International Cupid is a site that can help those looking for a romantic relationship with someone living abroad. It's popular among women from Eastern Europe, for which numerous profiles can be found.

Once known as Myforeignbride.com, InternationalCupid is aimed at marriage minded people. It serves as a cross-cultural meeting place - known for bringing together women from Eastern Europe, Asia and South America with men from Western nations.

The diverse user-base of around 83,000 active members makes the site a vibrant and interesting place to visit.



Writing something in sections such as “basic profile details”, and “interests” is recommended, as is a photo.


The Vibe

This website's formula is simple. It just lets members communicate and get on with it themselves. Unlike websites offering foreign bride type services such as Anastasia and Chnlove, InternationalCupid provides a more conventional dating experience. You can communicate with anyone openly. Once the subscription is paid there are no fees for correspondence, contact details, or translations.



There are roughly equal numbers of men and women on the site. Because InternationalCupid matches members from around the world, they offer translation software in order to ease any communication barriers. This is available to paying customers only (Platinum) at no additional cost.

First impressions are that it's is fast and easy to navigate. One can browse for free and sign-up for free but the purchase of a Gold membership is required to open emails and to utilize the more advanced features the site has to offer.



There are roughly equal numbers of men and women on the site and this keeps things balanced.


Moderation and certification

As with other Cupid Media sites, content moderation is fairly rigorous. Joiners are advised to make sure their profile is properly completed.

Writing something in sections such as “basic profile details”, and “interests” is recommended, as is a photo. On the plus side, this does help to ensure that other profiles in general meet a minimum level.

A verification service is also available in which photo ID documents are used to confirm a person's identity and that their photos are genuine. An IMBRA (International Marriage Broker Regulation Act) declaration is an added formality. For those who are considering marrying a foreign national, making this declaration can improve the chances of a successful visa application.



Plans

Purchasing a Platinum membership gives access to video and voicemail. The registration is a clear-cut process requiring a valid email address. Basic monthly membership starts at $29.99 per month (see full price list).



You can make contacts and send email with a free account - provided the other person has upgraded.


Upon completing the registration, members can then use the standard search or advanced search options to find compatible matches locally or internationally.

It also offers bookmark and block options as well as features that allow one to see who is online and who has been viewing their profile.

    I agree on the point about making a good profile. My first experience was that the profile was deleted as when I went back to log in the next day i couldn't. The next time was a better outcome as i put in some extra details and completed the about section and upload a photo. That was enough but it meant i was using a different email address to my other account. I am ok with the service so far though my experience is only with a free account. I am waiting when I see someone worth it whether to upgrade or not.

    HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS

    I am male recently registered on internationalcupid, just to try. I got from start without my approved profile photo, many messages from girls mostly from Philippines, some from Africa and Russian and Ukraine. Because I am not paid member and that girls also we cannot read messages each other. I just tried to write some message to Ukrainian girl, who first contacted me and got reply another three unreadable messages. I managed somehow by her photos found and contacted on Facebook which is for free. Same photos as here and she had also on another dating site (heard scam dating bussiness agency).

    On facebook I introduced myself and write quite long message and continued another three letters, and got zero reply, she just without answer quit friendship. I am highly suspicious that this girl probably one of many is a scammer, and because I haven't got till today any reply from cupid, that this 'dating' site is also involved in these dirty scam bussiness.

    When a site believes in making others happy through reunion & resettlement, such sites must always progress. Which is why Muslima, Afrointroductions and Internationalcupid.com stand uniquely out.
