Badoo is a fun dating site that works like the other swipe sites out there. You spend your time looking at pictures and deciding whether or not you think the person is attractive. They also get the chance to swipe on you. If you both give each other a heart, you get connected to talk to each other. It works really well on both PCs and devices. You can use a few different techniques to make yourself stand out to the people you really like. You’ll always have the option of sending gifts or crushes to people. This lets them know that you’re really interested, but it also costs money to do.
Most of your time on Badoo will be spent in the Encounters section. This is where you get all of the photos to check out. Most of the people will have around four or more of them. You can make a decision based on the first one you see, or you can scroll through the others they’ve posted. It’s also where you can choose to send along your crushes. The more people you rate, the more accurate your matches get. If you keep liking men or women with similar features or ethnicities, then those are the ones you’re going to continue to get.
Badoo is always a stable experience. It does what it says and it does it well. You never have to deal with faulty code. It’s not overly robust, so it won’t slow down your system, either. You can use it without having to deal with any headaches. The people who use it seem to be pretty serious about meeting up. You’re pretty much likely to get into an actual conversation with someone that you match. It’s a great sign for any site like this. So many others tend to get used just to pass the time.
