Mr Mei's wife, 23-year-old Daria, is a professional opera singer and 12 years his junior.
She is tall, blonde and a typical beauty in the eyes of Chinese people.
Female candidates as young as 17 wear glamorous makeup and evening dresses at the monthly speed-dating event to attract successful single men who travel from China to Ukraine especially in hope of finding a pretty European wife. Deep-pocketed bachelors first pay a 96,000 yuan (£11,000) annual membership fee - or 300,000 yuan (£34,600) as VIPs - before spending an extra 69,000 yuan (£8,000) on each dating event held at a luxurious golf club in Kharkiv.
It’s the first time in 40 years I’ve been on my own for any length of time, and until now I’ve been too raw to contemplate another relationship.
Mr Mei said Ulove Club currently has around 75 male members, who are mainly middle-class businessmen from major Chinese cities, and more than 300 female members, who are all Ukrainian.
Because women in Ukraine tend to marry early - usually before 23 years old - the club's female members are young, said Mr Mei.
Blessed with a country home in Wales and a house in Central London, we enjoyed all that these contrasting worlds had to offer.
Whether we were tramping over mountains in our hiking boots, cuddled up on the sofa in front of a roaring fire watching a TV box set or out at a smart Kensington restaurant I felt equally content.
