Dates with beautiful Chinese women or handsome Chinese men: that’s what China Love Date hope to offer their members. You can search through a range of attractive members, communicating by spending coins to watch videos, send letters and more, in the hope that love will strike. The website says that its members are looking for serious relationships, so this isn’t necessarily a place for you to visit if you’re looking for a quick roll in the proverbial hay, but if you are interested in meeting people for long term relations, then ChinaLoveDate might be for you.
Joining is free but, if you want to communicate with members, then you’re going to have to buy some credits. The benefit of this kind of system is that you only spend money on actual communications, so you won’t lose a dime if you are just looking around for the right person. The more credits you buy, the cheaper each credit becomes, and subsequently the cheaper each communication becomes.
You can send letters, make video calls, arrange rendezvous, watch videos and send gifts, all through spending your credits. Different features will cost you different numbers of credits, so please check the website for a more comprehensive breakdown of services before beginning.
The communication features available through China Love Date are functional and fun, and we were particularly impressed by the Rendezvous Week option, which allows you to arrange a trip to China. Once there, you can take a week to meet women from the website, helping you to get to know each other and perhaps even to decide to start a relationship together. This is supported by a professional team of employees who can speak fluent English and Chinese languages. Translation services are also available if you wish to send letters in English, which is useful if you plan on speaking with members who do not read or write in English very well.
Profile pages are highly attractive, with a great deal of attention having been paid to the members’ photos. These are professionally shot, with colourful backgrounds which help to give a clear impression of how members appear. Information on the profile is sometimes sparse, though, so if you wish to really get to know someone, then you’ll have to arrange to speak to them. This is easily done by clicking on one of several buttons on their profile page.
The site also shows you whether or not they can speak English, and allows you to increase the size of their images to see them up-close. Some members have even uploaded video diaries, showing you their local area or how they look, along with some exciting soundtracks.
ChinaLoveDate.com feels very concise and controlled. You aren’t really free to do as you please as there are no forums or public areas to express yourself. Contacting members often seems to go through the admin team, which act as gatekeepers between you and whomever you’re trying to talk with. Still, the flip side of this is that you get a professional service and the staff are always on hand to help with any issues, including translation.
The site isn’t cheap, and you could easily spend quite a bit of money using it, however, if you’re looking for a serious relationship with a member from China then it’s probably worth the time and money to make sure things are done properly. We were particularly pleased to see tips on Chinese dating culture, as well as resources to help you through the process, showing a dedication to the dating cause.
