Canadian dating culture Sex dating live chat
I never thought that the cultural background of a dating prospect would make much of a difference when it came to relationships.However, since living in New York, I’ve had the opportunity to meet many different people from various backgrounds and it’s become clear that there are definite cultural norms specific to European men versus American men (especially New Yorkers).The People The vast majority of Canadians claim European ancestry.Four in nine Canadians claim some British ancestry and a little less than one in three have some French ancestry.Whether you find your future partner on a popular TV show or through a mutual friend, dating has a much more serious tone—you’re in it to win it. However, for the younger generation, cuddling or even a quick peck is fine.All the same, I personally think that PDA in China carries different meaning from what one might see in Canada.I remember my younger sister asking my parents once why she’d never seen them kiss.
Broadly speaking, Canada has been divided into two distinct societies, one French-speaking (see "Quebec" below) and one English-speaking.Not to mention possible cultural differences that often add to the chaos. While you may see high school couples here and there in China, dating doesn’t usually begin until after they have finished their education. Most students don’t even have time to sleep, much less handle a relationship. Here, you might go on a few casual dates in order to decide if you truly like someone and want to pursue a relationship with them. On the first few dates, you may be asked about your job or your income, or whether or not you have a house or a car. Public displays of affection are more subdued in China.All relationships are unique, but here are five differences that you may find between Chinese and Canadian dating culture. But in China, you date because you’re already serious about each other. While in Canadian dating culture it may seem offensive to be asked such personal questions so early on, being a good fit financially is very important in Chinese culture when determining if one should start a serious relationship. For the older generation, hand-holding or linking arms may be the most that happens.Sure, they will go out for dinner and do fun activities, but it’s not packaged up in a formal and contrived manner. It’s more organic and instead of defining the relationship in order to know how to act, they let the relationship unfold and the label of boyfriend/girlfriend just naturally develops in the process. European men are comfortable with women, which leads to respect for women.Perhaps this has to do with their upbringing, where it’s very normal for boys and girls to play and intermingle together.
