It seems that some people will do just about anything for a chance at love…
A Dutch man spent 10 days in a Chinese airport waiting for his girlfriend (who never showed up) to arrive.
Alexander Pieter Cirk who’s 41 years old had to be hospitalized for exhaustion while waiting at an airport in Hunan. He was waiting for his 26 year old online love Zhang.
Cirk met Zhang through an app just a couple of months back. According to the SF Gate, “sick with love, he told her he was coming to visit her. Perhaps reasonably, Zhang assumed her online acquaintance of just 60 days was kidding“.
Zhang told a Hunan TV that he sent a photo of airline tickets but she thought it was a joke. She says that she was not contacted again.
After photos of Cirk went viral in China his online girlfriend “came forward to explain that her phone was turned off because she was having plastic surgery in another part of the country. For 10 days.”
Maybe the two will get to meet eventually. Zhang says she is willing to meet Cirk after recovering from her procedure.
