GayCupid is a personals community for men seeking friendship, love, or long-term gay relationships with other men. This Cupid Media site offers live on-site chat, email, and video profiles. Members can join for free, create their own profile and browse, but must upgrade to enjoy unlimited communication with others.

This small, male-only dating community has around 4,000 regular users. It has strict moderation and doesn't allow for uploading of adult rated material or images (which can often be found on other sites of this kind). In addition a high number of men there are seeking some form of committed relationships rather than hook-ups.



Usage


Despite the low numbers, GayCupid's superior format and range of tools make it a worthwhile choice for those looking for a male-male relationship. Plus a number of thoughtful safety features add to its credibility.



Prospective members are invited to not only browse for free, but to also register and join without charge. GayCupid's guest membership (Standard) allows you to create a photo profile with up to five images as well as a video greeting. It also gives a freedom to browse and view profiles, send messages and create hot lists. As with all dating sites, I recommend new joiners put some thought and effort into completing their profile. Empty or poor quality profiles are usually deactivated.



Upgrading


Only if a member wishes to upgrade to a Gold or Platinum membership will any fees be required. Those who upgrade to a Gold membership for a monthly fee (currently $29.99 for 1 month) will be able to enjoy full email and instant chat. Platinum memberships have full privileges, including sending and receiving video mail. Gold and Platinum users have the ability to contact anyone - even free members can respond to their chat and email requests.



Conclusion


GayCupid is a small but bustling community where gay male singles can make friends with other members who hail from every part of the globe. While the site is primarily for gay men, women can be found there and are encouraged to join. The opportunity to use such features as video messaging is an added plus.

    I was having a good time with gay cupid and they canceled or suspended my account I would like to know what I did wrong. I can't even get on the website anymore I paid my subscription and at least they could let me know what i did wrong.

    I wish I could give this site 0 stars. First, I am not gay and second I've NEVER heard of this website. That is until I was charged over $150.00 to gaycupid.com. Obviously this company is a shady website that is either 1) Not Secure or 2) Purchases credit card numbers from other websites.
