What?

How about a different headline “Chinese Man has blind date stuck at his house in lockdown and she posts pictures of him and his house it to the world”.

Hope they hit it off. Nothing to do except shag.

“he was good at cooking, and invited me to his house so he could cook a meal”.

Possibly a dialect-related miscommunication?

我炒飯真的很棒, 你喜歡炒飯馬?

She said he is as communicative as a wooden mannequin.

We’ve all been on those dates.

Fixed the headline without a gender.

Well, at least he didn’t ask her back for fried liver and a nice glass of Chianti.

I once went on a blind date with a woman who had a bit of a moustache. Facial hair isn’t a deal breaker with me. Anyway, about ten minutes after meeting she went to the pub toilet and came back shaved. Clearly liked me.

Sorry, I wasn’t commenting on your headline.

I was commenting on BBC News one-sided headline news story.

Well, he can cook, and he keeps his mouth shut. He’ll make a good husband, just not to her I suppose.

Don’t forget the fava beans.

I’d kill for beef liver now.

:joy: Great anecdote. I went on a date with a woman who made us move tables twice before we even saw the menu. She then slathered my hands in anti-bac gel. This was many years before Covid.
