Asian dating? Advice on posting better pictures

If you’re into Asian dating, you will probably need to make an online dating profile, which will inevitably include lots of pictures.  You don’t have to be a professional photographer – or pay one – to get the best pictures up.
We’ve put together some quick tips that will make your photos seem a lot better than the competition.

Dating

  • Pay attention to the lighting.  If the lighting isn’t quite right, you’re going to look a little weird.  You could also make yourself look tired in the wrong sort of light.  Remember, indirect lighting is better than harsh sunlight. You should also avoid fluorescent bulbs.
  • Stay away from the mirror.  A selfie taken in the bathroom mirror might very well be one of the most unappealing photos, so keep it off your Asian dating profile.  Get someone else to take the picture.
  • Use a flattering angle.  If you aim the picture directly at your face at eye level, you might distort your features.  Avoid profile shots as well.  Always shoot from an angle, preferably from above.
  • Take off the hat.  Sure, you might look super cute in that baseball cap, but don’t wear it for your picture.  You can include one picture with your favorite hat, but don’t make a habit of it!  Remember, never use a hat to cover up the fact that you might have a receding hairline.
  • Smile pretty.  You don’t have to exclaim “Cheese!” to take a nice picture, but you do want a nice smile.  The goal is to appear casual and upbeat, which makes you more appealing to members of the opposite sex.

Good luck with your pictures.

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.

Finding the top Chinese dating sites

Online dating is often only slightly less confusing than dating in person for many guys, which means that the topic of finding the top Chinese dating sites often comes up.

Internet dating

While many of the top Chinese dating sites are pretty straightforward in their goals – allowing people to meet and start a relationship – their approaches vary greatly.  This means that before you pick a site, you need to figure out what your dating style is in order to determine which of the many Chinese dating sites are going to work best for you.

Ask yourself some of these questions to get started:

  • Am I an introvert or an extrovert?
  • Do I prefer to get to know people online or in person?
  • How much work do I really want to put into meeting someone?
  • How am I at engaging with new people?  Am I reserved or outgoing?
  • Do I want casual dating or something more serious?

Remember, there isn’t a right or wrong answer to any of the questions above.  The truth is, many of those questions actually overlap.  Nonetheless, knowing yourself well will only help you in figuring out which Chinese dating site you’ll want to join.

If you’re considering the world of online dating, you might find it surprising that lots of people want to actually go on dates rather than fill out forms on their computer, while others like the organized, well-thought out procedures of dating sites.  It is entirely up to you!

Chinese girls: Visiting China? Fun facts!

If you think Chinese girls are beautiful and you already have an online dating profile, you might be thinking about taking a trip to China one day.  This isn’t so strange; if you meet someone online and start feeling strongly about her, you will probably want to visit her in her home country at some point.

As a Westerner, however, there are some things you probably don’t know about China.  Before going to any foreign country, it is a good idea to learn a little bit about appropriate behavior.

What not to do:

  • DON’T stick your chopsticks straight up in your rice.  This is considered extremely rude and is associated with funerals.
  • DON’T expect to eat dog locally.  According to CNN, the dog consumption rate has actually declined in recent years.
  • DON’T assume everyone in China speaks Chinese.  The Chinese language isn’t really a single language; it is actually composed of many dialects, the most common of which are Cantonese and Mandarin.
  • DON’T be afraid to use the public squat toilets.  They are actually more sanitary than traditional toilets in the West.  Just don’t forget to bring your own toilet paper!

What to do:

  • If you are presented with a gift, DO politely refuse it several times before accepting.  Do the same thing with compliments.
  • DO feel free to breathe in Beijing.  The air is still polluted, but it isn’t quite as bad as you might think.
  • DO ask a local how to access blocked websites.  Most Chinese people actually use VPNs (virtual private networks) for their internet surfing.
  • DO feel free to burp in public.  It’s not really rude in China!  Staring is also perfectly acceptable there.

If you are getting ready to head to China to meet some beautiful Chinese girls, keep these light-hearted but important tips in mind!
