Chris Quyen, a university pupil, photographer and creative movie director from Sydney, states his or her earlier interest in online dating ended up being influenced by a desire to easily fit in.
"There's always this fine pressure level to fit right in and assimilate, so when I found myself maturing, I thought the simplest way to assimilate would be to evening a white in color person," he says.
That brought him or her to downplay his history and demonstrate himself as something more important.
"throughout that level of living, I used bluish contacts, we dyed my own hair gothic, I chatted with a very Aussie emphasis I'd try to dispel my very own lifestyle," Chris claims.
For Melbourne-based hip-hop singer Jay Kim, this approach to dating is actually clear, but not without their problems.
