This dating service is only for Australians and their admirers who live the same lifestyle as you.State media has exacerbated this gender discrimination, Hong Fincher finds, with the result often being that highly educated women quit their jobs before they marry out of fear they would become too old to find a husband.
A few days before the Year of the Dragon began, Jiayuan (Beautiful Destiny), China’s largest online dating service, summoned new employees to an orientation meeting at its headquarters, in a Beijing office tower. O., peered at a dozen new hires and informed them that they were now in “the happiness business.” She did not smile.

In Guo’s words: “My parents thought that if we helped him buy a home, he might be able to get married.” The notion of a ‘leftover woman’ - a highly educated, urban, professional woman over the age of 27 who is still single - has been peddled aggressively in columns, news reports and cartoons in Chinese state media over the past few years, urging women to be a little less ambitious, lower their standards and hurry up and find a husband, lest they become ‘unwanted’.
Your customers, she told them, will be virtually indistinguishable from yourselves: strivers, alone in the city, separated from love by “three towering mountains”—no money, no time, and no connections.
