Well, today I’m going to give you the lowdown on their dating app. Convenient, fast, perfect for all of us who have too many things to do (nurturing our careers, volunteering, networking, trying not to go crazy).
You can do it with one hand while the other holds your third coffee of the day as you sit on the park bench taking 5 minutes out of your hectic work day to just B-R-E-A-T-H-E. I am a delight and I really have no idea why I’m still single. The East Meet East app icon is cute, with its signature white and pink colors and that swirly heart logo.
The previous versions of this app did not have full functionality like the advanced search, sending and receiving smiles, or seeing who’s visited your profile recently.
Since its first release, they’ve done plenty of upgrades, especially to the UI, to make it super user friendly and intuitive. Well (in case you didn’t read my other review), it’s the “#1 dating site for Asian urban singles”.
You can navigate through 5 sections at the bottom of the screen: Search, Messages, Smiles, Visits, Profile.
This is the latest 2016 upgrade and EME let me know that they’ve been working hard to make this the most easy to use Asian dating app.
(Confession: even though I’m looking for someone local, I definitely took a peek at some of the available Aussies because I’m a sucker for the accent. ) One of the major downsides of the East Meet East dating app, however, is that it’s only offered in English, despite the focus on the Asian community.
I don’t know if they have plans to offer the app in Asian languages, but it’s definitely something that should be considered. East Meet East also let me know about a video series they did with ISATV, called “The Dating Challenge Show” and it’s actually pretty entertaining.
One of the most appealing things about EME (aside from it being a site devoted to connecting Asian singles) is the advanced search function.Trying to date in the city is hard and we’re all short on time these days.When trying to fit in yet another after work event is akin to torture and you’re over the whole “pick someone up at the bar” scene, dating sites like East Meet East make things so much easier. In general, the app seems to attract a lot of young professionals.You wouldn’t just give out your phone number or email to a random person on the street, right? (Don’t get me wrong - the right wink from the right guy makes me swoon but you don’t want to receive them left and right, virtual or otherwise).Check out the people who have smiled at you, take a look at their profiles, and if someone piques your interest, give a smile back.Let’s say (hypothetically) that I live in California, moved to the US from Korea at the age of 10, and want to find other men in the Bay Area who are also Korean and moved here around the same age as I did.
