Thai Cupid is part of the Cupid Media network, so you ought to expect to receive the same great services and features that you will find on their other dating sites. That’s handy to know, but you must be wondering if there are differences between the sites. Well yes, there are a few, and they’re relatively slight but it might make a big difference to you if you’re looking specifically for Thai dating.
The biggest clue regarding the variations between these sites can be found in the website name: this site is primarily focused on helping people to find Thai dates. Or, if you’re Thai yourself perhaps you’re looking to meet someone from elsewhere who has an interest in your culture and personality. Either way, there’s plenty to like.
The site also checks on the spoken English and Thai languages of its members, so (unless they lied of course) you can tell how easy it would be to communicate in person. This could prove very useful!
You might anticipate that a website with a particular focus such as “Thai” members might have a small membership catalogue. However, quite cunningly this has been somewhat conquered by the website’s designers, who allow you to send and receive messages with gold and platinum members even if you’re not a paying member yourself. This is rare among dating websites generally but it means that even the free members are active online.
If you choose to pay, then you hold the keys when it comes to contacting individuals as you can initiate dialogue and free members can reply to your mail.
If you’re interested in instant messaging or video communications you’ll have to upgrade your membership. We’ll focus on the cost of that shortly, but first it’s significant to think about what you’re looking for and which features might benefit you.
You receive significantly more features when upgrading from basic membership to Platinum membership, the most essential of which is probably video chat. Using a webcam and mic you’ll be able to talk with and see other users, which is huge if you want to chat more intimately.
Membership costs for Thai Cupid are bit higher than AsianDating.com, although it’s not clear why exactly. Still, prices are very reasonable, particularly on the 12 month contracts. Compared with Filipino Cupid, the Thai version offers a 6 month option too.
There were well over 2,500 members online when we checked in, so there are heaps of options. Searches can also be very specific and still throw up plenty of results, so even the most pedantic users can find people who suit their ideals.
Searching is very simple and can be as basic or detailed as you wish, with the capability to save your preferences so you don’t need to keep inputting the same information.
Results are clearly displayed and the profile pages offer enough information on each member for you to get a sense of the person before you get in touch with them.
Photos tend to be relatively high quality although some are better than others. On the whole though the pictures should give a good idea of how someone looks.
There’s nothing to lose by trying out the free options on this website, especially since you can reply to paying members. If you’re looking to meet a person from Thailand or you’re Thai and hoping to find love then this could very well be the website for you.
