Editor's Review:

If you’re hoping to find a big, beautiful woman or you’re a BBW looking for a date, something fun or something more serious, this could be the site for you. BBW Cupid takes our No. 1 Choice Award in this category. The site is fun to use and it gets glowing recommendations from those who have tried it and loved it. BBW Cupid offers a holistic approach to BBW dating, lifestyle and personal aspirations.

This site is visually very appealing with easily-accessible subsections for different features: search, profile, blog posts, lists who's interested and membership activity, with more besides. This makes it easy to use the site and navigate to vital areas of your profile and settings when you need to. Meanwhile, the basic search allows you to find a partner by gender, age and exact location. You can also specify what you're interested in, from pen pal and friendship to romance/dating and marriage, so you can be as casual or serious as you choose to be.

In contrast, the advanced search allows you to be very specific about the sort of person you’re interested in, right down to their hair and eye colour. When you've run your search the results are easy to browse. The site is creative and neatly designed with a professional look and feel. Each result shows the membership status (Standard, Gold or Premium) of the member, so you'll know straight away how you can communicate with them.

BBW Cupid is free to join as a standard member and there are two higher subscription membership types available: Gold and Premium. In the past, there was little difference between these two options other than the fact that Premium offered video contact, which is a key benefit if you're seriously looking for "the one" and want to know what the person looks and sounds like in real time.

However, times have changed and the premium package now allows you to significantly improve your profile and to add notes to other people’s profiles. This is a clever way to keep track of who you’ve been talking to and what you thought of them, their likes and dislikes and so on.

The majority of profile pictures seem to be good quality, bright close-ups, as the moderators insist upon these factors. This makes the person seem much more open and you can more clearly see who you're attracted to and who really doesn't float your boat. Members appear to be listed by their first name, rather than usernames, which also makes the person seem more real and meaningful.

Any search results show you when the member last logged in, which is really handy if they've already found the love of their life and don't log in to the site any more. It also tells you what they're looking for if they're still active, so you know how suitable or unsuitable they might be. Importantly, it also shows you where they are based. All of this is listed in member box profile, so you won’t need to spend hours and hours looking through full profiles in detail.

In fact, if you're in a hurry you can make searches even more compact by showing only photos and a key for your response, e.g. clicking on the heart indicates you want to show interest or clicking on the tick adds the person to your favorites. If you've got more time then you can see more detailed searches with a little teaser of what the member has written about themselves and if you're really into them you can open their full profile in a handy tab format. As you're looking at member profiles, there are discreet and friendly safety reminders highlighting the dangers that can be presented online, especially when discussing personal information.

On your home page you can view a tally of how many new messages you have, as well as sent and received emails. You can also see who's expressed an interest in you. You can also search or look for members currently online or in the chat room, so it's easy to get straight to the key places where you might find that special someone. This is particularly useful because it means you can avoid making contact with users who aren’t likely to log on in the near future. You can easily manage your membership when you need to - perhaps you want to check the status of your subscription or change your password.

There's also easy access to your favorites, missed instant messages and a blocked list if there's someone you don't want to be in contact with any more. For all members there's a Most Popular section and for Premium members a video gallery. The most popular section tells you about users who have been receiving a lot of attention. Rather than simply being the admin’s list of most attractive members, it includes a range of people from all walks of life. 

The BBW Cupid blog is useful to all new site members, but also to anyone not quite sure about internet dating or in fact, dating in general. It helps not just to your current situation, which is trying to find a mate online, but also with self confidence. Topics include How to Dress According to Your Body Shape, How to Get Over Your Ex and How to Give Yourself a Makeover.

There are more categories in the blog, including Competitions, Current Events, People and Society, so the blog is of general interest too if you want to take your mind off dating for a short while. You can also send in your own question and subscribe to the feed to receive blog updates or have them emailed to you. If you decide to use the site and want to comment on anything  there's a very well-designed feedback box that takes a matter of seconds to complete and send off. 

The site has a very useful help section, which is well laid out and easy to use. It's comprehensive and covers everything you could possibly want to know about using the site and online dating. The help starts instantly when you join - your welcome email contains loads of help and hints on how to get started. The prices are also very competitive, with a variety of contract periods (from 1 to 12 months) available, offering substantial savings to the frugal  dater.

BBW Cupid doesn't necessarily have quite as many features as some other sites we've seen and it's less flirty, although it has improved on this in recent times. However, this makes it seem less blatant and less crass than some other sites. If you're looking for a professional, user-friendly, enjoyable site then BBW Cupid is the one for you. It's free to join, so why not give it a try!
