Overview

You can now enjoy cross-border love by joining InternationalCupid, an online foreign dating platform with over 1 million members worldwide. The site connects thousands of single men and women from more than 30 different countries daily. Whether you’re based in Asia, Africa, America or Australia, here’s where to kickstart your dating journey.

Features

  • Basic and Advanced Search: InternationalCupid has basic and advanced search filters. Free members can only perform basic matching while premium members can filter search results more precisely based on their preferences, particularly age, marital status, education, likes and dislikes.
  • Advanced Messaging: Premium members are entitled to live chat with an instant messenger. They can send and receive messages to and from anyone. Free members cannot send messages, but they can read messages sent by paid members. The site also has a chat room where members can join and interact freely with hot and cute singles.
  • Inbuilt Translator: Since InternationalCupid serves members from all nationalities, you are likely to meet foreign singles who speak a different language from yours. The good news is that the site has a built-in translator that converts messages into your preferred language.
  • Exotic Photo Gallery: You can browse and view interesting photos of pretty foreign ladies on InternationalCupid. However, you must be a premium member to gain access to this exotic photo gallery.

Ease of Use

Like all other dating platforms run by Cupid Media Network, InternationalCupid has a simplistic design and a very user-friendly interface. Members of all age groups, including older folks, can sign up and find dates without much hassle. If joining for the first time, note that basic membership comes with so many limitations. Upgrading to premium membership will open up more opportunities for you to find your perfect match.

Signing up

InternationalCupid is free to join, and the registration process is quick and simple. It will take you less than 5 minutes to sign up and set up your profile. You only need to provide your basic details including your name, email, gender and age. Alternatively, you can sign up using your Facebook ID, which is an easier and faster option since you can import your photos from your Facebook account.

The best part of signing up is that you don’t have to verify your email before proceeding. You can start searching for dates right away without even completing your profile. However, a popup window will prompt you to do so every time you want to perform an action on the site, which is irritating.

Finding matches

InternationalCupid offers basic matching for standard users and advanced search filters for premium users. With basic matching, you can only search profiles based on age, location, popularity and latest picture uploads. On the other hand, advanced search filters allow you to narrow down your options based on appearance, education, and marital status.

Updating your “About Me” section can make it easier for others to find you. And as a premium user, InternationalCupid will list your profile on top of match searches, thus making you more visible in search results. Besides, you can save your search results and add your frequent contacts to a Favourites list for future reference.

Making contact

With a free membership, you can perform basic searches, view profiles, send hearts to show interest and reply to messages sent by premium members. To enjoy advanced messaging features, you must upgrade to Gold or Platinum membership. Premium members can send and receive texts through live chat or instant messaging.

The instant messenger has a built-in translator that automatically translates foreign messages into your preferred language. Social interactions do not stop there. InternationalCupid also has a chat room where you can join and mingle with other like-minded singles searching for love.

Customer support

InternationalCupid offers round the clock customer support. You can contact the support team at whatever time via email. If you decide to phone them, your call will only go through from Monday to Friday between 9 am and 4 pm.

The Bottom Line

Universal love has never been more straightforward. All credit to InternationalCupid. This dating platform offers you a once in a lifetime opportunity to find the man or woman of your dreams across borders. However, don’t just take our word for it. You have to join to experience what the site has to offer.

Although signing up is free, you can only do so much as a standard member. Upgrading to a premium member is the only way to make the most out of InternationalCupid. It’s a good thing that the premium membership isn’t that costly, and you get your money’s worth.
