FilipinoCupid is a site created especially for people from the Philippines - it also welcomes those who wish to meet someone who originates from that country. It is a pay site and is suitable for those seeking friendship, relationships or marriage.
FilipinoCupid, which was previously called FilipinaHeart.com, is an Asian matchmaking site where people from the Philippines can make friends and romantic connections with one another via email, chat and through a range of matching tools.
It's currently one of the more popular sites of its kind and with 175,000 active users, it is significantly larger than Filipino Friendfinder (read more).
Creating a Profile
Upon joining for free, members have a chance to create and personalize their profiles with photos and video. Locating a well suited match anywhere in the world is simple thanks to the site's advanced compatibility software.
Links to quick searches are available directly on the home page. These include quick access to personalized matches, popular members, video profiles and "In my Area".
Most searches will display paying members first (more). This isn't a bad thing as it tends to display those who are more serious first (having paid for membership and completed their profile).
Getting in Touch
Members who decide to get to know each other have the opportunity to do so via email, chat, instant messenger and even video mail. Joining up is always free; however, a membership upgrade to a Gold or Platinum membership provides unlimited access to services and features.
In order to communicate via email, either the sender or receive needs to be a Gold/Platinum member.
FilipinoCupid.com is place for those of similar backgrounds to meet; however, the site is not exclusive in any way and all individuals are welcome to join.
As well as offering a social hub just for Filipinos, the site is known to have a large number of Filipina women specifically looking for marriage with western men.
FilipinoCupid comes with a language option feature that allows it to be viewed in not only English but French, German and Japanese. Members will need their own webcam to make use of the video profile feature.
