Latin American Cupid
The best thing to hold onto in life is each other
LatinAmericanCupid.com was founded in March of 2003 by Cupid Media Ltd., which today is the owner of bbwcupid.com, blackcupid.com, indiancupid.com and many other sister sites. The dating platform has over 1,000,000 memberswith a very high number of active users online. This happens to be one of the busiest dating platforms in the world with almost 2,900+ profiles actively online during the day.
Many foreign Latin women meet non-Latin men using this site. As per the 2013 report in Cupid Views, 28% of users are Latin women and 40% are non-Latin men seeking foreign marriages. Therefore, this site even has an IMBRA section with details of immigration requirements and issues on bringing in a foreign partner into the United States. Although this mail-order-bride type of communication does happen on LatinAmericanCupid.com, over 20% of the site is people just looking to date or hook-up. 3 million singles from USA, Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Peru, the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina, Puerto Rico, Cuba and many other Latin countries use this site.
Signup takes a little bit of time and users are asked to describe their ethnicity, marital status, job, smoking & drinking habits, etc. The profile questions are long but the choices for most questions are in a drop bar and can be filled in easily. If a user does not complete their profile before using the site, a pop-up appears every two minutes reminding the user to complete their profile or else they will be “timed out” of the system. In this way, the site deeply encourages to pursue the completion of your profile to avoid having fake accounts.
Although the site is geared towards Latin Americans, it is not exclusive to only that ethnicity. When a user signs up for a free account, they are limited to only the basic matching system. LatinAmericanCupid.com uses an exclusive feature called “CupidTags” that helps users match-up by tagging their own profiles with certain adjectives. Paid members can also attach a video greeting to their profile along with photos.
