What is the 'solution' for 180 million single men and women?

(People's Daily Online)

08:32, November 06, 2012


According to survey reports, there were 180 million single men and women in China in 2011. Under great life and work pressure, people living in cities bustle and rush among the tall buildings day after day. They appear to engage in extensive social networks but actually are living in a dramatically shrinking life circle. All sorts of methods emerge for these single men and women to look for their other parts. Some entrust friends or relatives for introductions, some register at dating agencies in a low-key manner, some develop online and TV dating programs, and some even start to use "WeChat", "Momo" and other mobile phone tools to "leave the matter to chance".

Different values of life, unconformity to beauty and talent standards, incompatible details of life, and even inconsistency of constellation pairing standards... too many value misalignments cause the young people to meet and depart once and again on the road of marriage interviews, remaining strangers in the world of love.
