88chinadate.com would certainly like you to believe they are an online Chinese dating site that is strictly committed to Chinese women meeting western men from around the world. Here are a few statements made on their home page:
* The best site for Chinese girls and Chinese dating, romance, relationship and marriage;
* Exclusive matrimonial portal for Chinese dating only;
* Exclusive site for Chinese dating only; and
* View Chinese dating profiles (our favourite).
That all sounds pretty promising if you’re a guy interested in China dating, and seeking some quality Chinese dating services where you can hopefully find the Chinese love of your life. There’s just one catch – there are almost no Chinese dating profiles to view!
We did a search of Women in China between the ages of 18 to 55 (55 was strangely the maximum age a woman was entitled to be.) and we found a total of 20 Chinese women on the website. There were 50 men “from China” on the site and most of them were not Chinese. However, remarkably for a site that is “Exclusive for Chinese dating only”, there were 23 women from Indonesia and at least 216 men from Indonesia (it stopped letting us search when we hit that number).
In fact, things appear to be getting worse, as on this “best site for Chinese girls and Chinese dating” the last 9 girls to join and last 9 guys to join (this is the highlight of their incredibly boring and amateurish home page) were as follows;
Boys: 8 from Indonesia, 1 from France
Girls: 6 from Indonesia, 2 from China and 1 from the Philippines.
So, regardless of the other flaws with 88chinadate.com, of which there are many, the best we could possibly say about it is that it’s a great online Chinese dating website if you’re interested in dating Indonesian men. However, if you’re interested in dating Chinese women this site really SUCKS!! Pretty clearly this is not a Chinese dating site at all and it should be named 88indonesiadate.com.
