Easy to Use
BBWCupid.com is fairly easy to use. The registration process is straightforward and quick. The website itself is designed with the most transparency and ease of use possible, leaving out much that would overly complicate things. Given that the site acts within a specific niche, it does not need to draw in and support a large amount of users, nor does it have the audience to do so, given its rather limited niche. As such, the site itself makes everything simple so as to make matches themselves a precise and smooth process. This is driven home by the fact that the dating site offers every user a tutorial on where to start when first using the site’s services. Once a profile is made, the user can search through other profiles with very little limitation. Every other profile is at the user’s fingertips and all the information therein that is made public readily accessible to any user. One of the top features that enhances the ease of use in this regard revolves around the personality test as well as what the user is looking for in a match. A profile will be marked green if it is compatible based on the personality test the user took during registration. It will be red if it is deemed incompatible. Another special feature to make the process smoother is the fact that messages are automatically translated to the user’s language, though this is a premium option.
There are myriads of search options on BBWCupid, depending on the type of account the user has available on both desktops and on the mobile app. Every member is given a nearly unlimited amount of matches to go through based on their preferences. From these matches, a user can look at each profile, and from the personality test taken during registration, can see the compatibility of said profile. The system will generally steer the search to the most compatible profiles, but this does not mean the user is strictly only allowed to look at these. All profiles are open, even to free members. Free members can even send messages, and “interests” to other members, though messages can only be sent to premium members from free accounts. If the user wishes to follow through their search to another free account, they must pay for premium access.
One very useful search function is “I Match Their Criteria.” This is a checklist based on compatibility and will show just how compatible a match is. This function allows the user to see how their profile complements a match, narrowing down searches. The user can also narrow down searches through advanced search functions found in premium only. Through the highest premium package, Platinum, a user can narrow down a search to something so strict as hip size, waist measurement, BMI, and bust size.
