Most of my matches were from other States or too far away, too short or their sexuality is open-minded – not sure what it means exactly but would rather stick with a straight guy, and some were in an open-relationship – sorry but I have no intention of sharing.
I was actually looking for Tinder since everybody else seemed to be raving about it. To join Badoo, you have 2 options, enter your email and password or join through Facebook.I am always hesitant with websites or apps that do not give many options or they only want you to login with your Facebook credentials even though I am an online social butterfly! But after a few weeks I wasn unable to login to Badoo at all.I tried to reset my password several times but I still couldn’t login. For we decided we would review dating sites, so Badoo was given a second chance.The only way I could read my messages was clicking on the link in the email notification and it would open directly into Safari but it was so tedious to read messages as you could not see what you were typing. This time I could not be bothered and joined using my Facebook credentials.To my surprise as I logged in I already had messages in my inbox and favorites which I thought was a bit strange…
Then one guy messaged me and mentioned he was logged on Hot or Not. It was originally a photo rating site, now seemed to be a Hangout app only.
You could comment on the pictures and send messages privately. Another guy told me he was logging in from Blendr – a site that I’d heard of but as yet not checked out, another one to add to the review list!
You feel out your profile and add a few pics and you decide on a few things: This is where you decide on an age groupyou are interested in.
Then you can write something about yourself in the “about me” section, add your interests, and your features such as relationship, sexuality, height, kids….
Your interests are kind of important because this is the only things about who you are that will show up with your pictures when you play encounter.
Once your dating profile is done, you can move on to the next section of Badoo which will show you the people nearby as this app is location based.
