Amigos.com - Latin Dating Service
Amigos.com is a predominantly latin site with a lot of content for anyone who is looking for a new and refreshing take of the online dating scene. While it bills itself as “Love and Romance for Latinos Worldwide”, the site is open to people of all races, and a free registration is a simple two page affair. After providing your gender, what you’re looking for and with whom, a birthdate, and your location, you can pick a username and email. The second page of registration asks for your basic profile information like a short fill in section, as well as standard pull down menus for height, body type, race, marital status, religion and occupation. The intro section sets up a title for your greeting and has a fifty character minimum for your response.
The profile details of Amigos.com is where the depth of the site really shines through. The first part of the more detailed preferences is a fill in section about your ideal ‘friend’ or date to meet on the site. There’s also the option of setting an auto-reply to people interested in your profile. Next is a personality section which asks for more explicit information about your religious and political views, your educational background, views on various habits, as well as more fundamental questions about your interests, marital expectations, and thoughts on children. One thing that’s very nice about Amigos.com is the optional sections to fill in your screen names for various IM services, allowing you to easily maintain off-site contact with users.
The physical descriptor page runs through a full gamut of questions. It remembers your earlier information on height, and body type, and then asks you to fill in information about your hair color, length, eye color, whether you wear glasses or contacts, and there’s an option for more specific information about your cultural background, i.e. instead of just being ‘Caucasian’ you can fill in ‘Irish American’, etc.
There are other features for customizing your profile as well. You can upload photos (which require approval before posting) and manage them in separate galleries. You can edit the color of each part of your profile to give it a more personal touch, and you can also upload audio and video introductions to the site, which will be available to anyone looking at your profile.
Amigos.com also has a Geographic Update section which lets you set your current location, when and where you may be traveling, and even your hometown, to let you reconnect with lost friends.
Additional questions to fill in for the profile ask about your dating preferences, dreams and goals, personality traits, hobbies and interests, and more: there are also questions about your outlook on life, your work and living environments, what sports and outdoor activities you enjoy, as well as what you find most entertaining.
Searching Amigos.com is easy. There are three search levels based on what type of member you are out of three potential categories: Free, Silver, and Gold. Free users can search gender, what someone is seeking, age range, and where they’re located. Silver and Gold members both can access the languages, race, location range, and personality type filters, as well as being able to set how many matches to show per page and save searches. Gold members alone are able to search based on physical aspects, habits, desires for children, and filtering only users who have video or voice intros.
Last and certainly not least, Amigos.com features an intuitive ‘Cupid’ system that algorithmically searches and returns matches that you would like based on settings you give it. Your Cupid results are stored onsite and delivered to your inbox.
Overall Amigos.com is an easy to use and very deep site that offers more features to regular free members than most other hispanic related dating websites on the internet. No matter what race you’re looking for to spice up your life, Amigos.com has you covered.
