We all like to save money online. Unfortunately free dating sites can be more trouble than they're worth. Here's why free Chinese sites for online dating can be a false economy, and why you're better off spending money on a subscription Chinese or Asian dating site.

Essential Facts About Free Chinese Dating Sites

Whether you're looking for Chinese brides or an Asian wife from any other country, you'll quickly get overwhelmed with the vast choice of Asian personals websites available online.

To be perfectly honest, most of the smaller free dating sites aren't worth bothering with. They either have too few members, or the facilities or basic, or they're a haven for scammers. Anyone looking for a partner from overseas is very vulnerable to dating scammers. Many of the scammers operate out of West Africa. They steal photos from Facebook, Flickr or elsewhere then pretend to be beautiful Asian, Russian, Chinese or other ladies. Actually sometimes they pretend to be men in order to scam women. So free dating sites are hazardous. The African scammers love free dating sites because:

  • They can sign up as many times as they want without spending a cent.
  • The free dating sites don't usually have any basic anti-fraud protection, so the sites don't even do basic checking like seeing which country the member's computer is based in.
  • Many free dating sites have tens of thousands of members, so it's easy to hide in amongst the crowd of personals.
  • Free dating sites don't usually employ human moderators to hunt them down. And if they are found out they can simply open up a new free profile in a different name.
  • Free dating sites are popular with newbie online daters, and newbies are always easier to scam than seasoned professionals.

Sometimes dating scams are also carried out by Chinese women themselves. Online scams by Chinese women are very rare, certainly when compared to the numerous Filipina dating scams that go on. Because Chinese women find it so hard to learn English, they can find it difficult to carry out scams online. Obviously their Filipina sisters have the upper hand here. There's also more of a cultural stigma against scamming people, although if a Chinese woman needs money then she's going to earn it by any means at her disposal. Chinese ladies tend not to know too much about the Western world, so to be honest their methods of scamming are very basic. You think they'd be easy to spot, but love blinds us so men (and women) continue to lose vast amounts of money through very simple frauds.

One other problem with free Chinese dating sites is that sometimes sites appear to be free, but they are in fact pay sites. Sadly even the largest dating sites make it deliberately difficult to find out how much they cost. They want to get you to join as a free member first, then they hope you'll find someone you want to contact and then take out a subscription.

If you do want to use a free Chinese dating site then be wary of members who you might meet on there but who then suggest another site to visit. This is hazardous because:

  • Scammers love to move you to a different site in order to evade detection by the original site on which you met.
  • Chinese ladies represented by marriage agencies frequently suggest this because their agency or translator won't make any money on a free dating site. If the lady suggests this, then your options are either to choose another lady, or to continue with the current lady. If you do persist then make absolutely sure she is a genuine lady and not a fake profile. You can do this by insisting on a webcam session with her.

Finally, some Chinese dating sites are free, but they have a credit based system where you pay every time you send or receive a letter from a Chinese lady. Sites that use this method include Chinese Women Date. Be extremely wary of this kind of site. While many men have found their dream Chinese bride on such sites, it can be an expensive way of communicating with an Asian lady. I personally spent $400 on one site, and for that I only got to communicate with less than a dozen different ladies. I was also lucky because I could read some Chinese characters so I felt comfortable talking to my lady via an Instant Messaging service. On top of that my favorite lady was one of the most computer literate women on the site, so she was much more comfortable communicating directly with me rather than through her translator.

Invariably, you're usually better off using a flat rate site that allows you to send or receive as many messages as you wish. Incidentally, once you've been in this game for a while then you'll start to notice that many of the Chinese ladies have profiles on several dating sites. If you sign up to Cherry Blossoms, Chnlove and Chinese Cupid you'll definitely see women who have profiles on all three of the Chinese dating sites.

Chinese Dating Personals Photos

One reason to use a free Chinese dating site is so that you can sample the dating profiles and see if a Chinese partner is for you. Most personals sites allow the members to upload a few photos of themselves. When you use the site you can then search for ladies and see pics of all the female members that meet your search parameters.

You don't actually need to use a free dating site in order to do this. Pretty much all Chinese dating sites like Chinese Cupid and Chnlove allow you to sign up completely free and browse the Chinese personals on the site. The good thing about using a subscription site rather than a free site is that the photos are more likely to be genuine. The best Chinese dating sites like Chinese Cupid actually verify the photos uploaded by members against their photographic identification so they can't submit photos of models, actresses or movie stars!

One thing to be wary of is that a lot of Asian ladies get professional studio photos taken for their dating profiles. These photos are often airbrushed to make the ladies look like goddesses. Skin lightening is very common - pale skin is seen as much more attractive in much of Asia. Of course they're usually beautiful in real life as well, but just be aware that they might not look like their studio shots. Chinese women in particular are huge fans of photo studios. Photographic studios are a common sight in every town and city across China.

Free Asian Dating Sites

If you don't know whether you want to find a Chinese wife or a bride from another Asian country then it might be useful to try an Asian dating site rather than a Chinese specific dating site. The biggest free Asian dating site is DateInAsia. It has female members from a wide range of Asian countries. Most of the members are however from China, Chinese and the Philippines. There are also a few women from Japan and Korea, but they prefer to use the subscription sites.

So free Asian dating sites are worth a look if you're still in the early stages of deciding that you want an Asian wife. They can be useful if you want to see what's available, and which country you want to focus your search on. Once you're serious about the idea of an Asian wife then it's invariably better to use a trusted subscription based online dating site like Chinese Cupid, or one of the Asian dating sites popular with Chinese ladies such as Cherry Blossoms.
