Our Review

With over 3.5 million users worldwide, FilipinoCupid (formerly known as Filipina Heart) is one of the most successful and popular dating sites that specifically cater to matching Filipinos to people from Western backgrounds. It is created and operated by Cupid Media (same developers as AsianDating, Muslima, and PinkCupid), who is known for their credible portfolio of different niche dating websites. FilipinoCupid aims for people of Western descent to find love from the beautiful islands of the Philippines.

  • You get a personal profile which you can fill out
  • 3.5 Million users worldwide
  • Most female members are from the Philippines
  • Male users are usually from Western countries
  • Most users come from the US and the Philippines
  • Users are often looking for love and relationships

Majority of male members of FilipinoCupid come from the United States and European countries, while female members are of Filipino descent. Most female users are within the age range of 25-44, while the male member base is condensed within the 35-54 years of age. There are hardly any female users who have a premium membership, but a lot of male Western users have one. This clearly shows that the men like to be proactive in this dating website when it comes to interaction and contacting the other gender. However, when it comes to having a verified badge, there are more female profiles who have them than men.

Most users—whether male or female—indicate in their profiles that they are looking for love or for someone to have a serious relationship with. Clearly, this is not the website for hookups—whether online or offline.

Signing Up

FilipinoCupid Registration
  • Account creation requires basic personal information
  • Able to join via Facebook
  • 1-3 Minutes registration
  • No verification needed
  • Profile photo upload not required

Signing up with FilipinoCupid requires you to fill out the fields of first name, gender, age, email address, and password. After this, you are immediately taken to a dashboard where a pop-up window asking for you to upload your profile photo would appear. You can choose to upload a photo later and exit this window by clicking the X button on the upper right-hand side. Another pop-up would appear after your next click on the website. This window includes fields asking you to write a profile heading, a paragraph about yourself, and a write-up of what you are looking for in a partner. Similar to the photo upload pop-up, you can opt to skip this by clicking the X button.

Making Contact

FilipinoCupid Search
  • Free sending of hearts
  • Favourites list available
  • Replying to messages is free
  • Matching algorithm is based on personal matching criteria
  • Advanced search filters available for free
  • Sending messages is strictly for premium members
  • There is a chatroom

When you hover over a profile photo in the member search, five mini icons would appear at the bottom—view profile, message user, send a heart, add to favourites list, and instant chat. Viewing the profile, sending a heart, and adding to your favourites list are the features that are free for all users. However, same with other dating websites powered by Cupid Media, sending a message in FilipinoCupid is also limited to premium paying members but replying to messages is free. FilipinoCupid makes its users feel safe by providing the "Block User and "Report Abuse" buttons on every chat box and user profile (located at the left sidebar of one's profile).

FilipinoCupid has advanced search filters available. The extent of search filter detail depends on your membership. But even with a free plan, the search filters still do wonders. Users can search using customising the personal basic information, cupid tags, by tweaking your matching preferences or browsing the different categories of popular topic searches. The popular topics that can be found on the left sidebar are my matches, most popular users, profiles with latest photo uploads, users around your area, and new members. Members can also browse the Filipina Bikini photo gallery and Glamorous Filipinas photo gallery where Filipino women submit their photo entries.

Profile Quality

FilipinoCupid Profile
  • Users can earn a verified badge (to be placed on their profiles) after completing a verification process
  • Premium paying members have a symbol on their profiles
  • Free members are able to view other member profiles
  • Profile photos are visible for everyone
  • Profile information can be added or changed later

    Profiles in FilipinoCupid indicate a good amount of information considering that all the fields have been filled out and all the “about me” optional questions, as well as the “person I am looking for” questions, have been answered. User profiles feature the profile photo on the left, and on the right is a quick view of relevant personal information such as education, children, religion, and occupation. There is also an indicator—a green circle—if you match that user’s preferences. If it’s not a match, a red "X" would be seen. Right below this sits the user’s photo gallery.

    More details can be found at the bottom part of the user’s profile. This information lies right below the member overview section which displays the user’s own written paragraph. Information regarding appearance, lifestyle, background & cultural values, hobbies & interests are shown together with an indicator (similar to the quick view section) if you both match each other’s criteria. At the most bottom part of the profile is the personally written paragraph of that user about the person he or she is seeking.

    App

    filipinocupid app
    • Easy navigation on the app
    • Clean design
    • Contacting buttons are easily accessible
    • Member suggestions rarely refresh

    The app version of FilipinoCupid does not have any additional features as its website counterpart. In fact, the mobile app tends to be inefficient in making a user meet other users even with its easily accessible contact buttons and very clean design. This is because the member search results rarely refresh and the results are shown in a linear layout. The results show the profile photos of member matches, which take up almost the whole phone screen. It can be a bit tedious to keep on scrolling to view the other profiles. Also, even if you have interacted with a member, like for instance you have put him or her on your favourite list or sent him or her a heart, that user profile would still remain on its original place in the member search results.

    Real Life Review

    There’s something about Filipinas that make the average white guy like me trip and fall over. Seriously! I went to the Philippines about 6 months ago and I couldn’t stop thinking about the beautiful Filipinos i’ve met and how they were so hospitable and fun to be with. I didn’t want to leave but I had a career I had to back to. And then I searched online for Asian online dating sites and came across some Filipino dating websites. I signed-up on the 2 most popular Filipino dating sites and stuck to FilipinoCupid. I’ve been a member for over 3 months and I am very happy with my experience. It’s like I’m back in the Philippines again whenever I’m chatting with the beautiful women of the island. There’s one particular user that I’ve been in constant communication with, but I don’t think we are exclusive yet. Though we made plans to meet in her country and we will go backpacking in the different countries of South East Asia together next fall. I am excited and I sure hope it would push through! - James, Chef, 32

    Design and Usability

    FilipinoCupid presents a clean and well-designed interface that makes the dating site very easy to use and aesthetically pleasing to the eyes. They stick to their brand colours of salmon red and white. Navigating through the different contact and search features are made trouble-free by the tabs and labels seen on every part of the website. The menu bar has the main features of the website, while the sidebars contain the specifics of the features such as search filters and message inbox details. For the other tabs, ads about FilipinoCupid are shown.
