Dating norms in other countries

If a girl wants to tell her suitor that she is interested, she will place two red chopsticks inside of the roll of rice.If she is not, however, she will only put one chopstick inside.

The man will speak with the bride’s mother and come to an agreement of a fair price before the couple can live happily ever after.During this time, women make sticky rice in various colors, roll it in a handkerchief and give it as a gift to their potential suitors.While this sounds like a fun way to get acquainted with a future partner, for men it can actually be a pretty harsh form of rejection.An old saying goes, “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” Well, the women of a group called Miao in Southwest China know the accuracy of this age old axiom.This group has a holiday similar to Valentine’s Day called Sisters’ Meal Festival.
