It has  been widely reported that thousands of single Indian men were kidnapped and forced into marriage!  Parents of Indian women who couldn't find husbands,  had resorted to kidnapping men for marriage.  It is the Indian custom for the bride's parents to pay  a dowry to the groom, and the dowry gets bigger as the daughter gets older.  In desperation to marry out their daughters before they get old  and to save on dowry, they had to resort to kidnapping men and forcing them to marry their daughters.
Leftover women in China might want to learn from their Indian counterparts.

You seem to be thinking Chinese females are desperate to meet a man to marry him. Not so. They are desperate only to get paid whether they give something in return or not, but these self-willed women don't seem to covet the money a marriage would earn them. They probably make more on their own.

While it is true they are financially indpendent, they are still desperate to get married due to parental and social pressure!  In China they lose face if they stay unmarried and parents with unmarried daughters at home also lose face, hence the urgency to get married to save face!  And because of this, many got cheated of huge sums of money by fraudsters offering marriage services!

Let them lose face. Many don't care, and nor should they. Losing face is not losing one's life or anything else that is important.
