CNN - May 29 - It's called "Shanghai's 3rd Annual Love and Marriage Expo." But the atmosphere at this massive gathering for single Chinese men and women was decidedly unromantic. For some participants, this was the first time they had ever been on a date. Zhenai's founder and CEO is a Columbia University-educated former investment banker named Song Li. He says the one-child policy implemented by the Chinese government in 1979 has resulted in young adults having poor social skills -- crucial in the dating game. Many Chinese approaching their late twenties, especially women, are under immense pressure to get married. The Love and Marriage Expo felt like a job fair. There were nearly as many parents as there were single men and women. Some parents stood at the bustling entrance to the convention holding up printed posters advertising the details of their single children.
