An Emperor's Treasure to Choose From
CHONGQING, China, Jan. 25 /CNW/ - On a foggy Friday this past December,
in the dining hall of the Empark Grand Hotel in Chongqing, China, now
the world's biggest city, Tony "Full" Nelson, a handsome 47 year old
former police detective and widowed father of two grown sons, is
surrounded by 12 eligible and eager Chinese ladies.
Tony is one of a select group of 12 men who have traveled from the U.S.
and Canada to find a long term relationship by taking part in a romance
tour and today's international speed dating party. The 11 day excursion
was organized by online Asian romance specialist AsianBeauties.com, and
will in its first two days introduce the handful of expectant bachelors
to over 200 available and enthusiastic ladies from the region.
The women range in age from 18 to 45 and occupy positions as students
and professors, doctors, small business owners and government
bureaucrats. Some are young and beautiful with flawless, glowing skin,
perfect teeth and top notch educations and jobs, while others seem more
plain. Some women have flown from as far away as Beijing and Shanghai
to be here today, and all are anxious to find a caring, responsible
husband from abroad. Indeed, 'responsible' is the buzzword that keeps
ringing from most of the 200 women's lips when asked to describe their
The men hail from small provinces in Canada and megalopolises like New
York and L.A. where they are doctors, business owners, software
developers and car dealers. They all have a story, like Peter from New
Jersey who lost his wife and daughter a year ago in a car accident, and
Bradley, a middle manager at a Milwaukee insurance agency and state
lottery winner. They've all had their minds bent at what they've
experienced here, half way around the world and 1,000 miles down the
romance rabbit hole.
These modern romantics are members of an exclusive group of men who
since 1993 have traveled the world, guests of Romance Tour companies
like AsianBeauties parent Anastasia International. The online dating
industry itself has recently experienced unprecedented growth and a
positive transformation evidenced by the tone of several articles by
major journals such as Time, Bloomberg/Newsweek, The Economist and
As the men switch tables at the sound of a gong and move on to the next
setting of hopeful ladies, their gaze wanders back to certain women
they've just met and felt connections with. They all to a certain
extent feel a combination of emotions that comes with being in a
foreign country. But specific to this group is amazement at the
abundance and beauty of the women in China... the unusual and unique
social experience of having their dreams laid at their feet. One
participant quips 'this is like candy-land', while another described
being entertained at a table of over a dozen adoring women like being a
'rock star' or a 'celebrity athlete'.
All agree that not since the all powerful Emperors of ancient China have
men had such stunning choice.
