Fast Cupid promotes itself as a site where you can meet interesting people, busy professionals who have a career and an active social life. Access for standard members (free) is very restricted until an upgrade is purchased. Full membership unlocks message access, profile viewing as well as advanced searching. The site belongs to the Friendfinder Network.
It is claimed to be for the single person with above average intelligence. They have around 21,000 regular users worldwide and offer a number of services such as their Cupid matching system and access to Friendfinder's live messenger. Users of FastCupid can also customize their email preferences and so block certain people from making contact with them.
Signing up is free as is the basic account; however, upgrading to a Gold or Silver Membership will give greater access. In particular, it unlocks emailing and allows full profile and photo viewing. Upgrades and additional services such as profile highlights can be purchased in monthly, quarterly or yearly increments.
FastCupid is not only for dating, but also a meeting place where people can get together in forums and have intelligent conversation. Members will need to have their own webcam to make use of the broadcast feature while using the messenger. A valid email address will be required to complete the registration process.
