Cebuanas is a popular dating website with lovely Filipina women members mainly from Cebu, a beautiful island in Philippines. As is the case with other similar websites, men tend to be in the higher age bracket on this site too.
It shows that it has close to 9 lakh members on the website which we find to be not really true. There are always only a few hundreds of users online at any given time.
This website offers features like webcam chat, video uploads, sending flowers, private chat and of course messaging for paid members. As usual standard membership does not make the cut. You cannot even read a message if you do not upgrade your membership.
The sign up process is supposed to take less than 30 seconds. But it definitely takes more time because you must fill your interests, all basic details like ethnicity, personal habits, interests, description about you and the partner and such fields before entering the website.
Once you fill all the information, you will land in the home page that shows your profile quick view with an advanced search option on the left hand side of the screen.
Your profile also gets a rating which will improve once your email, profile information and photos are validated.
You can choose to send flowers and chocolates to the woman you are interested in. The packages start from about $35 and can cost up to $100. Do you really want to spend so much on flowers on a woman you did not even meet?
This website says it is a way to test if the girl is real or not. So, are they saying that they have mainly scammers as their members? And a man should pay up to know if the girl he is interested in is real? This is unbelievably the case with this website.
What’s more, the flower delivery service is non-refundable, but they can deliver it to any other girl if you like and, that’s a big and… if the girl is real!
There is something called first class members on the website separated into different age groups. These members are women who are verified in live webcam chat by the Cebuanas staff. We wonder if that means the rest of the profiles belong to scammers!
To their credit, the Cebuanas staff acknowledges fake profiles as a serious problem and warn the users. The first message we received from the website is a scam warning.
Coming to the membership details, as mentioned earlier, even to read a message that is from the website itself, you need to upgrade your membership.
And they say that even their support staff consists of single women looking for dates.
The Premium membership starts at $24.95 per month and goes up to $99.95 per year. First class membership is $249.95 per year. And the fee is non-refundable.
The search option is pretty simple on this website. One can search for members with filters like age, country, education, height, weight, marital status, religion etc.
Overall, we find Cebuanas to be a simple website with limited features. If you are very cautious and can spend serious money for dating, this website is for you.
