You can search for matches using the free search function or the LikeBook. If you choose the free search function, you can search for any user on the site who has safe mode deactivated. You can filter the search easily using the following tabs:
- New members
- Last online
- Match Level
Aside from these general filters, you can further specify your search results according to age, number of miles away from you, state, and even country.
Each search result shows you the user's picture, name, age and location. On the upper right portion of their photo, you can see small round icons - these are badges that tell you whether or not they're a premium user and if they used any perks to make their profile more visible.
Underneath each entry, you will see three icons: a heart, a smiley and a chat bubble. Press the heart if you want to like them, the smiley to send them a wink, and the chat bubble to message them. However, you cannot send your own messages as a free user. The only way free users can show their interest to other members is to send them a wink or a like. Alternatively, Cupid has a free chatroom that you can join and chat with other users.
