Asiame.com lists Chinese women who are seeking long-term relationships with men from around the world. There's a different system for men and women. Correspondence is initially handled via the site's translator; Men must purchase credits for the use of this service.
Asiame, aka Chnlove matches men around the world with single women in Asia for romance and marriage. The nearly six thousand women who have their profile featured are selected by overseas Chinese and other Asian agencies.
Signing up is free of charge and men can create a simple but descriptive profile in less than two minutes.
After joining, men are able to correspond with women on the site but will be charged a fee for doing so. As with other foreign marriage services, fees are charged per contact and so can work out quite expensive. There appears to be no way for women to join as it seems it's by invitation only.
Once you access the members' area you can set your profile to visible or invisible. If your profile is visible to others, be prepared for chat requests. Lots and lots of them. After creating my basic photo-less profile I was receiving chat requests every 30 seconds or so.
If you are invited to a live chat, you'll be able to open the chat window but won't be able to communicate until you buy some credits.
Neither will you be able to view additional pictures on other members' profiles until you have a valid, approved photo on your own - the option is there during registration however it can be skipped.
The Credit System
The site's credit system means there are no regular monthly fees, rather members pay only for those services they use, including making contact with women. After purchasing credits you can break the ice with a handy Cupid note or use the site's profile introduction service.
Credits are required for almost all activity on the site, including viewing video introductions, live chat, call services, emailing and sending gifts. Every email costs 1 credit. Cam chats cost 0.6 credits per minute.
With credits costing $1.99 each you can see that the cost soon starts to grow. Buying credit packs can work out slightly cheaper if you're very active on the site.
To help break down cultural and language barriers, the site offers a Chinese/English language translation service to members for a fee. The translations service is offered for both telephone and personal dates.
There is a meeting organizer called "Cupid Date" which provides assistance in arranging meeting times with other people and allows you to keep track of who you've met and when.
If you use "Cupid Date" you will be charged $139 for each date - this includes a 90-minute translation service. In order to participate in Cupid Date, you will need to have completed an IMBRA form.
If you're not ready to meet in person , "Love Call" lets you schedule telephone dates with your chosen lady.
Asiame.com is there if you're interested in the world of international dating and marriage. It provides all services from getting in touch with girls to arranging dates with assisted translation services.
The site responsibly briefs members on the policies concerning IMBRA, or the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act.
Men have to pay for each service. If you're very active, the charges for chat and correspondence can become high. But there are no regular membership fees and you pay only for what you use.
