Without wasting much of your time, I wrote about 6 top free dating sites in Nigeria where single people can find love and romance. They’re listed below as follows:
Badoo is one of the most popular dating sites in Nigeria. It’s a universal site that allows users from almost every part of the world. It has a website and a mobile app where the users can navigate through.
The reason why it’s number one on this list is that Badoo has a swipe feature for you to connect with prospective partners. You have two options to love a random picture of the opposite sex, or swipe off. Whenever there’s mutual connection, it becomes a match.
More so, Badoo uses your GPS to find potential matches near to you.
However, although it’s has several free features, there are some paid features on it.
Anyways, subscribing to the premium features is optional. It doesn’t stop you from finding love on the popular dating site in Nigeria.

Tinder is another online dating site where users can meet potential dating partners and love. With similar features to Badoo, you can swipe to the right or left based on your personal preferences.
Just like Badoo, it also has some paid features on it aside the free features. All the same, Tinder remains one of the top dating sites in Nigeria. However, you can only access Tinder through their mobile app, unlike Badoo.
Unlike Badoo and Tinder, Friendite is a lesser popular dating site in Nigeria. It was founded in 2012. However, Friendite is completely free to use.
