Many men in the United States are looking for a lovely Latinalicous woman to share their life/bed with. Sadly, tons of sites
similar to this one, have been proven to be filled with scams, hidden fees, and just about anything sketchy you can
However, LatinAmericanCupid.com seems to be a breath of fresh air in the wonderful world of online dating. Let's find out why.
Off to a bad start, LatinAmericanCupid's website wouldn't load for me at all. After a few failed attempts,
browser changes, and some good ol' fashion frustration, I finally got through to check out the sign-up process.
Most dating sites have a short sign-up process that usually takes no more than 5 minutes, but not LatinAmericanCupid. I spent a solid twenty minutes just trying to fill out some detailed questions to include on my profile. I don't see this as a problem as long as it comes into play later when I'm meeting my matches.
Likes, dislikes, favorite books, hobbies, you name it. This site goes deeper than most I've signed up for, and I like that.
It looks like there's no actual matchmaking system on this site and you need a paid membership if you want to interact with anyone on the site. Not unusual, but not super promising.
After browsing all the girls on this site for a little while, it's easy to tell that it's mainly just women from Latin foreign countries who are trying to find an American husband. But, hey. Who doesn't want to sexy Latina wife to share a bed with?
Unfortunately, LatinAmericanCupid doesn't really have a lot of features. Everything they've got seems pretty
standard, but when you take a closer look, you can see that they made some improvements.
If you're a paid member of the site, you can record and set your very own personal greeting for your profile. I've always found this feature to be kind of cheesy - like an OkCupid profile from 2003.
There's also an IM feature that lets you send messages back and forth to your matches. A lot like Tinder, these IM's can easily lead to something much more exciting. All you've got to do is play your cards right.
In order to help you find your best matches possible, this site has a "CupidTags" feature. This lets you add certain activities/traits/ideas to your profile to help pair you up with a girl that'll drive you crazy in the best ways possible.
Using the free membership can be amusing for a time, but after about 30 minutes and a couple of matches, it's
obvious that if you don't have a paid membership, you're pretty much fucked.
If you want full access to all of the dankest features this site has to offer you're going to have to cough up some cash. If you want to try out a one-month membership, you can do that by handing over $29.98. Kind of pricey but nothing over the top. I've seen sites that charge over $40 a month including hidden fees so I feel like this isn't as bad as it could be.
If you want to save 33% on your monthly-renewed membership, then you can go with the three-month option at $19.99 a month ($59.97).
If you're really committed to finding your perfect Latin sweetheart then you can take advantage of the one-year membership for only $9.24 a month and save 69%. That'll total up to be $110.88.
Plain and simple; it works. It's not some shady dating site where you have to pay for 'tokens' or 'credits.' You
just pay the membership fees, and you can match, chat, and meet up with any of these Latin beauties. After seeing
so many sketchy dating sites whose the main goal is to fuck over their male clients, it's nice to see one
actually provide instead of just taking away.
Something else that's great about using LatinAmericanCupid is the fact that there are so many people using it. There's never a dull moment when there are over 2,500 active members on at any given time. Whenever there are a lot of active members on a dating site, it means there's also an amazing community there. Extra points for this.
The "CupidTags' feature makes finding your perfect match easy as pie. I know a lot of sites have this feature, but it's still nice to a site where it actually works. I matched with a girl that had almost the exact same interests as me, and we actually chatted for a good bit of time before she found out I was dirt poor.
There's also a great privacy system for users who don't want their profiles being shared all over the internet. Nothing makes internet dating shitier than realizing the entire world knows all your strengths, weaknesses, fears, dreams, etc. Yikes.
When I said 'community' earlier, I didn't mean like a forum-based community. I meant, everyone is nice and
polite. There aren't any weirdos daying pervy stuff to the women on the site. I guess I'm just kind of bummed
there aren't any forum systems for people to chat and meet each other. The whole thing is a little too private.
One of my biggest problems with the site, however, is how much you pay for the site vs. what you get in return. I expect at least one key feature that is creative and unique to the site. Otherwise, I might just as well use Tinder to find a Latina girlfriend
The site is just kind of... bland. If I'm committing myself to a full year of membership fees, it only makes sense that I should get some cool new ways to meet Latina hotties in return. You know?
LatinAmericanCupid may seem like the kind of place where you go to meet your ideal Latin hunny to treat right and
grow old with. Well, if you thought that - you'd be right. This site, although expensive, does exactly what it
was made for.
With minimal effort, you can meet tons of cute Latina girls from anywhere in the world who want to meet you right back. Even though it's a bit pricey and doesn't offer any cool features, the matchmaking system is top of the line, and there are no sketchy fees involved.
For me, that's enough to land this site a well deserved 3/5 stars. Quite good. Not incredible.
