Day Eleven – Twelve Dates of Christmas

Monday, December 11th, 2017

Idea Eleven – Ski Lodge

Unless you live somewhere cold and hilly, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to visit a real ski lodge.  However, much like ice bars and igloos, there are ski lodges opening all over the place.

Decorated to give you that “alpine” feeling, they are a wonderful place to sip wine and get to know each other.  They are cosy and you can try seasonal drinks such as eggnog or hot chocolate with a shot of your favourite tipple.

Day Eight – Twelve Dates of Christmas

Friday, December 8th, 2017

Idea 8 – Kew Gardens

Kew Gardens really goes to town at Christmas.  It’s heavily decorated with baubles, lights and even singing trees.  It’s the perfect date to walk around peacefully and take in the sights.

If you don’t live anywhere near Kew Gardens then don’t worry. There’s bound to be somewhere similar near where you are.  Have a look for stately homes, gardens or even parks. You’ll soon find one that’s appropriate.

Day Seven – Twelve Dates of Christmas

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Idea Seven- Wine Tasting

Wine Tasting is a great way to have fun getting to know each other while learning something new at the same time.  You’ll get the chance to try five or six different varieties, usually along with some nibbles too.

As it’s the Festive Season, do make sure you include a glass of Mulled Wine too!  It’s the perfect way to warm up the cold winter nights.

Day Six – Twelve Dates of Christmas

Wednesday, December 6th, 2017

Idea 6 – Ice Skating

Ice Skating is always a very popular dating idea.  There are rinks popping up all over the place and it’s the chance to try a fun outdoor activity, often with great scenery.

Many people are put off as they find it hard to do or don’t want to look stupid. This isn’t really an issue though as you’ll probably be the same position. If you keep falling over you can grab hold of your date and you’ll have something to laugh about.  If they are a better skater then they will enjoy teaching you to how to skate.  It’s only for an hour so you’ll soon improve anyway.

Do remember to warn your date to wrap up warm and have somewhere to go to after – perhaps with a log fire.

Day Five – Twelve Dates of Christmas

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017

Idea 5 – Ice Bar

Ice bars are a wonderful place to meet for a first date as they are different to your usual pubs and clubs.  You are only allowed to visit for a limited time and you’ll be given a warm coat to wear once you are inside.  When you visit, you’ll discover the whole bar has been carved out of ice. There might be sculptures or artworks for you to enjoy.

Entry usually includes at least one drink which is served from an ice luge. You’ll enjoy a naturally “ice cold” cocktail while talking to your date.

Afterwards, you can go to a warmer bar nearby or why not go for a hot meal to continue the evening?

The Meaning Behind Christmas Mistletoe

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017

Christmas comes with many different traditions, each celebrated around the world. While many nationalities carry their own tradition, there are several that have become universal. The first instance of these traditions is all folklore, often relating to the British immigration to North America and the Pagan festivities of the season. While we may not know exactly where each of these traditions came from, we know they are synonymous with the Christmas season. Let’s take a look at some of the most common traditions:

The Tradition Of Mistletoe

The history of the mistletoe actually comes from the Druid people. This plant, although known in the wild as a weed, is said to bring good luck to couples who kiss underneath the bushel. As the tradition goes, each couple takes a berry from the leaves. Once there are no berries left, there is no need to kiss underneath the leaves. As long as there are still berries, there are still wishes for good luck in the future. In current tradition, mistletoe is made of plastic so there aren’t any berries to pick. It’s more of a fun thing for couples to do than actually following the traditions. If you’d like to follow the tradition this year, try and pick yourself a real mistletoe and use it in the doorway of your home.

The First Gingerbread Man

It is said the first Gingerbread Man was created by Queen Elizabeth (the first). The spice trade had started booming in the UK and these spices came over from the Middle East. In an attempt to impress visitors, the Queen baked cookies that were shaped in the likeness of her guests. This sparked the interest of the people and eventually became a tradition for the holiday season. Gingerbread houses are a whole other mystery, with no real description of where they came from, say the fairytale of Hansel and Gretel. Either way, the smell of gingerbread cookies is synonymous with Christmas cheer.

Gift Giving

For those who have read through the Christian Bible, presents were given to the baby Jesus by three wise men. This is the first notable instance of gift giving on record. For those unfamiliar with the story, this happened on what we now call Christmas Eve. These gifts were presented, each representing something different to the future of the blessed baby Jesus. Today, we practice this tradition by purchasing gifts for the people in our lives and placing them under the tree. This action comes from the Pagan rituals of blessing for the upcoming years.

The Christmas Tree

The tradition of a Christmas tree has a rich history. There are many different associations with the first Christmas tree. Most notably is the Riga tree, which may have been the first instance of celebrating around a tree. It is a common practice in Pagan festivals during the winter months and has been for many years. Today, Christmas trees are put up inside of homes and decorated to show off to guests and visiting family members. This is often more of a bonding tradition than actually praising or celebrating the season.

Day Four – Twelve Dates of Christmas

Monday, December 4th, 2017

Idea Four – the London Lights

The London Lights are turned on each year in areas around Oxford Street and Regent Street.  They make the streets look so much more beautiful and give the shops a really Christmassy feel.

Of course, there are Festive lights all over the UK in every high street.  Blackpool and other seaside towns compete to have have the best ones so if you are near there you can meet nearby and enjoy them.

Day Three – Twelve Dates of Christmas

Sunday, December 3rd, 2017

Idea Three – Winter Wonderland

The Asian Single Solution absolutely adore Winter Wonderland.  The biggest one takes place each year in Hyde Park, but there are small versions in other major towns in the UK.

For one month only, Christmas is brought to life in this spectacular event.  There are lots of fairground rides, shows and activities for you to walk around during your date.  It really does make you feel very special in such a unique atmosphere

Do keep in mind that it can be quite expensive and the food/drink is often quite overpriced  Budget for this and then it won’t spoil your fun.  Think of it as a charge for admission to such a magicial display.

Day Two- Twelve Dates of Christmas

Saturday, December 2nd, 2017

Idea Two – Christmas Markets

If you want an instant talking point, you can find Christmas Markets in many high streets.  They are usually copies of European markets, with lots of pretty lights and wares to buy.

No reputable market is complete without it’s own hot dog stand. Bratwursts are a very popular delicacy and they usually have a variety of the sausages available.

Take a stroll around you’ll find homemade goods and lots of art and crafts.  This could be candles, paintings, perfumes or Christmas cards.  Maybe you can buy each other a small trinket as as souvenir?

Day One – Twelve Dates of Christmas

Friday, December 1st, 2017

 

As a bit of Festive Fun, we will be giving you 12 fun dating ideas over the next few days.  You can use them for inspiration for when you go out on dates with members of the site.

Idea One – London Igloos

You might not have realised, but igloos are popping over all over the place.  These are modern little outdoor bubbles that give you the chance to meet someone in a fun,private environment.  You can see the stars at night and eat or drink to your hearts content.  With some you can try fondue together if you fancy it.

Don’t worry, these igloos are heated and many also come with blankets just in case you get a bit chilly.  We think they are the perfect romantic environment to warm up your love life.  If nothing more, you’ll have a great night to remember for years to come.

They are extremely popular so if you are interested you will need to book up early. They sell out very quickly each year so if you don’t want to miss out start planning today.

Festive Dating Ideas For The Christmas Holiday

Tuesday, November 28th, 2017

Dating around the holidays can be pretty stressful. Most places are packed with last-minute shoppers. There’s a different kind of pressure in the air regarding romance. If you’re just getting to know someone, you want to avoid all of it. You just want a quiet night to share with someone. At the same time, you want to feel festive too.  Here are a few date ideas that take both of these factors into consideration:

Decorating The House

One of the most fun activities during the Christmas holiday is decorating. Some people even make a sport out of it to try and compete with neighbours in a playful way. Even if you’ve just started dating, decorating the house can be a great activity. It’s inexpensive, as you’ve likely got the decorations handy already. It will also give the two of you the chance to discuss holiday memories. This is great for bonding, plus it adds a festive cheer to your home and your blossoming relationship.

Baking

Of course, you can also opt for decorating a gingerbread house instead of your own home.  If you don’t know each other well enough to take them home, this smaller and edible home is a great date idea too. The two of you can create something together, which gives you an idea of the chemistry between you. Then you get to enjoy the delicious taste of eating your creation after. Plus, you can eat all the leftover decorations you didn’t use while you were putting the house together. Don’t forget to save some decor for the little gingerbread folk who will be living in your newly made dwelling!

Sweater Shopping

If you’re the type who likes to shop, this is the best date idea for you. This involves heading to your local thrift shop and looking for a Christmas sweater. The two of you can playfully compete to see who can find the ugliest sweater. Or you can just opt for matching sweaters if you’re feeling that vibe. Of course, you don’t have to go for ugly sweaters either. You can try and find something more significant to the relationship that you might want to wear over and over. Shopping is always a fun date idea, especially when you first start dating. You get a good idea of what your new partner is into and what they like. This especially helps around the holidays.

Christmas Movies

You can do this one at home or go to your local cinema. Around Christmas, all the holiday movies come out and are usually on offer. You can buy a few of them to bring home and watch. In some places you can still rent DVD’s, so maybe rent them instead of buying. Or you can simply head to Netflix to see what movies might be listed there for the season. In most places, the local cinema takes the holiday as an opportunity to drum up business by playing classic Christmas movies. Whichever route you choose, make sure to grab yourself some popcorn!

Sight-Seeing

A classic holiday date idea is to go sight-seeing in your neighborhood. This often involves looking at all the brightly decorated homes around yours. You can choose either neighborhood or do both if you’re feeling adventurous. Just make sure that you’re dressing warm, as the winds are often cold in the later hours of winter. It might also be a good idea to grab yourselves hot chocolate before heading on your stroll. This gives you something warm to counter the temperature. It also gives you something to do with your hands, in case you might be nervous.

How to Make Your Profile Pop

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

Online dating is all about the way you present yourself. Since you’re not initially meeting face-to-face, your profile is going to be the first impression anyone has of you. You want to make a good impression. This will have other members of the website contacting you and wanting to know more. You’ll have more dating opportunities with a well-rounded profile. It can be hard to come up with a unique profile that truly stands out from all your competition. The good news is that we’ll show you where to start!

Your username and profile picture are the two most important aspects of your dating profile. These are the first things someone will see when you show up in a search or while they are browsing. Your username should be something clever and inventive. Hotguy2015 isn’t going to stand out. Puns are a good way to make usernames stand out. If there’s a clever way you can use your name to create a word, try that! You’d be surprised how many people are more interested in clicking a clever username. Now your profile picture should flattering, but not misleading. You don’t want to use any photo magic in a profile picture. You can choose flattering angles (most people do) and wear the clothes you look best in. You can pose or take a more candid style photo to show off your personality. You can use flattering images as supporting pictures, but try to look as natural as possible in your profile picture.

The next thing someone is going to look at is your tagline. “I’m looking for Mr/Mrs. Right” is not an informative tagline. You’re pretty limited on what you can say in a tagline so be creative! Find the shortest way to get the most information across. For instance: “My Mr/Mrs. Right loves beagle puppies and watching hockey on Saturday nights.” In this tagline, you’re talking more about who you’re looking for. You’ll appeal to anyone who loves beagle puppies or hockey. Obviously, this is an outline. You’ll want to use things that personally apply to you and your interests. The tagline is a great way to quickly summarise who you are and what you’re looking for.

Your profile information is where you’ll get to dive into details. Now to really make your profile pop, you’ll want to include summarized information. No one enjoys reading large paragraphs of text. Even if they are interested in you, they aren’t looking to read a book. Using point-form is the easiest way to describe yourself in more detail. It’s also useful for describing your ideal mate. Many dating profiles are very basic. They talk about generic interests, like music or movies or sports. They don’t talk about personality. You want to stand out, so you want to describe who you are, not just what you’re into.

The most important thing to remember about building any dating profile is to be yourself. You can accentuate your good qualities and leave out some of the bad, but don’t pretend to be someone you’re not. If you’re looking for a real connection, you have to be a real person.

Five ways to guarantee a Second Date

Thursday, August 31st, 2017

First dates are fun, exciting, and usually pretty awesome.  However, sometimes they are can scary or boring and something you never want to want to repeat.

long beard and mustache man giving flowers

So our goal is to make sure you always have an amazing first date.  That’s the easy part.  We then need to make sure that you get the second date!

Here are five ways to guarantee that second date:

1) The first way to guarantee a second date is ask for one.  This seems like the most obvious thing, but many first dates end with no set plan on if you will meet again, and then both parties are waiting for the other to call, text, message and nothing will ever happen. So find out if they’d like to meet again at the end of your first meeting.

2) Play it cool.  Don’t overdo it with the compliments or phrases that share what a great time you are having on the date.  Saying “I’m having a great time”  once is a good thing, it lets the other person know you are having a good time, but you don’t want to overkill it.

3) Remember to ask questions and listen to the answer.  When you and the date are conversing it shows that you have an interest in your date will make them feel involved.

 4) Keep the topics of conversation light.  You don’t want to talk about your medical issues, death or other heavy topics because you want to have fun and learn about the other.  The big stuff can wait until the fifth date or sometime afterwards once you know each a lot better. Leave them wanting to know more about you

5) Plan exciting dates.  Having coffee or cocktail dates is all very well, but if you are doing a lot of dating it can get tiring fast.  So think about how you can spice things up a bit and stand out from your competition.  If you date is the most exciting they’ve had in ages, they will naturally want to repeat it.  This is true whether you are male or female as you could be taking it in turns to plan your dates.

These are five simple ways to guarantee a second date with someone that you had a splendid first date with.  Attraction is a tricky thing, so just be honest with the date and have fun being yourself.

Happy dating!

Why we Kiss

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

For many people, the question of “why we kiss” seems fairly obvious. It’s all about sharing an intimate moment with someone we care about. It’s offering a deeper connection, demonstrating our vulnerabilities. Or sometimes, it’s about getting a feel for a new lovers’ skills. Kissing is just a great way to express your inner romanticism or a way to make a physical connection with someone else. Well, that does seem like the more the obvious reason to kiss someone, right?

But it’s not scientifically correct. That’s right, there’s a scientific reason for kissing someone!  It involves biological figures.

The fact is the study of kissing is actually called “philematology”. This is derived from the greek word (isn’t everything?) “philos”. The translation of that word means an “earthy love”. It’s a word that describes getting back to the roots. This is a suitable word for the study of kissing as  kissing itself feels like a connection to the root of the recipient. That’s why it often feels the most vulnerable, even though it’s such a simple action.

Philematology describes kissing as a way our bodies communicate chemically. The exchange of saliva is actually a way of determining physical compatibility. Your body will react likewise to the communications you aren’t even conscious of. You know how kissing can leave you absolutely breathless and make you fall head over heels in love with that person? Or it can turn you off completely and you’ll send them running for the exit? That’s the response to the chemical composition of the person you’re kissing. It can work either way depending on how skilled you are at doing it.

Over the years it’s been deemed that human beings used these chemical communications less and less. That our primal instinct to find the perfect partner for mating has been fading. But studies are arguing those assumptions by proving them entirely wrong. Studies are done to determine the likelihood of two people choosing to mate, using chemical compositions.

That might seem a little far fetched, but as a relationship expert I know how true it is. As we’ve evolved as human beings and our “ideals” have changed, you would think our bodies no longer look for this signals. The fact of the matter is that many of our “ideals” are actually just those same chemical responses. Whether it’s through kissing or the scent of another person, it’s in our DNA to find that “perfect someone”. Even if you’re not looking for an ideal mating partner, your body is. That’s just the way we were designed and there’s nothing you can do about it!

Interestingly, philematology determined that kissing can actually burn calories. You use around 25 facial muscles when you’re deeply kissing someone (only about 2 or 3 for a simple kiss). You also use over 100 postural muscles! Therefore, you can burn up to 25 calories every minute you’re in a heated make-out session. So make sure you’re putting those muscles to good use.

It’s all in the name of science, after all.

Why women should contact men first

Sunday, July 30th, 2017
 
Many women believe that they should wait for men to message them on dating sites. They might have the old fashioned view that it’s up to men to message them first or are worried about appearing to be forward. So they wait and wait and wonder why they never seem to get messages from men they are interested in.
Men and women approach online dating in different ways, and once you realise this you can use it to your advantage.  Men tend to collect up their “favourites” and then contact many women at once, in one big hit. This is called the Shotgun approach and is very hit and miss. Women, on the other hand, can be more selective and will either wait to see who contacts them or just send one or two messages.
The secret is to be proactive and actively target men you are interested. Don’t sit and wait for them to come to you or someone else will snap them up. Imagine you are applying for a job and your dating profile is your CV.  Would you send out your CV to prospective employees or would you expect them to come and find you first?
Check back on the site every day and contact the new men.  By doing so, you’ll be top listed in the searches as shows the men the most recent women to log into the site.  You’ll then find more men are contacting you anyway.
Men absolutely love it when women message them first.  If you’ve got a great photo, interesting profile and are in the right age group then this is very flattering.  What man wouldn’t be interested?  It’s not overly flirtatious to write to a man – after all you are both on a dating site with the same intentions.
So what should you say?    Imagine you are in a bar or at a party. How would you get their attention? Perhaps you’d look over and smile.  You need to do the same thing in your first email. Write just enough to get them hooked and capture their imagination.   Ask them how their day is going or what they are up to for the weekend.
So why not send some messages now?  You’ll see much better results and might just make someone’s day!

Summer Dating Ideas for Single Asian Professionals.

Wednesday, July 26th, 2017

With the warming weather comes that feeling of romance.

First dates are the most common during the summer months, because there are more options. Plus, everyone feels like getting out of the house and going on an adventure. Big or small. It’s true that there are many things to do in the summer. Alone and with others. In fact, there are many “summer date idea” posts out there. But, you don’t want to do what everyone else is doing, do you? You want something a little more original that is bound to make an impression on your date.

Sight-Seeing

This doesn’t refer to seeing the sights, like monuments, fairs or local anything. This is referring to real sights, like bird-watching. As children, we’ve all played “I Spy”. Well, there’s nothing stopping us from doing it now, too. Especially on a date! It’s a fun way to get to experience everything around you. Take a simple walk and play the modified version of the game. Instead of saying “I spy”, point out random things. Discuss a random tree and the pattern in the bark. This date idea is great for really getting to know the person you’re with.

Bored? Try Games!

You may think it’s boring to play board games on a date, but think about it! You have the chance to talk, while you’re both planning a strategy. You get to see how competitive your date is, while getting to know how they plan and organise their thoughts. Board games provide an intellectual challenge, while being a great way to make and share memories. You could share with each other the “last time I played this” stories. It’s also inexpensive, since many of us have these laying around. Or, you could opt for a board game cafe is there’s one in your area. It’s more crowded though, and indoors. Your own board games could be played outside, to still enjoy the weather.

How About Something Refreshing?

Are you thinking about a restaurant, going out for ice cream/coffee/drinks? Forget about it! It’s overdone. No one wants to be inside with such nice weather. Do you have a back/front yard? A sidewalk? Make use of the outdoor space you do have. If you have none, it’s the perfect time to plan a picnic. Put together something delicious and homemade and treat your date. If you’re not feeling it, try these: Homemade ice pops, homemade lemonade, homemade floats, homemade ice cream. Inexpensive to make and delicious to taste. Plus, homemade edibles are always the best! If you’re taking the homemade route, include your date. The creation is half of the fun!

Head To The Beach

Okay, going to the beach is a pretty typical date idea. You grab ice cream and take a stroll. Maybe you collect seashells. Maybe you bring a guitar and play some music. Or, you and your date could build a sandcastle together. Yes, that sounds a little childish. Come on, summer brings out the younger parts of our hearts. Get a little messy, covered in mud and sand. Build something awesome together, demonstrating team work and your personal creativity. This can actually be a great way to know if you’ll work together in a more serious relationship. How you communicate and what the two of you can create together. After you’re done, go swimming in your clothes to get clean. It sounds messy, but, the best things are!

Of course you can opt for the traditional date ideas: swimming, getting ice cream, eating at a restaurant, a walk through the park and talking about life. But, what’s the fun in doing any of that? Summer is supposed to be fun. A time of the year when we get out of the boring work clothes and stuffed mentality. We feel a freedom with the bright and shining sun. There’s no reason your dating life should be any different! A bit of playfulness and some creativity are bound to get you a better dating experience.

Asian Single Solution meets Gulshan Grover

Monday, June 26th, 2017

The Asian Single Solution is a very proud sponsor of the London Indian Film Festival.


This year we are sponsoring the film “BadMan” and we attended the premiere last Saturday at Wembley Stadium, along with some very lucky Asian Single Solution members.

The event began with an introduction by the star of the film himself – Gulshan Grover – and was followed by an Q and A with him and the ever popular Sunny and Shay.  After this we organised a very special drinks reception in a secret nearby venue, to allow our guests to meet and discuss the film.

 

This was a very exciting event and a great time was had by everyone who attended. The Festival is on for another few days and there are lots of more shows that might interest you.

Do check out our events page to find out what wonderful singles events we have coming up next too.

Asian Single Solution once again sponsoring the London Indian Film Festival

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

We are delighted to announce that we are once again sponsoring the Bagri Foundation London Indian Film Festival.

Now in it’s 8th year, the festival showcases some of the most prestigious and though provoking movies from the Indian subcontinent. This year, it will be held
from the 22nd – 29th June in London and 23rd June – 02 July.

It’s such a great opportunity to be able to support this festival. Many of our members love cinema and it’s a wonderful way to celebrate the best of Indian culture and film making.  If you get the chance then do check out some of the films.

Our lead film will be “Bad Man” :

 

_________________________________

A mad, comic caper where the legendary villain of Bollywood, Gulshan Grover, decides to re-launch himself in the film industry, but this time as a hero! The not so young Grover enlists the help of his dysfunctional sons and begrudging Bollywood stars including Chunky Pandey and Farah Khan to help him achieve his transformation. Guided by his ‘friends’ our hero soon slips into increasingly hilarious and delusional situations as they plan his launch movie. Badman explores the dark yet funny side of Bollywood where almost anything is possible. It’s epic mockumentary style is a first for Indian cinema.

 

Director: Soumik Sen
Starring: Gulshan Grover, Chunky Pandey, Rishi Kapoor, Manisha Koirala, Farah Khan
Run time: 84 mins | Recommended Certificate: 12A

Messages that Work

Monday, May 8th, 2017

When you are trying to contact people on an online dating site, it can be hard to know what to say to get their interest.

Here are our top three tips to boost your chances:

1) Don’t Copy and Paste

If you don’t get a huge amount of replies it can be tempting to stop putting the effort in. It might seem easier to just copy and paste the same message over and over.  After all, someone is bound to reply right?  The problem with this is that these types of messages are very easy to spot….and they annoy people.  So you are very unlikely to get a response and you’ll get even less than before. It’s a Catch 22 situation.  A little effort can go a long way.

2) Personalise the Message

If you want to get someone to write back, you have to make things personal.  Use their name (or username) and it will boost your chances of making a connection.  Tell them what you liked about their profile and why you’d be a good match. Use a little humour and ask a fun question. For example, if they say they like baking cakes then ask what cake they would make you.  It shows you are paying attention and aren’t afraid to laugh at life.

3) Mix things up

Quite often it’s not your messages that are wrong. Take a good look at your profile instead. Perhaps your photos aren’t appealing enough or your profile isn’t interesting.  Try to stand out from the competition and avoid generic statements.  Sell yourself and make the most of the opportunity to attract potential partners.  The more unique you are then the more views you’ll get.

Why not give these ideas a go and see if it makes a difference?

Happy Dating!

Dating Coach Problem Solved: Where should I go on a date?

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

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

Asian Dating Coach

Asian Dating Coach

“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

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

Spring Date Ideas For Asian Singles

spring-2091219_640

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.

Walking

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!

Biking

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!

Your New Year Dating Resolutions

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

So 2017 is here already.  Where does the time go?

love-1945681_640

Like many people, chances are that you’ve made some new year resolutions. For some, this could be to lose weight, get a new job or take up a new hobby.  But for many Asian Singles, you’ve probably also decided that the time has finally come to meet a new partner.

As a Dating Coach, I work with many professional Asian singles to help them find the partner of their dreams.  It’s much easier than you probably think, as long as you have a plan in action.

Here are my top tips for making sure 2017 is your best year ever:

Set Your Goals

What exactly are you looking for and who do you want to meet?  If you want a long term relationship then you have to be clear about exactly what you want.  Write down your intentions and have a long think about who it might be with.  If you don’t know then it’s a good chance to reflect and consider what and who you are aiming for.  That way you’ll know when you finally get there. Be clear and be realistic for faster results.

Get Online NOW

The start of a new year is always going to bring lots of new faces to online dating sites like ours.  So you have to make sure your profile is up to standard if you want to give yourself the best chances of success.  Add some great photos, upgrade and proactively contact the other singles you might be interested in.  Reach out and wish them happy new year or ask them if they have any exciting plans coming up.

Attend some Events

One of the best ways to meet other single Asian professionals is to go to some Asian dating events.  We run lots throughout the year and they provide great opportunities to mingle and get to know new people.  They are all fun, relaxed parties with the very best hosts in the business to look after you. We’ve already booked in some events including our upcoming Valentine’s parties

Tell Your Friends

Psychologists say that you shouldn’t keep your goals to yourself if you want to succeed.  Let all your friends and family know that you are intending to meet someone wonderful this year.  If you do that you’ll have a wide support circle and they’ll be able to help you on your journey.  They can pick you up when you are feeling low and give you a little kick if you need one.  Feel free to blog about your adventures and promote them on social media too.  You never know who is watching.

Stick at It

You aren’t realistically going to meet someone immediately.  Yes it would be lovely to bump into the love of your life tomorrow in the supermarket or fall head over heels for the next person you go on a date with.  The reality is that dating can take time. The more effort you put in now then the better prepared you’ll be.  Give yourself at least 6 months and do everything in your power to make things work.

Happy dating!
