Editor's Summary


Launched in 1995, Cherry Blossoms or simply known as Blossoms.com is the first online dating website in Asia. While the overall design of the website is relatively old as opposed to modern dating sites, Blossoms.com more than makes up for its losses by providing users with an easy-to-navigate user interface. Primarily, it caters to foreign individuals who are looking to meet Filipinas for dating, marriage, or even a casual one-night stand. In addition, it also features an advanced search button wherein users can choose to personalize their matches based on their preferences. Communication on the website is normally initiated via instant messaging, but, however, it is worth noting that free users are not able to access such features. Instead, free users can only create a profile, get personalized matches, view other members' profiles, send smiles and upload approximately 12 photos. On top of everything else, Blossoms.com will also help you get a Visa when you connect with someone from a different country, thus, making it easier to continue your relationship.


Sign-Up and Login Process


Signing up to Blossoms.com can be done without breaking a sweat. Users will just need to fill up a form that will ask for their date of birth, gender, location, marital status, race, employment, and physical traits. It is also most ideal to use a valid email address for a smooth-sailing registration process.


Members/Interactions


Member interaction can be completed through instant messaging, email, and video calls. Alternatively, users can also view other members’ profiles or even send smiles to get noticed by someone.
