Technology is changing everything including how we date (wink). Is it not convenient that you can meet new people without leaving your room? All the better with the COVID situation. As a reserved and shy person, I love the idea of online dating and dating apps.

Online dating has become popular and so is the rise of dating apps. We have tested dozens of websites and apps and finally came up with the top ten dating apps that can help you find true love in Asia.
