Currently single, Joe Chen (陳喬恩) had previously expressed that she has more or less given up on the hopes of finding love and marriage. Instead, she prefers to have money accompany her in old age. However, the 40-year-old actress recently announced that she will be taking part in the Chinese talk show, Meeting Mr. Right <女兒們的戀愛>, which primarily has its guests speak about their love lives and relationships.
Since last rumored to be dating fellow Taiwanese actor Roy Qiu (邱澤) in 2009, Joe’s relationships have been relatively low profile. As an idol with a large fan base, Joe’s love life has always been the center of attention and many netizens are excited about Joe’s appearance in Meeting Mr. Right.
In the show’s trailer, the actress admitted that she has not dated in more than six years. Joe said, “I really haven’t met anyone suitable whom I can engage in a relationship with.” Despite having previously stated that she no longer yearns for love, Joe shared that she continues to hope to find someone to walk the path of life with. She expressed, “I am already 40 years old! I really should find someone to be in a relationship with. I feel that my father also hopes that I can find a good partner to spend the rest of my life with.”
Joe’s father urged her not to place all her attention and efforts on work. Instead, she should take more time to go meet new people. In response, Joe said to her father, “I’m currently taking part in the second season of Meeting Mr. Right. This is my way of meeting new people. If not, why would I be here?”
Perhaps still a romantic at heart, when asked about her ideal partner, Joe said, “At a glance, he should look like he’s a student.”
