A website for mixed race dating and friendship. InterracialCupid has around 13,000 active users and will suit you if you want to date across ethnic lines. There's an impressive selection of features, including personality matching, instant messaging, video greetings, and a built-in message translator.
According to recent dating surveys, it turns out that more single Americans than ever are dating across racial lines, and interracial marriage is not as uncommon as it once was.
InterracialCupid is a place for bringing together singles of all races, ethnicities and cultures for love, friendship and romance. At least that's what they claim. While it's not as big as AfroRomance (read more) it does have its own distinct flavor.
Friends or Lover?
Whether you're actively seeking an interracial relationship or perhaps just looking for new friends of a different ethnic background, you'll find members and profiles to peruse here.
InterracialCupid provides a secure and reliable platform for its users. It's owned and operated by Cupid Media. They do offer a tour but this really just explains the three different access levels; Standard, Gold and Platinum and what you will receive with each.
Using Standard Membership
The free standard membership allows you to create a photo profile and peruse other people's profiles, and allows you to send emails and flirts to others. An upgrade to Gold is required to read messages (from non-paying members) or to add a personality profile.
A Platinum membership offers full access with video, voice and text messaging features. Paying members also appear first in searches.
Get "Used" to the Small Community
InterracialCupid.com is a safe place where singles of all cultures, races and backgrounds can come together. The site is full of options that allow quick contact between members from countries all around the world. However, there are some restrictions on messaging unless you choose to upgrade.
Other perks when you upgrade include
- Being able to surf ad free
- Ability to hide yourself
- View all photos on profiles
If you upload your own photo, the last one is complementary.
Small communities such as this allow for a more intimate atmosphere that is approachable and anything but intimidating. But the low number of users can make it difficult to find people who you "click with" and who live nearby.
