When 30-year-old auto sales manager Zhou Yixin joined online dating at the behest of her cousin living in Beijing, she did not expect to meet her steady boyfriend of two years.
When Zhou reached her late twenties, she felt an increasing amount of pressure from her family to get married.
There have been a well-known phenomenon that single women and men find their second half online.
Every year, there are thousands of happy relationships and marriages generated from online Chinese dating sites.
