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
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.
How to choose an Asian dating site
Asian dating can be complicated. There’s no simple answer to the type of people you might find on a dating site for Asians: the community is so diverse in nationality, religion and cultural outlook that almost any attempt at defining it leads to stereotypes.
And there can be a major difference in social and cultural attitudes between Asian singles whose families have been in Australia for generations and those who are first-generation. But you may well find people who share your religious views (or lack of them), or share a love of certain food cultures. Or you might wish to date Asian singles for any number of other reasons. There’s really nothing wrong with wanting to date someone who shares your values, or religious faith. But there are good arguments to favour some Australian Asian dating sites and apps over others.
