They never thought they would be considered ‘leftover men’ here in the United States. Coming from solid family backgrounds and armed with degrees from top schools, these men are unquestionably outstanding, according to China’s standards. They studied hard and worked diligently to get to where they are today. Now in their 30s, they are filled with a desire to settle down and start a family. However, the reality is, it’s not as easy as they thought it would be... Let us share the stories of these three outstanding single men…

Some people have  come up with a checklist for their future partners. They must be… A graduate from a prestigious school, They must possess a Doctorate degree, They must either have filed Form I-485 or possess a green card.

Things can get pretty awkward for our matchmakers because of this.…

In the past, moving in with your partner before marriage was thought of as immoral. However, these days it’s become so common that two thirds of couples have lived together beforehand. The perks of moving in with your partner before marriage can’t be denied. You get to experience first hand what it’s like living together and it can even serve as a trial run before the actual marriage. However, the success of your cohabitation may depend entirely on how early or late you move in together! 2RedBeans asked our users…

You are bursting with excitement; you are about to meet your first date! She looks absolutely gorgeous and stunning from her profile photos. You can’t seem to contain your excitement as you walk into your meeting place. As you glance around, you see someone waving at you, but she looks horrifyingly unfamiliar. With the prevalence of beautifying filters in apps, it's common for people to "enhance" their physical appearance. What would you do if your first date looked significantly different in real life? How would you react if your date…

While busy preparing for your first date, your phone rings. The voice says, “I’m sorry, something popped up at the last minute and I had to deal with it. Would it be better if we could meet up another day instead?” If this happens just before your first date, how would you react? To find the answer, we asked our users for their opinion on what they would do if this happened to them. Below are the results we collected from over 1000 respondents. For ages 18-25, the difference lies…

Written by: Flora and Bessie As Eileen Chang, the renowned Chinese writer once said, “Meeting someone amongst the endless sea of people, in the boundless dimension we call time, is rare. Nobody was early, nobody was late, and though neither had the intention to meet, two people met. Both of them couldn’t say much, only this: Oh, so you happen to be here as well?” These words reflected my emotions perfectly after I finished listening to Mr H and Ms M’s success story. It brought a tear to my eye.…

Someone gave this analogy: Going on a first date is the same as going to an interview. Before setting off, your mind will be swimming with thoughts that seem to unsettle you. You start rehearsing your so-called ‘self-introduction’ in your head, which you spent a huge chunk of your time memorizing. You tell yourself you have to make a good impression. You might be a ‘strong hire’ or just a ‘hire’. You might even be on the ‘weak hire’ list, or you might not even be considered for the role…

Meeting someone new in person for the first time would probably give you jitters. Some will feel extremely nervous, others will have the ability to suppress these feelings and not let them overwhelm them. Which group do you belong to? Does gender play a role in causing the difference? Does age affect your level of anxiousness? Curiosity got the best of us and we decided to create a survey to answer these questions. So for the past week, we asked our users: Would you feel nervous, anxious or worried on…

Our CEO, Q Zhao, had the privilege to interview The Economist’s correspondent, Roseann Lake, on her new book “Leftover in China, The Women Shaping the World’s Next Superpower”. The interview touched on several topics which include: the “leftover women” phenomenon, the marriage issues they are facing and other unique problems they encounter in China. The book explored lives of four individual women against a backdrop of colourful anecdotes, citing interviews and research to show how these ‘leftover women’ are the linchpin to China’s future. The English edition of this book…

If you are still single in three years, would you start to adjust and perhaps, lower your expectations for your future partner? Our experiences shape our thinking as we grow. Our expectations, needs and wants are constantly remodeled after these experiences. As we grow older each year -- it’s already 2018 --, do we raise our expectations as well? More specifically, when it comes to relationships, do we also raise the expectations we have for our future partner, assuming you’re still single of course? In this week’s survey, we tackled…

 “2018. New year, new resolutions, new me.” We often tell ourselves to trust our feelings, feelings of love, and go with them. As Amelia Brand, portrayed by Anna Hathaway in the movie “Interstellar”, famously said in the movie: “Maybe it (love) means something more - something we can't yet understand. Maybe it's some evidence, some artifact of a higher dimension that we can't consciously perceive…… Love is the one thing we're capable of perceiving that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that, even if we can't…

To end the year with a boom, in this week’s survey for our 2RedBeans users, we decide to touch on a sensitive, provocative yet intriguing topic: friends with benefits, or FWB in short. The definition of FWB is as such: a relationship that has companionship (the friends part) that involves something intimate, such as making out and sex (the benefits part). Let’s jump right into the numbers, shall we? *rubs hands* The results Out of the 357 male respondents, 67.8% of them are open to such relationships. Interestingly, 91% of…

Age. An undeniably important factor when it comes to dating and relationships. I mean, to be really frank, I'm 24 years old this year (I think you can trust me on this). You can't possibly ask me to date someone who is old enough to be my.. mum. Yes, age is an important factor, and it can be a touchy one. Just look at all the dating apps in the market. Age is a must-have factor, and it determines the primary group of people you choose to give a chance…

Hi 2RedBeans readers, I'm back for more content for you! This is the tired me when I'm typing this:Just kidding. I'm currently intrigued (just as you will be) when I saw the latest poll results which we had on 2RedBeans main site (If you missed the poll, please explain yourselves in the comment section. Again, I'm just kidding). So are you ready? *rubs hands* The Second Poll After the first poll that we did previously on the types of gifts girls really want (if you have not read it, you…

Have you ever walked into a shopping mall, browsed a few stores, flirted a little with the salesperson, and in the end, the three hours you spent only resulted in you buying a cup of iced Americano from Starbucks? Hell yeah, that's relatable to me. In these divided times, there is one thing that guys can agree on: It is a headache thinking of gifts for your girlfriend. Come on, I know you agree. This was one problem I faced with my ex-girlfriend. I'm sure guys would agree (and girls…

Starting today, 2RedBeans will be undergoing significant changes in an effort to improve the online dating experience and increase the chances of connecting. What's changed? A review process: To improve overall quality, photos and profiles will be reviewed before they're available to the public. That means no more pictures of your dog as your profile photo. Messaging: Men need to first unlock a conversation before being able to compose their message. This is to cut down on mass copy & paste messaging and harassment. We're also hoping this will convince people to put a little…
