ChinaLoveCupid is a mail order bride service presented in the style of a traditional dating site. They offer the opportunity for Western men to meet beautiful women from China online. Those expecting the full "mail order bride" service of romance tours and visa services will be disappointed despite some great features for getting to know the girls. Users familiar with Internationalcupid.com will notice that ChinaLoveCupid is almost exactly the same. Being powered by CupidMedia, apart from some superficial design features, everything is the same, from the members' database to the features set. Accordingly, although we attempt to draw attention to the differences, our two reviews for these products are somewhat similar.
Being more like a traditional online dating site, ChinaLoveCupid starts by asking users to create a profile in order to get using the free membership. Although this can take a while, if you plan to meet that special someone online introducing yourself through a detailed profile can really boost your chances. This out of the way, users can get down to browsing the site's profiles which is made especially pleasurable by the high number of high quality photos.
Eventually (and hopefully) you will want to get in touch with someone who catches your eye. The free membership is ok to start of with and establishing limited contact, however to really get to know the girls you'll most likely need to upgrade to a paying membership. Even though just paying one month is not too expensive, like almost all products in this category, paying several months in advance will lead to significant savings. Users enjoy a different level of access to features according to their membership. While Gold members will be able to maintain correspondence with other users, if you plan to develop a relationship online Platinum membership will really help with its video chat and voice message features.
We especially liked the online translation feature available at ChinaLoveCupid which is excellent for breaking down those inevitable language barriers without having to flip between your chat and a dictionary every few minutes. We also liked being able to see who had been checking us out; a nice little ego boost! Although users can send flowers to china, this is the closest you'll get to bringing your online experience to the real world with ChinaLoveCupid. No services for organizing a romance trip or visa advice are offered and in this you will be on your own. This shouldn't be a problem with those used to international travel, however those less confident should look elsewhere.
Simply as a tool for getting in touch with a potential future bride, ChinaLoveCupid may be useful. However, don't expect the full service with bells on. At a low price this well designed feature packed site is easy to use and effective. Yet if it is a romance tour and visa services you are after, we recommend you check out one of the more traditional mail order bride sites in our Top10.
