As someone who has been living in The Philippines for years and gone through the dating ring around the rosy I’ve tried many dating sites. Some are better than others but one stands out. That’s why I’ve compiled this list of dating that either I have personally used or I know people who found their wives on the site. The most important criteria for a site are:
- Environment-does the website create an environment for people who are seriously looking for a wife or just casual dating/prostitution
- Security-does the site take steps to eliminate known scammers and prostitutes
- Cost-everyone’s budget is different but that being said if you can’t afford a membership fee for a website then you probably have no business looking for a Filipina in the first place
The Best Filipino Dating Sites
I did a survey of my Youtube channel viewers and they overwhelmingly rated Christian Filipina as the best site to find a wife in The Philippines.
This is not a site for guys who are just looking for sex!
Founded in 2009 by a married American and Filipina couple, Christian Filipina is an award-winning dating website that provides a friendly, conservative, and honest environment for people with compatible Christian values to meet.
This international Christian dating site is the number one place to meet Filipino men and women with sincere Christian principles, and members come from a variety of English-speaking countries with the majority being from the Philippines, Asia, United States, Canada, and Australia.
Christian Filipina offers members affordable prices, privileges, and the comfort of being in a community of fellow believers. Their powerful matching options ensure you can easily find someone compatible with you. An internal mail messaging system allows you to email other members anonymously, which means your real email address or additional personal information remains confidential.
You can send “winks” to express interest or save a profile for revisiting later on. You are even free to ban people if you like. There are also a plethora of audio, video, and text chat options that are available to free and platinum users and are entirely within the safety of the site.
What puts Christian Filipina up at the top of the list is its extensive, industry-leading security protocols. Each new member’s application and profile is thoroughly reviewed by the Christian Filipina team. There is automatic monitoring of any suspicious or inappropriate messages, and they have certified PCI-compliant credit card processing. This dating site eliminates as many dating scam problems to avoid drawing away from a safe and comfortable dating experience.
They say you can sign up for free and send messages but those ‘messages’ are merely winks or form letters. The women are also far less likely to respond to a free member anyway. If you want any meaningful communication then you’ll have to pay.
With ten years of experience, Christian Filipina boasts a healthy membership. According to their surveys, more than 500,000 men and women joined since 2009 and about 4,500 new members join each week.
They have different membership levels starting with free membership, silver, platinum, and unlimited. There are also discounts available for military, missionaries, pastors and students. Christian Filipina offers an international dating experience alongside prioritizing your faith, safety, and comfort.
|Profiles are screened for scammers||Kinda expensive|
|The site adheres to its Christian values||You need to pay to communicate|
|They have numerous success stories including people I know personally|
|The women are more likely to be sincere|
|They don’t allow sexually provocative photos|
Yes, you read that right. Tinder is a good free site to meet Filipinas. There are some hookers on there but you can screen for those easily. There are a lot of women on there who are looking for a real relationship. You can set it to wherever you want. Many guys prefer to look for women in the provinces so you can set your location to say Dumaguete or Toledo and look for a girl there. You can downlaod Tinder for free.
Filipino Cupid is the largest Filipino dating site in the world boasting over 1-million members. This is a more traditional dating site where unlike Christian Filipina they don’t check profiles or offer human matching services. However, the sheer volume of users means your chances of finding a match are high.
The majority of male members of FilipinoCupid come from the United States and European countries, while female members are of Filipino descent. Most female users are within the age range of 25-44, while the male member base is condensed within the 35-54 years of age. There are hardly any women users who have a premium membership, but a lot of Western users have one. This clearly shows that the men like to be proactive in this dating website when it comes to interaction and contacting the other gender. However, when it comes to having a verified badge, there are more female profiles who have them than men.
Most users—whether male or female—indicate in their profiles that they are looking for love or for someone to have a serious relationship with. Clearly, this is not the website for hookups—whether online or offline. Visit site

The member base of AsianDating is undeniably split into gender and age. Most of its male members are between the ages of 35-44 and most come from Caucasian ethnic roots. While its female members are mostly within the age range of 25-44 and the majority are from the Asian countries of Japan, China, Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines. We have come in to contact with some premium members by being able to message them, and all were male profiles.
There are hardly any female users who have a premium account. A huge percentage of the profiles who are active on the site are free members, so if you really want to communicate with other members of the dating site, it is best to upgrade your membership. Having a premium account lets you communicate with all users of the site—even free members can reply to you for free. Visit site
Filipinokisses.com is a website that matches Filipina women and men to partners from around the world to and the Philippines, of course! As I got started on my dating journey, I really only wanted websites that were established and legit. This one has been up and running for over ten years-2006 to be exact-and so you can feel good about what you’re getting. Profiles are free to create, always a plus. However, there is a paid membership fee, we will discuss that later on.
You can feel confident and safe here about dating, no matter your sexual preference. This dating site is for men seeking women. There is a separate site for ladyboys and those who admire them. You can meet and date any gender that you prefer. Those in the LGBT community will also find this is a safe place to seek love.
Under the free membership, you can register, make a few daily free contacts, and women write emails to men for nothing. There is also free email and chat translation, too.
Features to Look Forward To
The Filipino Kisses dating site has plenty of nice features, especially if you are a little shy. I liked that you could send polite icebreaker messages to the members that are automated. That way you don’t have to come up with the right words to say or risk losing credibility when you use a cheesy pickup line (I did that when I was younger, and I do not recommend it).
Ladies you are in luck. You can send messages to others for free. You can make a list of your favorite profiles and browse them and you can also learn some good Filipino phrases for easier conversation. Julie’s English is getting better each day, but it is a two-way street and I do my best to sometimes use Tagalog words when it’s easier. Some I learned right on Filipino Kisses.
Besides, learning to use some basic phrases and words goes a long way in showing you are serious about meeting and getting to know one another.
I also enjoyed the use of the Webcam chat feature. Although Julie and I eventually traded phone numbers and began communicating over mobile, the webcam chat was a nice way to kick things off. You can also connect your WhatsApp, WeChat, QQ or Facebook-among others-to the site and take it with you on the go. I liked talking to Julie while riding the train home over WhatsApp. Visit site
It may come as a surprise that I’m recommending e-harmony as it’s not necessarily a Filipino dating site. The reason I am recommending it is because they have matching that is top notch. When you join you have to fill out a survey that takes about 30 minutes. Afterwards it matches you based on the answers you provided.
What I like about it is that both sides have to pay to be on it. Therefore a Filipina who can pay to be on e-Harmony is highly unlikely to be a scammer. It’s not my first choice, though, because the selection of Filipinas will be limited. Learn more

Which Sites to Stay Away From
AsianBeautyOnline is a site that I would steer clear from. In my opinion, that site is full of fake profiles. The blatant misspellings and grammatical errors make me feel like this is a churn and burn site designed to just extract money from hardworking men just looking for a decent wife in Asia.
I’d also stay away from DateinAsia. It’s free and you’ll encounter a plethora of scammers on the site.
