International Dating: Why The Era of the Mail Order Bride Is Over

In days before online dating websites first cropped up, the international dating process looked a little something like this:

  • Man opens up newspaper or publication, looks for the section about “Mail Order Brides.”
  • Man writes to potential prospects with his offers.
  • After a few nerve-wracking months, the mail-order bride’s visa is approved and she goes to live with her new husband in the United States.

No matter whether you were looking to date Chinese women or Filipino women, this old rule of thumb made it possible for the husband-to-be to choose from the very best and beautiful mail-order brides. Most of these women were dreaming of a life in a country where it was possible to achieve success and enjoy a fulfilling life without worrying about running afoul of government or experiencing crippling economic circumstances.

Fast-forward mere years later, and the world of online dating has changed the rules of international dating. Mail order brides as we used to know are long gone and have been replaced by educated, successful, and independent Asian women who are looking for life partners who are able to keep up. This means that competition on the international dating scene has become remarkably fierce, as women are becoming pickier regarding who they want to spend the rest of their lives with.

Why the shift towards online dating?

Just what are some reasons behind this sudden shift in online dating? Take a look for yourself:

The Internet has made it possible for everyone and anyone to indulge in international dating. While there’s a larger pool of international women to date, this also means that you’re facing more competition from men who are interested in dating Asian women.

Once upon a time, mail order brides came from war-torn, economically ravaged countries where women were desperate to find a way out. While there are still some countries out there are still facing these unfortunate terrors, the majority of Asian women who are interested in international dating come from wealthy countries that are experiencing skyrocketed economic growth. This means that, for better or worse, there’s less desperation involved with mail order brides, and they’ve become pickier about life partners as a result.

While there are many other reasons why the old adage of the mail order bride has disappeared along with acid-washed jeans and mullets, it’s important for you to understand how to make the most of the revised international dating scene. After all, it’s a new world out there – and unless you play by the rules, you may not find the life partner you’ve been looking for. Consider these tips to help increase your chances when dating Filipino women and Chinese women:

Remember that there’s a pool of competition out there for each women on your favorite international dating site. Therefore, resist the urge to email her about why you’re so great. This may have worked on mail order brides, but dating Asian women means you need to appeal to her. Don’t list out your benefits and income like it’s a resume; instead, ask questions about what she likes, enjoys, listens to, watches, etc. Find a way to tie it back to your interests. Asian women will be much more interested in what you have to say, because you’re making the effort to connect with what makes her unique.

Put some time and consideration into your emails. Asian women are becoming much more selective about who they talk to on international dating websites. A simple “hi” or “hello” isn’t going to cut it. Chat to her like you would a long-lost friend you haven’t seen in years.
Don’t assume that you’re golden once she starts writing back to you. Every email encounter is another opportunity to demonstrate why you’re the life partner she’s been dreaming of. Keep connecting with her interests, share funny stories, and keep the conversation flowing. Pretty soon, you’ll be the only email she can’t wait to read.
Keep your chin up. In the time of mail order brides, most men were successful with the first woman they contacted. However, things have changed considerable since the World Wide Web and international dating became entwined. You might strike out with the first woman; you might strike out with ten women. No matter what, keep your chin up and your eyes focused on the prize. You and your future partner are looking for each other, and you will find one another – you just need to keep searching. And remember, each dead-end is a new opportunity to find your life partner!

International dating is more exciting, scintillating and thrilling than ever before. There are thousands of Asian women who are looking for a man like you to connect and share their lives with. All you need to do is start talking to them!

Finding True Love Online with Cherry Blossoms


If you’re searching for a different kind of love than that which you have already experienced, you may find that special relationship through dating Asian women online. You’ll be able to find more interesting women if you expand your horizons and use an online dating service that specializes in international contacts with women from the other side of the world.

Social interaction is finding a new home online. Many more singles have realized that you can find that special someone online, even if she doesn’t happen to live nearby. There are Asian women online who are themselves looking for a special person to share their lives with. You’ll find various age groups represented as well, and age differences are not always so important in Asian culture.

You’ve probably gone to bars or night clubs in the past, and maybe met women, but they weren’t representative of the person you wanted to spend time with in a true relationship. If you want more than just enjoyable dates, then Asian dating may give you the chance to find your one true love. The Internet brings so many people together now, and it could work for you, too. It’s an excellent place to start looking for a forever relationship.

Technology touches many parts of our lives, and dating is no different. Internet users who utilize international dating sites don’t live online. They get out into the “real world” all the time, but that world has not shown them true love. So it’s natural to turn to the Internet to help in finding a special woman to spend time with.

It’s much easier to find someone who may eventually be your lover online than it is using old-fashioned ways, like going to night clubs or bars. Even local dating services do not have much more success in bringing people into relationships that truly last. Perhaps these people have too much in common. Whatever the reason, dating Asian women through international dating sites is a real and valid way to find someone special.

Online dating will allow you to widen the scope of the people you meet, and some may share your interests, likes and dislikes. You may be able to discover an Asian woman who is interested in spending time online with you, and perhaps in meeting you in person, as well. That will come of its own accord, if it’s going to happen. Many people meet and take their relationships to the next level, while some people are content to have a loving friendship online.

You can screen for women with specific ethnicity and personality when you use online dating sites. It has never been any easier than it is today to find women from all around the world, to share your time with, and perhaps, eventually, to spend the rest of your life with, too.
