Money isnt everything? Bachelors dating profile went viral and


Zhang Kunwei, a well-educated bachelor who graduated from Tsinghua University's top experimental computer science class, has recently become an internet sensation after his dating profile on Chinese networking platform Douban inspired netizens to discuss what makes a man worth marrying. 

In late March, Zhang posted an introduction on Douban detailing his personal background, such as how he finished both bachelor's and master's programs at Tsinghua University, one of China's most prestigious educational institutions. 

He also labeled himself as "an ordinary man" even though most of his life experiences suggest he should be considered a social elite. For example, he now earns more than 50, 000 yuan ($7,600) a month and once worked for JPMorgan and Google before finally deciding to become a teacher in his hometown in North China's Shanxi Province. 

Zhang's post quickly went viral. Netizens were not only stunned by the fact that such a successful man could still be single despite his rather "ordinary" appearance as a man "who look older for his actual age." Others noted that Zhang's "problem" also reflects how women in China are no longer considering just wealth when looking for a mate, but are also factoring in appearance and personality. 

While welcomed the idea that evaluating a partner based on appearance is no longer solely a male privilege in today's Chinese society, other netizens remarked that placing too much value on appearance could make people feel insecure as well as shift social opinion even more toward the idea that someone has to have "good looks on top of everything else" in order to find love.

"Neither men nor women should suffer harsh criticism about their appearances. Calling someone fat, ugly or greasy says nothing about who that person really is but it does prove the person who says those things is shallow and ignorant," wrote one netizen on Sina Weibo in response to a post that called Zhang "ugly."
