Filipino Cupid Review (2020)

Filipino Cupid

If you are a female and living in the beautiful islands of the Philippines yet alone, Filipino Cupid is your go-to destination.

It is one of the best and credible dating sites available on the internet.

You can put as detailed profile as you want to get personalized and tailored matches.

PROS

  • It gives its users the liberty to block creepy, kinky or rude users
  • It’s one of the stable and maintained dating websites with 20 years of active service and registration can be done via Facebook to save time

CONS

  • If you are not a premium member then you are bound to see those irritating advertisements
  • Majority of the women are old or middle-aged so if you’re looking out for younger girls then there might be some filter issues

The Philippines is known for its serene, beautiful beaches and delicious fruits all over the world. What most people don’t know they also are known for are the cute chicks who can surely turn out to be quite a surprise and eventually be someone you would love to date.

FilipinoCupid is one site that has been around for a long time, 15 years to be precise and has helped thousands of women in the Philippines find love and bring alive their ‘happily ever after’!

Their credibility is further aided by the fact that they’re one of the firsts which show up on the results page if you google the word ‘Filipina’. This is although they do have a few competitors who are neck-to-neck with them.

Being the undisputed leader though, FilipinoCupid racks up new user sign-ups each day, as evident with the 3.5 million users who flock to the site in a bid to find love.

When you enter the site for the first time, you might feel that the design and vibe of the overall site look familiar, which is correct since this site is part of the Cupid network of online dating communities which have taken the internet dating world by storm with their disruptive offerings.

It must be noted that the Cupid Network consists of 30 other titles. Hence, it’s only fair that they have cumulatively taken over the online dating niche with some disruptive concepts that have breathed new life into the otherwise cringe-worthy/unpleasant space. 

They have about 3,500 people who are actively logged on to the site at any given point of time in a week, and the girls here are those who are seriously looking for a foreigner, handsome-looking man to date or spend time with.

It is also interesting to add that the vast majority of the users on this site is made up of women who are as beautiful as the ancient goddess of love and beauty.

Introducing - Filipino Cupid  - The #1 Filipino Dating Site

The quality of girls who are there on the website is surprisingly tremendous, and they’re pretty much ‘above average’ when it comes to beauty and physical traits. These women usually constitute the cream of Filipino dating in the country.

One glance at the site, and you can find a section that’s entirely dedicated to sharing stories of users who were able to find love after they matched and chatted up, eventually get married post some offline meetings and coffee dates.

This strikes up some hope for the lovelorn romantics such as us (hahaha, yes!) and one can only resist this offer if they have a heart made of stone and bricks. The folks at FilipinoCupid have developed a matching system which recommends you, users, based on some questions they ask users even as they set up their profile.

It is imperative to make your profile as detailed as possible since it helps them serve you more tailored, personalised matches.

For highly personalised matches and access to a slew of advanced features, FilipinoCupid requires to upgrade to a premium, paid subscription. So if you wish to spice up your Filipino dating experience a few notches up, FilipinoCupid might just be the perfect choice for you.

Why is FilipinoCupid better than other similar sites?

FilipinoCupid is probably the largest online dating site in the Philippines, which is in intense competition with the likes of DateinAsia, ThaiFriendly, Tagged.com and even Pinalove.

FilipinoCupid, however, scores over its competitors due to the sheer number and quality of users who make use of the site to find their next date or probably even love.

Their moderation and scanning process to provide access to their service is an intensive one, and they relentlessly focus on adding only genuine, high-quality profiles that cut the final platform.

Another reason for them being a successful name in the business is the brand name of their parent company, Cupid Media, which is a leader in the online niche dating space, thanks to a slew of websites dedicated to it, with some notable names being AsianDating and Muslima.com among others.

They have a significantly higher proportion of women users, who are hot, sweet and intelligent; knowing fully well about how they can make men desire and yearn for them and their body.

Further, the fact is that they don’t have an exodus of fake profiles, and there’s not a large number of fake users who tend to scam/spam the genuine ones.

This is especially notable since when compared to a lot of its competitors, they have a massive number of fake profiles, and it might sometimes seem that their sites are actually all made up of fake users.

Furthermore, their support team is quite proactive in keeping the site user-friendly and scam-free, and they take down any fake profile that is reported or flagged off by one of their users.

With this and some of their advanced communication features, we believe that FilipinoCupid has the right ingredients that are required to achieve success in the online dating landscape.

They give their users a significant amount of options to choose from in terms of features and usability and the site’s design is also one of the reasons why it scores over its competitors.

Website Overview

Website address: https://www.filipinocupid.com/

Being around since 2001, FilipinoCupid is one of the oldest online dating sites that cater to the Philippines market.

The service has claimed itself to be the #1 Filipino dating site and boasts of an impressive previous track record where couples have found love after they met on the site.

Filipino Cupid-min

Majority of the male users on the site come from the USA or Europe, whereas the women on the site are of Filipino descent. The females are usually in the age bracket of 25 to 44 years, whereas the men are generally between 35-54 years.

It is interesting to note that while hardly any women users have a paid, premium membership; the men on the site are usually the ones who have access to the features that come under the site’s premium membership plan.

Signing up is a two-step process, where on the first page, you are required to enter your necessary details – birth date, name and location.

The second page, on the other hand, is a bit more detailed as it requires users to answer some in-depth questions such as marital status, ethnicity, occupation, whether the user is willing to relocate to the Philippines or not, and your nationality.

This is followed by a field where you have to write a paragraph that gives some more insight about your personality, a headline for the same and the qualities/traits you seek in a potential match. The entire process takes just about 15 to 20 minutes to complete.

As a free user, you can only browse through profiles and their pictures while sending a few messages back and forth. To continue, you must upgrade to a paid membership so that you can enjoy the benefits of the site as a whole.

While hovering on another match/user’s profile, you get about five options/action buttons to choose from, which include – viewing their profile, message user, sending a heart, adding them to your favourites list or wanting to engage in instant chat.

The UI and navigation of the site are pretty easy on the eye and makes for a pleasant browsing experience. It is also worth adding that the transition between pages is smooth and only makes the overall browsing experience better. It is not necessary to upload your photos.

Still, if you seriously want matches and your potential partner to notice you, our advice is that you should at least put up 2-3 pictures of yourself so that the frequency of people matching with you goes up significantly.

Furthermore, they also have an Android version available for download, which helps your dating game stay healthy on the go. The app has been neatly designed, and the interface is clean AF, which enables you to browse effectively on mobile as well.

A site is a good option for those folks who are into Filipino women and want a safe, secure and positivity-fuelled online dating experience. They have a slew of communication features which helps them make a strong case for being the #1 Filipino dating website online at the moment.
