Blossoms.com is one of the best Filipino online dating sites out there on the web, just pipped to the number one spot by FilipinoCupid.com. You'll find a tremendous range of features to help you meet women all over the Philippines and beyond, a massive membership base and some great subscription deals so there's much to commend it. However, we also found it to be a little cluttered and not always as easy to navigate as some other sites.
If you're looking to meet beautiful women from the Philippines then you'd have to go a long way to beat Blossoms.com. It's free to join and only takes a couple of minutes to register, then you're free to browse. It's not the most prepossessing site at first glance and it takes a while to find your way round. There are lots of features crammed into the site and this can make the experience slightly claustrophobic; a more logical layout would improve the site significantly. Once you become accustomed to the layout, you'll be impressed by the range of features at your disposal.
There's a huge membership base to browse. At the time of this review there were 75,519 active profiles. Whilst 'active' isn't defined, most of the profiles we checked had been accessed by members within the last month. There were 667 members online at the time of the review, which was late in the evening local time (Philippines). Profiles are very detailed and suffer the same problem as in other parts of the site of feeling a little too cluttered. Thumbnail photo quality is a little poor, but clicking on a photo increases the size and quality dramatically. On some profiles you'll see extra-large photos (exceeding 200mb). It's possible to rate member photos and multiple photos had been uploaded to all of the profiles we checked out.
From a member's profile page it's possible to interact in a number of ways. For example, a 'smile' can be sent to express interest and break the ice. It's also possible to send messages by email. To chat online in real time there are a couple of options available; the public chat room exposes you to hundreds of other members in one place. Conversely, you can request to chat online 1-1 using the Cherry Messenger. There's also the option to record and send a video message, create a favorites list or invite others to be your friend, build a social network and share news, activities and online friendship.
A number of search tools are at your disposal to help your browsing (see above). The basic search is useful when wanting to search quickly and specifying only basic criteria. For those who want something a little more specific, the advanced search tool extends the range of criteria and allows you to return only profiles with photos, specify the last login date (to screen out inactive profiles) or list only the newest members. For even faster results, a range of one-click tab searches are also at your disposal. These include active members (active within last month), newest members (joined within the last 48 hours), members online now, members who've viewed you, your matches, members who've invited you to chat and those you've invited to chat. You can also save and retrieve your searches at the click of a tab. You'll also receive daily emails listing compatible matches based upon your profile details and preferences. In terms of other features, for those contemplating traveling to the Philippines to meet someone special, you'll find plenty of information about visas, immigration and the practicalities of traveling to or living in the Philippines.
If you agree that Blossoms.com is a great site and decide to upgrade, you can receive substantial discounts by signing up for the longer term; for example, if you sign up for 12 months expect a 67% discount based upon the regular monthly fee. Even if you'd rather not make such a commitment and decide to renew on a monthly basis, after the first month the subscription fee is discounted by 33%. In short, you'd be crazy not to take advantage of these offers. In case you require any further help or information, there's a detailed FAQs section, lots of technical information and troubleshooting guidance, as well as email and telephone support and postal assistance.
Blossoms.com has more or less everything you'd want from an online dating site; great features, lots of beautiful members, substantial discounts and more. The only downside is that it's not the easiest to use or navigate, which is why it misses out on the number one spot. However, you're bound to be impressed and if you're serious about finding someone special then take a look today.
