Summary of Hong Kong Cupid
Summing up, we have a mixed, rather neutral opinion about Hong Kong Cupid. It’s a popular dating platform where you could meet Asians. However, it has tons of scam reports and fraudulent people who steal data and blackmail new users. If behaving carefully, the service will lead you to find real users, but being attentive is rule number one when using such services.
How Hong Kong Cupid work
After pressing the Join Hong Kong Cupid button, you’ll start the registration. You’ll see a popup like the one above, that’s the first step to get registered on this Chinese mail order brides service. You’ll have to select and fill the following information:
- Your First Name
- Your Gender and Who You’re Looking For
- Your Age
- Select Email and Password (Provide the Valid Address)
Press the View Singles Now button to continue. Alternatively, you can register via Facebook. The service is managed by Cupid Media, and they have third-party integration via this social network. When you choose this option, all the data needed to complete your profile will be added from your Facebook page.
The second step will take enough of your precious time, it lasts for a while. This step happens only if you choose registration without Facebook. In other reviews, they do not accent how much time it takes to complete the registration. Thanks to the second step, it indeed takes a lot. We were surprised and shocked by how much personal data the service wants to collect from you. This isn’t some kind of database initiated by the intelligence services about citizens, yet this dating service pretends to mask dating in Asia under personal data collection.
You have to provide the following details:
- Real-life name
- Your gender
- A country where you live
- City, town, or village
There are also tons of other details they ask you to provide, mostly regarding your appearance. That’s where you have to decide whether to provide them or not.
If you want to impress people who are using Hong Kong Cupid, then the first step to do that is to upload the right photo. The third step includes adding your profile photo either by uploading it manually or by connecting Facebook where it’s taken and delivered right into the system. There are also photo guidelines that will direct you in the choice of the primary photo. It’s located right below the photo uploading form and is easy to find.
The feature that will be extremely helpful right after registration is called Advanced Search. The search results of your dating interest will be displayed like on the screenshot above. It has various data to be typed to find people who match your taste as closely as possible. We liked how the search works on Hong Kong Cupid, you’ll benefit from it as well.
We found out that user diversity is extreme on Hong Kong Cupid. The service includes women who have Asian origins in the majority of cases. There are more than enough of those who actually come from Hong Kong. The age range starts from 18 and ends up at 60+. Every man should find a person to talk to here finding pleasurable time later on.
Tons of profiles that we reviewed indicate the general portrait of those people. Women often include at least two photos from their daily life not counting the avatar. To check out who is real and who is a bot, watch the photos carefully. Profiles with extremely beautiful photos, who often write you first almost definitely mean no good to you, so stay away from them and chat with people who have less extravagant pictures.
