The 4 Best Sri Lanka Dating Sites & Apps

Online dating in Sri Lanka isn’t a widely popular pursuit, but that doesn’t mean you should give up before you’ve even gotten started.

If you’re dating in Sri Lanka, you’ll likely find the most singles in Colombo, and you’re about to learn the 2 best dating apps to meet them.

You’ll also get the 2 best Sri Lanka dating sites to use if you’re living elsewhere, but want to meet beautiful Sri Lankan women.


Shaadi matrimonial site

Shaadi is one of the biggest online matrimonial sites in India, and their reach extends south into Sri Lanka.

It’s also one of the oldest - they’ve been matchmaking for over 20 years.

Shaadi is not geared towards casual dating - the goal of the site is marriage. You can opt to work directly with a matchmaker, or you can search for your own matches like you would on a site like AsianDating.

Writing your profile, posting photos, and searching for your perfect partner is all free. However, without a premium membership your ability to communicate is limited to sending “interest” to members - the equivalent of “liking” their profiles.

Here is what you get at the other premium membership levels:

And here is what a premium Shaadi membership costs:

Shaadi 2023 Cost*
3 months Gold - $33/month
3 months Gold Plus - $43/month
6 months Diamond - $24.83/month
6 months Diamond Plus - $32.33/month
12 months Platinum Plus - $23.25/month
3 months Select Shaadi - $255/month
6 months Select Shaadi - $182.50/month
*Prices may vary slightly by location

Download the Shaadi app on Google Play or the App Store.


AsianDating Sri Lanka

You’ll find plenty of intriguing Sri Lankan women on AsianDating, plus women from all over South and Southeast Asia.

This international dating site is operated by one of the biggest names in the dating biz: Cupid Media.

That means Asian Dating is a totally legit way for men all over the world to meet beautiful women. So if you aren’t currently in the country, it’s a great way to launch your search for the Sri Lanka woman of your dreams.

You can filter your matches by potential deal breakers like whether or not she’s willing to relocate to you, or the degree to which she speaks English:

asiandating search

You can register with the site and check out all your potential matches without a membership, but since free users can’t send messages to other free users, you’ll most likely want to upgrade. Many of the women who use AsianDating don’t have a premium membership.

Here are the differences between going Gold, or opting for Platinum:

Tinder definitely works best in bustling urban areas like Colombo, and it’s one of the most popular dating apps in Sri Lanka - particularly with the younger crowd (i.e. 20 to 30-somethings).

Simply swipe right on the Colombo singles you’re interested in, and left to pass. You’ll match with anyone who swiped right on your profile, and messages can then be exchanged.

It’s great free dating app, unless you find yourself trying to “like” more than 100 profiles within a 12 hour time span. Then it’s a little frustrating, as the app will cut you off and make you wait to “like” any more.

If patience isn’t your virtue, upgrade to Tinder Plus for the unlimited right swiping. You’ll also get access to premium features like Passport. Tinder Plus is just under $25 per month for 1 month, which may vary by location.

You can also go one step higher and purchase a Tinder Gold membership. You’ll get everything included at the Tinder Plus level, and the ability to see everyone who already right swiped on your profile in one single view.

From there you can like/pass profiles one at a time, or just instantly match with everyone you see there.

Tinder Gold ranges from around $18 for 1 week to $39.99 for 1 month, depending on your subscription length. The most expensive subscription is to Tinder Platinum, which includes the Priority Likes feature.

You’ll have the best luck on Badoo if you’re interested in meeting singles in Colombo.

The Encounters section is similar to Tinder; you’ll be presented with one profile at a time and you swipe according to your preference. Badoo chooses which matches you’ll see based on mutual interests.

Then there’s the People Nearby, which doesn’t need an explanation. You’ll see Colombo singles in your area, as well as any you may have crossed paths with recently. In this section, you can “like” profiles or simply send a message if you’re interested.

Badoo is one of the best options if you’re looking for free online dating in Sri Lanka. But if you want access to features that will make your profile stand out, you can choose to invest in Badoo’s “Super Powers”:

You can test drive them for a day or a week, or commit to anywhere from 1 month to a “lifetime” of access:
