#102 Yong people’s ‘love replacement’ 不谈恋爱,只吃恋爱代餐的年轻人们

大家好,欢迎回来MaoMi Chinese!

以前,我们聊过,现在中国的年轻人越来越不想谈恋爱了,他们甚至说“恋爱脑”( See #92 Do you have a ‘love brain’?)是应该被批评的。可是,每一个人都有感情的需求。这些说不谈恋爱的人们,会怎么样满足他们的感情需求呢?中国网友们发明了一个新的词,叫“恋爱代餐”。今天,我们一起来聊一聊,这些“恋爱代餐”是什么吧。

首先,“代餐”是什么呢?代餐的意思是食物的代替品,也就是代替食物让人感觉饱的东西。比如,正在减肥的人们可能会吃“代餐粉”。那么,“恋爱代餐”又是什么呢?你可能已经猜到了。“恋爱代餐”就是代替恋爱的东西。人们不需要谈恋爱,有了恋爱代餐,他们就可以感到满足,觉得开心。

什么东西可以是恋爱代餐呢?比如,一些爱情的电视剧,在中文里也叫偶像剧。还有一些恋爱的综艺。人们看这些偶像剧和恋爱综艺的时候,很喜欢嗑CP。嗑,意思是一点儿一点儿地吃。CP,是英文Couple。嗑CP,就是非常希望两个人能在一起,能谈恋爱。嗑CP,其实就是看别人谈恋爱,并且从中得到满足感。现在很多年轻人不想谈恋爱,但是他们喜欢看别人谈恋爱,尤其是偶像剧里的人物谈恋爱,看恋爱综艺里的人谈恋爱,或者希望两个明星谈恋爱,这些都叫“嗑CP”,这也是年轻人们的恋爱代餐。

为什么年轻人们喜欢恋爱代餐呢?第一,恋爱代餐的成本很低。如果谈恋爱,我们会高兴,也可能会难过。喜欢的人不喜欢自己,和恋人吵架了,甚至分手了,都会让我们受伤和心碎。嗑CP不需要这些成本,只要打开电视,打开社交媒体就可以了。嗑CP也不容易受伤,如果我们嗑的CP没有很好的结果,那么我们只需要换一对CP就可以了!第二,恋爱代餐能节省很多时间,现在的很多年轻人都没有时间。谈恋爱的话,我们要约会,要给恋人很多的陪伴。但是,年轻人们每天工作都很忙,工作完了以后,他们没有时间谈恋爱。所以年轻人们喜欢磕CP,因为嗑CP不仅能让人开心,还特别方便。

虽然,对于很多年轻人来说,恋爱代餐是既方便又快乐的选择,但我认为,我们依然需要爱情。谈恋爱可能会让我们受伤,让我们难过。我们可能花了很多时间,却不一定和爱人走到最后。但是,我认为,谈恋爱能帮助我们更好地成长,变得更成熟。我们在爱情中,可以学会分享,学会控制我们的情绪,也可以学会承担责任。对于自我成长,这些都是很重要的。

Hello everyone. Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese!

Before we talked about that young people in China don’t want to go on a date anymore. They even said that “love brain” (See #92 Do you have a ‘love brain’?) should be criticized. However, everyone has emotional needs. How will these people who say they don’t want to go on a date meet their emotional needs? Chinese netizens have invented a new term called ‘Love Replacements’. Today let’s talk about what these love replacements are.

First of all, what is a “meal replacement”? A meal replacement means a food substitute, which is something that replaces food to make you feel full. For example, people who are trying to lose weight may eat “meal replacement powder”. So, what is “meal replacement for love”? You may have guessed it. ‘Love Replacement’ is something that replaces love. People don’t need to be in a relationship and with a love replacement, they can feel satisfied and happy.

What can be a meal replacement for love? For example, some romantic dramas which are also called idol dramas in Chinese. There are also some love variety shows. When people watch these idol dramas and love variety shows, they like to 嗑CP very much. 嗑Nibbling means to eat bit by bit. CP is an initial of a English word couple. Nibbling CP means that we hope that two people can be together and fall in love. Nibbling CP actually means watching other people fall in love and getting sense of satisfaction from it. Nowadays, many young people don’t want to fall in love, but they like to watch other people fall in love, especially characters in idol dramas and variety shows, or hope that two celebrities fall in love. These are called ‘Nibbling CP’. This is also a love replacement for young people.

Why do young people like love replacement? Firs of all, the cost of love replacement is very low. If we are in love, we will be happy, or we may be sad. If the person we like doesn’t like us, we quarrel with our loved one, or even if we break up, we will get hurt and heartbroken. You don’t need these costs to 嗑 CP. You can just turn on the TV and social media. It’s not easy to get hurt by 嗑CP. if the CP do not have a happy ending, then we only need to change a pair of CP! Secondly, love replacements can save a lot of time, and many young people nowadays don’t have time. If we are in a relationship, we have to go on date and give our loved one a lot of company. However, young people are very busy at work every day, and after work, they have no time to do so. Therefore, young people like to 嗑 CP, because 嗑 CP can not only make people happy, but also very convenient.

Although, for many young people, love meal replacement is a convenient and happy choice, I think we still need love. Being in a relationship can hurt us and make us sad. We may spend a lot of time, but we don’t necessarily end up being with our lover. However, I think, being in a relationship can help us grow up better and become more mature. In love, we can learn to share, learn to control our emotions, and learn to take responsibility. These are all important for self-growth.
