Kevin & Angela’s Story

“I was surprised at how quickly I met Angela – she was my first date from the site! I would recommend EastMeetEast [because] it presents profiles and people in a way that is so familiar and catered to Asians. The moment your eyes meet on the date, the importance of tradition and heritage are already a solid check.”

Kevin, 28, NYC.
