High school age dating rules

11 Dec

For a lot of Chinese people, serious dating starts after they’ve finished school.

More so than Westerners, many Chinese view dating as a pragmatic affair.

Growing up in Japan my parents were really strict and so I didn’t get an opportunity to start going on dates until after I graduated from high school.

If their child’s significant other doesn’t meet with the parents’ approval, continuing the relationship will be very difficult.

Tell your teen that you will talk about dating when he or she is ____ years old.

Then you can sit down and have a conversation to see if your teen is ready.

Among Japanese teenagers the most basic way of starting to date someone is by giving them a “kokuhaku” or love confession.

This sounds a bit creepy but it’s not so much telling someone you love them but rather the Japanese way of letting them know you like them and asking them out.
