After working and studying in London for three and a half years, I returned to Singapore in 1998, aged 25. I had a limited social life back in the UK – my colleagues were attached or married, and my Asian friends had gone home to their respective countries – so I spent many weekends by myself. Online dating was coming into fashion, and I was excited about giving this new avenue a shot.

A friend introduced me to dating site Asia Friendfinder, which connects Asian singles online for US a month.

We chatted for six months before meeting up in San Francisco for a meal when I was en route to Mexico for a holiday. Although we lived miles apart, it wasn’t an issue because I was cool with the idea of relocation if it came to that.

But midway, he told me rather bluntly that he preferred slimmer girls. Subsequently, I met other men who were very specific about appearance – and their criteria tended to be ‘tall, slim and with long hair’.

The message I wanted to get across was: ‘If you’re up for the challenge, great.

I’d been on more than 90 dates online and offline, with only five to seven men being real potentials.

We were dating exclusively and it felt like it was going somewhere.
