Anyway, all of this means that in China itself, if you're dating someone seriously, marriage is at least on the table.
The man is generally supposed to handle all the decision making in Chinese dating, and some girls take this very seriously. These are some of the same activities successful job seekers put into play. You generally have to meet a lot of people before you find the right fit for a relationship. Pick up an etiquette handbook if you are unsure of what constitutes good manners. Show interest but do not be too available or easy (desperate). Be careful what you confess on your first date/meeting/interview. Once I asked a girl what she wanted to do for the date and she just never responded!It’s also commonplace to bring a friend along, but not for a double date – it’s more like a chaperon, buffer or safety net.
