The Top 5 Dating Sites & Apps To Try In Turkey!

As is the case in many Middle Eastern countries, online dating in Turkey hasn’t exploded in popularity the way it has in other parts of the world. But that doesn’t mean you can’t meet beautiful Turkish women online!

Our team of dating experts has been helping singles do exactly that since 2009 by optimizing their profiles, then swiping and messaging on their behalf. 

We’ve experienced first hand how all the dating apps and sites have evolved over the years, giving us a deep understanding of the unique benefits and drawbacks of each one.

If you’re looking for the highest quality matches, these are the 5 best Turkish dating sites and apps to try!



One of the oldest dating sites in Turkey, Siberalem has been around since 2009.

It’s packed with beautiful Turkish women, but unless you speak Turkish you’ll need a little help in the translation department.

You can download the app or take a look around on the site for free, but you’ll need a Gold membership to exchange messages.

Credits can be purchased and used to highlight your profile, see who has “liked” you, and send your message with “priority” status.

You can also earn free credits by signing in to the site or app every day, completing your profile, uploading a photo, etc.

Gold members can exchange unlimited messages, get priority listing in search results, send free winks, and use the site ad-free.

The cost of a Gold membership varies depending on how much time you commit to up front. You can get 1 week for $8.99, 1 month for $15.99, or 3 months for $25.99.

If you’re looking for beautiful Turkish women, Muslima is a great place to start.

Backed by Cupid Media, it’s a legit international dating site that helps Muslim singles find long term relationships and marriage, and it follows Islamic rules on courtship.

You’ll find plenty of high quality matches, many of whom want to meet Western men and relocate. So if you’re not in Turkey, you can use all the detailed search filters to find women who are open to moving elsewhere.

Although you can look around on the site for free, you won’t be able to exchange messages with Turkish women who are also “Standard” members - you’ll need a premium membership for that:

Many of the women on Muslima don’t have a paid membership, so to get the best results you’ll want to invest in one yourself.

Dating in Istanbul, Ankara, or another big international city in Turkey? You need to be swiping on Tinder, especially if you’re under 35.

Tinder is one of the most popular dating apps in Turkey, but it’s not the best choice if you live in a remote area as the majority of people on Tinder live in big cities.

Tinder is easy to use - to “like” a profile, swipe to the right. To pass, swipe to the left. Anytime someone also “likes” your profile, a match forms and you can exchange messages.

While you’ll find some Turkish women looking for their soulmates on Tinder, overall it has a more casual dating vibe. But no matter what type of relationship you’re looking for, it’s still worth checking out who’s in your area.

Plus, swiping, matching, and messaging is free, so what have you got to lose?

The only hitch is you’re limited to how many profiles you can “like” every 12 hours. Once you hit 100, you’re temporarily cut off.

You can either wait it out, or upgrade to one of Tinder's premium memberships. You can choose from Plus, Gold, and Platinum. All levels include unlimited right swipes.

Happn is one of the best dating apps in Turkey if you live in or near a huge city.

Like Tinder, Happn lets you scroll through profiles of all the Turkish singles in your area, but this app takes things one step further. You’ll only see profiles of women who’ve been within a set distance of you at some point during the day - you can expand that radius up to 90kms.

Check out your timeline, and when you see someone who intrigues you, “like” her profile. A Crush will form when she “likes” yours as well, and you can message with all your Crushes.

Happn also shows you all the details regarding how many times you and each match have been in the same area, as well as where and when.

And if she’s in your area right this second? You’ll get a notification. Of course, you won’t know *exactly* where she is, for security purposes. But if you play your cards right, you could go from messaging to meeting face-to-face, just like that.

If you want an impromptu date, check out the “I’m Free To” feature. Choose what you’d like to do from these activities:

Happn date suggestions

The date suggestion will be open for a 6-hour window, and anyone who comes in proximity can spend one credit to say “I’m in.” You can also check out other users date suggestions, and respond accordingly.

You get free credits by doing things like referring friends, or you can buy them starting around 10 for $1.99.

There’s also a premium membership option, which comes with perks like seeing who “liked” your profile and sending a “Hi” to 10 people per day. That’s a nice perk, since you can send it before she’s liked you - and hopefully spark her interest.

Happn crush time

The other benefit to becoming a “Happn Essentials” member is you get to play CrushTime more often. This is a little pop up game that shows you 4 profiles. One of them has “liked” your profile, and if you guess who it was the two of you match.

If you guess wrong it counts as a “like”, so you can match that way as well if the interest is mutual.

Here is what the upgraded membership costs:

OkCupid screenshot

If you fall into the “singles in their 20s to 30s” bracket, or that’s who you’re looking to date, OkCupid is a viable option. You’ll have the best success if you’re in a larger city, or if you’re near a university or college.

One reason OkCupid is so popular is that all the good stuff, namely checking out your matches and sending unlimited messages, is free.

But you’ll want to put some finishing touches on your profile, because she has to “like” it in order for your first message to head straight into her inbox.

If she hasn’t expressed any interest in you yet, your profile gets displayed where she’ll see it - and hopefully “like” it - when you send her a message.

If you want to see who has already “liked” your profile and send messages to those women, invest in an one of the premium memberships.
