For some people it might seem to be difficult to find girls in Indonesia on the streets. Dating apps are the best option nowadays to find girls quick and easy online. The best Indonesian dating apps we show you in this post…
Where dating apps working best in Indonesia
In Indonesia not every place is suitable for dating. Without a doubt the best spot to date Indonesian girls via the internet is Bali and Jakarta. Bali is the biggest tourist spot and the best option to find Indonesian girls for fun or maybe even a relationship. Jakarta is the capital of Indonesia and an important spot for all kind of people. There are the universities many office jobs and also a lively nightlife scene exists in Jakarta. All the here mentioned dating apps are working really well in Bali, Yogyakarta and Jakarta but also some other places. Just try them out…
Bumble is the most “feminist” dating app. The girls have to message guys first in order to get in touch with them. The app works really good in Jakarta because, even though it doesn’t have thousands of profiles like Tinder, most girls using it are educated and they have good jobs. There are also many foreign girls using it, especially in Bali.
- Smart and educated girls
- High proportion of foreign girls (especially in Bali)
- No need to message the girls first
- Video call feature within the app
- Only a mobile app so you have to type your messages on your mobile
- Not more than a couple hundred profiles in Jakarta, many of which are already on Tinder
Tinder is the best dating app option if you want quick dates or maybe even only fun. Tinder is less a serious dating app and more a quick hook up game. The apps works in Bali really well, there are many Indonesian women, as well as western girls and tourists registered. Also Jakarta is a good place to use Tinder. Be aware, that not all Tinder profiles are real girls. Especially in Bali many Tinder „girls“ are Pimps who are looking for a possibility to find customers for their girls. It can happen, that the girls is totally a different one than on the Tinder profile…
A boost costs around US$4 and it can be addictive. You will get more matches at first, but as soon as you stop, you will get nothing. So you’ll keep boosting your profile, again and again, matching with girls who are often not really interested to chat.
If you don’t use any boost from the start, your profile will only be shown to usually less-attractive girls who swipe right/left a lot (because first, they will see hundreds of guys who boosted their profiles).
- You can “like” (swipe right) up to 50 profiles per day for free
- Easy to get several matches every day
- Thousands of Indonesian girls are using it
- Works really good in Bali
- Too many girls just looking for attention (or who are advertising their Instagram account)
- You can not see which girls are online
- You can not chat with a girl if you haven’t matched with her already
- You can not like more than 50 girls per day (or you must pay)
- You can only see girls around you (unless you pay). If you stay abroad, this means you cannot chat with any girl in Indonesia before you arrive.
- Many Pimps are using fake profiles to get customers
Badoo used to be the best dating website in Indonesia but it is clearly not as popular as it used to be. It has a large number of users, the members are on the same level as with IndonesianCupid. Badoo attracts 99,9% of Indonesian girls, from all backgrounds. You can filter girls by age, location, status, body type, etc. More than half the girls can speak English and many are interested in meeting foreigners. Online prostitution on Badoo is, unfortunately, a problem. Many “girls” on Badoo are in fact pimp looking for clients.
Badoo works best in Jakarta and Bali. In Bali there are also many western girls using Badoo.
- Lots of girls online
- Both a website and an app with geo-localization
- You can send messages to 5 girls per day for free and you “like” as many as you want
- Many, many prostitutes and fake accounts
- Many girls can’t speak English well
- Because it is cheaper, there are more guys on Badoo. This means it is harder to get girls’ attention and your messages may be ignored.
WeChat is normally a messenger app but it has a “look around” feature which allows you to add girls located within a few kilometers from your current location. If they accept your invitation, you can start chatting with them.
Many ladyboys and prostitutes use that feature so it can be quite annoying if this is not what you are looking for. You will also probably receive a lot of invitations from other guys. Girls using this feature do not always speak English very well. WeChat is a good option on Bali if you are want just casual encounters and paid sex. Serious dating is in our opinion almost impossible.
- Location based
- You can not meet a normal girl using it
IndonesianCupid – App only for Android
IndonesianCupid is a more traditional dating website that but also has an application for Android. iPhone users must to live with a simple but well made mobile version for phone browsers. If you have an iPhone, you can use the mobile version of IndonesianCupid via your browser. It works really well and there is no iPhone app needed to use IndonesianCupid on mobile with iOS.
IndonesianCupid is an excellent site for those who are not in Indonesia but who are interested in chatting with Indonesian girls. Most Indonesian girls on IndonesianCupid are looking to meet foreigners, even if they are not living in Indonesia. Because of this, they won’t turn you down if you say you are currently in the US, in Europe or in Australia. Girls on IndonesianCupid are mostly from the middle class. Typically, you’ll chat with employees, teachers, nurses, etc. but there are also many working girls and freelancers, especially in Bali, Yogyakarta and Jakarta.
You can register the basic account at Indonesian Cupid for free. But of course there are limitations in the basic version. However the free account gives you full access to the members database and you can check it out. If you want to chat with the girls or contact many different Indonesian women, then we recommend to upgrade to premium, which lifts the restrictions and it won’t cost you a fortune…
