From parental pressures to societal stereotypes, get a first hand perspective on Chinese dating in America right here!

By Katherine Chong In America, the Chinese community is represented by all walks of life – educated and unschooled, Buddhist and Christian, immigrant and American-born, first generation to sixth.

The importance of family, honor, and hard work are reflected in all aspects of life, including romantic relationships and dating.

As a first generation Chinese American, I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, a major hub for multitudes of Asians and Asian Americans.

I had always understood certain facets of everyday life as norms since most of my peers were like me and grew up in households like mine.

I never attributed tenets as simple as honoring and respecting elders, especially parents, to my ethnic upbringing.

The Parental Influence Like many Chinese parents, mine only expected the best – the best grades, the best schools, the best jobs, and the best husband who shared those same qualities.
