If you're chatting with someone you like and have to go but hope to continue the conversation at another time, you can become friends on the site.
You can add a profile picture if you'd like to, but it's not required.
It doesn't take long before you're encouraged to update your account.
While you can chat for free at Cupid.com, there are also subscriptions available to people who want to use additional features on the site. Registration is required to access the chat rooms for flirting.
Expect a lot of email from the site unless you change your settings or unsubscribe from the mailing list.
Mobile chat is also available if you want to use your cell phone or tablet. Chat Avenue is an old school chat option, complete with moderators who make sure everyone stays safe.
These chat rooms have a 1990s feel to them, in that they're fairly basic and easy to get into and offer a refreshingly simple design.
Though some of the chat rooms are labeled teen-friendly, these rooms seem to be best for ages 18 and up because some users may post erotic comments, and the rooms are only loosely moderated.
Reviews at Easy Counter have comments about the wonderful graphics and how it can be a nice place to chat.
When you sign up, you'll be asked for your email address, gender and the type of person you're looking for.
You'll also be asked to share a few details about yourself, like your favorite way to spend a weekend.
Some of the best reviews are associated with the site's free app (which does include in-app purchase options), Cupid Dating.
