  • AsianRomance.com Asian romance says: "Our mission is to provide a high-class, safe and clean forum on the internet for eligible singles." The Asian Online Dating sites reviewed here tend to fall into one of two types. One is the kind that seems to be geared towards women (and in some cases men) in developing countries like the Philippines and southeast Asia, looking for men in the West to marry and improve their financial prospects. The other type of "Asian" dating site is quite different, and caters for people of all ethnic backgrounds throughout Asia, living in any country who would like to meet other working professional people like them, or people from other cultures as well. Asian Romance is one of the latter, and you can browse by ethnicity, location, religion, or sexual orientation to find the kind of people you would like to contact. Navigation is easy, with everything you need at the top of each page in an uncluttered lay out. The colors are not girly pink like Date In Asia or Asian Euro, so its appearance should attract all kinds, not just mail-order brides. Search facilities are good, and there are lots of ways to get in touch and get to know each other, including forums, the secret admirer feature, love tokens and live events. Loyalty points called "passion points" are an incentive in the form of a "digital compliment system and referral bonus program" and according to AsianRomance.com is the first of its kind.
  • AsianSingleConnection.com The main features on AsianSingleConnection.com are organized under three tabs entitled Connect, Search and My Profile. As a free member you must complete your profile before exploring the site, adding information about your interests, education and personality etc. This encourages detailed profiles with lots of information to help you pick your dates. The style is fun and informal, with quirky ways to describe yourself; for example, you can choose 'washboard' or 'I should maybe lose a few' to describe your body type. There are a fair amount of advertising banners, which can be annoying, but the subscription rates are highly competitive, starting at $9.99 for one month, and dropping to $6.99 per month for 6 months. As a free standard member you can find out who's viewed your profile, review your matches by mail and test the water with the Smile feature. When it comes to searching, members have a lot of choices. You can create lists of members to connect with using the Friends and Favorites option, and a unique feature called Think You'd Click, which is a cute touch. You click "yes" on a suggested member, and the website will secretly find out if they like you. If you click "maybe" they will ask you again later, and if you click "no" the rejected party will be none the wiser. Don't you wish real life worked like that? Help files are easily accessible and thorough, and there is a search facility for Frequently Asked Questions. Despite all these wonderful features, the site does seem a little quiet on the message boards, but you never know who you might meet if you give it a try.
