Man hospitalized after waiting 10 days at airport for Chinese online lover

A 41-year-old Dutch man, Alexander Pieter Cirk was taken to the hospital for exhaustion after waiting 10 days in a Chinese airport to meet his online girlfriend named Zhang. Cirk met his 26-year-old girlfriend on an app two months before and decided to fly to visit her. But she did not come to meet him at the airport, BBC reported.
The 26-year-old girlfriend, Zhang told Chinese media she thought it was a joke. She said she was in a different province getting plastic surgery done and had her phone off when Cirk came to visit.
She told Hunan TV:
“We had advanced our romantic relationship but later he seemed a little callous towards me. “One day he sent me a photo of air tickets abruptly and I thought it was a joke. He didn't contact me later.”
Mr Cirk reportedly flew back to the Netherlands shortly after being treated in hospital.

Despite the failed first meeting Ms Zhang is said to be willing to meet Cirk after his recovery and continue their relationship.
