Dating In Taipei: #The Kinky Brown Girl Hater

His first tinder picture was a gym selfie. Why? Just why. But I had a sneaking intuition that Kinky Brown Girl Hater was much more than an iron pumper, as it said he was a ‘Founder and Managing director’ and his other pics showed him speaking to a TV camera in a suit and on…

Dating In Taipei: Mr Zero-To-One Hundred

Before this, I had never dated a Taiwanese guy. Or a Chinese guy, or a Japanese guy. So I was a little nervous before going on a date with Mr Zero-To-One Hundred.

Dating In Penang: #The Ultimate Hipster Nomad

Dating in Penang adventure no.3 was oddly inspiring and a teeny bit weird. The Ultimate Hipster Nomad looked like that Australian guy that looks French in ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ a little in his pictures – Simon Baker.
