41-year old Alexander Cirk from Holland flew 5,000 miles to the Changsha airport in China to meet his 26-year old internet girlfriend of two months, Zhang. He lived at the airport for ten days waiting for her, before having to be hospitalized due to physical exhaustion. Wow. It's a story as old as time and twice as romantic as Romeo and Juliet.
But Zhang says we shouldn't be too quick to judge her. She says she and Cirk had talked about waiting a year before meeting, so she was caught off guard by his arrival, Shanghaiist reports.
She says Cirk had "seemed a little callous towards me," so when he sent her photos of his plane tickets, "I thought it was a joke." In fact, when Cirk arrived at Changsha, Zhang was in another province having cosmetic surgery.
She says that's why he wasn't able to reach her. But despite what appears to be an extreme case of miscommunication, Zhang says she is still interested in continuing her relationship with Cirk.
Hmm, you think she wants to wait a year to meet to give herself time to complete her cosmetic surgery transformation? I feel like there's something fishy going on here. And what photos did Alexander send of himself because I'm pretty sure he's not what anybody would describe as easy on the eyes. Anyways, after her surgeries I hope Zhang ends up looking like all the fake photos she's been sending and they can live happily ever after.
Keep going for a couple more shots of Zhang and one of Alexander recovering in the hospital.
Thanks to E.V.I.L.A.R.E.S., who's so evil he probably is Zhang.
