Does Dating online in SE Asia really work?


Recommended Posts

We all like to have a partner, and during lockdowns it is perhaps even more important to share the isolation.


So best route for many is online dating.




The dating service industry has exhibited massive growth in terms of sales and has been evolving continuously over the past couple of decades.


The global online dating services market was valued at $6,400.0 million in 2017 and is projected to reach $9,202 million by 2025.


This is attributable to rise in number of singles around the globe, especially in North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.


Surge in internet penetration especially during the Covid 19 pandemic around the globe has resulted in significant growth of the online dating services market.


However, do many people actually find their soul mate, by cruising these dating sites?


Best Sites


Experts say the Best Asian Dating Sites you can get for free are:



AsianMachMate is a dating website where people can meet single Asian women and men. ...also

AsianDating.com. ...

Thaifriendly.com. ...

AsianDate.com. ...

DateInAsia.com. ...

EastMeetEast.com. ...

TrulyAsian.com. ...



Currently the Top 5 Dating Apps by views In Asia during 2021 were…


Tantan. This China-based dating app operates like Tinder and has attracted a significantly high proportion of users in China, especially in Shanghai and Beijing. ...

Paktor. ...

Truly Madly. ...

Singapore Lovelinks. ...



Although most sites state they are Free, if you want to contact anyone, they normally only let paid up members have access.


So, they now have hooked you in!


At the end of the day if you are a man looking for a girlfriend, you will naturally find that many females listed are not really looking for a long-term relationship.




Therefore, these sites maybe great to meet someone gorgeous for a short holiday romance, but you will certainly need to make sure your ATM card is topped up.


Genuine partners


To find a genuine long-term partner is a lot harder, but you just have to keep looking.




A lot of women looking for older partners, often want you to also look after their extended families too.


Also, although they may say they understand English, best to chat via video first, otherwise communication will be tough.


It is hard to find a good-looking partner, who you think will take care for you rather than treat you as her private bank account.


However, you never know what is around the corner, so keep searching.

I met my Filipina wife through DateInAsia... 10 years ago. It has worked out pretty well so far.


Do bear in mind though...and this is where videochat is really essential.  Works both ways of course. 😉

....plenty of success stories out there.  Along with horror stories, and probably more of, simply because people are more apt to complain than compliment any situation.

Maybe you have some tips to share?

... as with everything, rent before you buy, and only after test riding, living with.  Talking/texting is free, keep it that way and nothing loss.
