DominicanCupid is a contact place for meeting Dominican women and men. The site has open communication between members, and also offers language translation tools. As a guest member (non-paying) you can create a photo profile and search for/view others; an upgrade is required to make full use of the on-site features including reading and replying to emails.
Finding a Dominican Beauty is the tagline for this site. That's certainly the reason most men at least take out membership at DominicanCupid. And to be fair most of the relationships formed there are foreign romances of that variety. If that's for you read on, otherwise perhaps Match.com or POF is more your thing.
Signing-up and making a profile is always free on DominicanCupid and as a new member you can customize you match preferences describing exactly what type of person you want to meet. Video greetings can be either uploaded or recorded directly by connecting via a webcam. In addition, Basic membership provides access to services such as sending email, flirts and full browsing capabilities.
You can embellish your profile with all manner of details, including you personality type, pastimes and hobbies, cupid tags (short “sound bites” which describe yourself or your circumstances). The free text sections let you get creative in expressing how you feel about certain topics; headers here include “your favorite book”, “favorite music”, “what sort of food you like”, and “how you would spend a romantic weekend”. Remember, the more details you supply here, the more likely you are to receive accurate match notifications in you inbox.
Upgrading, Gold, Platinum
Gold and Platinum Memberships provide access to additional such features as instant messenger and video and voice mail features and of course unlock full access to onsite email. Site members are welcome to upgrade at any time or to continue with a standard account.
You can use a standard (guest) account for an unlimited time; however the downside is you can only talk to users who've upgraded and won't be able to talk to other "guest users". This will be a big hindrance if you're a guy because many of the Dominican girls are using free accounts and so you won't be able to talk to them.
Upgrading also prioritizes your position when others search; Gold and Platinum members appear ahead of basic members and are therefore more likely to receive attention.
DominicanCupid.com is a solid site with a lot of great features. It is well-suited to those of Dominican background as well appealing to others who appreciate Dominican culture and would like to meet someone from this part of the world. Though some foreign marriage websites offering Latin dating will charge a fee for each contact made, members with paid monthly memberships can enjoy unlimited contact privileges.
Language options allow the site to be translated in English or Spanish.
