Wang Ziyu, 27, who works as a product manager at a startup
company in Beijing, is going to attend an eight-minute blind date.
This, as the name implies, is a speed dating event that is common
in Western countries. Within the allotted timespan, he will talk
with one female participant. He has taken part in these events
three times in the past two months but still feels a bit unsure
about the best way to break the ice with a stranger.
