If you’re looking for a senor or senorita from Mexico then one of the largest Mexican dating sites is MexicanCupid. Here’s an overview of the MexicanCupid dating site, and the kinds of people you can meet on this dating site.
First of all MexicanCupid has a wide variety of members, but a large number of the members (especially the female members) are either from Mexico or another Spanish speaking country.
The men registered with the site tend to either be from a wide range of countries, but the majority of them are either from the United States or from Mexico itself.
MexicanCupid is a bilingual site and is available in both English and Spanish (Español). If you’re Spanish speaking then you have a big advantage on the site as you will find it much easier to chat to the women on the site who don’t speak much English.
An important thing to remember with MexicanCupid and all the other Cupid Media owned niche dating sites is that:
- Not all of the dating site’s members live in Mexico.
- Not all of the members are Mexican.
- Not all of the site’s members will be looking for a marriage partner – some might just be looking for fun, Mexican friends, penpals and Spanish study partners.
When you set up your MexicanCupid profile it’s a good idea to specify what type of relationship you’re looking for.
Ole to Mexican wives
Although there are plenty of Mexican senors on the site, the biggest users of MexicanCupid tend to be American and Canadian men looking for Mexican brides.
Although American men frequently find foreign wives in Eastern Europe, Russia or Asia, the simple matter is that Mexico is just so much more convenient to visit. You don’t have to cross the Atlantic or Pacific Oceans. If you’re living in one of the Southern states you might not even need to fly. If you want your Mexican bride to come back to the USA or Canada then she’ll also find it much easier to adjust to North American culture. American culture is immensely popular South of the border. Although the majority of the population are Spanish speaking, English is the most popular second language. Being Spanish speaking also means that women from the Mexican would feel right at home in the USA, particularly in the Southern States with their Mexican influence.
Mexican women also love the idea of marrying an American man. Although there is an element of a mail order bride business, marrying an American is also a way out of the poverty and gang related violence that unfortunately affects modern Mexican towns and cities.
MexicanCupid Mexican Men
Many of the Cupid Media dating sites like Thai Love Links or Filipino Cupid are obviously aimed at men looking for mail order brides. But a great many of their dating sites can be used by both sexes to find partners. MexicanCupid is a great dating site to use if you are looking for a Mexican husband. Although there isn’t much of a mail order husband business compared to the mail order bride business, there are increasing numbers of middle class men and women in most countries throughout the world. More and more people from developing countries have internet access at home or at work, so they can use the online dating sites that are so popular in Western countries. Although MexicanCupid is still immensely popular with men looking for Central American brides, the site is also used by Mexicans to find their dream partners online.
Although there are thousands of dating sites out there, not many of them are much good. The free dating sites suffer from problems with scammers signing up in huge numbers. The smaller Latin American dating sites are often poorly managed, and they don’t have a wide enough selection of members to reach critical mass.
- MexicanCupid has tens of thousands of members, so you’ll have no problem finding people to chat to.
- MexicanCupid is completely free to sign up to. Once you’ve signed up you can browse the personal profiles at your leisure.
If you think a Mexican partner is for you then it’s worth paying for full membership of MexicanCupid. There are two levels of membership – gold and platinum. Platinum membership affords more contact options, and your profile is made much more visible on the site. Membership is paid for on a monthly basis, but there are generous discounts if you sign up for a few months at a time, or take out an annual subscription. Finding a wife in a different country takes a lot more time than you might think, so it’s a good idea to go for the annual payment option.
MexicanCupid has some great search facilities, and they are way ahead of many other dating sites in this respect. Once you have found someone you’re interested in, it’s very easy to compare your profile with theirs in order to see how good a potential match you are.
MexicanCupid Dating Scams
Scammers are common on most dating sites, so it pays to be vigilant at all times. Despite the best efforts of the site’s owners, beautiful women are a great lure for operating a money related scam. Avoiding dating site scammers is simply a question of following basic advice, like not sending money to women. However, despite the warnings, men still lose thousands of dollars in simple scams, so don’t let love cloud your judgement.
Dating site scammers tend to be younger and better looking than average. They don’t always use their own photos – a common trick of professional dating site scammers is to steal innocent photos of people from the Internet – sites like Facebook or Flickr are great sources of family photos! If you have any doubts then always make sure you chat to someone you’re interested in on webcam. If they turn down the offer of a webcam session then you should be suspicious. Internet cafes are all over the place in most countries, and an increasing number of people have computers at home.
Another thing to watch is for translation scams. Don’t get suckered into paying large amounts of money for a Spanish translator. If you’re looking at other Latin American dating sites then be especially wary of sites that charge you every time you send a girl an email – costs very quickly mount up.
Another thing to be wary of is dating girls who are much younger than you are. You’ll have a much easier relationship if you stick to contacting women who are closer to your own age (unless you own a boat and a sea front condo in Miami of course). If in doubt, then use this dating age difference suitability calculator to tell you if your relationship with a foreign lady has a sound footing.
As a Platinum member of a Cupid Media dating site, I can personally tell you that scammers are incredibly common on these sites, so take care. Both men and women are equally at risk!
Alternatives to MexicanCupid
Cupid Media run a wide range of niche dating sites, including many Asian dating sites. If you want a partner from Central or South America but aren’t exclusively interested in Mexican women, then LatinAmericanCupid is an alternative. This site has many members from all over Central and South America. The Dominican Republic is another alternative.
Latin Euro and Latin Kisses are other Latin American dating site. Again this site has members from a wide range of South American countries, but there are a large number of Brazilian women on the site. If you’re specifically interested in Brazilian women, the try Brazil Cupid.
So to summarise, MexicanCupid is a great website for finding your dream senorita from Mexico. Online dating can be risky at times, but MexicanCupid is about the best quality Mexican niche dating site there is, so sign up for free membership and give it a go.
