EastMeetEast-Asian dating app review



EastMeetEast is an dating app that is exclusively dedicated to Asian dating. It was released in 2014, and today over 120 thousand individuals have found partners through the app. Having more similar backgrounds or environments you have a higher chance to match and find who you are truly looking for.


EastMeetEast Verdict

Although it is not well known and popular yet in Japan, EastMeetEast is quite a good dating app for Asian.
Functions are simple and easy to understand, but to be honest with you, there might be different opinions on this app by gender because basically it’s quite expensive for men but it’s free for women.


Traffic by Countries

There are Philippines, Korea, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos users, but many of them lives in US. Japanese users are almost none, I don’t even see Japanese American people.

Traffic is down hill.
People prefer free apps such as Tinder which still there are many Asian users in there.

Users of EastMeetEast are more seriously looking for a “life-partner” than Tinder. Compare with many quick reply users of Tinder, the users are staying around 10 min average in the app for watch live streaming, and write comments.

How To Use EastMeetEast

First of all, you download the app, then let’s sign up.


Apple iTunes


Signing up for an account in EastMeetEast is not complicated, you are presented with two options on how you want to create your account.
You can either register using your Facebook account, which makes for a two step registration, or you can provide basic details such as your email address.
After you successfully register for the app, you will be asked to upload your profile photo which you can skip and do later.

Next, set up your bio.

Download your pictures first, more than two pictures at least. If you only put one picture of yourself, you’re likely to look like you’re a catfish, and it doesn’t give other people who see your profile a good impression. So if you want to get more matches, just put as many pictures as possible, and fill in the profile as much as you can. EastMeetEast will tell you what percentage you have completed your profile and it helps you to make a perfect profile.

See who’s around you on EastMeetEast

Now let’s get started!
You can see who’s there if you go to the Search page from the bottom left mark.


There are advanced search filters available which makes it easier for you to find specific kinds of people.
But members suggestions rarely change, which is a bit of disappointment.

On the top of the page you can see people Live streaming. Click if there’s your type or someone who looks interesting to see their Streams.
You can not only just watch, but comment also. It is a good opportunity to talk with people out there!

When you find someone you’re interested in, press his/her picture and see what kind of person they are.


You can see more pictures, what they like, their appearance and so on. If you want to talk to them, you can either send them ‘Smile’ from the smile icon on right side of the middle screen or message directly.

About user base, it is diverse. I use this app in Japan, but I see so many Asians from around the world.
For instance, Asian people in America, Philippines, Korea, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos and so on.
It’s quite a new app and because this app is in English, there are not so many Japanese.
I’d say 3:4=Japanese:Other asian people, so I recommend you to give it a try if you are seeking to meet new asian people from all over the world.

Also, what I have noticed is that more girls are on live streaming than other dating apps.
In my personal experience, there are always more guys are on live streaming than girls are on dating apps.
So I think, this reflects Asian girls’ preference for taking selfies and videos of themselves.
Age wise, there are more users in their 20’s than 30’s. Most members use EastMeetEast for meeting new people, making friends, and for dating.

Age Distribution would be women:men = 6:4 as far as I’ve seen, I think it’s to be fair since guys have to pay for all functions but not women so that the number of women is higher than the number of men.
