ChinaLoveCupid – formerly ChineseLoveLinks review
ChinaLoveCupid, also known as Chinese Love Links is the largest English language dating site in China, run by the Cupid dating network, the company behind ThaiCupid.com among others. In fact, if you’ve ever used a Cupid dating site before, then you will feel right at home here and know what to expect. The site is primarily aimed at connecting Chinese women with foreign men such as expats in China, exchange students or just visitors.
English language skills are increasing rapidly in China and so are the numbers of Chinese interested in learning about the outside world and making foreign friends. Browsing through profiles on Chinese Love Links, you may be quite surprised at how many Chinese girls have very good English and feel very confident expressing themselves online. That is certainly a contrast to many other Asian countries, where English ability is low. Our guess is that the users of Chinese Love Links generally belong to the growing middle class and above in China, who are in fact very curious and open-minded about the western way of life.
Traditionally, dating in China took on different forms than western dating. Most women were married in their early twenties and if they were not married by their mid to late twenties, then they were considered ‘unmarriable’. This, of course, doesn’t go well together with getting an education or even working in a modern professional workplace. The result of this is that there are actually tons of single educated and working Chinese women in the larger cities in China, who are deemed not to be marriage material simply because they are above 25 years old.
Looking through profiles on Chinese Love Links, there seem to be many such educated and attractive women. It is certainly not difficult to understand why they would seek love with foreigners, who may have much more similar and modern values when it comes to dating.
Functionality and Easy of Use
Chinese Love Links, like all Cupid sites, is easy to use and has a ton of features. Signing up can be done pretty quickly without filling out a lot of information, but if you want to, then there are plenty of options to flesh out your profile. Unlike other of the Asian Cupid sites, it seems most members here actually do make an effort to complete their profiles, so that is probably a good idea to do yourself.
The site has all the usual functionality. You can send a ‘like’, send messages, add to favorites, chat and search using a wide array of criteria. There is also an automatic translation service, though we can’t say how good it is. You won’t be missing any feature and everything is well thought out and designed to be easy to use.
Price and Memberships
The price of a membership ranges depending on how long in advance you pay. One month premium membership, which is necessary to use most functions, costs about $30, while you can get as low as $10 a month if you pay one year in advance. There are no recurring fees here and you will never be charged for more than you ordered.
After reviewing tons of dating websites we’ve found that ChinaLoveCupid/ChineseLoveLinks is the best internationally oriented Chinese dating site – with lots of members from all over China and really good functionality at a reasonable price. It’s the best option to meet Chinese women online if you don’t actually read and write Chinese.
