Dumped man books out four cinemas to prove a point to ex-girlfriend

He wanted to show her how wealthy he had become since they broke up. Cool?

A JILTED CHINESE man spent $40,000 to book four entire IMAX cinemas to prove his ex-girlfriend was wrong to dump him for being poor seven years ago.

Yep, seven years ago. This lad doesn’t want to let it go.

In a series of posts on China’s Twitter-like social network Sina Weibo, the man said:

I was so poor when we were in our fourth year at college in 2007 that I could not afford just two film tickets. You said when you left for Beijing that I will always be that way.
I have been working hard for the past seven years because of that sentence and today I spent half my monthly income to book all the seats in Beijing’s IMAX cinemas on June 27.

“I just want to say maybe your choice back then was wrong,” he added.

As evidence he posted the contract with a booking agency and three receipts totalling 250,000 yuan ($40,000) – in case you were wondering, his film of choice was the new Transformers movie.

He called on Internet users to spread the message “until she sees it” and promised to reward reposters with free tickets.

They quickly ran out, and his message had been reposted more than 110,000 times by Friday.

It seems the stunt got her attention – his old flame got in touch and the pair put the feud behind them. However he indicated that there was no hope of rekindling their relationship.

“I promised her when we first met that if she left one day, I would make the whole world know I was looking for her,” he said.
