The Best Sites And Apps Where You Can Date For Free

Modern single people are very lucky. Why? It’s because finding a soulmate today has become easier than ever. You don’t even need to leave your home to do this. Did you know that there are now over 8,000 dating sites and apps in the world? And also social networks, instant messengers, themed forums, random video chats and much more!

But that’s not all! Hundreds of more narrowly focused dating sites are available to us. For example, sites, apps and video chats for finding new friends, for intimate meetings, for bearded men and girls who like them, for lovers of hiking, for IT people, for gamers, for dog lovers and so on. Literally every person can find a partner of interest and not spend weeks and months looking for it. Everything is much easier! The main thing is to understand exactly what you need.

Action plan: first we set goals, then choose a platform for dating

Many people act in the reverse order — first they register on a dating site “out of curiosity”, and only then they work out why they need it. There are even those who do not fully understand why they use the dating platform.

To make life easier for yourself and others, try to answer a few questions first:

  1. What do I want — to find new friends, meet my true love or just chat with interesting people?
  2. Am I ready for a serious relationship or do I just want a fling?
  3. What’s really important to me in someone with whom I’m ready to share my life?
  4. What are my main interests and what interests should my partner have?
  5. Do I have time to search or do I want speed dating without any extra effort?

By answering these questions, you can more accurately choose the right dating site and really save yourself a lot of time. And at the same time, think over your plan of action. We also advise, if possible, to find out why the other user you’re talking to is on a dating site. It often happens that your goals are completely different, but you only find out about it after a week or even a month. The result is wasted time.

How to date on the Internet for free (or at least cheaply)

If you’ve used dating sites and apps before, you know they can be expensive. For example, on some sites you need to pay to send messages to other users. On others, to open your profile photo. On others still,  to turn on invisible mode and the like. Of course, not everyone is ready to pay, and sometimes you really want to save money. Fortunately, there is such an opportunity.

We’ve compiled for you a small list of online dating sites on the Internet where you can get acquainted for free or cheaply (with some paid features). 

  • Match — one of the first modern dating sites in history. It has been operating since 1995 and is still very popular. It’s free to create an account, set up a profile, like other users, play Matchmaking, view profiles and use search. But to send messages and take advantage of extended features, you will have to pay premium access — from $7.99 per month.
  • Bumble — a partially free dating app. You can view and like other people’s profiles, and send messages for free. A Bumble Boost Premium account gives you advanced search filters, access to the section “You were liked”, unlimited swipes, incognito mode, and more. The cost is from $8.99. But keep in mind that only girls can write first here.
  • Hinge — an application with free basic functionality. You do not pay for registration, user search, chatting in text and other standard features. For a fee, you can raise your rating, expand the list of search tools, and more.
  • Facebook Dating — a free dating service where you can search for new people, chat, see who likes you, and more. At the moment, the site is completely free. Perhaps this will change in the future. However, Facebook Dating does not yet work in all countries.
  • OkCupid — offers free registration, search for a suitable match based on the answers to the questions in the profile, texting and virtual dates. Additional features are available for a fee: you can find out who liked you, use an extended list of search filters, disable ads, and much more. Premium access starts at $9.99 per month.
  • Grindr — allows you to create a profile for free, use search, and text chat with other members. With premium access, you can see your page visitors, be incognito, view unlimited profiles, and more.
  • Happn — a nearly free dating service, but with rather limited functionality. To use Happn to the fullest, you will have to pay for a subscription or buy Credits and Coins — the internal currency.
  • Chatrandom — a partially free random chat where you can use basic functions — chat with strangers, use gender and geographic search filters. But in order, for example, to visit a separate chat with girls, you will have to buy Chatrandom PLUS — from $6.99.
  • CooMeet — one of the best random video chats for men who only want to meet girls. The platform simply does not connect them with other men. The best part is that you can use all the features of this random video chat with girls absolutely free. Every new member gets free premium access during a trial period.
  • Bazoocam — a free random chat with strangers. You don’t have to pay to use it, but keep in mind that there is rather mediocre moderation and a lot of very controversial users. Be careful!

As you can see the choice is really big. In addition, there are plenty to choose from even for those who want to save money. But if you want to get the most useful features, more search tools, and increase your chances of success, you will most likely have to spend a little. And if it does produce results, then they are definitely worth a couple of dollars!

So is it possible to date on the Web completely free and unrestricted?

You can and even need to! There are hundreds of online dating services at your disposal, available either completely free of charge, or with free basic features, or with a trial period for which you also do not pay a cent.

We want to give only one important piece of advice. Remember that classic dating sites and apps are not interested in you quickly finding a match and leaving the site. It is beneficial for them that you stay here longer and bring money. Yes, sometimes such expenses are fully justified. But if you see that the money is gone but there is no result, we advise you to choose another site.

Be sure to pay attention to random video chats. As you already know, many of them are free or almost free. Or, for example, there’s CooMeet, where you can try all 100% of the features, and only then decide whether you are ready to use random chat on a paid basis. We guarantee you’ll love it!
