*This article will talk about Online Dating in Korea for men. It will discuss how to use various online websites and apps to meet Korean girls. This article is in no way advocating abuse of these sites or women met on these sites. All comments about women on these sites is not meant to be degrading, but my opinions based on my experiences. Everybody’s experiences will differ using these websites and apps.
Online Dating Korea (For Men)
So, you are a lonely guy staying in Korea looking to hook up, date or have a serious girlfriend with a local Korean girl. For whatever reason, you’re shy, don’t want to date a student, or just hate the bar scene, you guess that meeting a Korean girl online, or connecting through an app, is the best option for you. In this article, I will go through and discuss various online dating sites and apps to help you fine the right Korean woman for you.
Payment - For most Korean dating sites you can join free. But a free account get you limited ability to connect with girls. If you are a guy, you will need to pay. It is possible to use free functions on these sites, but you will just be frustrated, not talking to many women and basically being outdone by your rivals; other men. Usually, there are more men than women on these sites, and the men are more active and aggressive contacting the women. So, usually, the women don’t pay and just sit back and wait for the men to contact them. To have no restrictions and improve your odds of getting the type of girl you are seeking, you need to pay. In my opinion, it is best just to pay for a monthly or yearly membership. These are usually up to a hundred dollars and without a doubt, your investment will see returns. Messaging and Chatting Interfaces - On these sites, the messaging or chatting interfaces suck. They are good to use, but if you do start chatting with a girl you like, it is best to move immediately to an alternative more popular chatting program like MSN, Yahoo or Google. If you have KakaoTalk that is the BEST way to continue chatting with a Korean girl. After you initiate contact and like the girl, just ask her if she uses one of these programs and then ask her about her ID, so you can connect to her outside of the dating site. Here are the most popular Korean dating sites and apps:
Korean Cupid [ Visit Here ] This is the best site. Best interface and availability of girls. The Cupid Network is highly popular and their software is great. I like easy interface and the girls seem easier to talk to and meet. I certainly recommend this site. I have kept my account active for over 3 years here. Price (As of March 2013): 3 months – $59.99 1 year – $120
UBLove [ Visit Here ] This was the first online dating site I used. It was quite good…was. It is owned and operated by a Korean here in Korea. I had little technical difficulties using their interface. Lately, it hasn’t been so busy. I let my account go inactive. Price (As of April 2013): 3 months – $50 1 year – $100
KoreaFriendFinder [ Visit Here ]
This site sucks. It used to be good, but it had died away. Unfortunately, this site attracts a lot of a-holes, so the girls just keep away. I used if for 2011, but let it die. I checked it out again it recently, but it seems to have gotten worse. Avoid.
Price (As of April 2013): 4 months – $21 1 year – Not Available
BADOO (Online and App) [ Visit Here ] An excellent app(can get PC version, too) for any single guy traveling the world. It will tell you the location of the woman and how close she is to you. A good way to meet women in your area. I used it both in Korea, Japan, Thailand, U.S.A and Europe. It is free, but you have limits of how many girls you can contact in a day. Once you do initiate contact, you can talk with them forever without limits. If you want to contact more girls in a day, you need to pay. In Korea, it is not so easy to meet the girls, but possible. The above dating websites are better. Price (As of March 2013): $50 won maximum credits.
MeetMe (App) Another app, not as popular as Badoo, but a way to meet girls. Again, it tells you the location of the women, so it’s easier to meet girls in your area. Price (As of April 2013): Credits $39.99 1 year – None
