Pink Cupid is an online dating site specifically for lesbians. Its popularity seems to have grown to a modest but healthy amount. I would describe it as a full-service site. It has many of the most common features on other dating sites in the market today. It also has some advanced options for those willing to pay extra. Unfortunately, some areas of this site definitely have a cookie-cutter feel to them. Various texts and dropdown menus have not been edited to tailor to its all-female niche.
For example, when signing up to PinkCupid you have a choice of gender for yourself and for a potential match. I guess they figure you’d be clever enough to know you were looking in the wrong place if you were male. However, leaving the option to be a man or be looking for a man in the dropdowns seems careless. At any rate, the rest of signup process is mandatory. No fields whatsoever can be skipped. That ensures at least a minimum quality in the profiles, I suppose.

When doing even a basic search, you get to see everyone’s complete details and last login info, which is great. If you live in the U.S., Canada or the U.K., you can narrow your search down to select cities. This feature may exist for some other countries as well. It’s a bit tricky to find the more localized options. First, you need to do a basic search covering a larger region of a country. The more detailed options appear below your primary search results.
It is free to reply to messages on PinkCupid.com. You can also send the usual free signs of interest while viewing profiles. Obviously, you’ll have to upgrade to initiate contact. Once you do, there are plenty of communication options like onsite email, instant messaging and chat rooms. Those who pay for the most expensive level of membership can also send video or voicemail messages.
All paid members can add up to five photos to their profiles. The highest-level members can add voice and video introductions as well. You can create a list of your online friends. There’s always an option to see all members that are on the site at the same time as you’re visiting. You can also browse the most recent photos and videos added to the site.
No forums or articles are available to create sense of dating community. Some other sites find that important. Nevertheless, you still have access to chat in order to form group bonds. It’s always been clear that Pink Cupid had a great deal of potential, but now it has started to succeed in attracting more traffic to its pages.
