Report Shows More Single Women Living in Shenzhen
An online report released a day before International Women’s Day shows that Shenzhen has the second highest number of single women at a marriageable age in China. From the 41,000 women surveyed, 39 percent were born in the 70s and 80s defined themselves as over aged and struggling to find a husband.
Xiamen, in Fujian province ranks first, having the largest number of single women, Guangdong ranks third with 36 percent. According to the report most of the women find it hard to look for a husband as the majority of them are highly educated and career driven. Also the lack of social interaction makes it harder to meet single men.
Other women choose to be single, saying they prefer to be single than living in a life of an unhappy marriage. From a different viewpoint, single males were also interviewed and most of them said that they also find it hard to look for compatible companions because the requirements that most women look for in a man are too high, while others are just too proud to go after the men they like.
