Li Chenxi (27) is trying to avoid the disparaging title of "sheng nu," or "leftover woman," so she rented a boyfriend to bring home to her family for Chinese New Year.

Every Chinese New Year is basically one large family reunion and Li Chenxi is trying to avoid the inevitable questions of why she'll be alone forever. There's a major stigma in China, a culture that often attaches unflattering labels to the unmarried, so the pressure is on.

Watch how Li Chenxi picks out a boyfriend named Sean (24) and then tries to convince her family that the two are in love.

*Renting a BF is $150, with an extra charge for a kiss and a cuddle.

Here's the full video from Al Jazeera:

A mother in India recently placed a matrimonial ad in the paper for her adult, gay son.

It is thought to be the first same-sex dating ad placed in an Indian newspaper. In fact many papers refused to publish it.

Iyer told the Times of India that they've gotten a few responses so far but he plans on taking his time to decide on the right man.
