It is also important to know the specificities of each Asian country. Some apps or websites can be popular in Thailand but completely useless in the Philippines and vice versa. There are 6 different types of online tools that you can use for meeting new girls in Asia: In the following review, I will rank the best dating apps and websites in Asia.
I tried each one in every country during my travels while writing my Asia Nightlife Guides. I will start with the ones that work well everywhere, and then give you a few more that are specific to some countries. In Laos, Myanmar and Cambodia, they are the only one that you can use.
Tinder Tinder is the most widely-used dating app in Asia, especially among educated women and foreign girls. Most of its features are free, but you may want to pay a little extra to get more matches or to change your location. Personally, I'm not a big fan. The problem with Tinder in Asia is easy to understand. It is an app that was originally designed for Americans to hook up: You match, you exchange a few jokes, you set up a date.
It was supposed to be fast and efficient. In Asia, since hooking up and one-night stands are not widely accepted the most common profile sentence is "If you are looking for hook-up swipe left , things move much slower. You need to spend more time chatting and based on my experience, it often leads to nothing.
After a few messages exchanged, she or you will get bored, and then you forget about her because you've got 10 new matches. On average, it has over 2, women online at any time, especially girls living in the Philippines, in Indonesia, in Thailand, and in Vietnam. They are openly looking for a foreign husband or boyfriend. It is pretty much the opposite of Tinder. Many users are still corresponding through emails, sometimes for weeks before deciding to meet.
Girls won't mind if you are still in your home country as long as you have a plan to visit them in Southeast Asia. As with most websites, the registration is free but you will need to pay extra to access better features.
