Chinese dating forum
That has indeed been the case for the two male expats who talked to Metropolitan, both of whom have noticed they are more popular on Chinese dating apps than they are on apps in their home countries.A case in point is Bruce from the UK, who has only been using Tantan for one month but has already received 236 matches."In the UK, when I use Tinder, I usually get 20 to 30 matches tops, because there are fewer girls who swipe right for me than in China." Another difference, according to Bruce, is that in the UK, it is usually guys who start the conversation and do the work to try and impress and win over the girls."In China, I feel the girls are more keen to meet with me and impress me.
"Dating apps help break that invisible boundary between expats and locals," he said.
Some believe that relationships that start through dating apps tend to be more shallow since users are more focused on appearances.

Chinese dating apps have been seeing growing popularity among expats living in China, in part because many foreigners' social circles are largely limited to other expats, and these apps give them the chance to meet and date locals.
Among the most popular apps, both for Chinese and foreign singles, are Tantan, Momo and Skouts.
