The so-called ‘Yellow fever’ is far from over. More and more singles, especially men, look for niche platforms where they meet their Asain dream girls, and more and more Asian girls are ready to respond to this ‘request’. But how Asian segment of the dating market works? Let’s find out.
The number of Asian dating sites is constantly growing, but this trend definitely has side effects, making it harder for a user to make the right choice. We analyzed the market for you, and here are the top 5 best platforms to join in 2023.
Which Asian dating site is completely free?
It’s pretty hard to find a niche Asian dating site that’d be also completely free for a user. The thing is such platforms have pretty strict policies regarding members, in particular, Asian applicants, and provide many special services—optional payments will hardly cover these expenses.
Most such websites, however, find a compromise, providing both free and premium services without making a user pay for registration. Moreover, most websites on our list have bonuses and complimentary credits that allow users to test all the paid features without spending money and then decide whether they want to stay or not. There are free alternatives like Tinder and other global platforms, but it usually takes more time for a foreign user to find a partner in a place where most people are looking only for local matches.
What is dating like in Asia?
- The number of singles has increased by around 30% in South Korea, China, Singapore, and other South Asia countries in the past decade
- The average marriage age over the past decade has increased to 27.5 years for women and to 30.1 years for men in most Asian countries, as did the number of marriages and divorces
- Singapore is the fourth non-native English-speaking country globally and the most proficient country in Asia, followed by the Philippines, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and India.
Asian dating relies heavily on traditions, ultimately leading to marriage. For instance, in the Philippines, courting is very much alive, and men often try to woo ladies through elaborate romantic gestures, including poetry.
In India, casual sexual relationships are a rarity. Instead, most people date to start a family. As a result, most couples marry within the first year of going out if they manage to last that long. Besides, in many Indian regions, arranged marriages are still a norm, so young Asian singles don’t have much say in who they date or marry.
Singapore stands out from other Asian countries. It enjoys a constant stream of business travelers, ex-pats, and tourists, which promotes casual dating. At the same time, serious relationships are challenging, as few young adults can afford to live alone in the most expensive country in Asia.
