Nepal is named for the Kathmandu Valley, where the nation's founder established a capital in the late eighteenth century.Nepali culture represents a fusion of Indo-Aryan and Tibeto-Mongolian influences, the result of a long history of migration, conquest, and trade. Nepal is a roughly rectangular country with an area of 147,181 square miles (381,200 square kilometers).Labelling holy houses of worship as dating spots may baffle foreigners but they are the most obvious dating spots in this part of the world.Historically, popular temples have always been a favored location to go on a date.Even within Nepal, media reports of fake marriages and the abuse of Nepali women in China and Korea have given local people a negative impression of men from the two countries.Chinese and Korean men who want to marry Nepali women are all bracketed as people with bad character who cannot find wives back home, or are regarded as traffickers.So let’s try to understand the reasons behind common dating spots. Despite being a liberal island in a more conservative part of world, Nepal has local rules of romance which may seem a couple of centuries old to western people, that is if you want to “date like a local”.
These days, besides the standard process the District Administration in Nepal investigates the economic and social status of the Chinese and Nepali marriage applicants, require police reports, letters from the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Chinese Embassy. I finally joined the blogosphere after deciding there weren’t really blogs out there for people in an intercultural relationship (specifically) with Nepalis, and that it would be a great way to connect with others in South Asian-western relationships.I’m an international education professional in my mid-to-late-twenties, and I’ve been with my partner, P, for nearly eight years.This piece of literature is an attempt to nostalgically remember the old ways and their charm, but most of all it is a pseudo-instruction manual for any foreigners who are keen to date like the locals. Step 1: Select a Location There are countless locations known as dating spots.But some places are always more convenient or appealing than others, sometimes for reasons we outsiders may never understand.A few years ago, it had become trendy for Nepali women to get married to Chinese or Korean men, but the number of such marriages has decreased drastically after reports of abuse of Nepali women.
