Dating apps are more common in these times and is more accepted as compared to 10 years ago, especially in Saigon. It opens a lot of doors for those who are looking for their perfect match regardless if you’re an expat or a local looking to find someone special. Along with the opportunity to find “the one” also comes a few challenges along the road. Be warned, some people on these sites or apps are looking for a more casual set up, or worse, are not who they made their profiles appear to be.
For those with busy schedules (or with less than ideal social skills), online dating is becoming a viable option in a city packed with thousands of eligible singles. It may not always be a walk in the park but it’s definitely not difficult to find potential partners using phone apps like Vietnam Cupid, Tinder, OkCupid and Badoo. These apps feature excellent filtering options so you specify your preferences.
Those looking for a fling may find things to be relatively more casual and easier in Western countries since many locals are online to seek serious relationships.
