(Tell that to my mother.) Although the US and Canada are the main countries, you can search for singles in tons of other places.
It's always nice to find people who experienced something similar.
Luckily, I grew up studying English, so language wasn’t an obstacle for me, but people still spoke to me like I had a hearing problem. The UI is simple and makes the site easy to navigate.
Curious, I then searched in various cities - Seattle, Vancouver, Houston, Chicago, Melbourne - to see what came up. Guys from Hong Kong, Laos, Vietnam…It was dizzying.
But by using the extensive search function, I was able to apply very specific filters that helped narrow down the list.
One of the nice details about East Meet East is that you can also include info like the age you came to the US (or Canada, or wherever) and the languages you speak (Cantonese, Malay, or Tamil, for example). It’s easy to edit the info in your profile and change or upload photos.
Something I noticed is that, although EME is advertised as an Asian dating website for people in North America, they give you a whole list of countries to select from when filling out your profile. Wait, make that an African-American (or Middle Eastern, Native American, or Caucasian) woman in Poland because the ethnicity selection isn’t limited to Asia, either. There’s also a profile strength meter that clues you in on how compelling your profile is.
I have been quite an active user on Oasis for the past few years. Until one day a guy with nickname Jiwa Muda liked me.
We were the same faith so I said to myself, what the heck and liked him back.
We started chatting but never had a proper conversation, both logged in at different times.
One day he sent me a message and gave me his mobile number.
When I searched for guys who spoke English, Mandarin, and/or Cantonese and who had arrived in the US at 15 years of age or younger, I was able to thin out the crowd.
