Tinder

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Tinder

I just read where Tinder is all the rage in Australia for picking up '' partners. '' I cannot use it, cause I still have one of those ''dumb'' phones, but do the Cambodians use it?

Tinder is huge in many places in the world. Apparently all the athletes at the winter Olympics were using it to hook up with each other.

Never heard of a Cambodian using it. I think here the good local girls are on Facebook and the sex workers use Badoo as another way to find clients. That is about as tech savy as they get. Even Okcupid isn't really used here despite being very popular in many places around the world.

Maybe some of the NGO intern women looking for flings while they are in town for a couple of months are using Tinder?

Don't use it in Cambodia. It'll show you only the tourists.

It is!

I believe it's the best option (as as free online dating goes) to meet Western chicks here in Cambodia.

I have it installed. Never use it.

A few dudes at a hipster expat party where saying they've used it to line up dates.

There are ALL SORTS of Cambodian chicks that use Badoo, not just taxi girls.

Seriously, many are working professionals and mess around on Badoo while at work, etc.

The bad news (for me at least, LoL) is that it seems to have a bunch of ladyboys on there now. No biggie, they're easy to spot and avoid.

And many of the Phnom Penh bar girls on there are quick to tell you they work at a bar.

Many good catches to be found on Badoo.



Another good one to look into is called "Twoo".

Same same but different.

Duncs - here's how it works - if you look at someones profile, you can "like" them. If they also see your profile and "like" you, then the mutual "like" allows you to get in touch with each other. So you better not be butthead ugly, or else you will have no chance!

Even then it doesn't necessarily mean they'll talk to you or agree to meet up.
