China Love Match does exactly what it says on the metaphoric tin: it uses the information you provide to match you with its Chinese members. Its clientele are international, so you’ll find people of Chinese heritage using the site, based in America, Canada, the UK and Australia, as well as many other locations.
The site has several noteworthy features, which we’ll come to soon, but it also offers members affordability, at just over $10 per month (on the yearly contracts). Free membership is quite limited but you can take a good look around to find out whether there are any members who tick your boxes, and whether the features on offer will suit your needs.
Let’s consider a few of those features. There are a lot to choose from, including translation, video and audio options. Most of the time you’ll probably send emails or talk in a live chat, but it’s nice to have these extras, such as video and audio, should you choose to use them. As an online relationship develops, talking face-to-face might be an important step leading towards the in-person meet. You’ll know how the potential-date looks and sounds, which is a great benefit.
There are other features worth considering too, including blog posts and dating advice, which could come in really useful, and also help pass the time if you’re browsing the site.
If your Chinese language proficiency isn’t top notch, there’s an automatic translation service for those tricky words and phrases, plus you can keep a log of chats and messages to help you recall what was said.
Members have uploaded attractive photos, and upgraded members can increase their number of pictures to 15. This isn’t amazing but it’s good enough when you consider that there are also video options if you want to see more. The “who’s hottest” gallery will show you the hottest members for that day, week or month, as voted by users. You can also share your thoughts on a member, by letting them know what you think of their profile, which is a nice little touch and a good way to break the ice.
Registering is pain free, and searching allows you plenty of options to really filter down to the person you’re looking for. Advanced search options are only available to gold members, but you can perform a basic search irrelevant of your status. If you wish to show that you are a genuine dater, then you can choose to have your account verified, and the system can check that your IP address is in the right location. Of course, you may request that another member does the same before you decide to meet up.
The 12 month contract offers the best value for money, although 1 month isn’t ridiculously expensive if you’d rather hold back. The site also allows you to make purchases to send to your potential-dates, including flowers. Through the site you can get a 30% discount on these items, a bunch of roses costing you around $70.
All things considered, ChinaLoveMatch does a good job at putting people in touch. It has plenty of decent features, a lot of members and an abundance of information in the form of eMagazines and blog posts. If you’re looking for a Chinese date, this is certainly one to watch.
