    Online Metrics from @AYIDating

    Love don’t cost a thing—or does it? Online dating site AYI.com examined nearly 1.5 million interactions between their users to determine what income level draws the most attention from potential matches.

    As it turns out, the gold digger concept is alive and well for both genders—but in different ways. 

    For women looking for men on AYI.com, every dollar counts:

    ·      A man’s chance of being contacted by a woman increases steadily as his income increases.

    ·      Men that listed their income as $150,000 or more being 82% MORE likely than men who made $20,000 or less to get contacted by a woman.


    For men seeking women on AYI.com, income doesn’t play as large of a role—until the woman makes a significant amount of money, that is.

    ·      A woman’s chance of being contacted by a man takes a big leap when her income rises above $100,000.

    ·      Women who listed their income as $150,000 or more were actually 65% MORE likely than women who earned $20,000 to get contacted by a man.

    Hoping to score the sugar daddy or sugar mommy of your dreams? Strike up a conversation about Mark Cuban, Barclays UK, Jim Cramer or the Wall Street Journal, as those are the top interests for financial singles on AYI.com. However, avoid mentioning Warren Buffet and Goldman Sachs, since these controversial topics totaled less than 300 likes from AYI.com singles combined.

    Get Your Asian Girl

    I read this from Stuff White People Like:
    Men love asian women so much that they will go to extremes such as stating that Sandra Oh is sexy, teaching English in Asia, playing in a coed volleyball league, or attending institutions such as UBC or UCLA.

    Asian women also avoid key white women characteristics such as having a mid life crisis, divorce, and hobbies that don’t involve taking care of the children 

    *True* But as an Asian girl do I like it that I am hotter than then latest Birkin bag? Why would I want to be the trophy Asian wife? I am not a commodity or am I?  After a few weeks of using dating sites and a few years of random dating. I have come to this conclusion. I really love and want to be single with great friends. Real friends and not conditional bullshit pseudo relationship where I upgrade you and you exhaust me.  I use Facebook. I love to see how I am really good and predicting the future. Especially how many a suitors who tried to convince me that I was the perfect (asian) girl for them… But their recently Facebook photos prove otherwise. Well, what I can say, its the smartest people who recognize patterns the fastest. And I think I see one. All my friends date asian girls. I’m serious. So get your asian girl…BUT listen to me when I tell you I ain’t her.




    Did I miss anyone? Sorry!
    Then I read this: It is not easy establishing a connection with an Asian girl, if you do not know what to say. Francis K. Githinji Is An Online Dating Expert. His Latest Project Dating Asian Girls Shows How The Power Of Online Dating Can Be Harnessed Internationally and With Great Success  —- really now?  LOL… How about if you are a nice person with genuine shared interests and worldviews? That might be a start… now enjoy your Sunday!

    *HeyDoYou is for the cute, clever and connected*

    Letters from the Sea

    Somedays when you are tired of being single, you can join a dating site and get messages like this:

    I am looking for someone like you…But then again, so is everyone else.
    You seem confident and straightforward — impressive by anyone’s standards.
    So why write me back?
    There are plenty of folks who are pleasing to the eye, but I am also a down-to-earth person who can have an intelligent conversation.
    I’m upbeat, funny, well-educated and sane! Easy going with a smile to match.
    I treat people the way I want to be treated–with respect.
    On the weekends, I play tennis, ride my bike, go to the beach, catch a movie . . . you know, normal stuff.
    I think we’d get along well, and I’d love to hear from you.
    Regards, Simon

    No Scrubs

    Look, I am not a grammarian but spelling mistakes bother me. Typos get no love from me, hanging off the side of their best friend’s ride, trying to hollar at me…
