Dating agencies boom in China

Dating agencies grow in China as people find it difficult to find someone to marry.

    An increasing number of young Chinese people say they are having difficulty finding someone to marry.

    The situation has become worse due to the country's population control policy of one child per family.

    Now, specialised dating agencies have sprung up, catering to lonely hearts aged in their thirties or beyond.
