The purpose of the study is to explore the social culture image of single women’s matchmaking experiences. The author also intended to puzzle out the confusion of her own life, including marriage, love, family, social interaction, culture, and being a woman. Therefore, the spirit of the research comprises two parts: one is the comprehension of the matchmaking; the other is the researcher’s introspection during the process.
In the very beginning of the study, the author started from her own life story as the pre-understanding of the research. The culture of family and gender is perceived as the fundamental factors of affecting the single women’s matchmaking experience.
Research data was collected by interview and understood based on the hermeneutic point. The participants of the study were twelve single women with more than twice matchmaking experiences. By speaking with them, the social meaning of affecting the process of matchmaking’s establishment and practice were investigated.
According to the analysis, the meaning of single women’s matchmaking experience can be understood from five aspects: what is matchmaking; the preparation before the matchmaking; the circumstance when matchmaking begins; the review after the matchmaking, and the supplement of relevant issues. The social culture image can be understood as well from six aspects: how celibacy is perceived as a problem, the perception of love, the perception of marriage, roles of different gender, familial ethics, and the custom and religion. How the concept of the marital destiny (Yin-yuan) affected by these six perceptions is inspected. The restriction of the research would also be discussed in the conclusion as the suggestions for further research.
Overall, the research not only explored how the single women felt during the matchmaking, but also expected to empower the researcher herself through the research process.
