Chinese man needs girlfriend

Single ladies out there, this is one good news! But to single men, it means more competition from our Chinese friends.

According to a recent government-funded research in China conducted by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, there will be a shortage of single woman in China by 2010. The proportion of man to woman will continue to increase leading to a higher number of single Chinese men. This is mainly due to an ancient Chinese practice from which couple put high preference to male offsring. There are many reported incidents of abortion once the couple discovered that they will be having a baby girl. Thus, gender imbalance became a critical issue for China and the world.

I just felt fortunate I was born in the Philippines where there are fewer boys. And every night is a real boy's night out!
