Students sought for their match-made-in-heaven as the Chinese International Student Association (CISA) hosted their annual flash dating event, “If You Are the One” Friday, Feb. 5th, in response to the upcoming Valentine’s Day.
The event was inspired by a popular Chinese television variety show of the same name, in which male participants come up to the stage one-by-one to present themselves, while female participants waiting on stage decide whether or not to "hit the button" and choose to date the male participant. If multiple female participants are willing to date the male participant, the decision is in the male participant’s hand, as he could pick his favorite out of the females that have chosen him.
Four out of the six male participants were able to walk out this day holding female participants' hands. Some couples knew each other but some others barely did.
This is the fifth year that the Chinese International Student Association hosted this event. Throughout the years, many participants left the room successfully matched.
