Indian Cupid

Our Review

Indian Cupid is an online dating and matrimonial site for people who want to meet with Indian singles around the world. Although fixed marriage is one tradition that is more common in India, single individuals are freer to choose their partners nowadays. Nevertheless, some factors such as religion, caste, family type, physical appearance, and economic status are still being taken into consideration when it comes to the matchmaking process.

That's exactly what Indian Cupid has to offer its members-- comprehensive criteria that you can customise to find your best match. Since its launch in the year 2000, the dating site has brought several individuals together. What's good about Indian Cupid is that being an Indian is not a requirement! You can come from anywhere across the globe who is simply interested in meeting an Indian partner.

Being one of the Cupid Media sites, Indian Cupid employs fraud prevention system and random user checks to ensure the security of the members.

      Indian Cupid Real Life Review

      "It was my first time to use a dating site. Being new to Indian Cupid and to the dating site world, I did not have a hard time using the app. It was referred to me by a friend who is using the Filipino Cupid app. I've been using Indian Cupid since July last year and easily matched and made several friends during the first month, not only from India but from all over the world. After a month, I upgraded my account to platinum. Good thing I did! I would not have met Sanayah if I did not decide to upgrade. She's a standard member from India who was also interested in making friends and dating, just like me. I've been in the US since I was 10 and a few weeks from now, I'm coming back to my birthplace to meet with my special friend and her family. A lot of thanks to Indian Cupid. Can't wait to finally meet her!" -Sandee, 30

      Design and Usability

      Overall, the design and layout of Indian Cupid are basic, simple, and clean. This makes it easy, even first-time users, to explore either the site or the mobile app. It follows a similar design like the other Cupid sites with its trademark red and white colours.

      The features of the site are very accessible with the tabs located on top of the page and drop-down menus. The mobile app, on the other hand, has the sidebars. Despite its not-so-modern design, the Indian Cupid platforms effectively serve their purpose in providing a fun and convenient online dating experience to its members all over the world.
