Here are some of the reasons they will give you:

  • “I really want to meet you but I don’t have enough money to travel to see you.”
  • “My family member or me require urgent surgery or treatment for a serious illness”
  • “My family member or me has been a victim of a serious or fatal accident and you are the only person who can help me.”

Common examples of scams include requests for large sums of money to make payments towards plane tickets, legal fees, visa and immigration charges, medical expenses, marriage annulment fees etc.

How do I avoid Asian online dating scams?

First of all, you need to choose a reliable and established Asian online dating websites, with that being said, you still need some protective measures in case you are being blinded by love:

  • If you feel you must assist someone to purchase a plane ticket, always buy the ticket yourself on behalf of the visitor and make sure the ticket can be refunded in case you need to cancel it
  • If you must make any payments,  only do so after you have verified the invoice is genuine and pay directly to the organization
  • If you do send money to someone, be suspicious of someone who requests more money as soon as they receive the initial amount, report them to the administrator of the Asian dating service

Some people in developing countries like the Philippines often request small amount of money to pay for expenses such as internet access or mobile phone costs to communicate with you.  Avoid sending any money to someone you have not met in person, under any circumstances.

Asian Dating Tips How To Write The Perfect Introduction Part 2

In the last post we talk about useful tips to help you write your first email message that will make a lasting great impression. Here are more tips to help you score your first online dating sucess.

Online Asian Dating Tips #1: Be Original

Do not try to make generic comments such as “you’re hot” with no information about yourself  and no explanation as to why you think she’s hot. You’ll need something more original to attract her interest. Show your personality in your writing.  If you have a great sense of humor try to blend it in your email to her.  It’s a sure way to impress someone.


Online Asian Dating Tips #2: Write Coherently

Don’t abbreviate too many words in your email message. An abbreviation here and there is okay, but if a person needs a cryptographer to figure out what you’re trying to say, your email is probably destined for the delete button. For example “I would luv 2 chat wif u” is fine, but if the entire email reads like a text message composed by your 13-year-old niece, you’re just going to annoy people!

Online Asian Dating Tips #3: Sell Yourself

It does not mean to put yourself on the discount rack.  Sell yourself by writing without sounding egotistical.  If you’re a successful executive with a fabulous lifestyle, write with confidence but don’t blow your horn about how many cars you own. Remember you want to engage people with your message, not make them roll their eyes.

Online Asian Dating Tips #4: Attach Pictures

People like to see other people’s pictures. Let them see who they are corresponding with unless you are a werewolf. Even if you are uncomfortable showing your face, attach some photos of your best features, like your torso, legs, or even just your eyes. But please keep your private anatomy private as it is not the time to ‘expose yourself’ unnecessarily. It is best to attach action shots or photos of you doing something.

Online Asian Dating Tips #5: Ask Questions

End your email with a question. Closing an email abruptly with something like “Write back if you’re interested” is so lame and not very engaging. Asking questions will prompt people to respond. If a woman’s profile says she likes traveling to exotic beaches and you share the common interest, write something like “I love beaches, too! What is your favorite beach?” and you have hit the jackpot.

Asian Dating Tips How To Write The Perfect Introduction Part 1

In the world of Asian online dating, the first email that you want to sent to the lady you’ve got your eyes on can make or break your chances.  Here are some useful tips to help you write your first email message that will make a lasting great impression.

Online Asian Dating Tips #1

Don’t just skim the members’ profiles looking for hot photos. Make a little effort by reading their profiles thoroughly before making contact.  If you read their profiles carefully, you will most likely to know what she’s looking for and if you’re a good fit, saving yourself a lot of time and rejection in the process.


Online Asian Dating Tips #2

When you write a message, include a line that indicates you have actually read her profile. People especially women appreciate your small little gestures and effort. She will most likely to respond to your advances and reciprocate.

Online Asian Dating Tips #3

Don’t send a form letter as a first message. If you can’t take the time to personalize a simple introductory message, why should she take the time to respond?

Online Asian Dating Tips #4

Be honest! The internet dating landscape is a great place to fantasize about the person you want to be, but if you’re talking to someone you plan on meeting face to face, honesty really is the best policy.

Keep the first email short and sweet. Tell her more about yourself and let her know you’re interested – but get straight to the point.

Do not use this opportunity to vent your frustration by talking about your ex or your troubles at work etc. No one wants to be your listening ear from the first contact.

Most people won’t even finish reading the first few lines of your message, let alone respond to it. Do not beat around the bush and write too much information for a first email.

Difference between Thai Girls and Filipino Girls

What’s the difference between a Thai girl and a Filipino girl? There are so many misleading information floating around especially certain articles whereby even the authors are confused and mixed up these Asian women. For example plastering Japanese and Taiwanese girls’ photos and representing them as Filipino or Thai girls.

Many can’t tell the difference from their online dating profile photo but with more time, you are able to set them apart. This can be helpful for you to filter off fake online dating profile photos immediately.


The most obvious difference is that Filipinos speak English fluently and tagalog as their native language. Thai is the national and official language of Thailand and the mother tongue of the Thai people, only minority of  Thai women can speak English. However Thai girls in Bangkok and Phuket are fluent in English as they depend on tourists for their trade.

Filipino Women Physical looks

Some Filipino women may look Chinese, Spanish (Spanish colonization) or Caucasian (British rule and American) due to colorful history of the Philippines. On the other hand some Filipina girls are dark and tanned as they have roots tracing back to indigenous people in the Philippines. Below are some pictures of Malayo-Polynesian Filipina women descent.


Ethnic Filipina women Malayo-Polynesian

Most Filipina women are part of Malay/Malayo-Polynesian speaking people. You can find them in rural areas Negros Occidenta,Zamboanga,Misamis Oriental and outlying islands Cebu,Palawan

Filipina Chinese women

Non-Malay Polynesian ethnic groups such as Chinese, Europeans and American form a minority in the Philippine population.The intermarriage of Chinese immigrant workers with native women (called indios) in the 16th century exceed more than those Spanish mixed with Malayo-Polynesian population.


Filipino women with mixed heritage

The opening of the Suez Canal in the 18th century give rise to foreign trade and soon Europeans such as the British, Germans, and French settled in the islands to do business. Mixed-race individuals are known as Filipino mestizos. Example of popular Filipino woman model Misa Campo who has mixed heritage (Dutch and Filipina)

Top 5 Mistakes Writing an Online Dating Profile

Here’s the scenario: you saw a few popular online dating services and you signed up for free membership. Next, you went online but it turns out there are no response or worse you get losers, cheaters. It is pretty frustrating when you thought that hooking up online is supposed to be easy and convenient.

No, it’s not your fault that you are not getting any attention, the blame lies with your online dating profile. Here’s the five mistakes we commonly made when writing our online dating profile.

Mistake #1: Carbon Copy

For Girls:
Every girl likes to describe herself as “kind hearted, sweet, fun,open-minded, sincere, optimistic, friendly” but there are thousands of other single girls in Asian online dating websites that say the same thing about themselves. This type of profile do not stand out from the crowd and you soon be buried deep under the tsunami of popular members’ profile. click here to see example of popular Filipina girls member online profile

For guys:
Boring generic descriptions about your likes and hobbies. Who doesn’t enjoy travel, movies and make new friends?

The Attention grabbing secret:

The best online dating profiles tell an original story about the member . So instead of writing that you’re adventurous, write something about the trip to the beach or the hike with your buddies or best friends.

You will be a major turn on when you describe yourself as passionate. No! not in bed but the activities or hobbies that get you hook.  This approach make you seem a lot more interesting and it also gives online dating members an easy icebreaker.

Mistake #2: You Don’t Advertise Yourself

You might be reluctant to self promote because you worry it will make you seem cocky or self-conceited. Do not leave out listing your strengths such as  good at cooking or speak four languages etc. Prospective dating members like to date people who are winners not losers.

Mistake #3: Ugly Profile Photos

For Girls:

  • Do not make a mistake of submitting photos with your best friend. You will confuse the man checking you out. Which one is the real you? The ugly one or the hotter one?
  • Do not include guys in profile photo.  Some of the Asian girls are so lazy that they upload snapshots with their brothers, ex-boyfriend. This is a huge turn off for men.
  • Take a good self portrait, preferably in bed as the background of your profile picture. Wait and see your inbox shoot through the roof.
  • Photos that shows off your body is an absolute must… if you have it, flaunt it
  • If you are still puzzled over how to take good self portrait, go to the popular members photo section like the one in Filipino FriendFinder and see how they take their photos which are being voted by fellow members.

Mistake #4: Desperate Headlines

Do not write “looking for a soulmate” it screams “I’m desperately looking to marry ASAP!” Your profile headline is like a classified ad, screaming and waving for attention to those that are browsing and searching members profiles. But do not let your headline devalue

Mistake #5: Revealing secrets

Do not reveal anything in your profile that you wouldn’t say on a first date.  It is normal that your profile contains a detailed self description but do not confess unnecessarily.

With a few tweaks and patience, your inbox will soon be stuffed with messages from guys or girls dying to hear from you. Good luck!
