Plenty of Fish in the South China Sea

Wow, the site is growing rapidly now and there should be plenty of matches for everyone!

This week I’ve been doing a bit of reading about the story behind Markus Frind, the CEO of Plenty of Fish.

Now Plenty of Fish is one of the largest dating sites online…

I see parallels between Markus and myself. We’re both geeks, and we’ve both started our sites on a shoestring.

As this is 2012 and not 2002 I’m having to work a lot harder to pull in the new members to Asian Love Connections. There are a lot of dating sites out there these days! You’re lucky in having so many to choose from.

One thing that caught my eye is that Markus worked hard on making Plenty of Fish a bit special. One thing the site does is it shows you people who it thinks you’ll be interested in. The more you use the site, the better its predictions become (or so they claim).

Indeed this is something that I’ve been working on for Asian Love Connections.

You know Chnlove has something like 11,000 profiles of Chinese women on there. How on earth do you find your dream girl on a site like that? Especially when their search facility is so basic! I spent 3 days on that site before I found a girl to visit in China.

So I’ve been putting my thinking cap on and trying to figure out how I can predict which women YOU might be interested in. Really I don’t see why a dating site should have a search facility. Why should I waste your time showing you 100, 1000 or even 1000000 profiles? There ought to be a way of finding that needle in the haystack.

Well I’m working on this idea anyway. It’s gonna be much easier once there are more members. In the meantime I can suggest that you don’t be too specific about the age range or even country in which you want to find an Asian bride. Just hunt around the site, check out profiles and see if a particular member catches your fancy.

Website Roundup

The Asian Love Connections site is continuing to grow rapidly – see the latest statistics below. Female members are overwhelmingly from the Philippines, but I’m seeing quite a number of Vietnamese women sign up. Vietnamese women are smoking hot so check them out. What I will say is that Vietnam is still a little wild and lawless, and scams are rife. Be careful out there!

As always, if you have any comments, questions or suggestions about anything Asian dating related, then get in touch.

    Hey just wanted to let you know that this is pretty cool and I’m behind your site 100%. I tried POF before and got bored of the phony women on there. Hoping for better luck in the Philipines. Lol.Love your site. Keep up the awesome work.
