RussianCupid.com test at a glance – The pros and cons

Pros

  • Easy Navigation: The layout of Russiancupid.com is made simple and every feature is in plain sight for even the least tech-savvy of users. This also makes the website compatible for a wide range of ages (of legal age).
  • Who's Online: A number is always displayed with the amount of online members at the time that you enter the website. This way, you can keep track of when the website is the most active to increase your chances of finding love.
  • App: An app is available on the Google Play Store for Android users for both convenience and for talking on-the-go. The layout is still simple and optimized for a smartphone.

Cons

  • App: The app is only available on Google Playstore. However, iPhone users can always opt to use the website in the mobile browser.
  • Time out: Sessions on the website tend to time-out fairly quickly. Thus, it is important to stay active while you are on it.
  • Purchase Privacy: When purchasing membership, the name that shows up on your billing statement is, "Russiancupid.com." This does not allow for being discreet about your membership.
  • No Background Checks: Russiancupid.com does not conduct criminal record background checks on its members which means you should be very wary of with whom you are chatting with on the website.

RussianCupid.com Test: Let's get to the details

Russiancupid.com is run by a company called Cupid Media which was released in the year 2000. Cupid Media is in charge of running a variety of niche dating websites based on personal interests such as sexuality, culture, religion, and many more (Check the following Cupid Media guides: AsianDating Review, UkraineDate.com Review, ThaiCupid.com Review, BrazilCupid.com Review and InternationalCupid.com Review). The company is currently the lead niche online dating website in countries across the world such as North America, Europe, and Asia. 

Cupid Media has serviced almost thirty million satisfied individuals and has the latest technology to make using these websites an altogether more enjoyable experience. Instead of making you, the user take a personality test to find a match, you are given the option to create a self advertisement and find love at your own pace.

Most of the visitation and membership at Russiancupid.com consist of residents of both Russia and the United States. The website is aimed at Russian or Western men looking for love because they are not featured on the website at all; the website consists of Russian women and girls of legal age. Not finding someone is not a problem because at ay time of day, approximately over one thousand users are online. Did not make an account yet? No problem! Russiancupid.com allows you to view these females before making an account. Whatever the case may be, Russiancupid.com is aimed towards helping you find your true love.

In accordance with Russiancupid.com’ Terms of Service, any new member must be at least age eighteen or over. If an account does seem suspicious, the website reserves the right to investigate and terminate the account if needed. By becoming a member at Russiancupid.com, the user is consenting for the transmission of his or her data to any third parties. However, there are security measures intact to protect your information otherwise. To avoid scamming, the website can request a user to do an identification check by sending in documents of identification.

Russiancupid.com makes meeting your future significant other incredibly easy with its simple layout. To show interest in someone or send a message, you would simply have to visit that person’s profile and click one of the two buttons. If you are at a loss for words, there are a couple of options available such as, “Seeking marriage,” “Want to chat,” or I’m interested in you.” If any of these options (or others on the website) are to your liking, but need a personal touch, they can be easily customized. Russiancupid.com has a layout similar to other niche dating websites created by Cupid Media with the only difference being the color scheme. Similar to Facebook, Russiancupid.com offers tagging to find others with your personal interests and making searches more efficient.

After making a profile, you will be asked to verify your identity by sending in documents. A badge will appear on your profile to show that you have verified and are in fact, a real person. The profiles can also highly customized.

Signing Up: That's what we found out

The registration process on Russiancupid.com was made with users not so tech savvy in mind. The process is fairly quick and not to mention easy. To make an account, there are only three fields and two boxes that need to be filled out. As with any other dating website, there is an option for uploading a photo, however it is important to note that uploading one is not necessary. According to experts, showing a profile picture on an online dating website makes you more likely to find a match rather than someone without one!

The photo uploading process is simple: pick a photo from your desktop or Facebook and click a button. If the photo you want is not on either of these platforms, there are some alternatives! The options are as follows:

  • Mobile Upload: You can select a picture from your phone's gallery and upload it through the browser.
  • QR Code: By scanning the given QR Code with a scanning app, you will be given instructions on how to upload a photo to Russiancupid.com.
  • Email: A picture can be emailed to Russiancupid.com if you are having issues with the original upload process.
  • Mail: If all else fails, the last option is to place your picture in an envelope and mail it to Russiancupid.com' P.O. Box.

One last thing to note is that your full name must accompany the picture you choose to send as Russiancupid.com does not provide email verification.

Trustpilot Testimonials

Numerous users on Trustpilot have accredited Russiancupid.com as being a scam, however this may just be because of a bad experience. One user has written about a lack of real users on the website. After making an account, there will be an influx of messages into your inbox, but a majority of these will be from scammers or fake accounts, according to the user. Customer service is very difficult to get in touch with and the website has restrictions on the types of pictures that can be uploaded to your profile. This review was only from one user.

RussianCupid.com: Scam or Real?

Other reviews from websites such as Sitejabber and Russianbrides.com have more positive reviews about the website. One user mentions how he met his future bride on Russiancupid.com and another counteracts the claim from the Trustpilot reviewer that a majority of the users are fake. He says that Russiancupid.com does have real women and he has messaged quite a few of them. Others mention finding their soulmates from areas such as Ukraine and Vologda. It is safe to say from these reviews that Russianpilot.com is very much a real and credible dating website!

Russian Women on Russiancupid.com

One of the biggest concern members have on Russiancupid.com is fake profiles. With a majority of these women or girls being beautiful, it is easy to make the assumption that they could be fake. However, users have testified from experience that these women are real after video chatting and meeting in person with them. These women are real women looking for committed relationships and are mostly either students or working adults. Find the perfect woman or girl only takes a little bit of searching!

Russiancupid.com Fazit: Why Should You Join?

Russiancupid.com has connected hundreds of individuals whom have now found their lifelong partner. There are thousands of real women on the website if you take the time to search for them and the scam accounts are easy to avoid as they have mostly empty profiles.

The layout is simple enough for even the least tech-savvy of users and is accessible to all ages over eighteen. If you choose to meet a female who resides in a Russian-speaking country, the language translation services on the Russiancupid.com makes it easier to communicate and even learn the language. Russiancupid.com may just be where you will meet your future soulmate and partner!
