Mr Mei told Mail Online: 'Chinese people couldn't believe a guy as ugly and academically unsuccessful as me could have a gorgeous wife like that.' He has set up a dating agency to help bachelors from the Far East look for East European wives through speed-dating events The businessman's daily posts about his wife and their daughter, Alice Mei, have made him some sort of a celebrity.Mr Mei's wife, 23-year-old Daria, is a professional opera singer and 12 years his junior.She is tall, blonde and a typical beauty in the eyes of Chinese people.Mr Mei told Mail Online that he decided to set up Ulove club after many men in China started asking him how they could find a wife as beautiful as his.He said: 'Some people have accused our club as a human trafficking ring or even international prostitution group.I want to stress that this is definitely not the case.'Everyone has the right to find happiness.Some of the romantic messages read 'would you like to have a cute Eurasian baby' and 'I'm learning Chinese hard so that I can treat your ears with sweet words'.
Although the couple don't speak the same language, Mr Li said it's not a problem.'Sometimes, love is a matter of the expression in the eyes, a hand gesture or a simplest word,' he explained, adding that he's learning Russian and Karalina is learning Mandarin.Mr Li, who is from Shaanxi Province, China, said European women are more out-going and innocent - compared to Chinese women.He said he had worked in Europe for a long time before and was in Ukraine studying when he got to know Karalina.'If we use the soaring property price at China's first-tier cities as a benchmark, the membership fee at Ulove is only the cost of a kitchen.Because women in Ukraine tend to marry early - usually before 23 years old - the club's female members are young, said Mr Mei.Since its establishment in December, 2016, So far, the club has organised 10 speed dating events and successfully connected more than 20 couples.
