Asian vs. Oriental: Chinese girls want guys to know the difference

Did you know that there is a difference between “Asian” and “oriental” when it comes to describing Chinese girls?

Oriental building

For centuries, Europeans have used the word “oriental” when referring to anything or anyone from the lands to the east of Europe, primarily Southeast Asia. In recent times, however, the term “oriental” has become quite controversial. Today, it has become more politically correct to refer to people from this region as “Asian”, while “oriental” has become almost derogatory.

Let’s take a closer look…

If you consider etymology, the word “orient” means “to the east” or “the land of the rising sun.” It has a mysterious air to it. As the usage of the word progressed and time went on, it became a loaded word with many bad connotations and is now considered very Eurocentric. However, just because someone wants to be politically correct doesn’t mean they can’t use the word “oriental” as long as they use the term carefully.

A good rule of thumb is to refer to people from the area as Asian and things like rugs and carpets as oriental. Keeping this in mind could prevent you from possibly offending someone.

This little tidbit of knowledge should help your encounters with Chinese girls be a little more comfortable. You won’t have to worry about the correct nomenclature, so you’ll be able to spend more time enjoying the experience. Online dating, after all, is nerve-wracking enough as it is!

Dating tips for newly divorced Asian singles

Let’s face it: the end of a romantic relationship can be scary and confusing. This is why online dating can be a great transition into the world of dating for newly divorced Asian singles.

Dating

For many people, one of the scariest aspects of getting a divorce is the prospect of dating again.  The exclusive commitments, the promises, and the emotional ties to that one person are no longer there.  Is it liberating?  Is it confusing?  Is it exciting?  The answer to all three questions is yes.

How do you know when it’s time to start dating after the end of a relationship?  Here are some tips to see if you’re ready to meet some Asian singles yet:

  • Have you grieved enough yet?  This is an important question.  Where there is an attachment and a loss, there will be grief.  You need to grieve in order to heal from the end of the marriage.  For some, the grieving process takes a while.  Process your grief, sadness, rage, and anger so that you can move on to bigger and better things.
  • Do you know who you are without your spouse?  Many times, spouses seem to lose themselves in their partners.  After a marriage, it might be hard to recognize who you are.  Get to know yourself before getting back into the dating game.
  • Do you know how to be in a relationship?  This may seem like a silly question, but it is a valid one.  Remember, in order to have a healthy and enduring romance, it takes three:  you, me, and we.  All aspects should be nurtured in order to have a successful relationship.

If you’ve just recently been divorced, take your time when it comes to dating.  There are no rules saying that you must be in a relationship, and bear this in mind if you meet someone online who has also just been divorced.  Take it slow!

Selecting your profile name for an online Asian dating site

You’ve decided to join an online Asian dating site.  You’re bound to connect with someone you’ll want to pursue a little romance with in no time.  However, before you get started, you will need to choose your profile name.

For some people, selecting a dating profile name can be a real challenge because it really is one of the first things a potential partner will see.  We all know that first impressions really do count.  While it is tempting to choose any random name, you should put some thought into it or you might be sorry later on.

First and foremost, keep safety in mind when choosing your profile name for an online Asian dating site.  It is never a good idea to use any part of your real name simply because it isn’t safe.  Consider how much online fraud goes on and be smart about the choice.

Another thing to remember is to keep it simple.  People will often ask you how you came up with your dating profile name, so be prepared to answer.  You want your name to be recognizable and memorable, so stay away from names that are too complex or obscure.  Adding too many numbers to your name can also make it more difficult to remember.

If you aren’t sure what you want to use for a profile name, think about your interests.  For example, if you are really into astrology, why not incorporate your zodiac sign into the name?  Remember, your profile name should have a natural connection to you, so just go with what seems right.

One last word of advice: avoid using a sexy or offensive profile name.  This usually backfires and could attract the wrong types of people or even get you banned from the site.

Taking Asian single ladies to the Dalian Beer Festival

Dating Asian single ladies can be a lot of fun, especially when you get to travel to China and experience their culture.  China is famous for its delicious cuisine, but festivals and celebrations are another big part of Chinese culture.

Dalia

Chinese people generally enjoy celebrations and put a lot of effort into making them memorable.  Throughout the year, there are many different festivals ranging from those focusing on technology and tea to those focusing on watermelons and dragons.

The Dalian Beer Festival is one such celebration. It is held in the city of Dalian each year.  This year, it will take place from July 24th through August 4th.  The festival is a great place to meet Asian single ladies or to take that someone special you’ve been dating online.

The 30-minute opening ceremony will start at 7:30 on July 28th at the Huabiao Center Stage in Xinghai Square.  The ceremony includes a stage performance of a ceremonial beer cask opening along with a festival flag raising, singing, and fireworks.  About 300,000 tourists will join locals in attending the festival’s opening activities.

The festival offers plenty of exhibitions by beer manufacturers from all over the world, a beer disco, a beer-drinking contest, a photography contest, a beer culture exhibit, and beer discussion panels.

If you happen to love beer and are planning on traveling to China at the end of July, the Dalian Beer Festival will really float your boat!
