Our Review

PinaLove is a platform for men who want to date girls or transgenders from the Philippines. It has over a million members around the globe and this number is still growing. According to the site's operator, the members are mostly from Manila, Cebu, and Davao.

This website works as a traditional dating platform. PinaLove will take you to the members you are seeking. Simply fill out the form and answer their questions about who you are looking for, and you’re ready to go.

After a careful review of the site, we found out that there are a lot of active members. They are enthusiastic in sending you messages and also quick in giving replies.

However, we can't help but be curious about these members. You see, even PinaLove reminds its users, "Only give contact details to other members after you have talked to them for a while and are comfortable doing so.”  

So, as dedicated reviewers of dating sites, we dug deeper to find out more about PinaLove.

  • You get a personal profile which you can fill out
  • Over 1 million members worldwide
  • 3,300 members are active every day
  • Male users are mostly from the US and the United Kingdom
  • Specific target groups are Filipino women and international men
  • PinaLove members also include ladyboys

PinaLove is a dating site platform that caters to a majority of Filipino girls, ladyboys, and foreign men. And every time you want to switch your preference, you can do so by resetting the tabs provided at the top. Every profile photo is also equipped with the user’s name, age, and location. So, it is more convenient for you to identify the ones you want to meet.

Members here are 70% male. Sources say that one-third of the users are between 25 to 34 years old. And the rest are concentrated on the ages 18 to 24, and 35 to 44.

This dating site has a growing number of members. Research says that the frequent visitors are from the United States with 290,000 members, the United Kingdom with 130,000 members, the Philippines with 90,000 members, Australia with 70,000 members, and Germany with 60,000 members.

Though we found members who are looking for someone to marry, it seems that more users prefer hook-ups. We had several instances wherein they will say it outright that they want to have sex.  

PinaLove claims that they are a dating site for Filipina women. And we thought at first that this is a dating site for men and women. But, as you might have already guessed, there are also ladyboys and a lot of them are active on this dating site. We might have been misled as we began using this website. Nonetheless, it is safe to keep in mind that PinaLove also accommodates ladyboys.

Making Contact

PinaLove Contact
  • Send free message every ten minutes
  • Tap the heart button on a member’s profile if you are interested in him/her
  • Tap the star button if you want to include someone in your ‘favourites’ list
  • Narrow down your search pool by adjusting the top search filters
  • Live Chat is available for premium subscribers
  • Sending 1 message is free every 10 minutes, send like, and add to favourites

You can scan along many pages of profiles, and if a photo catches your attention, you can show your interest by tapping the heart button on the photo. You can also add members to your favourites list by tapping the star button. You can enjoy live chat with the premium membership.

When you want to start a conversation, click on the member's profile photo and send him or her a message. PinaLove notifies you when your message has been read. You can send a reply to incoming messages once every 10 minutes for free. 

Though conversations might be slow, we tested the site and received about 300 messages in just a week. We saw a number of profiles that contain minimal information and zero uploaded photos. These profiles were checked after receiving multiple messages. Some of their messages directly ask about our exact location and phone number. What is more alarming is that, according to research, there are users who ask for money. They do this almost immediately at the start of the conversation.

It’s a good thing that PinaLove reminds its users that when conversations turn into malicious and inappropriate messages, you can easily make a report by clicking the button that is located beside the messages. Hence, if what the reports say is true, you still have this security measure to keep your online dating experience safe.

Real Life Review

"I joined PinaLove because I wanted to meet a Filipina. When I got in, the home page was full of photos. A few minutes later, it got exciting as messages started flooding my inbox. I wanted to reply to each one of them, but I was limited to one message every 10 minutes. That didn’t stop me, though. The members were responsive, and they even gave me their personal mobile numbers. I think I might upgrade to premium and try to get more experience."  - Alex, 27

Design and Usability

On one side, looking through PinaLove's home page is quite unappealing. Profile photos can crowd the page too much. The pictures are too tight that they can overlap. Chances are, a member's profile will get less probability of getting noticed. This can be a let-down for millennial users.

On the other hand, looking through PinaLove's home page is as convenient as how you want to communicate with the other members quickly. The platform is uncomplicated as the tabs to set your preferences are provided at the top. For example, if you want to meet members from Cebu then just change the location tab to 'Cebu'.

If you go to the homepage, you will also see the members who are online. The newest members are highlighted as well.
