Chnlove is one of the largest Asian dating sites online. The site is primarily aimed at Western men looking for Chinese women. The Chinese women are marriage minded rather than seeking boyfriends or men for short term relationships. Well that's the theory anyway.
Like most dating sites, Chnlove is totally free to sign up to. This is nice as you can view the lady profiles and see if you like the idea of finding a Chinese wife. If you're new to finding a Chinese wife then sign up to Chnlove and login to see if you like any of the ladies on the site.
There are 10000+ ladies on Chnlove, so once you login you're not going to find it difficult finding someone you like the look of. Unfortunately the site's search facilities are fairly basic. It would have been nice to have been able to search for a lady with a certain English speaking level, or find a lady with a certain job for example.
All the ladies on the site are represented by Chinese marriage agencies. Some are honest, some aren't. China isn't known for its high quality of business ethics, so beware.
It's worth bearing in mind that Chnlove doesn't use internationally recognised English Language test scores, so if it says a woman speaks good English then it's not necessarily true.
Many Chinese ladies extensively retouch and airbrush their profile photos. It's a cultural thing - Chinese cities are full of photographic studios. If you contact a lady be sure to get natural looking photos from her.
Chnlove has a free Cupid Note feature where you can send a free email to see if a lady is interested in you. Once you've established that she is interested in you then you can send her an email. This is where it gets expensive. Chnlove charges you a couple of dollars each time you send or receive an email. The emails are sent via a translator (many of the Chnlove girls can't speak or write English). There is a huge flaw in the pay per email model. Since the Chinese agencies get a cut of the email revenue, it encourages scams. Agencies will send out duplicate emails (this happened to me). They will email you if you don't contact a girl for a few days (also happened to me). They will send you admirer emails from 20 year old beautiful girls when there's no way on earth she would want to marry a 40 year old guy for anything other than money. What's also worrying is that there is good evidence to suggest that some (many?) ladies on Chnlove are actually fake. I don't think it happened to me, but I've heard bad things from other members of the site.
While most Chnlove members aren't really fussed with losing a few dollars here or there, the dishonest marriage agencies are getting seriously rich off these few dollars! US Dollars go a long way in China. The Chinese girl I met through Chnlove only earnt $8 a day, and that was in a fairly good office based job (albeit in a city in China's central rust belt).
So to summarise I'd say that Chnlove has some lovely ladies. Some or most of them actually exist! If you go to visit one then make meticulous preparations. And please use Chinese Love Links instead - it's much cheaper and the anti-fraud measures are much better. Failing that Cherry Blossoms is worth a look.
