    Hahahahaha ... statistics is, sadly, just statistics ...

    Over the 5 years in China, I have talked to quite a few girls from, and also not from, this site, the general opinion is that they would be happy to find someone reliable, however, many of them are also concerned about the "social status" of the men (education, jobs, money etc) ... it is not to say that they are wrong, but perhaps a bit close-minded, if I can say so?

    I think I had mentioined this story before?

    One of my friends is a slim beautiful 170cm girl, who started dating a driver from one of the major Chinese enterprises, after getting disappointed with quite a few guys ... they dated and then lived together, during which, she had concerns about the gaps in lifestyles and education among many things (she has a degree while he never went to college), e,g, she had trouble mixing with his friends and vice versa, and they often fought ... so we talked about it and she was a bit settled ...

    Anyway, they got married eventually, but I was shocked to learn that she went back to her parents after about a week or two, apparently, they had a fight, and she was thinking about a divorce, so we went through another long talk and I analysed for her all the pros and cons (heehee, off head, I cannot think of any more appropriate terms), and she was OK with that and moved back ...

    Of late, they are still fighting, but it seems that they are making progress and even planning to have baby in the new future ... except that she needs help to gain weight ... poor dear ... heehee ...

    So, if any girl is reading this ...

    Material matters and/or superficial matters (e.g. money, property, cars, jobs, even passports, education and career goals) might be important, but they are, and always will be, just part of the package, not the whole ... most importantly, and realistically, even if "ideal" exists, they are rare and might even turn out to be total jerks ... anyway, you know the rest from here ...

    Dude, those statistics come from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.  You should open your eyes and look around.  Granted there are more girls than guys in places like Gongti and Sanlitun, but check out the rest of Beijing.  It's a mantastic sausage fest in every corner.
