When it comes to online dating in Vietnam, there’s really only one true option. VietnamCupid is the country’s largest dating site, with thousands of beautiful women who are dying to meet an adventurer like you.
Although the site is great, and Vietnamese women are very friendly and easy to get along with, there are a few things you can do to improve your online dating success. These simple tips will get you more responses, more phone numbers, and more dates.
In this article you’ll learn exactly how to meet women on VietnamCupid. I’ll walk you through the process from start to finish so that you’ll be able to start messaging girls right away.
Building Your Profile
(Getting Started Is Easy)
In online dating everything starts with your profile. Make a good profile and you’ll have an easy time meeting women. Do a bad job and it’s near impossible to get a single response.
Fortunately, making a good profile is easy.
It all comes down to two things, your profile description and your profile picture. If you can get both right, you’re going to get plenty of replies.
What you write about yourself is simple. You want to paint yourself as a good guy who likes some adventure and is easy to get along with. As a result, write your profile description like this:
“Fun and adventurous guy looking to meet new people and make new friends.”
It’s short, sweet, and showcases you in a positive light. You can add more to your description, but keep the whole thing under 100 words. You want girls to learn about you through your conversations with them, not from reading your life’s story online.
(Any Profile Picture Of Yourself Is Better Than No Picture At All)
When it comes to choosing a profile picture, you’ll see a lot of ‘dating gurus’ spout off advice like “Get three pics with yourself and friends, two of you rock climbing, and seven of you posing at national landmarks.”
This is pure nonsense. While having a lot of good, high-quality pictures can certainly help you, any picture is better than no image at all. Girls want to know who they’re talking to, so simply throw up at least one photo of yourself.
If you’re stumped for picture ideas, here are a few suggestions:
- Go to the park and take a photo with you standing near some trees
- Find a nice backdrop in your town (like a statue or mural) and take a selfie in front of it
- Get a friend to photograph you doing an “action hobby” (like fishing or golfing)
- Visit the zoo and get your picture taken near the elephant exhibit
To show how simple this is, I used one quickly snapped selfie that I took on my balcony. Even with that sh*tty pic, I was able to get responses from almost every single girl I messaged.
This is because women can see who they are responding to and it makes the conversation more comfortable for them. As long as you have at least one picture of yourself you’ll have girls messaging you back.
How To Meet Women On VietnamCupid
(Pick Up A Vietnamese Phrase Book And Learn Some Local Greetings)
Now that you have your profile finished, start browsing the site and looking for any girls you like. Whenever you see one, send her a message.
The easiest (from my experience) opening message that you can send is this one: “Xin chao! How are you?”
“Xin chao” is Vietnamese for “hello,” and a lot of girls will be very impressed that you know some of their local language.
If you want to learn more Vietnamese greetings, or want to pick up some extra phrases, I’d highly suggest getting a copy of Instant Vietnamese. It has tons of useful information, from asking how someone is doing to inviting somebody to get a drink with you.
The key to writing a great first message is to be friendly, show that you are interested in the girl, and get the conversation rolling. It’s not rocket science, it just needs to get some sort of response.
Once the girl has replied, keep the conversation going for 3 – 5 more messages (ask her if she has any brother and sisters, or a pet) before asking for her number.
(A Good Profile And Good “Opener” Will Always Get Replies)
By chatting for a few messages you should have built up some level of comfort between you and the woman. If she wasn’t attracted to you she wouldn’t have kept messaging you, right? Now it’s time to step things up a notch and ask for her phone number.
Going for the number is something that lots of guys get super nervous about. In fact, there are hundreds of books and blogs that focus extensively on teaching men how to do this. Realistically, asking for a girl’s phone number is insanely easy.
Here’s all you need to do for this message:
Hey, let’s switch over to texting. What’s your number?
This is a message I’ve used countless times and it has never failed. This is because the girl is already interested in you so she’s more than willing to share her number.
The next time you’re talking to a girl, give this message a try. It’s surprisingly effective.
The Next Step
(Once You Have The Girl’s Number, Set-Up Your Date)
After you’ve started texting a girl, you’ll want to invite her on a date. A good way to do this is to simply find out what she likes (drinking coffee, going out to eat, etc…) and suggesting you do that activity together.
This is pretty straightforward and, lucky for you, Vietnam has tons of cool and inexpensive places for you to go on a date. It’s very easy to find someplace fun and have a wonderful time, all without having to break the bank or even leave your neighborhood.
Now that you know how to meet women on VietnamCupid you can start your dating adventures and begin chatting with all the local hotties. It’s fun, easy to do, and can land you a date in no time at all.
