Met on DateInAsia

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance and I met on the date in asia website.  I am just getting worried now for our interview we will have in the future if they ask about that site. Maybe I am just worrying too much, but I don't want them to think we purposely  were both looking for a foreign partner as that was not the case.  Does anyone think this will be an issue? An if so what should I say if they ask about it?

It was an IMBRA as we were not setup and I didn't pay a penny for anything on the site it was all free.  I guess I can bring that information and the TOS just incase.  Thanks.

my wife and I did also, it caused absolutely no problems. As noted earlier you can satisfy the IMBRA requirements with the TOS.

 

This is absolutely no problem, do not overthink it, you will drive yourself crazy

My fiancee and I met on that same site in 2015, I am not worried in the least meeting her there only thing I did not send in a TOS for the site which clearly states it is not a pay for bride site, in fact as you know it is 100% free. Just print out the sites TOS and make sure your fiancee has a copy during her interview if they ask about the site. They can always ask for RFE in at which time we can show it then, but hopefully they won't. I would not sweat it to hard, we'll be fine.
