FilipinoKisses.com is one of the wilder Filipino dating sites in this category. Far from being shy, it aims to hook you up with some of the most exciting males, females and ladyboys from the Philippines and across the world. You'll find thousands of members to choose from and a range of ways to get in touch. However, it's one of the more expensive sites in this category and doesn't really give you too much more than some of the cheaper sites in terms of features.
Whilst FilipinoKisses.com attracts a lot more web traffic than the sites below it in our top 10, it doesn't really stand out any more than its competitors at first glance. The layout of the site is somewhat uninspiring and could do with an overhaul to freshen it up. That said, it has a relatively large membership base and plenty of online activity, meaning that you stand a fair chance of getting matched with other members. Whether you're looking for a penpal, friendship, online chat or romance or a relationship, FilipinoKisses.com caters to all these interests. In addition to featuring males and females it's the first site in our top 10 countdown where ladyboys are openly welcomed.
If you're not a member and just taking a look round the site, bear in mind that the profiles you can see are previews with just basic information and main profile photo. Once registered, you get access to full profiles and all profile photos. If you upgrade your membership you also get access to HQ photos. Unlike a lot of other sites in this category, you'll see more erotic and sexually suggestive photos, especially on profiles posted by ladyboy members. Whilst they're not too graphic, gentle souls who are easily offended, take heed. Conversely, if you like your dating a little spicy then look no further. Profile content includes the usual personal details, interests and self-written, 'all about me' sections.
It's free to sign up and create a profile, though do bear in mind that, not only will you need a valid email address, but also a copy of your passport or identity card that has to be scanned and submitted before your registration is complete. In addition, you also need to submit a photo of yourself holding a piece of paper with your email address handwritten. Whilst this rigmarole is something of a pain, it's worthwhile and helps to keep fake profiles and potential scams to an absolute minimum.
From a member profile you can get in touch by sending an email message (which only that member can read), an automated icebreaker message to express interest in other members and initiate contact or plug in your webcam and visit one of the chat rooms. If you don't have a webcam it's no problem as you can also text chat; other members just won't get to see you. You can also create a list of your favorite profiles to quickly refer back to if and when you need to. There aren't too many surprises here and such features are the mainstay of nearly all the sites reviewed in this category.
This brings us on neatly to membership subscriptions. Whilst you can choose from a range of subscription packages, they're all quite expensive (see above for prices). Despite receiving a discount for longer-term membership, it's difficult to see how such prices can be justified when the site doesn't really offer much in terms of original features. If there's a reason for shelling out your hard-earned dough, it's the large membership base and more audible buzz of online activity. Whilst it's not easy to find the figures, you'll find more online activity here than on competing sites such as ChristianFilipino.com. Incidentally, female members can send messages for free. Having said this, the search options at your disposal are fairly extensive and will help you in your browsing, whether you're more or less specific (see above). In terms of help and guidance, you won't find much (not even a cursory FAQs page) but there's email support and live chat support if you have Skype installed on your computer.
FilipinoKisses.com is a great dating site with plenty of members and a discernible online buzz. However, given the subscription costs, it doesn't really stand out amongst its competitors and needs to incorporate some novel features to justify its price tag. However, if you're looking for racier dating with an edge, this may be the place for you.
