And Now, I'm certainly not going to put myself into the same camp with the Julia Roberts and Padmas of the world...but I, too, have dated my fair share of Salman Rushdies.She is tall, blonde and a typical beauty in the eyes of Chinese people.Mr Mei told Mail Online that he decided to set up Ulove club after many men in China started asking him how they could find a wife as beautiful as his.
China-born Kharkiv-based Mei Aisi, 35, became an internet sensation in his motherland after sharing pictures of his Ukrainian wife, Daria Mei, on social media platforms.'Chinese people couldn't believe a guy as ugly and academically unsuccessful as me could have a gorgeous wife like that,' said Mr Mei, who moved to Ukraine in 2001 to look for a new life after failing his university entrance examination in China.It's definitely worth spending (the amount) to find the love of my life,' Mr Li told Mail Online.Although the couple don't speak the same language, Mr Li said it's not a problem.'Sometimes, love is a matter of the expression in the eyes, a hand gesture or a simplest word,' he explained, adding that he's learning Russian and Karalina is learning Mandarin.Before that, he had already had a trading company and a bronze valve factory in Ukraine.'Compared to Ukrainian men, Chinese men are better husbands,' said Mei Aisi, who referred to Ukraine as 'a land of beauties'.'Ukrainian men often have male chauvinism. This happened to my wife's sister.'In comparison, Chinese men know how to care for their families.'Based in Kharkiv, the second largest city of Ukraine, Ulove is a match-making agency that connects talented Ukrainian women with exceptional Chinese men, according to Mr Mei.Female candidates as young as 17 wear glamorous makeup and evening dresses at the monthly speed-dating event to attract successful single men who travel from China to Ukraine especially in hope of finding a pretty European wife. Deep-pocketed bachelors first pay a 96,000 yuan (£11,000) annual membership fee - or 300,000 yuan (£34,600) as VIPs - before spending an extra 69,000 yuan (£8,000) on each dating event held at a luxurious golf club in Kharkiv.Some of the romantic messages read 'would you like to have a cute Eurasian baby' and 'I'm learning Chinese hard so that I can treat your ears with sweet words'.Ulove's female members hold signboards as advertisement as they appear on the club's official account on Chinese social media.And generally, it's presumed that the beautiful Amazons among us (the eights, nines, and 10s) should only date each other -- while the "uglies" of the bunch (the twos, threes, and fours) must stick to their own Quasimodo kind.But, every now and then, a couple pulls the switch off this genetic equilibrium.Mr Li, who is from Shaanxi Province, China, said European women are more out-going and innocent - compared to Chinese women.He said he had worked in Europe for a long time before and was in Ukraine studying when he got to know Karalina.'If we use the soaring property price at China's first-tier cities as a benchmark, the membership fee at Ulove is only the cost of a kitchen.
