Many rural villages in China are slowly becoming “bachelor villages”–towns teeming with single men with no hope of getting married.

In fact, Gao Po village is already being called as such since the single men there don’t have any prospects to marry there, nor even girlfriends to speak of. The bachelors here are desperately looking for wives.

This trend most likely will continue in other locations as well because Chinese men greatly outnumber Chinese women.

China’s one-child policy, which further reinforces the favoring of boys over girls, as well as the poverty in such provinces, has contributed to this sad situation.

Many single women would also rather work in cities than stay in these villages.
