Join Cupid.com for free
Although not a new site cupid.com used to be called ok cupid for those in the know. In the UK they have over 1,000,000 active members so you would be sure to find that special someone if you are single and looking for love. Cupid dating is based on tried and tested principles and does not require you to complete 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 have 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 have completed this you need to use the email activation code you are sent to ensure that you are a real person.
When you have validated your email address you just need to provide a little more information about yourself such as your own profile, photos and personality which 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 are provided with people that are near the location you have added when you signed up. The advanced search allows you to specify how far away people are and a whole host of other options including their lifestyle, if they have previously married, their ethnicity, their body shape and style, their height, eye colour as well as their hair colour. This allows you to really drill down into who is available.
You can review all matches online without having to pay anything, but of course with all dating sites if you want to get in touch with people you will need to make a small payment and Cupid is the same in this regard.
