Gay Cupid Review
Part of the Cupid Media Network, which has a wide range of dating website niches, GayCupid.com is a long-standing gay dating website that is great for meeting gay or bisexual men both locally or around the world for relationships that are a little more serious.Give it a try
The website has a very neat look and is very easy to navigate, but does not provide features that are unique. Still, the tools they have lined up are sufficient for meeting and getting to know a person from the website to develop a relationship. Aside from having your own personal profile where you can choose whether or not to upload your profile picture.
There is a decent search tool on the site that can help narrow down the pool of members based on physical properties as well as personalities or interests. So with the search tool, it is possible to meet that dream guy. It is possible to view the number of people online once you sign in, which can making spontaneous chats with other members easier.
Communication here comes in the form of messaging, chat rooms, instant messaging, as well as commenting on member video and photo galleries. The galleries might be the best part of the site, as it is the place to ogle the hot pictures of the other members.
Quality of Members
As this site is not free and the membership fees are rather high, there are not too many active members on this website. In fact it seems that there are many abandoned or empty profiles, which can make browsing here quite frustrating since we have to bypass those profiles to get to the active ones.
There are three tiers of membership on this website, each allowing certain levels of full functionalities. The first is free membership, which does not give much access to the site. This is followed by Gold membership that drastically provides more functionality except for translation of messages, instant messaging, video chatting, or profile customisation. Gold membership starts at US$24.99 for 1 month, US$16.99 per month for 3 months, US$12.50 per month for 6 months and US$8.33 per month for 12 months.
As for Platinum membership, all features are unlocked. Prices start at US$29.99 for 1 month, US$20.00 per month for 3 months, US$16.66 per month for 6 months and US$10.00 per month for 12 months. Both Gold and Platinum memberships eliminate advertisements on the website.
While a very good platform which adequate communication features, GayCupid.com does not shine as brightly as other gay dating sites. However, if you are seeking relationships beyond casual hook-ups, then this website might be more suitable for you.Give it a try
