    Humph, the Chinese are blowing us away in terms of becoming a true free enterprise country…

  2. This is stunning. With a ratio of 122 men per 100 women, are these Chinese women so undesirable that they have to rent a boyfriend? Or are the Chinese men so undesirable that there only a few choice ones?

    Clearly, I’m not understanding something.

      Females can afford to be picky. But that doesn’t change the family pressures. Basically, some females live in the city, miles away from their family. The either don’t have or don’t want a boyfriend, but don’t want to go home without one. A single girl at home would face pressure from her family asking why she isn’t married, why she doesn’t have a boyfriend, etc etc. So, she deals with it by hiring a guy to be her boyfriend for a day.

  3. I presume their are services in China offering rent-a-girlfriend as well. There are certainly many of them on the US internet.

    Come to think about it, it is a pretty good idea.
