This Friday marks the start of the annual Chinese Lantern Festival, when the first full moon appears for the New Year. During this time, the Chinese release or display lanterns (which are red in color for good fortune) to symbolize the letting go of old selves and welcoming in of the future as improved, stronger individuals. Nowadays, the lanterns boast intricate designs, and festivals, like the famed festival in Chengdu, China’s Sichuan Province, attract floods of visitors.
China Love Date, a premier dating website to help Western men meet Eastern women in China, recognizes the holiday with open arms, especially for those who are looking for true love in the upcoming year.
“It’s a time to let go of old relationships to be able to fully search for a new one -- with 100% effort and no strings attached,” said China Love Date, creator, Marcus. “The start of the New Year is always a hopeful time for everyone, and you never know who you can meet if you give love a chance.”
In past times, the youth of China were chaperoned to the streets of their communities in hopes of finding their one true love, and it was rumored to be the true Chinese Valentine’s Day. Now, in present times, the festival has lost such an implication, and the festival marks the turning of a new leaf.
Oftentimes, the beginning stages of dating can feel strange, especially as an individual heals from the past, all while hoping for true love in the future. Despite this confusion, forward progression is necessary for improvement in general; and, in celebration of the Lantern Festival, China Love Date issues how-to tips for those just (re)starting to date:
- Make a list of old past habits that you think attributed to former breakups. Revisit this list often, especially as you begin to meet new people, to remind yourself of your former mistakes and encourage yourself not to recommit past errors.
- In addition to making a list of bad habits, making a list of your positive traits is a great refresher beneficial to almost any person. Reading these self affirmations daily will help establish the default mindset that you’re worthy of a healthy, positive relationship – both with yourself and another individual. Positivity is key with any approach.
- Oftentimes, the rush of a new relationship may feel passionate and enthralling. Making a timeframe to remind yourself to take things slow is a great tactic to keep yourself as level-headed as possible. During the first month of a new relationship, a weekend trip might not be recommended, but during the second or the third month, taking an extended getaway with a partner is a great way to transition to the next step.
- What are the qualities you seek in a mate? What are the red flags you should steer clear of? Being honest with yourself is key in growing, as well as for forming a new relationship. While you don’t want to keep a checklist of the perfect person, making sure an individual holds key qualities will allow you to pursue a relationship that is destined for the long run.
“New beginnings are always exciting,” said Crellin. “And, China Love Date is here to help people find a new beginning that will hopefully last forever.”
