Veterans Day in U.S. is Singles Day in China

In the United States on November 11, we remember every single veteran who served our country. Meanwhile, in China that day, they simply focus on every single man and woman.

They call it Guang Gun Jie. It means Singles’ Day or Ones Day. It’s a pop culture holiday that began in the 1990’s at multiple universities in Nanjing, the capital city of Jiangsu.

College students created the celebration date based on the four lonely ones that make up the 11th day of the 11th month. The special day graduated with the university tradition and grew way beyond it. Now Singles’ is recognized by all kinds of young men and women across Chinese society.

Much of the festivities revolve around good food and good friends. Certain foods mark the occasion, but really the main way to celebrate is for singles to enjoy dinner with their other single friends. The tradition makes it important for each person to pay for his or her own meal to show their independence.

Some singles throw blind date parties to try to find a husband or a wife, they are constantly looking for new ways how to get the girl. Other singles take a husband or a wife by getting married on this day.

There is also a major online dating component to this day. Singles shop in what is like an internet supermarket looking for a spouse or their one true love. They pay what equates to $15 to post photos and vital statistics of themselves. What I like is they even are required to show official documents to prove what they post is their true online dating news.

Whether it’s the official Singles’ Day or any other day, the pressure to find a spouse is really on the guys because they greatly outnumber the girls. As you’ve surely heard by now, Chinese society favors male babies. According to government research, by the year 2020, the numbers dictate that more than 20 million Chinese men will be forced to remain bachelors.

The 4 Types Commitment That Every Girl Will Experience

As a girl, we are exposed to different kinds of relationship that we can encounter. As a matter of fact, ladies will commit to various types of relationship based on their age. Check out the types of commitment that every girl will eventually experience.

  1. High School Sweetheart

High school years were the simple times of our lives. Getting crushes and puppy love seems normal for this age. Even as we grow older, we will always go back and reminisce the days when we met our high school sweethearts.

  1. The Bad Boy

Bad Boys have an exceptional appeal to women. The ladies know that they are someone who is not good for them but they are like magnets that will pull you closer. Getting into a relationship with a bad boy is a crazy idea. However, women often prefer to be crazy that let the chance go.

  1. The Project

The best way to explain this type of commitment is that the ladies are accepting the challenge that they are different and can be the reason for a man to change. It is so typical with the Playboys. You know they can hurt you but you don’t care about it. You are thinking you are the miracle worker that can give him a change of heart.

  1. Mr. Perfect

There are guys who seem so perfect with everything such a good job, caring, thoughtful and any other good adjectives that you want to add. There is just one problem. Despite all his great qualities, you can’t make yourself fall for him. There will always be that kind of person. A great catch with no spark.

I’m pretty sure you can relate to all these types of commitment. We are women after all. These relationships may not work because as we age, we tend to listen to what our heart says when choosing the right man to love.
