Many Indonesian girls on Indonesian Cupid are looking to meet foreigners and they won't turn you down if you say you are far away.The demographics of Indonesian Cupid is more middle class compared with Tinder.Unfortunately, there’s still a stigma working against trans men and women, especially in the romance department.

To give you a better understanding, I will describe the specificities of each dating app or website below: When Tinder started in Indonesia, most of its users were either foreign or Western-educated girls.

Its base has now expanded, but it is still the most trendy app to use.

Last year a college friend of mine came out as a transgender woman.

It was a shocking revelation to those of us who’d known a rowdy, raunchy frat boy in undergrad and suddenly saw the poised, purple-haired woman who’d been hiding for all those years.

I once wrote a review about dating Indonesian girls and where to meet them.

You can still read it here: Where to meet Indonesian girls?

Most of the information on the review is still valid, but it certainly needs an update on the world of online dating through websites or social apps such as Badoo, Indonesian Cupid, Tinder, We Chat, Skout, Beetalk, etc.

If you are looking for a great girl in Jakarta, online dating is by far your best chance.

Pros: ➝ Almost entirely free ➝ Easy to get several matches every day (but they won't meet you if you are a tourist) ➝ Thousands of Indonesian girls are using it, including many educated ones ➝ Not too many spam accounts or prostitutes or ladyboys Cons: ➝ I find it difficult to manage once you have more than 100 matches ➝ You cannot see which girls are online ➝ You cannot chat with a girl if you haven't matched with her already ➝ You cannot like more than 50 girls per day (or you must pay) ➝ You must connect using your Facebook information and pics (your friends on Facebook who are using Tinder will know that you are also a user) ➝ You can only see girls around you (unless you pay).

If you stay abroad, this means you cannot chat with any girl in Jakarta before you arrive.

If you’re a transgender dater — or someone open to dating a trans person — a free transgender dating site offers you a friendly niche community and nonjudgmental space for meeting romantic partners.
