Our Review

DateinAsia is a dating site designed to connect you with Asian people, whether socially or romantically. Open to anyone from all walks of life (even to non-Asians), this site allows you to use all of its features inside without cost. As its tagline claims: "A completely free no-nonsense dating site," DateinAsia is very easy and accessible.

For the most part, the site can only rely on bots to moderate the site. It may be an indication of shorthandedness for running the site 100% free for everyone. In some areas, the bots have helped the site with better monitoring of member activities. However, doing this has caused some undesirable situations for its members. 

These instances include erroneous suspension of accounts and slow profile approval. Others have reported extremely minimal site support, making the dating experience run a little less smooth. In that case, we dug deep and investigated every nook and cranny in the dating site just to see if these allegations are true or not.

Aside from being a dating site, it wants to be known as a social discovery site where you can find a friend and have fun with other people through its features. 

Are these claims true? Is this site worth checking out or is it just like any other online dating platform that scams the money out of you? We took a closer look at DateInAsia for you! Read on below to find out.

  • In order to register you need to fill out a personality test
  • Female members go online more frequently than male members
  • Male members are more active in chat rooms
  • You can see how many members are active at the moment
  • All members should have a working phone number to create an account

Date in Asia has a lot of female Asian members who are not based in Asia. Despite this, the majority of female members still live in Asian countries such as Thailand. In contrast, most of the male members are from foreign countries such as the United States.

Most users are straight singles who are looking for a romantic partner, although there are still several members who belong in the LGBTQ+ community. There is no feature to indicate whether you are straight or gay, so most people explicitly state their sexual orientation inside their profiles, under the "Headline" section. Middle-aged male members dominate the site, while female members lean on the younger age groups 25 to 34.

DateinAsia prides itself on having only real people as members. They keep bots out by implementing a required phone verification step.

Signing Up

DateinAsia Registration Form
  • Setting up the account takes only a few minutes, without the verification process
  • SMS activation code takes a lot of hours to receive
  • Basic info needed includes email address, birthday, and gender
  • Your account is automatically deleted if you don't provide a code after 7 days
  • You can skip uploading your profile picture

Make sure that you have a working phone number with you when you create an account with DateinAsia. After you have entered your basic details such as your desired username, password, email address, birthday, location, and gender, you will be asked for your mobile phone number for a verification process.

SMS Activation

You need to pass the SMS activation step by giving the site your number. After entering your number, the site will message you a six-digit code which you will need to enter before you can use your account.

Before you receive your six-digit code, you will already receive an email asking you to verify your email address. Even if you do this, you will not be able to use your account unless you provide the code.

This added security feature helps make sure that only real people enter the site. However, you will have to wait for at least two hours before you receive a code from their system.

Making Contact

DateinAsia Game
  • You can only use the English language
  • All communication features are free
  • The site uses software to moderate chat rooms
  • Using sexually-charged terms is not allowed
  • Sending messages to other users is free for everyone
  • There is a chatroom

Sending messages and other forms of communication feature is available to everyone for free. However, you cannot send messages unless you upload a profile photo and have it approved. You can still explore the site, read messages, and lurk in chat rooms, but you will not be able to reply.

Chat Rooms

You cannot add new chat room topics as there are only default topics inside. These topics include Travel, Food, "Word Games," and other specialised topics such as "The Lobby" for general topics, "The Insomniacs" for the night owls, "Friendzone" for the singles, and "Selfies" where everyone sends in their selfies or link to YouTube videos for watching together.

DateinAsia has strict rules when it comes to the chat rooms which they call the "Shout" page in-site. The basic rules include staying polite and friendly, but members are never allowed to use profanities, and other offensive and sexually-charged language or topics. It is also explicitly stated in the chat rooms to only use the English language. Despite the high Asian populace, no Asian language is allowed in chat rooms.

Unique feature: "48 hours stats"

DateinAsia will give you an overview of the things you did inside the site within the last 48 hours. It will tell you how many likes you have sent and received, the number of messages you sent and received, and the number of profiles you visited.

On the left side of these numbers are semi-circle bars which indicate if you are hitting your daily targets. The number of targets for each category is set by the site. The site explains that reaching these daily targets will help you find someone.

Profile Quality

DateinAsia Female Profile
  • Photos with children, nudity, seductive poses, lingeries, shirtless photos, fetishism, and violence are prohibited
  • All photos should only show your face
  • Majority of the members take time to fill their profiles with information
  • The site uses a face detector software to maintain compliance
  • The profiles are quite detailed
  • The profile information can be changed later
  • Profile pictures are visible to everyone for free

Profile pages have multiple sections that are easily accessed for editing in the "Me myself" page. 

There is a section for personal information where you can put basic details such as your age, gender, and location. Other sections are customisable such as the "Hashtags" where you can add keywords you associate to your personality such as "cute," "straight," or "basketball."

Face Detector

The site uses software to detect the faces that are in every photo you upload. It will not accept your photo if it does not clearly show your face, there are too many faces on the photo, or if your face is too small to be used in the site. Photo rejection can happen if your face only occupies a small percentage of the total photo, even if your photo is of high resolution and quality.

You must have at least one photo inside your profile. Not having a single photo will restrict you from contacting other people. You can still read and receive new messages, but you will not be able to reply. Likewise, you can still enter chat rooms but you will not be able to join the discussion.

App

DateinAsia Mobile Site
  • There is no app available but you can access its mobile site
  • Features are the same on mobile and desktop
  • There are advertisements on the mobile version

DateinAsia has no app available, but you can access its mobile site. When you open the site using your phone, it will automatically give you a mobile version of the site.

The mobile site has all the exact same buttons and elements as the desktop version, only in a compact, mobile form. Accessing the mobile site is free, along with its functionality. You can send messages, edit your profile, participate in public chat rooms, and play the word game with other people using the mobile version.

Unlike the desktop version, you will find advertisements scattered throughout the site. There is no way to remove these ads since it is a free Asian dating site.

Real Life Review

"My experience with DateinAsia is just okay. I had to wait for hours and hours before I received the activation code, so I had such high hopes that it is such a price to finally get inside. The first few days of using are fine. As expected, I received messages from men immediately. Nothing different happened so far. What I didn't like is that my account got suspended for no reason. I can't remember an instance when I broke their rules. What's worse is that it absolutely has no support. So how am I going to get my account back? I'm not even sure if creating another account is worth it after this." - Karen, 25

Design and Functionality

DateinAsia may look like there's a lot of things going on because of the multiple tabs, but the site is quite easy to navigate.

There are seven tabs, and each tab only contains basic functions: 

  • Me myself - where you can edit your profile;
  • Shout - where you can find the public chat rooms;
  • Likes - to see the likes you sent and received;
  • Pinned - to see the list of people you saved;
  • Visitors - to see the people who viewed your profile;
  • Messages - where all your messages at; and,
  • Search - where you can look for other members of the site

For everything else, such as setting your preferences and account settings, you only need to go to the "More" drop-down menu.

You can customise the colour of the website at the bottom of each page. The colour themes available are anthracite, pink, white, and dark. Anthracite gives you a basic black and white. After creating an account, you will get a pink colour theme by default no matter what your gender is.

Editors Conclusion

Datingscout.com.au Editor Chris Pleines
Many people are delighted to join DateinAsia at first because its features are entirely free. However, some still get disappointed after a while because of this very reason. Site support is extremely minimal and some have even reported that there is none. Issues such as false suspension, deletion, or temporary locking of accounts are reported. These issues may have come from the robot solely monitoring the activities inside the site. It seems like the robots are not very keen on analysing cases resorting to false decisions. Due to these bumps, the site may not be suitable if you want a smoother dating experience. For more options, check out other Dating Sites we have reviewed to know which ones are right up your alley.
