Vietnamese women seem to have been overlooked by Western men seeking Asian mail order brides. I think this will change as the Vietnamese economy improves, and Vietnam Cupid is leading a surge in popularity of Vietnamese brides for foreign men.
Vietnam Cupid is one of the many sites operated by Cupid Media. They own a large number of dating sites that are popular with men seeking mail order brides from Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America.
The sites all have a pretty standard look and feel. There’s a slick search facility, which allows you to search on a wide range of settings. Want to find a Vietnam woman who is 5′ 5″ and speaks French? Interested in short girls with University degrees and a good level of English? Searching for these women is really easy on Vietnam Cupid. Plus you can save your searches for later.
Vietnam Cupid offers a free membership option. This is fine for logging in and browsing the profiles. However, if you want to contact the ladies then you’ll need to pay for a Gold or Platinum subscription. Don’t worry though – the site is pretty affordable, and there’s a generous discount for signing up for a yearly membership. The good news is that if you buy a subscription your profile will become very popular, and you’ll have no end of attractive women who are interested in you.
One thing I like about Vietnam Cupid and the other sites is that they advertise widely in Asia. As a result they’ve done a really good job of attracting top quality Asian women. Many have good jobs, a good level of education and a reasonable standard of living. As a result, they’re less likely to be marrying as a way out of poverty or just for the money.
On the downside, well there are plenty of scammers on the Cupid Media sites, and they target both men and women. Thankfully the site operators are quite responsive if you report some suspicious activity. But at the end of the day, remember that preventing yourself from getting scammed is up to you. Vietnam Cupid is simply a place for making contact with and chatting to Vietnamese girls, and the site can’t be held responsible if you start sending money to people you’ve met online.
Dating Vietnamese Women
So what benefits are there in dating a Vietnamese woman? Vietnam dating is pretty new, but I can see these benefits:
- Looks. Vietnamese women are in my opinion some of the hottest in all of Asia. They seem to be much better looking that Thais or Filipinas. I guess they’re pretty similar to the Chinese women from the Southern coastal Provinces like Guangxi and Guangdong.
- Mild temperment. Well I’ve dated a number of Chinese women I’ve met on Vietnam Cupid’s sister site Chinese Love Links. To be perfectly honest a lot of them have been snappy and quite fierce at times. Cantonese girls from the Southern Provinces tend to be much milder. Vietnamese women are also known for a more laid back temperment.
- Low cost of living. Take it from me, it often takes longer to find an Asian wife than you ever thought possible. So you may need to factor in many visits to Asia before you find your ideal match. So it goes without saying that you should look for a foreign bride in a country with a low cost of living. Thankfully you’ll find that your US dollars or other foreign currency goes a longway in Vietnam.
- Booming economy. Vietnam has come a long way since the Vietnam war. Vietnam’s economy is booming, and should do well over the next few decades. It’s also growing in importance as an international destination. In fact I read recently that Vietnam has now gained direct flights from London’s Heathrow Airport, meaning that this should do wonders for the Vietnamese tourist trade from Europe.
On the downside, it’s worth bearing in mind that Vietnam is a developing country. Transport infrastructure is generally poor, so don’t fall in love with a girl then find out it takes a 12 hour bus journey for you to go and meet her!
You might also find that good English speaking women are hard to come by, and Vietnamese is not an easy language to try learning.
Other Ways of Finding Vietnam Brides
There are plenty of other online dating sites where you can find Vietnamese girls to chat to. The sites tend to focus exclusively on Vietnamese women, or they have women from a wider range of Asian countries.
One other dating site which, like Vietnam Cupid, focuses exclusively on Vietnamese dating is Saigon Darlings. There is a good selection of Vietnamese brides on this site, though it lacks the sophisticated searching and matchmaking features of Vietnam Cupid.
As to the sites with many Asian nationalities on them, you might like to try:
There is also a site called iDateAsia. Since this is a pay per contact site I hesitate to recommend it, especially given the amount of money I ended up spending on its sister site Chnlove.
So if you’re interested in Vietnamese women, or you want an alternative to dating Chinese or Thai women, then Vietnam Cupid is well worth a look.
