Dating courses are springing up in China

Dating courses are springing up in China
20 Nov 2017
  • Dating is difficult as it is, and is arguably worse for Chinese men who outnumber women.
  • Consequently, there have been growing concerns that a large number of single, unhappy men could lead to an increase in human trafficking and sex crimes.
  • To help the single population, courtship classes have sprung up in many cities in China.
  • Here's how they are getting 'dating ready'.

  • China's demographic problem
    FACT
    Owing to a cultural bias towards male children, and China's now-ended one-child policy, many couples aborted female fetuses leading to a demographic imbalance. As of 2016, China had 33.6 million more men than women according to official statistics.

    Dating schools in China
    Schools
  • Civil society hasn't been idle in China with people opening schools that give men tips on flirting, grooming, and relationships.
  • The "Fall in Love Emotional Education" school is one.
  • Founded by Zhang Mindong in 2014, the school, which started with one pupil, now has over 300 students. Over 90% of men who graduate end up with girlfriends.
  • There are several other such schools.

  • Learning how to flirt comes at a cost
    FACT
    Zhang Mindong's "Fall in Love Emotional Education" school offers differentially priced courses. For instance, online courses start from $45, whereas sustained one-on-one coaching sessions cost around $3,000.

    The Chinese government has started playing matchmaker
    Government efforts
  • To deal with the problem, the Chinese government has started playing matchmaker.
  • In June, the Communist Youth League, a training group for many top officials, organized a mass speed dating event for over 2,000 singles in the province of Zheijang.
  • In the same month, the All-China Women's Federation organized a similar event in the Gansu province for unmarried, single people in their late-20s.
