Chinese online dating service Jiayuan reached 100 million registered users this afternoon (Beijing Time). It’s a little more than one year since it announced 90 million users at the beginning of 2013.

Jiayuan claims it has helped 12.3 million users “find love” since its founding in 2003. It is the only Chinese online dating service that is listed in the U.S..

The founder, Gong Haiyan, left the company when the user growth and revenues were under pressure and a co-CEO was introduced in late 2012. Ms. Gong founded her second startup to tap into online education sector, having launched an English-learning service 91Waijiao and a K-12 e-learning platform Tizi.com.
