Dating attitudes and behaviors of american and chinese college students

Those who dated only Caucasians were more sexually experienced than those who dated only Chinese.Results are discussed in terms of differences in sexual attitudes and behaviors between Caucasian Americans and Chinese Americans and in terms of acculturation.China has been divided into a dual-structure society for decades, where those living in rural areas (approximately 50.3% of the population) typically have lower-quality educations and lower-income jobs than those living in urban areas [1–3].Dating from the 1980s, China has experienced dramatic social and cultural changes due to the open-door policy and economic reforms.However, knowledge concerning human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) transmission and the risks is insufficient, particularly for those from rural areas, which is a challenge for HIV/AIDS control in China.The Chinese government should establish more specific HIV/AIDS prevention policies for Chinese young women, strengthen sex education, and continue to perform relevant research.

Survey results indicate that the American and Chinese college students differ on a series of dating attitude and behavior variables.

While researchers have long examined the dating and mate selection patterns among young adults, the vast majority have utilized Western samples.

In order to further our understanding of the changing nature of dating behaviors and attitudes, this study examines a sample of young Chinese adults and focuses upon the gender differences therein.

These discrepancies are discussed in the light of Mc Cabe’s theory of dating as well as the different cultural orientations and values of the American and Chinese societies.

Credit cards have been very big business for several decades.

Many college students are living on the verge of a financial crisis.
