It wasn’t cheap, but I figured it was a worthy investment.A pioneer in online dating Being one of the first among my friends to try online dating, I felt like a trailblazer!If it worked out, we might arrange subsequent dates; otherwise the interactions just fizzled.Falling below expectations Of the first few men I went on dates with, a San Francisco-based Chinese guy came closest to my criteria.I’ve never been cheated on, but it does feel sucky to chat with someone only to discover I’ve wasted my time with a potential conman.
For two months, we saw each other twice or thrice a week, going for walks at Ang Mo Kio-Bishan Park, watching movies and meeting for lunch and after work.
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.
