A man only identified by his last name, Yuan, may be feeling a bit lovelorn. Yuan was in a car accident on March 24, and his girlfriends came to visit him in the hospital — all 17 of them.
The girlfriends all believed they were the only ones dating Yuan, who lives in Changsha, in China's Hunan province, reported Xiaoxiang Chen Bao newspaper.
"I've been with him for a year and a half. (After hearing he'd been in an accident) I cried so hard I didn't have any tears left,” said Xiao Li, one of the girlfriends. "I was really worried when I heard that he was in hospital. But when I started seeing more and more beautiful girls show up, I couldn't cry any more."
Xiao got in contact with the rest of Yuan’s girlfriends and discovered some of the women have been giving him money every month. One of the women said she had been supporting him for nine years.
Wang Fang, another girlfriend, said: "We've already had a son together. What can I do now? I don't love him any more, but I do love my son."
Another woman, Xiao Ting, was planning to wed Yuan.
There’s no word on whether or not all the women decided to leave Yuan. His injuries were not life-threatening.
