Why Beijing is our valentine

We love you Beijing, and we don't care who knows it

Look, Beijing, we're just going to come out and say it: we're in love with you, and we don't care who knows about it.

Sure, you're not always the easiest city to get along with, but we stick with you because we think you're a knock out and there's no where else we'd rather be on Valentine's Day (or any other day, for that matter).

Here are just a few reasons why we want you for our date.

1. You're romantically moody: gloomy and toxic one day; breezy and of a sunny disposition the next.

2. You're unapologetically true to yourself. There's no other city like you.

3. You always know how to surprise us. Living with you is like riding a roller coaster. Fun yet surprising.

4. You're a cheap date. Sure you like to make us splash out on duck or at a really great restaurant once in a while, but we're just as happy to grab a roujiamo or a delicious bowl of dandan mian with you. Or do things for free.

5. You're really cultured. There's always something new you can teach us.

6. You have no curves. You're a super easy ride (on a bike, obviously – no disrespect intended).

7. You're always up for dancing, even on a school night.

8. You're super talented musically. Seriously, we're in awe.

9. You always know exactly what presents to get us. Which is impressive because sometimes we want some weird stuff.

10. You might not make it obvious, but you can be pretty romantic. Don't worry, we won't tell.
