Some Hong Kong women would rather die alone than date Hong Kong men
The truth is, neither men nor women want to settle for less than what they want—and Hong Kong men and Hong Kong women seem to want different things.

Hong Kong women have long been accused of being materialistic and eyeing money, but there is a reason for it. According to Fan Lai, a professional counselor who deals with relationship problems and family issues, few Hong Kong women are looking to marry a scion of a property tycoon. But, she added, many do aim for a man with a monthly income somewhere between HK$80,000 and HK$100,000 (roughly US$10,300 to US$12,900). That’s because they want a man who is financially independent and won’t turn around asking them for money or take advantage of them. “They are women who have a great education, a successful career, and a pretty face and just don’t want to settle for less,” Lai said.

Men who have a “good package” (this means, by the way, that they are physically attractive, with a sizable bank account and a promising career), she added, have complained to her that they are having greater difficulties in finding their Ms. Right.

“They mind women who are too career-driven,” said Lai. “They don’t mind women who have a job, but when it comes to looking for a marriage partner, they want someone who is willing to stay at home and raise the family.”

And that is simply unrealistic. “How is it possible for women who are smart, ambitious, and independent to surrender their freedom and become a stay-at-home mum?” Lai questioned.

A quick survey of my single female friends confirmed that they are unwilling to settle for less—and sadly Kong men are the worst to date, a conclusion that has nothing to do with their finances or physique.

“Kong men are not gentlemen at all,” said Lung. “If you go on a date, you pick up the girl, open the door for her, pick up the bill, and send her home. That’s very basic. And yet I’ve never seen a Kong man who has done it. But Western men do. I’m an international man eater, so I aim at a global market.”

One Is the Loneliest Number: China’s Single Population Nears 200 Million - China Real Time Report - WSJ
China is quickly becoming a nation of singles. There are nearly 200 million single adults in the world’s most populous country, accounting for 14.6% of the total population, according to local media reports, which cite data from China’s Ministry of Civil Affairs. The percentage has skyrocketed from 6% in 1990, reports say. China’s solo jump comes amid a rising divorce rate and a growing trend of delaying or opting out of marriage entirely, demographers say. Those that have postponed marriage have lived on their own or with family, developing happy, single lifestyles that they don’t want to give up. The percentage of singles is far behind some other countries. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported last year that 50.2% of the population is single. The unwed population in England and Wales reached 51% in 2011, according to U.K. Census reports. One reason it’s lower is that Chinese children are under intense pressure to marry. Older generations, which tend to be traditional and

There's an old Chinese saying "san shi er li" (stand at 30-years-old), which means that a person should be independent by the age of 30.
