Badoo is one of the few dating sites that is also a real social network. It began in London and grew to be used all over the world. It’s especially popular in Brazil, so if you’re planning a trip to the next Carnaval, check it out and find some friends and dates before you go. Even if you don’t have that particular need, it’s a pretty cool site with great features. In the U.S. they integrated with the once popular site Hot or Not, which is not only nostalgic, but fun way to find new dates. Who knows, maybe you’ll come across those photos you posted back in 2001, which would be weird and amazing too. You could say it’s the original swipe dating.
Badoo site works like most social media sites. You can search for people for dating, friendship, and chatting. It has basic and advance search features. You can filter for age range, distance, body type, kids, education and zodiac sign. Sometimes it can be awkward when you come across friends, family, or co-workers on dating sites. The great thing about Badoo is that it’s not just a dating site, so it’s more light-hearted and fun and it allows you to check to see if any of your contacts are already members. I really enjoyed the fact that it’s international. Within minutes of joining, I was getting chat requests from all over the world. That won’t do a lot for your dating life at home, but if you like to travel like me, you can date your way around the world. What better way to see the local spots, than going on adventures after having breakfast at a hot local’s place. Although not as popular in the United States, it still has a good sized membership that you will easily find date from.
