She ain't messing with no waidiren.
Here's a funny Youtube video of a self-proclaimed "didao" (authentic) Beijing girl, talking about her travails in looking for a suitable man in Beijing. There are no English subtitles, but there are a number of entertaining lines in the video.
First off, you genmenrs without cars need not apply. She is not trying to take the bus home after a date. Worse yet is guys without their own place.
She breaks down her many good qualities: she's pretty, she's got her own job, as an only child her parents have a nest egg waiting for when she gets married. Then she gets down to the bottom line: Unless a man makes a million Chinese Yuan a year she can't consider him as a suitor.
Finally, she has a message for all the no-car-having, momma's-house-living, 5,000-yuan-a-month earning scrubs in Beijing: "Gŭn!" (Translation: "Bounce!")
