Enjoy communication with women in a friendly environment

Cupid is an online dating platform with a large database. Their matching algorithm will mainly offer you people who live in the same area as you do. You can search through the database for free, but if you want to communicate with other members and see the large photos you will have to become a paid member. As a paid time member, you will get access to all communication facilities and to several interesting features, in particular your profile can be placed on the top of the search in order to enlarge your chances to be noticed by as many members as possible. Still remember of scammers who are often present on big dating platforms. Also there have been complaints of fake profiles of beautiful ladies meant to attract more members to subscribe. Among strong sides we can point out a user-friendly interface and advanced search form. Also you can contact a dating adviser through a live chat and get a prompt assistance online. You can use not only web version but access the site through mobile apps for iOS, Android and Windows Phone. So you will be able to use the site elsewhere, at home or on the go.

Features

One of the most interesting features is “Special 7” feature. Each day you will be offered 7 matches that have been automatically chosen by the system upon your preferences. You can either tick the profile with “Yes”, “Maybe” or “No” and see whether the member has ticked you in response. Another feature is "Wingman Barney, help" button. You will see it on some of our users' profiles. When you click on it, Wingman Barney will analyze the profile of a woman/man you like and find the best way to approach her/him. After you click the button, Barney sends the lady/gentleman of your choice a message he believes will get her/his attention and make her/him reply. The first 3 'Yes' messages are free, which means that you can communicate for free with the first 3 ladies/gentlemen who message you thanks to our wingman.

Safety

The site has the page with tips and recommendations for safe dating, it is reasonable to follow them. Look out for scammers, usually they try to attract you to another site where you will be charged for other services or they may ask you to send them some money telling various spiels.  Cupid.com keeps the right to store all the information you posted on the site within 9 months after the cancellation of your account. Also it declares the right to use the information from your profile and share it with partner sites. Thus you may find your profile on the dating sites you did not join. Still you can contact the customer support and ask them to take your data off their marketing strategy.
