The cheapest package, a single group date, costs 69,000 yuan (US,800).On date night, clients attend a “luxurious” mass date at Kharkov’s main golf resort where they are plied with sparkling wine and sushi, according to video footage on Ulove’s website and social media.Max Mei has launched a new commercial We Chat account and rebranded his website Ulove – which stands for “Ukrainian Love” – while the number of people following his Weibo account has grown to more than 800,000.Mei, 35, founded his dating agency in Ukraine in 2016.There is no suggestion from the accounts that any of the couples have yet got married.Ulove’s services do not come cheap and exclude the price of the flight to Ukraine.The Ulove website claims a 100 per cent satisfaction rate among clients, and an 80 per cent success rate, although it is not clear what constitutes either satisfaction or success.Three “success stories” are listed on the Ulove website, although one account is totally anonymous and gives so little away it is not worth a mention.
It was not long before Mei’s website caught the attention of Chinese media, making him an instant internet celebrity.
His existing Weibo page – with a cover photo of his wife sprawled on her back in a bikini – has notched up about half a million followers.
Asked via We Chat how successful Ulove has been in bringing couples together, an anonymous staff member replies and declines to provide figures, saying only that its success rate has been “quite high”.
He reveals that his Ukrainian girlfriend is now pregnant, and advises that the best way to learn a foreign language is “chasing beautiful women”.
Apparently, he is making excellent progress in Russian.
