ColombianCupid not only caters to heterosexual members but also members of the LGTB community.
Creating a Profile
All that is required to create an account on ColombianCupid is to provide a name, your gender, whether you are seeking a man or a woman, age, email address, and create a password. It is that easy! Users also have the option of creating an account through their Facebook account. Whichever way you choose to create your account, it will not take much of your time at all. Once your account is created you will have instant access to other members’ profiles. You will also be encouraged to upload a photo, as members with photos get 10 times more attention.
Once your account is created, you can complete your profile by answering the inquiries located in the profile tabs, under Profile settings. Having to complete your profile this way makes it easy, as you can focus on each tab at your own pace. The tabs included are Photos, Profile, Match, Interest, Personality, Cupid Tags, Verify Profile, and IMBRA. By completing the inquiries in the tabs, you will facilitate the process of ColombianCupid finding matches for you, and it will also be easier for other members to find you. Once each tab is completed, the tab will display a green checkmark instead of a red mark. If your profile is not completed, ColombianCupid will prompt you to complete it, with pop-notifications as you are using the site.
Using the Site
ColombianCupid has a cookie-cutter display template just like the other Cupid Media dating sites. With that being said, you can expect the site to be easy to use and maneuver. The organization of the layout makes it possible to find matches, use search filters, edit your profile, and be able to communicate with other members with no difficulty. Members’ profiles are also easy to read and use. The profiles will display whether the member is verified, whether they are paying members, their demographical information, when they were last active, their photos, and any information they decided to share about themselves and the match they are seeking. Members’ profiles will also display the areas where both of you match and the areas where you do not match. This information is gathered when users fill out the tabs on their profile settings. You will find that some profiles are written in English, and other profiles are written in the members’ native language.
In terms of being able to communicate with other members, you will not be able to do much on a standard membership. The only features you can use on a free membership is sending interests, adding members to your favorites, and sending messages. The other member however, cannot read your messages unless one of you has upgraded to a paid membership. If you do decide to upgrade, you will have access to additional features and any member will be able to read your messages.
Finding a Match
ColombianCupid offers search filters for their members to find their match. You can narrow down members by many different things allowing you to be as specific as you want to find the special person you are looking for. ColombianCupid allows users to search for members by demographical information or personal interest. You can also search members by keywords, CupidTags, first names, member number, and popular searches. This is why it is important for members to have a completed profile, as it increases their chances of coming up in search results. If there is a member that you are really interested in, you will want to make note of their member number, CupidTags, first name, or add them to your favorites, as this will facilitate the process of finding them the next time you log in.
You will find that some members have a completed profile, while others have rarely anything. The members that usually have a completed profile are verified or have upgraded to a paid membership. This difference in profile completeness demonstrates how serious each person is about finding their special someone on this dating platform.
ColombianCupid is accessible through its website and its mobile app. The mobile app however, is only available for Android users but not iOS users. iOS users can access ColombianCupid through their mobile web browser. ColombianCupid has four stars out of 680 reviews on the Google Play Store. Most of the users appear to like the app; the few complaints had to do with members’ accounts being terminated by ColombianCupid for no apparent reason, and users also questioning the authenticity of ColombianCupid’s members.
Like other Cupid Media’s mobile apps, you can expect ColombianCupid’s mobile app design to be easy to use and read. You have access to all of your matches and can use the same features as their website counterpart. You will also have to upgrade if you wish to use the special features not found on a standard membership. The app will also notify you if members are trying to contact you, and you can easily contact them. The mobile app layout display differs from the website version, but all the functionalities are still the same.
As an operating site of Cupid Media, you can expect ColombianCupid to provide a safe and secure online dating environment for its members. ColombianCupid, like its sister sites, are all McAfee SECURE certified. Members can utilize this dating platform without having to worry about malware, malicious links, or phishing. All of Cupid Media’s sites also have an advanced fraud-prevention system in place that really minimizes the chances of having fakes or frauds participate on any of their platforms. A downside to this advanced-fraud prevention system is that sometimes members’ profiles become terminated or suspended by mistake. If this occurs, members have the option of appealing their authenticity and submit photocopies of their identification or contacting customer service directly.
Members can also report any members that appear malicious or fake as well. In fact, ColombianCupid encourages members to do so to continue to foster a secure dating environment for its members. Another way that ColombianCupid cultivates a safe environment for its members is by offering verification badges, which are granted only to members that confirm their identity by submitting proper documentation, such as, photocopies of their government-issued ID or passport. Having a verification badge also boosts members’ search rankings, as having one assures other users that they are indeed communicating with a real person.

Cupid Media’s dating platforms all offer two different memberships, the Platinum and the Gold. ColombianCupid, like its sister dating sites, all recommend users to choose the Platinum membership as it unlocks all of the features that each dating platform offers. The Gold membership does not unlock all of the features but does allow users to use features that you cannot use on a free membership.
The Platinum membership offers three different monthly subscriptions, 12 months for $12.50, billed in one payment of $149.99; 3 months for $23.33, billed in one payment of $69.98; and 1 month for $34.99. With this membership, not only will you be able to use the features offered with Gold membership, but you will also be able to rank above members, double your profile space, use VIP profile highlighting, use exclusive search filters, use advanced matching algorithms, and translate messages into your language.

How do I add a photo to my profile?
ColombianCupid offers many different options for you to add a photo to your profile. You can access your Photo Management page by choosing “Photos” from the member menu (represented by your profile photo or the photo placeholder next to Setting menu). From your Photo Management page, you can add a photo directly from your computer, or copy photos from your Facebook account. If these options aren’t suitable for you, you can click the “Can’t upload photos? Try these alternatives.
How do I translate profiles?
The “Member Overview” and “Seeking” sections of profiles are automatically translated for you. The translation is based on your language preference and the language preference of the member whose profile you are viewing. For example, if your language preference is English and you view the profile of a member whose language preference is Russian, the member’s profile will be automatically translated for you. However, if the Russian member has their language preference set to English, but writes their profile in Russian, the profile will not be translated. Please note that as this is an automated system, if the member’s profile contains spelling or grammar errors it may not translate correctly.
What are the membership options available?
There are three grades of membership on ColombianCupid.com: Standard, Gold, and Platinum. Standard membership is free and allows you to send interest to other members and communicate with Gold and Platinum members. Gold members can communicate with all members of the site, regardless of their member grade. Platinum members have access to all site features, including advanced matching features, message translation services, and Profile Notes.
What is the photo approval process?
Photos are reviewed by ColombianCupid to ensure they comply with their photo requirements, for example, your face can be seen clearly and your photo is not offensive. This process is usually completed within 24 to 48 hours.
