Best russian apps to meet new friends and singles: TOP 6 rating

Top five dating apps  and sites list in Russia includes 5 ones. In this article is presented my review about 6 most interesting, such as:

  •     YoooLove    
  •     Russiancupid.com    
  •     Loveplanet.ru    
  •     Mamba.ru
  •     Badoo
  •     Dating.ru   

     The dating apps, listed above, is not everything. Also, there is Tinder with it's huge popularity. Those who open it up open in a big city, will for sure find a lot of interesting members, who want to make new connections. Modern life is rather busy and such sites help to find person who you need to make relations.

 

There is only one reason why Tinder is not on my list. In fact it's not such an efficient way to find someone for serious dating in Russia. It’s rather easy in use and you can swipe right or left, expressing your interest. In the same way, you can decline unwanted profiles. So as a result it can take a lot of time to find someone real, not just a scammer. It’s huge work to sift through all the noise here.

 

I have my own experience with Tinder and I can say that there is a huge group pf woman who spends some time here just to raise my egoism. Those who are looking for serious relations should better choose dating sites, and in case if there are no more options can go on Tinder and start using it.

 

Your odds of success will be much higher if you speak some Russian. The more Russian you know, the better. It’s a huge advantage because there is a lot of women who don’t speak Russian.

 

It should be highlighted that in big cities such as Moscow and Saint Petersburg there is available an enormous pool of singles to choose from. In small towns, the dating pool is rather limited so the use of dating apps here can be rather frustrating.

 

There are a lot of legends about Russian beauty. And basically, it’s true because all the most beautiful women who I saw before were Russians. Even though I prefer Latins, Russian women are an exception. At once as you sigh up on the dating websites, you’ll face a new reality with a lot of stunning Russian beauties.

 

Before sign up for the one of the dating sites, recommended below, first of all, you should carefully read the profile to exclude fake ones. In most cases women with only one photo in bikini are fake. Also, it’s recommended to pass by the profiles with a lot of grammatical mistakes in the description.

 

Below is my oppinion of top 6 dating sites in Russia.

 
 YoooLove.com

    RussianCupid.com

The list of the best online dating site in Russia should be started with this one. Cupid Media has a lot of products, and it is a great example! While I was expatriate, I used one of the sites of Russiancupid.com for a long time, Afrointroductions.com.
If you’re looking for an adult woman in Moscow, you can find more than 1000 active profiles. A lot of RussianCupid members can be found in St. Petersburg as well.
RussianCupid is also known as RussianEuro.com. The Cupid Media Network gobbed it up and gave a re-haul.

The Numbers Game of Dating

 

In my online dating e-book, I’ve already mentioned that the use of dating apps is like communication in the real world. There would always be people who you like and who don’t like you and so on. You have to be ready for this. It’s just part of your life, so you have to try to get what you need.

    Dating.ru

 

One of the biggest dating websites in Russia is Dating.ru. Here are over 2.7 million users. It was launched in 1999.

 

On Dating.ru you would find rather standard features. But here are they are free even for free members. As for the video chat here, it is available for everybody. I can recommend this site for everybody who knows Russian or in going to Russia. It's not that easy to be successful on this site if you don’t speak the language or live there, however. There are not many users who speak English. On the website, there is no English support you may count only on yourself.

To sign up, enter all the basic information about yourself.

You will get a verification email with the link, and after that, you’re free to use the site.

And don't forget to upload your photos. Don’t forget to fill in the text boxes, adding their information about yourself. Describe your perfect match, specify your interests and preferences in sex.

    Badoo.com

 

Badoo dating site was launched in 2006 and it's also a rather good option for Russia.

 

I know a person who found his wife on Badoo, so I trust this app a lot. It’s “freemium”, so you can sign up freely. The users need to pay only for upgraded features.

 

Badoo operates in over 180 countries and that’s why I like it. If you are a frequent traveler like I am, it’s a rather useful service.

Badoo is user-friendly. When you first start the application, you will need to specify your gender and choose what exactly you want from Badoo (find new friends, just chat with someone or go on a date). After that, you only need to enter your mail or phone number, as well as write a name. Basically, if you log in via Facebook, then all this information will be automatically tightened.
To get to meeting new people, you just need to add a few of your photos. This is not necessary, but I think that you will inspire more confidence. In addition, you can indicate your place of work, education and other points, such as attitudes to smoking, alcohol and other aspects of life.

 


And don’t forget that patiently is rather important. It takes time to get good things, and it’s also about dating. We can look at the dating apps as we want, but you still should not ignore them. First off, it's a great way to have some fun. And secondly, no matter how strange it sounds, applications are the most realistic chance to meet your love in our age of apathetic millennials.

Good luck!
