For two years he had forced his girlfriend to get fat because she was too nice and too slim, and fearing that she could betray him, made him too blind. This may sound striking, yet it really happened in Beijing, where a young man, YouPan, prompted by jealousy, made his girlfriend put on a lot of weight. The aim was to divert the gaze of men from her beauty and be ensured he would not lose her.
When Yan Tai met her current boyfriend she weighed about 99 lbs in the last year her weight has more than doubled. From the beginning of the relationship, You Pan had always made sure that she ate as much as she could offering abundant dinners regardless of the costs. It was an obsession for him, he would wake up at night and remind her to snack.
For her it was a real act of love, so, driven by the absurd proposal of her boyfriend, she agreed to eat junk food every day, fries, desserts and every type of food which would make her gain weight. When Pan was satisfied with the result and ready for the big step, he proposed in a square in town in front of hundreds of people. For the occasion, the young man lived to his decision and chose a bouquet of chocolates that he handed over to his girlfriend among the applauses of the people.
