金鱼系男朋友
    2018-03-05  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Meaning:

“金鱼” means “goldfish,” “系” means “series,” and “男朋友” means “boyfriend.” This term, coined by Chinese netizens, is based on the widespread myth that goldfish memory spans are just seven-second-long. Although scientists have proved that goldfish can actually remember things for at least three months, many people associate the animal with having a poor memory. Therefore, if a girl complains she has a “goldfish kind of boyfriend,” she means he cannot remember things she already told him and bugs her with the same questions again and again. Or, a “goldfish kind of boyfriend” easily forgets to run the errands his girlfriend told him to.

Example:

A: 怎么最近没见你男朋友来找你?

Zěnme zuìjìn méi jiàn nǐ nánpéngyǒu lái zhǎo nǐ?

Why haven’t I seen your boyfriend around lately?

B: 我和他分手了,他是个金鱼系男朋友,我要他做的事永远都不记得。

Wǒ hé tā fènshǒu le,tā shì gè jīnyúxì nánpéngyǒu ,wǒ yào tā zuò de shì yǒngyuǎn dōu bú jìdé。

I broke up with him. He’s got a “goldfish memory” and never did what I told him to.
