The world swipes right on online dating, especially when it comes to dating someone from another country. Let’s talk about the 9 best international dating sites. The majority of Americans who use online dating apps do it to meet romantic partners and to date people to have something fun/interesting to do with, and in general, that can be applied to international dating as well.



Top 3 Eastern European dating sites:
Bravo Date — a ton of free and premium features
Amour Factory — meet interesting people there
Jolly Romance — great free search filters

Top 3 Asian singles dating sites:

Asian Melodies — 20 free credits after registration
Lover Whirl — plenty of communication functions
Asia Me — easy and fast registration



Top 3 Latin singles dating sites:

Latin Feels— a cool offer for the new customers
Love Fort — easy to use interface
Latam Date — (almost) perfect mobile app


More and more people date online. Is it true?
The interest in online dating decreased a little during the pandemic, it’s true, but now, with the reopenings and returning to normal life, it's expected to grow at an even higher rate than before 2020. This applies to international dating as well, but there are some different patterns for local and worldwide dating. Thus, if you take a look at the statistics, you'll find out that most international couples have met online. However, only 6.6% of K-1 visa applicants met their fiancés on Tinder — and in absolute terms, this number doesn't seem that impressive.

This is basically the main difference between local and international dating — when it comes to the latter, it's not about Tinder, Bumble, Match, and other apps that are thriving in America. If you’re looking into dating a person from abroad, you need to go another way — the way of niche international dating services. These services are focused on connecting people from different parts of the world in terms of a romantic relationship and here, we’ll talk about 9 legitimate international dating sites that are almost perfect for finding international love.

Best dating sites for international relationships
DatingStudio has already listed 9 sites for dating abroad. Here, you’ll find 9 short international dating sites reviews — we’ll talk about the strong sides of these websites and about their free/paid features to help you understand which one will work better for your purposes.

Best Asian dating sites reviews
The following dating websites are focused on men and women from both East and Southeast Asia. Such countries as the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, China, Korea, and others are covered.

Asian Melodies
Being very mobile friendly, Asian Melodies doesn’t only impress with its convenience and bright and memorable design. The website also offers all kinds of communication tools (from live chat to emails), it has thousands of very detailed profiles with 10+ photos, and of course, there is a "Request contact info" feature here so you can move your online international relationship offline.
However, not all these things are free to use on Asian Melodies. You can sign up, upload some photos, add men and women to your Favorites list, and send them “winks” for free. To send them messages and to request their contact data, you’ll need to buy credits.

Lover Whirl
This is probably the best international dating site — but everything comes with a cost (this site is slightly pricier compared to the previous services). Lover Whirl has a lot of messaging services, the mobile version is just great, and the overall impression is rather pleasant. However, it’s still not a free overseas dating website. Registration, browsing profiles, and using the search tools are 100% free here. But you'll have to buy credits to send and receive messages, to call users, and to use video exchange.

Asia Me
Asia Me provides a large set of features. There are two communication tools - messaging and video exchange.
Asia Me is another dating platform that has a credit system — you buy credits with your credit card/PayPal, then start chatting or sending messages to users. Contact or meeting request is another paid feature, and you'll also need to buy credits to view the videos some users upload. These are just introduction videos where the site users talk a little about themselves. Registration is free here, as well as sending winks and viewing the photos of Asia Me followers.

Best Eastern European dating sites reviews
When it comes to Eastern Europe, there are two most popular countries for dating in this region: Ukraine and Russia. Such countries as Poland, Belarus, and Moldova, are not that popular but they are also covered by most Eastern European dating websites.

BravoDate
A great dating website with a huge assortment of paid/free features and services. Video attachments, mobile version, smart matchmaking algorithm, lots of messaging tools — there's a lot to love about BravoDate.
You can create a new account, use search filters, add your photo, and browse the profiles for free. If you want to use more features, you will need to buy credits — they are required to send messages, to chat with people, and to have a video exchange with other members of this website. Of course, all the other advanced features, e.g. flowers’ delivery, are also paid.

Amour Factory
Once you sign up, you'll probably be surprised with the number of profiles and their quality. That's one of the most impressive things about AmourFactory — there are many detailed profiles with more than 10 photos on this platform. The user-friendly and mobile-friendly interface is another advantage of AmourFactory, as well as its free and fast registration.
Of course, you don't need to pay right away. The registration is free, all the search tools are available to free users. Also, you can like photos for free, as well as add the users you like to your Favorites list. Everything else is paid — you will need to buy credits to send messages, to view the introduction videos of the women and men, and to request meetings. If you’re thinking of actually dating someone from another country, not just viewing their photos, you’ll have to pay on Amour Factory.

Jolly Romance
JollyRomance is a good dating platform to find international love. It’s mostly focused on Russia and Ukraine. The users can switch to offline communication if they want to (and if they have enough credits), so Jolly Romance looks like a good choice for those who consider this option, too. Good search tools and easy-to-use interface make the site a win-win option for an international romance. If you don't know where to start searching for a girlfriend or boyfriend, JollyRomance might be a good choice.
Registration is free, but that's not all. You can view all the users’ profiles and their photos, you can "like" the profiles and send them "winks" to show you're interested. Messaging requires payment, as well as personal information requests.

Best Latin dating sites reviews
The following sites are mostly focused on Colombia, Brazil, Mexico (it’s not Latin America, right), and Argentina. Such countries as Argentina, Peru, and even Venezuela are also covered.

Latin Feels
There are lots of women and men from every South American country here. This website has a very easy-to-use interface, which is a serious advantage for those who have never used international dating platforms before. Great search tools, mobile-friendliness, very detailed profiles — it makes Latin Feels is worth trying.
If you are going to send emails, to chat with users, or to view their profile videos, you will need credits. You don't need them if you are only going to browse the profiles and add people’s profiles to the Favorite list (this function is useful if you don’t want to lose someone’s account, but interact with it later).

Love Fort
If you’ve never used online dating sites before, Love Fort is a nice choice for you — they are easy-to-use and mobile-friendly. You'll be pleasantly surprised by the number and the quality of the profiles, by the customer support speed, and by the number of premium features on LoveFort.
It’s a paid service with only a few free features (registration, browsing profiles, sending winks, etc). There is a credit system here — you need to buy credits to send messages, use live chat, view all the photos, and see who has visited your profile. There is a good offer for new customers on LoveFort — you can buy 20 credits for only $2.99 (after that, a 20-credit package will cost you $10).

Latam Date
Like the two services above, LatamDate can impress a user with the assortment of free and (especially) paid features, with the number of members, and with a great mobile app.
Sending messages, viewing the videos, using the live chat, calling the singles, and having a video chat — all these things are only available to the users who have a certain amount of credits. If you have 0 credits, you can create a profile, upload some photos, and browse the profiles, but that's all.

Do you really need international dating? How much does it usually cost?

There is no “one answer fits all” kind of thing when it comes to dating abroad, of course. If you are interested in finding a partner from another country, there’s simply no better choice than dating sites — offline international dating is much more time-consuming, expensive, and even dangerous than online dating. Just think about it: you’ll need to pay several thousands of dollars to have a 1-2-week trip to almost any country in the world. If you date online, it’s much cheaper — usually, the websites for international relationships cost about $50-$100 per month. However, it depends on the assortment of features you need.

As you see, the odds are the same when you do it online, but it’s much cheaper, faster, and convenient than going to Ukraine, to the Philippines, or to Colombia and trying to get acquainted with somebody in the street.

All of the dating sites mentioned above are worth your attention due to the services they offer, their original designs and general convenience of the platforms. If you are the one searching for a romantic relationship overseas, these 9 international dating platforms can be a big help for you.
