One of the best ways to meet women in a new country is through online dating. Instead of going to loud nightclubs or being set up on a blind date, it’s much simpler to filter through thousands of dating profiles.
The problem is finding the best online dating sites for expats and nomads. Instead of getting stuck with gold-diggers or other scam-artists, you want to choose quality, but popular websites. Fortunately, there are plenty out there.
5 of the Best Online Dating Sites for Expats and World Travelers
Here are a few sites I highly reccomend. They are split between paid and unpaid options:
The Cupid Media sites are a great set of websites that feature websites in many different countries. For example, there are sites like ‘Colombian Cupid’ or ‘Russian Cupid’ that cater to finding women in a specific country. There are also sites like Latin American Cupid and International Cupid which feature women from many different countries. (https://www.internationalcupid.com/)
If you’re going to be heading to a specific country and will be there for at least several months then the Cupid sites are a must use.
Match.com is a popular dating site used in many countries. It is geared towards relationships, and not hookups (though that is certainly possible). If you’re looking to settle down with a girl, Match is a great way to go.
Seeking Arrangement is a unique site. It is not designed for relationships or hookups. Rather, it is for men who want to be “sugar daddies” who are willing to provide financial compensation for girls who will date them. Yes, it’s certainly a unique site for meeting women. And it’s definitely not for everybody. However, if you have money you’re willing to part with you can sleep with some incredibly beautiful and sexy women. They’ll also give you companionship, just be aware that they’re doing it for the money.
Tinder has become ubiquitous around the globe. It’s an amazing dating app that allows you to quickly filter out women who aren’t attractive. It also lends itself to casual relationships so there’s little pressure in going the formal dating route.
Tinder is an absolute must-use wherever you go as there are plenty of attractive women using it nearly any city around the world. Plus, using it from city to city you don’t need to set up a new profile for every different country.
I recommend getting Tinder premium. It’s a paid service with a few awesome features. For example, you can set your location to anywhere in the world and meet girls weeks before traveling to a certain city. It also features you more prominently when women are swiping through profiles, meaning you will get more matches.
Badoo is another popular dating site. It’s a more traditional dating site, not that it’s for relationships, but because it is based around building a profile complete with pictures and descriptions, and then searching through different profiles and sending messages. Badoo isn’t popular in every country, particularly Western countries, but it is common in many Eastern European countries.
Paid vs. Unpaid Websites
In your online dating journey, you’re going to have to decide whether you want to go the paid route. I’d always recommend starting with an unpaid app, particularly Tinder. Chatting with these girls will give you an idea of what the local girls are like. You can gauge their personalities, interests, chastity and more.
If you’re looking for a relationship, and find too many girls are just there for hookups, then a paid route may be a good option.
Perhaps the biggest reason to join a paid site is to meet women who are genuinely interested in meeting expats and aren’t there to waste your time. On Tinder and Badoo, girls are investing very little into meeting men, doing little more than swiping. On a Cupid site, girls are paying to join are truly want to meet a man.
What to Avoid
A red-flag for any dating site is if it features “brides”. Even if you’re looking to get married, a bridal agency is not the way to go. These agencies are often run by shady characters. The women are looking for a visa or passport more than they are for love. While the concept fascinates me, I’d recommend going the traditional dating route. There are plenty of women looking to get married on Match.com
