I guess this happens in all cultures!
Not only do young Chinese women have to fret about finding a home to rent, they gotta worry about finding a boyfriend to rent! Societal & family pressure is so strong in China for women to be dating an eligible dude that females be resorting to hiring gigolos, er I mean, "rental boyfriends" to trick their family and co-workers! - especially during the Lunar New Year. Why we gotta be so hard on women!?
