Memorable Momo Dates

In my last post, I briefly mentioned the social app Momo. Well Here is a brief post discussing my most memorable dates or near dates

1) The Drive By- This guy bought his car and looked nothing like the picture. The photo was of a more bad boy with tattoos and this one was clean cut. I refused to get in his car. End of date. Mama didn’t raise a fool.

2) Medicine Boy- We never dated. We just chatted on Momo. This was more of a friend thing. He actually lives in my building. Remember that creepy component I mentioned the gps locator. So I told him I was sick. He asked my symptoms and got me medicine from the pharmacy. We still chat occasionally.

3) Engineer- We went on a date and had a nice dinner. His English level was pretty good. I would have liked to have known him better but we lost contact. This was the guy right after Jason and their jobs were very similar.

4) Cellphone Savior- I liked this guy and we had great kissing connection but I think he was a player. He did save my cellphone when I dropped it in my cappuccino. I love taking pictures of my good. I was so nervous on the date that I dropped my cell in the coffee.

5) I Don’t Speak- He was such a nice guy and very cute. He could not speak a lick of English. We used translator love. Really though men and woman don’t speak the same language. I had a lot of fun on this date.

6) I Speak Very Limited English- this guy was in the clothing industry and he was very very attracted to me. All he could say was,”I want you” Well he didn’t get me. Oh and after the date he sent me a picture of himself in a thong. Oh. No thanks.

7) Coffee Cop- he bought me coffee and fruit but I think he wanted more than coffee. He was really cute and well built but arrogant as hell. I hate arrogant men

8) Stalker- I never met him. He messaged me a couple of times. He is one of the reasons why their built in GPS locator freaks me out. I got a random message like I saw you limping when you got off the bus is something wrong with your foot. Or you little white dog is very lovely. He told me he was too shy to show his face. Sweet in a creepy stalker sort of way.

9) Hotel Guy- he lives in an apartment building right outside my community. It is the same building where the hotel is. This guy is always begging me for sex. He is 32 and divorced. Well at least he is honest. I always say no. He contacts me every few weeks to see if I changed my mind. The answer is always no.

10) Momo- some random guy saw me walking on the street said Momo and winked.

11) Creep- This date was because I got stood up and was hungry. I wanted a free dinner. This guy was big for a Chinese guy and not too attractive. He was an arsehole. He asked me if I was fertile. He told me his ex wife was sterile and no good she didn’t like sex with him so she divorced him. Then he told me I couldn’t get dessert because I was too fat. I hated that bastard. Then when we were leaving he was like where are you going. I am like home. I am going to my home and you are going to yours. I think he was on the autism spectrum he had zero social skills.

I went to the same local restaurant with every single guy. It was a place that I felt comfortable and was near my home. I put a hold to dating after that creep. Then I dated a few men I met in real life settings.

I think Momo is worth a try, it will give you memorable dating stories.

How I Met My Boyfriend

I had many readers ask me me how I met Leon. It wasn’t a chance meeting in the rain. Nor were there violins or birds chirping to signify our love. This is the new millennium not the 1940’s.

We met through the power of technology. In China, they have some nifty social apps for your phone. I got introduced to Weixin, while I was still in the states. It is a great way to talk to people in China. Just make sure you get the international version(it’s in English) My favorite feature is the shake feature. If you are shaking your phone at the exact same time as someone else you can get their profile information.


I am honestly on Weixin (wechat) more than I was ever on Facebook. Now that is scary, I didn’t meet my boyfriend on Weixin but I met other men from there. I even had a few dates after that nut ball Jason. Weixin is really more of a social app. I use it to keep in contact with my friends.

So, yes you can get dates from Weixin but I find that people are more interested in friendship on that app. Now let’s move on to Weixin’s evil cousin called Momo. Momo has the reputation of being the hook up app. It is like China’s Gone Wild.

This is the dating app. Now some men on here have no rules of etiquette. It is like hi you are pretty look at my penis picture. For awhile a few of my friends were having a contest who could collect the most penis photos. In the beginning I only got can you teach me English messages. Then the penis came out!

I never really took Momo seriously. Well it was Momo after all. I did get plenty of dates on a Momo and the guys were actually nice except for one. They were all big men online but in person the total opposites. I definitely will post some of my favorite Momo dates in a separate post. Oh and a Momo has a creepy factor. You can find people based on location. I once had a guy on the street look at me and say , “Momo!” So yeah, I am noticeable on that app.

Well after awhile of dating, I got tired. I wanted a commitment. So I took a breather from Momo. This was when Leon contacted me. I had a post about my dog, he simply stated cute dog. I replied thank you.

He didn’t have a photo up so, I thought nothing of it. He commented on a few my post. So eventually we started chatting more often. Then we exchanged Weixins and chatted daily online.

Leon is the opposite of Jason, where Jason was ashamed of me Leon was proud of me. Leon wanted to be in an interracial relationship. He is just that type of guy that prefers foreign women.

So as we talked more feelings grew and we knew we had to meet. So Leon came to visit me in Hangzhou. He lives in Wuhan. It isn’t that close, it is about 5 hours by the fast train.

I have to say we were smitten with each other. My dog likes him too. I don’t want everyone to think this is a fairytale ending. It is not, we have a lot of challenges to face. I went to visit him in Wuhan as well. That is another
Blog post.

Any of my readers looking to chat with Chinese men find the apps I mentioned. Just know that Momo no longer has an English version. I use the Chinese version, it is tough but just press buttons until you figure this out. It is good fun. My friend used Momo in America and found Chinese men there and went on a few dates. So I encourage you to use both apps they are loads of fun. You never know where you will find love.
