what is relative dating good for - True stories about online dating

We were dating exclusively and it felt like it was going somewhere.

We shared the same relationship goals – we weren’t dating ‘just to have fun’. I texted him a few times, but he never replied, so I got the hint fast.

I was upset, but I backed off to maintain some pride.

Dating over the years I picked myself up and continued dating online.

I wanted someone with a global mindset, preferably an American-born Chinese (ABC) who should not be more than five years older.

He had to have a decent education, with at least a diploma.

We chatted for six months before meeting up in San Francisco for a meal when I was en route to Mexico for a holiday. Although we lived miles apart, it wasn’t an issue because I was cool with the idea of relocation if it came to that.

But midway, he told me rather bluntly that he preferred slimmer girls. Subsequently, I met other men who were very specific about appearance – and their criteria tended to be ‘tall, slim and with long hair’.

I’m pretty confident, so I was comfortable with posting a selfie and personal profile explaining who I was and what I was looking for.

I can be picky, and having studied abroad, I saw myself as independent and well-travelled.

I had a particularly memorable date with an architect from Detroit who was in town for an event. Ironically, I made several good male friends in my quest for true love! I hate the idea of meeting people in loud bars, but I did try speed dating, though it always felt like I was conducting weird, one-sided interviews.
