CHINA - After the much publicised 'Singles Day' on Nov 11 in China, many single men and women are eagerly seeking a partner to shake off singlehood.
Weibo, a popular social media website in China has become a means to look for prospective marriage partners.
Two eligible singles have used Weibo to seek love recently, each successful in gathering interest but their quests for love have also highlighted other social issues in China.
In Fuzhou, a 27-year-old female lawyer with a pretty face and modelesque figure recently posted a blog entry on Weibo, yearning to be married.
She lists attributes she's looking for in a partner: a man below 35 years old, at least 1.8m tall, with a compatible personality who lives in the same city.
Alluring photos of the lawyer posted throughout her blog has attracted a lot of attention and her blog entry received numerous replies from admiring male netizens.
She has cited her 1.76m height as a main obstacle in finding a partner. Others have observed that her other qualities such as good looks and musical talent makes her a very eligible marriage partner.
In the Chinese culture, compatible social statuses are paramount in a marriage. It is not difficult to see why some Chinese males may not feel confident in pursuing such an eligible female partner.
