Our experience of Dating Chinese (as it seems was the case with many others), was similar to this sad sandwich tale. You’re walking down the street. You see a sign: free sandwiches. Fantastic! You approach, happy, elated, ready to eat. The sandwich vendor stops you: “excuse me, first you need to fill in this form.” Okay, so you fill it in. “Okay now you need to wait here whilst I get the manager.” You wait. You wait. It starts to rain. You wait, thinking that the free sandwich will be worth it. You sneeze. The manager finally arrives. “Yes, okay, in you come. Here’s your sandwich.” The manager hands you the sandwich, which – instead of cheese – is full of cardboard.
Dating Chinese promises free dating, it has blogs, pictures, even videos and events. But sadly it seems to be full of fake profiles and scams, aiming to get you to register elsewhere. What a shame as the site had so much potential.
To be fair to Dating Chinese, you might very well have a different experience. You might meet genuine people who are looking for genuine dates, but this didn’t seem too likely. It didn’t bode well that when we went to the site’s “FAQ” (in name only, because it helped very little with questions) there were just 3 answers to 3 questions, followed by a long stream of complaints from members. Well, good on them for allowing members to post up their complaints freely, but none of those members appeared to have been satisfied and all of them seemed to have been ignored. The main complaints included their inboxes being overloaded with scam emails, and a lack of any real members who wanted to date. Oh dear.
But let’s assume for a moment that you are lucky. You register (by the way, you have to wait for someone to process your registration, which could take any amount of time – that was the ‘manager’ analogy in our sandwich saga), perform a search and find some lovely members to contact. What then? Well you can send emails to communicate, as well as checking out their pictures and videos.
If you’re extra keen then you can look at the “events” section of the website, although it’s completely empty so won’t be of much use. The most interesting thing to do is visit the “pictures” section, which is a gallery of members’ images.
So, unfortunately, we cannot say much in the way to entice you into trying Dating Chinese. Whilst it looks good on the surface, underneath it seems to be nothing more than smoke and mirrors. If you’re still desperate to try it out then take a look, maybe you’ll get lucky.
