Chinese photographer Lin Xi wasn’t going to let loneliness get the best of her this Valentine’s day. She decided to channel her creative energy into an art project, where she superimposed imaginary boyfriends onto some of her awesome self-portraits.

The transparent dudes were inspired by Xi’s favorite anime characters and are featured in numerous “date night” scenarios like dinner, shopping, and walking home hand-in-hand.

The posts went viral in China, thanks to the site Sina Weibo. Since, numerous gentleman have requested a shot to be Xi’s real-life boyfriend. Maybe next Valentine’s Day, she’ll be doing a little less drawing and a little more human interaction. Fingers crossed for you Lin Xi.
