For women across Asia, online dating has leveled the playing field, particularly with the local men. We often talk to women in Japan, Singapore and the Philippines who share their deep disappointment about men they date in these countries. It’s not that the guys aren’t worth having a relationship with; it’s that Western men seem to do a much better job at offering romance, love and companionship. Men in Asian countries also express their frustration that they must now compete alongside men from around the world who want to date the same women they date, making the local dating scene extremely fluid, not to mention difficult. So let’s take a look at five simple rules you can follow when contacting and dating women from the orient. These will go a long way in helping the process begin.
1) It all starts with a great profile. Does your profile have at least 3 pictures posted in addition to your avatar picture? Is your profile (avatar) picture current? Are you smiling? Did you remove your sunglasses before snapping the shot? Can the girls actually see your face? Remember that guys who wear dark sunglasses, hide their face and wear a hoodie are rarely contacted.
2) Make the first move. When viewing a women’s profile you find interesting, click the “Send a Hello” and send her a quick message. You’re not making any commitment and there’s nothing to lose. If she responds back, she’s sending you an invitation to send her more information about yourself.
3) Be selective. Being selective isn’t arrogant, it’s respectful. Not only will you not waste the time of women you really don’t want to talk to, you’ll also be respecting the woman’s feelings by not wasting her time. If you’re on the fence about a woman’s profile, pass it over. If you stumble upon it again and like what you see, then send a “Hello” message to see if there’s any spark. If there’s not, move on. There’s plenty of fish in the sea.
4) Be sincere. If you have trouble meeting women in your area now, you’ll have trouble meeting women online, even when she’s 10,000 miles away. To help overcome this shortcoming, start with sincerity. Just as you’re able to tell when a woman is trying to scam you, she can tell when you’re not being sincere, and when it comes to dating, whether face-to-face to online, women want sincerity. Also remember she’s not just talking to you, she’s talking to lots of Western men, and getting lots of messages from men around the world every day, sometimes hundreds of messages. If you’re not serious, it won’t take her long to sense that from you, and she’ll be gone. Remember, the guy choses — but the woman decides.
