IndonesianCupid | A Dating Disaster Or Singles Hotspot?

Share With :

Cupid Media network has built a reputation for running niche dating sites, and they do not disappoint with IndonesianCupid. This is the ideal site for someone who is seeking Indonesian singles. The signup process is simple and fast; with the option of using your Facebook profile.

Once you have identified someone you like you can show interest by clicking the heart-shaped button on their profile. IndonesianCupid uses a manual search to find matches, unlike modern sites that use matching algorithms. Members can communicate through instant messaging, but it is limited to text only. This is a drawback because many modern sites have both audio and video.

A significant number of Indonesian girls join the site in search of foreign marriages, but there is also a smattering of Asian men also looking for relationships. Most of the singles live in the big cities like Surabaya or Jakarta; it is not unusual to find a few singles from the small islands like Papua, Bali, and Sumatra. You join the site as a free member and then you can upgrade to Gold or Premium. While you are a free member you will not be required to provide credit card details – only email address, this lets you explore the website for free before you become a paid member.

The site has a fair amount of legitimate profiles with the IndonesianCupid administrators perennially weeding out fake profiles. You will find the site’s easy to use mobile app handy when you need to communicate with other members on the go. The predominant religion is Islam and westerners need to be aware of the conservative approach to dating when visiting. Nonetheless, there are many Muslim (as well as other religions) singles looking for interracial relationships with westerners.

Analytics from SimilarWeb highlights that 49% of the 1.21 monthly visits came from Indonesia. Since most of the Indonesian members are female that highlights that we might be under-estimating females in the gender ratio figures. Cupid Media doesn’t give precise figures.

The signup process is straightforward and should take you less than 5 minutes. You will begin by filling out your personal details like name, location, age, and gender. You will also be asked to provide your email address and create a password for IndonesianCupid. You can use your Facebook account to signup – which is extremely fast – and your details will automatically be filled on your profile. Your profile picture will be the same as that on Facebook, but you can change this whenever you want. The next step is to fill out more details about yourself like hobbies, personalities, likes, and dislikes. Having a complete profile increases your odds of finding a match.

Once you are done filling out your profile, it is now time to view other members on the IndonesianCupid platform and find a match. You will find a heart-shaped button next to profiles that you can click to show interest. Your profile characteristics are displayed side-by-side with a preferred match. Through this, you can see your similarities. The CupidTags help highlight your profile through keywords that best describe who you are.

The search feature on the site is very simple. You can start with the basic search that lets you locate matches based on location, age, or gender. Next is the advanced search that expands your search options to include things like height, weight, ethnicity, and religion. You can also engage other online members. The popular search identifies members who are new, live near you or are the most popular on the site. When you are locating for matches ensure that your profile is complete because this will form the basis for finding the ideal match. You can view your search results in four easy ways – by photo only, photo and some basic information about match, a short bulb with some basic information and lastly by the member’s full profile (includes all of the other three). You can narrow down the search to include certain preferences in a partner like whether they smoke, have kids, or even their star sign.

The site does not do well when it comes to communication between the members. You are limited to sending interest to paid members only if you are a free member; paid members can interact with anyone on the platform. As a free member, you can send messages but cannot read your inbox unless you upgrade your membership. The messaging feature is outdated because it does not support video and audio, which are standard features in most modern sites. However, the site does stand out with its ability to filter messages based on various parameters like age, location, ethnicity or religion. This is a great feature for those who become popular on the site and receive many messages.

Indonesian Cupid membership is divided into three – free/Standard, Gold, and Premium. The standard membership enables you to: browse suggested matches, sent interest with paid members, and craft unique searches. Gold membership enables you to enjoy all the features of the standard with the addition of anonymous browsing, send interest and messages to all members on the platform, instant messaging and ad-free browsing. At the top of the food, table is the Premium account. It has all the features of the Gold and Standard plus the ability to highlight your profile as VIP, higher ranking in search results, message translation to your native language and more profile space. Note that the subscription costs automatically renew at the end of your subscribed period, unless you cancel it. You can pay through credit cards or PayPal.

An interactive blog and forum would help the site stand out. This would give members an opportunity to interact with each other on various topics that concern them. It could also give dating tips to those members who are clueless. Most of the Indonesian women singles are in search of foreign men, and you see considerable interest whenever a western man opens an account. The site is used by those seeking both long-term and, to a lesser extent, casual hookups. A large number of expatriates are on the site for both.

The website comes with an interactive mobile App that you can easily download on Google App store. You will find most of the features on the desktop version. Once you login to the app you will find all your features displayed on the homepage with an emphasis on members photos. Once you have identified profiles that you like you can show interest by clicking on the heart-shaped button. By double-clicking on the profile, you will learn more about the person. The App is great for interacting with other members while on the go; the app notifications ensure that you do not miss out on a potential date.

Like most Cupid Media sites, IndonesianCupid consists of a clean page that is easy to navigate. Most used icons are easily displayed on the homepage. Signing up and setting up your profile is straightforward and takes you less than 5 minutes – with Facebook signup being faster. To enhance your browsing experience with Indonesian Cupid, you will need to install the latest version of Flash Player and enable cookies and pop-ups. Indonesian Cupid offers a website devoid of annoying ads which makes your browsing a delight. It, however, feels like you are navigating a very old website due to the minimalistic use of graphics on the platform.

There is a timeout of 20 minutes for inactive accounts which is meant to protect your account. There is no mandatory verification of emails, but the site administrators regularly weed out the site of fake profiles. Paid members have the option of hiding their profile and surfing anonymously. Users are advised to follow all the terms and regulations on the site – failure to do this could lead to permanent termination of your account. You can also report any suspicious/annoying behavior by other users to the IndonesianCupid administrators, and they can investigate the account.
