During the most recent trip organized by Chinese agent Golden Marriage in Vladivostok, a Russian city not far from Russia's borders with China, five of the 10 Chinese single men were matched successfully with a future spouse.As China and Russia usher in a sub-national cooperation exchange, the two countries are also extending their cooperation to nongovernmental levels and deepening their friendship through facilitating personal connections. With Chinese Ambassador to Russia Li Hui's public speech early this month highlighting that China and Russia are stepping into a new era, more Chinese agencies are catering to the dating interests of Chinese men seeking attractive Russian women."We usually send our Chinese clients to small Russian cities in the far eastern area, because it is economically less developed.Girls from these communities are more open to marrying a foreigner for better financial security," Tatyana explained."The authority has no political limitation on cross-border marriage, but, practically, we can only expect them to promote the nongovernmental contacts and youth interaction between the two countries here and now." In 2016, some Chinese matchmaking agents started to organize for their male clients — with "being financially successful" as the only selection criterion for participating — travel to Russia for romance and marriage, reported the newspaper.Regardless of the actual success rate, which is yet to be confirmed, the high expectation of those clients comes with high price tags."It is less common among my friends," said Chen, 25, who has spent five years in Russia and has a Russian girlfriend.
Tatyana, a Russian woman who owned a China-based dating agency, revealed to the Global Times that illegal agents even pay "Russian brides" to scam those men who crave exotic women during so-called singles' tours.Sick and tired of spending much time to find a good porn tube to have some kinky fun?Welcome to the The Best Tubes.com, your ultimate guide to porn.Stereotypes remain It is not the first time the media has highlighted the phenomenon of Chinese men marrying Russian women as a solution to China's "leftover men" issue."Chinese Husband Russian Wife = The Perfect Combination," an advert sponsored by China Radio International in Russian newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta, sparked controversy among Russians for eulogizing Chinese men's diligence, caring and loving natures, and sensitivity, of which Russian men are reportedly lacking partly due to their macho culture.
