Asian Dating in Australia: How to cultivate meaningful connections

by eharmony Editorial Team March 7, 2024

If you’re an Asian single who wants to find someone who shares your ethnicity and cultural background, eharmony is your ideal starting point. Whether you seek an array of Asian dating possibilities or hope to connect with someone who shares your interests, we streamline the process. Our dating is designed for people of all backgrounds and we’re committed to creating lasting, meaningful relationships.

Asian dating Australia – the basics

Before we start talking about dating sites for Asians, it’s worth asking what we mean by the term in an Australian context. Although the Australian census doesn’t directly collect data on race, it does ask citizens to give information on their ancestry. And in the last census in 2016, just over 16% of respondents reported their ancestry as Asian, a significant chunk of the population.1

Asian Demographic in Australia

But terms like ‘Asian Australian’ cover a multitude of backgrounds, ethnicities and religions. In 2019 it was estimated that the Chinese community in Australia numbered over 1.2m, twice as many as the next-largest Asian group, which was those of Indian descent. Other significant minorities of Asian Australians trace their ancestry to the Phillipines, Vietnam, Malaysia and Korea, all contributing to Australia’s rich cultural melting pot.

Asian-born Australians are younger and tend to stay in education longer than other Australians. In 2016, the Asian-born population in Australia had a median age of 35 years, whereas people born in Europe had a median age of 59 years.

How do I find Asian singles near me?

Most significant Asian communities in Australia are, unsurprisingly, based in or near the biggest cities. The largest community is in Sydney, with roughly 28% of Australian’s Asian population there, but those seeking Asian dating Melbourne (24%), in Perth (18%), Brisbane or Adelaide will also find major population centres.

To find Asian singles near you, use the power of online dating sites or apps. Start by exploring reputable Asian dating apps or websites that cater to your geographical location. Many Asian dating services allow you to set preferences, narrowing your search to local matches. You could also attend cultural events, festivals, or gatherings within your community where you’re likely to meet Asian singles who share your interests. Additionally, consider joining social groups or clubs that focus on Asian culture, providing opportunities to connect.

Not only an Asian dating site: Matches based on compatibility

When looking for an Asian dating site or app, you’ll find endless possibilities. But there’s a whole lot of reasons to start your journey on eharmony. We know Asian dating is all about finding your perfect match and lots of Asian singles use dating apps to find a partner who shares their cultural background.

Our objective is to cultivate long-term, committed relationships through matchmaking tailored to individual preferences and values.

So if you want an Asian dating experience that will help you meet genuine Asian singles who want a lasting relationship based on equality and respect, then read on.
