A dramatic event was witnessed at a restaurant in the eastern Chinese province of Zhejiang after a supposed blind date turned to an extended family meeting.
A young man whose name was given as Mr Lui, 29, had reportedly invited a young lady for a blind date with the confidence of footing her bills.
Naija News understands that the supposed love meeting ended abruptly after 23 family members invited by the lady gallantly enjoyed a meal costing about $3,100 (over ₦1.2 million when converted to the Nigerian currency).
Reports gathered that the lady had brought her relatives to the blind date to test the generosity of the man she was prepared to dine with.
A local paper Taizhou Evening News reported that it was Mr Lui’s mom who set up the meeting after becoming concerned about her son’s poor dating life.
Mr Lui who had agreed to sponsor their meal together, however, angrily abandoned the lady after seeing the number of people the woman brought to the table and for the fact that a hefty $3,100 bill was waiting to be cleared.
The woman, according to reports had told a local media that she wanted to test her date’s generosity before committing to a relationship.
The dramatic event had received a barrage of reactions on social platforms where it was first shared as many netizens backed Liu for his actions.
The lady was condemned and described as an idiot for bringing 23 people to date.
