se.match screenshot is one of the most well-known and trusted dating sites in the world, and it should definitely make your short list if you’re 30+ and in the market for a long term relationship.

While registering, setting up your profile, and browsing your matches are all free, you’ll need a paid subscription to contact any of the attractive Swedish singles who happen to catch your eye.

There’s one exception - you’ll be able to reply to messages sent from members who opted to add the “Unlimited Plus” service onto their paid subscription.

Subscriptions come in increments of 1, 3, and 6 months. Here is what you can do at each level of premium membership, and how much it costs:

Happy Pancake

While the first 2 entries on this list of popular Swedish dating sites are great for finding a serious relationship, check out Happy Pancake if you want to find something more casual.

A 100% free Swedish dating site, it has expanded from Sweden into Norway and Finland as well.

Happy Pancake also recently launched a free dating app, hoping to compete with Tinder in the European dating market.

You can search for interesting Swedish singles yourself, or describe your dream partner and have the dating site suggest compatible matches.

You’ll find all the standard dating site features on Happy Pancake, like messaging, “favoriting” profiles, sending “flirts” to indicate interest and seeing who visited your profile - and it’s all free.

Get Happy Pancake for Android or iOS.

Looking for the one? eDarling is all about “serious” dating.

The lengthy personality test and inability to exchange messages without a premium membership means the Swedish singles you’ll find on the site are taking their quest for romance seriously.

You’ll definitely want to set aside some time to take the personality test. How you answer will determine which matches you see, so it’s worth the effort. In fact, those are the only matches you’ll see - you aren’t able to freely browse through all the members on the site.

While most of the features require a subscription, you can do a few things for free on eDarling:

If you’re in a city with a lively singles scene like Stockholm, you should be on Tinder.

It’s most popular with Millennial singles, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t swipe through a few profiles even if you’re older.

After all, it’s one of the most popular dating apps in the entire world, so you owe it to yourself to at least check it out. It’s got a more casual vibe, but you’ll likely find people looking for longer term relationships, or even a spouse.

It couldn’t be easier to match with other singles - just swipe right if you like what you see, left if you’re not feeling it. You’ll match with anyone who “likes” your profile as well, and then you can start exchanging messages.

All of that is free, but you’re capped at “liking” up to 100 profiles in 12 hours. Once you hit your quota for the day, you’ll have to wait to swipe right on any more.

Or you can unlock unlimited right swiping by upgrading to Tinder Plus for around $7.99 for one month.

Tinder Plus comes with handy perks like changing your location via the Passport feature, unlimited swiping and limiting both who sees your profile and what details are revealed.

If you want all that, but you wish you could also see who has already “liked” your profile, go for Tinder Gold. You’ll find a special section where every single profile you swipe right on will be an instant match.

You can even swipe right on them all at once, which could potentially save you a bunch of time if you get a lot of matches. The cost of Tinder Gold is as low as $8/month when you commit to a year up front.

The most expensive subscription, Tinder Platinum, starts around $29 per month. That includes the ability to message before matching and unlocks the Priority Likes feature. For more information on all the upgrade options, check out our Tinder review!

Tinder can be used online, or get the app on Google Play or the App Store.

Like Tinder, Badoo is a solid option if you’re not looking for anything particularly serious. You’ll get the best results on it if you’re in a large city like Stockholm.

In the Encounters feature, you’ll be presented with a profile Badoo thinks you’re compatible with, based on mutual interests. You can like or pass on it, and you’ll see the next one. When you like each other, the message exchange is off to the races.

There’s one other place to place to check out singles - People Nearby. As the name implies, these are singles in your area whom Badoo thinks you’d like to meet. You’ll also find out if you’ve crossed paths with them, plus when and where it happened.

You can “like” profiles here as well, or just send a message and see if they respond.

Badoo is a great free dating site and app; all the features you need to meet people in real life don’t cost a dime. But if you want to boost your odds, you can subscribe to these “Super Powers”:
