Over the weekend, two young entrepreneurial women visited West Lake to sell a very special product, themselves.
The two claimed to be single university students in Hangzhou hoping to use the spare time of their youth to accompany lucky lonely people to watch movies, eat out or go shopping. They held up homemade signs offering “rentals” and “dates.”
All in all, they seem to have attracted quite the crowd, though that could also have a lot to do with the mini national holiday break with scores of tourists descending on relatively less smoggy Hangzhou.
Unfortunately, their going rate is not known, though if you are looking to rent a girlfriend, it will probably be cheaper online. With parental pressures, fake significant others is a booming business in China especially during the holidays, sometimes it can be quite lucrative and can result in iPhones.
