Cupid Review (Cupid.com)

Cupid.com is a UK-based dating site that has lots to offer singles. A basic membership is available for free, which allows you to check out what the dating site has to offer, not only in its services, but members living in your area as well. This will give you a good idea if the dating site will meet your expectations and it only takes about two minutes to sign up.

Overall, Cupid.com is well laid out and easy to use when it comes to creating a profile, searching and communicating with other members. This dating service is designed for you to search for your ideal match. The profiles offer enough information to allow you to make informed decisions on who you would like to potentially date. Cupid doesn't assume to know who your ideal match since they feel the person looking on their site would know best, as opposed to a mathematical matchmaking formula. It is estimated that Cupid.com has a total of about 2.5 million members. The review site Dating Wise also notes that Cupid.com has a total of 616,000 active users in any given month.

If you live in the United Kingdom and are interested in searching for your own match, you should give Cupid.com a chance and see if they have what you are looking for.
