➝ Fast chatting application ➝ Mostly serious girls who are interested in relationships ➝ Detailed profiles Cons: ➝ The free version is too restricted (not a problem if you can afford 25$) ➝ No mobile app ➝ Many girls have limited English proficiency (especially outside Jakarta) Badoo used to be the best dating website in Indonesia but it is clearly not as popular as it used to be.
It still has a large number of users though: I checked on 15 December 2016 at 7pm and there were 522 women online in Jakarta (vs 537 on Indonesian Cupid). Badoo attracts 99,9% of Indonesian girls, from all background.
Pros: ➝ Between 500-1000 Indonesian girls online at any time, but thousands more who were active in the past week or month (you have filters to do that).
➝ Possibility to look for girls in other countries (Thailand, Philippines, etc) ➝ Good website interface, easy to use and fast.
I know some guys who've met dozens of girls using it.
Of course, you need to create an Instagram account and to upload interesting pictures regularly.
To give you a better understanding, I will describe the specificities of each dating app or website below: When Tinder started in Indonesia, most of its users were either foreign or Western-educated girls.
Its base has now expanded, but it is still the most trendy app to use.
Even if you use it for a month or two, it is still easy to see which girls are online among those you've chatted with before.

Most of the information on the review is still valid, but it certainly needs an update on the world of online dating through websites or social apps such as Badoo, Indonesian Cupid, Tinder, We Chat, Skout, Beetalk, etc.
If you are looking for a great girl in Jakarta, online dating is by far your best chance.
Online prostitution on Badoo is, unfortunately, a problem.
