It is not difficult to find an "almost-metric" $d$ that satisfies all axioms of a metric except the triangle inequality. It should also be possible to construct a function $d$ that satisfies all axioms except the symmetry, but I was unable to find one. (But I'm sure there must be one.)
Is there an example of a "almost-metric" that is not symmetric but satisfies the other axioms of a metric (positive-definiteness, triangle inequality)?
To be specific (because $d$ should not be symmetric) we want
$$d(a,b) + d(b,c) \geq d(a,c)$$
to hold. It is certainly interesting to find an example in $\mathbb R^n$ (even if just for a specific $n$) but I'm also interested in other "almost-metric-spaces".
