The 3 Best Online Dating Sites in Peru

Online dating in Peru has experienced rapid growth, gaining quick acceptance in very much the same way that online dating in Brazil and Colombia has taken off.

As is the case with most Latin American countries, the majority of Peruvians meet their romantic partners via the traditional methods of mutual friends, organizations, work, school, or church, etc; however, this game is changing, and online dating is becoming increasingly more mainstream. Your best success with online dating in Peru will be in the big cities like Lima where there is a larger pool of people from which to choose.

Peruvians don’t have the reputation for beautiful that you will find in other South American countries such as Brazil or Argentina. Don’t go into Peru expecting to find the stunners you will find in these other South American countries.

Should you decide to date women or men from Peru, you might be able to find some diamonds in the rough. I know some people who have. The key is to send out a lot of messages as it will be purely a numbers game. The more messages you send, the higher your chances are of finding the optimal partner.

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 three dating sites in Peru. I’ll go into more detail in my reviews below.

  1. Latin American Cupid
  2. Tagged
  3. Badoo

1. Latin American Cupid

Latin American Cupid is pretty good for Peru and, in my book, is the best site to use.  A search for women living in Peru between 21 and 35 years old who have been active on the site within the last 3 months turns up more than 1000 profiles.

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. Tagged

Tagged is probably Badoo’s largest competitor (see Badoo below) in that they offer a product that is very similar. I like to leave no stone unturned in the dating search, so I recommend you sign up and give it a try after you’ve exhausted the other options above.  I must say that the Tagged interface is not nearly as clean as the interface of Latin American Cupid and is a bit confusing for my tastes. Also, not all of the profiles seem to be real, meaning that you have to weed through a lot of garbage in order to find the hidden gems.

3. Badoo.com

Badoo is really only worth your time if you have run out of options. It just doesn’t have the same quality as Latin American Cupid, which is why I would not focus on it as a starting point for your 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.
