Chinese Millionaires Seek Wives on Love Boat

posted by MR WAVETHEORY at 11/28/2006 12:59:00 AM
The new way of finding love in China is to find it on a "Love Boat." Fifty Chinese millionaires boarded a "Love Boat" in Shanghai to find themselves a wife, after selecting 3 potential "targets" from a book of choices.

"Love Boat" required the men who signed up for the cruise to be worth two million yuan - about 140,000 pounds. Most had 10 times that, putting them easily among China's half a million estimated dollar millionaires. Women had to be both exceptionally pretty and educated to degree level.

Most of the millionaires doing the choosing were men, but some were women. "I am already a member, and have found a 'target'," said Miss Lu, who owns a manufacturing business and arrived early in a white BMW. "But here I have one more chance to look at the field."
