The tagline on LatamDate says it all: “International dating site – find love in Latin America”. Basically if you’re looking to find love with a Latin American single then you should definitely give LatamDate a try. And, let’s face it, who wouldn’t be over the moon to be introduced to their very own Jessica Alba or Shakira!
Established in 2013, LatamDate is part of the Qpid Network, which features dating sites with Chinese, Russian and Southeast Asian singles. Therefore, it’s safe to say that it’s a site operated by a company who are not new to the online international dating game.
If the homepage is anything to go by, LatamDate promises “authentic profiles of quality Latin American singles” and boasts numerous features to make your search for Latin American love seem seamless as possible.
First, there’s the EMF mail which allows you to communicate with potential matches through the site. They say it can overcome language and cultural barriers but quite what that means we’re not sure. Perhaps it involves a translation service like their three-way phone call offering.
Then there’s the rather intriguingly named Live Chat, Love Call and Video Show. All of which sound rather sordid but are quite harmless in their nature and provide other ways to communicate.
A rather nice touch that LatamDate have adopted is that they won’t accept profile from ladies directly. Instead, wannabe members have to submit applications to one of their various agencies. Upon approval, the new profile is made live. This is at least one way to reduce the amount of scammers found on the site and a lesson to dating sites everywhere.
Lastly, LatamDate promises anti-spam security protection and technical support from its professional team of staff – definitely bonuses in the online dating world.
LatamDate.com offers a free membership but this is extremely limited when it actually comes to what you can do. In fact, once you’ve signed up and have logged in with your free account, all you can really do is browse profiles.
As soon as you find a lady you like, you’ll inevitably have to upgrade your membership and purchase some ‘credits’ to make contact with her. Not the end of the world if you’re serious but don’t expect to get all that much out of your ‘free’ membership.
How it Works:
One of the cool things about LatamDate .com is that you can login directly using your Facebook credentials, which saves you a significant amount of time. However, you might not want your friends and family knowing that you’re looking for love on such a site, so check what it’s going to post on your profile beforehand.
A safer bet is to sign-up for an account by filling out the short form on the homepage. Full name, date of birth, email address and desired password are all you need to get started with your free account.
Just remember that to actually do anything useful with the site you need to buy credits. These will enable you to take advantage of all the features such as EMF Mail, Live Chat, Love Call, Video Show and more.
There’s also a virtual gifts service that will see an animated gift item sent to the lady of your choice. Each to their own but we don’t think is the way to a Latin American woman’s heart.
If you’re a little shy when it comes to international dating then you’re advised NOT to use your Facebook login on this site. Of course, it may seem convenient and save you a few minutes in time, but there may be privacy repercussions. Take a few minutes and create a bespoke login for yourself.
Also, be fully prepared to get your credit card out if you want to actually start communicating with any of the women you find on LatamDate.
If you’ve made up your mind that a Latin American woman is for you then LatamDate.com should be worth your while. Unlike many other sites, their pre-screening process limits the amounts of scammers and should ensure you have a hassle-free experience.
