Man waits 10 days in airport to meet online girlfriend

Hospitalized for exhaustion


A 41-year-old Dutch man was taken to the hospital for exhaustion after waiting 10 days in a Chinese airport to meet his online girlfriend.

Alexander Pieter 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 told Chinese media she thought it was a joke. She was in a different province when Cirk came to visit, getting plastic surgery and had her phone off.

She also said she would be willing to meet Cirk after his recovery and continue their relationship, according to the BBC.
