Lovers dating friend in china
Last month the People’s Daily newspaper warned that “social harmony and stability” could be threatened if millions of rural men were unable to find partners.But China’s super-rich women are facing problems of their own, said Mr Du, not least finding time to scout for would-be husbands.
Dating apps are a huge part of modern dating culture. Sure, you could go out and meet people to take on a date (read our guide on how to score a date).“I believe this is the first time [there has been such a scheme] only tailored for wealthy women,” Mr Du told The Daily Telegraph this week during a visit to Shanghai, one of the cities he is tapping for potential husbands.Dating is big business in China, a country that is reputedly home to some 180 million single people.“They are not looking for toyboys,” said Mr Du, who is 45 and holds a Master’s degree in Engineering from the University of Minnesota but said he was happily married with two children.“They are looking for guys who are very mature, understanding and very supportive, with a sense of humour and good taste [and] who know how to enjoy life and are honest.” A taste for Mahjong — a traditional Chinese gambling game — was also desirable, he added.“He should have some economic strength, at least 10 million yuan in assets, since all my friends have that much money or more and the personal wealth is a reflection of integrated capability.
He needs to have good morals and healthy lifestyle.” Applicants should also be prepared to relocate to Chengdu, a rapidly growing city around 1,240 miles west of Shanghai, famed for its pandas, fiery cuisine and aviation and car manufacturing industries.
So far around 1,500 men have signed up, including one Australian and several applicants from the US and Canada.
UK-based graduates of “famous [British] universities” had also applied, he said.
“Wealthy men don’t necessarily want a wife as successful as them.
They want a good wife and a good mother but they don’t necessarily want a successful women because [they think she] will spend lots of time on business [but] not on the family.
Phase two of the search will begin on July 20 when organisers start sifting through CVs and vetting the would-be husbands in a series of face-to-face meetings with relationship specialists and fortune-tellers in hotels around China.
