A date in China was involuntarily extended by days due to a lockdown. A woman was invited to dinner with a man and was suddenly not allowed to leave the apartment.
With videos from what she says were an involuntarily extended date, a woman in China has sparked great interest on social media. As the Chinese newspaper “The Paper” and other media reported unanimously, the woman’s family got the woman on a date with a man who invited her to their home for dinner to meet them.
A sudden corona lockdown in the city of Zhengzhou ensured that the woman could no longer leave the man’s apartment. She then started posting videos of the longest first date of her life that were shared a million times. The woman was stuck in the apartment for several days since January 9th. It was unclear how long she had to stay there.
The woman published the last video for the time being, which showed both of them having a hot pot meal, on Wednesday. Despite the closeness and plenty of time to talk, it apparently didn’t ignite between the two of them. Everything is pretty good, but the man is “as mute as a wooden doll,” the woman described his behavior in her videos. His food is “mediocre”. But it’s great that he cooks for her at all. The man himself did not have a say in the videos.
The woman said she had traveled back to her hometown of Zhengzhou from the city of Guangzhou, some 1,000 kilometers away, in order to meet several men at the request of her family. Out of consideration for her date, she has already deleted some of her videos.
China has a strict zero corona policy. Several large cities have been sent into a total lockdown due to individual corona cases.
