Summary

Filipino Cupid is one of the country-specific dating websites of a bigger international online dating platform, dedicated to providing the most extensive choice of local candidates. The Cupid network two-decade expertise in connecting singles worldwide may be impressive, ensuring its fairly good overall reputation. But for an average user, it is the ins and outs of the specific dating website that matter the most.

Pros:

  • Fast registration.
  • Simple design.
  • Translation services (free only for Platinum members).
  • Mobile app.
  • Advanced search filters (for premium members only).

Cons:

  • Overly pushy on users to complete their profiles.
  • Free users can only communicate with premium members.
  • Lots of fake profiles and scammers.
  • Lots of negative customer ratings and reviews.
  • Poor customer service. 

How it works

Signing up in filipinocupid.com is free and fast with a valid email and a password. This takes only a few minutes, or even less if you register with Facebook instead of filling out the fields to enter the essential personal details (first name, gender, age). You can start checking out the profiles, sending hearts, and using basic search filters, such as age, country, and area.

The problem with many sites where some services are free is trying to make free user experience as inconvenient as possible, so that you pay for upgraded subscription sooner rather than later. FilipinoCupid is no exception, but some users complain it is more annoying in this regard than other Cupid dating websites. 

Uploading photos, making one’s profile more detailed, and paying for premium membership are all optional steps anyone needs some time to consider. Instead, you get these pop-up windows that keep urging you to complete your profile, and you get many messages as soon as you register that you can’t see unless you pay. Of course, these can’t be ones of genuine interest, especially if you don’t have a photo yet, and they can be easily ignored.

However, according to Filipino Cupid reviews at user review websites, the most frustrating things about using Filipino Cupid are fake profiles and scammers, auto renewal of membership, and poor customer service. To minimize risks and disappointments, most recommend paying for 1-month membership rather than going through the settings on your account page and disabling the auto renew option. This ensures you won’t be automatically charged for renewal of your membership if you decide to stop using the service or your account gets suspended for security checks.

Obviously, Filipino Cupid deals with scammers from all over the world, just like any other international online dating website. Any pretty girl you see online may turn out to be a hooker, a ladyboy, or a man, who are simply looking for someone to send them money for one thing or another – be it nude pics or sex cam shows they offer, or just money for food because they are ‘starving’. Scammers have all sorts of prefabricated stories and messages for you, and some typical tricks up their sleeves in order to kindly ask you to ‘help’ them.

However, there are many Filipino singles who are serious about searching for a partner and don’t ask for any money, but it certainly takes some scam-filtering to find them. The advanced search filters are helpful if you wish to find a partner with specific characteristics, cultural values, or interests, but these are only available with premium membership.

Audience

According to Filipino Cupid, this service has 3.5 million registered users, their female members are from the Philippines aged between 25 – 44, while male users are 40 – 60 years old and mostly come from the United States and European countries. Women tend to use the website for free, while men have to opt for upgraded membership to contact them. 

It is true that these women consider fair-skinned men handsome, including older men, and many young Filipinas have romantic fantasies about older men from foreign countries. Many simply hope to find a partner who is a decent and financially secure person, as compared to the locals who are often abusive and unfaithful.

Pricing

Registration on filipinocupid.com is free, but you can communicate with all members only if you have a Gold or Platinum upgraded membership. Both have reasonable prices and let you send unlimited messages, as well as join the live chat and minimize ads, but the Platinum membership unlocks more features, such as increasing your profile space, ranking above other members, using advanced search filters, and translating messages for free.

Gold subscription:

1 month –  $34.99

3 Months – $23.32/month (Save 33%)

12 months – $11.66/month (Save 67%)

Platinum subscription:

1 month –  $39.99

3 months –  $26.66/month (Save 33%)

12 months – $12.49/month (Save 69%)

Safety

Any Filipino Cupid review online states that this service takes safety seriously, using modern encryption technology, just like the entire Cupid network of similar websites. It protects user data and financial transactions, and there is also special anti-scam software that Filipino Cupid claims to have, but it can’t provide you with 100% safety guarantee. Keep in mind that most users are from the Philippines, and this is a country with a lot of poverty, so there is a thin line between expectations of generosity and only wanting your money. The attraction for money is always going to be there, so beware of the scammers.
