First off, we love Badoo and think it is an awesome site. However, with that being said, we still think it is important to constantly be on the prowl for other alternatives to Badoo of a similar nature. A couple reasons for this is that you never know when a new better site is going to pop up or sort of go viral, and you never know if Badoo may suddenly lose traction and kind of die (a la MySpace). Or, even if neither of those two things happen, you tend to find different people on different sites because they don’t know about more than one such “social encounters” type social network for meeting new people. Thus, you can effectively expand the pool to include new potential friends. At any rate, check out our list of Badoo alternatives below:
Meetzur is new cool Badoo alternative with a lot of spunk. It states right on the homepage that its goal is to “connect you with strangers” and it definitely does. Because there is such a concentration on getting you to meet new people, the community itself has taken on a different vibe from most such sites, and the vibe in my opinion is much more laid back, making the entire expected motive behind using the site for any user seem much less strict, and thus making the site environment in general much more comfortable than average.
This site describes itself as a social network for “meeting new people”, and that’s exactly what it is! Features include games that essentially function as icebreakers, and the ability to share interests.
POF (Plenty of Fish) is the most popular free online dating site for English-speaking countries in the world. That about covers it.
This is another popular free online dating site that includes a proprietary matching algorithm – be sure to give it a try!
Although this free dating site is less popular than the 2 previously mentioned, it still has a large pool of people available and is definitely worth a glance, especially for US users.
