BravoDate is an international dating site designed for people looking for matches worldwide. Though most members join it to find serious relationships, users who are looking for friendship and cross-cultural communication are welcome, too. Currently, the site has over 23 thousand users, and about 2 thousand members join daily. This is a premium website, but it offers bonuses even for non-paying members: they get 20 free credits to test premium features. Users who have enough credits can send emails, use live chat, request another member’s contacts, and request real meetings. The price of 1 credit varies from about $0.15 to about $0.50 (depending on credit package). Those who don’t want to upgrade can use standard features like search, winks, and the game Faces. All users can also access and browse the site on most mobile devices, including tablets.


LoveFort has over 25 thousand users. Most of them are looking for long-term relationships, but users who are looking for cross-cultural communication, friendship, or just fun, can join the community, too. Most members share a lot of information about them and matches they are looking for. This information, as well as photos (most members upload at least a few pics) are available in their profiles. All registered users can browse them using both their PC or mobile browser.

Note that this is a premium website, and though some free features are available, the best services like messaging and requesting contacts are paid ones. Premium members buy credits to use them. The prices of credits vary. The new members can purchase 20 credits for only $2.99 — this is a generous discount. More excitingly, 20 free credits are offered to each new user, and it’s enough to try some services on the site.


Asian Melodies has over 1 million visitors every month, and male members outnumber female users. All members need to confirm their emails after signing up and they also can confirm their IDs and become verified members later. Any user can register, confirm their email, and browse the website using a mobile-optimized version of the site.

All new members get a welcome package — the complimentary credits they can spend on premium dating services. After you spend them, you can purchase more credits that cost $0.15-$0.28 depending on the package you choose (the more credits you purchase the less you pay for one credit.) Unlike standard members, premium users can not only view profiles, send winks, and use search but also enjoy unlimited texting, set up dates, and request other member’s contact details.

A woman whispering in a man's ear is one of the oldest dating websites on the market. It was launched over 25 years ago, and currently, it connects singles from 24 countries. It has over 4 million members in the US and also millions of members in Europe, Latin America, Asia, and even in South Africa. New non-paying members who join it can:

  • Sign up
  • Create profiles
  • Edit profiles
  • Use search
  • Send likes
  • Play the Match game

Free members need to upgrade to use premium services that let them send messages, use live chat, see who viewed and liked your profile, remove particular members from search results, and even attend events arranged by the company to meet singles in person. The company also has a great mobile app — anyone can get it on Google Play or App Store.


Jolly Romance is also an international dating site designed for singles looking for new relationships. Now, the platform has about 250 thousand male and over 200 female users. It’s noteworthy that most users have validated profiles.

New and standard members who haven’t upgraded their accounts yet can edit their profiles, look through other user’s profiles, view pics. Members can access JollyRomance for overseas dating using a smartphone, too: they can open the site in any suitable browser and enjoy communication online.


Zoosk is an online dating service available worldwide. It has 40 million members, and nearly 20 million of them are from the United States. Members who join the community and don’t upgrade to Premium have access to plenty of features. In particular, they can create accounts, edit them, send smiles and likes, view profiles, and use the Carousel feature (a tinder-like game in which you like or skip members). But if users want to send messages, use the SmartPicks feature, invite others to live chat, and see who liked their profile, they need to upgrade to premium.

New users get 20 credits for free. Once they run out of credits, they can purchase 20 credits again, for $9.99 (there may be discounts for newcomers.) That’s how they can use such features as messaging and contact requests.


This site has millions of members worldwide. There is a verification procedure, and a lot of users worldwide prefer to go through this process — that’s how they make their profiles more popular. Currently, AsiaMe provides high quality services — it offers live chat, phone calls, etc. These special services, however, are available only to premium members who purchase credits. The prices vary from $2 to $3.99 per credit. There is also the international dating app by Asia Me. It’s available on Google Play.


This global dating site has over 800 thousand users from the US, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Is LatinFeels one of the free international dating sites? Not really. New members can get 20 credits free and test premium features like messaging, sending emails, and requesting contact details, but they will need to make a real purchase after they run out of free credits. A 20 credit package costs $9.99 (there are special discounts for new members). Users who want to browse the site using their smartphone can try a mobile-optimized browser version.

There is also a mobile app available for both Android and iOS users, and it is completely free to download. 


EliteSingles is aimed at connecting mature and educated singles looking for serious relationships. Everyone can join it for free, answer all the questions, get a detailed profile, like other members, like their profiles, and contact support. Members who want to communicate with others online and maybe start a relationship, upgrade to premium. The cost of membership plans varies from $19,95 to $37,95. Users who purchase one of them can get matched to other premium users, see visitors, contact others, and view all the photos. The company also offers a quality mobile app that is available on Google Play and App Store and has the same features as the desktop version of the website. 


AmourFeel is an international dating website that helps singles find and contact their matches, no matter what the distance between them is.

Premium members can also send mails, view private photos and videos, attach files to messages.
