At first glance, LoverWhirl seems to be another site to meet Asian mail-order brides, but once you take a closer look at it, you see it’s rather a versatile platform for cross-cultural communication, which is mostly used as an Asian dating site. 

I decided to find out what this quite an interesting website has to offer, so I created an account and started contacting members. What were the results? I’ll tell you everything in this Loverwhirl review.

How much does LoverWhirl cost?

So, as I’ve noted previously, you can’t just buy a plan for a month on LoverWhirl.com. You’ll be offered to buy credits instead, and the prices will be as follows:

  • 20 credits — £2.30 for new members, £7.90 for everyone else
  • 50 credits — £15.80
  • 125 credits — £35.50
  • 250 credits — £55.30
  • 750 credits — £118.50

The more credits you buy at a time, the cheaper they get. Also, you don’t have to make a purchase right after you create a profile. There’s a welcome bonus of 20 free credits that can be spent on any premium feature, for example, instant messaging.

Free and premium services on LoverWhirl

Let’s say you’re going to use the LoverWhirl dating site. What are you going to pay for and what will be free for you? I made the lists, to take a look.  

Free features

  • Personality quiz, profile upgrade. When you sign up for the site, you take a quiz, and part of that information will be shown in your profile. You can also write a bio and add as many photos as you want to. There’ll be no charges for creating a competitive profile. 
  • Basic search, swiping feature, followers. Both free and premium users can access any profile on the site, apply any search filters, swipe unlimited profiles, and match with an unlimited number of members. 
  • Winks, likes, favorites. There are ways to contact others for free. For example, you can send unlimited likes or winks. Also, you can add unlimited profiles to your favorites. 
  • Support services. There’s no priority support or anything like that. All members regardless of their status can get help from the support team in the shortest terms.

Premium features

  • Live chat & Mails. Basically, you can choose between instant messaging or the Mail service or switch between these two features. 
  • Exchange of media files & access to videos. You’ll be charged some extra credits if you open an introductory video on someone’s profile. Also, you’ll need to spend some money on sending a media file (a photo, video, or an audio file). 
  • Gifts. Members can exchange virtual gifts, and a real gift store is expected to be launched soon.

This is quite a good selection of services, but it’s still not enough to say whether the site is effective enough, so I analyzed other important aspects and features below. 

How does LoverWhirl work?

If you were looking for LoverWhirl reviews to understand how the entire system works, read this section carefully. I’m going to focus on three main processes for every member and ways to customize them to have the best experience possible. 

Creating a profile that will actually work
The first stage is rather simple. You provide basic details like your name, email, and address and get your LoverWhirl login and password. However, the process doesn’t end there. There’s also a quiz, and I’d recommend thinking carefully about the answers. Some of them will be shown on your profile, and some will be used by the system itself to suggest matches to you. Also, you’ll be asked to write a bio and add photos. You can tell others anything, in particular, to indicate your purpose of using the site, which will potentially narrow the search down to your most compatible partners.
Meeting others
Let’s say you now have a profile that tells a lot about you. Now you are ready to search for your top matches, and there are multiple ways to do it. You can sort profiles by certain criteria, apply basic search filters, use the People feature and swipe members right or left, see posts on the feed, and more.
Communicating with others
This is not one of the sites where you can make calls or something, but you shouldn’t underestimate the variety of features. There are multiple ways to start a conversation: by sending a like, wink, message on Chat, long Mail, virtual gift, etc. There are also ways to make your communication more fun and build deeper emotional connections, for example, by exchanging video files, photos, and audio messages regularly.

That’s what LoverWhirl is actually about. Though there are a lot of features, the system itself is rather simple, and a user can customize their strategy to meet their specific goal. 

LoverWhril profile examples

The quality of profiles is one of the most important criteria to analyze when reviewing any website. When I joined the LoverWhril community, I started browsing pages to see what profiles on the site look like. There were more detailed and less detailed pages, but I couldn’t find any low-effort accounts. 

Here’s what a good profile on the site looks like.

Of course, not all the members have such detailed bios and that many photos along with videos, but the vast majority of users have at least profile headlines, 5 public photos, and some posts. 

Summary from Mari Kovanen

Mari Kovanen

So, is LoverWhirl legit? Yes, it is. But I’d like to stress that it’s still not just a site where one can meet Chinese brides or Filipino brides, or find a mail-order wife from Thailand. It’s a platform where a user decides which format of service to use. It may be a site for chatting with Asian friends, a site to find true love, or a site to find someone to spend your vacation in Asia with. Still, it’s not a free site. That’s why I’d recommend everyone weigh all the pros and cons, consider their priorities, and then make a final choice to use or not to use LoveWhirl.
