The matchmaker introduced a young man named Liu from Jilin Province to Zhang. Their first conversations went well and they agreed to meet at a restaurant.
Zhang arrived on time for the appointment, but was accompanied by two dozen of her relatives. Liu did his best to take the situation in stride, but was stunned at the end of the evening when he was brought the bill.
The total cost of the extravagant romantic dinner was about 20,000 yuan (almost $3,000).
According to Liu, the extended Zhang family thoroughly enjoyed the evening, ordering large quantities of expensive cigarettes and only the finest wines and other spirits.
Liu could not afford to pay the huge bill on his own and instead opted to leave the facility. As a result, his companion had to pay herself. She later contacted Liu and asked him to return half the amount.
When he offered only 4,000 yuan (a little more than $550) in response, the outraged woman decided to sue him.
However, after hearing the case, the judge ruled in Liu’s favor. He was told to pay just 1,400 yuan – $196 – enough to cover what Liu himself ate and drank, as well as the cost of his companion’s food.
It is not known whether they had a second date.
We will remind you that the man ordered a lot of food on the first date and ran away with it. Him the companion wondered what happened next.
