That's strange. Due to China's one child policy and their preference for male children you would think that the ladies would have their pick of men. Maybe it need longer to take effect?

Having your choice of 100 duds or 10,000 duds isn't really all that different.

Women trade mating, nesting and allowing their beauty to be displayed to a man's peers as a status symbol, in exchange for financial security.  You're really going to pretend that's not the traditional economics of gender?  Really?

Eh, this is pretty much most of the college educated gals in all the 1st and 2nd tier cities like Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.

If not a millionaire, that guy better be able to buy an apartment in the city, which is no small feat with the overheated property values.  There's been a few articles about gals looking for those type of guys and dumping their BF who can't afford it.

I've been to China a couple of times. And I'll just say this, if I was a guy over there I'd skip out on the Chinese and marry from a neighboring country.
Talking to women over there, you get a real sense of entitlement and of being a 'rare commodity' (excuse the term) that is really off putting.
Including one Chinese tour guide who when asked about the situation went off on a litany of entitlement that ended with "he's got to show me the money to get the honey."
I kid you not.

illannoyin: "I'd rather cry in the back of my husband's Mercedes than smile on the back of his bicycle." -Chinese female proverb


I went to go search for some other chinese proverbs regarding women and came up with these:

The scholar builds the cities, the woman knocks them down.

The woman who tells her age is either too young to have anything to lose or too old to have anything to gain

Beauty is the wisdom of women. Wisdom is the beauty of men.

A young woman with an old man is really someone else's woman.

A curious woman is capable of turning around the rainbow just to see what is on the other side.

The virtue of a woman does not go deep but her passion knows no limit.

The tongue of a woman is the sword that is never allowed to rust.

The spirit of women is made of quicksilver; their heart of wax.

Man is the head of the family, woman the neck that turns the head.

Women and fools never forgive.

Women never praise without gossiping.

Other factors at work. The rich men want what all rich men want: young, beautiful and a lot of them. The middle class men are finding out that they get more bang for the buck by going international, and the available women don't want a poor man (which is still the vast majority).

You got the tea scam?

For those of you interested in going to China some day, or considering, here is how the tea scam goes down:
A lady or two approach you, very friendly, if the "we're just looking for a good time" approach doesn't hook you, they go for the "we're students and it would be great if we could practice with you"
They then take you to a tea house or a bar where they order drinks that you later find out cost ridiculous amounts of money. This includes rare and delicate teas that cost a fortune.

Hence tea scam.

I actually got to see the Tea Scam in action in malls. (We were a largish group). I heard several people talking about it as well.
Kind of a classier scam with good-looking girls who speak decent English, so I'm guessing the Tea Houses pay them (relatively) well.

I saw an interview with the "bachelor" from the first Joe Millionaire. It was sad. The guy was a complete male version of an air head, but he was saying that he nailed most of those chicks on the show multiple times. He said it wasn't even a challenge, they all thought he was mega rich and were falling over themselves and doing anything to get him. He said after the first day he could tell who were the plants and who were really their thinking they were on a show because the women who thought it was a real show all offered up the ass by the end of the first day.

If this is new in China, then they're lagging.  Khordokovsky made his first fortune in 1990s Russia hosting Ru. mafia beauty contests where every woman was a winner, and every winner got Matthew Barnetted.  I've no reason to believe that the mob has stopped doing this.  Luciano and Lansky probably did similar things.

China's marriage politics are pretty farked. I live in Shanghai, and you can't even get married unless you already own a car and apartment. Not rent apartment- own it outright. This is in a city where property is more expensive than Manhattan. So men get the shaft because almost no one can make that kind of money before 29 (marriage cutoff age) unless they get it from mama and baba, and then they have to take care of not one but two sets of parents who will be controlling every aspect of you, your wife, and your single child's life. not to mention the four sets of grandparents you'll have to support, alone.

Girls aren't much better off. They're in demand, but some poll this year just revealed most Chinese women would rather marry a rich divorcee in his forties with his own family and no obligations than anyone else. They don't want recently wealthy guys, since their families are more likely to resent them and come calling with their hands out.

Shanghai women are stereotyped as the worst. And for the most part it's true- they're cliquish, merciless golddiggers who only speak Shanghai dialect and consider everyone outside of Shanghai as a farking peasant. Good luck getting 50 million RMB together, Mr. White Collar from Xi'an, even though you're richer than most Americans and your hometown is one of the oldest cultural centers in China, you've got zero chance.
