Though at the very first glance, it may seem that EasternHoneys is just another site for meeting Asian mail-order brides, it’s not exactly true. That’s rather a platform for intercultural communication for Asians and Westerners where everyone can find what they want. Versatility is supposed to be its main benefit. 

But does that concept work? I decided to find out, so I joined the site and shared all my findings in this EasternHoneys review.

EasternHoneys overview in 1 minute

  • One of the oldest sites created exclusively for Asians and Westerners
  • Mostly positioned as a versatile dating website but also works as a social networking site
  • Though EasternHoneys may work great for those who are seeking communication and friendships, the vast majority of members are seeking romantic relationships 
  • Search, access to profiles and public photos, winks, likes, and favorites are free and unlimited
  • A member pays only for actual conversations with others regardless of the tool chosen
  • Credits are used as virtual currency, and the policy is transparent—you can see all the prices on the Credit page before you start spending money
  • All new members get a welcome bonus (20 free credits) to test the service without spending real money

How much does EasternHoneys cost?

Currently, every registered member can choose among 5 credit packages: 

  • 20 credits — £2.30 for all new members, £7.90 for regular members
  • 50 credits — £15.80
  • 125 credits — £35.50

Again, you don’t have to buy one of them immediately after you set up an account. Once you join the community, the first notification you will see will be the notification about 20 complimentary credits sent to your account.

Also, newcomers are able to get 20 credits more at a $7 discount.

Free and paid services on EasternHoneys 

So, on EasternHoneys, a feature can be paid or free. Which services can one use without spending credits? I made a list, so take a look. 

Free services

  • Setting up and upgrading an account. I’m not talking about some special profile boosts. But every member will be able to join the community for free and create a competitive profile without spending a single credit.
  • Access to profiles. It’s free and unlimited for everyone. You will be able to see all the profiles and all the public photos (access to private albums and profile videos is limited for standard users). 
  • Search & following others. You can use search filters, swipe profiles, follow anyone, and see all members’ posts without any restrictions. 
  • Winks, likes, and lists of Favorites. There are also free ways to let others know you might be interested in communicating with them. You can send likes or winks to EasternHoneys members and create your lists of Favorites (users will be notified about that). 

Paid services

  • Live chat and Mails. Do you prefer instant messaging or long and meaningful letters? In any case, EasternHoneys has got you covered. 
  • Exchange of media files. Regardless of the main communication tool you prefer to use, you’ll be able to send audio and video files, as well as photos. 
  • Gifts. There’s a good collection of virtual gifts, and an online gift store (with gift delivery services) is expected to be launched soon.

As you can see, though there are quite many free services, the best features are still paid features. This, however, is quite a common policy for companies working in this segment of the online dating market. 

How does EasternHoneys work?

Is Easternhoneys legit? Yes, it is. There are quite many good features to use to find a perfect match, get to know someone better, or build an emotional connection. All in all, the entire process of using the platform for this purpose is always divided into a few main stages: 

Setting up an account and making it work
The procedure itself is rather simple—you find the registration form, share basic details like your email (which will also be your EasternHoneys login), name, and age, and then proceed to a quiz. But the answers you give are important. Moreover, you can’t always come up with great ideas when creating a dating profile, so there’s an opportunity to add or change something at any time on your profile settings. The more photos you have, the more details you share, and the more interesting your bio is, the easier it is to withstand the competition on EasterHoneys.com.
Finding similar-minded members
As I’ve noted previously, there are quite many ways to meet new people on the site and learn more about every one of them. Profiles are quite detailed, there are basic search filters to apply, and you can use the People swiping feature or just see posts on the Feed and follow the people you like most.
Getting to know your matches better
There are quite many ways to contact others. You can start a chat, use the Say Hello feature to send a standard greeting message (it will be cheaper than sending a Mail or using a messenger to send an original message), send a long letter, attach photos and videos, choose custom stickers or emojis, send a virtual gift, and more.

Basically, the rest is up to you. Considering that most still use the site to find love rather than simply chat with someone interesting, most long-distance partners prefer to schedule a date in real life. That’s the next step. 

EasternHoneys profile examples

Just like any other dating site, the site has mixed feedback. You may find some negative EasternHoneys reviews about the prices or heartbreaking experiences, but you’ll hardly find any complaints about profile quality, which, for instance, apps like Tinder have. 

That’s explained by the simple fact that nearly 90% of profiles on the site are detailed. Basically, most look like this one.

Still, I must admit that not all members have profile videos. Most prefer to share posts on the site just like this member, though, and nearly all users have detailed bios, so you’re likely to learn enough about the user anyway. 

Summary from Mari Kovanen

Mari Kovanen

So, who is EasternHoneys for? Well, it’s quite a versatile platform, and a lot will depend on the user. For example, you can use it to find a friend, a partner to have a short-term affair with somewhere in Vietnam on your vacation or business trip, or a long-term relationship. The platform isn’t promoted as a site to meet Chinese brides or Filipino brides, but it has enough features to deliver this kind of experience. 


Still, I’d recommend everyone consider that the prices aren’t that low and that you’ll need to develop your own strategy on EasternHoneys and control your spending. If it doesn’t bother you, and if you think that the site may help you meet your goal whatever it is, just set up an account, claim your welcome bonus, and give it a try.
