K Lesli Ligorner, a spokesperson for the Shanghai office of Paul Hastings LLP, confirmed that Shanghai had not yet mandated that expats enroll in all five social insurance programmes, though she added that many districts permitted them to contribute voluntarily to some.Sun Yang, a public relations director from Momo, told Metropolitan that they have seen more expats using their dating app over the past few years, though they didn't have any statistics detailing their number of foreign users.Another dating app, Tantan, didn't reply to Metropolitan's calls as of press date, but according to Metropolitan's count, it contains around one expat user for every 10 Chinese users in expat-heavy neighborhoods like Guomao and Sanlitun.Swiping left means you do not like the person, right means you do. She's got a nice smile," he said to himself, and swiped right. According to Jeff's profile on Tantan, 5,166 girls have liked him over the past year, which translates to 5,166 chances to meet new girls online.It was a match, which meant the girl also liked him. In that time, he's achieved 1,196 matches, which meant that he and 1,196 girls liked each other.“As soon as the national government mandates that all localities comply with the national regulations, then Shanghai will follow suit and mandate that all companies enroll all of their foreigners.
We expect this to take place by the end of the first quarter of 2012.” David King, a Shanghai-based expat and CEO of Iris China, said that the scheme seemed to be “an initiative that may have been announced by Beijing's central government without due consideration or consultation with the various regional governments, and as a result there has been a mixed reaction with some regions adopting it immediately, some regions planning to adopt it in due course and back date it to the announcement date last year, and others seeking to delay its implementation.
Still, though, he felt just a little bit empty, a little bit restless, and so he logged onto Tantan, a Chinese dating app similar to Tinder, that he has been using for the past year.
He started swiping through prospective partners' pictures and limited profiles, which include information like age, zodiac sign and occupation.
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.
“It appears that Shanghai is not yet ready to accept foreigners into all five schemes, [and] the government has not released an official announcement or reason as to why there is a delay or as to when foreigners can expect to have to enroll,” she said.
