Bachelors seek love from billboard ad (4)

"This is the root reason why the new and high-profile way of getting a date is more and more popular."

He also admitted that nontraditional ways of finding dates may not be suitable for everyone.

"People have to be able to afford the cost of delivering their desires on billboards or other media first."

Many people in big cities like Beijing and Shanghai have to work for several years before they are ready to support a family.

"At that time, they find that they are in their 30s, and have passed their best years to get married," he said.

"Besides, many people set up too many requirements for prospective mates."

The number of men of marriageable age will outnumber marriageable age women by 30 million in 2020, according to a report released in 2007 by the National Bureau of Statistics.

"A tough situation for marriage at that time," said Wang.
