FilipinoCupid.com is brought to you by the Cupid Media Network, with over 20 million customers across a wide range of online dating sites. We think it's simply the best site in our Top 10 and definitely worth checking out. With an impressive range of useful features and three bargain membership grades to choose from it's a great choice for anybody looking for beautiful women from the Philippines, whether for friendship, online chat, dating or a long-term relationship.
Of all the Top 10 ranking Filipino dating sites, FilipinoCupid.com featured the most online activity. When we first checked out FilipinoCupid.com there were 2,797 members online, from a membership base of thousands. You'll find that most members are females from the Philippines, whilst most males sign up from the USA, Canada, UK and Australia.
The site caters for those looking for penpals, friendship, romance/dating and long-term relationships, covering a range of ages from 18-60s. It's free to sign up and create your profile; it's also sensible to zip through the registration process as quickly as you can and take a look at the site, then complete your profile if you decide to stay. Members are required to indicate their English language ability, so a potential language barrier can be highlighted by looking at a profile. That said, all of the profiles we checked out were completed in English.
Profiles are the most detailed of any site in the review category. Thumbnail profiles display the main profile photo along with the member's name, age, location, last login, number of profile photos and more. From the thumbnail you can click to view the full profile; it's useful to look for the green ticks alongside member attributes that indicate whether a member's profile details match those you're looking for and whether your details match their preferences too. Plenty of green ticks mean that there may be a potential match. The majority of profiles feature multiple photos, which are of excellent quality and size, leaving you in little doubt about the appearance of members. There's a strict vetting process and explicit or fake photos, as well as those that do not clearly depict a person, are removed by the site administrators.
Upgrading to Gold membership lets you (in addition to the standard features listed) read messages from free members, use the IM feature, allow free members to read your messages and ranks your profile above Standard members.
To get in touch with other members, you can 'show interest' by clicking a button to initiate contact. It's also possible to send and receive email messages and use the instant messenger (IM) feature to chat with other members online. You'll find a few different searches to help your browsing (see above). The advanced search option is comprehensive and allows you to specify a wide range of criteria if there's a particular type of member you're looking for. Alternatively, the basic search offers a less detailed tool that's quick and easy to use. You can also search by member number or first name.
Free members can join, create a profile, 'show interest' to other members, add up to 5 photos and read messages from paying members. Upgrading to Gold membership lets you (in addition to the standard features listed) read messages from free members, use the IM feature, allow free members to read your messages and ranks your profile above Standard members.
If that's not enough, Platinum membership ranks you above Gold members and allows you to view video profiles, send/read video emails, add notes to profiles and translate messages. The longer the subscription the more you can save, up to 67% for a 12 month Platinum membership. Renewing on a monthly basis is quite an expensive option but allows you more flexibility. If you're prepared to splash out, there's no Filipino online dating site more worthy of your money and we're confident that your initial outlay will reap romantic dividends.
There are a number of avenues for further help and guidance on the site. It's a good idea to read the introductory 'Where do I start?' section on the homepage first. There's also a comprehensive FAQs page and if all else fails then there's email support too.
In summary, FilipinoCupid.com is the best Filipino dating site we've reviewed. Packing more punch than Manny Pacquiao, it has all the features you need and then some, and offers great subscription memberships. If you're serious about finding a Filipino soul mate then you'd be crazy not to stop by.
