Desperate times call for desperate measures.

An 18-year-old male teenager in China recently became a social media sensation after applying to the Women’s University in Beijing and admitting that the main reason for that was to improve his chances of finding a girlfriend.

In some of its provinces, there are as many as 130 boys for every 100 girls, and some specialists estimate that tens of millions of Chinese men will be unable to find a wife in the coming decades.

Unable to deal with those odds, an 18-year-old teen decided to improve his chances of finding a female romantic partner by applying to a women’s college.

In a video shot before the young man’s admission interview and posted online with the permission of the Women’s University in Beijing, he candidly admits that one of the reasons he wanted to study there was to make it easier for himself to find a girlfriend.

“This school has many girls – if [I] can study here there won’t be a problem finding a companion.

“My father told me to be careful … he doesn’t want his son to change too much from being in an environment surrounded by women,”  he was quoted saying in a video posted with the University’s permission.

The university was established and is run by the All-China Women’s Federation and takes 1,500 students every year – about 1 per cent of men.
