Documentary about internet dating

A great diversity of online dating services currently exists.

Some have a broad membership base of diverse users looking for many different types of relationships.

This engaging documentary follows their tumultuous love story.

MORE For years, twice-divorced airport garage attendant Steven has been writing to numerous women through an online dating site that specializes in connecting Western men with Asian women. He falls for a 24-year-old woman across the Pacific entirely through pictures and email.

Steven and Sandy negotiate cross-cultural differences huddled around Google Translate as they try to communicate despite an enormous language barrier.

While they attempt to work out the significant bumps in their relationship, filmmaker Debbie Lum finds herself becoming more than an outside observer: Steven and Sandy begin to rely heavily on Lum to bridge the large gap between their two disparate cultures.“One day Steven calls me in desperation,” Lum says. I rush over to film them — but quickly become enlisted as translator using the broken Mandarin I learned in college.

Online dating (or Internet dating) is a system that enables strangers to find and introduce themselves to new personal connections over the Internet, usually with the goal of developing personal, romantic, or sexual relationships.
