BrazilCupid is a contact site for meeting Brazilian people. Members can be of any background or nationality. The site, which is run by the Cupid Media group, has two paid membership plans which are required for reading messages.

Those who join as a paying member receive additional privileges such as unlimited contacts, priority appearance in searches, and the ability to access video and voice greetings.

The Basics

As well as appealing to those of Brazilian descent, BrazilCupid also serves as a contact site for those who are not from that country but want to meet someone who is. It's popular among Brazilian women who are looking for foreign marriage prospects as well as the men who want to meet them.



The site provides an open and friendly forum for users to get to know one another using an assortment of communication tools such as video, email, e-flirts and of course regular photos. As well it has a standard matchmaking suite which lets users specify their preferences in fine-detail and get match-suggestions directly in their inbox.



Searches and match preferences

Brazil Cupid provides a highly effective set of search options which can be used narrow down the lists of available singles to something more manageable. There's a basic and advanced search form, but going beyond this, users have the option to search by the person's name (user name), by ID, and by cupid tags (these are labels people choose to add to their profiles).

There's also a “popular” list which will give access to frequently run searches such as new members and my matches. This is an area of the site that definitely will require some experimentation to try out all of the combinations and options that are available. Most of the search settings can be saved for later use.



Correspondence

Once a prospective match is found, new members often find their attempts to correspond are thwarted at the last minute by an “upgrade now” button. While it's possible to exchange emails with paying members, standard (non-paying) members can only send messages as neither side will be able to read the contents until they upgrade.



Membership upgrades

Gold membership is needed to obtain chat privileges, while Platinum membership will grant all of the premium features on the site including the ability to access video messages and voicemail. The site's translation software is also available to Platinum users and can ease communications between members who speak English, Spanish or Portuguese.



Conclusion...

Brazil Cupid is an attractive, safe, popular Brazilian community that has a lot of real people seeking everything from new pen pals to a wife or husband. It's packed with handy features which are designed to help you meet others and join in the activity.

Although BrazilCupid.com is a good option for people who share a common ethnic culture and background, the site openly welcomes persons of all backgrounds and ethnicities.

By Tara Miller

The good

  • Attractive design, easy to use
  • Free account holders can access most services, the main exception being reading of emails
  • Offers a good, cost effective alternative to "Latin Bride" type services - members pay a monthly fee rather than paying for each letter (or for contact details)

The bad

  • The member count is quite low
  • Men greatly outnumber women, which leads to low response rates for men

    All in all this is a good site. I love the way it is set up but you never know if the person is for real or not. You do not have to show any ID to sign up and some of the girls there are just scam artist. I have been a member for over a year but you have to use caution. Most of the girls there are just looking for Gringos with money so they will be taken care of, not all are but a lot. I was taken advantage of by one girl I had met on the site. After dating a month she moved in with me 2 days later she brought a few guys with her, they beat me and robbed me blind and i had reported her but they did nothing.

    There are many that just want to get married for green cards too then divorce you and take half of everything. So please be careful and stay away from Caterina De Silva aka Maria Silva from Sao Paulo. I am in a wheel chair cause of her.
