In 2009, Pinaywife became a full-time business with a staff of 3 people, Jones, his wife Jing, and a programmer. They ran the site independently until 2010, when Jones hired other employees at his new office in Tagbilaran, Bohol, in the Philippines. The hard work soon paid off and in 2011, Pinaywife was awarded the Best Asian Dating award by the Internet Forum.
