Cupid.com is an online dating platform where you have the possibility to actually search for the one who will answer positively to all your preferences. Their matching algorithm is simple and their recommendations include mainly people that live in the same area as you do. Still, to compensate, you have access to the entire database and you can search and browse, for free.
As a full time member, you have access to couple of interesting features that can promote you on top of the search results and make your profile more attractive, but beware as such a big platform usually attracts scammers. There have also been reports of fake accounts (mostly beautiful women) used to attract new viewers that are possible paying customers.
Features we appreciate and consider useful, besides the advanced search form, are the interface which is simple and easy to use, and the fact that you have access to mobile apps for iOS, Windows Phone, and Android. Thus you have unlimited and unrestricted access to your account wherever you are.
The registration and account activation are simple and don’t necessitate much time. At your first login you’ll be prompted to add more information to your profile and at least one picture so other users can find you. It’s also easy and quick to have a complete profile as there are not many boring options.
Cupid.com is a large and vast community with people from all over the world. There are no restrictions of age (unless those concerning legality), sex, or preferences. Gay and lesbian couples as well as people with bisexual preferences are welcomed so anyone can find the right match for a fun flirt or a long lasting relationship. Beware of fake account and scammers – these are mostly female accounts created to attract you on other sites where you’ll have to pay for other services.
One of the most important features in a dating site is the search form. Cupid.com gives you access to the entire database and you can conduct searches based on multiple filters like age, gender, marital status, mood, and so on. Web chat and unlimited messaging to any member of the platform are great features but these are available only to paying members.
Other features for paid memebers only include an option to view the complete list of profiles in search results and the possibility to send flirty invitations to multiple members at once. There is also a forum you can access and ask questions or search for answers and solutions. Everything is topped by the fact that they offer full access to their mobile apps for members with full memberships.
Cupid.com can be the online platform where you find true love but it can also be the place to look for someone fun and flirt with beautiful women or handsome men. As most people in here are in for a quick hook up it’s rather difficult to predict their success rate but you can check their success stories page. A big problem is represented by fake profiles and scammers which you must learn how to avoid.
The Safe dating page offers advice and recommendation on how to make your profile more attractive and secure. As an active member, you should pay attention to this advice and to the information you share via chat rooms or messages. Cupid.com reserves the right to store all the information you share for a period of 9 months since the cancellation of your account.
It also has the right to use these information and share them with partner sites, this meaning that you profile may show up on other online dating platforms. If this bothers you, there is the possibility to ask them to remove your data from their marketing strategy.
According to an increasing number of paying users, customer support is indeed polite and will answer messages from members quickly, but issues regarding payments, refunds, and accounts cancellation are solved extremely slowly. You have access to their help centre page where there are listed the most popular FAQ with detailed answers. There are also several email addresses and one contact form you can use to get in touch with them.
