Our Review

DominicanCupid is one of the niche dating websites offered by Cupid Media (same creator of Muslima, AfroRomance, and FilipinoCupid). It was launched in 2006 and since then, it already gained over 400,000 members who are mostly from the United States, Germany, and other countries of Spanish descent. Such countries include the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and Venezuela. DominicanCupid makes it possible for women from South American countries meet their rightful match from anywhere in the world.

  • You get a personal profile which you can fill out
  • Over 400,000 users worldwide
  • Most users come from the US, Germany, and the Philippines
  • Users are often looking for love and relationships
  • There are only a few female premium members

The member base of DominicanCupid is composed mainly of users from the United States, Germany, and Dominican Republic. Majority of the female users are Dominicans or have Latin roots, while the male population is mostly composed of Caucasians. There are also native Dominicans and users from other countries of Latin America that are men who are looking to date their own race. The age range of the members of DominicanCupid varies by gender. Female users are mostly 25-36 years old, while male members are older—35-49 years old. We did not come across any female user who has a premium membership, but there are some male users who have a platinum or gold membership. This suggests that female users probably expect men to initiate the conversation.

There is hardly any fake profile found on DominicanCupid as the website suspends accounts that seem suspicious and are low quality after just a couple of hours from their creation.

Signing Up

DominicanCupid Registration
  • 1-3 Minutes needed for sign-up
  • Profile photo upload not required
  • No email verification needed
  • Able to join via email or Facebook
  • Account creation requires basic personal information

Signing up in DominicanCupid is very quick—it only takes less than 3 minutes to create an account. You only need to provide basic information such as your first name, age, and gender. You also need to put your email and nominated password. To make registration faster, you can use Facebook as well to create an account.

In DominicanCupid, you don’t need to verify your email and identity. You also don’t need to provide a profile photo on the spot. However, the moderators might see this as suspicious and they might suspend your account after a few hours.

Making Contact

DominicanCupid Search
  • Sending of hearts is free
  • Sending messages is a paid feature
  • Free members are able to reply to messages
  • Put the contacts you like in your favourites list
  • Match suggestions are based on personal matching criteria
  • Advanced search filters available
  • There is a chatroom

Contacting in DominicanCupid is a pleasant experience if you are a premium-paying member. When you have a paid subscription, you are able to send messages to any user you like. They could also reply to your messages even if they are free members. What’s more, you could see the members who viewed your profile and who put you in their favourites list.

For free members, the only contacting activity you could do is to send hearts. But sending hearts could still catch a premium user’s attention. And when he decides to send you a message, communication with that user gets unlocked.

As for the search features of DomincanCupid, it can be very detailed. The extent of the search filters you can use depends on your membership. However, even with a free plan, users can still use the main search tabs such as searching by cupid tags, by matching criteria, and popular topic searches.

Profile Quality

DominicanCupid Profile
  • Photo gallery can hold up to 5 photos for free members
  • Free members are able to view other member profiles
  • Profile photos are visible for everyone
  • Users can earn a verified badge (to be placed on their profiles) after completing a verification process
  • Premium members have a symbol that indicates their paid membership
  • The profiles are quite detailed
  • Profile information and profile photo can be uploaded and changed later

Most users in DominicanCupid fill out only their personal information. Details about what they are looking for in a partner are usually left to the default answer which is ‘Any’. The profile features a huge profile photo on the left, and a quick view of that user’s very basic information on the right. The photo gallery lies under the quick view section where free members can upload up to five photos. Under this area, more details can be found. There is a sidebar on the left where the ‘Block User’ and ‘Report Abuse’ security buttons are easily accessed.

In DominicanCupid, there is no need to verify your email address for account verification. However, you could have a green verified badge that would always be placed beside your name--whether in member search results or profile view. You need to send a clear and readable valid ID to DominicanCuipd's support team to validate your identity and earn this badge. This verification process is optional. It just shows to other users that your profile is authentic.

App

DominicanCupid App
  • Clean design and easy navigation
  • Offers the same features as the website
  • Member suggestions rarely refresh

The app version of DominicanCupid offers the same features as the website. The features are organised on a collapsible menu, while there are four icons at the top of the app’s home page for the contacting features. These features are: the list of people who have shown interest on you, who added you to their favourite list, who viewed your profile, and your message inbox. While navigation is easy, searching members and keeping track of your interaction may become a bit of a hassle. Members are displayed in a linear arrangement on any of the member search tabs, and the results rarely refresh even if you had already put a user on your favourites list.

Real Life Review

Back in my 20s and 30s, I dated a lot of girls with the same race as mine but I wasn’t truly happy. Then I dated this Latina and boy did she blow my mind! I loved her accent and how she moved on the dance floor. Sadly, she didn’t love me the way I loved her. And so I realised that maybe I really didn’t like dating white people. I liked women of colour, especially those that have Spanish roots. I figured maybe I could meet the one online since I lived in the US. So I decided to signup to DominicanCupid and got myself a gold membership. I’ve been in the site for more than 8 months and so far my experience has been a blast. I found a woman that I like and we’ve been talking for almost 6 months now. We are exclusively dating online. She’s coming to see me next month when she visits New Zealand. I am truly excited, and in your late 40s, you don’t get to be excited about this kind of stuff anymore. But I can’t believe she’s coming to see me! I am hopeful and I have a good feeling that she’s the one. - Bill, 48, Businessman

Design and Usability

DominicanCupid has a clean design that sticks to its brand colours of white and shades of sky blue. All tabs are organised on the top menu bar, and more action buttons can be found on the sidebar of each tab. It is fairly easy to navigate through the website. Every feature is accessible on all pages. Contacting buttons can be easily found on the side of each member profile, and on member searches, these buttons appear when you hover on a profile photo

Editors Conclusion

Photo Chris
Overall, DominicanCupid is an adequate dating website for men who are looking for women with Hispanic blood, especially lovely Dominican women. Its huge member base coming from the Dominican Republic makes it the largest network where Dominican women are open to meeting men with Kiwi roots. If you are one of those men, it would be better to get a premium membership as most female users do not have a premium membership. A premium membership allows you to send messages to other users and they can reply to your messages as well for free. Getting a Gold membership would do, as most Dominicans know how to speak English very well, therefore you won’t be needing the additional feature of ‘Message Translation’ in the Platinum membership. Signing up is easy and most of all, it’s free. So if you are seeking a Dominican woman, it might be worth a shot.
