A woman, whose son was born in 1982, asks whether I have a daughter.Yes, I tell her, one that is the same age as her son.To work the crowd more actively, some parents wear their offsprings' resumes. The one-child policy plus the ease of finding out the gender of an in utero child, along with the ease of securing abortion, has led to a preponderance of marriage-aged men in this society, which placed a premium on sons at the time those featured in the resumes here were born.

Though I didn't exactly say I was looking for matches for my daughters, I didn't exactly say I wasn't.

Ever since first hearing about the matchmaking scene in Beijing's Zhongshan Park, I've been dying to check it out.

Parents pack up their resumes and low folding stools then head home to report the day's yield to their children.

What unusual methods of matchmaking do you know about?

This is most likely due to the fact that Chinese locals don’t do as much casual dating as we do in the US.

Meet thousands of local Beijing singles, as the worlds largest dating site we make dating in Beijing easy!

As a result, relationships progress and die faster than in real life. If I went on a blind date with Yue Xu, I would walk out of the room within 10 seconds. No, sorry lady, your 'winter expiration date' is up. " see a lot of foreigners in Beijing being extremely rude to the fuwuyuan..." Funny, in five years in Beijing I've never once seen this.

Also, it can get quite incestuous as the circle is small and gossip-ridden. The thing unique to Beijing is the addition of sexually curious local girls. The thing is, there’s a huge difference between guys who only date Asian and guys who just happen to date Asian. This world is sometimes too much for one person to handle. I'd say the locals set the global standard in being rude to waitstaff.

The father tells me his son is supportive of this search for a mate. Yet they are picky, given that the son speaks English and earns an excellent salary, around ,000 a month, working for Oracle.

This father, so proud of his son's achievements, pulls out a small hand-written resume and adds his home phone for me to contact him if one of my daughters should become interested.
