[desperate] [brutal] 09级毕业生们被戏称为不幸的一群人。
All the 09 grads can be mocked for being an unlucky bunch.
The economy was fine during their college years and it allowed them to dream of an ideal future, living happily-ever-after with their sweetheart.
Now, unfortunately, they're emerging from that dream to witness the
truth -- the worst crisis in years – as things fall apart and they're thrust into a
For college couples, even when they're happy about the other half's success at getting a job offer, they're still feeling a gnawing anxiety about not being able to move on together.
Liu Jie, a senior in English at Xi'an Technological University, is still bustling about looking for her first offer.
Meanwhile, her boyfriend signed a contract with a Beijing-based company.
The 23-year-old Liu sees herself as being inferior in English major and her chance of getting a job in Beijing as very slim.
"I just can't ask him to stay, it's Beijing, the thing he always dreamed about," Liu said, hesitantly.
"At the same time, I don't think I'll go with him without money. That's too big a burden for both of us and only make things worse."
She says she' on the brink of giving up this relationship, but is reluctant to say the word break-up, perhaps "just let fate does its job," is the better way to express it.
It seems that, in bad times, when offer that precious comes along, it’s not yours to say what the choice is.
Even for those couples who both get a job, but in different locations, it’s not such great news.
Yang Jingwei, a senior in information at Wuhan University, got a decent offer from a Shanghai IT company recently, but being free from job worries left him with love worries.
His girlfriend also got a job, the only offer, with help from her parents, so she's not going anywhere, at least not with him.
Yang's girlfriend and he both know that not being in the same place any more is a recipe for break-up.
"But both of us really do like each other and, with the time we spent together, we choose not to mention it, just let things go on as usual until that day comes, when I have to go, maybe it will be easier to let go," said the 23-year-old Yang.
Still, no matter how hard the choices are, life must go on.
In that sense, according to Xiong Zhicheng, head of student affairs at Hubei University of Technology, cruel as it may sound, experiences like these help young minds grow.
"After living trouble-free on a campus for years, breaking up may cause them to think about responsibilities and social realities by having to make a tough decision," Xiong said, adding, "also they're still young, things will get be better again."
