Chinese dating and marriage
The women hook up with an “agency”, which is like a cyber-pimp or love broker.
The cyber-pimp gets them onto an online dating site and coaches them on what to do.
Such agencies claim to help bridge the cultural gap that stands in the way of men finding true love.
But what of such agencies, do they truly conspire with Cupid to find men their better half?
The woman’s family believes Larry to be their daughter’s better half. Perhaps it’s his openness to the new and different. He smiles at me and his eyes twinkle through patches of curly brown hair.“This is who I was to meet.” He points at the computer screen propped on bony knees and then glances at me. The hair from the top of her head had decided a mass migration was in order and retreated, leaving little in its wake. I thought that the Chinese kitten princess had sent her mom to scout things out. Larry was a victim of the old ‘switcheroo’ whereby a woman posts a pic of herself in her prime.
The foreigner takes an interest in a woman, but is having trouble communicating.(1)Got an itch for love that only a beautiful Asian bride can cure? Chinese brides are faithful, loving and most of all “treat their men with respect”.So reads the litany of ads seeking to match unsuspecting men with a “loving” Chinese bride.If the women are unattractive, they either mummify themselves in makeup or Photoshop their real pic.The job of the women is to remain online and try to hook an unsuspecting foreigner.One woman had told him that her true husband was in America and convinced him to buy her a round trip ticket to find the man and get a proper divorce. China has entire villages of women dedicated to the online dating trade.After ponying up the cash he never heard from her again. The goal of this scam is to get cash from unsuspecting foreigners.He later received an e-mail from the woman stating that they were not a good match but that she wanted to keep in touch with him so that he could help grammar check her work e-mails. You’ve been burnt so much here.” I pause.“I refuse to believe I won’t be taken advantage of…” his voice trails off.But that is the tip of the iceberg, he’s been taken for worse. Interestingly enough, these types of scams are not uncommon.And if you are that desperate, forgo the agency and just come to China.Take a satchel full of cash to a village in the northeast and you’re sure to meet a woman who is up to snuff and whose parents would willingly accept the dowry you offer.
