The main reason why DateinAsia.com was created was to connect foreigners with local Asian single people. The website is most prominent with Filipinos and Thais, yet it has active members originating from other countries in Asia including Japan, China and Singapore.

Free Sign Up = Scam Troubles

DateinAsia review

One of the main features of Date in Asia is the fact that it is completely free. However, aside from lots of Google ads you'll have to cope with the usual free-to-use dating website drawbacks: scams, spam and other fraudulent acts due to lack of good security, limited customer support, and a general hands-off approach by the owners. Simply doing a quick search, apart from all the YouTube videos of girls, the search will reveal quite a lot of negative comments and scams. I would probably think this is so because it is a FREE dating site. You would be lucky to find a diamond in the rough at this site. Most of the comments seem to revolve around scammers and gold diggers.

Search Functions and Other Features

Let's talk a bit about the website. On the site, you can view other members and their corresponding data including gender, age, country, education, occupation, religion, marital status, willingness to have children, willingness to relocate, smoke or drink. This is nothing new and most dating sites provide these parameters as standard search features. It does however help narrow down what you are searching for to hopefully find the Asian girl you are looking for.

A search facility feature also helps you locate more specific options in less than a minute. You will simply have to input their gender, age range, country and city, and availability of photos. After pressing the search button, potential partners will be displayed. The site interface is quite nice and easy-to-use even for newbies.

DateinAsia.com's interface also features a list that lets users know who is interested to mingle with you. The list can also be used to add your favorites and contact numbers. The list also displays members who were recently online and if there are any members who annoy you, you can even use the list to block them temporarily or permanently.

As far as free sites go, it's an alright option (and a lot better than, say, Find Love Asia). However, it's still plagued by inactive profiles, plenty of oversight, and practically no support. Worthwhile maybe if you're already in Manila on a bored Tuesday evening, but if you value your time or have some higher expectations, there are better alternatives.

Important:

Now, some would call this a drawback to any dating site and I definitely think so, as upon registration you are *required* to verify your account with your mobile. If not, you will be unable to use the site. If you look at the bottom of the image, it mentions that if you do not want to activate using your mobile, you can go ahead and 'DELETE YOUR ACCOUNT', otherwise, it will automatically delete your account after 7 days. I'm not sure about you, but for me, giving my personal phone number to a dating site doesn't seem too safe.

Recommendation

There's always a downside to these free dating sites, but it seems like DateinAsia.com has been struck hard by a lot of Asian women looking to take advantage of its more well-off members. People do question free dating sites and I've written a post about "To Pay Or Not" - its advantages and disadvantages, but if you end up finding this site, I would say the better option would be to check out Asia FriendFinder (read the review). It wouldn't only be the better option, but an option which has a better percentage to land you an Asian partner without the pesky scams. You could also try any of the Asian dating sites that cater to specific markets - Korea, Vietnam, Philippines, and Thailand, among others.

  • Figured since it's free I wouldn't have anything to loose. It's not a bad site, but there's way too few members in my area. However, there's a lot of inactive profiles and members who never reply. I guess a lot of people create an account and just never come back. Wasted a few weeks on the site without ever managing to meet anyone. At least it's free.

  • Definitely a tad too conservative for my taste. Not exactly a fan of the whole 'no sex before marriage thing'. And that seems to be an attitude way too common on that site. Moving on.

  • Looking for an asian partner as well, but don't think this is the site I will be using.
