AsiaMe is an exclusive dating service designed to help members connect with Asian singles. Many people are attracted to Asian singles from countries like Vietnam and Thailand. However, there are language and culture differences that prevent users from having meaningful conversations and romantic interactions.
Our review looks at how this dating service breaks barriers to bring people together, how much it costs as well as how convenient the app and website are to use.
AsiaMe review: How it works
AsiaMe provides a full set of features to help its members interact and communicate no matter where they live in the world. During our AsiaMe review, we found that this dating service is actually not focused on local dating at all.
This dating site is primarily aimed at heterosexual men interested in online and long-distance romance with Asian women. Its chatting, messaging, voice and video call services enable users speaking different languages to communicate across borders and time zones.
There is also a gift feature that lets you buy thoughtful presents, such as flowers and greeting cards, for your admirers. This dating service is ideal if you’re looking for online romance exclusively.
If you don’t mind spending money on sending messages (beyond the initial free one) or optional gifts, you can have a premium online dating experience without leaving your house. This is a great dating site if you are not necessarily interested in going for a date but prefer to just chat and interact online.
AsiaMe review: Pros and cons
These are the pros and cons we found while trying out the site as part of our review.
- You can chat with members even if you don’t speak their language.
- You can meet people from China, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, Korea, Japan, and Singapore.
- You can send a free message before paying for further interactions.
- Automatic profile creation tools make writing about yourself less awkward.
- Optional gift suggestions are conveniently integrated.
- Pay as you go pricing model means you only pay for what you use.
- AsiaMe is not designed with local dates in mind.

- You cannot communicate with members outside of AsiaMe because external contact information is automatically blocked in the chat for safety reasons.
AsiaMe review: How much does it cost?
AsiaMe does not have monthly memberships like other dating apps and sites. Members purchase credits in order to chat and interact online. During our AsiaMe review, we looked at what the main features cost.
|Credit options||Total cost||Cost per credit|
|2 credits (one-time offer)||NZ$5.87||NZ$2.93|
When you buy any of the above AsiaMe credit options, you also get a free premium service promotion. You can use this free bonus to send 5 additional first emails to members, chat for 20 minutes and unlock photos sent to you.
|EMF message||1 credit to read or send a message|
|Chat||0.5 credits per 5 minutes|
|CamShare||0.6 credits per minute|
|Call service||1 credit per minute|
Since members have to use credits for most interactions on the dating site, it’s worth seeing how much regular messaging, emailing, or video calls actually cost.
|Feature||Cost on 16 credit pack||Cost on 100 credit pack|
|5 EMF letters||NZ$35.31||NZ$23.47|
|Text Chat (30 mins)||NZ$8.82||NZ$5.87|
|CamShare (5 mins)||NZ$26.47||NZ$17.61|
|Phone call (5 mins)||NZ$44.13||NZ$20.52|
The costs outlined above for common interactions, such as sending letters or short video chats, include the premium service promotion you get when purchasing credits.
AsiaMe is more expensive than other dating services. The reason is that other dating services don’t have to provide 2-way translations to overcome language barriers and follow the strict member verification requirements for Asian members (see the FAQ below for more details).
Overall, we found that pricing reflects the complexity of providing a premium dating experience no matter what the language and geographical differences between members may be.
