The man's side, led by the matchmaker, would visit the girl's family to confirm each other's stance. The step is called blind date. Nowadays, there are millions of single people in big cities like Shanghai and Beijing, so the traditional practice of blind date has made a comeback in modern Chinese life. A price list for Chinese blind dates that has been widely circulated on the net has triggered heated discussion with users dubbing the list a "chain of scorn in marriage". The list is a common guideline for parents who go to "blind date parks" in Beijing looking for matches for their single children.
