Dating the asian way
” Hi, I’m Jen2 and I’m really bad at the dating game. We’re all so busy with our lives these days, from managing our careers to meeting social obligations, that trying to find time for ourselves is nearly impossible. So when I was asked if I’d like to try out East Meet East (an Asian dating site) and write a review1, I thought “What do I have to lose?Dating sites are by far one of the most important ways for people to find new loved ones, and online dating has actually changed the way people get to make friends and marry.Online dating has a very large following in Asia as well, mainly because there are many people with internet connection here so there’s a large number of persons to choose from.(Fellow Asians, you know what I’m talking about.) So, here’s a quick rundown of things you should know about EME: The sign-up process is relatively painless. There are separate sections for messages, smiles, and visitors, and a little notification badge appears if you’ve received any of these.
If you’re interested, just “smile” back and then you’ll receive an email saying that there’s a mutual match.
Unsure if I wanted to start making connections right away, I held off on responding. One guy seemed like a great prospect…until he used “it’s” instead of “its”.
More email alerts letting me know that someone had smiled at me. If you’re going to strike up a conversation, add a little flavor, please! Sorry, but proper grammar and spelling are pretty important to me.
My admirers seemed to be within /- 10 years of my age.
Among the guys who smiled at me were a DJ, an accountant, a graphic designer/animator, someone in construction, and a physical therapist.
