iDateAsia is an online dating site dedicated to helping men from all over the world meet beautiful South East Asian women. Furthermore, As part of the Qpid network users have access to iDateAsia's sister sites where you can spend your credits and correspond with girls from all over the world. This does mean that the features, costs and design of these sites are almost identical and you will find that our reviews for each one will be similar. Rather than being a straightforward mail order bride style site iDateAsia takes the position of being a more traditional online dating site. This means it doesn’t offer help with things like going to meet someone you find online, but does offer a good range of services to help you get chatting in the first place.
Like most online dating sites, iDateAsia will ask you to fill in a profile when you sign up for a membership. It is mentioned that a lot of the women on the site have a good standard of English so it’s worth spending some time on this to make your profile stand out from the rest. As well as being posted online for any female members of the site to see, your profile will be displayed in any number of the iDateAsia in country agency offices. This way even women without easy access to the internet can see it and get in touch with you.
There are plenty of search options on the iDateAsia web site so, if you don’t want to wait for the ladies to come to you, it is easy to find someone that you might be interested in. All of the women you browse through will have been checked by iDateAsia’s staff to make sure they are genuinely looking for a husband and not just out to pull a fast one on an unsuspecting foreigner. It’s also easy to see what level of English they have, which is useful if you are worried about trying to chat to someone who doesn’t quite understand what you are saying.
To get in touch with a lady from the site it’s probably best to start with a cupid note, which doesn’t say very much, but lets her know you are interested. After this you will have to top up your account with some credits to take advantage of the letter forwarding service to start getting to know her. The letter will be translated for free for her if she has any trouble understanding it and you don’t have to pay any extra for this service either. If things are going well you can send a gift to let her know you like her, but you will have to organize a trip to see her yourself. This is something it would be useful to see iDateAsia offering, but doesn’t seem to be on the cards yet. However, we were impressed with iDateAsia's progress in developing a mobile app and a Qpid network PC client. The former allows those with a busy lifestyle to manage their distance love life on the go while the latter permits quick and easy management of your account on all the Qpid sites from the desktop of your PC. These features, along with a pleasing website design, put iDateAsia leaps and bounds ahead of many other products in this category.
iDateAsia is a well run and well designed site that has thousands of South East Asian women signed up; around 350 users online at any one time. Although there are plenty of ladies signed up, iDateAsia is part of a network of dating sites, so you will be competing for their attentions with quite a lot of other people – possibly from various different countries. While this is no bad thing, it’s something to be aware of if you are thinking of signing up. To get an idea of the competition out there we suggest checking out our top ten list of the best mail order bride web sites we have found.
