"Is that special someone missing in your life? 
Soon that 25th birthday will roll around and you'll be nothing but leftovers.
Fear not!! The Shanghai Marriage Market is here for you! (…) With just your name, age, Chinese zodiac, height, weight, waist-size, photo, phone number and brief description (job, salary, whether you studied abroad and whether you own your own apartment or car), you'll find that Mr./Mrs. Right."

You will only need to put yourself out there (here).

"Recently, well-educated women in China with established careers are in less of a hurry to get married. They have more options than women in past generations and are not afraid to put their career first. This change in marriage ideology puts the women in a higher position of power within a traditionally male-dominated society. Now more women seek to find a responsible man with personal integrity instead of just a high paying job.
Many men's standards have changed with the progression of women's status in the work industry as well, they expect a woman that has been educated and well on her way to a career path. But what has drastically changed is the older generations viewpoint on the subject—they agree with the younger generation, with the two most important qualities in a wife being elegance and a decent career path, quite a change from diligence and the willingness to suffer the burden of life."
