Badoo UK Dating Site – Badoo Review
|Our Badoo UK Review
Badoo is a free to join dating website and is one of the fastest growing social networks in the world.There are currently over 130 million members worldwide and it is used in over 180 countries. At the time of writing this, Badoo has been growing at a rate of 120,000 members per day, so if you are from the UK you’ll find that there are plenty of members to meet. The philosophy of the site is to create a place to “chat, flirt socialise and have fun”
You can register with Badoo for free, very quickly and easily. Unlike many dating sites you don’t have to spend hours answering questions and it is very simple to create your profile. It took me just a few minutes to register with the site and confirm my email address and then I was asked to upload some photos.
If you want to have a look around first you can skip the photos and go straight to searching for people. Just choose your preferred age range, whether you are looking for a guy or a girl and how far away from your location you are willing to meet people from. A quick search within the 30-35 age range within 15 miles of my area showed over 4000 people, so not a bad start at all!
When you start browsing you can view everyones’ photo and part of their profile and the full range of photos and full profile becomes available to you after you have added at least 3 photos of yourself
If you are thinking of signing up with Badoo, read my quick Badoo Review below to find out whether or not it is right for you.
Badoo Facts and Features at a Glance
NUMBER OF MEMBERS: 130 Million members in Europe (not sure how many in Badoo UK)
MEMBERSHIP COST: Membership to Badoo is free and you can access a good range of features and view photos of members without upgrading. If you do decide to upgrade the cost is £8.49 for one month, £6.66 a month if you sign up for 3 months, £5 a month if you sign up for 6 months or £4.17 a month if you sign up for a year. The screenshot below shows you the features you get access to with an upgraded membership.
FEATURES: There is a very quick and easy to use search facility allowing you to see people of your preferred age range in your local area. You’ll also find an “Encounters” button – if you click it you’ll be presented with a random person who matches your search criteria. You can click on “Yes”, “No” or “Maybe” to indicate whether you’d like to meet that person. A popularity guage shows how popular you are on the site. This starts at very low when you join and you can help to increase it by adding photos and completing your profile.
PROFILE FEATURES: Add up to 100 photos to your album, list your interests, say a few words about yourself, say what you’re looking for, personal information such as relationship, sexuality, appearance, children, smoking, drinking, work, languages and living.
SEARCH FEATURES: The Badoo basic search includes age range, girl or guy and location. There is also an advanced search that allows you to search based on up to three other critera including status, education, weight, smoking, drinking, children and various others. To access the advanced search you need to upgrade (aka activating your super powers).
FUN FEATURES: The “Encounters” button will show you a random person that matches your criteria. Just say “Yes”, “No” or “Maybe”. There’s also a Badoo desktop app that you can download and see people who are near you. To be honest though, I would be a little too worried about privacy to download an app that shows people my location!
GAY DATING – if you are a guy looking for another guy, or a lady looking for another lady, then you can register with Badoo in the normal way and just specify this on the initial signup page or inside your profile. When you use the basic search feature you can specify whether you’d like to meet
Verdict of Badoo UK:
3 out of 5 Heart Rating
Badoo is a nice, simple and friendly site to use, It is very simple and for people who are on a budget it is ideal as you can realistically use the site without upgrading. If you do want to upgrade, the costs are around a quarter of the price of many other UK dating websites. Since this site is free to join and you can browse profiles and photo at no cost, you may find that many of the people on Badoo are no longer active. The best plan is to try it for free first and only consider upgrading if it is working for you.
