Q: Anyone here wants to spend a traditional CNY for free?

Well, if any single man in China wants to experience a traditional CNY then I may give him one.  I'll pay for the flights and one week stay. My hometown is in Hubei province, not poor village. hahah, hope you get what i'm asking here. Yes, I want to rent a cute boy home for CNY!

Before I start to ask my single mates if they are interested, I need to ask you a few questions back.

 

I assume you are female. If so, does the pretend boyfriend get to have pretend sex?

 

If you are male, do you seek a gay male, or a bi male?

 

What is your job, your qualifications, and monthly income? Do you own a house and a car?

 

Do you have a big inheritance due? That is, are your parents rich?

 

I know lots of western guys in China who are here because they can't find a girl friend at home. They have various personal issues, weight, baldness, shortness, drink problems, no money so on and so on. A few guys I know also have drug issues.  Both prescription and illegal.

 

If you can answer the above, and state what you want more precisely, I will get to work to hook you up.

Many foreigners in China become acting like Chinese.  I have a decent job and do not have financial burdens.  My parents are happy parents...No pretend sex but only friend.  I start thinking about hooking up the boy next door.   Thanks for your inputs, Scotsman. )

I've read about these gigs before.. they seem to get more common every year, I always wondered how they work.

 

Just out of curiosity, what's the going rate for a week?

 

Does being a foreigner put your daily rate up or down?

 

And what does the girl do when everyone in the village or neighborhood has met the 'fiancee' and is talking about what a great catch he is - (invented)good job, rich family with great guanxi, owns a house and BMW etc..then next year she's single again or has yet another 'great catch'. Wouldn't her and the family lose face or something?

October1st:

yeah I know this was not a good idea but at the moment i seemed couldn't find a way out.  I think I have just wanted to have someone listened to me at the moment.  Thanks for your response with thoughtful questions.  Actually that is totally acceptable in our folk culture that you invite someone, a relative, or neighbor, or a pass-by, to join in celebrating the big festival with your family if this invited person was alone very alone in the season.  We are minority group in the mountain county, and we do have the customs - being hospital to the strangers.  I witnessed a lot when I was young and home.  So losing face is not a problem at all in our culture for this festival.  And the reason I post it here, is at most or at least for friendship.    To answer your questions, I hope i have left a little room for negotiation.

If the requirement is only friends, why does he have to be single ?

Married but alone in China can apply ? 

Please provide more specifics like any other requirements (like education, job, nationality) other than being "single" and "cute boy" ?

 

Unfortunately I will not be available in China for CNY as my Visa will expire soon. But if international travel is covered, I can renew my visa to come back and would like to apply for this "position" !! devil

Forward Question

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
