From there, you can start messaging each other to see if there’s a connection and see where it goes.
In addition to checking out the people who have smiled at you, you can also see who's visited your profile in the “Visitors” section.
(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.
(By the way, you can disable the email alerts if you’re not about that instant gratification.) And then I began to receive actual messages. But if you’re writing something that’s going to be my first impression of you, you better damn well take the time to make sure it’s properly written. Next, I’ll be writing a review on the EME mobile app, so stay tuned!As a writer, I find myself holed up in my apartment most of the time. Or at least, quality people with whom I might actually want to spend some time.Sometimes I’ll go to a coffee shop for a change of scenery but even then, I’ll have my earphones in lest I be distracted by the conversations around me. Everyone seems to be doing some form of online dating these days (“swipe right” and “swipe left” have become common phrases in daily conversation) and I’ve heard plenty of success stories, including from within my own circle of friends.I’ve dated non-Asian men before and have had perfectly fine relationships, but I understand the appeal of wanting to date another Asian person.There’s an innate understanding of a culture that isn’t often understood by Westerners (or at least not without some explanation).For me, there’s still a weird stigma attached to online dating, but I decided to put that aside (all for the sake of research! East Meet East is advertised as the “#1 dating site for Asian urban singles”.I can see how this is appealing, whether you’re Asian-American or someone who emigrated here later on in life (like me).So, I guess I could be (for example) a Vietnamese woman in Poland. Mine is currently at 40% or “Maybe I’d check you out”.I’m still receiving a decent number of smiles and messages, though, so it seems I’m doing alright, even at 40%.When someone “smiles” at you, it’s a subtle “Hey, I think you’re cute and maybe we can strike up a conversation”.If you’re interested, just “smile” back and then you’ll receive an email saying that there’s a mutual match.
