The advancement in technology has improved our lives in all aspects. For instance, it is easier to find a partner now than before. Traditionally, to find a girl, whether a citizen or a foreigner, you had to invest your time and money. It would take you months before finding a perfect date.
Now, finding an ideal partner is as easy as 1, 2, 3. All you need is to find yourself a trustworthy dating site and find a partner of your dreams. Luckily, there are hundreds of dating sites in the Philippines.
However, these choices can get overwhelming, especially if you are new to online dating. That’s why I created this piece to help you choose the best Filipino dating site. Straightaway, let’s get into it.
How to find reliable and serious Filipino dating sites?
Before I discuss the top three Filipino dating sites, I would like to show you the criteria you can use to choose a perfect dating site. Always consider the following factors:
What is the #1 Filipino dating site?
Tinder, the most popular dating site globally and is available in the Philippines, and you can use it in major cities to find partners.
However, if you are looking to find a foreign wife in the Philippines, FilipinoCupid.com is the number one dating site. Here, you will meet over 5.5 million other singles looking for love and happiness. The site is for serious relationships, and you are likely to find love here more than in any other dating site in the country.
It is full of Filipino women, and it is one of the most popular niche dating sites in the country. Most female members are between 25 and 44 years old. What’s more, it is relatively affordable, and it is easy to find matches.
What is the safest Filipino dating site?
Technically, no dating site can guarantee 100% safety for its users. Even the most established dating sites in the world are associated with scammers and fake profiles. However, that doesn’t mean you cannot find safe dating sites in the Philippines.
Among the safest options, FilipinoCupid.com ranks the highest. All your details are kept private, and they can only be seen by persons you decide to share with. The platform even goes ahead to ask its users to fill out the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act (IMBRA) to protect its users even more.
Furthermore, you can always report fake profiles and scammers for investigations. Their lines are always open, and they don’t condone catfishing. If you are matched with someone who is not respectful, you can report abuse through FilipinoCupid’s online request form. That said, you can feel safe getting your date from FilipinoCupid.com.
Which Filipino dating site actually works?
As much as there are many reliable dating sites in the Philippines, there are also some full of scammers. That’s why it is essential to choose a trustworthy site to find actual Asian women.
Among the many options, FilipinoCupid.com, Loveme.com, and AsiaMe.com are the best for persons looking to find foreign wives or husbands in the Philippines. The sites are full of Asian women and men from the rest of the world, including the United States.
How to identify and avoid online dating scams on Filipino dating platforms?
This is to say that online scams are real, and you should be very careful who you trust in these dating sites. Below are a few tips to help you spot and avoid scammers:
That said, you can always do a little detective work to see if the person is real. It is interesting to know that you can copy-paste an image on Google image and see if it is used elsewhere online. If it is and not by the same person, there is a high probability that it’s a scammer. Report the account for investigation and stop communicating.
Top 3 Filipino online dating sites
Unlike in many countries where online dating is only popular and possible in big cities, Filipinos are open to online dating regardless of the location. You can find a suitable partner, whether in big cities like Manila or small ones like Angeles City.
There are many reputable sites in the country, and citizens are open to dating foreigners. This is probably because of the US naval presence in the country. That said, here are my top three dating sites in the Philippines.
FilipinoCupid.com is one of the leading dating sites in the Philippines, with over 5.5 million users. The company site is a product made by the tech giant Cupid Media, which has also developed other successful dating sites, including AsianDating and PinkCupid.
Typically, FilipinoCupid.com aims to help foreigners find love in the Philippines.
FilipinoCupid provides a platform for singles to find other single people with their likes. In most cases, members of this platform are looking for serious relationships.
The site is relatively easy to use. The registration will not even take you more than 5 minutes. All you need is to provide necessary personal data, including your name, gender, age, email, and password.
You can alternatively join using Facebook. You can add a profile picture while creating the account or later. There is a chatroom on the platform, but only premium members can send messages.
FilipinoCupid provides a few free services, including basic matching, profile creation, and sending interests. However, to send and receive messages plus other perks, you will need to go premium. The monthly cost is $34.99 for a gold membership and $39.99 for a platinum membership.
If you plan to try interracial relationships, Loveme.com is one of the best sites to find a partner. The site connects single people from all over the world. According to the site owners, they have paired many couples since 1995.
Currently, the site is dominated by middle-aged and older people, but you can still find younger people.
Like other dating platforms, you will find single people looking for partners. The good thing about the dating services is that they can also organize meet-ups, including accommodation, when you plan to meet someone in the Philippines who is on the dating site.
From the homepage, you can tell the platform focuses on bringing people from all over the world together. The registration process is relatively easy, but it is slightly different for ladies. Typically, ladies must add two photos on the platform before opening an account. Nonetheless, filling in the primary personal questions takes only a few minutes.
The dating platform costs $29.95 a month. However, ladies can still send a message for free even if they are not premium members.
AsiaMe.com is a perfect platform for a male looking for an Asian female partner. The site was developed after a merger of two popular dating sites, iDateAsia and Qpid.
It has been around since 1998, and many couples have found love on the platform.
The platform is devoted to helping men worldwide find foreign partners, more specifically from Asia. For that reason, men from all over the world can register, but only ladies of Asian descent can register. The site is for people looking for serious relationships. It’s not a perfect site for a person looking for hook-ups.
The site is easy to use, and it comes with various communication tools, including video, text, and calls. Registration is easy, and it won’t take you long.
The site uses a unique payment method that involves purchasing credits. Typically, two credits cost $3.99, while 16 credits cost $96.
Putting it together
Online dating is fun, and you can always find a perfect dating site that will help you find an ideal foreign wife. However, you should always be careful. There are many scammers online, and you may end up losing a lot of money if you are not careful.
Therefore, be sure to choose trustworthy platforms for your dates. I recommend Loveme.com, AsiaME.com, and FilipinoCupid.com; you will find your dream partner from any of the three. Good luck.
