Top List: The 6 Best Spanish Dating Sites & Apps
Dating in Spain turning into a frustrating experience? If you can’t find the type of attractive, intriguing Spanish singles you deserve to meet, you need a new strategy.
Give one (or more) of these 6 best Spanish dating sites and apps a try, and start meeting higher quality matches!
And if you want to meet Spanish speaking singles elsewhere, click here.
Meetic.es is part of an international network of dating sites run by the same corporation that owns Match.com.
Signing up with Meetic.es also gives you access to all of the country-specific Meetic sites across Europe, each one in that country’s native language.
It’s a paid dating site, which means it’s a great place to find Spanish singles who are serious about meeting someone. The monthly fee also cuts down on the number of fakes, flakes, and scammers that tend to flock to free dating sites.
You can sign up and browse profiles without having to provide your credit card information, but you’ll need a paid subscription to contact any of the eligible singles who catch your eye.
Meetic.es offers several levels of membership, with varying access to features. Here are all the details:
Meetic.es is in Spanish, so if your language skills aren’t quite up to par you’ll either have to rely on Google translate or try one of the other options on this list.
Download Meetic.es from Google Play or the App Store.
If you’re into matches based on in-depth personality tests, Parship.es is the dating site for you.
Creating a profile involves answering a (long) array of multiple choice questions, and doing more abstract tasks like selecting which image in a selection best represents you.
It’s not a quick process, but the hour or so it takes to get up and running on the site is a good deterrent for anyone who’s not serious about online dating. This Spanish dating site won’t allow you to message anyone until you’ve completed 50% of your profile.
You’ll receive “partner suggestions” based on compatible answers to the personality test, but you won’t be able to see photos of your matches as a free member, unless they specifically grant you access.
Premium members can freely exchange messages, see any photos that users have made public, search for Spanish singles in your area, and see who’s visited your profile.
You also get a “Contact Guarantee.” In a nutshell, Parship.es will give you another 6 months of premium membership for free if you don’t make contact with any users within your first 6 months of purchasing one.
Premium memberships start around £29.90 for one month, with a price break if you sign up for 3 or 6 months at once.

If you’re looking for a long-term relationship or marriage, in your 30s+, and living in a relatively large city, eDarling is practically a must.
Owned by the same company behind the popular dating site EliteSingles, eDarling relies on an extensive personality quiz to match you with compatible Spanish singles.
The site requires an investment of both time and money - all the questions on the lengthy test require an answer, and you’ll need a paid subscription to contact your matches.
Here is what you can do at each membership level:
Free users will receive up to 7 matches daily, but you can only “like” their profiles or send a smile as a way of indicating interest.
eDarling does have one potential drawback, though. Unlike Meetic.es, this Spanish dating site doesn’t allow you to freely browse through profiles. Instead, it relies on its proprietary matching algorithm to send you “partner suggestions”.
If don’t have a ton of time to swipe through profiles, having your matches selected for you could be ideal. But if you want the freedom to see all the singles in your area, stick with Meetic.es.
Download eDarling.es from Google Play or the App Store.
If you want to meet attractive Spanish singles but you’re not necessarily looking for a long-term relationship, fire up Badoo.
One of the hottest casual dating sites throughout Europe, Badoo will show you any users with similar interests that are currently nearby you. If you both “like” each other’s profiles, you can potentially go from message exchange to meet up in mere minutes.
There’s also an area where you can swipe right or left through profiles of singles in your area, ala Tinder.
Messaging and swiping is free, but Badoo also offers premium features like these for a small investment:

Odds are good that anyone in their early 20s to late 30s has at least heard of Tinder.
And if you’re single and dating in Madrid, or any other large city in Spain, you owe it to yourself to swipe a few profiles. You’ll likely find a few hot locals you want to swipe right on, match, and message.
While it’s got a reputation as a more casual dating app, more and more people are looking for serious relationships, and even marriage, on it.
If you don’t think you’ll be swiping right on more than 100 profiles in a 12-hour time span, you can get away with using the app for free.
But if you’re doing a whirlwind tour of Spain, think about upgrading to Tinder Plus. The Passport feature allows you to change your location and swipe through profiles of users anywhere in the world. That means you can start arranging dates in Barcelona before you’ve left Valencia.
Tinder Gold unlocks the "see who likes you" view, and Tinder Platinum comes with message before matching privileges. You'll also benefit from Priority Likes, because your profile gets seen first.

Download Tinder from Google Play or the App Store, or use it online.
Happn is another dating app that conveniently lets you know when someone incredibly attractive is near you right now.
When anyone who meets your search criteria comes within the distance parameters you set (up to 90 kilometers), their profile appears in your feed. You’ll also see a timeline of who’s crossed your path, when, where, and how often.
Simply “like” any profiles that catch your eye, and you’ll form a “Crush” with any singles who like you back. Once that happens, you can exchange messages.
Since your Happn match queue is 100% based on people who pass within relatively close proximity to you, it’s best for people living, working in, or visiting heavily populated areas.

Looking For Spanish Speaking Singles?
Meetic.es, Parship.es and eDarling.es are all three great options for finding Spanish speaking singles in Spain.
But if you live elsewhere, try one of these top 3 dating sites and apps for singles who speak Spanish.
International Cupid is dedicated to connecting singles from all over the world, and it has a large number of users in both Latin America and Europe.
Plus, it’s in the Cupid Media empire - a huge player in the online dating industry.
Creating a profile, viewing photos of attractive singles all over the world, and using the detailed search criteria to find your perfect match is all free.
You can also respond to messages from users with a premium subscription, but you can’t initiate a message exchange with a free membership.
You have two premium membership levels to choose from, Gold or Platinum:
A Gold membership costs $29.98 for 1 month, $59.99 for 3 months, or $119.98 for 1 year.
A Platinum membership costs $34.99 for 1 month, $69.98 for 3 months, or $149.99 for 1 year.
Download International Cupid from Google Play.
Chispa is a Tinder alternative designed specifically for Latino singles all over the world. It’s available in both Spanish and English.
Launched as a joint venture between Match group (of Match.com and Tinder fame) and Univision, Chispa has limited functionality compared to other apps but a steadily growing user base. It’s a great way to meet someone special, or to make friends and practice your Spanish skills.
The app is completely free, and has a format similar to Tinder in that you swipe left or right through profiles.
Download Chispa from Google Play or the App Store.
If you want to meet beautiful Spanish speaking women, check out Colombian Cupid. It’s popular with women in their early 20s to early 30s who want to meet Western men. And if you also speak Spanish… who can resist?
Like International Cupid, Colombian Cupid is part of the Cupid Media family and the premise is basically the same.
You can create your profile, browse for matches, and respond to messages as long as they were sent by paid members. But you’ll find many of the women are using the site for free, so if you want to send messages to whomever you’d like, you’ll need to upgrade so they can reply to you.
Here is a comparison chart of the two premium membership levels:
A Gold membership is $34.99 for 1 month, $69.99 for 3 months, $140.04 for 1 year.
A Platinum membership is around $39.99 for one month, $79.98 for 3 months, $159.96 for 1 year.
