The most important event in the entire Chinese festive calendar is the Lunar New Year. It begins on February 10 and signifies a fresh start in life and a time for new hopes.
I know I sound like a broken record about the benefits of dating online, especially if you are single and over 40.

I ran into an acquaintance I haven’t seen in at least 15 years that I knew from when I was single again in my mid to late 30’s. She is still single and never married and must be in her late 40’s or early 50’s by now. I have always known her to be friendly, warm, smart and attractive. However, for some reason she has not yet connected with the right life partner. Do you know what she said to me? ….. She told me, “I should have worked with you ten years ago!”
