Julia works very hard to make introductions easy for people, she gives you plenty of opportunities you just have to go with it I have quite a few friends who found their husband through Julia over the years. I never used her matching making service but went to her party a few times and they were fab.
Julia is quite intuitive and smart lady. I think she genuinely enjoy doing what she does,which is important in this kind of business. This is for the dance party only as I did not go to the dinner. A few items that were OK: Music was OK, but I have heard much better.
Mixing was horrible and the music selection kind of weird. Now for the Bad: Someone made a LOT of money that night! The worst of it was the bartender who was grouchy and We asked for water in a cup and he said they didn't have any wanted us to buy bottle of water.
Didn't mention that 10 feet to our left was a water cooler for free! Seating was VERY limited. Yes the VIP people had preferred seating, but it would be nice to have a sign on the tables indicating what were VIP tables. Also lots of wall space with NO chairs! The prize draw was an example of how not to do one: Someone attempting to learn how to use PowerPoint at the event with the numbers displayed disappearing and reappearing all the time. We gave up after a while as the prizes were not very good anyway.
This is a real shame, because with a little effort and planning it could have been a really good event! Hard to believe they do this for a living. I met my bf, after I had an hour phone interview. Making sure asking abt the interview ladies. It took me three years on and off with this company before I had interview.
A month after my interview, I was introduced to my "Prince Charming". Wish I did it much earlier. Now we almost together for a year, a happy year. I heard this group from my friend who found a husband from this group and they have a kid now. You can always find somebody here if you take care of yourself and not too picky.
The activities are fun and worthy of the value. It is more human touches in group activities than those from other websites or groups. Julia would arrange carpool, match your activtivity partner by distance.
Always enough food to eat.. I could not stop exploring the activities they offered even through I found somebody interested I have gone to a couple house parties and tried speed dating. The group is friendly and professional. There are lots of good people and its easy to talk to others and make friends. What else can you ask for? If you want to meet quality people this is a good option.
It certainly beats bars and clubs. They offer a safe friendly place to meet. The rest is in your hands Good luck in your search! I smelled of scam immediately after the first call with this woman Julia Ma, especially after viewing all the negative reviews on Yelp. However, she kept calling back and leaving messages. So I decided to have a try. In her office, she showed the pictures of "popular" female members in gaudy sexy costumes, giving tips on how to thrive in her club, such as being "warm" by hugging in the second date.
As a matter of fact, she knows well her own business, of course, I mean about the unmistakable fail. This German guy she introduced, Thomas, is older than she said. All he does seems like he is doing his job. Who knows how many girls this guy has dated under the arrangement of Julia Ma. He himself said he has been in the club for two years! I dont mean you cant see many a person at the same time. But this is just not what a decent guy does when you go to matchmaker and tell everyone that you expect a serious relationship.
And this is defintely not what a decent matchmaker does to collect "introduction" fees while introducing the clearly wrong guy. But the experience sucks. I definitely dont recomment this business if you value your time and hope to meet decent guys. I highly recommend " Your Asian Connections" for those who enjoy outdoor as well as indoor activities.
Julia and Tom host many activities ranging from wine tasting, social parties to outdoor activities such as ski trips. We especially enjoy going to Julia and Tom's ski bus trip. In my experience, it is the best organized ski trip out there.
It is not only affordable, but they also provide food on the bus. Besides that, they also help purchase life tickets,ski lessons etc at a discount rate. The service is very personable and attentive.
I highly recommend them if you are looking for different activities to do. I have attended the parties sponsored by this service, and I have met many of the members. Most of the people I met were pleasant and fun, both men and women. I have also participated in matchmaking.
I told Julia the principal what sort of woman I wanted to meet, and what sorts I wished to avoid. Julia was straight forward in her assessment of my chances of success.
I had to wait a while, but I did eventually meet some very nice ladies. I am very close with one of them the last one, obviously! Frankly, being single in this part of the world is rather grim, especially for us men.
That is beyond Julia's control, but I appreciate that Julia did not waste my time. No introductions to inappropriate candidates occurred. I trust that the women members appreciated this as well.
Your Asian Connection is worth a shot. I suggest that you deal directly with Julia. I highly recommend Your Asian Connection for people who enjoy meeting others in surroundings that are different from the typical social networking events held by many dating organizations.
The club offers both indoor and outdoor activities, and the president of the club Julia attends most of them, providing her personal touch to make attendees feel comfortable. Events run from the casual get-together to an elegant evening of dinner and dancing.
For the more adventurous, there are weekend camping, rafting and hiking trips, as well as overseas excursions to China, Vietnam and other itineraries. I've made several friends through dating members and also established some business contacts. Check out a YAC event when you have a chance!!
My fd told me about their recent Yosemite hiking trip and that was my first time joining their event. I decided to join them just because I have been wanting to hike the Yosemite for so long, and I think it's easier that someone has planed out everything for me.
However, i did end up meeting a lot of nice people there and made some new friends. And the whole trip is a blast! It was loads of fun joining them!
Your Asian Connection is one of many many many I have participated in quite a few of their events. What I like about them is that they offer many activity events outside of matchmaking and also they have a very gracious host Tom.
However, I can not say the same about the president, Julia Ma. Julia is the most unprofessional business person I have ever met. She does not hesitate to RAISE her voice and yell at you in front of others at her events, or kick you off of your chair during speeddating, or reveal your personal information in public.
It is very obvious that she is extremely nice to certain people usually Chinese girls from China or if she likes you. Otherwise, don't expect much. They are like any other dating service. They could either match you up OR you just need to find your own fit at their events. But don't expect to find good customer service from Julia unless she happens to like you.
