This site is focused on the needs of Indian people who are searching for serious relationships. Although some do seek casual friendships and dating, most are there because they are seeking a serious, long term relationship - usually marriage.
IndianCupid, though having only around 12,000 active users is well-maintained and attracts a diverse group of individuals, thanks in part to the large network of online dating sites that fall under the Cupid Dating Network. It is currently only available in English.
Those who join are most often from the United States or India, but can be from anywhere in the world due to it's global reach. It offers an up-to-date range of features that will appeal to many, including advanced searching, email, chat, forums, winks, virtual gifts, and the like.
Standard members can send expressions of interest to others, but only paid-up users can communicate back and forth using email, chat, video messaging, etc.
There are three levels of membership - Standard (Free), Gold, and Platinum. The greatest number of features and tools are available to the highest level of membership, but the mid-level also offers a nice assortment of the most commonly used features that are suitable for the needs of many people.
