Dating

When picking a place to travel, these are some considerations: its popularity, wonderful women, panoramic environment, fabulous architectural design, good food, or cultural flavors. The list goes on.

Asia is the continent; China is the country and Dongguan is the city. Dongguan is a city full of grandeur, splendor, and life. This city is the very definition of cosmopolitan.

Home to over 8.2 million people, Dongguan is divided into 32 township-level division groups which are further divided into six district areas; each with their unique opportunities for exploring the history, the language, cuisine, and the culture of China.

Bordered by the provincial capital of Guangzhou to the north, Huizhou to the northeast, Shenzhen to the south, and the Pearl River to the west. It is a prefecture-level city in central Guangdong province, China.

It is also a major manufacturing hub, hosting a high level of technological infrastructural investment and the Chinese 4th largest export region.

Dongguan is home to major big tech companies like Samsung and Nokia. No wonder it is often said that one out of every six phones manufactured in the world is produced in Dongguan. The prevalent means of communication here is Mandarin, even though the local language is Cantonese. Dongguan is a city for the adventurer.


Dating Culture

Dating is a human social trait prevalent in every social sphere and space. Dating anywhere outside your home country or region, you are bound to notice cultural divergencies and experience cultural shock. This is not novel to Chinese dating too.

Depending on where you come from, Chinese culture is most probably different from what you are familiar with. Dating in Dongguan is very much possible. A world of possibilities awaits you here in Dongguan.

Whether you are in for the casual relationship, a one-night affair, or a long-term commitment, you are likely to have what you bargain for. To be on the front foot here, you should be abreast of how the dating culture works.

Like every other cosmopolitan city, there are common nuances of cultural imputations that characterize the uniqueness of dating trends. Dongguan being a typical cosmopolitan city is very much inclusive.

When visiting Dongguan, dating can be very fun and an interesting episode. The women in Dongguan are usually more conservative than liberal. The implication is that they are liberal enough to go out on a date with you but very reluctant and hesitant to engage in a sexual relationship with you.

Like every indigene of any country, they are equally attracted to or possesses a keen interest in foreigners. European and American countries are top of the list here, however, as an added advantage, you need to spend on them.

Unpopular as it may seem, one of the best ways to express your love and fondness towards them is by proving it with gifts. Chinese are obsessed with material objects and brand names.

One shocking experience you will find here is that men of this region find it despising to keep to one girlfriend. Thus, you will find that it is not a problem for the men to keep two to three girlfriends and the ladies are okay with it.

While it seems to be a major problem in western culture and some parts of Africa, where friends openly compete and go out with the same girl, in China especially Dongguan, the reverse is the case.

It is viewed as fun within this part of the globe and you will notice that the people are very much accepting of this notion. This is quite a surprising trend among people. Also, to note is that same-sex partners are permitted under the marriage law of The Peoples Republic of China.

Another exciting feature you will notice about these people of interest is that you will find couples going out in matching outfits. It’s one major and easier way to identify a couple in the city.

So, when you finally meet that person, don’t be too surprised if pretty soon you start going out on dates in matching outfits. If you ask me, I would say, it is a touch of romance. What better way to prove to the public that your Partner is already taken?

In Dongguan, long term and short-term commitment are possible but not without some hassles like social pressure and language barrier.

Here the pressure of not getting married whether earlier or not is very high and to top it, the pressure emanates from the family mostly. When one is not married at a due age, such a person is tagged a ‘leftover’.

The language barrier is a problem especially when you are a foreigner as indigents and residents of this region communicates more in Mandarin or Cantonese. Only very few speak English.

The possibility of a one-night stand is not ruled out. This is mostly offered by sex workers. However, prostitution is illegal in the country of China. Though not legalized, it is still carried out discreetly. This is not to say that you won’t find a decent girl that will rock that boat with you even though it seldom happens.


Women

It will be negating the law of attraction to say that a city as prosperous in almost all sectors of endeavor can not boast of beautiful and intelligent women.

Dongguan is a beautiful city full of beautiful women, both foreign and local. There is this similitude in their appearance especially between the locals and their counterparts from other Asian countries or cities like Hong Kong, South Korea, and the likes.

The looks of these women are stereotypical of other Chinese girls. They usually have a round face with a small nose. They have a white skin tone and the averagely almost the same height of (5’- 5.4). You rarely find them with large breasts or big bottoms. However, their petite figures have a different kind of appeal to it. If you are into Asian beauties, then Dongguan women won’t be any less worth going on a ride with.

Dongguan women are usually materialistic but fun to be with when you finally get to know them. These ladies when it comes to dating are usually the shy type. They are not religiously conservative but are trained and taught to maintain some social limits. These women take dating seriously.

Implicit in this, is the cultural influences and social pressure. This is why most of the women here go into a relationship with the intent that it ends in a lifelong commitment.


Chinese Girls (age 18 - 29)

Going into a relationship within the age bracket above is greatly encouraged in Dongguan. This is no wonder the pressure of getting married within this limit is high.

The Chinese culture allows for female education and this has resulted in the high level of literacy amongst the women hence it will come as no surprise if you find these ladies within the age range committed to their education or pursuing their career. This does not rule out the fact that these women of this age rank won’t be interested in dating or delving into a relationship.

In dating a local girl from this region, especially those within the age brackets, you should bear in mind that these ladies love their man to provide them their luxuries. So, to score points you should have this in mind. Learn to give them treats and buy them gifts. It is one way to show them you are interested in them.

The girls from Dongguan are very much interested in relationships as a result of social pressure from marriage, which is a major contributory factor. Also, as a way of avoiding being labeled a ‘Leftover women’ the urge to marry within this age limit is high.

If you want to date a girl within this age limit, you have to set your priority or intentions right as most ladies here who will be willing to go into a relationship would want to do so if they believe it will lead to a lifelong commitment or marriage.

Looking for casual relationships or a temporal affair or a one-night stand is possible though rare for these beauties of this age limit. However, there is a high likelihood that you will find girls of this age limit interested in temporal affairs or sexual gratifications. These, are usually sex workers. And no better place to find them than the saunas, bars, nightclubs, and hotels.

Public display of affection is culturally viewed as a taboo. In dating these younger generations, you should be observant as a public display of affection is dependent on the couples as there are times when emotions would run high.

Generally Chinese are conservatives, you would find out that there is an unusual mix of girls who are introverted and extroverted due to the exposure of western influence. This young generation recently is in love with pop culture. The implicating effect is that most extroverted ladies here would indulge in a public display of affection even up to its extreme such as public sexual advances and activities.

The attitude of ladies within this region and age limits is somewhat disappointing even though they show a keen interest in foreigners. This is not the case if you are a local. This is stemming from the reality that social culture and the language barrier is a problem.

The resultant effect is that having a go at your prospective lady will prove difficult though not impossible. Thus, you will have to put in a lot of work. Your approach to them should not be too direct and your intentions should be made clear. You should also include conversing with them in their local dialect and buying them gifts and objects.

If you are an older guy, it is an advantage as mothers love to give their daughters out to older men as it is believed they can care better for them. While for their sons, younger girls are preferred.


Chinese Women (age 30 - 45)

There are noticeably three different groups here -the ones who are married and considered as honoring their families, the ones who are yet to be married or rather single and are labeled leftover women and the ones who are divorced.

The married ones here would be interested in taking care of their families and pursuing their career or engaging in one form of work or the other especially factory work. Dating these are boundaries you shouldn’t compromise. Your best options are the remaining categories.

Generally, women within the age range should be married, however, there is the plausibility of a moderate range that are single (leftover women) and a rare few that are divorced.

These categories would have had their fill with the locals and as such their attendant keen interest in foreigners. These would readily want to mingle. It is important to mention that these ladies are usually well educated, smart, often established.

Coming after them, you need to make your intentions clear and known. This is because cultural imputations like social pressure to marry are not negligible. Also, asual relations or temporal sexual gratification is very much possible and a common occurrence among this age.

You should also take into cognizance that they take their sexual relationship or dating not openly but also discreetly. Worthy of note is that most of the ladies here who would readily want to mingle would often prefer the online dating platforms to create that connections.

There is a long list of dating sites and apps where you can find these women. One of such dating apps that provide the platforms for these divorced ladies and their single counterparts (never married) to indulge in sexual romps with a total stranger is the Tantan dating apps. Others include chinalovecupid, momo, jiayuan, and a lot more.


Chinese Ladies (age 45+)

Mostly the women in this category would have been married with a child or children. It is rare though to find women within this age limit who are single or divorced as the case may be. However, it is not impossible.

There are the social stigma and labeling as leftover women that are directly associated with the single ladies who are above age 27, there is also the stigma associated with the divorced as they are labeled as those who brought shame to the family.

These women would take any man who comes their way very seriously and would not be much interested in any relationship that will not culminate into marriage. So, if your intentions are sexual adventures, temporal companionship (casual dating), then these ladies are off your list.

The most preferred place to meet them is at dating platforms or sites. Discreetness is the word when dealing with this group. However, they may be easily open to foreigners.


Foreign Girls (tourists, expats, students, etc.)

Beautiful and magnificent as the city is, booming with and lots of technological operations, economic prosperity and a stabilized government creating that atmosphere of peace, beauty, and wellness, Dongguan has become a destination for immigrants. Thus, there is the expectant influx of foreigners, most of whom are expatriates. Finding them will be a bit difficult depending on your location in the city.

If you do find them and would want to share a tinge of intimacy or a serious relationship, you will agree with me that these ladies are educated and are fluent in the English language, unlike the locals. The language hurdle is broken in this case. These are liberal and open-minded. So, the idea of a short-term dating, flings, or a long-term commitment, is very much possible. You should make your intentions known to avoid one party being left disappointed and heartbroken.


Sex

Prevalent before now, Dongguan was nicknamed the Eastern Amsterdam. This is because the sex culture in Amsterdam is reflecting in Dongguan. This further means that is that sex was a rampant trading commodity in Dongguan.

Though the government made a major clamp down on the perpetrators of this activity, it is safe to say that sex transaction or mutual or consensual sex involvement is still practiced. If you want to ride that boat of sexual ecstasy and escapades with the local girls, the possibility is not rare.

However, finding a decent girl to have this mutual sexual romp with, is difficult and rare. Finding sex in this city is easy. Most girls who may indulge in such acts are usually sex workers or prostitute and do so for financial gains.

As a foreigner or tourist, looking for that decent girl to consummate your cravings would prove difficult, though there is still that edge. However, you need to put in the work to break through the language barrier and their conservatism which makes it difficult for them to truly express themselves.

One quick tip, learn some few Mandarin words, frequently take her out for a treat, buy her gifts (very essential) express yourself to her, talk about your country, your culture, and most importantly make your intentions clear to them and you would be possible on your way to getting laid with that decent girl.

For those involved in sex transactions, the hurdles are pretty much less especially as a foreigner or tourist. You getting laid with this set won’t be a problem aside from the language barrier. All you have to do is take the first move and take the initiative as interactions with foreigners may seem rare despite their inclination towards them. You have to be in the right place and at the right time.


Sex Culture

Generally, in China, premarital sex is culturally frowned at. With changing times and urbanization of the country especially Dongguan, there is a bit of freedom with which individuals and couples express their sexual proclivities. This cultural shift ranges from, a separation of sex from love and childbearing such as internet sex and one-night stands, an increase in observable sexual diversity such as homo- and bisexual behavior and fetishism, more open discussions of sex topics, including sex studies at colleges.

The implicating effect is that sex is increasingly viewed as something personal. The reduction in sexual controls has introduced an enabling atmosphere for sexual expression. This is evident in Dongguan. The sexual culture and activities you would notice within this city are a result of the cultural shift and those utilizing the most of this freedom are the younger generations.


One-Night Stands

Among travelers, tourists, and business expatriates and tycoons who do business across the globe, engaging in one-night stands is a prevalent sexual behavior.

Dongguan which has within her domain these categories of persons is not exempted. As a foreigner, if you find yourself in this category, the possibility of a one-night stand is very high despite the cultural imputations and language barrier if it has to do with the locals.

However, your chance of indulging a very decent girl is low but not impossible. The dominant class that will avail you the opportunity to satisfy your cravings would inescapably be the sex traders or otherwise the prostitutes.

One tricky way that is not overtly utilized here is online dating platforms. It can be said that satisfying that craving is pretty easy using this medium as tons of females both local and foreign engage these sites to meet a willing partner.


Best Places to Meet Single Girls

Dongguan, home to the largest shopping mall in Asia will have people from the different fields of endeavors, works of life, local and foreign, male and female trooping in and out to buy their necessaries and luxuries.

Marriage

Marriage in China is influenced by western cultures. The idea of arranged marriage is not in vogue in Dongguan. However, it is prevalent to see a man having a wife with one or more concubines.

Same-sex marriage is prohibited but the prevalent situation is that one gets married to the opposite sex and continues with the homosexual relationship with the other partners. the law bans marriage between close relatives which is defined as lineal relatives; blood relatives in the line of descent.

Marriage in Dongguan comes in different forms, ranging from naked marriage to flash marriage. Naked marriage popularly called Luohun in Chinese slang which signifies no ring, no ceremony, no honeymoon, no home, and no car.

Although it negates tradition, this type is done for those who are yet to own any significant assets. To be backed by law and legally recognized, it must be registered with the government by marriage law.

Flash otherwise called Shanhun is for a marriage between partners who had known themselves for less than one month. In some cases, these young couples represent a changing attitude towards romantic love. They are done due to pressures from their parents to marry early, to avoid the connotation that it is too late.


Wedding
