I recently had dinner with Hitchoo founder, Yinghan Hu, who intends to reverse the online dating game. What happens next was quite surreal:
Under normal circumstance, I’d have thought to myself, she’s cute, then paid and walked off... Under Yinghan’s Hitchoo-powered circumstance, he whipped out his wallet, took out the familiar brown card, and in a genuine manner, told her “you made my day”.
She was flattered.

Argh! I am just 1 year away from graduation and they are doing this to me! Now I am going to be Single, Demoralised and Unwanted. Darn! I am never going to be able to find someone.

Wit and Spit said:
Back in the day I used the be the most adamant defender of Asian women who dated almost exclusively Caucasian men. "It's a preference," I'd say, "like how some guys prefer redheads." Of course when you've only been in one relationship with one guy for four years (and he's white), you tend to say these things. Five white boys and one Asian later, your perspective changes a little.
These days I don't understand why my yellow sisters pride themselves in hunting white meat.

One Little Twit speaks of the different types of people you could possibly meet on dates...
One classic example is the "The Kiam-Siap Gui". All my friends knew this story of mine and they remembered him fondly as "Big Gulp". This guy had an excellent command of english and when i spoke to him over the phone, he sounded so gentlemanly and so concerned when i told him about my flu. In the end, he pocketed my $1.50 and asked me to treat him a Big Gulp..

Finicky Feline says Singaporean men should date Malaysian girls because:
1) They’re well known for their shununess (some of ‘em anyway) and their beauty. I’ve always heard S’porean men praising M’sian girls, but never the other way around (sorry folks, am just stating the facts)
2) M’sian girls who live in S’pore are usually on their own without their parents. Can stay out late, can stay overnight, no parental interrogations. Sounds like a good deal.
3) Can go to her hometown for a quick getaway and save on accomodation by staying at her parents’ place. Quiet sex is a must though.
