Congratulations, Tim & Jennifer!

Dear CB Friends,

We LOVE LOVE LOVE to hear your Love Stories!

Here’s one from real Cherry Blossoms Members, Tim & Jennifer M.:

I was temporarily working with my job in a very small South Dakota town. The apartment I rented was owned by a local man, ironically married to a young Filipina he’d met on Cherryblossoms.com. He gave me your site information so I created a profile. I was a member for several months talking with many very endearing women from different countries. After traveling back to my home state for my birthday I was on CB.com and saw a beautiful young Filipina woman’s picture and decided to check her profile. The next evening, my birthday, she had seen that I visited her profile and she contacted me! We immediately began corresponding and three months later were together in the Philippines meeting for the first time. A second trip and 7 months later, I proposed and began the process of bringing her to the United States. She means the world to me and is the best thing that has happened in my life! We’re a few months away from our 5th year anniversary and are doing incredibly well. So if you need someone to give another member hope in finding someone on Cherryblossoms.com, don’t give up! The person you have been looking for is worth waiting for and you can’t wait too long to find them, even if they happen to be in another country!! Happy hunting on Cherryblossoms.com!

Sincerest thanks,

Tim and Jennifer Meister

Wow! Congratulations to you, Tim & Jennifer, on your 5 years together. Wishing you many more years of Health, Happiness and Love!

Online Dating Advice: What to do if it’s not a Match?

Seriously, folks. This does happen. With so many different kinds of people doing online dating, you’re bound to come across someone who isn’t a perfect match. You might be looking for someone with a healthy lifestyle, maybe someone without kids, or even a certain religion.

So what do you do if they’re not a good match for you?

You can “ghost” them and just not respond. We don’t recommend this; it leaves the other person wondering if you got their message.

You could be rude and tell them, “NO! I don’t like you.” We don’t suggest this either. We encourage you to be sensitive to the other person’s feelings. It can be really hurtful and demoralizing to the other person to receive a message like that.

We suggest being kind and polite to everyone, even if you DON’T feel like you’re a dating match.
Here’s a sample to try: “Sorry, I don’t feel like we’re a good match. I wish you the best of luck in finding your perfect person!”

What if you’re not a good match for them?

If someone sends you a message saying that you’re not a good match for them, take it gracefully. Even if it’s a rude rejection, be the bigger person. Thank them for taking the time to respond to you and wish them well.

Respect their wishes- don’t keep messaging if they feel there isn’t a match. It’s rude to keep pushing it, especially if they’ve made their wishes known.

Move on! Believe it or not (and you should), there are thousands more single men and women who are looking for love on Cherry Blossoms. There ARE more people who DO match what you’re looking for.

If you’re on Cherry Blossoms (and you should be, if you’re looking for Asian Online Dating), take advantage of their automated matches and their advanced searches. This takes a lot of the leg work out of searching.

We hope to see you online!

Aloha,

CB Staff

The Insider’s Guide to a Winning International Online Dating Profile

insidersguide

 

Creating an online dating profile can be a scary prospect. While the idea of long distance dating and dating Asian women may sound exciting, it’s a virtual guarantee that you’ll be destined for failure if you don’t spend some time upfront on this important task.

You may be the greatest guy in the world and have a lot to offer, but online dating requires that you put your strengths in writing and stand out from the crowd. Sounds suspiciously like a job interview, doesn’t it? While there are similarities, this is so much more fun if you do it right! Consider these key profile elements as you get started:

Grab ‘Em Fast!

One of the first things that people are going to see is the first line in your profile. It would be a good idea to spend some time making this distinctive and intriguing. Some people like to use song lyrics for headlines while others throw out a bit of humor. Whichever way you choose to go with it, keep it clean and non-controversial and you should be just fine.

Details Please

It should come as no surprise that the profiles that attract the most attention are the most well-written ones. This doesn’t mean that you need to be a professional writer or that you should hire one to excel here.

What you will need to do is set yourself apart from the “I like music and I love to laugh” crowd. While it’s ok to share that you enjoy a good time, provide specific examples of hobbies or activities that you appreciate so that readers can get a better sense of who you are.  For example, try “I like jazz music and eating Thai food”. You get the idea.

When writing your profile, be clear about your objectives and avoid any impulse to either be dishonest or negative in any way. Tell the ladies what you want! “I want to meet a nice woman for romance and love.”

A Picture is Worth…

Well, it’s worth a lot! To begin with, having some good images on your profile is worth not having your profile automatically excluded from searches as many women simply won’t even glimpse a profile that that doesn’t have a picture. As a general rule, posting photos will your profile will get you ten times as many responses as a profile without them! As your photos could be one of the most important elements of your dating profile, here are few tips to make sure you’re on the right track:

  •         For your main profile photo, choose a picture of just you, so there is no guesswork involved.

 

  •         Avoid using your computer’s webcam for photos as these generally turn out pretty dreadful.

 

  •         Post images that show your friendly side, with a normal and easy smile.

 

  •         Include at least two photos and preferably four or more.

 

  •         It’s not considered a good idea to post pictures of yourself with the opposite sex, even if is your sister! Many women find this a turn off and it can be very confusing. More confusion leads to less responses.

There is plenty of conflicting advice about international online dating that can make things confusing for someone new. While the stigma of long distance dating has virtually disappeared, if you want to meet Asian women online, you’ll need to start by working on your profile. If you use the pointers we’ve given you here, you will stand out from the crowd and have the experience you desire. That’s a promise!

The Top Misconceptions About Dating Asian Women

 

While the idea of dating Asian women is appealing to many men, some just approach the entire enterprise from the wrong perspective. Perhaps it’s a lifetime of being exposed to stereotypes of Asian women in Western movies or other popular culture that forms our beliefs. Regardless, there are many false ideas about Asian dating that are not going to serve your best interests. Here are the top misconceptions about Asian women that could be holding you back.

All Asian Women Are the Same

To lump all Asian women into one class and expect them to be the same is naivety at its best. We don’t expect that Italian women will be the same as German women, or even that someone from California will behave like someone from Wisconsin. All Asian women are not the same. Consider this: Asia includes 51 different countries and a total population of 4.3 billion people. China alone is made up of 23 separate provinces (and 11 other divisions), with as many as 292 languages spoken in the country. These are diverse cultures with very different people and to lump them all together would be a mistake.

 

Asian Women Are All Submissive

If you are solely interested in Asian dating because you believe that all Asian women are submissive, you may be in for an awakening. Long-standing stereotypes lead Western men to think that the typical Asian woman can be found trailing her man by several paces with her head bowed. While you may be able to find your dream subservient mate if you look long enough, this isn’t today’s reality. Filipina women are known to be intensely loyal as well as headstrong. In China, Shanghainese women are more dominant. Finally, there is a culture in the Yunnan Province in Western China in which the male can be kicked out of the home at any time, and often is at the whim of the female. This isn’t the norm, as what you are more likely to find are polite women who lack some of the drama that Western women tend to exude. Takeaway? Don’t assume anything with regards to Asian women and treat each one as an individual worthy of respect.

 

All Asian Women Want a Western Man

While Western men are attractive to many Asian women for a variety of reasons, this isn’t universal. A Western man can’t just assume that any Asian woman he runs across is going to fall at his feet. Many Asian women today have come to realize that the grass may not be greener on the other side of the fence. When it comes to money, security is just as important to women in other cultures as it is to yours, so wanting someone who can provide this isn’t a race issue. Even if a majority of Asian women don’t want anything to do with Western men, let’s still do the math. Remember those 4.3 billion people in Asia? If just 25% of the females desired a Western man, you’d have a pool of over a half a billion women as potential mates. Those aren’t bad odds.

 

Online Asian dating offers willing singles an opportunity to connect and have fun. Your best approach is to ditch the misconceptions about Asian women and simply approach your Cherry Blossoms experience as the adventure it was meant to be.

More Marriage-Minded Single Asian Women are on Cherry Blossoms

More Marriage-Minded Single Asian Women are on Cherry Blossoms!

Finding the right partner through online dating can be a daunting task. On many dating sites, members just want to have fun, or hook up, and are not searching for a serious relationship. The site with a difference is CherryBlossoms.com because most of its members are sincerely looking for a life partner.

Why?

Cherry Blossoms is known as the website with more marriage-minded singles. Don’t get me wrong; you can still find friends and have fun but you have a much greater chance of finding your soulmate than with other websites.

Here are two reasons why:

Some of the difference can be attributed to the fact there are a lot of Asian Christians, especially Christian Filipinas, on Cherry blossoms. If you’re a religious sort, it’s important to consider a potential partner’s religion, beliefs, family background, and Christian values.

Another major factor is demographics: a lot of women who use Cherry Blossoms are older and are looking to marry or enter serious long term relationships, not play around! If you’re serious about an honest to goodness relationship with someone, doesn’t it make sense to search for someone seeking the same thing?

It can make all the difference in the world when you’re looking to meet Asian women online.

If you’re looking for a Christian Asian woman, or are seriously looking to be in a relationship, Cherry Blossoms is the place for you.

Don’t be shy! Be confident, real, and honest about your intentions, we know you’ll find your soulmate!
