Excellent is the world’s largest Asian singles network, with more than 6 million members from all over the world. There are other dating sites for Asians, but none of them come even close to AsiaFriendFinder in terms of membership size. So it is definitely the biggest Asian dating site, but is it also the best? Read on to find out.

AsiaFriendFinder has an easy 2-step signup process. First you enter your e-mail and chosen username, and then some details about yourself (only the basic ones – you’ll be able to fill in the rest after signing up) and your geographical location for finding members near you. One note about choosing your nickname: most people type in whatever comes to mind first (and that’s usually fine), but don’t forget that your username is the first thing your potential date will see when contacted on Asia Friend Finder, and form an according opinion about you. Just try not to use anything you’ll later be embarrassed about…

With the registration out of the way, you’ll receive your password in your e-mail and will be able to login to AsiaFriendFinder for the first time. You’ll immediately be presented with a screen offering you to buy an upgrade. It’s becoming a norm for dating sites to ask you to upgrade right after joining, but don’t worry – you can look around for as long as you want and decide if it’s worth it or not first. We’ll come back to the upgrades in a minute, but let’s talk about what Asia Friend Finder offers to its members first.

Your member home page contains your own information such as messages and visitor statistics, as well as a random selection of online members and popular photo albums. I’ve found this feature to be fun, and I contacted a cute girl who caught my eye. Besides this random selection, you can of course search for Asian singles by their sex, interest (dating / relationship / marriage / friendship), age, location and so on. As usual, Gold and Silver members can use a lot more search criteria, like education and religion.

One of the more unique AsiaFriendFinder features is a list of members by country. You can browse this list freely and see how many members are registered in every country. At the time I’m writing this AsiaFriendFinder review, there are around 300,000 public listings in the US, for example. China, United States and Canada also have separate listings for their states and provinces. This is a great way to see how many Asia Friendfinder members live near you.

You can enter a lot of information about yourself in your AFF profile, including photos and videos. There also are personality tests which determine your personality traits and then help you find members who would be a good match. This is a really great feature to find like-minded friends and lovers.

AsiaFriendFinder also has several social networking features that I particularly like. Besides the text chat and a desktop instant messenger, there also are blogs (which even free members can write), groups with discussion forums and a site magazine. Overall it’s an active, friendly and sexy community. I admit I have a thing for Asian girls, so this test ride was particularly entertaining for me, even if I spent most of my time on the site chatting with a cute Japanese girl (in Japan) online rather than actually meeting an Asian girl in real life.

The site also has a referral system – you can put your Asia Friend Finder badge on your personal blog or even a forum signature, and earn points when someone clicks it or signs up. Top referrers can even get a Gold upgrade for free. Of course, you also increase your chances that someone will visit your profile and want to hook up.

As it often is with dating sites, Asia Friend Finder limits what you can do as a free member. You can browse around, chat and blog but you can’t view full photos (only thumbnails) of the members, or contact them first (they will have to contact you). As for the upgrade options, they’re in line with what other dating sites usually ask for. You can save some money by paying for 3 months in advance, so if you do upgrade, I strongly recommend you do that, since the savings are pretty impressive. 3 months of Silver membership will cost you just $14 / mo, give you access to most site features and a 24/7 phone support, should you need any help. Gold will increase your chance of meeting that special someone further, with top placement in member searches, and full access to extra-large photos and ICQ, AIM, YM, MSN IDs of the members.

There are some other upgrades not connected to the Silver/Gold package. You can optionally allow free members to contact you at no cost (normally they wouldn’t be able to send you a message) or get your listing highlighted in all e-mails and search results further increasing the visibility of your profile. From my experience, highlighting is definitely worth it, but allowing standard members to contact you…not so much.

One more thing I would like to note in my AsiaFriendfinder review is that they accept PayPal, which is safer and more convenient than paying with a credit card, so it’s definitely a big plus for this site.

Overall AsiaFriendFinder is an impressive, active and modern dating site. If you’re looking to meet sexy Asian girls and guys, this is probably the best singles network online.
