And you don't really care what kind of personality she has. If you understand that, this site might be your thing. It is part of the Australian company Cupid Media, an empire of niche dating sites.While not a scam, Asian definitely has a sneaky, bait-and-switch quality that makes us uncomfortable.Know from the start that you will accomplish nothing with the free membership other than wasting your time building a profile.At every turn, you will be prompted to sign up for the pay site (see "Cost," below).It's all driven by images and raw data, intent on making sure that the woman meets basic criteria of looks and life circumstances (religion, children, etc.). On OKCupid, it's a brutal world: you live or die by the strength of your narrative.On Asian Dating.com, you live or die according to your pictures.If you're on Asian Dating.com, you might be a guy with Yellow Fever. You're looking for a maybe young, maybe hot, but most definitely Asian, woman. This site is not about dating the Asian woman down the street; it's about overseas marriage and relocation.
Beware, though: a vast majority of Asian women are experts at making themselves up; this is part of the culture and isn't necessarily a sham perpetrated just to snag an American husband. It's not all lipstick and hair, though; men who are partial to Asian women need to beware of their own rose-colored glasses. However, we went into our review objectively and found that it is largely a legitimate site and does seek to connect two like-minded pools of people. If it stripped out its icky, duplicitous aspects--mainly the bogus interest messages and e-mails, and the practice of leading members into paywall deadends--it might even become a legitimate, respected method for two groups of people with similar interests to connect.
This site is not the Asian equivalent of those Russian matchmaking sites where every woman is so impossibly hot and professionally photographed that she cannot be real.
These are real woman, looking for marriage and a ticket to a better life. Indonesia, Thailand, China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan are also represented.
We give Cupid Media credit for doing more than just giving a perfunctory grunt of assent to the fact that scammers are probably operating on their sites.
They have set up a separate site, Online Dating Safety Tips, which serves as the go-to scam-and-spam Help section for all of their sites.
