By offering a language option, LatinAmericanCupid opens the door to members around the globe, making it possible to increase their online dating community.
Creating a profile on LatinAmericanCupid is one of the fastest ones to create, compared to other dating sites. To begin creating a profile on LatinAmericanCupid, you must first indicate your name, gender, sexual orientation, age, email address and create a password. The email address does not require verification. These inquiries are all presented at once, instead of one at a time like other dating sites, because of this, it is very fast to complete. You can also sign up using your Facebook account. Once you create your credentials you are prompted to upload a picture, however, this can be skipped and uploaded at a later time. Members can upload up to five photos, from either their Facebook account or their direct files. After you upload or skip the option of adding a photo, the user will have access to their profile and be able to view members around the world.
LatinAmericanCupid does a good job of providing additional profile tabs that allow members to go back and complete their profile. These profile tabs allows members to go as in depth as they want about themselves and of the partner they are seeking. The tabs provided are Photos, Profile, Match, Interest, Personality, Cupid Tags, Verify Profile, and IMBRA.
The Profile tab, allows members to provide personal information about themselves such as, their appearance, lifestyle, background, and even super personal questions such as bust, waist, and hips measurements. The user can also create a profile heading, along with sharing a little about themselves and what they are looking for in a partner.
The Match tab, allows users to provide information regarding the type of match that they are seeking, by answering questions about the matches’ appearance, lifestyle, background/cultural values, and religion. The information provided in this tab will help LatinAmericanCupid find matches for you.
The Interest tab provides questions that members can answer to inform others what their interests are. The information provided in this tab will also be used to connect with other members who share the same interests.
The Personality tab provides the user with personality questions that members can answer to depict a glimpse of who they are. Members can choose up to seven questions to answer. The Cupid Tags tab, allows members to add tags to their profile to make searching easier and help them find other members with the same commonalities. The Verify Profile tab provides members the opportunity to gain a verification badge by uploading or scanning a copy or photo of their identification. The IMBRA tab provides members the opportunity to complete the International Marriage Brokers Act safety form. LatinAmericanCupid uses this form as a means to protect the safety of its members.
Members can take their time to answer all of the inquiries in each tab at their own pace.

By members completing all of the tabs, they will be able to find and be found by compatible matches.
Using the Site
LatinAmericanCupid makes its layout and design easy to use and maneuver. Upon logging in to your account, you have access to tabs on top of the page that includes, Members Online, Matches, Search, Messages, and Activity. At the center of the page, you have access to other members’ profiles and search filters. LatinAmericanCupid informs the user instantly when another member is interested in them or has sent them a message through a pop-up that the user can click on while they are active on their account.
Members on a free subscription are limited to what they can do on LatinAmericanCupid. Members will be able to see who is interested in them but will not be able to read any messages sent to them without a paid subscription. Messages by other members will be written in their native language; however, you can translate the message by using LatinAmericanCupid’s translating tools. These translating tools are available to members who have a Platinum membership. As a free member, you can also send messages to other members, however, only members paying a subscription will be able to read your messages, and non-paying members will have to upgrade to read your message. You can also let other members know that you are interested in them, add them to your favorites, and view their photos at no cost. If you accidentally show interest in someone or if you decide that you are no longer interested in a member than you can also remove them from your Interested and Favorites list.
While using the site we received many messages from other users, even without a photo or adding any information into our profile yet. This makes the validity of the members questionable. However, you can almost be certain that if a fake profile is participating on the site today, LatinAmericanCupid will have it deactivated and no longer will be available tomorrow, as LatinAmericanCupid uses advanced fraud prevention systems and checks members’ profiles regularly.
If you wish to get the most of LatinAmericanCupid, then you will have to upgrade to a paid membership. Contact with other members will be limited as you will not be able to read their messages. By upgrading to a paid membership you will also be able to hide your profile and browse anonymously, use live chat with instant messenger, communicate with all members and much more.
Finding a Match
LatinAmericanCupid makes it possible to find matches by using their search tool and search filters. The search filters can be very detailed to specific characteristics such as eye color, eyewear, hair type, marital status and occupation or willing to relocate, etc. There are specific search filters that are locked and only available to paying members such as Body Mass Index, Bust Cup Size, Bust measurement, Hips measurement, and Waist measurement. You can also narrow down matches by age, Country, State, City, and Miles. Advanced matching algorithms are also available for Platinum members. Matches are also available upon logging in and by clicking on the Members Online and Search tabs.
At a glance, members’ profiles will inform you if they are paying members, if they have been verified, where they are from, their age, and what they are seeking. When you click into the profile, you will be able to see all the information that the member decided to share about themselves, along with their photos. You will also find that many members have written their profiles in their native language. Members appear to really take the time to complete their profile by providing information about themselves and the type of match they are seeking. This makes it possible to determine compatibility amongst members, facilitating the process of finding their potential match.
LatinAmericanCupid is available through its website and mobile app. The mobile app is only available through the Google Play Store but not for iOS users. The mobile app has 4 stars out of 2,351 reviews. Users appear to like the mobile app for the most part. The few complaints had to do with technical issues and the authenticity of the members.
Upon logging in to the mobile app, you immediately have access to members’ profiles. You also have access to the menu option and four tabs. The tabs included are, who is interested in you, messages, favorite list, and views. This simple layout makes it easy to read and use.

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.
How do I translate messages?
Platinum members may use the Translation tool to translate messages from other members. Gold and Standard members may also translate messages they receive from Platinum members.
When viewing a message you wish to translate, click the “Translate” link. The message will be translated based on your language preference and the language preference of the person you are communicating with, and will appear under the original message. If you wish to change the translation to a different language pair, click the “Retranslate” link and choose a different language pair, then click “Submit”.
Please note that as this is an automated system, if the member’s message contains spelling or grammar errors it may not translate correctly.
What is the profile approval process?
What does “Show Interest” mean and how does it work?
If you’re browsing members and see someone you’re interested in, and are not ready or able to send a message yet, clicking the “Show Interest” button (represented by a heart icon) is a great way to break the ice. The member will be notified that someone is interested in them, and they may show interest back to you. If they do, you may like to send them a message to develop your blossoming relationship further. You may only show interest in a member once.
How do I find out who is interested in me?
When members show interest in you, they are added to your “Interested in Me” list. You can access this list by choosing “Interested In Me” from the Activity menu.
How do I hide or unhide my profile?
You can set your profile status to “Visible” or “Hidden”. To change your profile visibility setting, choose “Profile Settings” from the Settings menu. Click either “Display my profile to users” or “Hide my profile from users”, then click the Save button. Please note that the Hide Profile feature is only available to premium members. Standard members are not able to hide their profile.
