Why Chinese men are the most single in the world

There's a huge number of young, single Chinese people and Chinese businesses have tackled that market aggressively. But Singles Day can't solve all the problems China's singles face.
Indeed, it's possible it's causing even more problems, as men resort to increasingly risky lines of work to increase their chances of gaining money and thus a wife. And as capitalism starts to overcome romance, there's evidence that China's marriage market is increasingly materialistic.
And bear in mind, the male to female sex ratio at birth is still much higher than the norm, suggesting this will be a problem for generations to come.
