A middle-aged woman from North China has helped more than 200 single people find their boyfriends or girlfriends and earned more than 60,000 fans through matchmaking on a livestreaming platform, China Youth Daily reported on Tuesday.
Lin Fujing, 59, from Botou city in North China's Hebei province, is called "Dama (middle-aged or elderly women)" by her followers on the livestreaming platform, where Lin uses her screen name "Hebei Village Dama".
"Dama, I am glad to share with you the happy news that I will take wedding photos in South China's Hainan province next month," said Wang Xiaomei, one of Lin's followers. Wang, 28, met a man and became his girlfriend after she followed Lin's livestreaming nearly a year ago.
"Congratulations, Wang," said Lin, who has witnessed the birth of 215 couples, all her fans at the platform, since April when she began to work as a go-between for single people.
Lin developed the idea of doing livestreaming after she saw her son Lu Qiang watch a livestreaming. She found that interesting and wanted to have a try, so she asked Lu: "Can people who are as old as me enjoy on the livestreaming platforms?" "Of course you can, all can enjoy. It will relieve you from boring daily life since you have nothing to do at home," said Lu.
