A Chinese Woman Took 23 Relatives To Her Blind Date To Check The Guy’s Generosity. No Wonder He Fled Before The Bill Arrived
The thing about being a young millennial in this time and age of online dating apps, websites and several other forums is that it hardly ever leaves you with dull dating experiences. Good or bad, they are at the least worth your while and if you’re lucky, entertaining for years to come as you narrate it to your friends at social gatherings. And considering I have done the same, reiterating my lousiest date to get a few laughs, I imagine a lot of people do the same. But hey, my bad blind date involved the guy crying within the first 20 minutes of our meeting and me having to leave making a fake excuse about an office emergency. And while up until now, I thought my story was a winner in the “worst first date” category, seems like I have some heavy competition as I came across the news of this woman who took 23 relatives along with her to her first date.
Using it as a surprising tactic to test the guy’s ‘generosity’, this woman from China, decided to take with her 23 relatives on her first blind date with a guy. You see, while we’re aware that blind dates do catch people off guard, this one did a little more than just startle the guy. It chased the guy off, and honestly, we don’t blame the guy for it.
Shocked at the turn out for his blind date, where he had not one but 23 other people to impress, the guy who has now been identified as Mr Liu, a 29-year-old man from eastern Chinese province Zhejiang, fled the restaurant soon after the waiter served them a bill of almost £2,300 which nearly translates into Rs 2,20,878. Reports suggest that Mr. Liu had offered to pay for the first date, however, while saying that, we’re pretty sure Liu no idea that he had a party of 23 waiting.

Turns out, the date was actually set up by Mr. Liu’s mother who was worried about her son’s future, for he had been single for a long time and could use a cute set up. Little did the mother know, the universe had planned not a blind date, but what seemed like a mini function for him at the bistro. At this point in the story, I can already see this fiasco being adapted by a director for his next rom-com.
Upon inquiry, the girl said that she only got a platoon of her relatives along to check if the guy was generous and kind enough to pay for 25 people, validating whether or not he was boyfriend material. A concept that is completely lost on us but also had us annoyed considering there is a big difference in wanting a boyfriend who is generous and one that is an ATM.
The woman and the mother later expressed their ‘shock’ as they shared how they were expected to pay the entire amount at the restaurant. It is also being reported that Mr. Liu did offer to pay his share, urging the bill must be split amongst all the people. And we didn’t see anything wrong in the matter, even though the girl had a different opinion.
