(Online Dating India ) These sites are aesthetically designed to appeal to all those asians logging in right from the start. China is the largest contributor to online dating and India is also not far behind. This is of course to be expected, what with the top two populated countries in the world. The last two years have seen tremendous growth in this part of the world and people dating in asia is going to cross those in the west very soon.

But the ground rules for dating in this part of the world is slightly different from the west. People here have patriachal systems and the women let the men make the first move. The women are very loyal and are using dating as a supplement to arranged marriages. Most probably the final authority is with the family and if their consent is not available, the match may not go through even if she likes you. Casual flings and one-night stands are not at all present on the menu and if anyone is looking for them, maybe they have to try their luck somewhere else. Trying to learn the local language maybe good starting point to woo the women.

It will take a whole for the nations to digest this change and become really open and free, resembling the western dating scene. How much ever they change asian dating will be definitely a mix of the traditional values, culture and the western ideology.
