You can rent a boyfriend on Chinese New Year if you’re too damn tired to look for Mr. Right

These days you can buy almost everything online — from basic necessities like food and clothes, to anything that you can also find in the mall. But the difference is, with just a few clicks, the item will be shipped directly to your door — convenient and hassle-free, indeed.

And just when you thought you’ve seen enough of what the internet has to offer, you can now rent a boyfriend online for Chinese New Year! Like any other online transaction, it’s fast, convenient, and you don’t have wait for forever to have someone you can present to your titas on a very special occasion.

Uhm, pm sent!


Facebook user Agassi Ching trended online when he posted a picture on his account with details on how ladies can have him as their date on Chinese New Year. His post went instantly viral, and right now, it has more than 36,000 likes and over 8,000 shares.

Although Agassi’s post was “just for fun,” apparently, this trend has been going on for a while and some people are seriously offering themselves as a “boyfriend for rent” this Chinese New Year!

Is it a social requirement to have someone on Chinese New Year? You know, so you can kiss them when the clock strikes 12 or you’ll get luckier if you’re not single on Chinese New Year?


In China, this trend is pretty popular among Chinese women and we’re not sure what to feel about the reasons why there’s a need for this.

This one’s kinda sad, though.

Well, if you’re interested, just pm them and expect them delivered, I mean, right at your doorstep on Chinese New Year!
