Latin American Cupid is a site for people looking to date Latinas or Latinos living in Latin America or anywhere else in the world. I’ve been a member for about a year and a half now and have gone out with several girls from it.
If you want a head start on hooking up in Latin America or just practicing your (Hookup) Spanish, this review is my honest take on it.
Online since 2003 it now has over 1,000,000 members. They used to put the number of members on their home page but they took it down, probably so competitors don’t know their membership numbers or how fast it’s growing.
It’s normal to see 1800 or more members logged in during the day and evening. I’m logged in as I’m writing this (Thursday evening) and there are 1912 people online.
It’s a simple, well thought out site that’s easy to navigate.
Other sites run by Latin American Cupid:
Latin American Cupid runs a few other sites that focus on Latins from a specific Latin American country- Colombian Cupid, Brazil Cupid, Mexican Cupid, Dominican Cupid. Each site also has Latina women living outside the focus country. Design and navigation are similar to Latin American Cupid.
For the guys reading this:
Though Latinas living in Latin America make up the majority of the members there are also Latin women living in the USA, Canada, Europe and other places across the world.
I’ve been happy with the Latinas I’ve met through this site both in terms of beauty and personality. Naturally not every girl on the site is going to be a runway model with a prefect personality but you won’t have a problem finding attractive, high quality women.
This evening from 6:12pm until 8:28pm I have 9 Latinas “showing interest.” This is the same as sending me a “wink” or whatever they call them on other sites. Basically a way to initiate contact. Maybe in my next blog post I’ll give an overview of the 9 girls tonight so you get an idea of what kind of women could be contacting you.
The main benefit for guys planning a trip to Latin America or moving there is you can start having contact with Latinas before you even arrive in Latin America. So once you touch down there you can already have some girls lined up to meet you. This is especially handy if you’re only going to be there a short time.
The Latinas you’ll hook up with through this site tend to be of higher quality than the typical girl you would run into in Latin America. They tend to be better educated with better jobs. I’ve dated some that had their own cars (shocking!) and supplied the transportation when we got together. From my own experience, I have not run into any gold diggers.
You can sign up for free but with a free membership you can only contact paying members and less than one percent of the Latin women on the site are paying members. Paid members can contact anyone and be contacted by anyone. Basically the men pay. I think it’s fair since Western men earn more than the typical Latin woman and if the women had to pay the selection would be much more limited.
I suggest trying it with a one month membership and if you’re happy with it do what I did and get a year membership for only $8 per month. Peanuts. I’m on my second one year membership. Check out Latin American Cupid here.
For the gals reading this:
I can’t speak from experience but this is what I can tell you. There are a lot of Latin American guys on this site too. Now, if you are a girl you are not going to have a problem meeting guys while traveling in Latin America, you will get hit on plenty. The benefit from a site like this for a girl is you can screen your fellas way better than just meeting random guys on the street or in bars. You can get to know them a little better and decide if you want to meet them when you arrive.
Similar to the girls in Latin America there are few guys in Latin America that are paying members. There is a reluctance among Latinos in Latin America to use their credit/debit cards online. In order to exchange messages with the vast majority of Latin men you’ll have to be a paying member. I suggest the same thing I mentioned above. Try it for one month and if you like it you can get a year membership for $8 per month. Check out Latin American Cupid here.
