Carolyn & Hanh
Happily Ever After


Finding a suitable lifelong partner was on the 2015 New Year's Resolution List for the both of us. Little did we know that we'd meet up as a result. The two of us had turned to online dating due to the difficulties of meeting other like-minded individuals. It's hard for two pharmacists (well, one pharmacist and a pharmacist-to-be at the time) to meet other people outside of our non-traditional work schedules. After many attempts through various online dating sources (i.e., Match.com, Coffee Meets Bagel, Tinder), we both found ourselves on a website called EastMeetEast.

Binh & David
Live Stream Love


I joined EastMeetEast for the live streaming, which I did very often. It was amusing to be able to interact with a community of people like me and I was able to be my raw self and more. I found it meaningful to invest time into EastMeetEast since it catered to Asians. When it comes to online dating, no one knows exactly what they want but it is a start to discovering what you want. Compared to other dating apps, EastMeetEast attracts users who are more cultural and/or know where they want to begin and this creates a commonality for all users on the app from the beginning. About 3 months into streaming, I met David.

Belle & Matt
Filipino Blessing In Canada


Initially, I liked East Meet East because it was a free Asian-based platform. I discovered it’s also easy to use, mobile friendly, and you can categorize guys by distance, height, religion, etc. I could just smile at guys and wait for them to make the next move. After my first relationship through the site, I decided to work on myself and focus more on my faith. I wanted to wait for that special person and be content with being single in the meantime. I kept the app, though, thinking maybe I could still meet someone who shared my background and love for God. After all, I had found someone on East Meet East once before.

Jimmy & Nikki
Despite the Long Distance


I don't know what compelled me to click on Nikki’s profile and send her a message, but it turned out to be one of the best dating decisions I’ve ever made. She was from New York and her profile had one simple line: "Date me~ I'm amazing”. This was my first time doing online dating so I wasn’t set on finding a romantic relationship. I just thought it would be nice to make a new friend in New York.

Andrew & Sara
When Destiny Calls (or Messages)


Call it destiny but I was the first person she received a message from. She joined the site one day out of the blue and when I messaged her, a reply came back minutes later. After messaging a few times, we agreed to meet. We both preferred Asians and although we weren’t specifically looking, the site increases your chances of connecting with one.

Sharing Quirky Asian Hobbies in NYC


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...

Collegiate Love


It was a magical experience meeting John — I never expected to meet someone so special and creative. We met a few weeks after I created my account on EastMeetEast. I like EastMeetEast’s Asian-culture oriented concept, which I learned from Youtube video I watched. I had not been able to meet John without EastMeetEast for sure...
