Parts of the central Chinese city of Zhengzhou suddenly shut down while woman ate dinner at her appointment’s residence.
When authorities in Zhengzhou suddenly placed the central Chinese city under a COVID-19 lock last week, a woman known just below her surname, Wang, had dinner – at the home of her blind date.
“Just after I arrived in Zhengzhou, there was an outbreak and his community was locked up and I could not leave,” Wang told Shanghai-based outlet The Paper on Tuesday, adding that she had gone there for a week-long journey to meet. potential suitors.
“I’m getting old now, my family introduced me to 10 games… The fifth date wanted to show off his cooking skills and invited me to his house for dinner.”
Stuck in the house, Wang started posting short videos documenting her daily life in the sudden lockdown. The clips, which show how her date cooks for her meals, does household chores and works at his laptop while she sleeps, went viral.
Related hat brands received more than six million views on Twitter-like social media website Weibo by Wednesday.
So far, it seems that romance has not blossomed during their long date, according to Wang, who says she is looking for a more talkative partner.
“Apart from the fact that he is as dumb as a wooden doll, everything else [about him] is pretty good, ”Wang told The Paper.
“Despite the fact that his food is mediocre, he is still willing to cook, which I think is great.”
But Wang, who did not disclose her age or the identity of the man in the videos, said the recent increase in online attention has prompted her to remove the videos.
“Friends called him and I think it definitely affected his life, so I took them down for now,” she said in a video posted Tuesday that was widely republished in Chinese local media.
“Thank you for everyone’s attention… I hope the outbreak ends soon and that my single sisters also find a relationship soon.”
More than 100 COVID-19 cases have been reported in Zhengzhou since last week as China struggles to cope with several local outbreaks of the Delta and Omicron variant.
A few cities, including Xi’an, have been shut down, leaving 14 million of its residents in their homes. Other cities have limited quarantines for specific areas, while others have mass test imposed, including the city of Tianjin, another city of 14 million people.
