Online dating sites in Ecuador are huge and are similar in size and quality to what you would find should you decide to do online dating in Peru. The sites I mention below have a large number of people and are, therefore, quite popular with foreigners (or Ecuadoreans for that matter) looking for love in this beautiful country.
Ecuadoreans have beautiful people. They don’t have the jaw-dropping beauty that you will find in other South American countries like Colombia or Brazil however, you will find some stunners here and there.
By putting a lot of time and effort into searching for someone to date on the sites below (and especially the first site I mention), you will find that online dating in Ecuador is like “shooting a fish in a barrel.” In other words, after a few weeks of messaging back and forth and sending lots of messages, you should be getting multiple telephone numbers and multiple dates. Online dating is what you make of it. The harder you work…the luckier you get.
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 dating sites in Ecuador. I’ll go into more detail in my reviews below.
Latin American Cupid is the best place to find love in Ecuador. The site has thousands of members. A simple search of women 21-35 who live in Ecuador will turn up more than 1000 profiles. The quality of the profiles and people on the site is also the best of any other dating site on the web servicing Ecuador.
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).

A massive worldwide online dating site launched in 2006, Badoo is a second option if you are looking to date someone in Ecuador. It is a step down from Latin American Cupid in terms of quality, but it is still worth setting up a profile. You will have to weed through a lot of frogs on this site though before you find your prince or princess. 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.

Online Dating Strategy:
- A lot of what I learned while dating online was through trial and error, planting a lot of seeds in order to get success…learning what works and doesn’t work and refining my approach along the way. You might have your own online dating strategy, and that is cool, but if you don’t and need a starting point, go and buy my e-book, Online Dating Success: How to Find Love Anywhere in the World. In the book I go into detail about how to set up a profile, what I recommend writing for your initial and follow up messages, when to ask the woman/man you’re interested in to go offline for a date, and more.
