American culture strikes back, suicide in China

Postby S_Parc » Wed Dec 11, 2013 2:10 pm

Not sure if this is some joke but it looks like a Chinese guy decided to kill himself because his GF's obsessive shopping had driven him off the ledge ...

Beware of long term engagements with AWs, you may find yourself in a coffin.

BTW, despite settling down with an AW, myself, the warning is still in effect.

He preferred death over telling Dragon Cupcake to get lost? :roll:
What for? She's still gonna get those shoes. In more than one color.

I'm tempted to chalk this up as him being a few grains short of a full bowl, but it provides an interesting contrast to Western men posting vids all depressed about not having a gf.

My favorite part? Not being him. 8)

I don't think it is western cultural influence that is causing things like this. Chinese society is very materialistic, greedy, and just generally money-oriented.

Agreed.

This guy had some mental issues. No sane person would kill themselves because his girlfriend wanted to shop.

Better options than killing himself:

1) Saying "No, you can't buy that" and being firm.
2) Breaking up with her.

While I won't judge or make snarky comments about his mental state -- 99% of the users here not being much better in the sanity department -- I will say that perhaps breaking up with her would've been less painful for him.

Remember the serial killer little girl in 'Bad Seed'. Well, you better not take her shoes or you're gonna get it :shock:

I remember reading this yesterday and thinking, damn, I could totally see this being a Monty Python skit.

Guy probably didn't have a spine. When a spineless man gets in a relationships with a pushy woman, they essentially end up like slaves. He couldn't take it anymore, and because he was lacking in the will department, the only way he could see to escape was ending it all. With any luck she'll die in poverty as a lonely biatch now.

Chinese man logic: If you are not happy with your girlfriend don't dump her. Kill yourself instead.
