Buzzword-单身狗(dān shēn gǒu)
 
Do you know the Chinese word“单身狗”?It means single. But why is dog? First, 狗 is a homophone of single. Second, dogs like the company of others, just like single people. Third, it is also related to a Chinese movie.
There are more and more single people in China nowadays. They usually use 单身狗 to self-mockery, but in a good way. Because younger generation in China are more independent then before. They have their own thoughts about relationship, not just getting married because their age or family’s wish.
 
For example
大多数单身狗都认为他们还没有遇到自己的梦中情人。
