Internet Dating Gone Wrong

Posted in China, Sex, Technology by Elliott Back on January 7th, 2007.

Technology doesn’t always facilitate a good relationship. The French Press reports:

A 17-year-old boy in northeastern China was so disappointed with the looks of a woman he met over the Internet that he hanged himself after seeing her face-to-face, state media reported Friday. The girl described herself as a beautiful 19-year-old and the pair chatted on the Web for weeks before arranging a December 26 rendezvous in the nearby city of Mudanjiang, in far northeastern Heilongjiang province. The boy arrived to discover the woman far less attractive than advertised and 10 years older than him, Xinhua said. The boy immediately returned home, lost his appetite, and four days later hanged himself from a tree.

With a name like Qunjiaofeiyang (Flying Skirt), he should have known better.

  2. Homesteading says:

    That is insane. He killed himself after seeing her. I wonder how the girl felt?

  3. A very sad story warning for all those who go online dating make sure your engaging your self to a site that can really be trusted and gives reliable information.

  4. That very bad that the girl lied about herself and her age.

  5. this is so terrible , just shows you lack of monitoring on some dating sites, hope the family is ok.

    There is nothing bad for an Asian woman to choose foreign man that will give her security and future. It doesnít mean that thereís no love at the end of the road. After all, who can say that love isnít sweeter when you have plenty of food in the fridge, your kids in a decent school with decent clothes, and that every new day is happy day to spend with a nice husband.

    That is really depends on a person, if you are slow and don’t believe in anything that is really up to you. Asian girls are very nice and attractive, most foreign men love to be with asians.
