Taking place in Foshan, Guangdong province, over 100 members of the military and armed police (mostly men) met up with 100 young men and women (mostly women) for a form of blind dating. Think something similar to speed dating. At one point during the event, the men of the Airforce got on all fours and started doing push-ups. Push-ups.
