Poets top the list of undesirable singles: survey

(China Daily)

09:58, November 11, 2011

BEIJING - The Chinese Single People's Association released a list - 11 Careers in China that Prospective Partners Shun the Most - on the eve of Singles' Day.

Zhang Yiyi, who called himself the president of the association, said that poets, highly-admired in the past, topped the list of those having careers that were being seen as the most undesirable.

On the list, secretaries are ranked at number two, for the reason that they "do not have a good reputation". Lawyers finished at number three, according to Zhang.

"We distributed 111,111 well-designed questionnaires in 111 cities across the country, and got the list after a careful analysis," said Zhang.

"I'm not surprised to be ranked at number three," said Hu Hong, a lawyer who works at the Beijing branch of an United States-based law firm. "If you release a list of people with careers that were most likely to get divorced in China, lawyers will, no doubt, rank among the top five."
