Whether you're looking for a date from your own culture or you are another race and would like to meet Asian singles, Asian Internet dating services are a good place to start your search.
As with most online dating agencies Asian dating sites provide a variety of services and generally offer free profiling and photo upload. However, you must pay to contact other members, and use anonymous emailing or instant messaging.
One thing to be aware of on international dating sites is the language barrier. Your love match may not speak the same language as you and you may need to communicate in basic English. It's difficult to get a sense of who your date is in this way and the process can be frustrating if you're looking for long-term commitment and meaningful conversation. However sometimes its worth persisting until you feel confident to meet.
Many Asian ladies in the UK like to date Western men who have a more relaxed work ethic and different social concepts. Asian women are generally attractive to UK men and society's attitudes have relaxed to the extent where mixed race dating is no longer cause for comment. Needless to say there are plenty of European women, particularly in younger age groups and at educational institutions who are drawn to the more focused and career oriented Asian male.
If you think you can handle the cross-cultural problems, the potential language barrier and the subtle glances of those who are still surprised to see an Asian and European arm in arm, you may be inclined to sign up to an Asian dating site. Here are a few to get you started (prices are given in dollars as sites are international):
AsianEuro.com aims to bring people from Asian and Western backgrounds together. The service has Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Indonesian and Malaysian editions and costs between $12 and $30 a month depending on the level of membership you choose.
AsianRomance.com is another premiere site for Asian dating and offers free dating tips and advice, a members' forum, free chat lounge, and Asian news. The price of the dating service depends on your membership level and can be up to $30 a month.
YourAsianConnection.com is one of the best sites, with strong online communities in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and New York. The site offers free trial membership and full subscription services from $15 a month.
