The short answer to this question is, “YES!” What you need to evaluate are which dating sites you are visiting, how often and what exactly you are looking for. Will you find the love of your life the first day that you visit a site?
No… Probably not. However, with persistence and realistic expectations Asian dating sites can be a great way to meet people. Here are 7 simple tips for finding love on Asian dating sites:
1. Be realistic
Dating online is awesome. You will have a great time browsing profiles and sending e-mails or messages. It’s a ton of fun and an easy way for a shy or busy person to meet new people and get dates.
With that said, the biggest pitfall of online dating for many people is that they simply have too high of expectations too soon.
You probably won’t meet your future spouse in the first week. You will need to be patient and just enjoy yourself for a while. When the right person walks into your life (or pops up on your computer screen) you will know… and so will they. Until then, have fun! Life is short.
2. Be careful
This is extremely important. Although most people on the internet are honest, open and looking for love just like you are you need to keep in mind that some people are predators and you may look like easy prey. Don’t ever give your personal information or any money to anyone you don’t know.
If someone starts talking about marriage, needing money or moving in with you too soon then you need to be very, very careful.
Never meet people for the first time in a private home or dark place. Meet at a coffee house, restaurant or mall with lots of witnesses around. Preferably, meet during the day. You should never assume that the person you have been talking to online has innocent intentions. Trust is something that should be earned through getting to know one another in person.
3. Be yourself
Don’t try and be anything that you are not. Not only is this unfair to the people that you are meeting online, you will be setting yourself up for failure in the long run.
If you lie about your salary, your physical appearance or your goals, you will both feel disappointed and let down when the “real you” is revealed. Even if the real you is great, the lies and deception will have started the relationship off on the wrong foot.
4. Know what you want
You obviously know you would like to date an Asian, so you have narrowed it down some and that is a great start. The next things to think about are what kind of people you want to meet and what you are looking for.
Do you want to date an Asian-American or would you prefer to date internationally? Is it important that they be from a specific country? Do you want a spouse, a friend with benefits or simply to get to know a few people? Is it important to you that they have a college education, a career or that they want children?
The best way to start out your search is to be clear about what is important to you. You can always edit your “wants list” but it’s good to have one when you start out.
Asia covers a HUGE area and the women from the various Asian countries are vastly different. To make your search for love a bit more streamlined you should have a general idea of the countries in which you want to concentrate your search.
Here are the most popular Asian countries for finding a woman for dating or marriage:
Many Men gravitate towards Filipinas for several reasons:
- Filipinas are incredibly sweet and beautiful.
- Of all the Asian countries Philipino culture is the closest to Western culture.
- Most Filipinas speak pretty good English, making communications a breeze.
- Filipinas are more open to dating older guys.
- The Philippines is a very popular spot for Western Expats and retirees.
China is another popular country for men interested in Global dating. There are thousands of incredibly beautiful women who, for various reasons, can’t find a suitable mate at home, so they go looking abroad for love. The main drawback about China is that many of the women you meet will not have great English skills, so you will have to work a bit harder.
Once know mostly a sex tourism destination, Thai dating has become legit and hit the mainstream, mainly because of the push by many of the big international dating sites to establish a foothold in the Thai market. Thai women are easygoing and good natured and many men have found they make great girlfriends and wives.
Most Thai women are Buddhist but they don’t seem to have a problem with their mates having other religious beliefs.
Vietnam is an up an coming Asian dating destination. While you won’t find many Viet girls on the major Global dating websites, if you actually go to Vietnam it is not uncommon to see Vietnamese girls with foreign boyfriends. If you are going to try and date a Vietnamese women you might want to join a Vietnam specific dating site like VietnamCupid.
5. Know what you don’t want
If you know you don’t want a person who is not Asian, then that is your right. Narrow your search even more, as well. Do you care if the person has been divorced, has kids or lives in a different country?
If those are “deal-breakers” then it is best to know that now and not waste your time or anyone else’s. There is nothing wrong with being aware of what things you just can’t handle.
6. Cast a wide net
Try your best to chat with and get to know as many people as possible. Don’t dismiss someone who contacts you too quickly. Give as many people as you can a chance. Who knows? They may be the one for you. While you should have a list of both the things that you want and the things that you won’t tolerate, you should also be willing to re-think or edit your lists as you meet new people.
The more people you meet, talk to and get to know, the better your odds of finding love. Plus, you will build confidence and get a better and clearer idea of what you want in a partner as time goes on.
7. Log on often
Log on at least once a day to check messages, correspond and see if any new members have joined. Devoting a half hour or so a day to the Asian dating site should be enough.
With today’s awesome technology many sites have Smartphone apps so you can log on wherever you are and whenever you have time.
If you are looking for love on an Asian dating site then you are likely to find it. It won’t happen right away and it won’t happen if you don’t put forth effort but it can happen!
