If it worked out, we might arrange subsequent dates; otherwise the interactions just fizzled.Falling below expectations Of the first few men I went on dates with, a San Francisco-based Chinese guy came closest to my criteria.I've never been cheated on, but it does feel sucky to chat with someone only to discover I've wasted my time with a potential conman.Personally, I get a kick out of unmasking their deception.I wanted someone with a global mindset, preferably an American-born Chinese (ABC) who should not be more than five years older.He had to have a decent education, with at least a diploma.I had a particularly memorable date with an architect from Detroit who was in town for an event.

First dates usually involved getting to know each other over a meal.
