FilipinoFriendFinder.com - Filipino Friend Finder Dating Site Review
FilipinoFriendFinder.com is a premier and leading dating site for Asian men and women singles, which has been online for almost 10 years, and operates internationally. With hundreds of thousands of active site members there is a great opportunity to find hundreds of local and compatible singles to meet for friendship, dating and romance.
The site originally only covered the region of the Philippines, and has only branched out in the last few years, and is therefore still a growing commodity in many countries. However as part of the Friend Finder dating network, FilipinoFriendFinder.com is a well established and popular site in its own right, with advanced security and screening technology to give its members a peace of mind.
The site is well designed and extremely easy to navigate. An extensive help and FAQ section allows users who are not familiar with the function of an online dating site to quickly adapt. However the site helps and supports its users in a way that is not overbearing.
The site has a free membership option, allowing individuals to sign up at no cost, and in turn receive full profile creation and access, some search options and also some of the communication features. FilipinoFriendFinder.com offers it standard (free) users a fantastic range of services to use at no additional cost.
Premium membership can be bought on a monthly, quarterly, bi-annual or annual basis, if you wish to commit to a better membership package. You may choose from silver or gold membership and for the fee will receive great additional bonuses and advanced features, including advanced search options, priority listing and superior network support.
Registration is split into sections, each requiring information in order for your profile to be created. The first section requires basic personal and contact details, including log in details, your location, date of birth, a valid email address and the type of relationship (and gender) you are looking for. The second section is dedicated solely to you, and allows you to describe yourself using a number of topic areas. The last section enables you to pick and choose preferences that are ideal to you when searching for a potential match, whether that is their particular hair color, their level of education, religion or languages they speak for example.
Once your profile has been created, and photos added if you wish, you can then begin searching and browsing immediately. Free members have limited options; however can still narrow down potential matches, by making use of both the quick browse function, and basic searching. Quick browses filter users, rather than select them from specific preferences. If you wish to view only members with photos, then you can do so. Similarly if you want to view members currently online then the quick browse can filter these members for you.
Basic searching is slightly more specific, allowing you to input an age range, location, gender and type of relationship you are seeking. Only members who match these details will then be displayed.
Premium members have a great bonus in using the ‘advanced search’ function, which not only allows you to localize searches in a more accurate way, but lets you choose from dozens of specific parameters, including hair color, body type, languages spoken etc, that meet your idea of the perfect match.
Once a search query has loaded you will then be able to sift through the many matched profiles, in order to choose the compatible from those who don’t seem so compatible.
Free users don’t have much use of communication options, however can hot list members to their list of favorites, and engage in a bit of ice breaking by sending virtual ‘flirts’, which are automatic alerts sent to the other user than someone is interested in them.
Premium members obviously have a more diverse range of communication options, including sending and receiving email messages, instant messaging, video messaging and chatting in both public and private chat rooms.
Other site features include a translation service, member blogs, message and discussion boards, picture rating and voting, an online site magazine, and a member blocking and reporting safety feature.
FilipinoFriendFinder.com is a dating site designed for users who are seeking long term and often long distance love and friendship, and are confident enough about online dating to use it as a great meeting tool. As well as a personal advertisement website, it acts as a community to bring Asian singles together, as well as those who simply appreciate the Asian culture.
