Over 100 armed police and air force officers took part in a “blind date” party at Carp Square in Foshan, Guangdong province on July 26 to meet a selection of local women looking for suitors, Tencent News reports. Pictures of the event will pretty much convince you to never, ever attend a blind date party.
The event aims to help the single officers find a wife so that they can serve the army with “full concentration”.
Many officers said that they rarely had the chance to meet females because of their busy schedules. Several of the officers were too shy to speak with the girls.
According to the VP of the Civil Affairs Bureau, over 300 women signed up to join the matchmaking event to meet potential beaus.
As game time began, officers did push-ups on the site to impress the ladies.
An officer is pictured offering flowers to a single lady, which apparently won her over. They happily took a photo together.
One officer showed off his talent by singing in front of the audience, possibly wooing them. We can’t be sure.
Couples paired off quickly and picked out gifts.
An officer is pictured kissing his new girlfriend as the audience cheered him on.
The socially awkward did not fare well. We probably wouldn’t either.
