In the world of online Chinese and Asian dating there really is nothing quite like them. That's because the blogs are written by real Chinese or Asian women and real Western men, all members of CLM or ALM. The forum is for members to discuss serious cross- cultural issues, and problems relating to long distance international internet dating. But the blogs and forum are about more than that, much more, because we believe that the members' understanding of each other's diverse history, traditions, food, parenting beliefs, and cultural background are incredibly relevant in developing a strong and lasting mutual love. Likewise the sharing of mutual interests, such as travel, cooking, gardening, humour, modes of entertainment, hobbies, crafts, spiritual beliefs, and many other factors are crucial to maintaining a healthy bond. Unlike other dating sites who publish endless fluff that has no value beyond enticing people to join, at ChinaLoveMatch.net and AsiaLoveMatch.net we understand your desire is not simply to meet someone special today, but to join someone special for life. We keep it real, to ensure your newfound Chinese or Asian love lasts forever.

With great sadness we must say goodbye to Richard. He has notified us that his work load is keeping him too busy to be able to keep contributing to his blog, and this will be his last submission. Rich and his beautiful Chinese wife, Rebecaa, are almost like family to us here at CLM, and his blog will be sorely missed. He's promised to keep us posted on how they're doing and we'll pass any news along to you.
Scandal! China Love Match blogger says "Forget about it! Women can be trouble! Forget about it and get a dog!" No, that isn't what I said! (Always be kind to animals, I do say that) All I said was that when doing international online dating you have to be aware of - not only differing cultural values, which is something China Love Match is very helpful with - you have to be aware of the different meanings and "values" males and females put on the same words.
Summer’s here and the time is right for busting barbecues in the street in Beijing and other civic-minded localities. I was sitting at a very small table on very precarious chairs near a friend’s apartment very early Friday morning sharing some cold Tsingtaos and generally solving the world's problems as we watched the late night/early morning bbq crowd ebb and flow around us.
There is an old saying I first heard many years ago as a young State police officer. People, to include myself, would often complain about their job or location and consider a transfer of jobs or move to another in-state city. Invariably, someone older and wiser would say, “Be careful what you ask for, you might just get it.” What does this old saying mean and does it apply to you?
Ok, so let’s quit with the anthropology heading – I am actually just a casual observer rather than some learned professional so I all my comments are coming from my own personal experience rather than some multi-tome study on China – I am sure people will disagree with some of my views, and I welcome that! And that is a little bit about what my next topic is about, how Chinese women might ‘function’ in a ‘community’ sense.
In the first part, I discussed the meaning of Yaunfen, as it is understood in China and as I understand it from a Chinese-leaning western perspective. I also wrote that anyone subscribing to CLM must understand and believe in it to some degree; otherwise, they would not be searching for their future partner here or at any other personals website. We are all hoping to make the connection to and with someone else. Many of the subscribers to CLM or those just visiting have been married before. It is a testament to the desire for love and companionship that any of you are here.
Recently Jiangsu TV has promoted a show called “If you are the one (Fei Cheng Wu Rao)”, which presents blind dates between single male and female. In the show, there is a man who is requested to face 24 girls to answer the questions. The girls might select him to carry on next round or knock him out by putting out the lights. It takes only 5 minutes for each gentleman’s interview. On May 3rd, the show played a British man named Alexander who was strongly recommended by his friends to participate the TV blind date. Eventually, he was out by two major reasons even all the audiences were touched by his humor in such a short time. One was his DJ work, RMB300 per day, the girls thought that it wasn’t a steady job with uncertain incomes. The other was his hobby: retrieve the junks for environmental protection. His bed was one of the recycled garbage. Mr. Le Jia, the commentator of the show, lately stated in his blog that it was a pity that Alexander had been eliminated for the realistic mating preference of 24 girls. He also encouraged Alexander could find a nice Chinese girlfriend who understands and stands by him.
I remember the early days when I first came to ZhuHai. There were no more surprises for me, and even some disappointments. No city I had been before was like ZhuHai with its large buildings, shopping malls, constant stream of people, street side breakfast shops and crowded, jammed buses… I lived in an area called NanXiangLi, where it even felt strangely tedious. The feeling confused me and I wondered if it was because I was a newcomer or were there problems in this city. Or is it just because ZhuHai is one of the original four Special Economic Zones?
As long as we are on the subject of interviews (see the last two posts), I can’t resist including a portion of a recent conversation I had with S, a waitress at the Chengdu Hooters. I had gone to Hooters that morning for two reasons. No, not those two. Their restaurant was one of the few places in this corner of Sichuan province where you could get a full American breakfast and a wireless connection.
(This blog post will be more meaningful if you've read the first one...) Ask anyone who has ever been to China and tried to cross the road as a pedestrian or even worse, caught a taxi – rules are irrelevant!!! Well, maybe this is a bit excessive because obviously people do follow a rules or two when driving a car – those are

60 Yr Old Teachers Banned in China
Barry1 has reported, based on reliable sources and backed by a recent Google search, that China is no longer allowing foreign English teachers to teach English in China if they are 60 years or older. This is bad news for many members of CLM who are already teaching English in China now, or are planning to in the near future, but who are 60 years old or nearing that mark.
