If you go home with someone on a first date, you will inevitably have to meet the awkward morning after in the company of someone you do not really know.

But a woman in China has taken this to the next level, as she has been stuck in lockdown for four days with a man she had been put together on a blind date.

The woman, who identified herself as Ms. Wang, posted her story on popular Chinese social media WeChat, where she describes how she returned to her hometown of Zhengzhou from Guangzhou, where she lived until the upcoming lunar New Year.

While she was there, her parents had arranged for her on a series of blind dates, with the fifth of these inviting her to his home to cook for her.

Wang said in the post: ‘I’m getting pretty old, so my parents arranged more than 10 blind dates for me.’

She added that the man she had been put together with ‘was good at cooking and invited me to his house so he could cook’.

While the couple ate, news began to come in that the region was closing down due to rapidly rising Covid-19 cases, forcing her to quarantine in the man’s home until she was able to leave.

When she called the situation ‘not ideal’, Wang said her date continued to cook for her during the stay, even though he apparently ‘doesn’t talk much’.

In a speech to the Shanghai-based news media Paper, Ms Wang said: ‘Apart from the fact that he is as dumb as a wooden mannequin, everything else [about him] is pretty good

“Despite his food being mediocre, he’s still willing to cook, which I think is great.”

When she began documenting her strange lockdown experience with a series of video diaries posted online, the 30-year-old did not expect the intense attention the story attracted.

Over five million people have seen related hashtags on WeChat, and as a result, Ms. Wang has removed some videos to protect her dating privacy.

“Friends have called him and I think this has definitely affected his life, so I’ve taken them down for now,” she said in a post Tuesday.

“Thank you to everyone for your attention … I hope the outbreak ends soon and that my single sisters also find a relationship soon.”

Maybe the romance did not blossom for the cohabitation of this convenience, but at least the guy kept her well fed.
