Do you wish to find love in Poland? If you are there now or visiting soon, save yourself time and frustration by looking for your Polish soul mate in all the right places.
Sympatia translating to “sweetheart”, Sympatia is basically the Match.com of Poland. It’s hugely popular, so you would find tons of attractive Polish singles.
The site is in Polish, but you can use Google translate and filter your matches for women who speak English.
Signing up is free, but you will need a premium membership to freely contact other members. Although you will find women looking for everything from casual dating to marriage, Sympatia is considered a “serious” dating site which means that most of the women who pay for a membership are relationship-minded. If you are not already in Poland, consider letting your matches know that you are planning on visiting there soon near the beginning of your message exchange.
edarling is run by the same company that owns EliteSingles, eDarling is a popular dating site all across Europe.
It has an extensive (and mandatory) list of questions you will have to answer while setting up your profile which cuts down on the number of fake profiles you will find on the site, and it also means the women you will find on it are serious about meeting someone. Similarly, like Sympatia, you will need to invest in a membership to freely communicate with matches who catch your eye.
One thing to consider about eDarling is that it doesn’t allow you to browse through all the Polish singles in your area. You can only check out the matches provided daily by the site. If you want high-quality matches, especially if you are in your mid 30s+, eDarling is a solid option.
Tinder is still the reigning champion of dating apps; Tinder is as popular in Poland as it is everywhere else. You have likely got a Tinder profile already, tinder in a nutshell: right swipe = like, left swipe = pass, mutual interest = match, and message exchange.
Most Tinder users live in or close to urban areas, so if you happen to be in a more rural location stick with Sympatia. You will also probably have more luck there if you are seeking a long-term relationship or marriage. Although you will find Polish singles looking for an entire spectrum of relationships, Tinder isn’t most women’s “go-to” dating app when they are looking for Mr. Right.
The essential functions on Tinder are free swiping through profiles and sending messages to your matches. But free users only get 100 right swipes every 12 hours, and that can go quickly. For unlimited swiping power and these other handy features, upgrade to Tinder Plus.
Tinder Plus is worth the $9.99 per month (add $10 if you’re over 30) if you travel frequently, or live in a remote area and don’t mind driving into the city to meet people. You can use the Passport feature to change your location at any time.
Tinder Gold costs a bit more and includes all the features of Tinder Plus. You will also have access to a handy grid view where you can see all the local singles who have already swiped right on your profile. If you get a lot of matches, this can save you time as every right swipe in this feed will be an instant match.
In case, you are looking for casual dating anywhere in Europe, you are missing out if you don’t have a Badoo profile. You can swipe your way through tons of attractive local Polish women in the Encounters section, and be able to see any Badoo users who are currently nearby that share common interests.
There’s also a section where you can see any women you have crossed paths with during the day, provided you have some interests in common. When two users each like the other’s profile, messages can be exchanged.
You can browse through profiles and exchange messages for free on Badoo, or you can choose to unlock some “Super Powers” by upgrading to Badoo Premium. A subscription to Badoo Premium starts at $1.99 for 1 day and runs all the way up to $95.99 for 6 months. You can also buy lifetime access for $159.99.
In case, you rather focus on one high-quality match at a time instead of mindlessly swiping through profiles or perusing an endless list of Polish personals, you are going to love Once.
This dating app is designed for people seeking serious relationships as in, “find your soul mate, put a ring on her.”
There’s no browsing in Once. Instead, you will receive one match every day at the stroke of noon. You have 24 hours to either like or pass on it and when both halves of the match “like” each other, the two of you can begin exchanging messages. If you don’t decide in time, that match will expire and you will immediately get a new one.
If you want more than just a daily match, you can purchase “Crowns” and spend them to access these premium features. Once is a great dating app, but it may not be the fastest way to meet that special someone. It doesn’t have as many users as apps like Tinder and Bumble, and you only get one daily match.
If you are interested in meeting Polish singles in their 20s and 30s, and you live in a large city, you should be on OkCupid. That goes double if you live near a university then you really need an OkCupid profile.
Part of the same parent corporation that owns Tinder, OkCupid is a great place to find a casual to long-term relationship without having to pay for the privilege.
Of course, there is a Premium membership option, and it comes with some really useful perks. It’s called “A-List”, and there are two levels. A-List Basic starts at $19.95 per month, and A-List Premium starts at $34.90 per month.
A 3- or 6- month subscription will bring that monthly price down.
Not sure if it makes sense for you to upgrade when you can browse profiles and send messages for free.
Bumble is the perfect dating app for guys who want to match up with attractive Polish women, but don’t want the pressure of having to make the first move.
Once a match is formed by two people swiping right, only women can send the very first message.
Matches also have a short shelf-life; she’s only got 24 hours to send it. And if she does, you have only got 24 hours to reply to it. If the timer runs out on either side before a message is sent, the match expires.
But once each half of a match has sent a message, there are no more deadlines. The messaging window lasts until you move the conversation of the app.
Bumble has a premium membership called Bumble Boost that gives you a little leeway with those time limits. It allows you to add 24 hours to the countdown for any match that’s about to expire, in hopes she will get around to sending you a message.
Bumble Boost also allows you to re-match with any expired matches, so you don’t have to wait for someone you hoped would send a message to pop up again in your feed. There’s also a feature that allows you to see all the users who “liked” your profile already.
The premium membership costs between $8.99 for 1 week to $79.99 for 6 months.
This dating app is similar to Once, in that you only get a limited number of matches every day at noon. Guys on CoffeeMeetsBagel will get up to 21 “Bagels” each day, while women are presented with a curated selection of men who have already “liked” them.
Matches expire every 24 hours, so you have a limited time to “like” or “pass” on them. When there’s a mutual interest, messages can be exchanged for up to 7 days.
If you want more potential matches, you can browse through the “Discover” section. However, liking a profile in this section requires spending “beans”. Beans can be purchased in bulk or earned as you use the app.
There’s also a Premium membership option, which costs $34.99 per month. The biggest perk of subscribing is the “Activity Report” you will get for each bagel. It lets you know how often that person uses the dating app, which can give you valuable insight into how serious they are about meeting someone in person.
This dating app is most popular with relationship-seeking Polish singles in their 20s and 30s, although you will find users of all ages in varying numbers.
