So, After a few years I decided to to start a blog about my experience related to Asian dating and write you about Asian dating site reviews from my personal experience and at the same time tell you my story, give you tips and tricks to be successful in your journey to the beautiful life with your Asian wife.
I hope you can relate to my life in one way or the other and get some golden nuggets out of it.
A bit of my history first
Let’s start this and we go back some year when I was still married to my ex-wife who was from one of the old soviet union “states”, so let’s just say she had that Russian blood in her. Our marriage lasted almost 10 years, but there was high and lows and looking back there was just too many lows, which made me finally to say that’s enough.
I would say the main reason for the separation and finally for the divorce was her alcohol usage. Not that I had some beers as well (no straight liquor as my head is not made for that stuff), but her problem was that she continued that drinking for a couple of days every time. With the years, it just got worse and my cup just overflowed and I decided to take action by separating first and then filing for divorce, which was the right decision.
If you want to meet some sexy Russian women, beautiful Ukrainian ladies or you want to try some eastern European dating, I believe this website is one of the best ones to try your luck with any of the above Anastasiadate.
I ‘m just saying that I didn’t have that good experience with my ex-wife, but it doesn’t mean that you couldn’t have better luck and if you fancy more the eastern European blondes, then you might as well give it a try and see how it goes.
But enough of that now, let’s focus on the more positive things that has taken place after all of the previous drama.
What did I do to change my life for better?
At the time of my divorce I was at my 40′s, overweight and unemployed living on my savings (mainly 401K) and looking for work from my industry, which is not the easiest one to find work.
Due to the fact that some of my family members had suffered from depression, I kind of had two choices going forward.
- Fall into depression and God knows what would have happened
- Take charge of my life and be ready for a better life
I chose the better choice, and years later I can tell you that I made the right decision.
What I did was I decided to lose 50 pounds in the next 6 months, so I began to eat healthier and exercise. In my opinion your own decision is the most important in anything related to losing weight, quitting smoking, etc., if you yourself don’t decide that you really need to do it and commit into it, don’t even start.
Shortly about my healthier choices.
My healthier eating was very simple;
- I cut sugar away (I used those Truvia sweeteners)
- No soda of any kind (never was a big soda drinker anyway)
- I cut carbs away, no potatoes, macaroni or white bread
- Eat at least 5-6 times a day, but small portions
So, yeah the food got much more leaner and I mostly ate;
- Ready roasted chickens (no skin)
- Grilled pork
- Oven salmon
and similar lean meats full of protein.
Once a week, I did allow myself to eat well, I even ate some thin crust pizza and I even ate in restaurants, just had to keep the carbohydrates to a minimum and I actually drank either ice tea half and half (50% sweet and 50% unsweetened ice-tea) or ice-tea with lemonade 50/50 as well, so no soda even in restaurants.
My snacks included;
- Fuji apples
- Protein bars (these are the best tasting and healthiest you can find)
- Protein powder drink
Now, you might say there is no fun in the food! You might be right, but the fact is that if you really want to lose weight and be healthy this is the way to do it.
My exercise regime was something like this;
After 3 months on my weight losing journey, I had lost ~25 pounds and this was accomplished just by changing my eating habits!
On the 4th month into the weight loss, I got a new job and sun was shining brighter than ever. My new colleague happened to play the sport that I love, which is Squash, so we joined the athletic club in the same building as our office was and began to play squash 3-4 times a week.
Squash is one of the most intensive sports and it burns a huge amount of calories. After the first few weeks, I was playing 1 -1.5 hours straight and I was burning ~1300 – 1500 calories every time, so in an average around 5000 – 6000 calories/week.
My life had taken a turn to a better and I liked it!
But something was missing.
The missing part?
Obviously after being married for almost 10 years, I felt alone and wanted to share my life with someone special.
I am not really a bar or night life guy, so I joined a couple of the biggest dating websites there is;
Man, I’m not going to lie to you, that was not easy after so long out of the market, but I did have a few dates, though just lunches and dinners, but something just didn’t feel right.
One evening I was thinking that why it didn’t feel right and what should I do?
Then I remembered my business trips during the early part of my career to Asia and especially those Asianbeauties I met in Thailand and Singapore.
Then I understood why a few of my friends have Asian wives and I realized that hey, Asian girls like white guys, I love Asian ladies and especially beautiful Thai women/Thailand girls, so this was something to move forward with.
That kind of triggered my brain into a whole new gear and I started to plan how to get myself an Asian girlfriend and eventually maybe even a good Asian wife.
I was on high gear to take care of the missing part!
So, my brain was in the new gear and I went on and did some “Googling” and came across with ThaiLoveLinks website, which by the way has changed it’s name to Thaicupid.com.
I did some research on that website and it seemed legit, so I filled in my profile and used my new pictures I had taken after losing those pounds (I had lost ~35 pounds at that time and was still going strong).
I did sign up for the Gold membership, since I was serious about it and after all it’s a small fee anyway. This allows you to “be in control” and to message freely back and forth for any level of membership holders.
Here I want to take the opportunity to say that, in general, if you are really serious about finding a girlfriend and possibly a wife, do not skim on the membership fees! There are very good reasons why there is a memberships, they do offer you the benefits which enables you to find the right one. But you do have to be serious about it as well!
OK, back to the website…My first Impression was that it had plenty of single Asian women, mainly Thailand women as the name indicated.
Almost instantly I started to receive those messages from some of the hot Thai women there and I messaged them back and soon realized that most of them were using online translators to translate their messages from Thai to English. These messages just didn’t make any sense, they were like gibberish and I thought that this is just waste of time.
This was kind of a turnoff and what I usually did was, I messaged them back and told them nicely thank you, but I also suggested to them to learn English and then come back if they are serious about meeting “Farang“.
This went on for a few weeks and I started to feel a bit desperate. I even joined another Asian girls dating site called Asiandating.com, which was a bit broader having beautiful Asian women from the number of Asian countries. This website had plenty of Filipino and Korean women women looking for men, but I didn’t seem to find the right one.
When is this desperation over?
So, after a few weeks, I was dating Thai women online and chatting with some Thai girls, but there was no spark nor fireworks, so I started to think if my criteria is too strict. I went back and checked if there was something I could change, but there wasn’t. It simply was the fact that there was no one I liked available.
Then, one day this Thai girl sent me an interest thru the ThaiLoveLinks and when I opened her profile, I knew this was something special.
We immediately started to chat and message and her English was surprisingly good, so I had to confirm she was really writing by herself and not using any translations. And the result was YES she was, so the first check box was checked.
So, this concludes my Asian Dating Site Reviews, I hope you enjoyed it so far and I hope it help you to meet girls online.
