dateinasia review

DateInAsia.com is a highly popular site that is 100% free to register. At the No. 2 spot this is quite something. The other free sites reviewed here are AsiaFuns.com and AsianPersonalsMatch.com. These alternative free sites are simple, with limited features but a high turnover. DateInAsia.com by comparison is a clean, friendly, highly popular site. DateInAsia.com’s appearance seems to be designed to appeal to females more than males, and the tag line “Love Knows No Borders” suggests romance and marriage, though people come here for all types of relationships. The demographic here seems to be mostly South East Asia, particularly the Phillipines, and boasts 1,172,805 registered members, so there’s a good chance of getting a date.

DateInAsia.com also clearly caters for Western men who want to hook up with Eastern women, so some may say it falls into the category of Mail Order / Foreign Bride website. If you are interested in that niche, then please see our reviews in the category of Mail Order Bride Websites before signing up with DateInAsia.com, as some of the more specialized Mail Order Bride sites may suit you better.

DateInAsia has Female members from all over Asia including Malaysia, China, Thailand, Philipines, Indonesia and more, but its Thai women and Filipina women who use the site most. DateInAsia does not have a lot of features, but has the usual basic amenities. You can set up a free profile, fill out personal information about height, weight, job and so on. it’s only possible to upload one picture and it’s automatically cropped to only be a headshot. It is possible to send signs of interest to other members as well as messages trough the sites internal mail system. There’s basic search options based on location, sex and age, but that’s it.

Navigation is easy and hassle free. The adverts are unobtrusive and relevant to the online Asian dating scene. Registration is short and painless and e-mail verification doesn’t take long. Once registered and logged in, your profile becomes your pretty pink home page. This sports your photo, which you can easily manage, and you can edit the profile content at a click. Your tag line is displayed below the photo, along with your user name and country. The quality of members’ photos is not bad, and most profiles have one. However, the profile content is superficial and short.

It is worth noting that for this review we registered a limited profile with no photo to test and browse the site, and weeks later there was no problem with logging on. On the plus side this means it is easy to join, but it raises the question of security, and there is no way to guarantee whether members are genuine. That said, the FAQ page covers the procedure for reporting members for bad behavior, using a reporting member red “stop button”. Guidelines state that if a member has several complaints made against them, they will be banned. It goes on to clarify that whilst allegations are taken very seriously, their system will detect false reports motivated by “revenge and jealousy” and they do not enter into disputes between members. They are not responsible for members being conned by financial scams, and they ban all members who send money to other members, because they believe this encourages scammers. I should imagine that this arises when a man who is not in Asia hooks up with an Asian girl, and sends her the money to fly over and meet him. Using an interesting choice of phrase, DateInAsia.com says, “Do not come whining to us if you do anything as stupid as that. However, if someone asks you for money and you do the right thing and do not send any, we would like very much to hear from you.”

OkCupid.com

OkCupid.com

OkCupid.com ReviewsOkCupid, launched in 2004, is one of the most popular free online dating service in the United States. The site uses algorithms to find digital matches for its 7 million users based on their answers to questions about themselves.It creates a unique dating environment by putting heavy emphases on member participation. Matches are identified by your profile and your responses to a series of fun questions generated by other members. Each match question is made up of four parts: the question, the answers you’re willing to accept from your matches, a rating of how important the answer is to you, and an optional explanation of your response. The more questions you answer, the smarter OkCupid gets at recommending matches for you.
Here are some pros and cons about this site.

PROS:

* OkCupid.com is 100% free to join, post a profile, search for, and communicate with other members.

* Provides members with a list of standard questions to help you design a more in-depth profile. If completed accurately and sincerely, this cyber dating audition could help you to secure your choice of casting calls to answer.

* Compatibility questions, many of which are written by other members, are designed to help determine which members you are more likely to be compatible with. In addition to asking you for your personal answers to these questions, it also asks you to identify the response your ideal mate would likely choose and then asks that you rate how significant that specified response from your match would be to you. If you do not like a question a particular question, you can simply skip it and move to the next. An explanation of their matching technologies is available on the FAQ section of the site.

* The site allows you to improve your matches by choosing to answer more questions. You can also improve them by rating those profiles you do view according to looks and personality.

* Members can narrow search results based on a variety of factors and sort them according to their personal preferences.

* The site is equipped so that users can send instant messages to other members as well as email. Both the email and instant message services allow users to set filters so that they are only messaged by other members that meet a certain criteria. If necessary, members can choose to block other specific members from reaching them.

* A variety of personality tests, electronic journals, forums, advice articles, puzzle games, and other humorous content is also available free of charge. Members can even contribute their own matching questions or develop their own tests for others to take.

* If you are particularly interested in someone but aren’t sure how to start the conversation, you can send a “woo” to let him/her know that you are interested. Of you can save his/her profile and choose to allow that person to know that they were saved to your list.

* As you view each profile, you have the option of rating them based on looks and personality, keeping notes on them, hiding them, flagging them as inappropriate, comparing them against other profiles, or comparing their responses on tests and compatibility questions to your own.

* Members are asked to rate the quality of messages that they receive from other members and can vote on whether or not particular threads make them happy.

* The site automatically keeps a log of your instant message (IM) history, which is a very useful tool that you can use to refer back to previous conversations with other members.

* On your homepage, you can see all of the recent activity from other users in all areas of the site. You can also keep tabs on who has been “stalking” your page, which is a nice feature but keep in mind that your stalking activities are also being monitored.

* Services are provided with both traditional and alternative lifestyles in mind.

CONS:

* It allows members to join even if they are currently married or in a relationship.

* It is a truly free service. Although this is a plus on many levels, it can also work against the quality of the site simply because it cannot weed out those that are less serious about finding someone special and who use the site just to play around. Fortunately, though, all of the useful services that it provides do help to highlight its more quality members since those that aren’t really serious are less likely to invest the time that it would require to paint an accurate picture of him/herself.

eHarmony.com Review
As one of the biggest dating sites in the world, eHarmony claims to be responsible for 542 marriages every day in the United States. Dr. Neil Clark Warren, who’s been practicing as a clinical psychologist and counseling married couples for about 35 years, set up this matchmaking site in the late 90’s and makes it “the first relationship service to use relationship science”.

It Takes Long to Sign Up

The sign up process is very long winded on eHarmony, you may save progress though and return at a later time to complete. Every member must take the time to fill out an in-depth and rigorously defined profile, then every match is screened for compatibility. And to get started on eHarmony, users are asked to complete a comprehensive Relationship Questionnaire. The results are compiled into a detailed Personality Profile, and used to provide personal insight and enable the site to find compatible matches for you. It may take you about half an hour to complete the registration.

eHarmony Compatibility Matching System™

With eHarmony, you don’t browse all the potential matches. The profiles of ladies are selected for you based on your compatibility in the most important areas of life – such as character, intellect, sense of humour, spirituality, values, beliefs, passion, and other key dimensions. That is its famous eHarmony Compatibility Matching System™, the features of eHarmony. Although anyone is allowed to sign up for a free account, its featured services are only open to paid users. If you’re logged in as an unpaid user, the free service for you is to send you some new matches daily. You can not be able to receive messages, view unlimited photos and have the open communication with your favourite lady freely if you’re not a paid user. And access to the eHarmony mobile applications for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, and Android only provide convenience to the paid users.
