Best Turkish Dating Apps

Here Are the 10 Most Popular Dating Apps in Turkey

1. Okcupid

OkCupid is one of the best dating apps in Turkey. It is available in both English and Turkish. After you fill in your personal information, hobbies and occupation on OkCupid, you can talk as much as you want when you match with someone. However, we still recommend answering at least 20 personal questions because the app will use your answers to find someone who shares your views and values.

OkCupid uses a mutual matchmaking system to bring like-minded singles together, but you can also send a first message to anyone you love to get their attention. Your message will appear at the top of the profile when that person views it. Then open!

2. Blendr

Blendr is one of the most used dating apps in Turkey. It can be an ideal choice for those who are looking for a free dating app.

Blendr uses your mobile device’s location services to connect you with the fun singles closest to you who share your interests and want to chat it up! 

To register on Blendr, you must first download the app from the App Store or Google Play. When you install the app, it will ask you for permission to use your device’s location which is the basic for using the People Nearby function.

Please note that the members of Blendr are like-minded individuals looking for casual relationships and one-night stands. It’s rare that you find someone looking for a serious relationship on the site. 


3. Tinder

Tinder, which is the most popular dating app in the world, is also popular in Turkey.

It is easy to use. You can only swipe left or right to like or reject the suggested matches. For those who you are interested in, you can also send “Super Like” which means “I like you very much” to attract their attention.

Thanks to its large user base, what I like this app most is that the matches are endless!


4. Hawaya

Hawaya is an online dating app that helps Muslim singles find their life partners. Its members are mostly from Muslim countries like Egypt, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Qatar, and Jordan.

Hawaya matches people according to their own interests and cultural affinities and it is best for Muslim singles who are looking for serious relationships and deep commitments.

You can sign up with the app with Facebook as well as with a phone number. After verifying whether you are a real user with face verification, you can log in to the app.

With Hawaya, you’ll meet real people of the opposite sex. In the app, you can only see verified profiles and you can make your blurred photo visible only to the people you prefer to communicate with. It also has a witness feature which allows you to invite a friend or family member in your chat as a witness.


5. Interpals

Interpals is an app where you can make new friends, practice languages with native speakers and meet travelers. It is used a lot as a foreign chat application. However, it is possible that you will encounter many Turkish people in the app.

If you want to open a different window to your life, you can take advantage of the Interpals application. There are many people who want to improve their language and date at the same time on the platform. All you have to do is to sign up with the app.

6. Azar

Azar is more of a video chat app than a dating app. Without waiting for a match, you can swipe the screen to the left and start a video conversation with the person you like. At the same time, you can add different backgrounds, effects and filters while making a video call. You can also add hashtags and select your mood before matching.

With this app, you can filter who you want to meet by choosing gender and region. Also, the new Azar Lounge will be your place to browse through the community for like-minded people. Take your time to pick out the users who grab your attention, and send them likes or messages when you’re ready to connect.


7. Jaumo

With more than 50 million downloads, Jaumo is one of the most popular dating apps in 2022. It boasts of around 30 million users currently, and a reach spanning across the USA, Germany, Turkey, and Brazil.

Jaumo employs the same suggested match format as other dating apps such as Tinder and Happn. Instead of a swipe, it is called Zapping. In the app, you can swipe right if you like someone and swipe left if you’re not interested. Conversely, you can tap on the checkmark or the X mark to make your choice. If someone you’re interested in is also interested in you, then a match is made. 


8. Happn

Happn is also preferred by many people as a widely used dating application in Turkey. With this app, you can find many people around you that you may neglect before.

In this app, you open your location and match with the people your path crosses. Your location won’t be viewed by others. Likewise, you cannot see any user’s location information, too. The app will only show you the people who are close to your current location. When you send a like to someone, the other party will be notified.

The application, in which video calls can also be made, is based on the principle of reciprocity. Therefore, you will not receive messages from someone who is not interested in you.

9. Badoo

With more than 400 million members, Badoo is a very crowded dating app with different nationality profiles. So, it is also a good dating app for Turkish who want to end their loneliness.

Like Happn, Badoo can help you discover the people near you through its ‘People Nearby’ search function. You may also match with members who are quite far away through “Badoo Encounters,” which is a roulette-type matchmaking feature.

10. Bumble

Bumble, which is among the most used dating apps, is the female version of Tinder. In Bumble, women choose first and they start the conversation. If the guy doesn’t text within 24 hours, he forfeits potential dates. If you’re a procrastinator, Bumble might not be for you.

Bumble works based on your location. So you are not connecting with someone who is far away, you are connecting with someone closer to where you are in order to establish a relationship. The difference of Bumble is that it also has a “BFF” feature that allows you to search for friends instead of relationships.
