Bachelors seek love from billboard ad (2)

By Zheng Jinran (China Daily)

All three bachelors agreed to post their statuses and requirements this way, he added.

Also appearing on the billboard are Zhang Yang, 27, and Shi Ying, 33. The costs of the billboard will be divided between the three bachelors and dating website, Baihe, which submitted the proposal and arranged the advertisement.

Renting the billboard for a month will cost each of the bachelors about 50,000 yuan ($7,870).

"I felt a little overwhelmed by so many calls in four days, from women who want to be friends with me, and even from their relatives, who recommended someone to me," Gao said.

So he decided to put finding a girlfriend aside for a while.

"Besides, I received a call from a woman I used to love, who was also my classmate," he said. "Thanks to this advertisement, she found out I'm still single and available, so now we are back in touch."

Many people believed the billboard was just a website promotional gimmick. And not everyone approves.

Jerry Li, a marriage counselor and founder of the counseling website Astrojerry in Shanghai, said finding a wife this way is not acceptable at all.

"It's like showing off wealth and status instead of searching for mates seriously. Their attitude about love is totally wrong," he said.
