ThaiCupid is one of the websites that belong to the Cupid Media company - a giant of online dating, and it is Thailand's largest online dating site. Moreover, this platform was among the first Thai dating websites, which is great: if it still exists, it is reliable and, well, should work. We’ve found plenty of success stories that happened owing to the TC website, and we believe that more than 1,5 million people want their life stories to be successful as well because all of them have the accounts on this platform. Quite an impressive number...
Our dear readers, we want to emphasize that this review is based on our own research only, hence, any words like ‘top,’ ‘best,’ etc. regarding the reviewed dating service is solely our team’s opinion.
Well, let’s see what makes this dating site so attractive for people.
Pros vs. Cons
- Anyone can join for free
- A huge base of members
- Translation of messages is available for paying users
- Detailed profiles
- Both Android and iOS apps
- The majority of the features are paid
- It would be great if Platinum subscription offered more features
Registration & Sign Up
On ThaiCupid, you can create an account for free (both men and women). It will take you only a minute. You can log in via Facebook (the site’s system will import all the needed data from your Facebook account to create one on the TC website). Or you can choose another way to register - via email. You just need to answer some simple questions about your name, age, and gender.
Usually, online dating platforms offer a personality test, but this website doesn’t have one for you. But you still will get your perfect matches lists - if you fill out your profile with at least something, of course.
After the registration, you can have a look at the profiles on the site for free (sounds great, right?). Btw, there are girls from all the regions of Thailand, but mostly from the two cities - Bangkok and Phuket. To start communicating with them, you should upgrade your account.
Design and Interface
The design is simple and minimalistic (almost the same as its “brothers” from CupidMedia family). You will easily find all the needed buttons, so you will never “get lost” on this site. Still, this design may be a bit boring for the young generation: they usually like bright accents and dynamic elements. But it makes TC website extremely easy to use.
Almost all the profiles on this website provide a lot of useful information about users, for example, a member can specify if he is looking for a friend or for a person to marry or is looking for someone to help him/her to learn a foreign language. Moreover, they can specify if they already have children and how many of them they have; the country they were born in; their hobbies, and other important things.
A lot of profiles have not only the main photos but the photo galleries as well! You can upload several photos too for the girls to see your face and attractive smiles better.
As we have already mentioned, ThaiCupid offers ID verification.
Features and Communication Tools
On this website, you can enjoy the following services:
- "Interested in me": the profiles of users who have sent an interest to you will appear in this section.
- "In your favorites": this function tells you how many and which members have added you to the list of favorite profiles.
- "Profile visits": you can see the list of members who have visited your personal page at least once.
Also, there is one more useful thing that can be found in the profile of any subscriber: it is the "last active" sign. If you see that a woman you like is online but you haven’t received an answer from her (or a notification that she has read your message), she might be communicating with someone else or just be not interested in you. Give her some time anyway, but don’t focus on just one person on this platform - there are a lot of people and someone may be a lot more talkative and open.
If you do not want to upgrade your membership, the number of features you can use will be limited. You can only send interests to the other users and use the search tool. But is it enough to find a partner? Our team believes that love is worth some effort and, well, investment. Check the ThaiCupid’s Gold and Platinum subscriptions - they offer a lot more helpful features.
The Gold subscription will provide you with unlimited messaging, will allow you to use the site without no ads, to show up on the top of the search, use the advanced search with more filters - these are essential features to make online dating effective. Hence, it is crucial to pay at least for the Gold subscription.
The Platinum subscription does not offer a lot of new services, only the translating messages feature.
For the Gold subscription, you will pay:
- $34.99 for 1 month
- $69.98 for 3 months
- $139.99 for 12 months
The rates for the Platinum subscription are:
- $39.99 for 1 month
