Chinese Love Links has true oriental flavor. It brings together Chinese and other singles seeking dating, love and marriage. Posting a profile is free. Those wishing to use additional services, including the on-site email are required to upgrade.

This vibrant site allows singles of Chinese background or descent to find the platonic or romantic relationship they've been looking for.



There are usually at least a couple of thousand people online at ChineseLoveLinks at any given time, and most will find there's ample opportunity to meet someone. With around 157,000 active members, there are people there seeking everything from pen pals to foreign marital prospects.

Guest members (Standard) can create a picture profile and peruse other people's profiles but don't have full unrestricted email access. While guest can send email to others, they can't read any messages received until they purchase a membership.



Searching for People

The basic search form which appears directly on your home page allows searching by standard preferences such as age and gender. Importantly it permits filtering on the other member's “last active” date so you won't waste time viewing people who are inactive.

Advanced search options allow members to set not only the desired location of prospective matches but traits they would find attractive in a potential mate. Those who upgrade are able to complete the "personality profile" section.



Match Settings

The “Match Info” part lets you get very specific about who you'd like to meet. The responses given here are what the site uses to send you match suggestions. You can even specify things like living situation, employment status, income, and the age of children.

Of course, this is only reliable if the other person has actually put forward this amount of information on their profiles. Most of these are standard settings but at the bottom of the page it shows a few choices especially for Chinese people: Chinese star sign and ability in speaking Chinese.



In Summary...

While this site is a good option for those who share a common Japanese culture and background, all races, backgrounds and ethnicities are openly welcome to join.

ChineseLoveLinks is also a good choice for those considering foreign marriage with an Asian woman (or man for that matter). Scanning profiles for a few moments reveals countless Chinese women there seeking foreign husbands.

Free translation software can alleviate communications barriers by easily translating emails into English. A Platinum membership is required for the translation service.

    There are a lot of scammers on the site so pick and choose wisely who you are talking to. I wish that they (the web site) can get a hold on these scammers. I have to screen out plenty before I can find a good suitor.

    I want a love to last forever. i am a very peace loving guy with the hope that i will find a pretty and loving soul partner in my life, a girl i will promise to dedicate all my life to and a girl i will never think of divorcing or separating with as long as i am still alive. And i will require the same gesture from her too! To be together forever and have an everlasting happy life together!

    I love to have the pretty girl of my life and i will make her feel happy every time of her life. I will like to tell her the truth always and she too tell me the truth always because on trust we can both have a happy life together.

    I live in China and met a woman on this site. Her English name is Jasmine and she is a real person. I paid the monthly fee (it was non-recurring), I messaged women that lived near me. Jasmine actually emailed me and said that the site thought we were a match. Now Llewellyn is correct in that you cannot judge a person by a photo. Jasmine did not look like her photo that much, but I am sure she couldn't judge me on my photo as well. On this site there is also a chat feature where women will send you a message while you are online on the site. I spoke with a few women (some couldn't write in English, so I couldn't chat with them) and I found all of them to be real people, living real lives.

    I highly recommend this site. I still am friends with Jasmine, although nothing romantic has really happened, but that is what meeting real people in the real world is all about. I never spent any more money on that site, but I may go back for more to see if I can meet that special one.

    I have experienced that many women use edited photo's and when I arrange a meeting, I find a completely different person to the attractive woman I saw on CLL. This is a waste of time and it's deceitful, to say the least. The second point is a photo of an attractive woman of, say 45....when I request a recent photo, she is truly 45 but the CLL photo was when she was 25....misleading and poor judgement. If this type of conduct can be controlled, then I would gladly renew my platinum membership...I'm still looking for that special one. Llewellyn.
