The Two Best Online Dating Sites in Latvia

Latvia doesn’t have the selection of quality online dating sites like you have in Russia or the Ukraine. However, the sites that I mention here – the best online dating sites in Latvia – will put you in the best position for online dating success in this country.

Dating in Latvia can be quite fruitful if you have willpower and are willing to put in hours of work searching profiles and sending messages. Also, you will be at a huge advantage if you know how to speak some Latvian as many of the men and women on these sites do not speak an ounce of English.

Latvian people are very social and outgoing. And, as is the case with the other countries in the Baltics, the women of the country are beautiful. Your best chance for success will be in Riga, which has the largest pool of singles in the country. Get yourself a ticket to this country and get to work (but have fun of course!).

As I mention in my online dating e-book, 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 and women looking for “clients.” Usually, I can spot these profiles pretty 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. Another clue of a pretender is a woman who has a poorly written profile. As a general rule of thumb, the more boring the profile, the more boring the person.

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

Mamba.ru

I’m usually not a fan of Mamba as a primary dating option because there are a lot of trash profiles on the site. However, for Latvia it is truly the best launching point for your Latvian online dating adventure. Don’t be surprised to find women on there that lie about their age or are looking for a visa sponsor or “client.” The good thing is that Mamba is completely free, and I know people who use this site as their sole online dating tool for Russia and Ukraine.

Also a big tip for Mamba is to indicate that you actually live in Latvia. Saying that you live in the United States or any other country abroad will result in a much lower response rate.

 

2. Badoo.com

Badoo.com

A massive worldwide online dating site launched in 2006, Badoo is an OK option for Latvia. If you do a search of active people over the last month, you will turn up a lot of people in your search results. The problem with Badoo is the same problem you will have using this site in any country…you will have to weed through a lot of low quality profiles in order to locate real people.

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.
