You can still read it here: Where to meet Indonesian girls? Most of the information on the review is still valid, but it certainly needs an update on the world of online dating through websites or social apps such as Badoo, Indonesian Cupid, Tinder, WeChat, Skout, Beetalk, etc. If you are looking for a great girl in Jakarta, online dating is by far your best chance. And maybe less than 1 percent is looking for a one night stand not the hottest girls usually. The fact that they are looking for a stable relationship does not mean they want to get married straight away.
It means they want to feel a long-term relationship is possible. For this reason, it may be more difficult for you to find a date if you are not staying in Indonesia and if you do not speak Indonesian.
Depending on which website or which app you use, you can pretty much chat with any type of women you could think of: Students, employees, executives, single mom, etc from any ethnicity or religion. There is such a diversity that it would be hard to generalize. To give you a better understanding, I will describe the specificities of each dating app or website below: Tinder Works best with younger guys living in Jakarta When Tinder started in Indonesia, most of its users were either foreign or Western-educated girls.
Its base has now expanded, but it is still the most trendy app to use. For this reason, this is where you will meet the most girls who can speak English and who have well-paid jobs. This is also where the most girls are interested in meeting foreigners.
If you stay abroad, this means you cannot chat with any girl in Jakarta before you arrive. It is an excellent site for those who are not in Indonesia but who are interested in chatting with local girls. Many Indonesian girls on IndonesianCupid are looking to meet foreigners and they won't turn you down if you say you are far away.
The demographics of IndonesianCupid is more middle class compared with Tinder. Typically, you'll chat with employees, teachers, nurses, etc. Since it is a website and not a mobile phone app, I find it much easier to write messages or browse profiles compared to Tinder.
Even if you use it for a month or two, it is still easy to see which girls are online among those you've chatted with before. You can register here: Sign-Up to Indonesian Cupid for Free.
It will also give you the edge compared to the other guys in terms of visibility. Ideal for arranging dates prior to visiting the country. Girls won't mind if you are not living in Indonesia and if you are older than them. It still has a large number of users though: I checked on 15 December at 7pm and there were women online in Jakarta vs on Indonesian Cupid. They also have a mobile app called "Hot or Not". You can filter girls by age, location, status, body type, etc. More than half the girls can speak English and many are interested in meeting foreigners.
Many "girls" on Badoo are in fact pimp looking for clients. This means it is harder to get girls' attention and your messages may be ignored. Instagram Yes, Instagram can be considered a dating website in Indonesia.
I know some guys who've met dozens of girls using it. Of course, you need to create an Instagram account and to upload interesting pictures regularly. If you are an expat who visits nice restaurants and hotels, it shouldn't be too hard to add at least a great photo every two days.
You can then follow some Instagram accounts of girls you like and write comments on their pictures. If they accept your invitation, you can start chatting with them. Many ladyboys and prostitutes use that feature so it can be quite annoying if this is not what you are looking for. You will also probably receive a lot of invitations from other guys. Girls using this feature do not always speak English very well. It is popular with the Chinese community but your chances of getting a reply is low unless you speak Chinese.
