While the British aren’t ashamed to hang signs on themselves and wander across the streets as walking adverts for girlfriends, the Chinese apparently aren’t ashamed to place ads for hiring a girlfriend for a lucrative sum.
An unidentified Chinese kid is seeking a date for his family reunion at an upcoming spring festival and is offering 1 million Chinese Yuan (around $170,000) to the perfect candidate. According to the ad the guy has placed on a Chinese website, the suitable candidate should be no older than 25, should weigh less than 50kg and be more than 1.68m tall, and should have at least a Bachelor’s degree. The “tenant” is promising an extra 10% if the girl has a Master’s degree. Apart from the lucrative payment, the chosen winner will also get fly on a chartered flight from Shenzhen to Zhengzhou.
According to statistics, more than 10,000 girls have commented on the ad, while more than half of them have already applied to it. The boy’s identity is kept in secret, although the ad features a photo, allegedly of him, with a pile of banknotes.
