Asian dating site for black men
A little over a year later, Maltempo married a woman he met on the site.
But dating — online or off — was hardly a smooth experience.
Montecillo, whose parents are Filipino, was born in New York and spent 13 years living in Hong Kong.
“Even if you give them a little bit of room in terms of looks, that still leaves a really high bar for Asian men to be considered attractive at all.” To improve his success rate on Match.com, Maltempo created a rule for himself.
Rather than cast a wide net, he would message just one woman per week.
He asked himself: “Would people notice [me] if I was a large bearded white guy who likes hiking? I don’t need it in online dating, too.] After nearly three years on Ok Cupid, Montecillo met his current girlfriend, who is Caucasian.
His approach was to emphasize his interests (he and his girlfriend are both big fans of Radiotopia podcasts); and keep his profile short but interesting.
