Recently China's famous matchmaking website, Baihe.com, released a singles' residence ranking in the country, saying that south China's Guangdong Province tops the ranking with the most single people, newspaper website xkb.com.cn reports.

No. 2 to No. 9 on the ranking are Beijing, Jiangsu, Shandong, Henan, Sichuan, Yunnan, Hebei, Hubei and Shanghai.

It claims that the growing number of single people has something to do with particular living customs, working pressures, male-to-female ratio and sense of values in these places.

For example, a survey done by the website shows that a "fast-paced" lifestyle and mounting work pressures make single people in Guangdong too busy to find time for dating.

Beijing has the highest single women ratio in the country because of the supposed doughty characters of women in the city.

According to the ranking, the number of male singles is about three times that of female singles in central China's Henan Province and southwest China's Yunnan Province.

Right now, the number of single people reaching supposed marrying age has grown to 249 million in China, taking up about 20 percent of China's total population.
