ThaiCupid caters to heterosexual singles and members of the LGTB community looking to date Thais. As previously mentioned, ThaiCupid has a large member base consisting of over 1.5 million users. Most of ThaiCupid’s members consist of men, as they comprise 85% and women only 15%. With so many male members, men will have to try a little harder to connect with women, as they are too many of them competing. Whereas women have more opportunities to meet their match, without having to vigorously compete. You will find that many of the woman members are from Thailand whereas the men are from different parts of the world and only a few from Thailand.
Although ThaiCupid is an international dating site, with many countries participating around the world, the U.S. stands out with 600,000 members participating on the site.

If you are seeking to find matches older than 44 you may have a little bit of a harder time, as there are fewer members that are older versus looking for members younger than 44.
Creating a Profile
Creating an account on ThaiCupid is very fast and easy. All that is required is providing your name, gender, whether you are seeking to meet men or women, age, email address, and create a password. No other questions are asked or required like other dating sites, making it super fast to complete. You can also choose to sign up through your Facebook account if you prefer. After this information is provided, you will be prompted to upload a photo, but it is not required to access your account. ThaiCupid however highly recommends their users to upload a photo, as members with photos get 10 times more attention. Photos can be uploaded through your Facebook account or through your direct files.
All of Cupid Media’s dating sites provides a profile setting where you can access different tabs with extensive inquires allowing the user to go as in depth as they want about themselves and the match they are seeking in their profile. ThaiCupid will display a percentage of profile completeness on your dashboard, prompting you to have a 100% completed profile. Your profile will be thoroughly complete when you answer all the inquires presented in each tab. The tabs included are, Photos, Profile, Match, Interest, Personality, CupidTags, VerifyProfile, and IMBRA. If you are not sure what tabs you want to complete first, make sure you upload a photo of yourself and complete the Profile, Match, and Interests tabs. The Profile and Interests tabs will provide information of who you are and your trait characteristics, allowing other members to find you when they use search filters. Completing these tabs also allows ThaiCupid to connect you with other users that share your same interests. All tabs will have a red exclamation icon next to them when they are not thoroughly completed, once it is completed the red icon will turn into a green checkmark. It is recommended that you have a thoroughly completed profile, as doing so will help you find potential matches.
Using the Site
The layout and design of ThaiCupid is easy to read and use. All of Cupid Media’s dating sites have the same design, but the dashbords are always a different color. ThaiCupid’s dashboard color is a combination of light and dark blue, making it easy on the eyes. The dashboard has tabs and icons that give you access to your profile, messages, interests, views, favorites, search filters, and more. You can also view other members’ profiles at the center of the page.
With a free membership you will be limited with contacting other members. You will only be able to show other members that you are interested in them, add them to your favorites, and send them messages at no cost. However, if the two of you are both free standard members the messages that you send will be blurred out and the other member will not be able to read your message, unless you or the other member upgrades. Therefore, you will get the optimal ThaiCupid experience if you upgrade, as doing so will allow any member to read your messages, regardless of their membership status, and you will unlock many other features.
Finding a Match
Finding a match on ThaiCupid will primarily consist of using search filters for free standard members. You can search for members by using basic and advanced search filters, keywords, Cupid Tags, a members’ first name, a members’ number, and popular searches. Most of the filters will be available to use at no cost. There are some filters that require a paid membership if you wish to use them, such as, Body Mass Index. If you are a man seeking a woman filters such as, Bust, Hips, and Waist measurements will also be locked until you upgrade. You will also be able to save your searches each time you change your search criteria. ThaiCupid offers many advanced search filters that allow you to be very specific and narrow down matches. You can narrow down searches by personal traits, characteristics, age, location, etc. ThaiCupid makes it possible to also find matches that are bisexual, gay or lesbian by using the Seeking filter in the Search tab. Almost every search filter is free to use unlike other dating sites.
If you do decide to upgrade to a Platinum membership, you will be able use ThaiCupid’s advanced matching algorithm, which will help you compatible matches. ThaiCupid will also provide match suggestions based on the information you provide in the Match tab under the profile settings, this is why it is important to complete that section.
Upon clicking on a members’ profile, you will be able to see their name, age, where they are from, when they were last online, their photos, and all the information they decided to share about themselves and the match they are seeking. There are profiles that are written in the members’ native language making it impossible to understand what they wrote. If you wish to communicate with a member that doesn’t speak your language you will have to upgrade to a Platinum membership to utilize their translation feature. ThaiCupid will inform you of the areas that you and another member have a match in by highlighting them in color green and areas where there is no match by highlighting it in red. This is nice, as it makes it easy to see if you and that member are compatible, and if you want to proceed in making a connection with them.
ThaiCupid is available through their website and through their mobile app. The mobile app is only available for Android users but not for iOS users. ThaiCupid’s mobile app has 3.9 stars out of 2,151 reviews. Most of the users appear to like the app, the few complaints had to do with technical issues.
ThaiCupid’s mobile app display and layout is very easy to use and read. You will have access to other members’ profiles as soon as you log in, but it will be displayed in one column versus in rows like their website counterpart. This forces you to keep scrolling down to be able to view all of the members’ profiles. When you click into a profile, you will also be informed of the areas that you and the other member have a match in, except it will have a green check mark next to the areas that are a match instead of highlighting in green, and a red X next to the areas that are not a match instead of highlighting it in red, like their website counterpart. The options to show interest, send messages, add to favorites, block user, and report abuse, are all at the bottom of each members’ profile instead of being at the top like on their website counterpart. The app has all the functionalities that the website counterpart offers, but they are all accessed differently. Nonetheless, it is still very easy to use.
ThaiCupid and all of Cupid Media’s dating sites have an advanced fraud prevention system that suspends or terminates any profile they deem fake or suspicious. If your profile happens to be one of the ones that gets terminated or suspended by mistake, you can appeal your authenticity by providing copies of proper identification such as, photo ID, Passport, or Driver License. You can also contact their customer support directly to reactivate your account.
