asian dating

AsianDating.com

Although AsianDating.com does encourage individuals to join who are looking for Asians or those from an ethnic background, the website does not exclusively adhere to Asians only so you may find a lot of Western singles on the site as well. AsianDating.com is part of the Cupid Media network of dating websites which was established back in 2000. The website has a modern purple and white color scheme to it, it is free to join, and the interface is incredibly easy to use.

According to the site, it is the leading Asian Dating website on the market with over 2.5 million members. A free membership to the site allows you to review your matches for free, create a personalized profile where you can add photographs, browse through photos of other members based on their interests, lifestyle preferences or location, and you are able to receive mail from other members. The website has an automated matching system and you can filter searches by member appearance, cultural background, and even the last known date that they signed on at.

Unfortunately, you are not able to read messages from free members, are not able to instant message, are not able to add personal information in messages, and are not able to send or read video mail without a paid membership. One month of paid membership costs around $29.99 a month.

blossoms.com

Blossoms.com

Blossoms is an ethnic Asian dating website that was founded way back in 1974. It is one of the oldest ethnic dating websites available online and the website design and navigation shows its age. However, unlike newer websites, the Cherry Blossoms website does not have confusing or complicated sub-menus to navigate through.

The website is free to join and the membership gives you access to personalized matches, the ability to view thousands of member profiles, and the ability to create your own profile. As a free member, you can send smiles, play in the top ten questions mini-game, upload up to twelve photographs of yourself, and connect with others through instant messenger, chat, and e-mail. According to the website, Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, and Filipino women are in abundance on the site but you may also find women from Ukraine, Russia, and South America. The website does prohibit any women from signing up from Canada or the United States, but does allow men to sign up from these countries. Unlike other dating websites, Cherry Blossoms is more of a social database of singles and has created over 250,000 happy couples since its inception.

Areas of improvement include an explanation as to why they take PayPal since there does not seem to be any paid features with the only explanation being donations, and a site re-design/aesthetic update. Other than this, the website does offer fiancee Visas.

asiame

AsiaMe.com

Asiame is like many other dating websites online, it has all of the same professional services including calling, live chat, cam sharing, gifting, and flowers. Asiame is considered an international dating site that aggregates a large database of verified singles that are specifically from Asia.

You can communicate with individuals via instant messaging, e-mail, express mail forwarding, and love calls which allow you to talk with one another through a phone service. The dating website does provide translating services for those who get matched with others who speak a different language. The website also has a date request feature, which allows you to invite any woman out on a real date in the real world and if she does not show up, you get your fee refunded. You can even browse the website anonymously by activating this setting in your account settings, but in order to browse you have to upload a photograph and get it approved.

Unfortunately, the website is a paid-for-website, meaning you have to pay to use the majority of the services they provide. A major downside to the website is that Asiame uses a credit system, where you buy credits for money which are needed for many of the features on the site.

eastmeeteast

EastMeetEast.com

East Meet East is a North American dating website that caters specifically to the Asian community. The website states that it is the number one premier Asian dating website, with over 53,000 happy partners and has been featured on AsiaTechHub, 51NYC, and World Journal. The website aims to create relationships that are filled with passion and happiness, by matching individuals who have mutual backgrounds and interests.

The website has a unique community in that it only allows in those who are of the same cultural background, it allows searchable profiles, and it provides customized matches every week which are delivered to your inbox. You can find profiles based on age, location, language, dialects, and hobbies, and are matched with a one-on-one match per week.

East Meet East allows women to sign up for free which automatically marks them as a “premium member” which means that they can read and send messages for free. Unfortunately for men, this is not the case as men need to pay for a premium membership to chat and read messages. The sign up process is incredibly simple as all you need to include is anything you want in your profile, such as your interests, body type, faith, and languages you speak. Features include advanced search functions, send and receive smiles to become mutual matches, and even the ability to save profiles for later viewing.

One area that can be improved upon is the security features for blocking and hiding profiles.

elite singles

EliteSingles.com

Although Elite Singles is not specifically targeted towards Asian women and men, it does have a worldwide influence, operating in over twenty countries and matching an average of 2,000 couples a month. Elite Singles is designed around professionals who are looking for long-term relationships. This means that you will need a high level of education if you are to be approved for the website.

The top features of the site include easy to use communication tools like the 5 ice-break questions, smiles to indicate interest, and an inbox messaging system. Beyond this, you can receive three to seven daily match suggestions and if you signup as a premium member, you can unlock up to twenty wildcard matches a day. Only users who are able to see your profile are ones who are potential matches and no photographs can be copied or downloaded from the site.

Areas for improvement include the fact that most members are over the age of thirty which is a huge disadvantage for younger individuals, users cannot search for manual matches, the free membership is quite limited and there is no video or instant chat features. Beyond this, if you are signing up on desktop you are going to have an easier time than if you try to sign up using their mobile application.

eharmony

eHarmony.com

eHarmony has long been known as one of the top “go-to” dating websites for finding long-lasting and true love. The backbone of eHarmony is its matching system which is based on a unique 29 dimension compatibility system. Unlike newer dating websites, eHarmony sticks to its roots and only adapts and updates its data-driven features to ensure that you get truly compatible matches. User-experience is one hundred percent personalized to the individual, but is slower than other dating websites because of how calculated the matches are.

Key features include a compatibility matching system, personalized dashboard, in-depth profile pages with personality traits, handpicked matches on a daily basis, and guided communication options. The website is rather easy to navigate but be prepared for a lengthy sign up process as you will go through a visual-pleasing personality questionnaire and fill in basic information which can take up to an hour to complete.

When it comes to areas of improvement, the main issue that people have is that the cost of services can get rather expensive. In the United States and Canada, you can pay on a 3,6, and 12-month subscription, whereas, in the UK, you can pay on a 1,3,6, and 12-month subscription. Other than this, you cannot search the site at all or even browse it as all interactions are limited to members that you are matched with; this can be quite a shock if you are coming from other dating sites that allow free communication.

match.com

Match.com

Although Match isn’t an exclusively Asian dating website, it does have a large user base that have ethnic backgrounds. It is one of the most recognizable dating websites on the web and has been in business for over twenty-three years. What makes Match different than other dating websites is that it takes into account what your expressed wants are versus what you say you want. For instance, if you put that you want to meet a blonde on your questionnaire but you are continuously looking at redheads, Match will take this into account and start filtering redheads into your searches. Essentially, with each consecutive login, Match will learn about who you are and fine tune your profile and matches to what you truly want.

Features include member discovery, one-on-one communication, extensive search and discovery opportunities, and new features always being added like Top Spots, Improve My Profile, and ProfilePro.

Unfortunately, approval on the site is not instant, it is a paid website so there is a month-to-month fee, and the online to offline processes can be lengthy. The website has a data-backed matching algorithm, smartly-designed search options, a smart inbox, hand-picked daily matches, profile verification options, and a matching system which rewards members for being active.

The community includes those of Chinese, Taiwanese, Cantonese, Japanese, Korean, Indian, Filipino, Thai, and multi-racial nationalities.

The website classifies itself as more of a dating and social networking website, meaning it caters to those who are looking for casual dating, hookups, friendships, and long-term relationships. The website removes profiles that have been inactive for six months or longer. Other than this, when you sign up you are able to browse through profiles, join chat rooms, create and read blogs, get personalized matches, and even get free online dating advice from the magazine section of the website. If you choose to become a premium member, you will get six months free if you sign on for a twelve month membership, and you will have access to organized group events within your area where you can meet other like-minded singles.

Unfortunately, as a free member you cannot see full sized pictures of members, you cannot communicate or see detailed profiles, which are all areas that need improvement.

Interracial Match

InterracialMatch.com

Interracial Match was founded back in 2001 and is one of the oldest interracial communities on the internet. The website looks to bring together couples of different ethnic backgrounds together by allowing members to communicate and interact in a Facebook style interaction method; or better known as a dating forum. Beyond this, the community is very large and incredibly active, with numerous blogs, forums, and videos that everyone comments on and posts.

Features include a Tinder-style meet feature for local matches, a large user base, public comments on profiles, the ability to keep photos private, and a huge amount of monthly visitors. Users are able to restrict who can view their profiles as well as block others and report any instances of abuse.

Members are allowed to upload twenty-six photographs of themselves, however an area of improvement would be to allow users to sign up without using their Facebook login. In addition to this, the website could improve adding in a chat system or an instant messenger like system. Right now you can e-mail, send winks, comment on others’ profiles and even send birthday cards. Unfortunately, it’s extremely pricing when compared to other sites on the web with one month being $39.95.

Asians4Asians

Asians4Asians.com

Asians 4 Asians is a United Kingdom Asian dating website that has been around since 2008. The website aims to help British Asians find romance, fun and adventure, and casual relationships with others and has over 35,000 registered members.

This basic option allows you to create a profile, search and view everyone who is on the website, and send and receive waves as the primary form of communication. You can also respond to and read messages that are sent from paying or premium members.

One of the features available is the ability to hide your profile from your account settings and the fact that your profile picture will only be available to registered members. There are two pricing options, with the smallest option starting at £8.49 a month.

Unfortunately, a lot of features are locked behind the membership options including: message booster, iDcheck, event pass, and profile highlight. An upside is that free members can purchase tickets for padlock parties and speed dating events. Using the website is simple and easy and sign up only takes a few minutes as there are no in-depth personality tests.
