Given the relative ease provided by social media, finding a potential love match online has become almost a matter of clicks and a series of chats. There are now more than a few successful love stories which have been made possible by the internet.
Unfortunately, this method of finding a partner doesn’t work for everybody. And that is what this Dutch man figured out the hard way.
Lovestruck, 41-year-old Alexander Pieter Cirk flew all the way from Holland to China just to meet his online girlfriend for two months. A 26-year-old woman with the surname of Zhang lived in Changsha in the Hunan province in South China.
She did not show up. Alexander felt positive, so despite Zhang not showing up, he pushed through. He waited for ten days in the airport. However, due to lack of sleep, poor nutrition and a case of diabetes, he eventually passed out.
Alexander was immediately taken to the hospital due to the incident. According to reports, Zhang was apparently in Zhengzhou during the days of the incident for plastic surgery. Zhang, later on, admitted that she didn’t took Alexander seriously when he sent photos of plane tickets going to China.
Although he communicated with Alexander while he was in the hospital and asked the medical staff to look after the man, Zhang refused to fly back to Changsha, admitting she found it “inconvenient”.
Alexander, as of the moment, remains at the hospital and there is still no news whether he would soon be discharged. Fortunately for Alexander, three women are taking care of him while he recovers.
This is believed to be Zhang.
Netizens believe that the photo might have just been taken off the internet.
What do you think of this story? Could the photo really be Zhang? Was the great effort to meet the woman adorably sweet or plain stupid? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section!
