PinkCupid is a dating site devoted to helping single women find action with other singles across the world. PinkCupid is a part of the large cupid network of more than thirty other dating sites all of which are devoted to various niche dating opportunities. Being part of such a wide and successful network of dating sites means that all of the features you would expect to find on a Cupid Network website are right there at your fingertips waiting for you to explore. Given the size of the network, it's hardly a shock that the site is also brimming with loads of well constructed photo profiles for you to browse meaning the opportunity to meet the perfect woman on the site is perhaps right around the corner!
Building your profile on PinkCupid is simple. Once you have signed up to the site you have the opportunity to build a basic profile based on your personal details. If you wish, you can return to your profile at any time and add additional 'modules' to your profile to fill other users in on numerous different elements of your lifestyle, personality, desires, sexual experiences and more. Given the number of users that are on the site, the more information you have on your profile the more likely it is that you will attract those users that you could share a genuine bond with, and the site makes expanding your profile nothing short of a breeze.
As well as a wide breadth of information, users can add high resolution images to their profiles so as to give other users a good idea of their physical appearance. We were a little disappointed that, for a site belonging to the Cupid Network, PinkCupid allows users to upload just 5 images, significantly fewer than other sites in this category. (LesbianPersonals.com allows users to submit an unlimited number of images, whilst LDate.com allows users to upload 27 high resolution images). However you can create private photo folders which will exclude most users from viewing them, unless you give them permission. This means you can withhold some of your more personal photos for women who you really think will appreciate them.
Aside from high quality profile building tools, the site has a strong array of facilities, features and services that help to make the experience of dating online a little more exciting. Users can contact each other through a range of communication services, including in-site email hosting and instant messaging, meaning there's always a convenient way of getting in touch with another member, regardless of whether they are online at the time or not. Users can also send 'interest' to another member to let them know that they like what they see.
As well as these communication facilities, PinkCupid also provides users with a set of tools that simply make the process of dating online more fun. Users can take part in personality profiling questionnaires to find out more about themselves (and others) and post the results on their profile. There's also a great 'auto-match' service, which uses information in the personality profile to match users with their 'perfect matches'. Users can also use video greetings (hosted on profiles) and video mail (sent through the mail client) to let other users know what they are really like in a truly personal way.
One of the pretty unique features of the site is the translation service offered for premium members, whereby members can request translations of messages send in any one of 5 major world languages - love knows no geographical boundaries after all. Of course this is useful for particular words although we do wonder what sort of communication or relationship would be possible for two women who cannot speak a shared language. Perhaps we’re being a bit picky though, who knows what can be said using the language of love!
But all’s not perfect on the site. At times it can flood you with information, much of which is unnecessary. As such the site isn’t always easy to navigate. There have also been complaints that members have received seedy messages from people just trying to “get off” on the idea of women together, which is a concern. We’d like to see this acknowledged more and tackled by the site’s admin. Despite lowering their prices in recent years the site is still quite expensive for gold and platinum membership, and reducing this further would be a strong incentive for new members.
Altogether, PinkCupid offers users a great alternative to some of our other sites, the reason the site doesn't rate quite so highly as others we have reviewed is because we felt it was a little pricey for the services on offer. That said, there is a free trial membership option available, so if you think PinkCupid might be the right site for you, hit the link below to check it out now!
