Dating Asian women at the Hungry Ghost Festival

If you are interested in dating Asian women, it is a good idea to learn as much about their culture as possible.  This shows that you are interested in their heritage and want to learn more about them.  Part of this process might actually involve a trip to China.

If you are planning to travel to China in August, you might be interested in attending the Hungry Ghost Festival, which is scheduled to commence on August 10th.  This festival is an age-old custom that pays tribute to dead people and their ghosts and is the most important celebration to take place during Hungry Ghost month.

Every year, on the 15th day of the seventh lunar month – usually July or August – people throughout China celebrate the Hungry Ghost Festival.  The primary focus is to celebrate and worship ancestors.  Asian women and men perform special ceremonies such as burning incense, placing the family’s ancestral tablets on a table, and preparing special meals all to avoid the wrath of hungry ghosts.  Food is left for the ghosts, who might be hungry after wandering the land since the beginning of the month.

Although it is always nice to honor the dead, the Hungry Ghost Festival has a pretty horrifying background and happened to be the scariest month of the year for thousands of years.  Legend says that the ghosts of Chinese ancestors are let out of Hell for the month and they are in search of weird entertainment.  Many Chinese avoid going swimming or being outside alone at night in fear of enemy ghosts.

The art of Chinese etiquette and dating Asian women

If you want to make a good impression on Asian women you can’t just rely on your native good manners.  The rules of polite behavior in Chinese society can be very different.  What’s more, if you date Asian women with a view to marriage, you will also need to impress their parents, so understanding etiquette is doubly important.

Getting to know people

One of the reasons that, for Asian women, online dating holds so much appeal, is that it is generally considered impolite to introduce yourself to somebody directly.  In person, a mutual acquaintance will usually do this for you.  Online, if you take an interest in one of the beautiful women on our site, you can send a message through us so that, effectively, we can make the introduction.  If you travel to China to meet a woman you have fallen for, one of our staff members will accompany you to introduce you in person.

There is a formal, traditional order for group introductions that takes account of social status, seniority and gender.  This means introductions can sometimes take a while.  It’s important to be patient during this process and wait for your turn.

Managing emotions

There is a stereotype in the West that paints Chinese people as distant and mysterious.  This stems largely from a social code that says it’s polite to avoid displaying emotion in public.  Most importantly, if you want to be respected, you must never lose your temper.  If you find yourself disagreeing with someone, ask that person to help you understand.  Never directly accuse someone of making a mistake or being wrong.

If you find yourself in a difficult situation, smiling can almost always get you out of it.  If you date with Asian women online you may find that sometimes they start arguments to see how far they can push you.  This is generally intended as playful behavior and it’s often accompanied by smiley face icons or smiling photographs that should make it clear what’s really going on.  Flattering a woman at this time can really make her like you.

Giving gifts

The concept of reciprocity is really important in Chinese etiquette.  Although it doesn’t apply when you are courting – you should flatter Asian women by paying for everything when you go out together and sending gifts and flowers when apart.  If you meet your Chinese sweetheart’s parents you will be expected to buy them gifts.  French red wine is particularly popular with men, while women love handcrafted items like scarves or jewelry.  You can also expect to receive gifts from them, and it’s important to respond graciously as if these have precisely equal value to you, no matter what they are.

Polite behavior for couples

No matter how emotional you may feel when you meet with Asian women you have been dating online for the first time, it’s important to show polite restraint.  Chinese couples do not kiss in public.  If things go well, she may be willing to hold your hand.  If she kisses you discreetly after your first date, you will know that things are going very well indeed.

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!

Getting used to using Asian women dating sites

If you think things have been moving too slowly in your dating life, you might consider using Asian women dating sites to meet your soul mate.  However, there are a few drawbacks to using such sites, one of which is the time it takes to strike up and maintain a relationship.

So, why is time such a drawback when using Asian women dating sites?

For many individuals, the main form of communication is through texting and online chatting, which is very time-consuming and limited in the amount of emotions you can express.  The distance can make it hard to get a full understanding of who that person is on the other end of the chat.  However, for those who really stick to it, online dating can be a very rewarding experience.

Here’s why using an online dating site can be so wonderful:

  • You can meet people who think like you do. If you want to date a Chinese woman who shares your interests, using an online dating site can really help expedite things even if you think it might move slowly.
  • You can find common ground quickly.  The online dating site will allow you to take the guesswork out of the whole dating process.  You’ll be able to hook up and communicate with women who share your thoughts and interests based on their profile.
  • Online dating allows you to really get to know someone.  Because you will be communicating in writing for much of the time, you are likely to find out more about how the other person is feeling – perhaps even more so than if you were having a verbal conversation.
  • There is no need to be nervous.  When dating online, it’s much easier to meet and talk to other people, most likely because those first interactions are just online.  This means you can be yourself and relax more.
