CHINA-MARRIAGE-LIFESTYLE-SOCIAL

TO GO WITH AFP STORY 'China-marriage-lifestyle-social,FEATURE' by Carol Huang This picture taken on January 31, 2013 shows Meng Guangyong who operates a boyfriend-broker business online and is also renting himself out, at his apartment in Beijing. Selling a kiss online, accompanying a stranger overnight for a fee -- none of the 'rent a boyfriend' services popping up on some Chinese websites sound at all family-friendly. Yet the budding market aims to help young singles address the most traditional of values: respecting their elders, meeting their demand to find a mate and bringing him home for the country's biggest holiday, the Lunar New Year.
