Allot hanged cards with some information in, some OLD people who seems be very interested in what they were reading. So, can you guess what are they doing in the park? ( not looking for the job )
Cue: the cards be tied by RED cords, in chinese culture, red means good things.
“You know you love me,I know you care
You shout whenever, And I’ll be there
You want my love, You want my heart
And we will never ever ever be apart……” just singing a song ,
So have you already had any idea about the answer?
To be honest, the answer is a little weird. These old people are looking for the date for their children. It’s a very funny appearance in china, most chinese parents will be very worried about their children’s relationship, if their children are old enough to get married and are still single. On the other side, chinese young people today are not willing to get married for no good reasons. In the old days “age” is the only good reason, if you are old enough, you should get married, otherwise, you will be considered as a freak. but now, more and more young people prefer to live simple and free, they have good jobs, they made good money, they have three or four good buddies who can hang out with when life is a little bored, they are busy with their works in the day time, and enjoy themselves in the night. they desire love but must be the right person and the right feeling. And it’s not easy obviously.(oh boy, I’m this type of guy ) So, the attitude of their single life is “don’t worry” BUT, most of their parents is absolutely worried. 😀 they ask their friends to help introduce boys and girls to their single children. It’s very weird, two stranger meet in a coffee, try their best to find some stuff to talk about. Trust me, it’s embarrassing, for I did it twice( my uncle forced me to do this, not my mom, my mom is cool enough to never force me to do this kind of stuff ), you can’t get the right feeling, epic fail and wasting of time. I think it’s very common in china and south korea. it’s very old school. the picture above is in a park, some parents made a card and write down the information of their children on it, such as occupation, salary, and cell phone number. The parents looking for the person they feel good enough, and back home persuade to their children, some of whom are too busy to have a date, some of whom have no interested in dating with a stranger. See, when traditional culture meet with new culture, some thing embarrassing will happen.
So all I want to say is this is chinese parents, they love their children undoubtedly, but some times too much.
