Johnny’s visa gets denied

29-year-old Ella, from Idaho Falls, Idaho, met 34-year-old Johnny from Jinan, China, on a dating site exclusively from white women seeking to meet Asian men. Ella calls Johnny her “Asian Prince” and hopes to take the next step in their relationship by meeting up together.

However, with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic keeping Ella from visiting Johnny in China, he planned to be with Ella in the US and possibly propose to her. His plan to go to the US involved a two-week quarantine in Singapore.

However, after finding out that his visa was denied, they were forced to rethink their strategy to see each other. Ella wants Johnny to meet her in Dubai. However, after his family becomes concerned, he’s worried about making the right choice.
