A variety of picky terms of dating via matchmakers
“Would you introduce me to a single man who will let me handle bank accounts and finance?” This is one of the first face-to-face dating terms one single woman suggested when she was requested to date in a report on a variety of dating terms that matchmaking agency Biennale and remarriage website Only You have jointly unveiled.
In general, people are likely to ask about occupation, appearance, academic background and family background, personality and religion as terms related to marriage partners. But other very picky terms and conditions are also suggested, according to Biennale.
The result is from a poll conducted jointly by the two agencies on 1,526 members, including 805 males, from Feb. 15 to April 7.
The top question was that “a considerable number of women want to know about their financial status.”
In particular, many women suggested asked this. In general, both men and women exaggerate their strengths as much as possible when they are introduced. However, women with a huge amount of wealth requested the agencies to make this a secret as they believe that their partners may like them due to their financial worth, not love.
As many as 41 women or 71.9 percent of the 57 who have more than 1.5 billion won demanded this from matchmaking agency.
The second condition was that “too many religious women should not be introduced.”
In this case, such a demand was made by many male Christians, according to Biennale. They said that they have no objection whether their female partners believe in religion or not but do not opt for females who spend too much time on religion. Forty-nine men or 72.1 percent filed such a demand.
The third was that the agency should “reveal the divorce of parents before arranging of face-to-face dating.”
This means that they want face-to-face dating only when their partners don’t mind a divorce in the family. A considerable number of single males requested such information. The request was made by 18 single males or 66.7 percent of the 27 men whose parents had divorced.
The fourth term was “face-to-face introduction for marriage should be made near my home.”
This seems to come from conventional thinking. Such a demand was made by North Korean female defectors and residents in smaller cities or towns, with 28 members or 43.3 percent.
The fifth was that they “don’t like males who live in the city smaller than that where they live.”
The sixth was that female members “express their hope to have babies in a Caesarean operation,” and the seventh is that females want to manage the wealth of their husband by themselves.
