Twenty years ago, it was more common for Taiwanese singles to marry mainland Chinese people than the other way around. But with China's rapid economic takeoff and the opening of cross-strait relations, instead of Taiwanese people looking for love in China, mainlanders with high incomes are coming to Taiwan to look for the suitable partners, according to the China Times, our Chinese-language sister newspaper.

The Chungli Happy Relationship Center has received 10 cases from China in the past six months, of both male and female candidates hoping to find true love in Taiwan.

Xu Nai-yi, the director of the center, who has been a matchmaker for nearly 30 years, said China's wealthy have launched a "counterattack" on Taiwan's marriage market, causing him to sigh with emotion. "In the past, Taiwan was full of rich people, and China's women were rushing to marry Taiwanese men. Now the situation is reversed."

He said he once led a group of 24 single Taiwanese men to Beijing, who were welcomed by more than 600 women in a hotel in Beijing.

"This is unlikely now," said Xu. The "glorious era" has passed, he continued, saying he used to receive hundreds of inquiries from Chinese marriage seekers every month, but now the volume has declined drastically. The background the marriage seekers mostly were from rural villages in the past, but now there are lots of men and women from major cities such as Shanghai with high incomes and white-collar jobs.

Among the recent inquiries Xu has received, there are businesspeople who have studied abroad, as well as a doctor-to-be seeking a nurse. One woman with a master's degree expressed that Taiwanese men are more considerate than men in China, yet she stressed that after marriage, they have to live in China, she cannot accept staying in Taiwan.
