Dating Portal AsianBeauties Draws on Optimism of Ladies in the Far East
BANGOR, Feb. 14 /CNW/ - As the official day of romance approaches on
February 14 the dividing line between blissful lovers and cynical
singles becomes ever wider. Loving couples are finding their special
day complicated by the growing movement against the perceived
materialism and ethos of Valentine's Day. Although the latest
statistics from the American Greetings Corporation show around 60 per
cent of Americans still mark the passionate event, there's an
increasingly vocal minority of dissent.
Singles Awareness Day was launched to express the concept of
'Anti-Valentinism' with some supporters even going so far as to wear
non-romantic colors and hold parties for those not in a relationship.
This negative viewpoint has been fuelled in recent years by statistics
such as the $13.7 billion spent on Valentine's gifts and cards each
year. Focusing on such news can be seen as reflective of a pervading
cynicism felt more strongly in the Western world.
For those who don't want their Valentine's spoiled by party poopers they
should look to the pure spirit celebrated throughout Asian countries
such as China, Thailand and the Philippines. Although China officially
celebrates its version of Valentine's Day with the Qixi Festival on
August 6, romantic sentiments are sky high with more and more Asians
also observing Western Valentine's. This fact is backed up by figures
from iResearch who recently predicted the Chinese users of internet
dating would soon hit the 140 million mark.
To help share in Asia's feel good factor, dating portal AsianBeauties
has just launched a special online beauty pageant in time for the
Valentine's period. Guys can view the Valentine's themed photos and
