Women in China looking for companionship can now cut through the hassle of meeting men, instead renting a boyfriend on e-commerce site Taobao for a set price, according to the Guangzhou-based Southern Metropolis Daily. The boyfriends are rented based on the services they provide to women, including holding hands, hugging and kissing. The temporary couples will typically go to movies, shopping, out to dinner, or another date chosen by the woman.

The price to rent a boyfriend varies. Ten yuan (US$2) is standard for a one-hour lunch. For an hour of shopping, the price doubles to 20 yuan (US$4). To rent a boyfriend for a full day, the cost can be upward of 100 yuan (US$15).

Most men who rent themselves out are looking for money, but some say they do it for love. A 28-year-old man from Foshan, Guangdong named Huang posted an ad with a high price of 500 yuan (US$79) to rent him. Huang says he hopes to find love and that if he finds a girl who really wants to marry him, he can adjust the price. One girl from Beijing has contacted him, but they have never met because of the distance between their homes.

It's really an embarrassment to any society who needs to advertise to get dates. It's sad enough that parents have to go to the park and post profiles of their ADULT kids on boards as a means to get dates for them. These people are so anti-social they can't even get dates for themselves. It's beyond sad, it's pathetic! Online dating is one thing, but when you have to charge / pay to get a date, that tells you what kind of society you're in. In the west, this is nothing more than prostitution. You don't need sex involved to have prostitution. It can be for any type of gain. Chinese people really need to rethink their social norms (and morals) regarding friendships, dating, romance, love, marriage, and everything in between. When your relationships become the subject of insincerity and desperation, you're already living in a society of fear, fraud and favoritism. Relationships of any kind should not be based on money or fraud. You might ask "how is this fraud?" Because most of these people are BUYING dates, just to show off in front of their parents, so their parents won't hassle them when they go back home for the new year. This is not genuine or sincere. It's not honesty; it's deceit. Therefore, it's fraud. But, this is China and this is why it's a flawed society. This is simply another example of why Chinese are not admirable, respectable, and retain no leadership qualities the world will ever respect, admire, condone or practice.
