Surprisingly, the site works smoothly and usually does what you want it to do (except when hitting paywalls).It also has a bad habit of timing out and logging the member out after a short time.And you don't really care what kind of personality she has. If you understand that, this site might be your thing. It is part of the Australian company Cupid Media, an empire of niche dating sites.While not a scam, Asian definitely has a sneaky, bait-and-switch quality that makes us uncomfortable.As mentioned above, they lead you far into an activity, so that you will feel cheated if you back out of the activity.It also tries to stir up male members' interests by having impossibly hot women show interest in them.
Interestingly enough, only about half of those users had actually opened our profile.Between the two ends of the spectrum are many other payment plans.We found that Platinum is a mostly valueless upgrade from Gold (both are paid plans).What we hated the worst were sneaky things like allowing free members to open up the messaging service, type a message, and hit "Send"--at which point you hit another paywall telling you that you must upgrade service to do this.
Obviously, the system knows that you intend to message and that an upgrade is needed. Because, like some other dating sites, Asian Dating.com, likes to play psychological tricks.Keep in mind that English is a second language for a large number of women on Asian Dating.com, so depending on the brilliance of a 600 word profile would be unfair to them.Add in the fact that many of them have minimal education (but not all).We consider this a design flaw on Cupid Media's part; they should require that profiles be opened before an e-mail can be sent.
