People's Daily dating services

OK, my headline isn't accurate, just too tempting. However, we do like this piece in the English People's Daily Online quoting an iResearch report and suggesting that the online dating market in China could be worth up to Rmb653 million (US$81 million) by 2008. We won't quibble with the Rmb3 million although that kind of lack of rounding in forecasts always makes us suspicious of unfiltered Excel extrapolations of existing data.

With the sex imbalance among China's one child families heavily favouring boys for many years, there will clearly be a great business opportunity in finding dates and mates for all those boys.
