The UK Singles Site to Find Someone Special
Although not a new site, Cupid.com used to be called OK Cupid for those in the know. There are over 1 million active members in the UK, so you're sure to find that special someone if you're single and looking for love.
Cupid dating operates on tried and tested principles and does not require you to wade through a long and complicated "personality test" that some sites ask you to complete.
We got one of our single guys in the office to register online and see what this site is all about.
Easy online registration via Facebook
The great part about Cupid is you can use your Facebook profile to register your free account. None of the information or the fact you've signed up will appear on your Facebook account. Or you can simply enter your name, email address and location to start the process.
Once you've completed this, you need to use the email activation code you're sent to ensure that you're a real person.
When you've validated your email address, you just need to provide a little more information about yourself such as your own profile, photos and personality that will help people find you when searching. You can do this all now or wait and do it later. When we applied there were already another 3,532 members who had joined today.
Searching and Using the Site
When you perform a basic search, you're provided with people that are near the location you added when you signed up. The advanced search allows you to specify how far away people are and a whole host of other options.
These include their lifestyle, if they've previously married, their ethnicity, their body shape and style, their height, eye colour, as well as their hair colour. These options allow you to drill down into who's available based on your criteria.
You can review all matches online without having to pay anything. As with all dating sites, if you want to get in touch with people you'll need to make a small payment, and Cupid is the same in this regard.
Payment Options for Cupid.com
There are four very competitive membership plans available, and you can check everything out by using the low priced trial membership for three days.
