Winston,
Whenever I see a pinay whose profile says that she lives in the US or Canada, I simply avoid them as they are more than likely very americanized and corrupted. No need for that. The FOBs are great however but they won't be on DIA imo. Word of mouth and having a connect in the local Pinay community does wonders!

Still not had any luck on DIA. I guess since I'm now in Asia I won't appeal to the many scammers on there.

For Chinese Ladies CLL is all you need really. The ladies sign up faster than I can go to meet them.

Glad I stumbled upon this thread. It's given me a couple of new sites to check out (been on the Cupids & LoveLinks), some general cultural traits, and things watch out for.

Signed up for DIA about a week ago. While I am usually skeptical of these sites anyways, I have a decent responses in a short amount of time. The ones who look flakey, I just ignore. But currently in good exchanges with a lovely gal from Indonesia, one from Kuala Lumpur, and 2 Filipanas.

Not had much luck on DiA with the Chinese girls. And I'm conversing with so many ladies now that it's worth paying for Chinese Love Links due to the excellent system for handling all those emails and interests!

I'd recommend finding your wife in the Philippines, but I'm biased :)

Had a reply from a cute girl on DiA, but she turned out to be advertising insurance. The DiA owners are too busy counting their money to keep their site clean.

It's been a mixed bag so far.

I had a decent amount of messages sent to me and sent a good amount out myself. It just take times sorting all the BS from the possible legit.
I am still chatting with the lady from Malaysia (mostly on FB and Yahoo). The Indonesian girl turned out to be a lot younger than she stated and I am simply not looking for a 22 year old (though we still chat on FB). One of Filipans seemed to be trying to get cash from me, so that ended. The other is frustrating because I can only get brief answers and she isn't revealing much. Makes me skeptic. And I've added a girl from Thailand in the mix.

Basically, it's far more responses than I've gotten from the local gals on the OKC and POF sites. The big difference is that I cant just make a date and meet them on any given day since I'm half way across the globe. I do plan on going some where later this year. Just have to decide.


And Joe, nice blog. It's a good read.

On a different note... does any one have in generalization about Malay women and Indo women (I seem to get a lot of replies from Indonesia).

I've read the ones about Filipans, Chinese, and Thais but there's not much abou the women from the Malaysian and Indonesian culture on this thread.

Good point! I think it's because Malay and Indonesian women are much more conservative (as a result of the Muslim religion) than other Asian women. They don't date foreigners as much as women in other Asian countries.

Did some reading of expat and local forums in Singapore and Malaysia.

Some people find Indo housemaids/nannies even more submissive than Filipinas. Less educated, no English though.

I think as Ladislav has written elsewhere there are going to be more similarities than differences.

Also if a girl's family is Moslem they tend to be even more submissive than Christian-raised girls, IMO a good thing. Marrying the girl and living locally might be a problem though. People do cohabit, though technically illegal to do with a Moslem girl in Indonesia and Malaysia.

So after about three months on the DIA site and weeding out so many fakes, ladyboys, and scammers; I have found a few decent woman (most Filipina & a couple of Indo). We communicate a couple times a week on other forums.

But with one gal from Magalang (outside Angeles City), we started chatting more earlie in August. Now it has progressed to exchanging IM's a few hours each night and a couple of hours in the mornings and even a long video chats a few times a week. And I think we are digging each other. I dont know where it is all gonna lead yet, but I am starting believe she is very special gal. She works hard (3 jobs), doesnt care that I am not religious, and never lead on anything to give me a red flag. Plus we have a lot in common & constantly learning about each other's cultures.
She is definitely making me want to go to Philipines later this year instead of next year like I planned. And I think, she could be a very special lady.

I've bumped into a few Indo girls online but I have never been to the country before. As far as I know, they are good ladies. Asking a man for money that they have never met before is uncommon.

Date in Asia is not that great a dating site but it is free.

I've gotten plenty of messages from Filipinas. About 3 messages from Chinese women. I've noticed a lot of expired women are still picky on there, though. Not a ton, but when you see a 50 year old single mom laying out even a modest list of what they must have, it makes you wonder.

Please remember not ALL foreigners (to Philippines) are from America.

So, NO idea what is POF !
