After sharing a bit about yourself and what your ideal partner would look like, you’re finished and free to browse profiles.
Periodically, Russian Cupid will ask you to answer a few more questions from your profile to continue on with what you were doing.
How to Communicate with Other Members When it comes to communicating with other members on Russian Cupid, the only real value lies in upgrading to a premium account.
As a free member, there are a few different options available for communicating with other free members: sending interest, adding as a favorite, visiting their profile, and sending a message (that they won’t be able to read).
Unique Site Features Russian Cupid’s detailed, in-depth profiles are one of its best features.
It will take some time to fully fill it out, but it will be time well-spent.
Overall, the site is great but only useful for those who speak Russian and/or plan to be in Russia soon.
Most of the people on the site do not speak English and are not interested in traveling to meet their matches. You can link to one of your social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, or Vkontakte), or you can enter your email address, full name, location, birthday, gender, and what gender you are looking to meet.
Russian Cupid’s match recommendations are based on the criteria you selected during the sign-up process, and thankfully you can change these criteria at any time.
You can also put together a separate search of your own, specifying things like education, religion, and location.
You can save these searches for future use, which I found helpful because new members join every day.
There will be men or women who might only be interested in helping you to part with your hard-earned cash. Just keep sending out messages and reach out until you find the person you are looking for and get success.
As is typical with online dating, expect a response rate of around 1-10% depending on how good your profile is.
