Do you believe in love at first sight?
Or do I need to pass by again?
Is certainly what this young man seems to have in mind, as he has spent not one, not two, but well over 50 days at a bookshop, all in a bid to re-capture that short-lived ‘romance’ he felt for roughly 10 seconds.
But is it sweet, sweet romance, or just, as Netizens so bluntly put is, creepy ass behaviour on the man’s part?
Without further ado, let’s find out.
The man from Beijing, China
At first glance, 25-year-old Sun doesn’t come off as someone who would “Stalk Bookstore For A Girl He Met Only Once”.
With a decent exterior and pleasant features, he might not be walking along streets with two girls swinging from his arms, but you wouldn’t be surprised if he had one or two secret admirers pining for him back home.
And indeed, on 24 September, he was in the popular Wangfujing bookstore, where he was accompanied by a girl with an apparent interest in him. A real set-up here, what with books and words.
How romantic could a place possibly get?
But there’s just a little catch. The girl Sun’s interested in…
Isn’t Miss Interest over here.
Love at first sight: China Edition
According to reports, Sun saw his love interest at the aforementioned bookstore, and it was pretty much love at first sight when he made eye contact with her for more than 10 seconds.

Feeling a “special connection”, he wanted to approach her but it seems he was too much of a gentleman.
When he saw his special someone, he was accompanied by Miss Interest, who had feelings for him. Not wanting to hurt her feelings, he had abstained from approaching his actual love interest.
When he looked up again, she has left.
Kinda like accidentally swiping left on this attractive person on Tinder, really.
Despite not having her name or phone number, however, Sun didn’t give up. Remembering her as the girl in a yellow top, he staked out in the bookshop every day from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., all in the hopes that he will once again encounter her.
Love can stop a bullet
There’s no such thing as too much effort, or in this case too much paper. Sun, in a bid to locate the girl, took a leaf out of the police’s books and started creating his own identification sketches.
Thereafter he passed printed copies around, hoping that someone would go like in the movies, “Hey I think I saw her that day; she was looking for a tissue packet!” But it seems that reality is just reality, and it didn’t work out.
Persistence is the key, my friend
At the moment, Sun has been reported to have spent more than 50 days in the bookstore, all in the name of his self-given quest: Find Yellow Top Girl. And it seems that his dedication has reached such a degree that he has actually resigned from his job because he just didn’t have time for one.
“You earn money to support your family but if you don’t have a family then what’s the point of earning money now?” he said, defending his actions.
It has to be mentioned that he had to resort to borrowing money from his relatives to get by. A tough decision, considering how…
It’s not even 100% confirmed that she’s interested in him.
It doesn’t matter, he explained. He just wanted to find closure and explore that opportunity.
And indeed, his dedication is so high he went to a local courthouse and tried filing a lawsuit suing the woman for causing him “emotional distress”.
But yeah I said tried, cos only drama courts will actually allow such requests.
Nevertheless, Sun has expressed that he will continue thinking of new ways to find her.
Although you can’t help but wonder;
What if she turns out to be a murderer with a fetish for toenails? I mean; you really can’t judge a book by its cover.
After Sun’s story broke out, Chinese social media caught wind of it.
But if you thought that Netizens would empathise with his story and make it the next Our Times…
You’ll be disappointed.
For comments did not speak of how romantic Sun is…
But how his actions come off as a “creep”, “stalker”, “sick” and a “psycho”.
In fact, one commenter even got so triggered he sent a warning message to the girl of interest.
“Girl, have you seen this video? Remember this face! Whatever you do, stay away from him!”
Well, I guess to the average bystander, Sun’s actions do come off as creepy. Perverse even.
But hey, then again…
It’s not every day you find a guy so smitten he’s willing to choose love over life.

The Coca-Cola Plus Coffee has arrived in Singapore, and let’s just say that the taste is very subjective: one of us thinks it’s like coffee candy, one of us thinks it’s like carbonated dark chocolate milk and one of us think it’s like Vanilla Coke. However, none of us thinks that it’s worth a second try, simply because we’ll all rather have Coke and coffee separately.
