I'm an EGG (white on the outside, yellow(E.Asian) on the inside). No choice, it's genetic. Not only do I love E. Asian food, nearly all my friends&romances­ are Asian. Among Asians, I feel at home. And I’d enjoy meeting more Asian buds & ladies.

MFTRef: HOW EXACTLY DID U HEAR OF US? -as URL of the web page we're listed on,as search URL&query-string, or referrer's profile URL&online name. AND WHAT EXACTLY CAUSED U TO WANT TO JOIN US? Please be exact-as-possible so we know what&whom to credit.

Don't remember exactly since the group didn't originally ask this question, so I added it :-) But I do think I saw it listed on someone's Meetup groups.

MFWBak: Here all backgrounds r WELCOME! (1)WHAT'S UR ETHNIC/RACIAL MIX & %s? (2)WHAT AGE DID U MOVE2 U.S.? -"0"if US-born (3)WHAT AGE DO PEOPLE GUESS U R only by lookin@u? (4)Subtractin that from the present year, WHAT'S UR _APPARENT_ YEAR OF BIRTH?

(1) Born in the US (though I generally best with foreign born folks). (2) White: my mother is German+Icelander; my father is English+French. I'm mostly like an Icelander except for my Asian genetic flip. (3) ~32 so apparent YOB 1978.


(1) Have members be like our logo: a close group of friends. :-) (2) I like dances with mostly 80s music, dinners, movie nights, festivals. (3) Work my butt off listing & emailing 10s of events for everyone (I'm not a natural at this; please help!)

MFWLdr: (optional) What three things would you recommend to all Organizers do to help create a successful Group?

My vote: more events near me (S.OC) plus events like & sound great.

What DestinyArchitect is saying about this Meetup Group

2010.07.07: If you only come else RSVP for events, this group will be a success! Due to the original founders, it's got an impressive-looking roster (239 members & growing every week, all in Orange else LA county, mostly looking 20s thru 30s, mostly Asian BUT not just) & a great name (AsianFriendsters). However mbrs got totally burnt out (0 RSVPs), seemingly from the founders hosting events that mbrs didn't want (MLM money-making schemes, `pay $15 to hear me sing', etc). However in 2010.05 I DestinyArchitect bought the group, saving it from total eternal deletion, and thru days of unpaid work, including individually messaging 20+ mbrs, a new logo & defining direction, plus great Ideas of mbrs (as Jay's 2010 4th of July Day/Night Debauchery in Huntington Beach! - incredible) plus mbrs stepping up to be Event Organizers, the group is very slowly coming back to life. And presently we've got 7 mbrs recently RSVPing: me, Jay, Noah Rappaport, Kat, Krystal, Adi, & Sir WilI-I'am --Yeah!

    Hi DestinyArchitec­t! yes, we welcome allies of any sexual orientation. There are gay and straight members, for instance, who have learned a lot about bisexuality from their participation in the group and come to our events because they enjoy the activities and enjoy our company :) so no worries! and welcome!

    I don't know what what sort of "consent" you think I need, or what "warning" I need to give in order to start my own meetup group. Furthermore, I haven't the slightest idea why I would need to "explain [myself]" to you.

    Like I said over a week ago, if you have something more you would like to discuss then you can email me.
