A Dutch man spent ten days in a Chinese airport to wait for his girlfriend.

At the end of his trip the 41-year-old man was hospitalized for exhaustion.

Alexander Pieter Cirk recently flew from the Netherlands to Chinese province of Hunan in the hope of meeting his online girlfriend, a Chinese woman known only as Zhang.

Alexander Pieter Cirk told Chinese media that he met 26-year-old Zhang in an app two months ago and romance blossomed.

He decided to fly to visit her, but when he got to Hunan found no-one had come to meet him.

Alexander Pieter Cirk refused to leave the airport for the next 10 days, and was eventually taken to hospital suffering physical exhaustion, according to reports by Hunan TV.

Zhang contacted the TV channel a day after the report aired to give her side, saying that she had thought it had all been a joke.

She also said that by the time Alexander Pieter Cirk arrived at the airport, she was away having plastic surgery in another province and had turned off her phone.

On Chinese social media, the majority of users were keen to point out the apparent absurdity of the man’s actions.

The hashtag “Foreign man went to Changsha to meet his online girlfriend” has been trending on Weibo.

Alexander Pieter Cirk was scheduled to fly home earlier this week.

Zhang reportedly said she would be keen to meet him after her recovery, saying she was still interested in maintaining their relationship.


Huug Bosse is a Dutch man who had hip surgery two years ago and he hasn’t stopped laughing since.

Huug Bosse’s wife finds it annoying, his brother and daughter have become exasperated, but all he can do in response is slap his knee and laugh uncontrollably.

The cause for Huug Bosse’s condition isn’t exactly clear, but it’s probably due to the anesthesia he was placed under, during the operation. In spite of all the mirth, there still is one thing that can move Huug Bosse to tears. He calls it the most beautiful song – the Dutch national anthem. Perhaps they should have it playing in the background whenever they want to get a serious word out of the man.

Huug Bosse’s wife says he was a normal man before he had his hip-replacement surgery, in 2010. Apparently the anesthesia he was under during the operation is to blame for his uncontrollable laughter. Although his daughter and brother don’t even visit him anymore because of his constant chuckling, Huug Bosse himself doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with him. He considers it normal for a person to have a change of personality, and says his clients think he’s the sweetest person in the world.

Huug Bosse’s wife says he’s always had a sense of humor, but over the last two years he has been laughing all day long.
