Chinese Valentine’s Day - Qixi Jei (“The Night of Sevens”)

If you’re a Western single male, then “Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus”, but he comes on Chinese Valentine’s Day. It falls always on the 7th day of the 7th month of the Chinese Lunar Calendar, and therefore, like Chinese New Year, its date by our rather boring but reliable Gregorian Calendar varies from year to year. This year (2010), it falls on August 16th. According to Wikipedia it has been referred to in a variety of ways for many centuries it has been known by various names (more on that below) but for several decades now in China it has also been known as “Chinese Valentine’s Day”. To me, this represents a great opportunity for Western men to snag that beautiful Chinese woman on CLM that’s been keeping them awake at nights, so enraptured is he with her.

To current MEMBERS of

If you’re already a member of CLM, send her a great Chinese Valentine’s Day kiss, followed up by a beautiful message telling her a little about Chinese Vday (again, see below) and how much you wish you could share it with her. Mention it by one of its Chinese names as well so she can see that you care about her culture, you’re open to sharing it with her, and see if that doesn’t draw her to you. If it does, follow it up with a gift and close the deal – she’ll be your Chinese Valentine.

If you’re not a member of CLM (and if you’re a single adult male then why on earth aren’t you???) join now and quickly send Chinese Valentine’s Kisses to the many beautiful Chinese Ladies here who will now be keeping you awake at night, followed by a nice message to each one indicating your admiration for her and your desire to share Chinese Valentine’s Day with her. Take the time to make it personal (not strictly cut and paste) and also mention it by its Chinese name. The number of positive responses you receive should be remarkable.

For guys sitting at home with no one to share their lives with, tired of going to bars to be rejected by self centered Western women who are about 1/10th as attractive as they seem to believe they are, this is the chance to make your dreams come true. Join today and by August 16th you could have several Chinese Valentine Girls ready to become your Chinese Love.

For you guys who don’t know what you’ve been missing, watch this video, and believe me that every woman in this video is an active member of CLM (or was when the video was made about a week ago). And there are new Chinese women just as attractive as these joining CLM everyday.

You just watched the short version of the video. To see the long version (with many more women) click here...

In another day or two we'll have these videos hosted on Amazon and if you want one for FREE just write to us at and we'll send a download link.

Do Us and Yourself a Favor

We would like to make this video page go viral. Spread the joy to single guys. Please SEND THIS VIDEO PAGE to your single male friends and help the video climb the Google search pages.

All you have to do is send the email we sent you on to your Buds. And ASK THEM TO SEND IT ON to their friends.

Of course, at first you’re thinking “Are you NUTS??? Why would I want to share all these gorgeous Chinese women with my friends?” Here’s why:

1. There are way more women joining everyday than men, more than enough to go around. Wouldn’t you rather share them with your friends than with strangers?

2. Soon (likely in the Spring) we're going to be putting on a China Tour at great prices, including lots of great cities, lots of fun activities, and at least 4 separate parties in 4 different cities where Chinese women members come to meet the guys on tour. Now how cool would it be to have 2 or 3 buddies join CLM and join you for that tour, knowing that every 4th night or so there would be another huge party room full of Chinese women just waiting to meet you and your buds? Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Hangzhou, Lijiang - that's just one possible list of the places we'll be taking you to meet beautiful Chinese women!

3. We’ll also be planning tours for guys who have a girlfriend on CLM to come and meet her and travel together. Again, how much better would it be if oyu had friends who were also coming to meet their Chinese girlfriends. What a great trip that would make as you toured China together.

Make Your Own Videos Like This One For FREE

We made this video at ANIMOTO, and if we can do it anyone can. Soon we're going to start letting members upload ANIMOTO videos to their profiles, so we'll be very happy if members start to join ANIMOTO and make their own videos. And what's really cool is you can make short videos of 30 seconds or less for FREE. You don't have to pay if you just want to make 30 second greetings (including a huge choice of music), and those will upload very nicely to CLM. Plus the Chinese girls will go nuts and love you forever if you send them a greeting with their own photos in it that actually sings to them.

Thanks for reading all this. Now here's:

The Story of Qixi Jei – Chinese Valentine’s Day: (as related by Wikipedia here…)

In late summer, the stars Altair and Vega are high in the night sky, and the Chinese tell the following love story, of which there are many variations:

A young cowherd named Niulang (Chinese: 牛郎; pinyin: niú láng; literally " cowherd" – represented by the star Altair), came across seven fairy sisters bathing in a lake. Encouraged by his mischievous companion the ox, he stole their clothes and waited to see what would happen. The fairy sisters elected the youngest and most beautiful sister Zhinü (simplified Chinese: 织女; traditional Chinese: 織女; pinyin: zhī nǚ; literally " weaver girl", the star Vega) to retrieve their clothing. She agreed to do so, but since Niulang had seen her naked, she agreed to his request for marriage. She proved to be a wonderful wife, and Niulang to be a good husband. They lived happily and had two children. But the Goddess of Heaven (or in some versions, Zhinü's mother) found out that Zhinü, a fairy girl, had married a mere mortal. The Goddess was furious and ordered Zhinü to return to heaven. (Alternatively, the Goddess forced the fairy back to her former duty of weaving colorful clouds, a task she neglected while living on earth with a mortal.) On Earth, Niulang was very upset that his wife had disappeared. Suddenly, his ox began to talk, telling him that if he killed it and put on its hide, he would be able to go up to Heaven to find his wife. Crying bitterly, he killed the ox, put on the skin, and carried his two beloved children off to Heaven to find Zhinü.

The Goddess discovered this and was very angry (Perhaps the Goddess was a Western woman - comments CLM) Taking out her hairpin, the Goddess scratched a wide river in the sky to separate the two lovers forever, thus forming the Milky Way between Altair and Vega. Zhinü must sit forever on one side of the river, sadly weaving on her loom, while Niulang watches her from afar and takes care of their two children (his flanking stars β and γ Aquilae or by their Chinese names Hè Gu 1 and Hè Gu 3).

But once a year all the magpies in the world would take pity on them and fly up into heaven to form a bridge (鵲橋, "the bridge of magpies", Que Qiao) over the star Deneb in the Cygnus constellation so the lovers may be together for a single night, which is the seventh night of the seventh moon.

Other names by which Qixi Jei is also known:

* The Festival to Plead for Skills (乞巧節; qǐ qiǎo jié)
* The Seventh Sister's Birthday (七姊誕; qī jiě dàn)
* The Night of Skills (巧夕; qiǎo xī)
* The Magpie Festival

There are also many variables on the story behind this Chinese Festival which are also related in Wikipedia here...
