Filipina Match is a membership based dating website that links foreigners to single ladies and men in Philippines. This website boldly sports the Philippines flag as its header, fluttering at the sun and the three stars section, may be indicating that this is a new dawn in the dating genre.
As this is fully membership based, only paid members can communicate on the website. For free users, the website is practically useless. They can only view profiles, but cannot send messages or emails.
To sign up on this website, you have to fill about 25 fields and it takes up a little time.
Once you finish signing up, you will land in your ‘My Account’ page.
Navigation is from the top menu as well as the left hand side menu of this website.
My Account or Welcome page shows you various menu items like your messages, lists, profile options, and search feature.
The Ladies page shows the female members who are online currently. You can click on any member’s picture to view their profile.
Similarly, the Men page shows men’s profiles. As we selected our interest to be only in women, we wonder why the Men page is being displayed in our account.
Lady Luck is a new feature not seen in other dating websites. It shows any female member’s profile at random for you to check out for a match.
The Search page shows ‘Quick Search’ option which is good enough.
From the left side menu, you can choose Power Search to perform an advanced search for members using more filters.
In the search results, when you click on any member’s picture, you can view their profile and add them as a favorite. You can send a smile too, if you have a photo uploaded in your profile.
You cannot email the member without upgrading your membership. There is only one type of plan called VIP membership which costs about $20 per month.
Messages page shows your inbox and outbox. My Favorites page shows the members you added as your favorites.
News and Info page shows the latest news and information on the website.
In the Photo Rating page, you can rate the photos displayed one by one.
Overall, we find this website to be okay, if you are willing to spend on its membership. But it has to be mentioned that the features offered for paid members are quite less compared to other similar websites.
