Hlloe? is an anthology of online chats that Ruben Lundgren collected while browsing Chinese gay dating sites.

As the author writes: ‘Back in 2012 I was thrown back on the singles market. I had experienced dating via websites but dating on apps was completely new to me. I installed Blued, Grindr, and Jack’d and started meeting up for coffees, casual hook ups and serious dates. Soon I learned the online dating jargons like NPNR (No picture no reply), BF (boyfriend) and 1/0 (top /bottom).’

‘Over the years I began taking screenshots of the funniest comments and weirdest conversation starters. People often react and comment on my 200cm height. The language barrier between English and Chinese is an obvious source of joy. Who can’t enjoy an opening statement such as: “Generally speaking I really love you”.’
‘It’s been six years since I initially signed up on these apps, I am now happy to share some of these conversations. And in case you wonder, yes, I am still single.’

Self-published on 11th November (singles day) 2018.
