AsianDating.com is powered by Cupid Media, which operates a number of database-driven dating sites focused on the interracial niche markets. AsianDating.com allows singles across Asia and Europe to connect by way of a fun and safe environment. They offer a multi-lingual interface with a user-friendly design, easy navigation and range of interactive features to provide you with a fun and safe online dating experience - connecting you with a large database of singles.
AsianDating.com offers a tiered level of service, starting with your basic free membership. As a free member you can send and receive e-mail from other members, so it is possible to use the site without paying a subscription fee. However, two free members will not be able to chat, and if you want to get involved in instant messaging then you’ll need to upgrade your memebership.
If you decide to become a paying member, the higher your subscription, the better your chance of being noticed according to the way profiles are ranked (as a free member you come lower down the list). There is an icebreaker or "send an interest" feature, which works quite well at dipping your toe into the dating pool before diving in.
Free membership, however, only allows contact with paying members, but once you become one you can contact all members, paying or not, which really puts the power into your hands. The experience is organized so that the service improves the more money you spend.
Platinum members have access to all the bells and whistles in the form of video profiles, video mail, and a message translation service.
Platinum members have access to all the bells and whistles in the form of video profiles, video mail, and a message translation service. Moreover, the more you spend, the more space you have on your profile to appeal to other members, and you can also include contact details to communicate outside of the site.
There is a good profile management facility allowing you to change the written content, photos, e-mail alert settings, match preferences, cancellation and reactivation. Because of the carefully tiered membership system, free members are constantly adding to the database and keep the site busy and active. There are now over 2 million members, which gives you plenty of choice.
Other sites often don't keep their free members because they cannot read or send e-mails until they upgrade to a paid subscription. AsianDating.com, on the other hand, caters for all budgets by offering an excellent introductory (Standard) package to entice free members. Unlike some other sites, AsianDating.com allows free (Standard) members to try out many features before deciding whether to upgrade to a paid (Gold or Platinum) subscription.
Unlike some Asian dating sites, the level of English is to a high professional standard, so things are laid out clearly and simply. The translation service is an impressive and its popularity speaks for itself.
Unlike some other sites, AsianDating.com allows free (Standard) members to try out many features before deciding whether to upgrade to a paid (Gold or Platinum) subscription.
The profiles themselves are comprehensive and include a wide range of basic and more advanced information, allowing you to talk about yourself if you choose. This is all helpful when it comes to performing searches because it means you can be pretty specific about the sorts of personality and physical traits you’re interested in, helping you to find exactly who you’re looking for.
Meanwhile, chatting is fun and can be achieved via email message, instant messenger or video. This last option is particularly fun if you want to get up close and personal as it allows you to see and hear the other person.
The help files cover queries on logging in, profile and match management, photo management, e-mail, the "interest" function, languages, chat room, instant messaging, searching and browsing, membership options and cost, technical issues, and safety/security. Whilst pricing information used to be locked away it is now readily available simply by clicking “upgrade now”, and you can find out which features will open up to you depending on the package you take out.
The help files are comprehensive and thorough, complete with FAQs, and if need be you can contact CupidMedia directly by telephone at their Australian headquarters in Queensland.
With several pricing options available and a very generous free membership option, we feel that you have the time and features to explore the site much more fully than you’ll find with other sites. Membership numbers are high and you’ll even be able to talk to non-paying users. There are plenty of features to keep you busy, too.
Over all, we felt that Asian Dating is an affordable site which offers more than most sites, providing a safe and fun place to meet potential dates from across the globe.
