Fastcupid.com has just had a makeover, and we like it! As one of the fastest growing online dating sites today, FastCupid is all about meeting quality singles. With over a million members, it is geared towards singles looking for a dating arena with a great vibe. Thousands of new members are joining daily. Whether you’re looking for friendship, casual dating, or a serious relationship, Fast Cupid’s features and communication tools will help you find your match.
We found the site to be extremely easy and fun to use. The "cupid" on fastcupid is their unique matching system and one of the highlights of their dating service. To use the cupid feature, new members complete a 25-question multiple choice Personality Type Quiz which asks some important questions about one’s personality, lifestyle, dating needs and desires. A completed quiz generates one’s personality type with categories such as "The Dutiful Host", "The Traditionalist", and "The Innovator". Display your personality type on your profile, or hide it if you so choose. Then the matching system sends specific match suggestions directly to your inbox.
The site also features other perks such as video introduction, picture voting and rating, message boards and more. Three of their newest features really caught our eye. The first, "The Village", is a community message board/forum that allows members to share their thoughts about "last night", about "sex & dating", "entertainment", and more. The idea is to create a community area where members can share date experiences and discuss relationship questions.
"Graffiti", a second brand new section, is a whole new relationship advice section with pointers for your profile, your date-night, and more.
Finally, "JM2C", their third huge addition, is a photo sharing section where you can add your own caption to your photos. All of these are features you won’t find on most other dating sites for sure!
FastCupid’ site is clean, friendly and refreshingly free of spam! The site makes it easy to block any member and encourages members to report any suspicious activities. In addition, you have all the control when it comes to divulging personal information. Feel free to remain anonymous until you decide you are ready to meet someone. Of course, remember always take care and use common sense when meeting anyone new!
Basic signup is completely free at FastCupid! Put your credit card away and register within minutes. While you can get started right away, consider giving yourself a good few minutes to complete your profile with photos, and notes about your hobbies, passions and dreams. Add some information about the type of person you would like to meet to help weed out people who you know aren’t for you and narrow down your search. Choose a headline that describes you in a fun, casual or clever way. Try to sum yourself up and have fun with it at that same time.
The basic membership is free, offering access to the Personality Type Quizz, basic search, your full profile, flirts and hotlists. You can even post your thoughts in "The Village", take advantage of "Graffiti" or add your caption to a funny photo in JM2C. However, be aware that many other features, including e-mail and advanced search, are part of a paid subscription. There are various levels of paid memberships giving users many options to suit their needs.

Fast cupid is a dating website with aptitude. The cupid matching system works smart, not hard, to find you appropriate and compatible people to meet. This is a site that’s also geared towards active, intelligent and sophisticated singles which means you’ll be sorting through an attractive pool of members. It doesn’t get any easier than this. Whether you use their cupid matchmaker or search on your own, the site is intuitive and a breeze to use.
You can succeed on Fast Cupid without ever using the search feature. Because the matching is based on your personality questions, you can choose to rely on the site's suggested matches. Should you prefer to search according to your own parameters, feel free to start with the basics. With the basic search you can look for people in your area, and choose if you want people interested in dating, friendship or a serious relationship.
With a paid membership, users can search according to any criteria using the advanced search tool. You can find who is currently online or eliminate people without a photo on their profile. Limiting the distance from where you live is another way to narrow down your search. If you only want to meet single people, not anyone divorced or widowed, you can define this in your search criteria as well. With a free sign up and free basic features, why not get started today!?
