Chat rooms for singles aren't as prevalent as they used to be.Now, people tend to use social media and online matchmaking websites where you can meet friends of friends as well as cute, single strangers.

The challenge could be running across the right person at the right time, as the chat room option tends to be quieter than one might expect on a site with so many users.

This site shouldn't be confused with the matchmaking site, Ok Cupid.

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.

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.

You can add a profile picture if you'd like to, but it's not required.

Some sites allow you to chat free with the option to upgrade for access to other features while others are completely free.

The more involved the registration process the slower the chat rooms seem to be, though speed could vary by location, day of the week and time of day.

Cupid doesn't just have chat rooms for singles looking for love and flirtation, the site also has tips for meeting the right people, chatting safely and relationship advice.

There are over 7,800,000 members registered at Cupid, so there's definitely a lot of potential to find someone you really enjoy.
