Sixty Second Asian Dating Tip

Monday, November 24th, 2014

Your time is short and you want to spend it on dating rather than reading.


So to help, here is today’s 60 Second Dating Tip.  We are bringing this to you in association with our resident Dating Coach, James.

Question:   Is it better to have lots of photos on your online dating profile or just one?

Answer:  You should aim to have 3 of 4 photos maximum.

Full Answer:   Your dating profile isn’t Facebook so you don’t need to have a huge amount of images on it. In fact, if you have too many then this can actually work against you. That’s because some people look for way to rule you out or eliminate you. Perhaps one of your photos make you look a bit bigger than others or has you looking a bit glum.  So you’ll get rejected based on that one, ignoring the fact you have other fantastic shots in your album.  Some people are just like that unfortunately and it’s their issue rather than yours. Keep it to three or four and they’ll have less to judge you on.

Your main photo needs to be a clear headshot which means just your head an shoulders, nothing more. Make sure you look happy and positive – someone worth meeting.  You can then add a full body shot and one of you doing something active.  Perhaps cycling, strolling through a park or going about your daily job.  If it looks interesting then it’s worth including.

The golden rule is that too many photos is still much better than having none at all though!


Happy dating!

Ten Dating Facts you won’t believe

Monday, November 17th, 2014

As a Dating Expert, I come across lots of very useful dating information.


(Image courtesy of Michal Marcol, /


Here are some of the one that will really make you think!


1)   Most people are fine to kiss on a second date.

2)  One in Three people who use online dating sites have never actually met up with anyone.

3) The average amount of dates as singleton has to go on before they end up getting married is 100

4) A Rabbi invented speed dating in 1999 as a way to bring his Jewish community together.

5) The most common break up period is between three to five months.  So you can rest easy if you get past that!

6) A woman makes up 80% of her first impressions of a man by the way he stands.

7)  91% of men are comfortable with a woman asking them out first.

8) People who have an animal in one of their dating profile photo pictures get the most dates.

9) 50% off all singles have not had a date in the last two years.

10) One in six online daters also prefer to “virtually” end a relationship, either by email or text.

Do feel free to add your own thoughts and comments to this.

Dating Guru’s Mailbag: How do I move on?

Monday, November 10th, 2014

Here is our latest dating problem, answered by our Dating Expert

Happy couple dating

“Dear James, I do hope you can help me.  I’ve been single for a few years now as I can’t get over my last partner.  I thought we were so perfect together and when we  split up it just broke my heart.  I still don’t really know why he dumped me.  I’ve had a few dates but nobody else can compare so I’m tired of it all.  What can I do?  R”

Hi R,

Thank you for your email. It sounds to me like you still have a few unresolved issues from your past. It’s not fair that they didn’t give you the real reasons they ended it, but sometimes it’s better that way.  Almost everyone has some sort of bad breakup, so please don’t feel that you are on your own.

The reason that you can’ t move on is because you are using your ex as a reference point. This is completely understandable, as that’s what you are used to.  Your memories and experiences are based around everything you did with them.  So you life seems a little empty now.

I do have some good news for you:  I PROMISE you that one day you will some even better than your ex.  It may not seem like it now, but in time you’ll realise that I’m right.

What you need to do is just get yourself out there and start meeting new people.  Be open to new experiences and give other singles a chance.  OK, they might not be a carbon copy of your ex. But remember that relationship didn’t work out anyway!

Everyone you meet has something new to offer you and make your life new interesting.  Start dating again by trying our online dating site or booking a few of our Asian singles events. Once you have some fun things to look forward to, you will be able to stop thinking about your past and concentrate on your future instead.

Good luck!

Events Music: What would you like?

Monday, August 11th, 2014

The Single Solution brand has been going for almost 12 years now and we do our best to continually innovate and improve.


We are planning a big celebration party but we need your help to make it as amazing as possible!

We’re lining up lots of special entertainment but we are still deciding about the music aspect.  We usually have a DJ later on in the evening but for the big ones we like to make things more special but having a band.

However, there are so many to choose from that we would love to hear your thoughts before we book anything. For those who don’t really like music and prefer to talk then don’t worry as we will have a quiet room next door too.

So, with that in mind, please can you add your thoughts by commenting on this blog or emailing us at [email protected]


1) Would you prefer a DJ or a live band?

2) What sort of music would you like?

3) If it’s a band, would you like a covers band or a specific Tribute Act?

4) Is a dancefloor important to you?

5) Is there anything else you’d like us to do?


Thank you very much for your help.  It’s only with our members input that we can continue to grow.

See you at the party!


Our Guide to Online Dating Profile Photos

Monday, July 21st, 2014

Having a great main profile photo is the key to online dating success.


However, some people are still a bit confused about what makes a suitable main image.

We do have clear guidelines on the photo upload page so please do read them.

Your main photo must clearly show your face and nothing else.  That means no body, arms, background etc.

Most of the same rules are the same as when you apply for a passport.  The only difference is that you are encouraged to smile on our site :)

Please see here for more information:


Good luck!

Dating Guru’s Mailbag: Shall I tell him I love him?

Monday, June 30th, 2014

Here is the latest question answered by our Dating Guru


“Dear James, I’ve been with my boyfriend for six months now and we are so happy together.  We met on your dating site and he’s everything I’m looking for. I think he wants us to start looking for a place together soon.  However, neither of us has told the other than we love them.  I love him so much but I don’t want to embarrass myself if he doesn’t feel the same!  What should I do?   S.T”

Hi S.T

Many thanks for your message.  It’s fantastic news that you’ve met someone through us and that you are happy together.  I’d say that the fact he’s talking about moving in together is a very positive sign that he sees a future with you.

I know that you don’t want to say you love him in case he gets scared or pretends he’s not heard you.  The problem is that he more than likely feels exactly the same.  The longer you leave it then the worse it will get.

Slip it into conversation when you are saying goodbye to him, as it’s the most natural thing in the world.  “Love you” sounds much softer than “I Love you” so try and say that instead if you think it might shock him.

If you really want to be as gentle as possible, just write it at the end of a text message.  Something simple like “I had such a wonderful evening with you.  I love you :) xxx”           With any luck he’ll text something similar back.   If he doesn’t, don’t panic as he might want to say it face to face.

Whatever you do, don’t ask him if he loves you and force him into saying something he isn’t ready to say yet.   He’ll end up resenting you and you’ll take away his chance to impress/surprise you.

I’d advise you not to move in together until you are sure you both love each other. Otherwise you may have a very bumpy ride together!

Good luck!

Announcing a new type of Singles Event

Monday, June 16th, 2014

Here’s something new for you!


We know how much you love our Asian Singles Parties and Speed Dating Events. The parties are going from strength to strength, but as we get bigger and better we want to try new things.

We’ve had requests for us to try out new ice breaking activities that will get people mingling. We’ve also been asked to run some smaller, pure Hindu or Pure Sikh events.

So we put our heads together to create a new concept of event that will make sure you get more targeted dating opportunities as well as have a fantastic night.  These new events don’t have any speed dating or pressure.

We did run Casino “learn to play” nights a few years ago which were extremely popular. These new parties are will be even better because:

1) Private use of the VIP room – so much more exclusive

2) Fun (free) gaming tables with professionals to teach you how to play Blackjack, Roulette and more.

3) Select crowd of either Hindu or Sikh singles.

4) Central London location so easy to get to.

5) Unique opportunity to try something new and a little different!


The casino elements are completely optional so if you don’t fancy it, don’t worry. You are still free to mingle and talk to any of the other singles that you wish.

If you would like to book then please sign up now as spaces are strictly limited and we expect them to sell out very quickly.  Check out the events section on our site to get your ticket now.

Happy dating!

The Ultimate Bad Asian Date

Monday, April 14th, 2014

There was an interesting dating story

featured in the news recently

Apparently a man went on a date with a lady he met via an online dating site.   He took her out for a few drinks and they ordered a few drinks.  At the end of the evening she she refused to split the bill or pay for anything herself.  She said she’d not brought any money as she’d assumed he’d be paying for everything.  The conversation got a little heated and he ended up stealing her phone as a way to get some of his money back.  Things got even worse when the police arrested him and the case went to court. Even though he won the case, he was still ordered to pay £1200 in costs.

This is a very sad story, but it’s one that makes you think.  It’s not uncommon for first dates to go wrong when one of the two singles thinks they are being taking advantage of.   You should be respectful to each other even if you aren’t that interested in dating or meeting again.

As a leading dating expert, I firmly believe that the man should always pay for the first date.  However, the woman must always at least make a gesture and offer to pay.  It’s just the right thing to do!  Otherwise, you’ll be seen as a money grabber and that you aren’t really interested in the other person.   At the very least,  neither of you should ever even think of leaving the house without bringing any money.  What if you have an emergency?  Do you really think everything is going to be free?   Dating is an investment and costs a little.

However…I’d love to hear what you think.

Who was in the right here?    Please add a comment with your own thoughts.  Or copy one of these to vote:

A  –  The man was right

B – The woman was right

C- They were both equally to blame


I look forward to hearing what our members things about this subject.

Happy dating!

Dating Guru Mailbag: How to ask how someone I like

Monday, March 31st, 2014
Here is our latest dating problem answered

by our Dating Expert

"Dear James,  I really like a girl in my local supermarket. She's studying at university but works there part time. I often catch her looking at me and her friends keep telling me she likes me. How can I ask her out without making a fool of myself? M"

Hi M,
Thank you for your message!

The good news is that I think she definitely likes you.  All the signs are 
there, so there's absolutely no harm in trying. 

I'm wondering why you queue in a different one that she is in though?   Your 
first test should be to make sure you queue in her one next time, even if it is 
clearly the longest one.  That way you'll be able to really read her reactions. 

Don't forget that a lot of people will make small talk with her - that's just 
part of her job.  So you need to do something a bit more.  Perhaps joke that 
hers is always the slowest queue or tell her you want to cook something but 
aren't sure what.  Could she give you a recipe?  Do this a few times over a 
period of a few days/weeks to build up the trust.  If you go in to quickly she 
might be too nervous.  Be friendly, smiling and interesting.

Your job is to make her smile, make her want to see you and brighten her day 
just by the very fact you've spoken. 

Obviously you won't be able to have a long conversation with her as people will 
be waiting. could tell her that really enjoy talking to her and wish 
it could be longer. You'd love to get to know her better.  What steps could you 
take to make that happen? 

Hopefully she will offer her phone number at this point.  If not, just ask her 
for it and tell her you promise not to send her photos of barcodes all day long!

Don't give her your number as you lose control - so make sure you get hers. You 
can then text her later that day/evening to ask when she finishes her shift and 
suggest you grab a coffee. 

I really hope it works out for you, so let me know what happens.  If it doesn't

Should I use funny photos?

Monday, March 24th, 2014

Having a good photo is

vital to online dating success

That’s something almost everyone knows when they are looking for love.   It’s the first thing anyone will see when they search the profiles.  If you don’t look great then you won’t get any interest. It’s really as simple as that.

However, you also need to stand out from the crowd.  So some people like to add crazy, funny photos in an effort to differentiate themselves from everyone else.  My advice on this is simple.  Your goal is to look like a friendly, sociable and trustworthy partner.  Not a clown!  People are extremely quick to judge and will make their mind up about you in seconds.

I’m not saying you should never try out a slightly different shot.  It’s fine as long as you have plenty of normal ones.  This could serve well as an icebreaker, so make sure it’s something worth commenting on.

Here are some other photos that you should avoid.

1) Avoid photos with lots of friends of the same sex.  This just looks strange.  Also, what if someone likes one of your friends more than you?

2) Avoid photos of you with someone of the opposite sex too.   If it’s just one person they will assume it’s an ex partner and naturally compare themselves.  Nobody likes to compete.

3) Anything with you drinking alcohol.  Of course many people like a drink from time to time. But if you have a bottle of wine/beer in your hand for each of your photos you’ll be viewed as a party animal.

4) Be careful of fancy dress.  You might think you look hilarious in a wig or in costume, but if it’s your only shot it can be confusing.   Always think about the reaction of the person looking at your photo album.

5) Don’t use anything that you aren’t in.  Yes, it might be a funny joke or cute kitten but it’s not you!

Good luck!

Do you know a great venue for our Asian Dating events?

Monday, March 17th, 2014

group of friends at a party

We pride ourselves at over the quality of our venues, guests and singles parties.   So we have to be very careful about choosing locations that are right for the brand.

We’d like to shake things up a bit and try some new venues for our parties.

We’re looking for some London based bars or clubs that would like us to run events.  We bring in busy crowds to otherwise quiet venues.  We will of course keep using our most popular sites, but mix in some new ones too.

So, we were wondering if you might know somewhere that could be suitable?   If you do, please drop us an email at [email protected]

Oh and if you have ideas for any type of different event that we don’t normally offer then let us know as well.  You never know, we might start running them.

Happy dating!

Dating Guru’s Mailbag: Why am I always just a friend?

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

Here’s another dating dilemma


for our Dating Guru

“Dear James,  I hope you can help me.  I’d love to attend one of your singles parties but I’m really really nervous about having to talk to new people.  I know it’s important if I want to make new friends, but I’m so scared of rejection.  What can I do?  Ben”

Hi Ben,

Thank you for your message.  Firstly, let me reassure you.  Almost everyone is nervous about meeting new people and having to go up and say hello.   Perhaps they’ll tell you to go away, be rude to you or ignore you altogether. The good news is that the things you are worried about are extremely unlikely to happen.  The reality is that all the guests are there for the same reason and they’d love you to introduce yourself.

Here are some quick tips which will help you:

1) Test yourself.   If you are shy about going up and talking, just try asking a question.  You could ask if they know where the toilets are or what time it is.  A simple question could start a longer conversation.

2) Use our hosts.   They are there to help make introductions and are the friendliest in the business.

3) Try the speed dating.  You only get to talk to each person for three minutes, so use this time as practice.  You’ll have to say hello and ask a few questions and each time it will get easier and easier.

4) Listen attentively.  The more you listen, then the more the other person will want to speak.  Ask lots of questions and show an interest about what they are talking about.

5) If someone doesn’t want to talk, smile and move on.   Perhaps they are even more nervous than you!    Don’t take it personally.

Happy dating!

Success Story: Neil and Sandy

Monday, February 24th, 2014

Here is our latest happy couple who found love on our Asian Dating Site:


photo (1)

“I signed on to at the end of Spring last year, inspired by a girl texting me that she’d liked my profile from Asian Single Solutions. I think she’d confused how she had made my acquaintance but her misstep was my good fortune. The format and development of one’s profile is particularly impressive, and I believe enabled me to come across in a brilliant fashion. So much so the response was quite overwhelming. Luckily I’d caught Sandy’s eye too. As a paid up member I could see she’d viewed my profile. Something about her profile spoke to me, especially her smile. I was very keen to get to know her and messaged her asking why she hadn’t thrown me a wink. She made me wait and took her time in replying, but once we exchanged pleasantries we kept up regular contact via email and text until the day we were to meet in London. We actually spoke for the first time on the phone when coordinating our rendezvous, perhaps two hours before actually meeting.


We grabbed a drink and it was a fab encounter. It all came very easily for the both of us and I suppose I impressed her enough for her to keep wanting to get to know me better. Suffice to say I made every effort over the Summer of 2013 to see her. I knew she was the one for me and after I’d met her folks, and she mine (and smiles all round) I proposed and now we’re looking forward to getting married this year! God bless the interweb and finding ASS for helping to make this happen”

Dating Profile Review: Masterchef

Monday, January 13th, 2014

Here is our latest online


profile review for you

Here’s a look at his current profile.


Your main image is fine, but you aren’t looking right at the camera.  It looks a little forced.   While it ties in with your profile, you may have more success with a photo of you wearing a suit jacket.  Studies have shown that more women reply to men who wear suits in their profile photos!

Interesting Fact:

You’ve not actually completed this bit.  You really should as it can provide a fun way for someone to break the ice.  You’re missing out by not including it.



You asked if your username worked or not….and I think it does.  If you are a great cook then it’s a good name to choose.  Take ownership of the name and don’t apologise for it being too cheesy.  You should play up to it instead and talk about the things you like cooking.  Perhaps ask women to suggest something you could make for them during a date!

There is too much talk about random things as that’s generic.  Be specific and talk about the exciting things that make up your life.   You need to say more about the type of person you are and why you’d be a good person to date.


You MUST write about the person you hope to meet.  Otherwise, how will they know if you are compatible or not?  It just looks like you haven’t bothered to write anything.  Spend some time on it now.

Don’t say that you are a pig as that’s far too negative and suggests you are inactive when you clearly are.


You really ought to contact more poeple too as it’s a numbers game.

I hope this helps,



If you would like to have your profile reviewed and featured, then please email your request to [email protected] We’ll pick the best one each month and get our leading Dating Expert James Preece to offer you his advice on how to make it better in this blog.

Good luck!
