I’d do anything for love (but I won’t do that). You won’t believe some of the bizarre things people do when it comes to finding love. Check out these 5 ridiculous dating trends in Asia:
1. Shanghai Matchmaking Expo
At this exhibition in Shanghai, thousands (yes, thousands) of moms try their hand at matchmaking, displaying photos and resumes of their single sons and daughters in hopes of finding them a partner. Yes, this actually happens.
2. Dinner With Foreigners (aka White People)
3. Goodbye Sushi Dates, Hello McDonalds
In some parts of Asia, fast food establishments like McDonalds, Pizza Hut, and KFC are beginning to be seen as “chic” and “stylish” places to take your date. It looks a dollar menu first date isn’t such a bad idea after all.
4. Couple Shirts Are Just the Beginning
Matching t-shirts for couples are just the tip of the iceberg in Asia. Matching lanyards, belts and phone cases — you name it, they’ll have it.
