爱情和金钱的关系越来越大了。

In many parts of the world, it’s not easy for a woman to snag a rich man. But in China, it’s an acquired art that can be learned in class.
在世界上的很多地方,女人想要掳获阔佬都不是一件容易的事。但在中国,这却是一门可以通过课堂学习而掌握的艺术。

A picture of a book called Marry the Right Person hangs on the wall. Shao Tong, relationship consultant at a Beijing-based company is revealing how to read a rich face.
《嫁给对的人》这本书的海报就挂在墙上。北京某公司的恋爱顾问邵童(音译)正向大家揭示怎样读懂富人的脸。

"When you see him the first time, you should pay attention to his left face because it shows his real personality," Shao says.
邵童说:“当你第一次见他时,你要注意他的左脸,因为左脸能展现出他的真实个性。”

"While the right one is what we call ’a social face.’"
“而右脸则是我们所说的‘社交面孔’。”

For more traditionally minded Chinese, the face is a window to the soul and Shao is touting her second sight for the Deyu Nü Xueguan company - the "school for virtuous ladies," kind of.
对于观念较为传统的中国人来说,脸是心灵的窗户。邵童正向德育女学馆公司——“淑女们的学校”兜售她的先见之明。

"Knowing what kind of person he is on the first date leads you to final victory," she says.”
邵童表示:“在第一次约会时,就能了解他是什么样的人,会指引你走向最终的成功。

Mind your manners
注意你的举止

Rich Chinese men might be good at judging businesspeople and deals, she says, but they have less expertise knowing the women they date. They tend to observe their prey quietly at dinner, Shao explains.
邵童称,中国的富有男性可能擅长评判生意人和生意,但他们并不那么擅长了解和他们约会的女性。她解释说,他们倾向于在享用晚餐时,静静地观察约会对象。

"They observe the way you eat, the food you order and the communication you have with the waiter to judge if you are wife material," she says.
邵童说:“他们会观察你吃饭的方式,点的食物以及与服务员的交谈来判断你是否是做妻子的料。”

"And no matter what happens during dinner, you have to stay calm."
“不管晚餐期间出现任何状况,你都必须保持镇定。”

Some of his students, aged between 21 and 49, are blinded by their desire to marry rich, says Ding Zhenyu, a consultant at the same company.
与邵童在同一家公司工作的顾问丁振宇(音译)表示,他的一些年龄在21岁到49岁的学生,被嫁给有钱人的愿望蒙蔽了双眼。

China today has more billionaires than any other country except the United States.
如今,除了美国,中国的亿万富翁比世界上任何一个国家都要多。
