Here is my quick list of the top three dating sites and apps in Italy. I’ll go into more detail in my reviews later in this article.

  1. Meetic.it
  2. Badoo
  3. Tinder

Italy doesn’t really have a strong online dating and dating app scene like in other European countries, such as unlike Spain and Germany. There are several online dating sites and apps to chose from, but it is near impossible to find a match unless you are in a a city with a lot of single people, like Rome, Milan, Naples, Florence, or Venice.

My goal in this post is to highlight the handful of dating sites that are worth your time so that you can get on your way to finding love in this country. Without further ado, below are my detailed reviews of the top three dating sites and apps in Italy.

1. Meetic.it

Founded in 2001 and based in Boulogne-Billancourt, France, Meetic.it is the best online dating site in Italy. From its humble beginnings, it has grown into the largest online dating site in Europe (source: JupiterResearch). Following the acquisition of Match.com’s European operations, the site exploded in popularity and has millions of members all across the EU. If you have time to sign up for only one online dating site in Italy, this would be the one that I would recommend.

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 will be 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

Badoo

Badoo definitely makes the list for the best online dating sites in Italy (This site rocks in Switzerland, Belgium and Germany as well!). I really like the sophisticated search engine that makes it easy to find potential matches.

 

3. Tinder

Tinder is perfect for people between the ages of 18 and 40. This app is all about the “swipe life.” You download the app and swipe right if you’re interested in someone and swipe left if you’re not interested in someone. Make sure you have a good photo for this app because the photo is the thing that matters the most in getting good dating leads.
