Chinese Dating App Flies Men to Beijing for Blind Dates

BEIJING, July 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- OE Dating ( will fly men to Beijing for blind dates during their "Fly for Love" event this September. The dating service helps Chinese women meet international men as many of China's over 240 million singles[1] show increased interest in intercultural dating. The company currently has more than 50,000 female members in China and hopes this event will encourage more men to visit their members.

OE Dating belongs to China's growing online matchmaking industry. By the year 2018, the revenue generated by China's online dating industry expanded to the equivalent of over 700 million dollars[2]. Despite this growth, the world's leading dating services, including Tinder and, have been unable to enter the market directly. The lack of access to global dating platforms means that for many Chinese singles, domestic matchmaking apps are the only option for finding relationships on the internet.

However, due to China's traditional views on dating, many successful and well-educated women find it difficult to meet eligible bachelors on Chinese dating apps[3]. This difficulty in finding local matches fuels an increased demand for international dating. In response, dating apps now offer features for intercultural couples, such as in-app translations, which help overcome language barriers in the early stages of a relationship.

OE Dating wants to give couples a chance to meet and will fly dates directly to Beijing. The "Fly for Love" event coordinator Christopher Manzano says, "that offering plane tickets for men to visit China is the first step towards opening up travel for more members." For many unfamiliar with Asia, a trip to China can seem full of uncertainties, but by chronicling these stories, online matchmakers hope to encourage more members to visit and explore long-term relationships with Chinese singles.

The team behind OE Dating has worked in the matchmaking industry with traditional marriage centers since 1995. With the latest update of their app, they invite the world to try international dating and will welcome bachelors to apply for blind dates in Beijing through their "Fly for Love" event this August.

OE Dating is available for download from the App Store ( and Google Play ( Selections for the "Fly for Love" event begin in-app on August 15th, 2019.
