#1 match.ca

Match.ca is a global dating website with a fairly large Asian dating section, which is why we put it on the top of the list. It doesn’t matter if you’re straight, gay or lesbian, you will find plenty of Asians with the same sexual orientation as yours.

According to AskMen, the website is very effective and managed to get a review score of 9.3/10. The quality of members is the strongest suit of this website. Users are feeling safe because they don’t encounter fake profiles or weird offers from other people.

The main con is that the monthly costs are higher than average. Moreover, your profile is not approved instantly, but this is how they manage to keep the quality of members up. The best feature is their comprehensive matching algorithm that incorporates user behavior and feedback.

You won’t be bored on Match.ca, that’s for sure, because new features are added constantly.

#2 asiandating.com

AsianDating is free to join, and ranks second on our list. This offers you access to a database of 2.5 million people, both men and women. The signup process is straightforward and you can simplify it even more by joining with Facebook. You have to provide you first name, age, gender and a valid email address.

One disadvantage that people in Vancouver need to be aware of is that the signup form doesn’t ask you whether you are gay or straight, which makes us believe there aren’t any gay members on AsianDating. However, the website is part of an entire network that has a dedicated site for gay people: GayCupid.com.

So, how does it work? You create a profile, upload a photo and describe the qualities you seek in an ideal partner. After that, you will browse through photos of other members based on your location and preferences.

Once you found someone that interests you, it’s time to initiate a conversation and let the fun part begin. Happy dating!

#3 filipinocupid.com

It’s free to join this 3.5-million-member community. FilipinoCupid is the largest Filipino dating website and it covers Canada too, so Vancouver residents are welcome to sign up.

Once you complete the registration process that takes less than a couple of minutes, you proceed to creating a profile. The point is to make it as personalized as possible, to add accurate photos of yourself and to describe how you’d like the ideal partner to be.

After that, you are ready to browse through other members’ profiles based on criteria such as proximity, personal interests and lifestyle preferences. AskMen gave FilipinoCupid.com a total rating of 8.2 mentioning that the site performs mediocrely on almost all the assessed parameters.

It is great that you get a live audio/video chat feature and that you are allowed to communicate with others without upgrading to a paid membership. However, some people complain about the lack of mobile apps and the inability to control who sees your profile

#4 thaifriendly.com

The website has a dating pool of more than 1.2 million members, making it our fourth pick for people living in Vancouver. There is no matching algorithm so you are free to browse through all of the available profiles. First, you have to sign up and create your own profile.

Once you find someone you like, you are welcome to send him/her a message for free. This is a huge difference from what you usually find on dating websites. There is a paid membership option of course if you want to get exclusive features.

ThaiFriendly recognized the need of people to browse through profiles on a mobile phone, so they developed an app available for Android and iOS. Based on almost 2000 user reviews, the Android version is rated with 4.1/5 stars. Both versions are free to download but the premium app costs $20 for iOS.

The app gives you unlimited messaging options, advanced search filters, the ability to see recent profile visitors and to appear above free users in the search.

#5 idateasia.com

You can log in on this website with your Facebook account to save time, or you can fill in their sign up form. You have to provide your real full name, gender birthday, nationality, email and to choose a password.

One of the biggest disadvantages of iDateAsia is their lack of support for the gay community. You have only 2 options to choose from: man seeking women or woman seeking men.

The website has a lot of interesting features to check out, such as Live Chat, a video show, a love call and virtual gifts. They also developed an Android app and a mobile optimized site version for those who prefer browsing on a mobile device like a smartphone or tablet.

The app has 4/5 stars based on the reviews of 731 users. What’s unique about the app is that you gain access to the entire Qpid Network which iDateAsia is a part of. This means you pick from a significantly larger dating pool.
