The Two Best Online Dating Sites in Chile

Online dating sites in Chile remind me a lot of online dating sites in Argentina. Don’t expect to find a large number of single men and women to choose from as is the case for countries like Colombia and Peru. Online dating in Chile hasn’t really taken off, and people still choose to meet their romantic partners via the traditional methods of mutual friends, organizations, work, school, or church, etc.

I think as time goes on, online dating will grow in Chile, but it will be gradually. If you are a lonely expatriate or foreigner in search of someone to date in Chile, either offline or online, make sure you concentrate your time in Santiago which has the largest pool of singles in the country.

Signing up for the sites below and putting in a lot of work on your part, you might have success in Chile. As they say, you reap what you sow. So start sowing those seeds so that you can eventually enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Should you decide to sign up for the online dating sites I recommend below, be sure to read member profiles carefully as you might come across a lot of fake profiles. Usually, I can spot these profiles easily. A woman who has only one picture posted, is wearing a tight bikini and making an overly suggestive pose are usually clear signals to steer clear.

Without further ado, here is the quick list of the top two best dating sites in Chile. I’ll go into more detail in my reviews below.

  1. Latin American Cupid
  2. Badoo

1. Latin American Cupid

While Dominicans and Colombians seem to dominate Latin American Cupid, it is still pretty good for those looking for love in Chile. A simple search of women 21-35 who live in Chile will turn up a considerable number of profiles. The selection of women and men on this site is not near what you will find at the site I mention below, but the quality is much better. I also really like the easy-to-use interface.

Latin American Cupid

Latin American Cupid seems to have a lot of men and women on the site living in Santiago, so, if you are going to use this site, Santiago seems like your best city for attaining success.

To have the full messaging functionality and to appear higher in the search results, you will have to buy a Gold or Platinum subscription. I normally always do Platinum with these sites. The few extra dollars you pay per month is usually worth the results you get. Remember, your love life, like your career and education, is one big investment that, when successful, will pay off in the end.

As I mention in my online dating e-book, just like the real world, there will be men or women who you will not click with or who don’t respond to your messages (or just disappear).  There are women or men who might only be interested in helping you to part with your money. That is life.  Just keep sending out messages and reach out until you find the person you are looking for and get success. As is typical with online dating, expect a response rate of around 1-10% depending on how good your profile is. (response rate = people who will respond back to you to whom you sent an introduction message).

2. Badoo.com

Badoo in Chile

Badoo is a last resort option for Chile. On face value, if you do a search of let’s say, women between 25 and 35 years old, you will turn up a lot of women in your search results. The problem with Badoo though is that you will have to weed through a lot of low quality/fake profiles in order to locate real people. The quality is just not as good as you will find on Latin American Cupid although the selection is a lot larger. Because of my issues with the quality of profiles on Badoo, I would not focus on it as a starting point for my dating search.

Badoo works on the “freemium” model, which means that it is free to sign up, but you have to pay for upgraded features. The site operates in over 180 countries, and is popular in Latin America and Europe.
