“I al­ways felt that the girl­friend the In­ter­net match­maker in­tro­duced to me might be a ro­bot.”

So said a 26-year-old man sur­named Zhang from Ji­u­jiang city, Jiangxi Prov­ince. Zhang works in Bei­jing and de­cided to find a girl­friend on­line be­cause his so­cial cir­cle was small and his par­ents con­stantly pres­sured him to find a girl­friend when­ever he went home. Af­ter sign­ing up to a site for 99 yuan ($15), Zhang found all the fe­male re­sponses sim­i­lar and went the ex­tra step to add WeChat, with the same re­sult. He con­cluded that the “women” who spoke to him must be ro­bots. Zhang blames loop­holes in the real-name reg­is­tra­tion sys­tem. Ac­cord­ing to me­dia re­ports, users’ per­sonal in­for­ma­tion can be writ­ten dis­cre­tionar­ily, and the real-name reg­is­tra­tion sys­tem is an or­na­ment. (Source: The Le­gal Daily)
