BiCupid Review

Average: • 3.9 / 5 (by 2 Users) for BiCupid   View Add

BiCupid.com is one of the first and largest dating services for bisexual and bi-curious people. Both online and through the app, BiCupid is a go-to destination for sexy and open-minded singles and couples who are looking to explore their sexuality, chat, hook up, and date in a friendly and comfortable environment.

Joining BiCupid with a Standard Membership is free. With a Standard Membership, you can upload photos and create a profile that describes who you are and what you're looking for. Other Standard Members and Gold Members can view your profile. Free users may receive and reply to messages from Gold Members, but may not initiate mail messages or instant messages with other Standard Members. Standard Members may also send Winks to anyone and search profiles for free, however, they are restricted to a basic search.

Upgrading to a Gold Membership is essential if you wish to get the most out of your BiCupid experience. Along with initiating messages, Gold Members can sort matches into lists, search using advanced parameters, request access to private albums, highlight their profiles in search results, view videos, access advanced privacy settings, and receive priority customer care and more personalized services.

Memberships are available in three purchase options. BiCupid also offers several ways to earn a free Gold Membership, including: sharing dating advice and safety tips, promoting the service on social media, writing promotional articles or press releases, and reporting users engaging in scams, spamming, pornography, offensive messages or other fraudulent or abusive behavior.

BiCupid has a number of features that help it to stand out in the crowd. Users can share their best first date ideas, organized into categories like “Food and Drink” and “Arts and Culture.” To date, more than 25,000 suggestions have been contributed. Users have also contributed more than 1,300 dating and safety tips, and can upload videos to a dedicated Videos page (though much of is sexually explicit content).

If the standard search is not your cup of tea, BiCupid offers a Tinder-like game called Let's Meet. A quick and easy way to find interested matches, Let's Meet presents photos of potential matches one at a time. You can Heart them or Skip them, and if if you and another member both slide each other's photos into the Heart pile, you'll receive a notification and can begin chatting. If either of you slide the photo to the Skip pile, no one is the wiser.

One of BiCupid's biggest strengths is its active and engaged community. Though it's primarily a dating service, BiCupid also aims to be a lifestyle destination for its members. The Community section of the website is home to member blogs, which offer users the opportunity to share their life experiences and topics of interest with each other. Blogging is a great icebreaker that encourages users to get acquainted. BiCupid also hosts forums for discussions on a variety of topics and interests.

BiCupid scores relatively high marks for ease of use. Registration is fast and does not require filling out a lengthy questionnaire. Additional elements can be added later to create a more well-rounded, descriptive, and effective profile. The website and app are also easy to navigate, though with so many different features and search options, it make take a few tries before a new user knows exactly where everything is. It's not the flashiest or most modern service out there, but the functionality is solid.

While many dating services include an option for bisexual singles, BiCupid is one of the few dedicated specifically to the bi community. It's no surprise it's one of the better known and well regarded bisexual dating sites in the world.
