Rental boyfriends are temporary solutions to nosy relatives2/8/2013
Single ladies in China apparently face lots of pressure the longer they go without someone putting a ring on it. Social stigma for unmarried ladies over 30 can prompt withering questions from family and friends, and the pressure really mounts around the Lunar New Year. So how to get those pesky interrogators off your back? Rent a boyfriend. Boyfriend rentals reportedly are becoming increasingly prevalent in China, where women can hire dudes to act as plus-ones for social events to throw snooping relatives off the scent. The faux partners can be customized: different rates for dinner, a kiss or even spending the night at her family’s place (no nookie involved) for the holiday. [Source]
