As you might expect from a dating site, Cebuanas has the usual search facilities and you can view profiles of many beautiful Pinay girls. Profiles are quite brief, but the members can at least upload a number of different photos of themselves. One nice thing is that the photos are a lot quicker to load than on Filipino Cupid. I’ve spent hours on the Cupid dating sites waiting for the profile photos to actually appear.
There are a few other facilities on Cebuanas, such as online chat, and the ability to upload videos. One nice feature is the live help facility, which provides you with instant online support should you have questions about the site.
There’s also a flower service. I’m not normally a fan of the gift services run by dating sites. They’re often expensive and the ladies don’t always want you to spend a lot of money sending them gifts. But if you think you’ve found the love of your life it’s worth sending her flowers then asking her to take a photo of her holding your chosen bouquet. That way you can at least tell that she’s real and not some African romance scammer dude.
Incidentally, despite the name, Cebuanas isn’t just for Cebu girls dating! You’ll also find girls from Davao City, Butuan City, Manila and a whole range of other locations across the islands of the Philippines.
Is Cebuanas the Best Filipina Dating Site on the Planet?
One thing that always bothers me is that a lot of sites sort of imply that it’s hard to find Filipinas seeking marriage to a Western man. In fact there are hundreds of thousands of Filipinas looking for husbands, so it’s not hard to find them on various websites or by other means. I found a few Filipina friends when I was chatting to a girl from another Asian country who had a Facebook account. It just so happened that her Filipina friends befriended me. Some of these girls are very lovely, and single as well! I think I am overlooking Filipina beauty sometime, but it has been Chinese girls who I like the best.
I found Cebuanas rather expensive for what it is. At the time of writing the annual membership was $84.95 more than what I paid for annual membership of one of the Cupid Media sites. One good thing is that Cebuanas often offer a couple of freebies as part of the annual membership though. It’s nice to see that sometimes they offer complimentary membership of their other sites like Saigon Darlings. The snag with this of course is that if you’re interested in a Filipina bride then you’re not that likely to want a Vietnamese bride or a mail order bride from one of the Cebuanas sister sites like OdessaDarlings or CaribbeanDarlings.
So if you’re interested in Cebu girls, then there are plenty of other sites worth a look. Filpino Cupid is a vast site and you might get totally overwhelmed by the choice here. Thank goodness that the site has first rate search facilities, and some built-in matchmaking.
A Foreign Affair or LoveMe are also worth a visit. The sites are quite expensive to use. However, the huge advantage of these sites is that you can meet the ladies featured on the site on a singles romance tour of the Philippines. This is a good idea if you haven’t traveled overseas much and the thought of visiting the Philippines to meet somebody you found online is a bit daunting.
Finally, if you’re interested in free online dating then DateInAsia is worth a look. Just bear in mind that this site is full of crazy people (both men and women), and it’s probably not the best place to look for a Pinay bride if you’re completely new to the bewildering world of online dating.
So Cebuanas is worth a look, but there are plenty of alternative sites where you can meet Filipina singles online. I don’t think I’d look much further than Filipina Cupid or DateInAsia, but there are different girls on each site!
