I have joined Badoo and I like the fact that for most things I can do them for free. As with all of these type of sites though I am getting some spam emails. I am not sure why people send out these one line emails as they are obviously spam. I even replied to 2 for fun just to see what they were up to but no one replied back.

I have been on Badoo only for a few days now but I do like it better than POF. I just hope I can meet someone soon. I have been trying online dating on other sites for about 6 months now and haven't gone on one date yet. Cry

Does anyone have any pointers for using Badoo?

you are looking for pointers on badoo?

watch out for scammers. they are pretty easy to tell when you get a message from one since they are usually short and half of them do not make sense. also if the member contacting you is too good to be true then….. it is. when I first joined badoo I got messages from all of these hot chicks. I am in my forties and while i am fit and attractive i hadn’t even posted a picture yet so why would these hotties be contacting me? also why would chicks in their twenties who look like they listen to justin bieber want to contact an old fart like me anyways?

i have had good contacts on badoo and met a few chicks in their thirties but those scammers must think most men are stupid.

Any photos that contain a picture that looks like someone from a modeling agency took then they are most likely a scammer or some escort that is interested in you just logging into their site. This is also true of photos of any part of a woman's body. Most women who are looking for a relationship wouldn't put a photo of their butt!!!

Badoo is good in Europe especially in Britain and France but I found when I was in the United States traveling for 3 months there was not many attractive guys on it. I like to meet new people on the road and haven't had problems in my home country but in the United States I had poor luck. So I guess I would recommend it on one side of the Atlantic but not the other. Smile

If someone’s picture is too good to be true, then it is too good to be true. Be careful. The site is full of people who will make a run for your money.

Why do you say that Jane? Aren't most sites that are social or dating oriented like this?

The only reason I wouldn't use Badoo is because I live in the United States. We have other much more popular (at least here) dating sites. Badoo is mainly for the European market. From my understanding they do not have to many members located in North America.

Badoo has a lot of fake profiles. If you encounter someone who looks like they’re too good to be true, that’s because they are too good to be true. Be careful!

Tell me about it. I actually think a lot of guys post pictures of hot chicks and get their kicks by leading other guys on. This one girl was talking to me via email for over a week (like 20 messages) before I got suspicious. Her emails were long and it would have taken a long time to write these and they were personalized to me.

Things started to get weird when we started sending pictures of each other that were a little more revealing. I tell you I wasn't expecting the pictures I got and am not sure what is going on.

I guess this site (Badoo) is okay cause I have a couple of friends who are in it and the other one said that so far, she met professional and decent guys through this dating site. Personally, I don't want to try free dating websites when I was single cause I'm afraid of it and since anyone can just register. I met my husband through a dating website too called Eharmony which is very popular in the US and other parts of the world. I am in Dubai as an expat and so is my husband. I would say that eharmony is trusted and so far I have many friends who found their soul mates through that site.

I am from the UK and have nothing but horrible luck on Badoo. I tried Match before, along with POF whiched worked out okay until I ran out of chicks in my area to date. I figured I might as well give Badoo a try. It seemed to me on the site that the profiles are either really old or I could have sworn that I saw a lot of the same photos on POF but with different profile information. I tried to find a few exact matches to post here but I can't seem to find them at the moment.

For me Badoo has not worked out. I will be going back to POF.

The scammers always use the same pictures on multiple dating sites. I have seen the same picture but different profiles on Badoo, Match.com and Plenty of Fish. Even Facebook is not immune to this. I am not sure what these people are trying to accomplish as it is just a waste of their time and mine as I wade through the crap profiles.

Be very careful ladies when looking for that perfect man on dating websites.

I just found our a friend of mine`s HUSBAND's has his photo on badoo. He is from British Columbia. And wait there is more - he told his newly married wife he was return to his homeland to see family who were sick and has been sleeping with his cousin the entire time he has been there. Needless to say, divorce is in the works!

Definitely a trawling ground for scammers. Pay attention to the linguistic structure of the sentences..any one who says, "I WILL like to know you better' (instead of "would" is suss).
Ask 51 year old men why they are wanting to date 55 and over women.....one just said 'because young women only want one night stands". What a load of crap!
And beware "civil engineers...high income,,,,,speaks German, Italian. French. Spanish etc". As other posts have said, if it seems to good to be true, trust your instincts.

Neutral if folks come across a guy from Alloa looking for mrs right and single this man is nothing more than a lying smuck who cheats left right ane centre. I was seeing him from September 2014 to January 2015 where in December he told me hadnt been in touch because his gran died yet 14th December he was messaging a woman named Tracey behind my back saying she looked hot and messaging another named Stacey the 31st december while we where still together. He couldnt message or phone me as he said he was too busy working but could be on whatsapp eaely hours in morning and earn chattiest person and top voter of week this guy is a compulsive liar. He even wanted me to move nearer for his work. Where he stays with his mother as he is messaging Stacey, Celsea, and Tracey. It was easier to say he could be going home to see his family but actually the cheat.told me he had been in a longterm relationship would never cheat because it had been done to him by his ex with his mate then left with his kid.Truth now I think he was the cheat everything he did to me proves he is a scumbag. He also trawls facebook to find vulnerablw woman. Has two facebook accounts with same photo and its the same photo on his badoo account he is nothing more than a dirty disease carryin little clegg who doesnt care where it delves. Woman stay clear of this one he is a womanizer that appears charming, everything as fake about him as his profile.

Badoo is a word that has two possible translations:

1) Place for obesely fat women to try & find a date

2) Place for african scammers to suck in mug punters

It has no other use

Exclamation ...you must be joking...is it a good site????? yes it is.....for the many scammers,fakes and NO-BODIES tah can be applied into the site

It is totally manipulative and you are the one person who is paying the salaries of the people who can pretend to be 'enticements'

don't be a fool...engage with reality...don't pay a cent or a penny....Badoo is a waste of time, money...........jennifers and Sues' and several others of low educational values.. do NOT exist...they are in place to encourage you to pay more money

take on Plenty of Fish...you will encounter many freaks & fakes & thickos but it's cheaper,therefore of greater cost effectiveness...an expensive thicko is still a thicko nomatter what the result...it's cheaper to get something for nothing than to get nothing for 20bucks...the thicko's amoungst us will not comprehend that but who cares about them.....

remember, engage with reality you are better off out of a relationship than IN a figment of SOMEONE ELSE'S....

this site is a complete load of twaddle..that's polite for 'crap'

you will be contacted by others but the promise will be far off and elongated...the site is arranged to KEEP a user on-line,for as long a possible in order to provide this site with credence and some semblance of credibility.....one trick I applied was to visit each profile at random,and then wait for the responses...lo and behold they all,without exception clicked on my profile. This indicates that users are being lead into thinking that an interest is being generated by attraction,when in fact the interest in merely artificial and lead by BADOO.

BADOO will even resort to dirty talking via messaging,just to keep you,the user,on line.

Don't touch this site with a BARGEPOLE and most assuredly never, part with any payment...but if you do use the site...KEEP YOU WITS ABOUT YOU...BUT NEVER,NEVER part with your hard earned cash!!!

Wink Badoo is to be fair, a good site whether meeting up, dates, chats, friendship. You just have to be smart choosing whom you chatting with. My tip, always ask for different apps to use in chats like whatsapp, IMO, since they used geographic numbers identifying where they really are.
Downside, too many married men pretending to be single, scamming poor vulnerable ladies Razz. On the good side, if you are looking for fun, plenty of people there wanna fun. If looking for serious relationship, go for ages from 40's...most want settling down. Just be smart!! All dating sites have crooks anyways.

Of course, you can find an interesting person on badoo. But you must prepare yourself to spend some time on it to finally find it. Same as in real life. Just create conversations with as many as you can. Do not rely on one person because there is a high possibility that you or this person will lose the interest and will break the contact. Do not worry if someone don't respond to you. It's normal.

Why the questions where never ending and the world full of love care and importance vanished and left me just with pain lot of pain ....

I was been fooled cheated he made me a *censored* I wanted to report this to police station a scam a torched all blames on me all problem in me why he ended the relationship ....and the false explanation he gave was *censored* that his friend was talking to me taking his name lies lies lies that all was what I got I emailed the entire chat history to Himanshu sharma's wife and guess what she was not even shocked ....

She told me that's what he is and that what he been doing in his marriage and the reason she left for never coming back ....

Badoo customer service cannot be reached. Badoo is full of scammers and porn star pics. Badoo support is non-existent. Badoo makes you verify your existence every time you wish to log on with a message to your cell phone-thus causing you headache and money. Badoo should be named "Bad-Doo," but that is an insult to some good *censored*. Badoo has fake messages sent to you as soon as you sign up to try and get you excited about all the hot women who "want to chat." (They don't-you'll never hear from them again)
I want to kill my profile and leave the site forever, but I can't get the past the "Verification" process.

Other than that, Badoo is great as a time waster. You'll have better luck at the local soup kitchen in your neighborhood. LOL LOL

Be careful of European men with accent. They pretend to be civil engineer with a lot of money. They send you beautiful emails telling you they live you. They are in Cyprus building a hotel all of a sudden they encounter problems with money and are asking you for 45,000 promising to pay you back. Ladies please don't send any money to no one. Be smart because l didn't send a dime.

Does anyone have any pointers for using Badoo?



DON'T.

That's my tip.
I hadn't used badoo for over a year, and when I did I was looking for women 20-35 y/o. So I was a little surprised when a gay colleague of mine informed me that he had just received an email, claiming to be from my email address, through the badoo system trying to hook up with him. He also got one from himself via a defunct facebook account he'd had when he was 17 complete with embarrassing teenage picture. So don't sign up for badoo if you don't want them to use your account to harass your friends when you become inactive for too long.

I use it i like i met any guy friends. But many just want to see my boobs, which is what to be expected. I am proud to say, i have yellow fever. Meaning i LOVE Asian guy's and girl's. But many are very hot and have model bodies. Its very hard to tell if they are real or not, until you meet them in person. But other than that i love using badoo ^^

Let it be, i have been using it for over a year, met some awesome friends, and i love it but they are korean and i live in u.s i met them by flying over or them here to me. Or video call, i met my boyfriend of 8 months and continue to meet more friends ^^

I have had a similar experience with this site. Many scammers. It is somewhat depressing. I wait until I sense the person is not who they said they are. I am not convinced this site is a good site. I think it is not because of some of the people who have decided to try and be evil.

Are we talking about the same Badoo?? How on earth this site was voted a top-ranking site I'll never understand. For a start, the Tablet version is awful

RHS icons too small to read and illegible as it's light blue on blue background

Extremely limited chances of others viewing you unless you pay to be upgraded

I played encounters, said yes to EVERYONE (which is about 100 people) got THREE replies, and all they had to say for themselves was "How are you?"

Will only allow you to add certain bits of information from facebook, which I don't have and will prefer never to have a facebook page.

I'm a veteran at these sites. I could probably offer classes in how to write a profile. All the sites are basically the same - pay for the service, or get bombarded by loonies.

Question Did you guys at any point agree to date exclusively? I'm not saying what the guy did was right, but this sounds like the rant of a hurt woman. The topic is the dating site, or did I miss that. Sound like you did quite a bit of homework on the guy, but if you knew he had so many women, obviously he was dating. It's a dating site, so if you didn't agree to date exclusively, and you guys did not get married, where is the cheating? Sounds like you're upset because he didn't pick you exclusively. In the world we live in that is just the name of the game: be clear upfont with your choice of guy, or don't date. We have all had our share of disappointments. Women with cheats, and men with golddiggers and prostitutes. It happens. A lot.

Badoo is a great dating site. I've been in ALL of the sites, ALL OF THEM. I dated from these sites, most of the guys were just sex driven. Some were liars and bums.. Some were just after sex and said that which I appreciated so they understood when I said, I'm not into that. Suffice it to say, once I hit Badoo, I was very disillusioned . However, I received positive messages and I sent out a few messages... It was really pleasant interactions!! Finally, one guy stood out

I would not use badoo as a dating site. Most of the female profiles are fake. The site is full of scammers and very dishonest people. I tried it and all I got was messages that were clearly from fake girls the pics looked like they were from teen porn sites. Every girl had a sob story to tell, a lot of them were in west africa or ghana with a sick mother but after chatting for a brief time they ask for money to fly and meet. Are people stupid enough to send money to someone they never met? It was easy after a while to catch them out, ask them to facetime or webcam and excuse was very old phone with no camera or my laptop is old no webcam but send me money and I'll buy a webcam lol the people who run badoo are also very dishonest, they encourage girls with fake pics and when you report them they do nothing. Also the owners of badoo sell your information to other sites and online marketing company's. Be careful you'll find ine day your computer has been hacked because they share your infornation. Many better and honest sites out there or stick with tinder . Good luck

Alright here is the skinny on Badoo... there are 4 types on this app

1: hot as f**k chick that is really a dude sitting in an internet cafe in Africa

2: A 2 on a scale of 10 chick that wishes you'd find her hot. She will be sexually aggressive and you will think about it but then pass because you are just not that desperate

3: A tranny who wishes you'd be "open minded" again you will think about it, yet not for as long as with the 2 chick, and then pass.

4: A fun loving individual who is not taking the app too seriously and just wants to chit-chat - this lead to a cup of coffee and/or a drink. You will have fun and say "hey, it was kinda worth going through 1,2,3 just to be here at 4

This dating site is horrible, its full of scammers who make every effort to manipulate money from people. The lengths one guy went to try to get cash from me was disgusting. Stories of deceased wives, kids in boarding school because they are working abroad is a typical story. When I pretended I would send the money please give me his personal banking info, all of a sudden he couldnt access his account and requested I pay his suppliers directly. Its so annoying when a
nyone tries to treat me liike a fool! So, time to play his game with him,! Lol

I have joined Badoo and I like the fact that for most things I can do them for free. As with all of these type of sites though I am getting some spam emails. I am not sure why people send out these one line emails as they are obviously spam. I even replied to 2 for fun just to see what they were up to but no one replied back.

I have been on Badoo only for a few days now but I do like it better than POF. I just hope I can meet someone soon. I have been trying online dating on other sites for about 6 months now and haven't gone on one date yet. Cry

Does anyone have any pointers for using Badoo?



Ok I just got on it at a friends request had 2 guys in broken english tell me they were working in Syria really? what are the odds of that they also wanted access to my FB and my text number right away it is a scammer site to take advantage of gullible lonely females bewarned

It is not a good dating site. The thing is, they cannot be trusted. After joining Badoo App they contacted all my Facebook friends and invited them to join Badoo. This was without my knowledge or approval.

I immediately deleted the app, when I found out.

Stay away from this dating app. They will just take your network and start spamming.

I joined Badoo about 6months ago.nothing happened much. I picked a few women out and sent messages. None replied or those that did, where vague to say the least. Finally I had a response. Her profile said we lived in same city. So we struck up emailing. Things seemed fine. She started to phone me. And I had a call from an anxious mother. We even had Skype video chats. So her face and photos matched. I also noticed how her grammar improved, to almost perfect written English. I did some checks on her. The mobile area code did not match the area she lived.The post code was opposite side of city she lived and the street was spelt wrong! She claimed and showed me a flat on video call. But Google earth put her address as a bungalow in a very rural looking area.

She used the term "my dear" which also rang alarm bells. I joked on one video call that she used this term because she had lots of me. Which caused her to get angry. Then I got the must travel to see you. But my wages not been paid, because of the economical climate in Russia. The can you help me started. So is the site full of scam artist? Was she a scammer, or genuine? I sent her details of sending her money. But it was fake. I also emailed her about her address discrepancy and same with her phone number! I've had no reply from her in three days! So as she moved on, or my due diligence and mutual years working in security industry saved me? I think its case of buyer be ware. Don't send money or give your details. Mine asked for my home details so she could see my house on Google. I gave a local address. Just be careful. Use the internet to check out anything they tell you.

I'm a UK citizen and I had a few, mostly black males claiming to be living in Africa and under government tyranny wanting me to send them money for "help" for their sick mothers/brothers/sisters also had one Indian outright ask me for marriage and he would pay me £1000 for the honor... I doubt any of the names they used were legit but I reported the Indian to Customs, just in case he was dumb enough to use a real name and picture and told him if he has a £1000 I am sure he could pay for his own citizenship.

I did meet my ex on there though and we were together for years. I always make sure I am talking to the same person by adding them on Facebook or Skype. If they say they have neither of these they are usually hiding something they don't want you to know.

Alright here is the skinny on Badoo... there are 4 types on this app

1: hot as f**k chick that is really a dude sitting in an internet cafe in Africa

2: A 2 on a scale of 10 chick that wishes you'd find her hot. She will be sexually aggressive and you will think about it but then pass because you are just not that desperate

3: A tranny who wishes you'd be "open minded" again you will think about it, yet not for as long as with the 2 chick, and then pass.

4: A fun loving individual who is not taking the app too seriously and just wants to chit-chat - this lead to a cup of coffee and/or a drink. You will have fun and say "hey, it was kinda worth going through 1,2,3 just to be here at 4



The only awkward moment so far - checking out the neighbor lady from Level 5's profile who is apparently looking to date a guy.... whilst being married. That will get awkward in the elevator one of them days....

Not unless you just want to meet people for sex. Stupidly I believed it was where I could meet a man for a meaningful relationship/friendship..... oh was I wrong all people on this site want is someone to lie on there backs at the click of there fingers everyone I spoke to wanted to meet for sex after 20 minutes of chatting ... I'm not the most confident woman to begin with and I know I'm sad , pathetic and lonely .... but I also know I'm worth more than that!!!

Never ever install this scam application and never give your credit card details to them. Even after you delete the payments from your profile and uninstall the app, they keep charging you! Stay away, very bad application.

don't be a fool...engage with reality...don't pay a cent or a penny....Badoo is a waste of time, money...........jennifers and Sues' and several others of low educational values.. do NOT exist...they are in place to encourage you to pay more money

take on Plenty of Fish...you will encounter many freaks & fakes & thickos but it's cheaper,therefore of greater cost effectiveness...an expensive thicko is still a thicko nomatter what the result...it's cheaper to get something for nothing than to get nothing for 20bucks...the thicko's amoungst us will not comprehend that but who cares about them.....

remember, engage with reality you are better off out of a relationship than IN a figment of SOMEONE ELSE'S....

Badoo has dubious and unethical ways of charging your payment details without you knowing.

For example, I purchased something they call super-powers. I did this with full consent.

Then, while using the site, the option to buy credits for gifts was available. I clicked on one button and was instantly billed. I was given no options for how many credits I wanted nor was I shown a payment screen, nor was I informed of any automatic top-ups.

And yet an automatic top-up was applied once my credits fell below 200. Which happened in about 5 minutes with three or four gifts ( I can't remember the exact amount)

So I was instantly billed again.

I immediately informed customer service how basically told me I had no options. They insisted I would have seen the payment screen (I did not) and refused to uphold their own terms that a premium service could be cancelled and refunded within 14 days.

Zero stars for customer service.

I think its a sex encounter site which they should make clear ahead of time!

I'm not sure it's a dating site as the only word they use for meeting someone appears to be "Encounters".
I left it as that was not what I was looking for. Warning, it's extremely difficult to leave the site. I deleted my account and had to reset my password to do so and enter about 20 or more captchas as they make them extremely difficult to read and use symbols that aren't even on my computer keyboard. I think it's a sex encounter site which they should make clear ahead of time!

Absolutely not. This app shows you to people and people to you, 10,000 kms away more than any locals. They want money for everything and when you pay and bump yourself off they show you to everyone regaurdless of sex and sexual orientaion, as a straight male its very offensive to me that they are advertising me to gay males who then view me and send me messages.

In my solid opinion this app is nothing but a scam and most of the profiles are fake or the other side of the country.
DO NOT PAY FOR THIS APP.

Seriously irritating app tbh. You can set proximity preferences to filter the people who appear on the swiping screen but it doesn't stop people from fecking miles away liking you... I was getting 80-100 likes per day and 90% of them were the other side of the country! Filtering through all the like notifications takes forever and is just waay more admin than anyone can deal with...

it is a great site, the best one I tried and its free, all the rest required payment to do most things such as speak to people. after joining and talking to a free, I thought this is difficult as I was getting nowhere with any and conversations were short and boring and none of those women wanted the same as me, but then I spot a lovely looking smiley Asian girl who wanted the same as I did, long term relationship and marriage. I started a conversation that led to 10 day video chat and I decided to travel the 300 miles to meet her, and we got on very well, I proposed two months later, we are engaged to get married and are planning our wedding. So there you go.

I have used Badoo a few times and never actually went on a date. Needless to say we are not in an era where "dating" actually occurs. I have had "hey gorgeous" pop up on my phone constantly and have expected nice, neat conversation. Except I get "can I get a pic of you with less clothes on". We are in a "hookup" generation where it is nearly impossible to find someone who actually will go to the movies, or to dinner, or for a coffee and not have them expecting sex or a blowjob afterward. I can't even get a coffee meet because it's instant "wanna blow me?". Not to mention, as a woman, I get plenty of offers to be a "sugar baby" which is pretty much the exchange of sex for money (which is basically prostitution). I'm an old school gal who doesn't want to be part of the generation who does the "let's go for a late night drive after talking for a day". I have no trust that I won't become an episode of 20/20 or a 48 hour mystery. I'm currently dealing with a guy who lives in the same town as me. At first it was great. He seemed chill and accepting. Then he asked to hang out after work. I work a lot and don't have a ton of time to myself and I tried to explain this, but he ended up flying off the handle calling me a worthless *censored*. Now, I understand it's just one person but he threatened to come to my work place (DON'T EVER TELL SOMEONE WHERE YOU WORK UNTIL YOU'VE BECOME SECURE ENOUGH TO REALIZE THEY AREN'T CRAZY). So, always be cautious about what you say to someone or what info you give out, even if they seem chill at first. So, as far as a "dating" app, it is up with the times because of this "hookup" culture we are currently in. It's fine if you want to meet people and if you're into meeting them ASAP. But I'm cautious and this is my tale.

very bad experience, majority women pictures are fake , no quality of service, instead of member ship they collect up profile charges and many other daily basis and its more hi charges than membership fee,
strongly not recommended, their focus only to collect money, as soon as possible if you become member they collect at-least 100 USD, in first week or maximum 10 days by show you some charming feature, might be some girls like you and show you interest but they never reply you (because its Badoo,s own system to collect money soon)
They dont have customer support no, or emails etc only subscription related email will reply
strongly not recommended high level (www.badoo.com)

Honestly, do yourself a favour and stay away from this site/app. I tried it for about 5 weeks and even paid for the premium subscription to test the effectiveness of badoo to the max...and it falls down on so many points that I came to the same conclusion as many others here on the forum..

1. Badoo is purely a money-making scheme with little emphasis on connecting you with people
2. There are a number of dirty tricks they play to convince people to sign up to their subscriptions
3. There is little likelihood of success in badoo, even if you throw lots of money at it
4. Because of non-existent customer service, you will have great difficulty trying to get out of their recurring subscriptions and getting a refund once they've charged you is impossible.

Bottom line: basically a scam, with almost no recourse to customer support. Steer clear.

I joined Badoo few months ago and made an account. I am a transgender and I get hit on
a LOT and some guys even want to offer me money in exchange for meeting up with them. Truth be told I have never received any dime from anyone online. And yet some member reported me apparently for prostitution. With no warning, they blocked my account and I received an email informing me the nature of the complaint. I'm like wtf, how would they even verify that the member's report is true? It was that easy to be reported in badoo and get you blocked. I let it go, and few weeks later I tried making a new account. I tried 3 times, they keep blocking it apparently for breaking their guidelines on the first account. It felt very unfair to be judged with no credible basis. It felt dehumanizing and just aweful to be banned from something you cant even dispute about. Their decision was apparently final even if I emailed their support team. Yes, stay away from Badoo, it's not a great experience there. The company slams the door on to your face with no warning let alone legal basis. I am just appalled how a business treats its members very aweful.

I was blocked today as a new member of the site simply because I'm a lesbian. I asked them many times what I did wrong and they said no I broke the guildlines. But I didn't! They even called me fake 😕

Honestly unhappy about this. When will people stop their judgement around the LGBTQ community 😕
