Introduction to is known as a global dating site, and this is evident because it’s available in 22 languages. The Asian dating site also allows feedback in real-time by way of a single question survey that enables users to vote on the site’s user-friendliness. The search component of the site is very comprehensive as you can customize it based on age (18-99), gender, nationality. You can also narrow your search down to profiles with photos.

The chat option is a convenient and helpful feature is the real-time chat available as part of the features of the site. The chat option allows you to interact in real-time in a convenient pop-up window located on the right side of the screen. The site also includes instant searches based on your personal profiles criteria.

The reverse matches search reveals which profiles have indicated criteria specific to your attributes. The mutual matches search is a one-click instant search that matches your desired criteria.

Covering topics such as how to prevent problems, things to do before you meet, things to do while dating, and before you make a final commitment to become engaged or married.

Signup and Registration Process Review

The signup and registration process is relatively effortless. The site allows you to sign up one of three ways; you can click the login link in the upper right-hand corner which will take you to a page with the option to join for free. You also have the opportunity to sign up by linking your existing Facebook account.

You also have the sign-up option of clicking on the join with the email link on the home page. Once you have clicked the join link, you will be asked your gender, partner preference, age, country, email address, and password creation request. 

Once you fill out all the appropriate fields, you only have to agree to the terms of use, and you’re ready to go. My favorite part of the sign-up process is there is no email confirmation link needed to activate your account.

TrustPilot testimonials made about

The website received four out of five stars on Trustpilot out of 193 reviews, categorized as a “Great,” rating. 63% of the overall score was excellent, with most of the feedback being positive. Many of the users who rated the site as unique we’re delighted with the results they received.

Many users said the site was fun and had excellent usability, and was overall satisfied with the variety of profiles and overall quality of fellow members. Those who rated the website four out of five stars had similar experiences as those who voted excellently. There were also reviews at the four-star level who gave an overall positive review but warned of possible scams and fake profiles. A small number of users who gave the site three out of five stars again was overall satisfied but did advise of inappropriate behavior by some members.

Is‎ a Scam or Trusted Site?

The short answer to the question is no; however, the Internet is accessible by virtually everyone on the planet, and not everyone has an excellent moral compass. It is practically impossible to weed out all the bad seeds and still allow an open, and welcoming platform for people on a global scale. There are several reasons why it is safe to say the site can be trusted.

Cupid Media, the parent company, Filipino Cupid, has been in business for nearly two decades (Check the following Cupid Media guides: AsianDating Review and Review). Over the almost 20-year track record, Cupid Media has maintained a positive reputation. Cupid Media’s headquarters are in Gold Coast, Australia, a globally trusted and respected city. Filipino Cupid also receives an overwhelmingly positive review on App reviewed

The web sites app received four out of a five-star review on the app store. The Filipino Cupid app is well designed an easy to use and has virtually incorporated into it all the features available on the desktop version. There are a few expected differences; however, these are due to the difference in screen size mobile devices and desktop screens. For example, the mobile version only displays 20 profiles per page.

The desktop version shows over 30 accounts per page. The installation of the app took less than one minute; it runs very smoothly. Another pleasant surprise is the apps lack of annoying advertisements. While browsing the profiles, a simple tap reveals a close-up image. 

Swiping To the left reveals any additional images each profile has uploaded. A simple tap of the heart icon instantaneously sends a notification of interest to the fellow member.

Design and Usability

Both the app and the desktop version include the convenient navigation bar associated with each profile displayed. The upper-left side of the app reveals a convenient navigation menu. The navigation menu has links, to review messages, your activity, initiate a search, access settings, access your profile help, and access to a secondary list, which contains links to details regarding the site.

The desktop version includes a dashboard to display statistics about your profile conveniently. The dashboard displays your profile completeness percentage, new message notifications, new interest notifications, new view notifications, and any personal profiles that you’ve saved. New message notifications are also displayed in the form of a pop-up window with the sender’s profile picture age and country.

Beautiful Filipino Women’s Profiles Quality

The image quality of the women’s profiles on the site is strikingly pleasant. Most of the women on the website upload multiple high-quality selfies of themselves. I didn’t come across any images that were dark, low contrast, or low quality. 

Another significant aspect of the variety of profiles on the site is the amount of detail Filipino Cupid allows users to include. Each profile contains specific information not only of themselves but their dating preference. Many of the patterns include pictures of single matches in familiar everyday locations in situations.

Conclusion: Why choose

There are many reasons why you should choose Filipino Cupid as a useful tool to help you find that special someone. Very few online dating sites give you access to millions of potential partners from all four corners of the world.

In addition to the massive dating pool, has been successfully matching couples from around the world for more than 12 years. Another critical factor which makes a wise choice for your online dating experience is it is part of the Cupid Media family.


With flexible payment options, and user-friendly desktop and mobile applications, is in the Top tier of online dating sites. In addition to the trusted name brand recognition, also includes unique features to increase the likelihood of making a successful match.

The mutual matches search as well as the reverse matches search is a desirable feature because you don’t have to sift through hundreds of profiles. If you’re looking for a fun, safe, and respectable online dating experience, is an excellent choice.
