I've started a dating wiki to braindump my experiences.
One novel thing I've done is to attend a Chinese "dating party":
http://wiki.asianloveconnections.com/do ... ng_parties
There are a few photos on there. I only had my camera phone so they're not that great. It was also about 150C with 200% humidity that day and a real struggle to do anything.
Maybe the HA'ers living in China can gatecrash some more dating parties and report back their findings .
Anyway, the event was FREE, so it was a good alternative to one of those AFA romance tours .
Quote from your wiki: "The catch? They're not aimed at foreigners seeking Chinese brides. They're intended for the local population to find Chinese partners. So to attend one you'll have to do a lot of groundwork.
Having said this, you might find international parties in larger Asian cities that are aimed at intercultural marriages. These are quite common in Tokyo, Japan. They're arranged as international evenings and the dating aspects are downplayed, so as to not make it so obvious that the primary objective of the evening is for unmarried Japanese women to find foreign boyfriends.
Back to China, and the best way to find out about these parties is to find a Chinese bff (best female friend) who is self-confident, single, desperate to get married, and who isn't interested in marrying you. Then set her to work searching for events that you might be able to attend. She'll need all her self-confidence to persuade the organisers to let in a foreigner."
Interesting, that quote from your wiki really shows how different our cultures are. China is for Han Chinese, Japan is for Japanese, Korea is for Koreans, foreigners are excluded except as a show. Latent systemic permanent racism is found in those xenophobic countries. People can't move there and become an equal part of society. That is one of many reasons those countries are doomed. Too bad luv those sexy lil asian women.
Dating sites get blocked quite regularly by wifi systems.
And as for foreigners not being welcomed at dating parties - it's just because there are so few foreigners in China that so many things just aren't set up for them.
And why should there be foreigners in China? Immigrants have caused huge problems in my own life. My last job was taken by a foreigner, and now I can't find anywhere to live due to a huge influx of foreigners seeking to work in my own country.
I've done pretty well in life though but for younger natives of my country things are far worse - they're priced out of accommodation AND have their wages held down by an army of minimum wage immigrants.
3 different points, usually people only make 1 of these points.
good summary of why Americans should be morally opposed to immigration, if they really care about average people as opposed to the investor class.
