'Find a mate in 90 days'

SHANGHAI - In the eyes of many Chinese women, finding love has become a mission impossible. Liang Yali has made it her mission to prove them wrong.

This self-styled life coach says she can help any single woman find her perfect husband in just 90 days - for a price.

"We're not a matchmaking service, we're pioneers," said the 41-year-old founder of Yali Marriage Quotient, which is run from an exclusive club in Shanghai's Pudong New Area. "We're more like an educational institute. We offer classes that help women understand themselves better, and build their confidence so they are more outgoing.

"Good things, including marriage, will happen once they start coming out," she said, adding that 60 percent of her students last year have already "graduated" by tying the knot with Mr Right.

The premium package, which consists of four two-day classes and tailored coaching, costs 11,800 yuan ($1,900). However, the company also offers other courses that range from two hours to three days, with the cheapest at 4,800 yuan.

"That's very little to pay to improve your life - to meet your soul mate and start a family," said Kenneth Davis, 52, the company's executive director and Liang's husband.
