Today I’d like to answer another dating issue that I’ve been sent by an Asian Single Solution member:

“Hi James, please can you help?  I’m getting lots of dates with some lovely women on your site but something isn’t quite working. My usual plan ( once we’ve been talking for a little while ) is to take them out one evening for a movie followed by dinner.  I thought that would be a great way of breaking ice as we’d have something interesting to talk about over the meal.  Unfortunately this hasn’t quite gone to plan and some of them have wanted to go right after the film.  Even when they do join me at the restaurant the conversation dries up quickly.  What am I doing wrong?! P “

Hey P,

Thanks for your message. You sound like a nice guy, but you are making a few big errors.  The good news is that they are easy to fix so we’ll soon have you out dating much more successfully

Firstly, dinner and a movie is not a very good first date plan at all.  You don’t know each other so you’ll want to spend your time talking and getting to know each other. So you don’t want to to be sitting in a dark room for two hours with hundreds of other strangers.  That just doesn’t work at all.  It’s all a little awkward and the film choice can really affect their mood afterwards.  If it’s a bit serious or makes them think too much they aren’t going to be in the dating mood…especially if it’s late and they are already a bit tired.  It’s really hard to be high energy after sitting down for so long in a sleepy environment!

Dinner isn’t a good choice either. Most women really don’t want to have to eat in front of someone they don’t know.  It can also take too long and they might feel obliged to stay.  Save that for a second or third date, once you’ve already bonded.

Instead, stick to a simple date of going for a few drinks.  Choose somewhere with a nice atmosphere that isn’t too busy or noisy.  Take the time to really get to know each other and ask lots of questions. Then hopefully you’ll find some common interests and things will progress much more smoothly.

Hope that helps and good luck!

Spring Dating Ideas for Asian Singles

February 28th, 2017

Spring Date Ideas For Asian Singles


Romance always blossoms the strongest in spring. It’s the pheromones in the air, or something. We shed off the depressions of winter and move into the welcoming warmth of spring. There’s nothing more welcoming as the weather changes than having someone to share the warmth with. Whether you’ve been together, or it’s your first date, these Asian spring dates idea are bound to be a hit.


There’s no better way to celebrate the arrival of spring than walking around outside. You’ll get a breath of fresh air and see the world coming to life around you. It’s simply beautiful. You can stop and smell the flowers and even take pictures of cute animals out of hibernation. This date is ideal for first-timers, because it gives you nothing to do but talk. This is a great way to get to know each other. Take the chance to ask questions and dive further into each other!


Imagine the spring air passing through your hair as you ride along the path without a care in the world. This date is harder when it comes to communicating. You don’t want to be yelling over your shoulder the whole time, after all. But you can have fun with this, maybe turn it into a fun competition. See who will get to the end of the path first and share a laugh

Tip To combine both of the date ideas above, trying rollerskating or blading.

Picnic Lunch

A picnic lunch may seem like a cliche date, but there’s a good reason for that it works! You’ll get to enjoy your dates company, while also enjoying the coming of spring. Just pack up a few sandwiches and head to a local park. Of course, if you’re worried about insects (there are many people with allergies), you can try an outdoor restaurant. Either way, you get to enjoy conversation. Afterwards, try going out for an ice cream!

Outdoor Movie Night

This isn’t an easy date to pull off, but it’s certainly rewarding if you can. There are two ways to accomplish this one Find an open air cinema in your neighbourhood, or rent a projector and create your own. It’s not expensive, and most of them hook up to computers, allowing you to watch your favourite Netflix shows while outside in the garden. It’s sure to impress your date, if nothing else. P

Spring Festivals

No matter where you live in the world, you’re bound to have a local festival celebrating the arrival of spring. It’s such an important time of the year. A new beginning. You can really see the world come to life, including the people. Walk around one of these festivals with your date and join in the celebrations. You’ll likely get to try new food and participate in dance rituals. At the end of the day, you’ll be exhausted from laughing so much and so will your date. It’s going to give you something to talk about for many dates to come!

If you are an Asian single who doesn’t yet have a date – don’t worry – you can get one today on out site!
