Jiayuan.com (Chinese: 世纪佳缘; pinyin: shìjì jiāyuán) is the largest internet dating website in the People's Republic of China.[1] Jiayuan was founded by current CEO Rose Gong from her dormitory room at Fudan University in Shanghai in 2003.[2] Jiayuan now has 40.2 million users, and 4.7 million monthly active users.[3] It is the largest internet dating website in China in terms of revenue, total members, and active monthly members.[4]

As opposed to many American Online dating websites, Chinese online dating websites tend to focus on finding a husband or wife. Jiayuan is designed to help Chinese singles find marriage, and discourages its members from pursuing short term flings.[5]

Jiayuan is the 60th most visited website in China, and the 336th most popular website in the world according to Alexa.com.[6]

In October 2010 Jiayuan started its wedding planning service, Xique.com.[7]

Jiayuan is publicly traded on the Nasdaq under the stock symbol "DATE".[8]

In an announcement made on December 9, 2015, Baihe Network, agreed to acquire Jiayuan.com for US$7.56 per American Depository Share.[9]
