Making a name for itself within the online Asian dating scene is AsianDating.com. It has a large membership base with members not just from Asia but USA and Europe as well. It offers search facilities, communication features and free membership benefits that are much ahead of its competitors. The site is also offered in several languages and premium members can easily access the translation software to view messages in the language of their preference.
Size and Quality Of Membership Base
AsianDating.com, as the name suggests is a dating site where Asian women can find foreign partners, and men can find Asian brides. Homepage statistics say AsianDating.com has a membership base of 682,000 members worldwide, of which a large number are always online. Judging from the traffic generated, the site definitely seems to be pretty popular. It does however look like that the number of male members on the site is slightly more than the female membership base; which is probably good news for the Asian ladies looking for a foreign partner!
A standard free member can create a pretty great profile with details such as age, gender, nationality, occupation, appearance, religion, relationship type etc, with a brief description of yourself and what you’re looking for. Five photos can also be uploaded by every member. A premium member can add further personality details to their profile such as hobbies and interests.
Search Features and Navigation
AsianDating.com lets you start with a basic search based on age, gender, location or use more advanced search options as a premium member, which lets you search for profiles based on appearance, ethnicity, smoking and drinking habits, interests, religions etc. You can also sort profiles based on newest members, logon activity and photos. Depending on what you’re looking for, you can browse personals for pen pals, romance/dating, friendship and marriage.
AsianDating.com features advanced communication features such as email with a personal inbox, instant messaging as well as voice and video chat. You can also click on ‘Show Interest’ to let someone know you’re interested in them. AsianDating.com has a definite edge over its competitors because it doesn’t charge for any of these services like most dating sites do. Keeping track of communication is also made easy with a personal homepage that lists everything from new email messages to missed IMs.
To appeal to its internationally widespread network of members, AsianDating.com is also available in Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian and Japanese. If you’re a premium member, you can use the message translation services, and translate all messages to any of these languages.
Help and Support
AsianDating.com has a comprehensive Help page, which lists several Frequently Asked Questions. An online help and support system is also available in case the FAQs don’t help, with help categories like Billing, Chat Room, Change Email Address etc, so your help query will be answered by the relevant department I imagine.
The Contact Us page lists postal and office addresses as well as phone numbers for the Head Office in Australia.
