This was a unique system for sure, but to me it felt cheap and unnecessarily limiting.

They advertise as an upside the fact that you get your stamp back if your message isn’t read, but this is only if your stamp isn’t read in 30 days.

Things like “Add as a Favorite” and “Show Interest” are good first steps for inviting people to check out your profile, but your best bet is to upgrade to a premium membership, either Gold or Platinum.

To start, either join with your Facebook account or your email address.

How to Communicate with Other Members Aussie Cupid’s messaging features for Standard members are simple to use but not very effective for making connections with people.

It is user friendly and has really improved since I first entered the site way back in 2013. It has lots of members (2 million ), and the rate of response is surprisingly high for such a large site with so many members.

The stats only get more impressive: 40,000 conversations a day, 1 in 3 Australian couples that met online met on RSVP, and 1 out of every 5 Australians who used RSVP ended up married or with a life-partner.

Some may like this feature, but I personally prefer paying a flat rate to message as many people as I like.

I wish they would get rid of the whole stamp pricing thing. If you are like me who does the “cast the net wide” approach but loves being on a budget, you will see that your wallet will be drained quicker than you can imagine.

The fact that these features are available through the site itself is even better, as there is no hesitancy to give a stranger your phone number or Skype information.
