China lacks girls with this kind of spirit of perseverance and struggle.
To tell the truth, even though I have all four limbs, have a decent income, and look okay, I’m no match for her!!
Because her force of will is way stronger than mine!!!
How dose she use the toilet? How does she bathe? How does she change her sanitary napkin when her period comes?

Right now her parents take care of her, in the future her husband will take care of her!!!
腾讯铜陵市网友 为了你: (responding to 腾讯北京市网友 Alex)
All your limbs should be crippled! You dirty lowlife!
How did Beijing produce such scum like you! Shame on you!

Everything he said are realistic issues, even though it is a little unpleasant to hear. The most that can be said is that his thinking is a little vulgar, but from your malicious language it seems the one who is scum isn’t him?
I hope she can find her other half and happiness.

I’m going to ask a blunt question: If it were you guys and you had the chance, would you marry that girl? At this very moment, my heart is a bit conflicted! Remember, sympathy is not love!
What do you think?
