If you currently live in Saudi Arabia or you’re going to move there and you’re looking for love, Saudi Arabia Dating is a site which might come in handy. It’s Saudi-specific, so you won’t have to search through hundreds of profiles for people who live on another continent. The site has an intricate but very useful advanced search feature to help you locate your ideal partner, as well as matching you to members based on your personal preferences, but what are the chances of finding a date?
Well this is not necessarily the easiest question to answer. In part, it depends on how flexible you are and where you live. If you’re in a major city then you ought to find plenty of options but if you live somewhere more remote and aren’t willing to relocate (or have a long distance relationship) then things get a bit trickier. When we performed basic searches we had an acceptable number of results, although many of the profiles seemed to have been duplicated so, in fact, our 80 or so possibilities were far fewer. We’d recommend performing a similar search for yourself to see how you fare.
Basic (which is to say “free”) members can only perform the basic search, which is essentially just the age range you’re interested in and the gender of the person you’re looking for. Gold members can perform a much more extensive search which includes details such as eye color, hobbies and religion.
Once you’ve located a few members who interest you, what can you expect? The profiles are fairly basic and include the standard information you’d hope for, plus a few photos. Members can include videos on their profiles, although in our experience very few did. Photos are of variable quality although most are sufficient to get a good idea of how someone looks.
You can add members to your “favorites” list to check on them at a later date, email them, send a card, request a chat or just “wink” to show them you’re interested in getting to know them better. Unfortunately free members are very restricted by what they can do, and will only be able to send unlimited emails once they’ve upgraded to a gold account.
Upgrading isn’t particularly cheap, especially considering the fact that the site doesn’t seem to have a lot of paying members. As such it’s quite hard to recommend it over some of its competitors. If you do find a person who really seems to suit you then it may be worth joining for a short period so you can get in touch, although if they’re not a paying member then you may not get a reply. Thankfully there’s an option to see members who have been online within the last 24 hours so you can target who you talk to and make sure you’re engaging with active members.
Saudi Arabia Dating is only really going to appeal to people living in Saudi Arabia. Of course that’s fine, but the limited membership numbers means that you’re going to be quite restricted when it comes to actually finding dates. If you are planning on using the site then you’ll almost certainly need to upgrade your membership to Gold or VIP status, but that’s for you to decide. We’d recommend performing some searches and seeing who is online before making any financial investments.
