Want to marry rich? Then the unlikely named Beijing Moral Education Center for Women is for you.
For 30 hours of training costing 20,000 yuan ($3,080), women keen to snag a billionaire, millionaire or even just an affluent man learn techniques to make them more attractive, from how to put on make-up in the most flattering way to how to spot a liar by looking at his facial expressions.
The school in the world’s second largest economy — home to 189 billionaires and just under one million millionaires — has attracted over 2,800 mainly middle class women since it opened in August last year, and students such as 23-year-old Zhou Yue believe it’s time and money well spent.
Lily Bing, 28, said she hoped the training would translate into better prospects. Students are taught conversation skills, personality development and traditional tea-pouring techniques, which convey elegance.
The center’s founder, Shao Tong, also teaches at the school, focusing on pointing out to students how to decipher a man’s character and personality.
She said the school was encouraging women to become the best they can be by giving them a goal that many in this rapidly developing country, with a huge increasingly affluent and aspiring middle class, strive for.
Wealthy eligible bachelors have approached the school in search of soulmates, and can spend up to 30,000 yuan as an introductory fee.
In the past few months, the school says it has successfully matched 30 couples that resulted in marriage.
Sounds like old school China? How about making your own money and then picking out who YOU want to date? LOL!
