Mr. Right

I’ve heard a lot in the last three years about this man. Mr. Right is apparently one of those vocabulary words all Chinese learn early on. It rolls out almost as easily as Fine, thank you. And you? The funny thing is most girls I’ve talked with don’t actually know what he looks like, despite all their talk about him. So in our last English corner, we pushed through the vagaries to get the specifics.

As the only male present, I wasn’t really allowed to contribute. I served, instead, as the scribe to record this description, in chronological order:

  • Mystery ManHonest
  • Considerate
  • Responsible
  • Rich mind
  • Filial
  • Good at housework
  • Cares about people
  • Quiet
  • Humorous
  • Tidy
  • Loyal
  • Good with money
  • Potential to earn money
  • Handsome
  • Not too handsome (If he’s too handsome, he will get too much attention from other women.)
  • Gentle
  • Tall
  • A little traditional
  • Warmhearted
  • Strong (big muscles)
  • Fit (healthy)
  • Not jealous
  • Good-tempered
  • Good public speaker (specifically added to complement a girl who struggles with it)
  • Not shy
  • Not outgoing
  • Diligent
  • Just
  • A face like a weapon (Basically, serious. In other words, just looking at him is enough to keep people from messing with him or his wife.)

Gentlemen meeting this description may contact me. I have about fifteen single girls looking for you.

Good luck.
