I felt like I had beginner's luck with DIA but then it stopped being interesting.  I met a really cool and ridiculously attractive young girl who picked me up at the airport and spent four days with me after minimal conversations. Just a fantastic time. Really liked her -- she was classy and smart and funny and rail thin, and a little hyper -- not at all one of the low-class moneygrubbers that we all detest -- but once her school started up she basically vanished.

But since then haven't met Miss Right on there. 

I am still fairly new to this, but it seems to me the best way to speak with a girl is to cut her over to Facebook and then study fairly carefully what's going on: ... does she have lots of white male "friends"? … does she have multiple FB accounts (be sure to type in her name backward; they seem to do that a lot for a 2nd account)?  … in her recent photos, is there evidence of a boyfriend? 

Skype and WhatsApp aren't nearly as useful in that regard.  I feel it's very important to establish a context for anyone you're halfway interested in spending time with.

There's just so much odd behavior on all of these online filipina sites.  If a girl isn't straightforward or something seems a little off, it's practically certain that it _is_ off.

Still, DIA is a free service, so there's no reason not to check it out.  I read about people getting banned from the site willy-nilly but I'd imagine you have to do something pretty uncool to get banned.

(One question I have: what's DIA's business model?  How do they make money?)

You say she just vanished, maybe next time you travel you might meet her at the airport picking up someone else.

Could be.  Easy come, easy go!  I think the most important ingredient with any of this stuff is keeping a positive attitude -- no way to figure out all the backstories and such

Agree about FB over skype.

Yeah one thing that is clearly the case with many filipinas of all ages, from the instant you meet them they assume this role of domesticity and it's hard to believe that someone you've known for an hour isn't someone you've known for years!  It's not hard to believe that one could pick you up at the airport and fool your brain into thinking you've been dating for months!

If you are already here in Cebu, why would you even bother with online dating services? There are literally thousands of girls out there waiting to meet you. Just start talking with girls that interest you. If you can't figure out how to do that, start by going shopping, and talk with the cute shop girls. There are almost always more shop girls than they need, and you can have her show you something to make the conversation legit. If there is a spark, then have her put her phone number on your phone. If she is interested in you, she will. Then you can talk (or more) with her when she isn't working. If she won't give you her phone number, then it is time to move on anyway.

The point is, why talk remotely when there are plenty of girls who will talk with you in person? DIA is full of scammers, as are many of the online dating sites. At least by meeting in person, you are able to get visual cues along with the conversation to help weed out potential trouble.

Yah.... and you know she's works.

Why? Because rather than go  through a long convoluted and tedious process of questions and answers I can instantly find out her age her education if she has kids if she has a career if shes employed etc .  etc etc

And of course none of that is lie, right?

Just as in the rest of life you use whatever means is available to you to find out information . Of course its up to you to do your due diligence.    If you are looking for guarantees I suggest you stick with death and taxes  ! hehe

She could certainly lie to your face but it's easier to tell that then if you just look at a profile online.

4 reasons

1st - very few 35 / 45 year old sales ladies or others you come in contact with without simply walking up to them on street and saying 'hello' - the friend / relative of a friend route leads to hard feelings if it doesn't work out.

2nd  - receive responses from those that are interested in meeting you - yeah scammers but in that age bracket not the same % as 18 / 25 yr olds who have multiple BFs

3rd - saves time / money

4th - being shy - them and you

I met my current girlfriend / fiancé on Dia. I had met my ex-wife on the cherry blossoms website 10 years ago and brought her to the US on a fiancé visa. The difference in the two is night and day. The first was very materialistic, this one is easy going, not showy.
