Our Review

Now that more people are clamouring for equal love, dating sites catering to the members of the LGBT are aplenty. BiCupid, however, is special as it is one of the pioneer dating sites for bisexuals. 

A SuccessfulMatch offering, BiCupid has over a million bisexual members worldwide. It brought the world closer by offering free-to-download mobile apps for iOS and Android users. 

Like any other dating site, BiCupid also has its fair share of controversies. Several reports claim that members are concerned with their privacy and security on-site; issues on fake accounts are also plaguing BiCupid.

To check if BiCupid is indeed the site to-be to explore your sexuality and find love, we took the time to review its every aspect. Read on as we uncover every function and detail of this bisexual dating site.

  • Records over 50,000 monthly new members globally
  • Male users outnumber the females
  • Most users are 25 years old and above
  • Couples can sign up together

Raking in over 230,000 monthly visits worldwide, BiCupid is considered one of the world’s largest bisexual dating platforms. The top users of this site are men aged 25 years old and above—the age range where males are most sexually active. 

Regardless of gender, BiCupid warmly welcomes its users to explore their sexuality in whatever set-up they can agree on. Most may use the site for casual dating and hook-ups, but a big chunk is also in search of committed relationships. Seems like BiCupid's got you covered, from flirts and flings, serious relationships, and everything in between. 

BiCupid not only caters to singles; they also have couples who may be looking to spice up their bedroom activities.

What’s probably a pleasant surprise is the dating site's inclusivity. As if serving the bisexuals isn’t enough of a statement, the doors are also wide open for other members of the rainbow community. 

With a variety of genders and personalities, BiCupid aims to create a happy and safe dating space for the LGBT.

Signing Up

BiCupid Sign Up
  • Must be at least 18 years old to sign up
  • 3-5 minutes sign up process
  • Uploading a profile picture is mandated
  • Email verification is required
  • You can register via Facebook

BiCupid’s signup process is open for singles and couples who are at least 18 years old. The process is divided into three short sections: Create Your Profile, Upload Photos, and the About You and Your Match.

To start the process, fill out the preliminary form located at the upper left portion of BiCupid’s homepage. Click the “Find My Matches” button and you’ll automatically be redirected to the registration page.

  • Create Your Profile

You will need to provide the following details in this section:

  1. What you are
  2. What are you looking for at BiCupid
  3. Age
  4. Email address
  5. Mobile number
  6. Name, username, and password
  7. Location
  8. Height
  9. Ethnicity
  10. Relationship status

BiCupid will also need your consent to their Service Agreement and Privacy Policy. If everything’s good, tick the box to show you agree and hit “Continue.”

  • Upload Your Photo

In this section, you can choose an image from your gallery or right from your Facebook account. BiCupid will verify your photos so don't be alarmed if it reads pending approval for your first few hours on-site.

Aside from choosing a flattering photo, make sure you are identifiable in the image. Go for well-lit photos that showcase your entire face. 

  • About You and Your Match

The “About You and Your Match” section requires a little creativity. You’ll be asked to come up with a headline, a description of yourself, and your image of the ideal person. You can always revisit these sections should you come up with better comebacks.

After completing the forms, BiCupid will email a verification code which you will need to key in within 10 minutes. Since it is a primary worry for members, BiCupid has been big on security. 

Make sure you verified your contact details and that you chose a good frontal photo if you don't want your account to get suspended.

Once you’re done, take your first look at BiCupid!

Making Contact

BiCupid Search
  • Initiating direct messages is a premium feature
  • Standard accounts can send unlimited winks
  • Edit blog and forum messages for free
  • Members can access the Spark feature
  • Free accounts can reply to messages from premium members

More than just being a dating site, BiCupid also is a community of bisexuals interacting with couples and other members of the LGBT community. As such, there are several contacting features members can use:

  • Add to Favourites

Don’t you just hate it when you can’t seem to find the profile who caught your eye while you were browsing? 

BiCupid took note of this and created a Favourites list. With it, you get to save the profile of members you wanted to explore for later. That way, interest may be lost but no profiles are gone forever. 

  • Wink

Start a wordless interaction by sending a flirty wink. Premium and standard members can send unlimited winks so feel free to send one to all the boys and girls you’re eyeing at BiCupid.

  • Spark

View one profile at a time with BiCupid's Spark function. Decide if its a yes or a pass based on the member's primary photo.

  • Interact in Blogs and Forums

Since BiCupid evolved into a community, its rather unique offerings are the blogs and forums. 

In the forums, members get to ask for tips and ideas for a date night or even life in general. Experiences, particularly with their being bisexual, are popular topics on blogs.

Since all the members have access to these features, the blogs and forums are fun and creative outlets to get to know other BiCupid users. 

  • Direct Message

Of course, a dating website will need to have some sort of function where members can communicate with each other one-on-one. 

Initiating a chat at BiCupid is something that only paying users can do. For standard accounts, you can only reply to messages sent by the premium members.  

Getting around BiCupid on a free account is kind of limiting: it makes you more of a lurker than an active pursuer. With a subscription, you get full access to all contacting features which can help you network and take a step closer towards landing a date or a hook-up.

Profile Quality

BiCupid Profile
  • Detailed and comprehensive member profiles
  • Easy to supply and edit information
  • Upgrade to view full-sized photos and full-length videos
  • Upload private and public photos for free
  • Premium members can view profiles anonymously

    Profiles at BiCupid are pretty detailed: read one and you get to form a pretty good impression of a person. 

    A BiCupid profile will have the following sections and details:

    • Identification

    At the topmost part of the page, the member’s primary photo, name, age, and location will be displayed. A badge will also appear here: it will tell your viewers if you are a paying member or not. 

    The description you wrote during the signup process will also be displayed, followed by a textbox that encourages other members to leave you a message.

    • Contact Options

    BiCupid’s contact features are conveniently located below the primary photo. You can either message the member, send a wink, or add them to your favourites list. 

    • Albums

    At BiCupid, you get two sets of albums: public and private albums. For the first type, premium members can see all your images without difficulty. 

    The private album will require interested parties to send you a request. What's nice about it is that you get to upload up to 26 photos for each album. 

    • Profile

    Your answers from the registration process will be featured on your profile board. To give your matches an idea of how awesome a person you are, the profile will include details on your appearance, background (ethnicity, language, and educational attainment are included here), and lifestyle. 

    The profile will also include your “About Me” write-up so members can get a glimpse of your personality.

    • Activities

    This tab will display your activities while at BiCupid. Members can directly go to this board to see the last time you uploaded a photo or the comments you’ve left; it makes nice conversation starters as they get to know how you are as a BiCupid member.

    • Comments

    The last board will display all the comments you’ve received. This boosts your credibility and popularity as visiting members get to see how popular you are. 

    Standard accounts can view complete profiles, but a subscription will come in handy when it comes to browsing the photos and videos if any. Another perk of paying is anonymous browsing—there won’t be any alerts or trills that will inform a member that you’ve been viewing their profiles.

    One of the issues BiCupid faces is the claim that there are fake profiles. During our review, we didn't receive a ton of messages, but we did notice that some standard accounts used photos of Asian models and celebrities. It seems like BiCupid's recognition of copyrighted images is limited to Western artists only.

    With this, it's rather good that all members can review profiles completely. They get to see photo thumbnails and check if a member is acting suspiciously in the Activity board. Limiting the website's usability for free accounts is a rather good move as well: frauds can't get to you. 

    App

    BiCupid App
    • Available for iOS and Android users
    • Free to download
    • Desktop features are available on mobile
    • Easy to navigate
    • Looks sleeker and more upgraded than the desktop version

    Smartphones are becoming the world’s number one gadget, so it is a plus that BiCupid offers a mobile app for iOS and Android users. The app is free-to-download and you can subscribe for the monthly packages with your Google Play or App Store account.

    We reviewed the app side-by-side with its desktop version and we can’t help but notice that the former is sleeker and modern in appearance.

    For starters, a playful and flirty shade of pink is the dominant colour in BiCupid’s app. It’s also less wordy as icons are used instead of text. The desktop features are all present in mobile, so at least either set of users don’t miss out on any functionality.

    What’s probably a plus for mobile users is the ease of navigating the app. Since mobile screens are smaller, you get to appreciate one tab at a time. This makes the experience rather pleasant as you don’t get bombarded with too much information at once. 

    Real Life Review

    “Growing up, I was rather effeminate and people immediately assumed I was gay. I internalised this, but for the longest time, I was confused. Because I thought I was gay, I can’t make any sense out of my sexual desires for women. I wondered, “What if I’m not even gay?” On a whim, I downloaded this app and it kind of changed my perspective. I got to know a strong and supportive network of bisexuals and gays. With their help, I explored my sexuality, revisited my assumptions, and learnt that the rainbow is a multitude of colours. Through BiCupid, I’ve gone on countless fun dates and even fell in love. Guess I got my money’s worth.”- Kevin, 26

    Design and Usability

    With members aged north of 25, BiCupid’s layout is friendly and simple enough to navigate even for those who are not tech-savvy. 

    BiCupid’s design is so simple we think it retained the same look it had years back. The website looks a bit outdated: it is similar in appearance to defunct social media platforms MySpace and Friendster. 

    But since the look is familiar, BiCupid's desktop not only induces nostalgia; browsing it is almost intuitive.

    White and light orange are the predominant colours of the dating site. Since the mobile app is a bubbly shade of pink, this rather strengthened our theory that the desktop version sports an older design. 

    Overall, the desktop version may look like a blast from the past, but it retained the purpose and functions that members signed up for.

    Signing up to BiCupid may be free, but the majority of the features it offers are accessible if you are a paying member.

    BiCupid offers four monthly subscription packages covering 1, 3, 6, and 12 months. The first three are payable via credit card or Paypal; the last package, however, requires you to pay in banknotes.

    While reviewing the dating site, we noticed it was easy to identify if members paid for a subscription or not. A badge bearing the words “Premium” will accompany your profile; the “Standard” badge will be displayed for free accounts.

    Like many other dating websites, BiCupid has an auto-renewal function to ensure you continuously enjoy your subscription. If you wish to cancel, the first step is to turn off this function. If you are paying via Google Play or the App Store, cancel the function from there. 

    Special Features

    Keep an eye out for these noteworthy BiCupid features:

    Spark

    The rather popular swipe-left-or-right feature is also present at BiCupid in the form of the “Spark” function. View one profile at a time and decide if it’s a yes or a pass. Good news: all members can access this feature.

    Bisexual Date Ideas

    A rather fun way to engage the community, the Bisexual Date Ideas let its members, standard or paying, to submit ideas for fun dates. Free accounts may also get motivated to keep on submitting; BiCupid gives a bonus subscription as a prize for active and helpful members.

    Bisexual Forums

    BiCupid cultivates a rather open and sharing community with its forums function. In it, members get to voice out their opinions or ideas, ask questions, and simply interact with others. 

    Reverse Matches

    Available for subscribed members only, the reverse match is a list of all the members who may not be compatible with you. The basis to find out if you don’t make a good match will be your information—your lifestyle, preferences, and plans.

    Why have access to this list then? Aside from the age-old opposites attract, our current perspective and wants aren’t set in stone. BiCupid encourages you to keep an open mind; interact with someone who’s not your “type” and maybe you’ll click.

    Editors Conclusion

    Datingscout.co.uk Editor Chris Pleines
    One of the first of its kind, BiCupid is considered one of the largest bisexual dating platforms worldwide. Not everything’s rosy, however, as BiCupid sports a rather outdated desktop layout and is plagued with reports targeting the genuineness of a profile and a paying member’s security. Still, with most members subscribed to a premium coupled with several features to keep the community active and involved, it looks like BiCupid is a solid way to meet like-minded personalities.
