Pushy parents turn matchmaking events into ‘marriage fairs’ (12)

People's Daily Online)  08:18, July 10, 2013  

A woman and a man exchange their phone numbers during the blind date event in park.

The woman’s mother asked the man whether it was late for home and would he have dinner with his parents at home. The young man replied that he took the highway and would be home in an hour. The girl’s mother added that the community she lived in had very small parking lots and the parking fee was 5 yuan a day.

The loving dialogue is of no chat but connotations. “Parking fee” and “limited parking area” suggests that the girl’s family lives in an apartment built in 1980s. “Taking the highway” and “an hour’s drive” indicated the young man lives in middle-ranged community uptown.

A mother discloses the unspoken rules in Shanghai’s blind date corner that only men who meet the following conditions can find girl friends in the park. Firstly, a man has a downtown flat with at least two bedrooms and a living room under his name. Secondly, the man will not live with his parents after marriage. Thirdly, his monthly wages is above 8,000 yuan.
