"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)
