“No Car No House” Song, Chinese Leftover Women Version

"No Car No House" Chinese Leftover Women version.

The following viral video on has accumulated over 1.5 million views since it was uploaded 2 days ago (on International Women’s Day!) onto popular Chinese online video-sharing website Youku. There are over 5,600 comments in response to it spanning 188 pages, as well as over 20,000 downvotes (vs. over 3,400 upvotes). Not only was it one of the most popular videos on Youku for the day and week, it spread on popular Chinese social networks like RenRen, Pengyou, and QQ, as well as popular Chinese discussion forums. Copies of the video also appear on other popular Chinese video sharing websites like Tudou and 56.

Leftover women (剩女, shèngnǚ) became an official Chinese word in 2007 and refers to women who are older in age (usually the post-70s generation), have higher incomes, and are still unmarried. They tend to have higher expectations of their potential partners.

From Youku:

Eye-popping! A leftover women version of “No Car No House” that will make the leftover men vomit blood

Last year that leftover men version bachelor song “No Car No House” seemed to be very popular, but after watching it, it made me feel very resentful, because isn’t it obviously despising us leftover women!? Men without cars or houses thinking we’re unkind and and we’re hurting their feelings? Haha, be more realistic! Because society is realistic like this! A man who makes money is fulfilling his responsibility, whereas a woman earning money adds to her value! Don’t accuse us of worshipping money [or chasing money, gold-digging], there’s no crime in worshiping money! I made a leftover women version bachelorette song with my fellow sisters, so guys open your eyes and watch closely!

Lyrics and English translations:

多情的阳光 洒落在你的脸庞
Warm sunshine, shining on your face
看看周围的小伙 个个都挺娘
Looking at the young guys all around, every one of them are very girly

女人的渴望就是要有车和房
Having a house and a car is what women long for
嫁对人是最大的愿望
Marrying the right person is the biggest wish

问你有没有车问你有没有房
Asking you if you have a car, asking you if you have a house
我妈妈她也问你存折有几张
My mother will also ask you how much savings you have

假如你没有车 假如你也没有房
If you have no car, if you also have no house
赶紧靠边别把路来挡
Hurry move aside and don’t block my way

我也有车 我也有房
I also have a car, I also have a house
还有人民币在银行
As well as RMB in the bank

你们要是还没有我强
If you guys aren’t even as capable as me
别吃软饭我不是你的娘
Don’t depend on me, I’m not your mother

你没有车 你没有房
You don’t have a car, you don’t have a house
别想把美女泡上床
Don’t expect to get a beauty into bed

装穷哥你不就开个破宝马
Pretending to be poor, you only drive a lousy BMW
别装大款你把我来包养
Don’t pretend you’re a rich guy who can keep me as his mistress

x2

你没有车 你没有房
You don’t have a car, you don’t have a house
你还想结婚当新郎
Yet you still want to get married and be a groom

如果你生活都没奔小康
If your life isn’t well off
凭什么我和你去流浪
Why should I accompany you in wandering

你说我现实我承认也无妨
You say I am realistic/practical, that I may as well admit
骂我拜金我也不受伤
You can call me a gold-digger and I won’t feel hurt

男人总得有个男人的模样
A man after all should be like a man
没车没房 你别想找新娘
Without a car, without a house, forget about finding a bride

Comments from Youku:

抚过你脖间:

吐 This kind of woman who only has money in her eyes deserves to become a leftover woman~ How serious do you think a man would treat a woman who only cares for his money?

cjjdk:

Where did they find all these er nai [mistresses]?

至尊宝熊哥:

Actually, even those with money would not find these kind of women, each and every one of them frivolous to the extreme~~~

旺旺奔奔:

A fellow brother next to me angrily said after watching: Forget the fact that I already have a house and a good car, even if I didn’t, I wouldn’t pursue these women, their mentality is so ugly; With so many good girls in the world, it isn’t as if they’re all that is left, [they're] so smug. This brother has a healthy attitude/is a credit to men everywhere.

ADOへ跑跑:

The lyrics are very realistic. Men, stop deceiving yourselves, go work harder..

zhangboye:

A bunch of stupid cunts.

起来!前进!:

Ugly looks, ugly voices, each and every one of the like whores, and the only one that looks relatively good dresses like a man, a bunch of tone deaf no intelligence stupid cunts making fools of themselves… Even if I had money I wouldn’t give it to your kind of trash to spend. If I had a house, I’d use it to raise a dog than let your kind of trash live in it. If I had a car, I wouldn’t let your kind of trash ride in it either. Even running you over I would think is dirtying my tires. Truly TM disgusting…

童鞋198:

Each and every one of you look like shit. Making fools of yourselves… If you want to make a name for yourself, don’t come on Youku. [Instead] find a director to make a show with you in it, and then see if you girls are capable of becoming famous…

gsl1979:

无语 On behalf of men, I despise you.

含笑脉脉:

Ugh!!! Apart from being dumbfounded there is only being more dumbfounded! Work hard, men shouldn’t use not working hard as an excuse for not having money or a car! However, one should still be cautious against this kind of transaction-style relationship! Jia you! After we’ve established our foundations [career, assets], let’s find the most pure-hearted most beautiful girls under the sky!!!

叉烧油鸡饭:

…I laughed.

国防加油:

Each and every one of them looking like dog farts, demanding this demanding that.

杰克再见:

We don’t marry you, we only play you. 搞笑

Devil泪:

吐 [It's] 38 Day [International Women's Day], so I’m not going to bicker/bother with them.

舆论撒:

Sigh, I too don’t have a car or a house, and the saddest thing is, I also don’t have any RMB.
Fuck, happy bachelorhood.

指间杀戮 :

Though there isn’t anything really inappropriate/improper about wanting a man to have a car and a house, you have to give men some time. It isn’t that easy to have a car and house before 30 for a man without background [a wealthy or powerful family/connections].

guanxue:

Without a car or house, one can’t afford to find this kind of woman. With a car and a house, one can’t help but look down on this kind of woman.

abc168666: (responding to ADOへ跑跑)

Yes, I very much agree.

很想作神仙:

Women after 30 are worn-out lousy leftovers, those with money would only look for 17 or 18-year-olds. 搞笑

积木卡卡:

Oh fuck! Am I in the wrong place? Isn’t this Jurassic Park? There are dinosaurs running everywhere!

笑翰:

I don’t have a car nor a house, but I have a woman, who happens to be better than you girls, why is this? Is it because you girls aren’t good enough? Because money is too important for you girls?

monkeychaos:

The most tragic thing for a man is: The woman who will soon be your wife in the past gave her body to another man in who knows what 40 kuai per night [RMB] motel and now she’s run to you asking for a 10,000 [RMB] per square meter house and a 200,000 [RMB] car before she marries you!!!! Some of you women (read carefully that I said some of you women) should ask yourselves if you are worthy of being someone’s wife, are virtuous enough, if you will support your husband and raise the children, if you are a loving wife and a good mother, see if you are worthy of the that house and car!!!!

消灭流氓

When I bought my car and house, they were all new and never used before. Which one amongst you haven’t been used before? Those that have been used before, don’t have so many demands… Brothers who support me, give me a ding.

秒飞伟大:

What kind of women are these? Give a little equality and they’ve become like this! I say women in the old days were better. Sigh.

And there’s even an androgynous one.

Dagle:

Men with money are not free ATMs, much less dummies. Most gold-diggers end up being playthings for wealthy men. When they become old (after 30) and [their looks] decline, just don’t go complain that men are ruthless. because no man would have real feelings for a gold-digger. Women must not mistake men’s sexual desire for love. Men value “justice”, and if your wealth wasn’t earned through hard work, how can you talk about “justice”? One can’t have their cake and eat it too, unless you’re stunningly beautiful, the best in the world. Men shouldn’t blame women for chasing money, because chasing money is not a crime; Women too should not hate men for seducing and discarding women, for being lustful, because playing women is not wrong, and in transactions of sex and money, men and women are equal/fair.

丶陌生亼:

无语 Money isn’t the foundation for happiness, it is just a living necessity only. Even though I don’t have money and am not a rich man, but as long as I have the love of my family, the friendship of my friends, and the love of my lover., then that is enough! Having these things is happiness! Wealth is created through intelligence and hard work, and excessive luxury is not necessary! (Also remember that no matter how rich one is, they still rely on the peasants/farmers for their survival. Why? Because I trust that no matter how wealthy someone is, they wouldn’t go eat money when they’re hungry, right?)

amlpazq:

after watching this, I really threw up the breakfast I just ate, really.
I originally wanted to go the toilet to take a shit but all of a sudden I don’t have the urge anymore.
The stuffy nose from a cold that has been troubling me the past few days also suddenly cleared up.
Finally, if I may offer some advice to you bunch of dinosaurs (even dinosaurs are more beautiful than you girls): I can drive any lousy car to the front of a university and there will immediately be beautiful girls throwing themselves at me.
You girls want a car and a house, at least first go get some plastic surgery.

chenchuang521:

Holy fuck, I almost threw up. Are these women? Look at yourselves and you want cars and houses? You would be lucky to have anyone want you at all. Don’t block us manly men’s way~~ I’m in a nightmare…

Do you think these "Leftover Women" care too much about money or are just being realistic?

  • Bo Wang

    Sofa. Also, girl in pics is hot.

    • 老外

      I truly believe a man and woman should marry because they love each other. Most lazy/poor men just need the proper motivation to push them into a hard-working frenzy. Love and Responsibility (marriage, wife, children, etc…) almost always turns the laziest son of a bitch into a hard worker.

      I really feel very bad for Chinese men. I personally wouldn’t touch any of these women with a 10 foot pole. I wouldn’t even want to dirty my penis with their gold-digging snatches.

      A lot of women — especially in the U.S. — just want security, but they end up setting their standards WAY too high. And they end up alone, or single moms.

      When my friend was younger, he didn’t have too many long-term relationships because he didn’t have a car or house and still lived with his mother (ugh). Most women refused to give him the time of day.

      One day, he decided to learn Chinese as a hobby, and he met a Chinese lady (born in China, moved to America when she was 16), and they talked nonstop. They began dating after a while. She encouraged him to go to college and become successful, to work hard and do better in life, and they eventually married. Since then, he’s acquired 2 cars, 2 houses and plenty of reserve cash — all before he was 30. They are very comfortable together.

      It was funny to watch all the women who refused him before. They were throwing themselves all over him because of his new-found success, but he told them all to get lost. They all missed out on a very comfortable life… I’m jealous of him!

      So before you write off that shy, introverted loser with no house or car, consider that if he loves you, you’ll easily motivate him to become successful. You may have difficult times in the beginning, but what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

      Of course, there are some people who can’t be motivated no matter what… but I think they’re the exception rather than the norm.

      • Irvin

        Inspiring story, thanks. I now have a new found determination to get that car and house lol

        p.s. just notice fauna’s ad.

        “Leftover women and men. Personals @ chinaSMACK.” lol I love her sense of humor.

        • Bo Wang

          I thought Fauna’s a dude.

          • PeterScriabin

            Any evidence one way or the other? Don’t hurt yourself thinking too much. Might cut down on your daily output of useless posts.

      • vince

        This is a great example of what can be achieved when a woman stands by her man and gives the proper encouragement, your friend and his wife are perfect for each other. Those other women were too materialistic and selfish only caring about their present gain instead of thinking long term, sadly quite a few women have this mind set, especially this group of future spinsters that shot the video.

      • Mr Huu

        Scary! Great example what Chinese women do to you: they push and push you around, try to mold you. Like this fellow who went to college etc. And yep, the real reason came up: now he has money money house, not only one but two cars. So how did his gf differ from these girls in the funny video?

      • Wade

        two houses, two cars, reserve cash, and a shitload of debt. the american dream

        • 老外

          He’s debt-free. I’m even more jealous.

          • Wade

            right…. he paid for two houses, two cars, and college loans in cash. your friend is the hardest working drug dealer in town.

          • Chris

            Pimping ain’t easy when you are driving a rental Camry.

        • 老外

          Drug dealer? He’s making about $150,000 per year as an IT professional.

          • donscarletti

            “…as an IT professional.” Wow, an IT professional, amazing that his expertise can be so commercially valuable without having a specialization narrow enough to mention, rather than simply saying he is an unspecified professional in a large industry.

          • mx

            well. the problem of the story is not just it sounds fake, but it’s also extremely cheap and boring.” disney from 20 years ago does a better job. try harder, put in some turns and surprises. and yes more details will help. just make some up, it’s not difficult.

      • FYIADragoon

        It’s actually very true. The average man needs these things to encourage those hands to move faster and work harder. Its a bit hard in my opinion to encourage a man to work hard when he’s just going to die alone or get the leftovers of alpha males at age 30. Chinese women after the late 80s and all of the 90s have just been incredibly spoiled, and because of this assume that the position men are at when they’re typically 30 years old should be where they’re at at 20 years of age. I don’t even think many Chinese guys are pedos anymore for dating way down in age. Their women are just b*tches and don’t know what realistic expectations are.

      • mistyken

        Exactly. that kind of reminds me of the story of Guo Wei the emperor of later Zhou, how she encouraged and guided the once penniless foot soldier and shaped him into the emperor he later became. In the end, he even passed the throne down to her nephew.

    • http://www.michaelcassidy.ws Lotta’ Green

      Yes she is, and she looks like the girl dancing in the hair salon, “Shake your booty[money maker]“

  • eattot

    hmm, i love the short red hair girl at the end. yummy!
    good, all girls inside are pretty and stylish, yummy!
    bad thing is nowadays there are more excellent women than men. good guys are already taken away in university, sigh!
    why i did not understand this early? sigh, but i was not into guys.

    • B-real

      me niether we can join forces and be heteral, how bout would you give a bloat some dome?

    • Foreign Devil

      Eattot you are obviously a lesbian. Not that there is anything wrong with that! You will be happy when you just forget about guys and pursue girls.

      • eattot

        no, i am not.
        just women understand women more. most men i know are very lazy in my hometown, they ruined women’s life.
        since men judge women by looks, why women can not judge men by money?

        • vince

          Because it is unrealistic to make such a comparison, looks are something that an individual is born with not acquired (unless you count plastic surgery) unlike money. Also if it was a handsome poor guy and a rich ugly guy that you would have to choose between, who would you go for? Men judge women by looks and vice versa but men are much less discriminating. Read this article it will open your eyes http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1561991/Men-seek-beauty-women-want-wealth.html I’m not sexist but having been with different Chinese women i know what i am talking about, also the red head is clearly a baby dyke.

          • B-real

            Yeah that bitch is fo sho a dyke with the wanna be lesbo on her lap. Shooting that video made her ball of nerve tingle.

            LMBAO!

        • Marsvin

          It’s fair, but you have to ask yourself is that what you want? In my country many women judge men by their money, and many men judge women by their looks, but there are also many men and women who reject that and only look for love.

          Even if most men or women are materialistic, you can still find real love with others.

          • jk

            if a guy goes to college n gets a mba, n earns loads of cash. obviously he is gonna find a gal at the same equal level. not some gal in a village who doesnt know shit right? so its d same as gals, if ur educated and doing well of coz u want a guy at d same lvl. if a guy does it , it doesnt matter, but if a gals does it shes a b!tch? damn

  • Mimi

    Before coming to Shanghai I could never have imagined something like this outside of a comedy show… I know a few girls like this now though… It’s probably a good thing they won’t have children. What kind of value would they grow up with?

    • Irvin

      The problem with chinese women is: they were taught economic values and not cultural or personal values

      Where I grew up, I was first taught about values as honesty, integrity, loyalty, love, intelligence, freedom, sense of justice, cooperation etc.

      The thing about economic and personal values is: money can be burned, stolen or robbed. But things like integrity will be with you as long as you drawn breath.

      Things like integrity and freedom are more just mere words, they are perspective! and ideals. They are what topple kingdoms and corrupt governments. And that is what we should value more.

    • pengyou

      I still think that this is just a sarcastic skit.

    • Chris

      Eh. Isn’t that like a double standard? Men judge women by looks for eons. So now women have the ability to judge men? Let them. If they set the bar too high, that’s their own fault, just like the guys who all want to marry super models.

      Wants to call you on the telephone baby, a-give you a ring
      But each time we talk, I get the same old thing
      Always no hugg-ee no kiss-ee until I get a weddin’ ring
      My honey my baby, don’t put my love upon no shelf
      She said don’t hand me no lines and keep your hands to yourself

      B-b-b-baby baby baby why you wan’ treat me this way
      You know I’m still your lover boy I still feel the same way
      That’s when she told me a story, ’bout free milk and a cow

      But that’s when she started talking about true love,
      started talking about sin
      And I said, honey I’ll live with you for the rest of my life,
      She said no hugg-ee no kiss-ee until you make me your wife-a

  • staylost

    I don’t have a problem with the requirement that their life partner be hard working, but…

    It sounds kind of disturbing hearing money = manliness.

    Maybe it is just western culture, but I always thought manliness has to do with strength of character and body, vision, and being able to carve an existence out of nature.

    Sometimes Chinese pop culture makes me think manliness is makeup, a soft face, and cash, like a stereotypical effeminate Hollywood bad guy.

    • B-real

      Not since the womens movement of the 60s has money ever = manliness. But for a women to bring home more money than the man in the house can go either way. But in today’s time women are more than likely making allot of more money than men do and some men brag about it. I don’t know any man that is bothered by being out earned, I know I wouldn’t be.

      I can say after living here and marrying 1 one these bitches from China. Making allot of money is soley the man’s job. Acquiring the house, buying the car, paying taking care of her parents if need be. I see everyday amongst chinese alike. Money = extreme amounts of responsibility for the chinese man. I give lots of respect to the average china man for not killing himself or his family just to get some fucking relief, with that said the chinese man is stronger in a different way.

      • staylost

        Oh, I don’t mean to imply that the Chinese man isn’t strong. They are much like men from any other part of the world.

        Rather, it is the type of man pop Chinese media likes to portray as being attractive that has these weird characteristics.

        I might also add that the constant portrayal that it is not the man’s responsibility to do anything with his children also throws me off.

        In fact, in China Daily this week an expert in an article in divorce simply stated that women need to be more devoted to their families and then China will be harmonious. I can just imagine some Chinese government/business men’s club having a sex party with their mistresses to celebrate the expert’s ideals.

        • B-real

          Essentially that is true. If you look at the typical Chinese family they are what we call in the US a “latch key family” with the Grand parents supervision because they are always working to provide what they never had. The problem with this is children are now starting to develop emotional voids with their immediate families. Emotionally malnourished children transcend that with their offsprings or worse socially disconnected with the rest of civilization rendering them unable to form a real bond with a spouse or procreate for that matter.

          As far as divorce goes, no one should stay in loveless home for the sake of keeping the family together. That’s a very toxic environment and can only make things worse unless you can play it off until the little bugger is old enough to understand and cope. Mistresses, hookers, fuck buddies are all evils needed for the sake of the man involved in his more or less empty existence whose sole purpose is to provide in a non-recipricating marriage.
          In today’s time love between a man and a woman is unconditionally conditional.

    • Scytheria

      @staylost – Oh, don’t you dare say this is something China has accidentally polluted itself with from Western culture. I’ve lived in the UK for the last 15 years and travelled Europe and the US widely. The consumerist craze is long dead in the West, and people there are far more practical about things. I live in a 50-year old house and drive a second-hand car, as do most people. My baby is dressed in hand-me-down clothes, and when we eat out we look for the restaurant with the cheapest offer on. Do we do this because we are poor? Not at all – we do it because we despise senseless waste and abhor flashing money around. What you are doing is mistaking the imaginary Hollywood culture for the real Western culture, which is all about strength of character and body, vision, and being able to carve an existence out of nature.

      • Thor

        Not to mention that flashing your money around is likely to get you into a lot of trouble : multiple robberies for instance.

  • John Wayne

    Simply put; GOLD DIGGERS!! Stay away as far as possible.

    • Alikese

      “Now I ain’t sayin’ she a gold digger. But she ain’t messin’ with no broke niggas.”

      I can say that when it’s in a song lyric, right?

      • darkandlovelykissedbythe

        I was tempted to post the link to this song, but decided not to because of the N work.

        I do wonder what ever happened to marrying someone for love, and working together to make it? Everyone wants to marry someone who will also be successful, but it should not be the sole reason for marriage. In many cases the computer nerd, the geeky guy who starts out with nothing, might be successful in the long run.The not so handsome guy who doesn’t have much, may be perfect in every other way.

        Women have to think about success for themselves because in todays world she might be single, or end up divorced. It is important to have a standard for yourself, but someone’s value is not all tied up in money. A good hard working man who values and respects women is worth more than gold.

        Money helps to make some things in life easier, but if I had to choose between love with someone who values me as a person, and someone I don’t who has money, I would definitely choose someone who does not have money that loves me. I figure together we can make it.

          Ah yes, ever since Eddie Murphy’s standup heyday in the 1980s, the trick has been the same. Make sure your act is just racist enough so that nobody notices the sexism that constitutes the other 90% of the act. Kanye obviously handles it perfectly.

  • Foreign Devil

    You have to offer financial security to marry them but fucking them is free! Also this “home and car” rule usually doesn’t apply to foreigner guys. Most of these girls are going to be single and lonely for life. Their chances don’t improve with time. I know lots such girls.

    • bert

      lol they probably dont have a home and car requirement for foreigners, because the foreigners provide a way to get citizenship and a way out of china for some chinese women. Obviously this scenario does not apply to everyone.

    • Irvin

      What baffles me is: they already got car and house, why the fuck they need the guy to have it too? isn’t that redundant?

      • Foreign Devil

        @ Irvin

        Reminds me of my former Chinese roomate. He and his wife both had really good jobs and earned lots of money, living the good life. But she divorced his ass because she believe in CHinese tradition that the man should at least make twice as much money as the woman.

  • Tom12GA

    The old requirements for a man to marry in China were that he had to have a wristwatch (as a sign that he was responsible), a bicycle (so that the couple could get around) and a sewing machine (so that his wife could make their clothes).

    Now, there isn’t very much that you’ll attract with the list of items above. It reminds me about Hong Kong, 10 years ago, when I was told that young ladies required their potential suitor to possess the four C’s: Cash, Car, Condo & Credit Card

    • Mat890

      Most Chinese women are whores (by trade or by mentality). I have been here for a couple of years and I’ve met dozens of them. Only a hand-full are honest and worth it.

      Marrying a Chinese woman is just like falling into a trap. They’re not worth it. Only ugly foreign men (typically German Engineers in their 40s and up) want to find a Chinese woman. Foreigners, keep your love and your money for foreign women!

      • holy sheet

        @Mat890

        You mustn’t been with women much. Since you’ve been overseas for so long, do yourself a favor by googling Kimberley Conrad or Anna Nicole Smith for starter.

        Hang out for a day at a divorce court in downtown L.A. Come back and let us know how those foreign women fare.
        Answer: They are legally taking half of your shit and your left nut, only difference is that they have to marry you first. And ass clowns like you thought foreign women marry for love.

        Don’t degrade Chinese women you dumb foreign shit, just stick with fantasy football for now.

    • Alikese

      I think a lot of it has to do with their parents. Once a Chinese person hits 22-25 their parents start ragging on them to get married and have a kid to continue the family line. I’m sure if they were left to their own devices many of them would choose not to get married.

    is this is an ad for worn out 30+ year old mistresses? Do i get a discount if i take em all?

  • Irvin

    I would rather peddle wares with someone that love me than have a house and car with one of these bitches. But it’s fine, women with their thinking will die out in a generation or two because in the end darwin always wins.

    The ones that don’t care too much about house and cars will breed while unfertilized eggs of these bitches slowly dries up.

    There used to be a girl I really love, I was still in uni. no car no house and no money. After I graduate I asked her to marry me and build a life together, she rather have someone that already have the foundation and left.

    I was depress for 2 months, then I say fuck it and went to the whore house. And there is where I got my enlightenment, there are 10 girls lining up for me to pick to fuck, only 400rmb each with discount for 3 some, and all of them looks at least 2 times prettier than my ex.

    I realized that some women are just cheap and doesn’t deserve our heart, and marriage isn’t an obligation. If I can’t find someone that put more value in love over wealth. I’ll be contend to be a bachelor for the rest of my life while frequenting the whore house when I’m horny.

    My brothers, don’t let these bitches from the vid. put you down. They may have superficial wealth, but they’re morally bankrupt and cheap inside.

    Reminds me of the end scene from Mummy 2 somehow. The hero’s wife rush through danger to safe him while the villain’s girl ran off. The camera pans to his wedding ring which was a nice touch, it emphasize what a marriage should be.

    • pervertt

      The picky girls are usually the ones in their mid-30s moaning about “where have all the good men gone?” They will complain – life is unfair – how come a less attractive woman has managed to land a good catch, whereas they can’t? Eventually, they have to lower their expectations and make compromises after their net worth in the marriage marketplace (ie. their physical beauty) has gone down. So unfair.

      They do not realise that their smarter (sometimes less pretty) sisters succeeded because they were more decisive in choosing a mate. Rather than wait for a perfect candidate to turn up, they made their move early (often in uni or soon after that) while their net worth in the marriage marketplace was at its peak. They picked their future husbands based on a shrewd assessment of his looks and personality (obviously on display) and on his future earning potential (not always obviously on display). The house and car can come later, and often it does if their assessment has been right.

    Reminds me of an old joke:

    An old gentleman is seated next to one of these leftover young ladies and engages her in conversation. Suddenly he says, “Would you sleep with me for a million rmb?” . The lady blushes, but seeing the humor in the request, agrees. The old gentlemen then says, “Well, would you sleep with me for five dollars?”

    “Certainly not!” she says, now offended. “Just what kind of woman do you think I am?”

    “Madam, we’ve already established what you are. Now we’re just haggling over the price.”

    I know Chinese men who are unmarried and one of them has plenty of money and privately, I think these men should not be married to anyone. They want to be married for selfish reasons but they would really make their wives suffer because they have weak self centered personalities. They were born too late. In feudal China, they would have been given arranged marriages that they did not deserve.

    Oh, well. Girls have always been judged for marriage but men have always been raised to believe that they are entitled to a French Maid wife.

    As pitiful as it is to die alone and unloved, you would not wish unmarriageable men on your own daughter. They are not defensible. And I don’t mean their money is not good enough. It’s much better for the future of people if marriage is only love based.

      I agree about this being a wonderful Chinese lesson if you are at a certain stage (which I am, too!), but I can’t be bothered to type it all out.

      Instead, you can get the PinYin by going to this dictionary. Then, cut/paste the lyrics at the bottom of this post into the “Translate” box, and click the Chinese–>English button. Then, just read down the PinYin column. Hope this helps. (By the way, ignore the Google translation into English, unless you want a good laugh!).

    I think everyone of those women are UGLY. I mean honestly, if I were a man with money, I wouldn’t even want them as a mistress, they are wearing so much makeup you could scrape it off their faces…so much eye makeup and foundation and weaves….disgustingly fake. I bet without the makeup, those women would look very, very, very ugly. I mean come on, I see better looking women walking around Wal-Mart in America without any makeup on than these women…so ugly. Inside and out. Chinese men, go marry a foreign women….With the exception of Hollywood and some other major cities, American women marry for love and put money lower on their list than Chines women, who all seem to be gold digging money grubbers who don’t mind ether being a slutty mistress wrecking homes or will willingly open their legs to any man who throws some RMB their way….grossness.

  • FML

    My girlfriend’s parents have 6 houses, have top positions in the government, and a single daughter. They also have 3 cars. I, as the man in the relationship, am expected to buy a car and a house before marriage, despite the fact that I have only lived and worked in China for 2 years. Since they view her as “old meat”, spoiling more and more everyday, they expect me to marry her at the ripe young age of 24. I have a feeling it will cost the relationship, as the expectations are simply out of reach. Even the houses that I could afford would be out of the question for her family.

    The lesson is, never date a rich Chinese girl.

    • donscarletti

      The Chinese guys I know tend to value rich girls a lot, there is more competition because Chinese guys know who will be getting those six houses later. Also, remember if you are married to her, you can pretty much do whatever you want and mummy and daddy in law will clean up the mess, great for doing business and making more money.
      Western dudes don’t think that way of course, to your average western guy I think it is pretty shameful to live off the wife’s parents, but this is not the Chinese way. If you love her and want to marry her, don’t worry so much about the money, take out a loan and buy whatever you have to, you’ll get the money back. If you don’t love her, find a new one.

  • Chris

    I don’t get it. What’s the big deal?

    These girls sing about what they feel is the minimal requirement for dating/marrying someone. So what? We all got these bars. I, for example, will never date someone with canker sores around their vulva. It’s just something that I need from my partner. Now, these women might set their bar high, but that’s their problem.

    I don’t get why people are acting like women saying having financial stability makes the man more attractive. Why do you think doctors and lawyers are often portrayed as wanted spouses in chick flicks? Let me tell ya, it’s not for the looks. I know. I go to class with 200 of them every day (sure as hell isn’t for their personality in some rare individuals too).

    Frankly, statistics on divorces also implies that marriage based on finances are actually more stable than those on “feelings”.

    I’m not saying there is no room for romance, but damn, even a job interview at McDonald’s have basic requirements, why can’t these women?

    • k

      I think it’s the fact that these women are willing to sacrifice other things just for the money and the big home and the fancy car and the shopping and name brands, etc,. Also the fact that these women aren’t humble, they aren’t charming, they’re calculating…..They’re only looking for men to prey money from instead of earning it themselves. These women want men to pay for them, their life styles, cater to them, and as long as the man is paying, nothing else matters as long as they have a more expensive purse than their girlfriends. It’s the materialistic, greedy, selfish personality that uses sex as a ploy to gain. Standards are good to have, sure you don’t want someone with an STD, that’s understandable, that’s dangerous to your health. And sure you don’t want a man that drinks heavy, cheats, hits you, etc,. and you have good reason for those standards, but to shun a man simply because his shoes aren’t expensive…….that’s just snobbery.

      Frankly, I don’t find any woman attractive that wants everyone else to take care of her and she does nothing for herself. A woman that is smart, has a profession, makes money on her own, is much more appealing than a woman that just opens her legs every now and then to keep a man paying for her lifestyle. No dignity there mate.

      • Chris

        I don’t get that feeling from the lyrics. Maybe I’m missing some of the subtly, but nowhere do they say they want to be a princess.

        But I agree with you. I love a woman who is confident and capable. Nothing sexier.

  • bomber

    I personally found this song hilarious. To be honest, I didn’t think the video was meant to be taken literally. I think what women like the ones in the video are looking for is respectful and fair treatment. They also don’t want a lapdog. They want the autonomy that their careers have offered them as well as serious romantic commitment. These two are not mutually exclusive.

    Aside from the woman who made the video (and appears to be some kind of lesbian – perhaps ascribing to the western feminist dialectic of Men Vs. Women) Most of these women come across as successful, independent women who don’t want to be shoveled into the life of “My mother thinks you should stay home and take care of the baby.” or “My parents think you are a bad match for me because you work too much.” or whatever archaic generational conflict that might arise from a very “traditional” family.

    I say good on them for trolling the raging internet cowboys out there who think doting on a girl by carrying her bag and riding around with her on a scooter is sufficient to establish a long-term personal commitment.

    just my $.02

    The older the “girls” get the higher their requirements get – they are confused – they don’t understand that having a post-graduate degree or a high salary will not make them more attractive or special to most men.

    The men want charm and nice character, and some want beauty. These girls think they are more desirable, but the men would be more interested in a marrying 20-year old shop girl if she is honest and reliable.

If men can be so frivolous, so can women.

    • 邓杰

      Interesting. I think it is a challenge for men. I look at positively. It is the reality of some women. That is the aim. Surprise some men also want to marry only the rich women.

    I’m an American woman and feel disgusted seeing this growing attitude among the well-off young women in China. Women who would rather be crying in a BMW than laughing on a bike will realize later that their shallow attitude will only bring them pain. A man who wants this type of woman only wants a trophy wife to boost his own lack of confidence. These women are what developed countries call WHITE TRASH. People with recently aquired money and no class. My best advice is for men to look deeper than these type of women for somebody who will be loyal, hard working, a good mother and equal partner in marriage.

    • k

      Except they aren’t white….they’re yellow.

    • Genius Burns

      oh yea, indeed they don’t give a fuck to a loyal girl. And relationship you work damn hard eventually ends up in misery with tears dropping for the whole month. Seriously, I think sometimes we just can’t judge what is right and wrong. After all, they didn’t cheat, and they are not mistresses. Oh, mistresses, haha, didn’t they love to step into others’ shoes and set people up. good to know!!!

      No offense, I’m just saying, I used to think the way you reckoned, but I guess sometimes people just don’t worth your loyalty and every efforts you put into your relationship! Choosing a life to be a gold digger actually takes more efforts and encourages to see how people libel you! Tho I believe they shouldn’t laugh at anyone who is not rich enuf!

  • No Car No Money Boy

    you are so ugly.. why dont you go eat shit?

  • Drax

    I support these women! They work hard so why would their potential partner work less hard!

  • Genius Burns

    well you cant say them totally wrong, can you? if there is no fuckin faith in relationship and marriage, why does it matter damn much if you just marry a rich dude or let people libel whoever you might be.

    Thinking about 2 possible chances between you might be dumped by a guy you truly love no matter what and the guy you dun give a crap except the fact he is rich. Then the latter one can be a bit better.

    On top of that, don’t say there were not girls like that for any white girls. Girls like them are everywhere, it might not be the same. But there shouldn’t be any denying that gold diggers are everywhere. Don’t say there was no elephant in the zoo in any western countries, for f’s sake!

    To those Chinese, C’mon, people are looking down on you already, don’t follow people’s voices without using your brain. You ain’t retards, are ya? Stop bluffing!!! BTW the fact is Chinese dude, if you are not rich and smart, can’t you stop being cunts and whining that girls don’t even take a glance at ya. Bunch of tossing bollocks!

    Well, it would seem these women are basically prostitutes just with a different view towards their remuneration. What a lucky guy to marry one of these and be a walking ATM for your pro wife for the rest of your days.
