Wow, is this guide a joke? The advice given is really sad and pathetic!
If people actually do it, it is a sad reflection on Chinese society!!

If you need to send flowers to yourself and pretend it is from your secret lover, you are really sad! If you don't do that, you are just single. But if you do that, you are single and a pathetic liar.

And: "5. Post a misleading selfie on your social media that sends a message to everyone that you are on a date, when you are actually alone.....???" That's really pathetic, not to mention extremely bad advice.

It is better to advise people to enjoy their singlehood. There's nothing wrong with it! Who cares if people know you're single, and there's no need to hate or block others who have lovers.

Conventional wisdom says that the happiest people are the married men and the single women. Don't be fooled, there is nothing wrong with being single. Sure, a lover would be nice, but a bad lover is worse than no lover. Being single has many advantages. Enjoy whatever your situation in life. You can be happy single, and you can be miserable with a lover. Just go with the flow. If you find someone, then it's meant to be. If you're single, then it's meant to be, too.

Ideally, it would be nice to find a soul mate. But many couples aren't even soul mates, though they are together. So what's the point of getting together, just to make an image for the society, at the sacrifice of your own internal happiness? Whatever the heck for?

Be smart to realize that your own happiness and integrity is more important than what people think of you.
