Almost 900,000 users are currently registered with the majority of the members being Filipina ladies. It’s 100% free to join and send messages, but I recommend upgrading to a Premium account if you want to maximize your results.
One of the nice things about Pinalove is that filipinas join the site to meet foreign guys. There are three different types of filipinas you’ll meet : girls who like dating foreigners, girls who avoid foreigners like the plague and girls looking to sell massage services.
I would estimate that 75% of the girls on PinaLove are interested in meeting foreigners for hookups and relationships while 25% are looking to make money as a freelance massage therapist. Sometimes, you’ll receive messages from girls looking to charge you money.
I don’t recommend giving any money to Filipinas online because prostitution is illegal in the Philippines and you could scammed or worse (caught in a police sting). Also, these girls usually have pimps, which opens up a whole new set of problems.
Avoid the freelancers and focus on the normal girls who want to meet foreigners.
How to Create Your Free Account
Go to PinaLove and click the “Create Account” button. The signup process is simple and you’ll be asked to enter your:
– Email Address
– Select “Man”
– Select what you are looking for
– Date of Birth
– Height and Weight
The next step requires your:
– Profile Headline
– Profile Description
– Education Level
– English and Tagalog ability
– Want Children?
You’ll also be asked to upload a picture and confirm your account via email. Pictures are the most important aspect of your profile. I recommend uploading 2 to 3 different pictures to showcase your personality, looks and style.
If you’re having trouble figuring out which pictures to upload, then try posting your most popular photos from Facebook or Instagram.
You can try: 1 photo of your doing something outdoors (travel, fitness, etc), 1 photo of you in social setting, and 1 personal photo of you at home or alone.
Mix up your main profile photo to see which one gets the most responses and messages. You can also ask a female friend which one of your profile pictures looks the best if you need some further insight.
The female to male ratio on PinaLove is pretty solid so you should experience at 20 to 40% reply rate. I had the most success sending a simple message like “How are You?” to gauge the girl’s interest. Most Filipinas speak English but some may not feel very comfortable talking in English. It’s best to send a simple message than a more complicated one.
You can send 1 message very 10 minutes with a free subscription, but I recommend upgrading to the Premium Membership to send unlimited messages.
Because you can contact more girls and maximize your results. Also, some girls like sending A TON of messages so you cannot really talk to them using a free account. You really do get what you pay for on PinaLove.
The 1 month Membership costs $24.95 but you can get a discount if you subscribe to a long term membership.
Setting Up the “Date”
After sending a few messages, you should ask for her number and move the conversation over to WhatsApp/Phone/Text. Texting is the easiest way to communicate with girls in the Philippines and most of them have a Globe phone number. Buy load for your phone at any local shop or use Recharge.com to add load online.
I prefer calling the girl on the phone to make sure she is legit and not a scammer. There are some scammers on PinaLove who put up fake pictures and pretend to be someone else. Talking to the girl on the phone eliminates this problem.
After talking on the phone for a few minutes, you can move back to texting to setup the date. You don’t need to take out filipinas to an expensive dinner date like western chicks.
Simply invite them over to your place to hang out and most of them will say yes if they like you. Sometimes, you’ll be better off meeting at a local bar or restaurant if she is very shy. Always pick a place near your room so you can bounce back to your room once you are done. The further away you meet your date, the harder it will be to bring them back to your place.
Is PinaLove Worth It?
PinaLove is one of the best online dating sites in the Philippines and it’s pretty easy to meet filipinas on the site. I recommend getting a premium account and using it to meet beautiful pinays easily.
