AsianDate is a popular dating website for foreigners who would like to date Asian women. This website seems to be dominated with gorgeous girls and women from China. Vietnamese and Philippine women make their presence felt too.
This dating website is unique in the sense that it is driven by credits instead of monthly membership. This system has you burning your pockets for every single feature.
You can chat, email, camshare, send gifts and do much more by paying the corresponding cost for each service.
The signing up process is quite simple which has you fill in just your name, gender, email and password. Or you can do a simple fast login with your Facebook account.
You will be sent a validation email. Once you confirm the email address you will be shown your account page.
There are just three menu items, Search, My Account and Log Out, in the top navigation bar of the desktop version of AsianDate.
'My account' page is landing page, where you can see all you need at a glance in the account.
Interestingly, even before we validated our email, we stated receiving instant messages from many beautiful women making us wonder if this website is a scam.
Some of these messages are pretty crude. This surely points to something fishy because no woman would send such messages to a person who she did not even see in a picture. Even though the profile itself was blank, we received such emails and messages.
The 'Search' page gives you various options to search for women based on age, country, interests, Member ID etc.
When you click on your picture on the top right corner of the top navigation bar, you can see the menu for your account settings. To view your profile, click on the Profile button.
Complete your profile by filling in all the details to get relevant matches. We feel that this step is not even necessary because we kept receiving hundreds of messages even before any information is entered.
You can upload multiple photos, fill details about your appearance, reason for joining this website, what you want in your partner, and also if you are interested in travelling to Asia.
There is an option to opt for calls from ladies you correspond with too.
You can click on View as Ladies see my profile button to view your profile as how it is shown to a lady.
On the left hand side of the page, you can see quite an extensive menu covering topics like your Mailing System, Ladies, Services, Customer Service and My Account.
The 'Mailing System' holds your inbox, sent mail, deleted mail and option to compose new mails. Credits will be deducted even to read incoming mail.
Next is the 'Ladies' section where you have options to check your contacts, watched videos, Asian Ladies in USA, search for members, and check who is online.
'My Contact List' shows all your contacts with options to camshare, chat, send gifts to them.
Previously watched videos can be checked in the 'Watched Videos' section.
'Asian Ladies in USA' lists all the Asian women living in the USA.
When you click on 'Online Ladies' option, it shows the list of all the ladies online at that time.
In the Services section, you have options to call the lady, send her flowers and presents, live chat, cam share with her, and send virtual gifts too.
Of course, to avail any service, you will need credits. To purchase them click on the 'Subscribe' button under My Account section in the left-hand side menu options.
For $2.99, you get 20 credits. Take our word for it, you can use them up pretty quickly.
When you click on a woman's name, her profile is displayed with her full information and pictures. It also shows options to email her, call her, send virtual gifts, flowers and presents to her.
You can send a email to the woman at 10 credits for the letter.
You can call the lady by following the instructions shown when you click the 'Call Me' option. This also is charged from your credits.
The credits charged per call is also shown to you.
If you wish to dazzle your lady with flowers and presents, you can hit the 'Flowers and Presents' button in the Services menu and have a blast.
Special presents like gold pendant, sets of various items, baskets, single flowers and bouquets are the options available at different rates shown in the shopping cart.
When you click on the 'Live Chat' option, it tells you how it works and also shows the women ready to chat now.
When you click on any woman's name to chat, a window for the chat pops up showing that each minute is billed at different rates.
When you click on the 'CamShare' option, it tells you how it works and also shows the women online for CamShare.
A pop up window with the video of the woman pops up when you click on the camshare button against her name. You can cam share for about 20 minutes for $2.99.
You can even check out the comparison between live chat and cam share.
Virtual gifts can also be sent across to the lady you are interested in by hitting the Send Virtual Gift button under her name or by using the 'Virtual Gifts' menu option in Services.
There are lots of options for the gifts for you to choose from. Though the gift is virtual, you will charged for real at 15 credits per gift and it will be displayed on her profile for 7 days.
If you have any questions, you can click on the 'Contact Us' button on the top right corner of the screen inside the header.
Extensive help is available. You can even email your queries to the AsianDate team and get it resolved by Customer Service.
In the My Account section, you can edit your account information by hitting the 'My Account Information' button.
In the 'My Settings and Password' page you can update your settings and change your password.
Purchase credits option can be checked for automating purchases of 1000, 160 or 20 credits. We do not recommend this option as this obviously will keep digging a hole in your wallet even without your noticing. At least you have the option to pay-as-you-go when using live chat and cam share.
This website has its own AsianDate app for both Apple devices and android devices. This way you can date on the go!
The good part about AsianDate is that its signing up process is very simple. It has the fast sign up option with Facebook credentials.
It is a highly visual website with user-friendly interface.
The bad part is that you cannot be too sure if you are talking to a real person on not.
Many of these women look like models, making people wonder if this website is a scam. This cannot be confirmed unless you check it out for yourself.
You can burn through your pocket within a few chats/cam shares, emails and messages.
Another issue is that the pages take quite some time to load completely because the pages are usually filled with lots of pictures.
Overall, we find this website to be in the move-cautiously zone. We feel that this is a costly hobby to spend your time on when you do not want to be lonely.
If you have lots of money to spend on dating and would like to try out and see if these beautiful women are even real, then this is definitely a place to go.
