The Short Version: Asia’s dating culture presents a daunting challenge for Western singles unfamiliar with the social norms that dictate success or failure. If you don’t know the rules, how can you play the game well? Fortunately, Asia Dating Experts offers a variety of educational resources to show men the right way to go about picking up an Asian date. From the blog to the forums, the company helps international daters better understand and attract women in Seoul, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Shanghai, Beijing, and other cities in the Far East. Hundreds of singles have signed up for personalized training seminars to hone their skills in text messaging, body language, and relationships. If you’re feeling outside your comfort zone in the Asian dating scene, a consultation with Asia Dating Experts can give you the tools and strategies to reach your dating goals in no time.

When Martin Williams, more commonly known on the internet as RedpoleQ, moved to Japan in 2000, he imagined attractive women would fawn over him. He’d be the mysterious Westerner with his pick of dates. However, his first year humbled him as he struggled to woo Asian women. He couldn’t get any dates in his new home.

“Even with my admittedly low standards at the time, I wasn’t happy with my situation at all,” he wrote about those early days. “Every day, I passed hundreds of beautiful girls I didn’t have a chance with.”

Instead of getting down on himself, Martin dedicated his energy to bettering his dating and interpersonal skills. He started networking with other single men like him and learning from their mistakes and triumphs. Six years later, Martin had transformed into a confident dater who could pick up Asian women without breaking a sweat.

In 2007, thanks to the encouragement of a friend, Martin decided to start running coaching programs to help other Westerners achieve the same success in Asia’s dating culture. He founded a dating consulting company called PickUp Asia and taught the art of getting a date to hundreds of single men in Tokyo, Osaka, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore, Taipei, Bangkok, and Hong Kong.

As time went by, Martin noticed his clients kept coming back for advice about what to do after the first date. They wanted to know how to keep the spark alive and get in a relationship with Asian women. Simply getting a date was only part of the story. Martin realized Western singles needed a more comprehensive dating resource, so he launched Asia Dating Experts to train daters in every aspect of landing a date and keeping a relationship.

Thanks to Asia Dating Experts, singles can improve themselves and learn how to attract Asian women.

Today, Asia Dating Experts has helped men as young as 15 and as old as 62 develop a solid dating strategy. The company’s online resources, training seminars, and individual coaching bring clarity to a foreign social scene. The team’s expert advice applies to any foreigner living and dating in Asia. Martin has even worked with a few bisexual women interested in attracting Asian women.

“Dealing with women is interesting because they have the same problems, but approach it from a different angle,” Martin said. “Guys are a lot simpler, more straightforward, and focused on the result.”

From reading body language to sending funny text messages, the Asia Dating Experts team equips singles to get a date in the Far East. Martin told us a lot of the company’s success stems from its close working relationship with so many diverse people. “Over 10 years, we’ve grown with our clients,” he said. “We’ve created an entire framework according to what our clients say they need help with in the dating world.”

Training Seminars & Podcasts Address Dating, Sex & Relationships

Asia Dating Experts employs a small crew of knowledgeable men who have firsthand experience in the Asian dating scene. Martin has networked with fashion experts and relationship gurus in different parts of Asia to bring a variety of skill sets to hands-on dating workshops. Martin described the popular dating seminars as intense and effective learning opportunities for international daters.

Every year, Asia Dating Experts travels to the All Asia Summit to conduct helpful seminars and network with potential clients. The event attracts hundreds of leading experts and eager participants. Asia Dating Experts sends its best speakers to give valuable dating pointers to the singles seeking guidance there.

In addition to trainings, Asia Dating Experts provides engaging and accessible resources geared toward single men in Asia. Blog posts deal with subjects on everything from the first meeting to the first sexual encounter to the final vows. Whether you’re interested in learning more about open relationships or what gangnam style really means, the blog keeps the conversation light and provides information relevant to Asian daters.

In every training session and podcast episode, Asia Dating Experts focuses on the specifics of Asian dating culture. Texting is a major part of modern single life, and so the dating coaches spend a lot of time explaining how to send the right message on your phone. The Text Message 101 training program covers the basic tactics and concepts involved in a successful text game. “When you’re dating an Asian girl, you have to text her every day, often multiple times a day,” Martin said. “So it’s important to do that well.”

Asia Dating Experts covers a range of social topics to give people plenty of resources to learn how dating in Asia works. You can find their podcast episodes on iTunes and Soundcloud.

At the end of the day, these professional consultants can help newcomers understand the dating dynamics at work in Asian culture. Martin works hard to get singles up to speed so they can get the results they want in any setting. “The biggest area most people overlook when they think about dating is what kind of person would match their life best,” he said. “Really, they should be looking for a person who’s good for their lifestyle.”

On Members-Only Forums, Singles Find the Answers They Need

In addition to expert resources, Asia Dating Experts offers man-to-man advice from peers online. The Entourage Forums is a private online space where members can sign up to ask questions and get recommendations from experienced daters. The forum has seen over 25,000 total posts on over 4,000 topics. Some of the chat groups are location-specific, so it’s a great tool for locals.

The Entourage Forums facilitates conversations about Asian dating experiences and tips.

You can also submit a question to the Asia Dating Experts and get a personalized answer within 48 hours. The expertise of this team gives unsure men insight into the traditions, venues, and nuances of Asian dating so they can understand what’s going on behind the scenes.

“The most important thing to consider in Asia is that girls need to feel like you really like them because they are generally insecure,” advised Kane Vast in an article about Asia’s main cultural differences. “Asian girls focus on how much you care about them and want to stay with them.”

Overall Self-Improvement Leads to Romantic Success

Martin told us his favorite success story began with an unusual client asking if there was hope for him. A single 25-year-old man came to them because he’d never dated anyone before; he’d never even held a woman’s hand. He felt undesirable and hopeless because of a physical deformity that left him with only two toes on each foot and three fingers on each hand. He didn’t think he could get a girlfriend because of how he looked.

“I thought it was theoretically possible,” Martin said. “Generally, Asian women don’t care as much about looks as guys do, but it’s definitely a factor.” He took on the challenge and hoped his advice would yield a positive experience for his client.

“Thanks for the guidance! I am crazy excited to see her face to face.” — JustMike, a single man commenting on

Asia Dating Experts got to work helping the single man develop his confidence and communication style. The client was a quick study. Within three months, he lost his virginity. Sometimes, a change in perspective can do worlds of good for a person’s dating attitudes and behaviors.

“Difference leads to success,” a former client under the initials W.Y. wrote on the site. “I view myself as a different guy now, and I can look at the people around me and feel special, different, confident.”

Asia Dating Experts Helps You Raise Your Dating Game Abroad

A little knowledge can go a long way to further personal connections. Once Martin understood the social dynamics of his surroundings, he thrived in the Japanese dating scene. Now he passes on his experiences and takeaways to help other men adapt to Asia’s unique dating culture.

Asia Dating Experts offers a dating boot camp where international travelers can develop the skills necessary to score a date in Asia. Thousands of men have used this in-depth resource to learn what to expect from single Asian women, maximize their dating potential, and become more capable and confident in all aspects of life.

“When people start doing better in their lives, they’re more fun to be around,” Martin explained. “To have clients come in, take the courses, and change their lives is exciting. It’s amazing to be part of that positive energy.”
