From Morning H:
Perhaps no men are under more pressure than the men in the cities. Even there are some men in the cities are always relaxed, most of the men are under pressure, slowly attempt to get even closer to the center of the city. The excitement of the city living and expanding buries many men’s sweat and tears.
1. Shanghai – difficult to find a wife
Whether if it is the strong anti-foreign sentiment or the growing pressure to buy a house, is enough to make the men in this country’s largest economic center to bend their backs even more.
2. Beijing – gap between the poor and the rich
Locals and a group of senior cadres and officials, high-tech talents are securely occupying the heart of the city. Artists, celebrities and entrepreneurs dominate the golden suburb areas, only a small region which is divided into many districts by the sky-high housing prices.
3. Guangzhou – feeling of a drifter (漂泊感, piaobo=drift)
60% of the men living in this city have one goal: make enough money and then go home.
4. Shenzhen – fragile love + crazy housing prices
Half of its population is foreigners, with more women than men, but to men, emptiness and pressure are their best friends because the housing prices of 40, 50 thousand per square meter can turn love into fragile things.
5. Chongqing – known for beauties, but mostly for exports
The men in this city, salary is not high, housing price is not low, and quite a few pretty girls, but not many will be interested in you.
6. Wuhan – too many talents
Too many men with science and engineering background gather here, and it created a serious imbalance of the ratio of men and women.
7. Tianjin – can’t afford houses + health
There is serious pollution in Tianjin old town. It is even difficult to protect your own health while enduring the torment.
8. Hong Kong – all kinds of pressures
9. Taiwan(Taipei) – face+ political pressure
Taiwanese men’s pressures are not coming from housing prices or money which is not earned, but are coming from fear of not admitted into a good university, not having a good job and afraid of being looked down on.
10. Changsha – stay home or go out = both difficult
In this place once were called the city of entertainment, the size of the house and the housing price are the most important issues except for entertainment. People are actually embarrassed, because wages in Changsha are not very high, they have to make a tough choice between staying home until they die of old age or be forced to leave their homes (in order to make more money).
