he or she should offer the handshake first as a show of welcome, but guests should shake hands first when leaving.
  • If a hand is offered, regardless of status, it is courteous to shake hands unreservedly.

With all these rules, you might be wondering if there is also a proper way to shake hands. The answer is yes!  Here are some tips:

  • Don’t shake hands too quickly or for too long; three to five seconds is best.
  • Hand shaking should be simple and light, so don’t overexert.
  • Pay attention when you shake hands.
  • Don’t use your left hand to shake hands.
  • Take off sunglasses, gloves, and hats before shaking hands.
  • Don’t have your other hand in your pocket when shaking hands.
  • Unless you are disabled, do not shake hands while sitting down.
  • Don’t refuse to shake hands!

Chinese girls and dating agents

We’re proud to be among the top Asian dating websites in China, but sometimes people ask us why sites like ours exist at all.  Why don’t Chinese girls who are interested in Western men choose to meet them more directly?  The reasons are manifold and are rooted in Chinese tradition.

The historical role of the matchmaker

Centuries before there were Asian dating sites online, weddings in China used to be arranged through matchmakers.  At the time of the Zhou dynasty there was an official state matchmaker responsible for overseeing marriages throughout the empire.  Later, the role became a respected profession.  Rather than focusing on individuals, matchmakers brought together families to see if they were socially compatible.  The prospective groom’s family would be expected to be wealthier and have a higher social status, while the bride’s would often be chosen on the basis of literary or artistic achievement.  If the families got along, the young people would then be introduced and a marriage might go ahead.

Matchmakers also helped to arrange introductions for widows and widowers.  In this situation they would sometimes work with people who no longer had older relatives to approve their marriage.  The involvement of the matchmaker would help to make the arrangement socially respectable.

The changing role of the chaperone

Over time, Chinese families stopped using the services of matchmakers and began to arrange marriages directly.  Gradually, young people gained more freedom to say yes or no to proposed engagements, and prospective partners started to be suggested by friends as well as parents.  Rather than being supervised by matchmakers, dates began to be chaperoned by family friends.  Much Asian dating still incorporates this tradition, but increasingly the role of the chaperone is played by a group of friends of the same age – or by an agency.

Online dating agencies

When they are hoping to meet Western men, the ideal solution for Chinese girls is to find reliable Asian dating sites.  This means that they can get to know the men who like them in a supervised environment, much like a traditional introduction by a matchmaker.  Just like a matchmaker, a good agency will ensure that they are safe and that the men they meet are genuine, with good intentions.

In keeping with Chinese tradition, we make it easy for you to get to know Chinese girls online by sending her love notes and gifts.  These will show her that you’re serious before the two of you decide whether or not to take the next step and meet up in person.

Chaperoned dates in China

If you and the Chinese woman you’re romancing do decide to meet, we can arrange to chaperone your first date for you so she will feel confident that everything is proper and above board.  Rather than making things really formal, this will actually enable her to relax and have fun.  If you enjoy each other’s company and if she believes that you are serious in your intentions, she may agree to a second date with just the two of you; it could be the beginning of the happiest relationship of your life!

Asian dating at the Hong Kong Book Fair

Lots of men are initially interested in Asian dating because they think Chinese women are meek, subservient, and quiet, but they are quickly surprised when they find out the opposite is usually true.  The idea of the subservient Chinese woman is an overrated stereotype; the truth of the matter is that many of them are educated, assertive, and smart.

Hong Kong

Armed with this knowledge, you might find that the Hong Kong Book Fair is a great place for Asian dating.  If you are planning to travel to China in July, the book fair will be taking place from July 16th through the 22nd and is a great way for book lovers to spend their day.

Organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council every year, the Hong Kong Book Fair is intended to promote the local reading culture.  This year’s theme happens to be “Reading the World – Reading for a Better World.”

Attendees will get to explore new book exhibits, media products, reading and writing workshops, seminars, and panel sessions.  There will also be author autograph sessions as well as plenty of opportunities to buy books!

Asian dating isn’t just about flowers and dinner; it can be a highly intellectual experience when you meet the right person, which is why this book fair might very well be a great way to start off your trip.

The Hong Kong Book Fair will be held at the Hong Kong Convention Center and costs $25 HKD for adults.
