"The Best for Filipino Dating"

Summary

The Good: Active niche userbase; users messaging a lot; genuine profiles and commited members
The Bad: The approval of pictures is a bit too strict (pics can get rejected for no apparent reason)
The Bottom Line: The Philippines is a good country for Asian dating, since common Christian values and a good English level make communication easy between natives and foreigners. FilipinoCupid is a solid site full of normal, nice Filipino girls looking for love. We recommend it.

Detailed Review

A Site for Foreign Men to Meet Filipinas

FilipinoCupid is a website specializing in Filipino Dating. It is owned by CupidMedia, a company specializing in ethnic dating. The company behind the site has a lot of experience in this market, and we expected a good experience. We were not disappointed.

Genuine profiles

The membership on FilipinoCupid is mostly Western men and Filipino women hoping to meet each other.

Like all sites we have reviewed from CupidMedia, FilipinoCupid is very legit. The company does an excellent job at filtering members, and all profiles were of genuine Filipino girls, with normal jobs, looking for a nice foreign guy for fun or a relationship.

Most girls on FilipinoCupid do not seem to be too interested in money. Like we said before, most are normal girls looking for a decent guy and a better life. Some are looking to relocate to a foreign country, some wish to find someone who will move to the Philippines (or already lives there). Many are open to either, if they can find the right person.

(Note from BestOfDatingSites: this reviewer , in charge of reviewing all the Asian dating sites, has 15 years of Asia experience)

Big Thumbnails for Easy Browsing

The registering process is simple and take about 5 minutes. The matching is basic, and the best way to use the site is probably to just look around the profiles by yourself. The search can help you by limiting the location and age groups, and from there, browse away.

The search shows you big thumbnails pictures; just click on those you like to read the profiles and message the persons you like. Most members have several pics, which lets you take a good look at them first.

After you get your subscription, you can instantly message all members, including "standard" ones. You also get access to the instant chat, with thousand of users usually available in the chat rooms at any given time of the day.

Active Users + Common Values + Good English Level

On FilipinoCupid as on most Asian Dating sites, women are much more active than on average site, and you'll receive several messages and winks a day without even trying; possibly more if you invest time in making a great profile. But we recommend you to look for ladies you like on your own, don't just wait to be contacted!

The responses are also more frequent, as Filipino women tend to be very polite and proper. Most Filipinas are Christians, which also provide common ground and values with Western men. Another positive side is that the level of English in the Philippines is high, much higher than in Thailand for example. Therefore communication is very easy with most FilipinoCupid users; most of them speak excellent English.

Our Recommendation

FilipinoCupid is a great site for Asian Dating, featuring serious girls who are easy to communicate with. The site has our recommendation.
