I don't know when I'll ever find a new one.  :(

Unless you are living in the quarantine zone, I'm sure you will.

1. Turn off your computer
2. Go to the nearest pub
3. Drink a couple of beers
4. Start talking to the girls

;)

Good luck, Cheka!

I'm sure it is only a matter of time before you find a new one. I may be wrong, but I think that the female population outnumbers the male one in most countries.

They might have to begin cloning people there in order to mantain healthy population growth, if current demographic trends persist.

Weeeell, ye insectoid horror of Canberra, almighty emperor sir, I beg to differ. Cloning the population of the largest populace in the world would kinda worsen the world population problem... Dontcha think? :p

Nah, I'd just stay out of China.

India, on the other hand, why they get all the Miss World's and Miss Universes, and there are more girls in that country than anywhere else on the globe (which might explain all the beauty queens)...

Yep, India is the answer to your prayers, Cheka. ;)

Having just broken up with my own girlfriend a few weeks ago, my advice is to stay out of the dating scene for a bit. I've been told that for every month you spent in a dating relationship, you're allowed one week of recovery time. Personally, I don't need to have a girlfriend to be secure, but I'd give yourself some recovery time before you start looking again.

Most ancient one of the Citadel, your hoary words of widsom words ring true indeed, but they are only accurate as far as a global perspective is concerned. From a purely domestic point of view, an economy that is as driven by manufacturing as China's is, cannot afford to be saddled with an increasingly greying population. In order to keep the factories running, the population of the youthful will have to increase steadily over the next few decades.

Really? I was under the impression that female infants are as unpopular over there as they are in China. Female infanticide seems to be rife, especially in the villages.

Ah, as to the latter, well, your proximity to the region makes your perspective more nuanced, and probably accurate. However, the "one infant only" law of China has made female infanticide a "necessity" (from a local point of view). Is there such a law for India? Hmmm... Do they kill the girls because of the dowry / poverty?

No, which is seen by many as a real tragedy. However, I digress.   Really, it's a combination of both the factors you mentioned. Plus, there's also the fact that girls generally won't be as useful on the farm as a boy. Moreover, girls are also seen as a wasted investment since they will evantually join another family, while boys will grow up to continue the family line and contribute to its finances.

*headtilt* I thought that the dowry was to the girl's family, as recompense for losing another set of hands...

Nope. Just like, though to a greater level, in western culture the wive's family is supposed to pay for the wedding....
