A popular Asian dating community especially for people from Singapore. Singapore Love Links is operated by the Cupid Media group and as such offers a standard format plus an excellent set of features to help members find and communicate with one another. There's an active community of around 41,500 using this service.
As the name suggests, this is a site where you can meet Singaporeans for friendship or romance, or any other kind of relationship. It is non-exclusive and welcomes people of any background. In particular it is popular among western men wishing to meet women from that part of the world.
Once you register, you will receive a standard membership with limited messaging ability and cut-down access. You can communicate with other paid members via email or instant messaging.
But you won't be able to talk to other Standard (non-paying) members. Before composing a long email its worth bearing in mind messages can be sent but not read by the recipient until either party upgrades.
Profiles on SingaporeLoveLinks contain a lot of detail. On creating your profile, it is advisable to add as much information as possible in order that it won't be treated as spam and removed. Adding a photo is also highly recommended, though this is entirely optional. Those with webcams can record a video greeting and upload that as well.
Many people filter out profiles that lack either video or photos - you will definitely improve your success rate by adding one or both.
The tools and options provided are thoughtful and simple to use. Searching for people can be performed to any level of detail using either the quick search form or the detailed options which allow the setting of various lifestyle and appearance criteria. You can also save named searches.
Perks of Paid memberships
Upgrading your membership to Gold will allow you full email and chat privileges, while a Platinum membership offers access to video mail and text messaging features.
It will also unlock any conversations with free members, so that they will be able to read any messages you may have sent previously (providing of course they are still active).
There are some other perk to paid members. Firstly you can surf incognito. This means nobody can see which profiles you've visited and this won't inform people that you've looked at their profile. It also means that you won't see ads on the site. Finally, you'll also get to see photos in full size - even if you don't have one of your own.
Singaporelovelinks.com meets a special need for those looking to connect with others who understand the Singaporean culture and lifestyle. It is a small yet vibrant community. An appreciation of cultural differences is all that is needed to allow the site to maintain its charm and friendly atmosphere.
