How the Asian Single Solution Dating Site Works
Asian Single Solution matches you up with profiles based on your behavioural activity. It gets updated every day with people that the site feels you would be a good match with. You can also have a browse of profiles on the normal search page too.
To sign up, you enter some basic details -- like your name, location, preferred username and mobile number. Then you need to specify details about your religion and add a short write up about who you are, what you’re looking for and a bit about your job. Remember -- this is a site for professionals, so your job is important on Asian Single Solution. You can then upload a photo.
After you’ve done all the essential bits, there’s quite an extensive section about your appearance and likes and dislikes, but you can skip it and come back to it. The final step is to fill out a questionnaire about the sort of person you’re after.
Ease of use
The site is so clean and simple, it’s a breeze to get used to. There are clear icons that direct you to each section of the site, and everyone’s profile is clear and easy to read.
Making contact, messaging & notifications
Free members have to pay for credits to be able to send messages. You can send a credit with each message to ensure the recipient can read and reply for free, whatever their membership status. Premium and Premium Plus members can send unlimited members for free.
Profiles are great on Asian Single Solutions. All have clear profile pictures (it helps that many professionals will have a professional photo for career purposes) and there’s loads of info on their page to sink your teeth into. It’s a great way to get a gauge on what someone’s like and wants.
Asian Single Solution App overview

Is Asian Single Solution a good dating website?
Asian Single Solution is a great website. It’s a brilliant community for British professional Asians to meet potential matches -- either for friendship or dating. Working professionals don’t often get a lot of time to use dating sites, let alone searching through a sea of profiles, so the behavioural matching tool saves a lot of time and seems to open up the opportunity to see profiles you may not have found on your searches.
It is a little bit expensive, but compared to other dating sites it’s definitely not unreasonable. However the thing we like best are the events, where you can get out and meet people in a safe environment. This make membership a worthy investment.

What is the private notes feature on Asian Single Solution?
The Private Notes feature allows you to write down anything interesting or important that you would like to remember about other members. For example, someone might have asked you to contact them at a later date or shared something with you that you would like to remember.
All you need to do is type what you want and click save. Once you’ve created a note, you’ll notice a ‘Private Notes’ button appear on each profile you used the feature for. You can see this in the search results. You will also be able to run a search based on people you have made notes about.
The note is private and therefore the other person will have no idea you wrote anything about them. It’s for your eyes only!
How does the live chat feature work?
To use the live chat feature you must be a Premium member. The feature allows you to chat with other Premium members. If you are a Premium Plus member, you are able to invite anyone (including basic members) to chat with you.
With this feature you can see who is online from the profile view once logged in. You are allowed to have up to two sessions running at the same time.
What is the dress code for Asian Single Solution events?
When attending one of the events, you are encouraged to dress to impress. You may want to wear a nice shirt or dress. It is recommended not to wear blue jeans or trainers.
The Asian Single Solution parties are aimed at professionals and that is why they are a little stricter with the dress code. You are likely to have more success if you wear a suit or a dress! Remember you are advertising yourself and people are looking to make a quick judgement on a potential match.
How will payments appear on bank statements?
Payments appear on your bank statements under ‘TSS Events’ and this stands for ‘The Single Solution Events’. This will be stated in all email receipts and also on the payment pages.
