)Here’s us, just recently, at Techcrunch Disrupt: At M8, we believe that endorsements and introductions from real-life friends provide an important human dimension to our platform.

My buddy Teddy actually met Linda earlier in the evening, and he took it upon himself to act as a wingman. Again, I didn’t know this back then, but as it turns out, Teddy spoke to Linda before I asked her for her number, and convinced her to give me a shot.
Unbeknownst to me, Teddy had struck up a deal with the event host, and got her to bring me over to Linda’s table as soon as I arrived that night. Yup, when Linda went to the bathroom — between apple martini two and three — Teddy approached her, and asked her about me.“So…what do you think of Steve?
So how does this apply to all the Asian guys out there?
Most Asian guys, like me, will struggle to get matches and right swipes on dating apps. Because society is conditioned to think of Asian guys as nerdy sidekicks, NOT the guys you’d want to date.(I know, I know, Crazy Rich Asians just came out.
17% of US newlyweds were in interracial marriages in 2015, which is a stark increase from the 3% in 1967. That means more than 80% of marriages in the US are still within the same race.

So here’s my personal story: First off, before I met my wife, I was well on my way to becoming a confirmed bachelor. I never had a problem meeting people and was quite social and was always hosting events. Upon arriving at the venue, I said my hellos and was introduced to a woman named Linda. I know it sounds cheesy, but for me, it felt like she was the only person in the room.I learned that she grew up in Seoul, graduated from the Art Center and had just landed a creative director position at an agency.I didn’t want our conversation to end, so I just kept buying her apple martinis — three to be exact. Here’s what I didn’t know: me meeting Linda wasn’t a coincidence.Here’s what this means: Your matches are LESS likely to typecast you as “just another Asian guy”, and they’ll get to know you on a deeper level.Up till today, Linda and I are still talking about that fateful day when we met, and we’re insanely grateful to Teddy for engineering it all.
