A 30-year-old “leftover woman” from Hubei has become a minor internet celebrity after she revealed the stringent criteria that one lucky man must abide by if he hopes to be her future husband.
Su is looking for her future husband at the blind-date corner of People’s Park in Shanghai.
Su Jingjing was born in 1985 in a village of Xishui country, Hubei province. According to The Paper, she left her home town to find a job at the age of 18. She came to Shanghai in 2008. To date she has not been involved in any relationship.
When reporters got in touch to interview her, she was in the process of moving to a four-square-meter property located north of Shanghai South Railway Station. She now runs her small business from this venue.
Su told reporters that she began to feel the pressure to tie the knot after she turned 25. Every weekend since last August she goes to the People’s Park in Shanghai holding a sign which offers a brief self-introduction and lists her requirements.
Su holds the sign which lists what is required of her future husband.
The sign reads:
I was born in February, 1985 in Hubei province. I have a college degree. Both of my parents were from Bingcun village. My goal in life is the pursuit of excellence.
My hobbies are reading, writing, listening to music and doing sport. In addition, I can use computer and have my own business.
My srequirements for my future spouse are: He must live in the city centre of Shanghai. He was born in 1980 , 1981 or 1982. He should not wear glasses. He must have a good character. He must be taller 170cm. He must be the only child of a successful business man or government official.
Su stressed that she would not lower her standards, adding that Shanghai was a cosmopolitan city and must contain several eligible men.
“People tell me that I look good, unlike a woman born in 1985,” says Su.
“I don’t want to stay in Shanghai any more, but I’d like to find a man with money, power, virtue, good appearance and a Shanghai hukou.” Describing her future life to reporters, Su said “He is at least a rich second generation with ten million in capital. If he is a business man or government official, I’d like to immigrate with him to Hong Kong. Then we can run our own business from there together!”
Su says she won’t lower her standards no matter what.
