You can't even search now.
Waste of time.. legit
by Ry Hainesss on 2020/09/24 02:26
Unless you plan on spending 30.00 a month, not worth filling out the 15 minutes of questions it asks you when starting out. You get like 5 likes a day. You can't even message anyone unless you match. I'll forget I have this app by tomorrow
by AnxiousGirlGamer150879 on 2020/09/24 01:57
OkCupid used to be my favorite dating site because of its long form profiles and search feature. That was worth paying for. Now they force you to use the same swipe mechanic as all the other dating apps, except OKC’s version of the swipe often doesn’t even abide by the preferences I specify. Not worth using OKC until they bring back search.
Ridiculously Glitchy!!

They need to lower their cost for Alist, or have a cheaper weekly option.
Notifications have been broken for too long
by Sokmunkee105 on 2020/09/23 21:42
This is one of my favorite dating apps and honestly, the annoyance of more features being behind a paywall is something I expect with most dating apps so it isn’t a huge deal for me. I’ve used this app on multiple mobile devices and phones, but every single one has problems with notifications. It gives me so much anxiety to have notifs with no way to get them to go away. I want them there to see when I get messages, but they don’t go away even after I go through all the messages and all the tabs, including the intro messages. I’ve deleted and re-downloaded the app and they’re still there. Please fix this, it’s been an issue for so long and i have friends that are having the same issue with the app. I don’t want to turn notifs off because then I’ll just never open the app, but having them there for no reason is such an anxiety fuel, with how many people that I’ve seen use OkC that also have anxiety, I know this fix would improve the app a ton for so many users.
In the Business of Data Mining
by Drats312 on 2020/09/23 21:28
Horrible dating app that doesn’t try to match you with anyone compatible, they are only interested in mining your data and selling your information. The compatibility percentage is rigged. I had people that shared 100% of the same interests, yet the compatibility percentage was 50%. They do not want you to find someone and delete their app. There is no way to contact support to get information. I was trying to approach this app looking for something serious, but then they removed my profile for no reason at all. I was not able to contact anyone to ask why. I once paid to paid to have a man worship profile, but it was the most disappointing thing ever. When I would finally start talking to someone and we were having a good conversation, they unmatched us as things were going great. Horrible, dishonest people.
Keeps getting worse
by 57Chicky on 2020/09/23 09:14
This used to be a decent app. Answered nearly 1000 questions. Now you can't see why your a match with anyone because you have to pay to see their answers. What a waste of time it was to go through that effort. Now is just as bad as every other app. So many things have changed in this app in the past year is become worthless.
Spend your time and hard hard cash somewhere else
by Ragnobash on 2020/09/23 05:57
Within one hour I had 12 likes. Each one of looked like a model. I look like Danny devito on a bad hair day obviously fake . Plus the lack of ability to do just about anything unless you poney up Some Cash? Find something else. The death toll is coming for this app
Please fix this
by Lucania T on 2020/09/23 05:30
New update locked me out of my account. Signed me out. Can’t get back in. But I still get notifications that people liked me back. This is the best general app I’ve used as a queer genderfluid genderqueer trans person and I don’t like that it’s not working.
Many glitches
by SW000 on 2020/09/22 23:50
Mixes up your gender or the gender you are looking for. Also signed up for a list for a while and ended up cancelling because you couldn’t see anything in the likes and intro tabs, but in double take it would show up. Ended up cancelling the subscription because the rates went up and functionality went down. Quite disappointed.
by greencovespringd on 2020/09/22 23:26
I believe YOU PEOPLE are in total control of who we can see UNTIL WE GIVE YOU MONEY!!!! Can’t even send this review ....
Deleted immediately
by mcflyerton on 2020/09/22 21:49
Back then, okc was great. Felt like a real dating site except it was free. You could search for keywords, or other criteria that matched your preferences, then sort them by match percentage, etc. I left for a couple of years and came back, and it’s been a complete shock. Why did they change everything? I get that you’re all owned by now but really? Why do we need so many other iterations of Tinder? Also, why would I stay on here if I’m limited to a number of likes per day? What garbage
by louisenbairn on 2020/09/22 18:12
I couldnt even sign up because if I literally typed in anything for a password it was saying"passwords not secure"
The app is broken
by restingbittchface on 2020/09/22 17:22
Can you guys PLEASE fix the app omgggg
by Marsh-Alexander on 2020/09/22 14:18
I guess I’m pretty dumb for paying for this app. Whatever filters you can unlock with the paid version are not “hard filters”, which means that it doesn’t matter if you have these filters on or not, they’re gonna show you whatever. Okcupid is the bottom of the barrel when it comes to Dating apps 😕
by anamachara2014 on 2020/09/22 08:46
I Believe that all life matters not just black matters because you have that on your logo and is kind of discriminating for other people as well. It should all people matters. That’s why I choose three stars
This app is so unnecessarily complicated
by ahdhdhsj on 2020/09/22 07:25
There are no limits to the amount people can write about themselves, which is quite overwhelming and even if you like someone you just can’t get through their entire bio in an acceptable amount of time and it’s just a turn off. There’s no option to pause for a while so you can explore a few matches. Your preferences are completely irrelevant to the app, it doesn’t matter what age you put, what political orientation, you will get likes from all kinds of people. IT IS A COLLOSAL WASTE OF TIME. And the thing is, witch a few changes, you could specifically and easily find the kind of people you would like, but as it is right now, it’s just a barrage of hundreds of people you would not be interested in AND HAVE TOLD THE APP SO WITH YOUR PREFERENCES. Don’t waste your time on this.
Can’t Even Make An Account
by Old Mintie on 2020/09/22 06:00
Seriously. I couldn’t create a password the app would accept. I tried multiple, all different combinations of letters, numbers and symbols. Not a single one was deemed secure enough to let me go any further. No guidance on what would constitute a secure password according to them, either on the app itself or with several internet searches. This extremely poor decision had basically killed any confidence I had that these people know what they’re doing.
Just downloaded
by Hudsonpride2010 on 2020/09/22 04:02
I just downloaded the app and I am attempting to sign up and I can’t even make a password. If the only criteria is it being 6 characters minimum and I make mine longer with letters, numbers and symbols and it keeps getting rejected saying it isn’t secured. I’ve tried four different passwords and keep getting the same result.
I can’t even get in...
by JediMasterBain on 2020/09/22 03:21
I downloaded the app and when I was signing up I put my email in and then made a password, but after trying dozens of different password ideas including just random nonsense, it always said password is not secure. Idk what it wants from me. I was really excited to use this app but I guess not. Thanks for nothing OKC....
by Kekebb223 on 2020/09/22 02:15
It literally won’t let me make a password to create my account
Lost it’s value
by Glizzy F. Baby on 2020/09/22 01:08
This app was great. Then it started getting monetized through perks. Now you’re limited on what you can do daily similar to most other apps under the match umbrella. Honestly just not worth the time or effort anymore.
Sign up
by nasmin23 on 2020/09/22 01:03
I tried to sign up but I won’t let me when I tried to create a 6 character password. It says that password isn’t secured.
Each change makes it worse
by Rfdgsa on 2020/09/22 00:56
There is no ability now to search through profiles. Instead, ok Cupid will show profiles based on “preferences”. Except they don’t! I’m being shown all men that do NOT meet my ethnicity preference. Additionally, you have to pay to see who has liked you and you can no longer see who has visited your profile. Add to that, many accounts are dead and you can NOT see the last time a person has logged on! Not worth the money at all! Dating apps are in business to keep you hooked, decreasing the chance that you’ll meet anyone worthwhile. No thanks!!
Password not secure enough?
by $:() on 2020/09/22 00:48
I wish I could give this app an honest rating but I can’t even use it! When I go to create a password, it says that my “password isn’t secure” but it doesn’t tell me what it needs to make it secure. For example if it requires numbers, letters, symbols etc. I tried every single one of my go-to passwords and even combined what I thought were my two most secure ones and nothing worked! I was so aggravated that I even just started typing randomly on the keyboard and even that didn’t work!
Don’t get this app 🙄
by notcoolnicole on 2020/09/21 21:41
Bruh I made the cutest account and in the double take section it’s showing people outside of my preferences. I set my age range from 19-24 and it’s showing me nothing but 26-29 year olds. Haven’t seen one person that meets my preferences. The app set up is awful as well. Big waste of my time, it’s probably just better to deal with the weirdos on tinder smh
Can’t even make a password.
by MustacheSamurai on 2020/09/21 19:31
This was going to be my fifth dating app because none of the others were really working. I thought I’d give this one a try because it couldn’t be worse than the others. Boy howdy was I wrong. I can’t even make a password. Using long convoluted patterns that literally every other site accepts doesn’t work. The only requirement the app tells you is “6 characters minimum” so then after using my usual passwords I just make the most complex and impossible to remember password I can think of just to see if it’d work and I still get told “this password is not secure”. I really hope this app stores government secrets or something important seeing as how it seems like I need to write a novel to have a “Secure” password. I’m going to try again and if something works I’ll change my review but until then I’m not impressed.
by HotWheels101 on 2020/09/21 18:12
Good App
I love the question matching component of the app, but the app crashes every time it loads an ad
by mollie lucille on 2020/09/21 17:28
The service itself is pretty good when used from desktop. However every time it loads an ad the app needs to be force closed. It won’t ever time out and tapping the screen only takes me to the advertisers website. The service is good but this review is of the app which is practically unusable with how often ads are forced on the user and how broken the ad service is.
Used to be great...
by sarahsloane on 2020/09/21 15:53
...but now the ability to use the app to find new folks is severely limited, even with the basic paid membership. Seeing a limited number of profiles per day, and being shown people that aren’t in the demographics I was looking for, didn’t make it appealing for me to continue my paid membership.
by Red Noir on 2020/09/21 15:40
Yea, the new site/app is garbage. All these changes you made... turn them back. Every site doesn't have to copy tinder. That’s what made OKCupid unique. Also, it was nice having usernames and not our real names showing. It’s ridiculous, copying tinder... but you’re not tinder you’re okcupid... that was the whole point. Duh. Deleting...
Cheesy but it works!

One complaint
by xXn1kk1Xx on 2020/09/21 10:32
I really wish that the recommendations under the discovery tab matched the parameters of what I have listed as my “ideal partner”. If my age range is 23-28, I don’t want to see 30+ year olds.
by sana_momo on 2020/09/21 04:22
Y’al really charged me premium and yet I can’t use any of the feature 🤦🏻‍♀️ give me my money back already
Would be better if it gave you more right swipes
by Bam1112 on 2020/09/21 03:50
It’s a solid app but it would be even better than tinder if it gave you more than 10 free right swipes. It should be at least 50
Not always true

by PFAguitarguy on 2020/09/20 23:07
I have a few deal breakers and okcupid doesn’t allow for me to search anyone. You can’t search for people. All the people they recommend are no where close to what I’m looking for. Match percentage results only give you like 5 a day, even if you pay. The discover tab is useless. The app feels crappy like they jammed a mobile web version into an iOS app. Everything is just bad compared to what the app used to be a few years ago. Not worth downloading much less paying. Ya 90% of my likes are in Asia so I’m pretty sure it’s just bait to try to get you to pay to see who liked you. When you do, boom none of them are people you can date since they are all outside the us. Feals spammy.

Decent app but...
by insaineyesay on 2020/09/20 18:16
SMS verification is not working at all for me. I’ve tried various phone numbers, creating a new account and messaging support all to no avail. This is only an issue with this app. Please create a big ticket for this. *Update* sent an email to support asking for a bit of cache clearing for my phone number and next thing you know it worked! No I can go back to searching for my poly princess! Lol. Thanks Ok Cupid. Updated to 5 stars. I would say the “open full profile” flow is a bit unnecessary. The UX for that could be improved a bit. The pics seem cut off at the top and bottom u less that button is tapped. Maybe an “accordion” type of flow would be more effective. Tap the button and the info unfolds to reveal the remainder of the profile. Pics are most important. Great env however for alternative lifestyle dating. Thanks!
In general good, but Distance & age failed
by אלעד1985 on 2020/09/20 18:13
The app in general very good, but missed a lot regarding the distances and ages I filled.
You can’t download premium if you had an account before
by Danieseany on 2020/09/20 16:25
It’s really annoying that I had an account from five years ago and it’s still linking to my iTunes and now I can’t buy premium but I’m trying to upgrade so I have to delete the account that I just made create a whole new email just to buy premium 🙄
Bonehead business decision...
by hellbent4leather on 2020/09/20 11:42
I'm not going to beat around the bush with this review. For the past couple of years, OkCupid has been the dating service that I've used most. I've even subscribed to their "A-List" service. This site has been slowly going downhill for a while now, but this decision to remove the ability to see who has visited your profile and which profiles you have visited is unfathomably stupid. Here's why. A visitors section shows an initial interest from other people and can influence an interaction. The people in this list could be great matches, but might've normally been otherwise unseen due to someone's set match preferences. In addition, some people might not feel confident about sending a first message and may be more comfortable waiting for the other person to initiate a conversation. It's already well known that seeing who has liked your profile is a feature hidden behind the pay wall of the site's premium A-List service. Thus, this questionable decision ultimately ends up feeling like a sad attempt to try and force users into buying the A-List package. Honestly, I've always thought it would be a better idea if they allowed non-premium users to unlock a profile or two a day from their "liked me" list while giving A-List users access to everyone on that list immediately. This would force non-premium users to focus more on the users that they can see. But I digress, I have not seen one positive response about removing the visitors section and it's pretty apparent that most users are upset by it. To the developers, listen to your subscribers and remedy this mistake before you end up losing a significant portion of us. Update: 12/6/17 The new “interests” feature is disappointing. Previously we were promised a keyword search in a future update allowing us to search profiles for certain words or phrases. However, this is not that. Essentially all this is is a streamlined interest search functionality the same as the one hidden behind the search preference menus. Update: 12/21/17 From two stars down to one... Yet more changes continue to destroy what was once a solid dating site. Almost every time I log in lately something else has been altered in some way or another. The new messaging system is a joke. Usernames are now being removed and replaced by first names. First and foremost this opens up the potential for serious invasions of privacy and thus is a safety risk. Secondly, usernames can help pique the interests of others if it hints at a certain pasttime, band, hobby, etc. Hell it might even just be clever or funny. It influences an interaction which Okcupid as of late seems to want to discourage with these ridiculous changes. Update: 1/8/19 Ads Okcupid? Really? Don’t be that guy. Furthering the trend of stupid business decisions, Okcupid has now decided to include obnoxious ads for non-subscribers. I am now forced to watch a stupid video ad inbetween sending messages. I understand businesses have to make money, but that’s ridiculous. Update 8/27/20 Been a while since I’ve updated this review, but once again OkCupid continues its downward spiral of bad changes since being acquired by Match. Removing the already limited search function and replacing it with Tinder-esque card stack swipe matching is the nail in the coffin for this app. What is the incentive for A-list anymore? Even with A-list activated, there are still paywalls to see the “most popular” people, no advanced filters, no way to increase your daily card stacks. This app has officially hit the bottom of the barrel. While this format has become the trend for most dating apps nowadays as Match as acquired most of them, there are definitely much better options out there. Update 9/20/20 The developers or maybe the parent company Match must be really trying to kill this app. As if the removal of a search function, and limiting the number of people you can see locally weren’t bad enough already, Okcupid once again makes a greedy decision to remove a core feature and place it behind a paywall. This time limiting the number of likes you can send a day without paying for their USELESS “A-list” service. Essentially forcing people to spend money to use their app for an extended period of time.

The crappy algorithm is complexly screwing with how I want the preferences to be set at. And what’s recommended to me is ether younger then I’m trying to find or way older. This app is going down hill. Find another.
Too expensive!!!
by CMahrez8 on 2020/09/19 14:46

it’s not the same.
by SweetChinMuzic on 2020/09/19 07:07
decided to use okc again after leaving it for a year or so. back then, it was great. now? not so much. they’ve limited the amount of ppl you can see that are higher scored matches for you, limited the number of ppl you can view that are near by or online, and the most important thing is that they’ve limited the amount of likes you can give per day, so the app is relatively useless unless you pay for the “a-plus” subscription.
Keeps getting worse and worse
by Bdander on 2020/09/19 04:43
At one time, maybe five years ago this app was actually useful. But they keep taking away more and more functionality. Instead of adding new features, they remove them. Who does that? At one time search actually worked. Then it would keep breaking, making it more and more difficult to find people. People that I know existed (because I saved the url) would just disappear from search. So instead of trying to fix search, they decided why bother, and dispensed with it altogether. Now they feed you possible matches and you have to decide between removing them or adding them to your likes. But if someone later decides to add more information to their profile, making it more interesting, it doesn’t matter. Once you have removed them, they disappear forever, never to be found again. I have no time for this joke of an app. Good bye.
I’m paying for what???
by alibaba561 on 2020/09/18 22:16
I paid for 6 months and the interface ls working the same as if I didn’t pay. When I paid last time I could see likes. Not this time and no one replied to answer why. I’m definitely not paying again.
Won’t allow me to make an account
by Adsie R. Gall on 2020/09/18 04:47
I’m trying to make an account but it only lets me use my email and when I do it asks me to create a password but non of my passwords work. I’ve used uppercase, lowercase, numbers AND ! All in one password and it still says it’s not secure. Then when I try to start over it says my email is already in use even though I have yet to actually create the account yet! Dudes, fix this!

Seems more driven by money... if you don’t pay then why bother,,, if the person your interested in didn’t pay, why bother, there is no way to know active people from 3 yr old dead accounts.. why bother... the app is clumsy and has no sort of ‘back’’s really awful and your money would be better spent on McDonald’s. Is there a zero star rating? DEVELOPER: I’m so sorry to hear about your experience, for 50$ blah blah blah...
Old application
by Iriska_r on 2020/09/18 01:07
Old application with a lot of defects. It shows people so far from your location you probably never meet with them. I bought a subscription and it doesn't worth it at all. Your settings never show you the right people from your area. Better choose Bumble

Not worth it
by BrianThePrimate on 2020/09/16 21:17
Within minutes of opening an account on OkCupid, I started receiving a lot of “likes” which you can’t see without purchasing a premium plan. So I purchased one and nearly all of the “likes” were from places like Kenya, Kuala Lumpur, and Guatemala.

Constant network errors, ads, search options don’t work
by LilaSwolf on 2020/09/16 16:16
Can’t even log in because of phone/code security system - 2-factor authentication doesn’t work and keeps me logged out. Every time you send a message, ads pop up. And I put in my criteria (ie. SINGLE PEOPLE ONLY) and yet married people still show up in my results...???? That’s the most basic of search features, how can an app fail at that? Get your shut together, OKC.
Don’t do it
by Klsteubs on 2020/09/16 12:47
In all honesty, I was instantly sorry I purchased a subscription. There is not much that separates this site from the free ones. If you are looking for a educated professional this is not the place to find them. I thought a paid site might offer that distinction, but it doesn’t. Just more unqualified matches here.
by CubbyOU812 on 2020/09/16 11:23
Same girls over and over no matter which way you swipe. Only shows 6 or 7 local matches per day. Pay for service and then hooks you in to pay more for “upgrades”. Total garbage.

I took it off my phone as I thought I met a nice guy. So I tired to put it back on and it won’t let me get past the phone number verification.
It’s money hungry
by Baldr_ragnarok on 2020/09/16 11:02
This dating app change! Now you only get about 10 swipes a day. One of the reason I like this app better then tinder it was because it wasn't focus on paying membership but now it’s all about that. There’s no benefit on getting a membership unless you want unlimited swipes.
Can’t delete profile.
by Kenneth Akiyama on 2020/09/16 10:46
Your password is required to delete your account and the reset password does not work. I assume this is a deliberate “glitch” in order to make it difficult to delete your profile. Privacy and the ability to delete a dating profile is pretty important.
Don’t bother!
by ~catsilver on 2020/09/16 03:45
This app isn’t for people who forget their passwords! If you do, you do not recoeve the reset email until hours later THEN it doesn’t even take you to the right page!
Don’t understand the algorithm
by fatedLights on 2020/09/16 03:31
Did 10 swipes and reached my ‘limit’ for the day, not easy to match with profiles that actually like you. Edit: I was able to do exactly 26 swipes while having to wait over 50 hours cumulatively just to have have my swipe limit reset 3 times, used to be pretty solid app, now just a money grab that barely even shows profiles within your own state.
Swiping to advance photos can create accidental likes and dislikes.. noooo!!!

Too Pricey!!
by Sandyy Rosee on 2020/09/16 02:10
I haven’t had the app long, but so far it seems like a decent app. The users are friendly and genuine, and you can truly make your profile your own & can express yourself easily. But, my issue is with the pricing. I’m sorry, but I would never pay $50 just for ONE month for any dating app - letteralone $150 for 6 months!!! And that doesn’t include the premium packages, which range from $60-$180. You guys seriously need to lower your prices. It’s a bit ridiculous, don’t you think? I can’t use this app much, just for the simple fact that I can’t afford it. And honestly, not many people can.
Worst site ever.

A...better Tinder
by Firestorm2154 on 2020/09/15 21:11
First, iPad version shows “unanswered” for all match questions. Not helpful. Second, it’s basically now a glorified Tinder. Search is basically gone, and while they have profile sections with writing prompts to encourage more content, these don’t show up on the “double take” swipe culture feature which is front and center of the app experience. If I had a dime for every swipe culture profile that was all IG friendly photos and no text except that they have a hard time filling out the profile, I could probably afford the increasingly expensive A-list features. People, it’s not easy for any of us, but I promise you saying something about yourself in any significant way is much more attractive than saying nothing. All the best interactions I’ve had with this app were with those who took the content and substance sections of it seriously. Those interactions used to be well-facilitated. Now, OKCupid is basically a better Tinder. While that’s not nothing, it’s also a low bar to clear.
Terrible app
by Chrissy123G on 2020/09/15 19:35
I think OKC may just top the plentyoffish app as the worst dating app out there. There used to be hundreds of profiles to choose from. Countless potential matches. I’ve met a hand full of beautiful dates there that have turned into lifelong friends. But now? After coming back 2 years later? My “discovery” area has been empty for days. There are bugs in every corner. If you select one filter such as non smoking all of a sudden there are no new people to meet. It’s just an all around terrible app. Even the swipe culture of Tinder is better than this.
Pretty decent
by Rumsfeld28 on 2020/09/15 16:15
Has some glitches but overall seems like a decent app with quite a few people in my area.

Strange Days are Here
by tdhurley on 2020/09/14 23:02
Ok, dating online can be pretty strange, but it does expose you to a wider base but you really need to spend a few hours with any prospect to see if they’re compatible. Most probably aren’t but it’s the only game in town.
Ghost town
by kake215 on 2020/09/14 21:55
It’s like people on the app don’t exist. No likes and no matches Its not worth the outrageous price per month
by geieves on 2020/09/14 11:26
Don’t bother downloading this The app doesn’t work at all it tells me there’s no internet connection even tho I have full service as well as full WiFi Website has no way to contact anyone so I tried to join hoping someone could help me with the issue with the app it tells me they are unable to confirm my email address After all that a new problem has came up Now any time I try to create and account it tells me my email already has a account I sign in using the only password I would have used and it tells me my account has been banned whatever so I try to use a different email and get the exact same response I decided to then make up a fake email and put that it with the same password only to be again told my account has been banned I’d love to know how a made up email apparently already had a account and how that account is already banned This app is nothing but issues
I am hopeful

You have to delete the app if you try to answer any topic questions.
by HeatherMagic on 2020/09/13 22:16
I took the bait to answer questions about specific topics and there is no way to get back to the main app. It forces you to stay in the infinite loop of addressing your topics. I had to delete the entire app just to get back to the home screen. They need something called the back button.
Intros gone...
by okcupid needs tech support on 2020/09/13 20:20
I had 19 intros but when I went in to check them they all disappeared. Turns out I am not getting any of my intros. I sent an intro to someone then all of a sudden I see the intro they sent me first. A friend of mine on here is experiencing the same thing. How are we supposed to find our connection when we aren’t getting our messages. OkCupid needs some tech support on this.
Bots for dayyys
by Electricmudpuppy on 2020/09/13 15:02
This app loads you with dozens of fake likes and dummy bot profiles to makes a-list seem worth it then once you buy it shows you all the bots and fake accounts it used to fool you. Then if you say anything offensive they ban your number. Real good folk that work there totally NOT a fascist set of fatties who sit around pretending they’re matchmakers when they only limit people who they don’t view as good. This app is a dumpster fire full of fat nuclear waste
What happened to you, OKC?!!!!!!
by bsadancer on 2020/09/13 11:59
Um. You were great before. And now you’re trying to be Tinder. Incredibly disappointing. This used to be an app that really encouraged people to read profiles and get to know each other. Now it’s just mindless and shallow swipe swipe swipe. And you can’t search with filters the way you used to be able to! Those filters helped me find a four year relationship once and being single again, I was hoping for the same experience. This app is horrible now.

I have found MANY people who buy into this and find out its only fake accounts you are interacting with. Let customer service know and all they could say was “Sorry nothing we can do” The day after emailing my issues my account is BANNED. So apparently contacting customer services is a ban able offense. HORRIBLE COMPANY HORRIBLE PEOPLE. BBB NEEDS TO SHUT THEM DOWN ASAP!
Don’t pay for Ok Cupid
by Lee in Indy on 2020/09/12 15:44
The “matching” algorithm is very good. The first week it was awesome and I was very impressed with the quality and number of matches in my area. The second week, and third have had nearly ZERO MATCHES or anything. It appears they have very few clients so the few I get are over 150 miles away. I have been thinking of filing to get my money back since they are not fulfilling their side of the contract. Lee in Indianapolis

Haven’t even had one convo
by Idot123 on 2020/09/12 00:30
I bought A list thinking it would be nice to see my likes and not see ads. I shouldn’t have done that. First off, this app does not send you notifications. I have missed opportunities to talk to people because I didn’t get a notification and days later I saw their text. I have checked my settings and the apps settings and everything is turned on. This makes it almost impossible to use without constantly checking. Also, A list promises no ads but I get ads to buy more boosts every time I open the app. They also expect you to pay extra fees after paying the high monthly price of A list. These fees are, .99¢ for read receipts, .99¢ to see new people, .99¢ to see popular people, and $8.99 per boost.
Overwhelming but Granularity of Data is Helpful
by Principle user on 2020/09/11 21:57
There were times when I received 3,000+ likes and there is no efficient way to sort through matches. There is no filter mechanism to select matches based on deal-breakers, such as religion, education or type of relationship the match is looking for (long-term vs hookup). The OKC app expects you to click on every single one of the 3,000+ matches. It’s too time consuming and inefficient. Additionally, you might not be physically attracted to a match and it would be better if the app allowed you to quickly deleted the profile without having to click inside the profile. When you have over 3,000 matches to review, saving time is important. I do like the specificity of the questions. When you are getting to know someone, it can be awkward to ask so many detailed questions without making it sound like an interview. The questions allowed for me to get to know if I had similar values as my matches and I do appreciate that.

Trash app
by f*ck_this on 2020/09/11 11:42
This app used to be good. I’ve used it multiple times over the years, but now with this new update it’s not worth my/your time. You get about 15-20 swipes in and it won’t let you swipe anymore and they try to sell you A-list. Which is outrageously priced. Wouldn’t recommend this app anymore, unfortunately
Worst Dating Site

It used to be decent but then they tried to be too much like Tinder and ruined it. Lots of glitches too. I’d avoid it.
Sapiosexual dating pros and cons
by Mithrandir Miles on 2018/12/26 14:38
One thing I dislike greatly, is the lack of any sort of verification. I've already had a number of catfishers trying to waste my time, in just a month using the app. Even Kik groups are able to verify people without people having to give up their anonymity, by asking for a live pic to be sent, doing something random that the owner/moderator asked for. Also, on the web version, if you are typing an initial message to someone, if you hit return, it immediately sends the message, and you have no way of going back and editing/continuing your message, which means you might lose out on a very good match, because of a nonsensical first message. Many questions are lacking a good choice, I.e there is a "yes, love it", "no, hate it", but nothing in between, so the % match numbers don't really reflect how compatible people really are (something that can often be seen when reading the detailed explanations) On the positive side, I love the wide range of questions, the ability to add detailed explanations, and all the different categories to handle non-binary gender ids, and being able to find people looking for non-monogamous or polyamorous relationships.
Used to be great
by mytw0b1ts on 2020/02/18 19:58
OKC used to be one of the top apps for meeting people and I know people who met on OKC and are still together today. Then over time they started implementing changes that make the app useless. Now you can’t see likes or even sent messages (where you’ve sent a message but they have yet to respond). So what this basically means is that if you’re swiping and you see someone you like, if you don’t send them a message right then and there you’ll likely lose that person. It used to be you could “like” them and go back and view their profile and message them later, but now that’s changed because in OKC’s mind you should only see that person again, at that point, if the like it mutual. Every other which way of communicating with people that’s not a mutual connection is paywalled. Pay to see non-mutual intros. Pay to see non-mutual likes. The main problem with dating apps nowadays is they’ve lost their purpose. Everything is monetized and that overrides basic functionalities. You can also tell that users (at least in my area) are dropping this app because you see a lot of the same people and there’s no way to limit (if there is not intuitively) the double take results to just the country you’re in so they make it seem like there’s a lot more of a “pool” by showing people from all over the world. Also, a lot of people only show up in your swipes but not when you search even though they fall under the search criteria.
Terrible dating app
by cgcg222 on 2019/11/07 22:53
I was on OKC a couple of years ago and it was great. Had lots of very compatible matches and some super fun dates. My experience this time is completely different. I’ll start by saying I’m above-average attractive (some might say very attractive...not trying to making a point. ), have good pics (the same type as before but updated), am fit with lots of interests, etc. The thing I liked about OKC initially is that there are tons of interesting questions for people to answer in their profile that aren’t just about personality. Get a good glimpse into what people are in to in general and how they feel about lots of topics but also their sense of humor and what they like sexually. I’ve been on the site a week or so and right now have over 1500 people who “like” me in some hidden chamber that I have to pay to see. When I go through the “chosen for you” feed 90% are people not even remotely a match for me who haven’t aren’t from this “like you” group. On the rare occasion that I find someone I decide to “like” they have not “liked” me first. This wasn’t the case before. Why didn’t I end up in their feeds? Leads me to believe OKC is just trying to force people to pay to see who likes them. I don’t mind paying for something of value but from what I’ve seen so far I can’t imagine there would be any reason to do that. There are constant pop up ads so they are already making money from my time on the site. Sadly I’m dumping OKC.
Could be better
by AsherBlumenthal on 2020/08/06 01:48
The app needs a lot of work. Oddly enough the desktop version is a million times better but for some reason they gave the app the least functionality. It should be the other way around. The app should be better than the desktop version but it’s not. As others have mentioned the filters don’t seem to work. Also the pricing is too cut-throat, read receipts for example should be included with A-List instead of being a separate purchase. And $10 to purchase incognito mode is kind of ridiculous, also seems like that should have been bundled with A-List. The developers treated this too much like a game with in-app purchases, A-List creators should go back to the drawing board and try to create an app that does their brand justice. The way it stands the app is nothing more than a wannabe Tinder. Also I am leaning towards using the desktop version exclusively and giving up on the app entirely. Oh and, the last thing I forgot to mention, the incentive they claimed for people to join Alist is that their would be no advertisements yet the app is plastered with their advertising of the New People and the Popular categories which are both separate purchases. I’m not interested in either of those yet no way to bypass those just seems a bit selfish on their part and adds to the reduced functionality because now I have 2 categories that aren’t relevant to me.
Have nothing critical against this app
by &kandhaj on 2019/02/27 03:17
I’ve been using different online dating apps for long time and tried allll of them literally all of them and I really don’t get it how Okc isn’t 5stars already, So it’s completely FREE there are options to purchase a boost to have your account appear more or to see who Liked you (like any other typical app) BUT in okc I had the option to send massage ANY account I would be swiping -i understand this might be a big issue for girls because they would be swamped with massages- but these massages don’t go to your inbox it actually appear by the account name when your going through the swipes and if that account didn’t swipe back I can’t go back and be this annoying person sending massages all day long talking to himself, you won’t have these people anymore ‼️The Thing that need to be fixed immediately is whenever i wanted to un-match sombody goes to same list as blocked accounts and I don’t have an option to clear a conversation or delete it Last advice: need more advertisement maybe because it’s getting dead and so much inactive profiles (which you can set-up to see recently online but need to be fixed a little bit)
It worked!
by Candycorn333 on 2018/08/18 00:08
I was talking to my boyfriend of 8 months about our relationship. He was commenting on how unusual it is to find someone that is so compatible on so many levels. After remembering back to some of our previous relationships we were noticing that compatibility in only one or two areas was common, but just wasn’t enough to sustain the relationship. My boyfriend and I are two very different people—with similar world views, tastes, and ideas about what we want regarding sex and dating. We are even from two different countries and yet we somehow met each other while both living in this small suburb close to Houston. We most likely would have never crossed paths if it wasn’t for OKCupid and we certainly wouldn’t have know our compatibility rate was over 90% had I walked by him around town! I believe that we are a great pair, but I could have sadly missed out on knowing this if we hadn’t met online. We are both inherently heteroflexible and polyamorous, so we decided to stay and continue to meeting people on OkCupid; this time with our profiles linked to each other! I love this vast and varied dating platform and am glad it helped me to meet someone I am so very happy with!
This app is awful
by Jmcsofly on 2018/09/28 13:32
I can't really blame the app for this first comment but gosh don't get on a dating app if you aren't looking to date. There is LITERALLY Tinder for that. Go there. Secondly I hate that when I paid to see the likes I got MAYBE 15 a day then magically right when I cancel my membership. I mean LITERALLY canceled it the went to the app to double check then suddenly I have "207+ likes on your profile. Join to see who." Really? In 30 seconds 207+ people liked me? This app is a lying joke and false advertising. The membership does nothing for you. If you did meet someone on here you're lucky.~~~~unfortunately the explanation didn't help because I didn't even get to see all 207+ of these people, I thought the whole point of A-list was to see everyone who likes my profile not some people. Sometimes I found people in discover that liked me not in new likes. The new likes section serves no purpose if every new like isn't in it and the section keeps track a record of all likes that I've actually seen. There definitely wasn't even 100+ in it. It was supposed to be some kind of bonus over a normal account but I didn't feel like it was worth it. Heck even when tinder says 207+ you see all 207+. I've counted before to make sure I was getting my moneys worth. 200+ meant 200+ on tinder. I think I'm going to take my chances back to that app.
by Everett on 2017/12/16 03:26
This was once the best dating site around, but since it was bought by the giant Match conglomerate, they’ve gradually stripped away all the useful features. Their most recent change was removing the ability to see visitors, a change NO ONE wanted and that has been universally unpopular and agreed upon that it has finally completely ruined the site. They’ve been in a vicious circle of losing (active) users and removing features that drive more users away. What was once a great and fun site is now a featureless ghost town. Shame. RIP OkCupid. Edit: OkCupid responds… with the same nonsense they’re selling to everyone else. It seems OkCupid has a preternatural aversion to admitting they’re wrong. They keep citing their “research” (that they won’t actually make public other than self-referencing the supposed results) but ignore the FACT that well over 90 percent of the hundreds of responses to their blog announcement of removing visitors were clearly vehemently opposed to it. Same with the reviews here. Even if they did have “research” which showed this was a good idea (which I’m dubious of – this is a site that has admired to manipulating users before as a big social experiment, they’re certainly not above lying) the fact is that research was wrong. NO ONE likes this change and they just won’t listen or even acknowledge the overwhelming majority of users who hate their recent changes. They’ll stubborn themselves to their own demise.
by Heads over Fails on 2017/12/22 23:51
I've been on OkCupid since 2004 and throughout that time I have made a lot of great connections been on many dates made some friends and generally have a good experience. I'm appreciative of that but it's not fair to continue pretending that this site is the same thing that it once was. Gradual changes over time we are well and good but as of late changes to the layout such as removing visitors, and recently, using your real name have made a real impact on my experience. OK Cupid used to be a fun place with some degree of anonymity and the ability to engage with people. But in an attempt to monetize and homogenize itself like many other dating sites it is lost some degree of what made it special and unique. This might be a find business model and they might think that it's fine to address criticisms on their app reviews with some kind of bored and Pat generic platitudes about how it's optimizing it's dating experience but it boils down to the fact that like the GOP this site is not for the people but with the advertisers that they wish to curry favor with. I really do hope that they can make a U-turn on some of these changes but as it is I'm going to change from an A-list user it was paying $20 a month to regular user because at this point most of the perks or gone and so is the love.
Weird rules and preys on lonely men.
by Vcrbetamax on 2018/11/25 09:52
I’ve used this product for almost 10 years and have not gotten one relationship. It’s changed a lot for the worse. It makes it harder to match and the algorithm deprioritizes you if you don’t buy premium. I’ve gotten 6 people to reply to me in the 10 years of using this. One became a good friend, hence the 2 star rating. The rest lose interest after 1 or 2 reply’s. At one point they changed the rules because women were complaining about getting too many messages. This means that instead of an inbox. You have to use the “double take” section. Which is like Tinder’s swipe left/right feature. This seems like it makes sense because then you are forced to scroll through new “matches”. However this means that your message to her will be buried under and hidden behind other people. I also frequently get emails saying that I was “matched”, “liked”, or “messaged”. However when I look through double take, there is no one that has the blue “sent message” notification. Also no matter how much I swipe right. No one matches with “liking” me. This app will break your spirit and kill your soul. It must work for women since the rating is so high but I just don’t have a chance. I’ve bought the premium service on and off for years as well. My money wasted. I don’t recommend this app.
Found my soulmate! 5 Stars!
by BanjoZman on 2020/04/24 18:48
I must say, this app beats any other dating app by a longshot. For a couple years I had used tinder and bumble and had few good results with them. If one is looking to just hook-up, sure, use those, but for a long term relationship that you want to develop, defintly download this app! The match % questions and the way the bio is layed out makes finding quality matches much easier than other apps! I am a guy and one day used okcupid after coming back from a business trip (the okcupid refreshes the people near your when changing locations), I matched with a beautiful girl who I have been dating for over a year now! Her bio said she could beat me in super smash brothers so I messaged her, got to hangout in person a week or so after, and wallah! Soulmate 😊. Before this I hadn’t ever had a true girlfriend, and thanks to OkCupid, we found eachother! And have had a blast since the day we met. No other app has the power to change ones life than OkCupid. Quality > Popularity. Anyways, 5/5 stars and good luck to those using the app, and make sure to use pictures and write bios that are clear, show your interests and true to yourself. IThankyou OkCupid makers!
Fascist IAC monopoly
by Rebel4liberty on 2020/04/04 23:03
Update : it’s nice to see we have fascist technocrats deciding WHO is allowed to use their consolidated dating monopoly platforms. I honestly think their goal is total social control and to ban any person from connecting and meeting people they’re looking for. The Great Depression coming will be your EQUALIZER IAC (150 brands isn’t a monopoly roll eyes ?) Now I’ve read a lot of reviews, and have tried to embrace these new changes, but they are seriously flawed. The Dev can say whatever they want, but the simple fact can’t be denied. About an hour ago I got an email from someone that liked me and sent me msg. So to the Double take I go, and it doesn’t take a few mins, or 10 and 20 mins, it takes about an hr to get to. You’re team is delusional if you think your user base has an hr to find a msg from someone to find out it’s a horrible match to begin with. If you’re going to insist and impose this system, MOVE these matches to the front once they send a msg so you can see and decide than waste time finding it. It’s bad enough that users just send a msg fishing for a response now, but unpractical to spend time finding it. Serious blunders that need more dialing in. I can only hope it doesn’t fall on deaf ears. I can only say if this team is just going to waste peoples time , Then OKC needs to go defunct to learn a lesson in inefficiency of a matching and msg system that’s becoming unpopular to use!
Used To Be Good, Now Just Superficial
by >JD on 2018/01/14 14:18
OkCupid used to be unique from Tinder and Bumble in that it wasn't based solely on looks to determine initial matches. People had the ability to message one another and form a match based on common interests. Now they won't even let your message go through to someone until they've liked you in their Tinder rip-off, swipe-to-like section. And the only other way to see people who have messaged you is through a premium membership. So a girl I'm interested in either has to be superficial enough to judge me based on a photo or has to pay for a premium membership to read my message. Why don't you just create an "Other Messages" section with messages from people the person hasn't liked back yet so they can at least have the option of reading all the messages they receive instead of having to find the people that messaged them somewhere else in the app? You guys have successfully managed to put messages in every section, but messages. Well done. They'll say their match percentage has gone up, but that's because the number of potential matches has gone down, not because they've actually succeeded in filtering out junk messages. This is now just a more confusing and convoluted version on Bumble. They've opted to remove the only thing that made them unique. Don't bother downloading. Just pick another dating app.
by Not Han on 2020/02/16 09:39
Okay I’ve used okcupid for about 2 years, and then last year my account was suspended which I found kind of weird and thought maybe it was a bug, but my account really was suspended for no reason! For two years it was fine and then all of a sudden last year my account got suspended. And so I said “screw it” and made a new account, this account got suspended too because apparently they IP ban instead of banning an individual account. So now I have permanent inaccessibility to this app. How is this app even still running? They let fake profiles on loose yet I’ve been a member for two years and I get suspended, what the hell okcupid? And it’s not just my account getting suspended, I read some threads on reddit and people were getting suspended for no reason (because okcupid doesn’t let you know what you did wrong) and it’s just so convenient for them to not have a customer phone line or an email to address issues and misunderstandings. I honestly have no clue how they are even having a business when they just permanently IP ban people for no reason. It just seems like they are just getting your info, selling it to whatever partnership they have, and banning accounts. Permanently banning a customer is a stupid business ethic, and not telling why the account was banned is not a good moral ethic. Go fix this app or sell it to another company that can do better
Used to be a good site
by Reviewer 1009 on 2019/02/01 22:27
I agree with a lot of the other reviews that I’ve read. This site used to be a decent site for dating. People used to really write in their profiles, tell about themselves, and fill in details about themselves to. These days it’s some kind of weird, stripped down version of what it used to be. The men on the site don’t seem to put much information about themselves anymore, like they take a minute and fill out a profile and spend all their time answering questions perhaps. One photo and a bunch of questions answered does not really help want to make a decision if you were interested in the person or not. They Designers removed a lot of great profile information like what the person’s income is, how tall they are, ethnicity, etc. There’s really not much information that you can glean from these new stripped down profiles. Like OK the guys male and single, thanks that’s a lot of information. That’s about all you get these days. And then the app itself is just ugh. There used to be great features, like you could see visitors to your profile. I don’t know what they did a while ago to the site but it just isn’t remotely what it used to be which was a decent site. I wish they would go back to what they were before all these new changes. It’s like they’ve gone the way of tinder or something to with the swipe right swipe swipe thing.

I downloaded this app because I was told about the multiple filters available that in the first couple of hours of using it left me flabbergasted. You can choose an array of options to describe the ideal person the same way when you mark some options to describe yourself it makes the process of choosing or rejecting very brief for both ways if you have your criteria very well set up. The problem is that often you get contacted by people that has nothing to with your preferences, but you may be part of theirs. My question is if queer people can choose not to be seen by straights (yes there’s a box that they can check for that), why not have the same for every other option like have or not children, diet, smoke, drink, drugs... Nothing most annoying than having a filter but being bombarded with messages from smokers, drinkers, meat eaters, parents, monogamic people that aren’t part of your criteria. In less than 24 hours I realized that this app filters aren’t what I expected. I even thoughts that maybe by paying the subscription it would improve but I didn’t take the risk because I believe the algorithm for that is not even built yet. I’ll keep looking for an app where you only see and be seen by people with the exact same criteria. Maybe it will reduce the chances to meet more people, but not everyone is in the competition mode.
Best Dating App on the Market!
by roboticactions on 2019/04/17 00:29
I hardly ever leave reviews and good ones at that. OKCupid provides the a wonderful algorithm to finding someone perfect for you. Of course, it can have small bugs here and there, but no app is perfect. Yes, there are the micro-transactions available to see who likes you back or to be viewed first. But they aren’t that necessary which is great! The compatibility percentage is what gets it for me. You can answer tons of questions, I think 500+ at least and be shown people who answered the same as you did. Keep in mind, the more questions you answer, the more accurate the compatibility. And I love being given the option to choose any distance, any age, any kind of specification without having to pay! I met my boyfriend on here who lives across the country, but we plan on meeting by the end of the year. I’ve fallen in love with him & our compatibility went from 96 to 98% just because I answered more questions that he had answered. (And you can even see what they answered and how they answered it without having to answer yourself.) Thank you, OKCupid. I found my happiness. (: Tinder, Bumble, etc can’t compare.
Bring back seeing who visited your profile
by SMN3060 on 2017/10/14 02:33
UPDATE: I don’t know how on earth the reviews have gone from 1.5 stars to 4.3 when the app continues to be less and less useful. The only way to talk to somebody is if you like them. And then you get locked out of likes for using too many. This app is turning more and more like it’s competitors instead of embracing the differences that make it better. I was always more likely to message somebody who visited me because I could see that they had interest outside of simply swiping right. Yes, the developers are getting more likes and messages, but that does not necessarily translate into responses, conversation, and dates. Developers, listen to feedback and make changes instead of attempting to placate and explain your horrible decisions and changes. At one time OKC had features that set it apart from other dating apps. Now it has moved to the age of swiping. I enjoyed seeing who was looking at my profile, as it helped me wade through countless other profiles. Now it is full of inane graphics that look like kindergarten drawings and no helpful ways to make a connection. Back up a few versions and maybe your reviews will be better. Update: I did not pay for A-List and did not care about browsing invisibly. I liked being able to see who was looking at my profile and letting people see I was looking at theirs.
Please fix the app
by Irritated with Mingle on 2019/12/26 20:12
I think there should be option where you can write an anonymous message about someone on the app. I’ve met 2 people on the app over the past few yrs the 1st one was a gold digger, and drug addict, and the 2nd one had just recently got out of a relationship everything was going good as we didn’t meet yet in person we moved from the chat room on OkCupid to Facebook messenger then onto the phone the 3rd day it came out of no where and she told me she wasn’t ready so I think it would be nice if you could write anonymous reviews about someone so that way people know who they should avoid. When I met the 2nd person I completely deactivated and deleted the app well due the issue that happened with the 2 person I reinstalled and created a new account. I have everything setup like I did before but the app isn’t working correctly as it brings me profiles from out of my search perimeters and I’m looking for a specific ethnic group and it’s bringing up a mix of ethnicity groups. So yea something isn’t right so how do I go about fixing it to where the app is set to my search perimeters and ethnicity group that I am looking for. Thank you.
Went from one of the best to another tinder/bumble clone
by blakedonaldmurphy on 2020/02/20 23:18
I used to have really great conversations on this site and had a lot of fun with the prompts and questions but nowadays? i’d give a zero star rating if i could. it’s like they cribbed and continue to crib from every other dating app/website without any real plan for what they’re actually trying to accomplish. what used to basically be a social media profile for dating has turned into some kind of committee-assembled frankenstein’s monster. between increasingly impenetrable barriers to messaging other users and a system where you can only match with a dozen people a day unless you pay a ridiculous fee, it’s no wonder you’ll see the same people over and over again, with no new faces, no matter how many times you remake your profile. oh and if you pass on a match or block them, the site will eventually undo this action in order to force a match, so the app developers can keep touting their success. after blocking a past abuser, they now turn back up (not a new profile, but the exact same one) over and over again. did no developer at any point consider what a bad idea that might be? the whole experience feels like using a moribund website. if the current trends continue, i give OKC another two years of existence, max, before the company folds and calls it quits.
almost useless without paying
by Cody7806 on 2019/08/02 00:59
The app used to be amazing but ever since it was bot by match, it changed little by little till it was made totally useless unless you pay. The only way you can message a person, or the only way they can see your message, is if you both like each other‘s profile in the swiping section. The problem is that algorithm randomizes the profile to the point that you could swipe right on every single profile that shows up for the entire day and it seems like you still wouldn’t match with anybody who likes you even if you have a bunch of likes. Example I have 30 likes, I literally swiped right until I was notified that there were no more matches and I would have to wait for the website to generate more. I did not match anyone despite having so many people who’ve liked my profile. Bring back message viewing, i’ve seen quite a few girls on here that I feel like I would deeply resonate with but I can’t message them because of the stupid tinder system you’ve set up. Update: after the most recent update they SIGNIFICANTLY, decreased your number of daily likes. At this point you’ve got maybe 20 daily likes, then it tells you to upgrade for more. These pieces of sh** are doing everything in their power to force you to buy a list or suffer a virtually useless app. Don’t download
They Killed It :/
by MyNicknameIsJ_ on 2019/02/02 22:53
OKC was awesome when I used it two years ago. Since then, they updated the messaging system and now you can’t see messages unless you both like each other or you go to the other party’s profile. Ergo, you have no way of knowing if the other party will ever see what you wrote or know your message exists. Adding to this, anyone who does bother to write does not put effort into it now. They said they did this to streamline the messages, particularly for people with high incoming volume and to curb harassment. Let me tell you, as a woman who was getting a ton of messages under the old system, I never felt harassed and I responded to anyone who gave a thoughtful intro. That intro helped me decide who to talk to. I no longer have that because nobody cares anymore. Worse yet, the change turned OKC into a ghost town. I’m on another app and get a new message every 3-5 mins, and on another where I get a like every few minutes. On OKC, my profile is collecting cobwebs. It wasn’t like this before. I could use the % match to find people like me and easily interact. Now... crickets. The match was the one thing that set you guys apart and made your app more effective than others- now I’m back to using the others and sorting out who’s similar on my own just because I actually meet people on them. You guys ruined a good thing. Seriously.
I’m being generous.
by Un petite Matisse on 2018/05/08 06:20
This app is ok it’s still hard to meet friends and people too talk too. I appreciate greatly the gender choices and distinction. I would like more options For matching my high matches haven´t worked out. I even am even trying a subscription. Not sure I’ll even get a good date. I sometimes wish I would not see the same people over and over. People I already let the app know I’m not or less than interested in . It seems like there could be much better improvements. Lots of wasted time. There are so many people who already have relationships. I’m all about being open to polyamory but would prefer too see more people maybe even sometimes only people not attached to anyone that’s not an option. I use to like the app more when I just used the website. The app seems lots of flaws. Also I find matching with other gender non conforming and different sexual orientations difficult at best there seems too be no effort too matching other than interests like generic geek and nerd culture and alcohol preference or weed which seems arbitrary. It’s just not working for me.
by SquarePantsSpongeBob on 2018/03/08 23:53
Everyone’s heard the definition of insanity when used in context for repetition, right?... Well OkCupid is definitely trying to make me go insane, because swiping left apparently means I made a mistake and I need to see that person again to swipe left to confirm I’m not interested. Although, OkCupid wants to double check my confirmation and will make me swipe left a third time on the same person because clearly they think they no more about what I like and they feel like I made a mistake. But wait there’s more! This app believes at some point in the day I won’t notice that they’ve thrown the same person back into the swiping queue so I might end up swiping right on that person to open up a chat proving them right that I’m clueless about attraction. OkCupid, you’re either trolling or twisted, but either way this app update is unacceptable. Your ads are aggressive when they appear, and your swiping algorithm is seriously flawed. Aside from the sarcasm, the changes you’ve made have jeopardized the quality of the app and before anyone says anything, I sent a message to customer support letting them know about the swiping issue since I feel like that’s the only thing they might actually care about, but there’s been no improvements in any of the updates since. Good luck trying not to go insane 🤡
Newer *no visitors* version is terrible
by Sandras13 on 2017/09/10 02:06
I think the app developers underestimate the usefulness of the visitor feature. In real life, I could smile or look over at a man that I am interested. On here, "visiting" a guy's profile was a way of doing that. "Like" and "Mutual Like" don't seem to have the same effect. The visitor feature was part of the subtle chase that's part of flirting and dating. I know I'm no 20-something year old girl, but I was used to getting messages quite often, by men who were genuinely interested in dating me. Now, it's a rare occasion if I get a message. I have even gone as far as to follow the suggestions that OKC recommends, like being the one to message first, etc, and have noticed no difference when I do or don't. This change has been a massive miscalculation, IMHO, and I will likely disable my account. And hope for the best with another app. UPDATE: App developer's response to trying liking more: I have done. Many more than previously. It's clearly not the same, and by the looks of other recent reviews, it appears I'm not alone on this one. Even Mutual Likes or matches, when we both know we liked each other has not led to any improvements in matches that lead to messages. Fewer messages = fewer IRL connections. Keep telling yourselves that Visitors didn't work, despite the feedback you're getting.
Not enough women
by Alex1luv on 2020/09/09 20:15
OKC needs to do more to bring women in and you cannot say it’s because of my area because I live around NJ and NYC where there are plenty of women but not on the site. Clubs bring women in by offering discounts or free service but these sites don’t do anything. I don’t care what made up fake ratio you come up with 100 men per female is insanity. You know women are getting matched with tons of men and men are getting zero matches yet do nothing about it. I’m not an ugly person and consider myself at least average looking and should be getting several matches a day (or week) from average looking women. I should not have to write an amazing profile either just to get a few matches. Most women score between an %80 to %95 in terms of what we have in common And if I am not matching with them then what is the point of answering questions. I paid for 3 months and I wish I could take my money back. OKCUPID is pointless and after my subscription ends I will never use it again. If I cannot find anyone during a quarantine then I will never find someone on this crappy app. For any men thinking of using this get ready for no matches per day, empty mail box and getting what’s left of your self esteem obliterated. It will feel like you are getting rejected X a million. Do yourself a favor and look for women in public instead.
Garbage App, Garbage Company
by CC-2224 on 2020/03/09 21:04
Up until a few days ago I was an OKC user. Didn’t go on very many dates...not a Brad Pitt, so that doesn’t help...but that’s not their fault. What is their fault, is the asinine way the app is setup, making it difficult to find and communicate with potential dates. Worse yet, is the TOTAL lack of support. Off and on I’ve signed up for their “A-List” features, paying extra for the privilege of being able to communicate with others, and being “boosted” (not that I ever noticed much difference.) You’d think that would mean they’d be responsive to issues, like I had a week ago when suddenly I couldn’t log in, either on the app or desktop site. Sent multiple emails to support, and...crickets. From doing some digging and reading reviews, it looks like my experience is pretty typical. Nice to see that’s what they think of paying customers. As a small business owner of a company where customer service is key, if my people blew off emails, they’d be in the unemployment line so fast their heads would spin, but it seems like OKC doesn’t care. So I cancelled my A-list, and am saying sayonara to OKC. If that’s how they treat long-standing, paying users, they’ll not see another penny from me. I’d suggest the same to others...try other dating apps or services before wasting time with Okcupid.
Great potential, but falls short in some areas
by TheFamousPainting on 2019/08/14 05:18
Love the compatibility features/quizzes they have and I’d say they definitely help when looking for a match. I have had a few “high quality” matches, but chose not to pursue them due to other “compatibility complications” (distance, finding out we were very different in critical ways, or finding out the other person was a little crazy). The app is great for matching you with people you could be really compatible with. The only problem I have is that there’s not enough people in the 18-23 age group using the app in Texas; especially in San Antonio. I’d say I’ve only seen about a few hundred maybe(?) and not even that. I subscribed to the membership and was disappointed that my recommendations were constantly empty as there was no one around me within a reasonable radius, and that they popped up in other cities (with still, not a high number of people). I’m now casually waiting for my membership to run out and hopping on to see if maybe I’ll get lucky and more people will join okCupid. After it expires, I’ll probably move to Match or eHarmony, as Tinder has more people, but from a quantity vs. quality dating perspective. OkCupid is a hidden gem, but it’s difficult for a gem to shine when it’s hidden.
The best one I’ve used
by Gabriel B's mom on 2019/02/18 16:52
OK, no dating site is perfect. I have tried 9 different ones and not one has been perfect. But OKCupid is the closest to perfect of the 9 I’ve tried. 50% of the dates I’ve been on originated with someone I met on OKCupid. The other 50% have originated with a mix of the other 8 sites. I really like the algorithm OKC uses to match you with people - relatively simple questions you answer about your preferences, values, opinions, experiences, etc. There are over 2,000 questions you can answer, and they’re always adding more. The more questions you answer, the better your matches. This is also an easy way to see how compatible you are with someone. And you can see how they answered specific questions. The only thing I don’t like about OKC is when someone sends you a first message, you have to “like” them before you can respond to their message. Well, I don’t know if I like them yet - I just want to exchange a couple messages and see if I do like them. I wish they would change that. Otherwise, I think it’s a great site and the app is easy to use.
Thanks ok Cupid 🤧🤧 y’all are my bros
by alittlemuslimgirl on 2018/09/16 21:40
I met my boyfriend on okCupid and let me tell you SIS...I’m the happiest I’ve ever been I’ve always felt like something was missing from my life and I would turn to apps for online friends to fill my void but I gave up hope because I could NEVER find someone so I deleted the app but one day I got bored and re-downloaded scroll the app and saw a message from this guy and I just felt something like a SPARK 💥 so a couple days later I went to the movies with him and from that day forward we’ve been together it has been two AMAZING months and I owe it to you guys the internet is great I never would’ve had the courage to meet anyone in person we have something very special and I’m very happy and appreciative and thank i god everyday that I found him, but I never would’ve found him without you guys!! Moral of the story is be patient and love will find a way because I would’ve NEVER GUESSED ID BE IN LOVE LIKE THIS also be careful meeting strangers online it is super dangerous but I’m still alive so I guess it’s not too bad 🤠🤠🤠but that’s all folks
Still a good site but has definitely changed for the worse
by travelmad478 on 2018/05/29 00:15
I have been using OKC for a number of years and have met many fine people through it. I’ve paid for A-list for several six-month stints and liked the features it used to have. Unfortunately, the last few rounds of “upgrades” have made the whole thing a worse experience. My biggest gripe is that in order to respond to a message from someone, you have to “like” them first. Well, I am a person who is selective in “likes,” but who also wants to be polite and at least respond to those who write to me, if only to tell them “thanks, but I don’t see us as a match.” Now, to respond to those people, I am forced to be either (a) a liar if I do “like” them, or (b) a jerk who just ignores them. This does not improve civility or truthfulness, two qualities which are in short supply in online dating to begin with. That said, I do like the matching algorithm (it definitely seems to work) and the many opportunities to ask questions to understand others’ world view. Some of those questions can be pretty ridiculous or intrusive, but some of them are really helpful in understanding people.
Outrageously expensive. Free version is useless.
by Yolozuna on 2020/06/11 18:10
This app takes ages to set up as it prides itself on the most detailed dating profiles out there. The downside to this, however, is that you get about 10-20 likes a day and can’t message anyone you didn’t match with. This is especially awful when you realize that you will get the same 5 profiles repeatedly and each time you swipe right on the same profile you just swiped right, it counts against your already laughable amount of free likes. This is a terrible pay walk structure that means that the only people I will be able tot son to are others that have been successfully extorted for $40+ per month. Yes, it’s cheaper if you pay for multiple months, but for a product that’s designed for your success to mean deleting it, I don’t want to believe it might take me 3-6 months to find success. If this was my app, I’d make the premium featured bonuses, rather than the core experience. When you’re signing up and spending half a day building your profile you don’t even realize you’re about to spend less than one minute swiping and after days of activity still won’t have anyone that it’s possible to message. I don’t much care for the ways that this app has downgraded itself over time.
Don’t even try here, men.
by noway886 on 2017/10/31 05:30
The age we live in now has made it super hard to meet people online if you decide to go that route. Even in person it’s kind of hard too, but that depends on where you live. If you live in the PNW don’t try going here at all. I’ve gone through insanity so many times here expecting a different result but nothing ever goes through. My profile is nice and pics are up too. I also think the ratio for men to women in the PNW ( mainly WA) is pretty bad. You’re just better off trying Portland, Or because that’s at least good. The women up here just don’t even give you a time and day on here. No messages or nothing and I partially know that’s because they get bombarded with messages but I honestly think some just go through those messages and read them and keep going on about their day. What I’m saying is that it’s mainly a competition and it’s not even worth it. You may as well go somewhere else where the ratio is better where you’d even have a chance. Or say to hell with it for a while and take a break and go and listen to some MGTOW. Tchau! 👎
It’s like you are a slab of meat on display that no one buys
by Kfjudndifnfjfff on 2020/03/04 17:31
Using this app, I put pictures of myself on their, answers questions honestly and was myself. I got 99+ likes in the first day, of course since I refuse to pay, I can’t see them or how many there actually are, if they are even real. But still, no one ever messaged me, yeah people liked my profile and viewed it but in the end, I felt like meat in a supermarket, being glanced at but never bought. It was kinda depressing. And then they limit how many likes/matches you can do a day and limits the number of messages you can send, unless you pay. But why would I pay to shop for strangers? I got this app because I never meet new people, thought maybe I could find a guy who wanted a cute girl who loves working on cars, since it’s pretty rare. Nothing. If you do get this app, I recommend putting an email address (don’t include the @) at the end of each message just in case the app decides you’ve been using it for free for too long and decides to make someone vanish. Yeah, they do that. They delete messages, hide users you’ve talked to too much. The good parts about the app is all the questions you can answer and supposedly gives you better matches. But the app used to be more fun with less limits.
Terrible. Deleting.
by jlchristy011 on 2020/07/27 17:09
- app continues showing me people I swiped no on, multiple times. - I continue to get notifications that I’ve received a message. Messages are near impossible to find. I used to go to ‘discovery’ and scroll around until someone’s picture flashed they had sent a message. But now when I go to ‘discovery’, there are 0 people listed. It’s all blank. And it is not due to my preference settings. I only have age and distance filled out. So the only people I can sift through are the ones I already said no to on ‘doubletake’. - another reviewer was correct about the caliber of users on this app. Think McDonalds eating, anime watching “adults”. I won’t say more than that. - I’m so tired of the ‘must mutually like someone in order to easily see messages’ deal. First off, I can’t very well ‘like’ people if all I can browse is ‘doubletake’. Second, I’m not huge on ‘liking’ people. A lot of the time I’m on the fence, but a convo can go a long way. So I’d have to go through and ‘like’ a ton of people just to see. Which the app restricts, unless you’re a paying customer. And on top of that, randomly liking people you’re actually on the fence about will mess up the data. Data.. the thing that dating apps run on. TLDR- deleting okc and using another app.
by Rysodone on 2019/06/05 05:50
Outside of the constant glitching of the app, slow notifications (if I get any at all and) etc... So decided to pay for a monthly subscription (for the second nonconsecutive time) and of course I new that it would be continuous if I did not edit the subscriptions in my settings. Right after I paid for it a notification popped up and asked me to manage my subscription, so which I did. Then as I was using the app I noticed that the subscription wasn’t applied. I immediately called Apple to speak to iTunes and they told me that it’s an app error. So I can either get a refund with them or contact okcupid and ask for the issue to be rectified. I did that on the June 02, 2019, by email, OKC took 2 days to respond and instead of asking to verify the account, or go into my settings to update my email, they said my email didn’t match so I would need to email them from original email when signing up with the account. Now mind you I signed up through Facebook. So here I am 2 days later waiting for a refund or the subscription I paid for until July 02, 2019. I bet they won’t even bother to compensate me for the inconvenience. If the issue isn’t resolved I will be getting that refund from iTunes, and OKC will have lost a valued member.
So I finally found my soulmate...
by Chelly430 on 2019/12/31 18:12
What a long journey it’s been. I had been using OKC for 5 years, along the way I would use other dating apps but this one was my primary go to. I liked it because the quality of men was a little better than some of the other dudes on like POF or Tinder which are mainly there to hook up. Don’t get me wrong, I had to deal with my share of creeps as well but that’s not OKC’s fault. As for the app itself, since I had been using it for a very long time, I did notice a lot of changes throughout the years. Ads became a constant and pesky thing (which is understandable since they need to make their money somehow) and the app would glitch a lot but I believe they’ve updated it. I did enjoy the questions/answers feature. This really helped bring up good conversations on what could be an awkward silent moment. Overall I am grateful to this app! My fiancé and I are set to get married May 2021. It’s possible to find your person, just have patience, it took me 5 years on the app💕
Love and happiness
by Rob DJ Jamm Griffin on 2018/08/10 07:37
I don’t understand why so many on here are having such a hard time using the site or app. I have used OKCupid a few times and not once I have had any issues. The only thing I can think of is that there cellphone could be out of date and need to be updated. The same for the apps. If you don’t update it won’t work!!! Now to something more exciting. I have met a few woman on here one was a little crazy, another one is a good woman but didn’t want to understand my insight as far as she being there for her daughter during the pregnancy and putting things on hold till after the baby was born so I parted ways because of her selfishness, then I met my now wife Ami. She messaged me first on a Friday night, I didn’t see the message until Saturday then we chatted on Sunday met on a Monday and like she said in her review we got married 62 days later and I have to say she is definitely my soulmate and have never been more happier!!! Thank you so much for matching me with Ami!!!!
Has lost significant value
by Stephen Nuño-Perez on 2017/12/27 07:47
Perhaps OKC makes enough for money from selling data mining gathered from those who use their surveys, and that’s fine, but as a casual dating app it’s been essentially worthless after they removed the ability to see people who visit your profile. Maybe they didn’t like your profile because they aren’t sure yet. Maybe they would like to see if you visit their profile in response to their visit. Regardless, it’s a feature OKC claims users do not like, yet somehow their swipe feature, which is a prominently displayed, inundates you with profiles from people hundreds or thousands of miles away. Somehow the same people not interested in knowing who viewed their profile unless it was also liked, are interested in reading profiles from people they can never date because they are in Buffalo and you’re in Phoenix. It makes no sense wasting time swiping profiles from people in other states, but somehow okc thinks this is more worthy than seeing an actual human with potential who viewed your profile in your own town. Again, maybe the point is user data, and fine, but as a dating app, you can’t entice me to eventually pay when it’s usability makes no sense, despite their research.
Paywalls and Uncertainty

First off, there’s a massive paywall just to see who likes YOU. Second, there’s no way to go back and see who you’ve liked, so if you liked someone with sending them a message first, you’re S.O.L. And lastly, $40 for a SINGLE MONTH of “Basic” access is straight up highway robbery and if you’re not shoveling money by the buckets, you’re probably not going to get any attention or any messages back from people you’ve sent messages too. I understand that the developer need to make money to do upkeep on the app/site and it’s servers and whatnot, but the price is ridiculous. My suggestion: give new users 1 week of full access to all site/app functions to encourage subscriptions, but cut that price WAY down. Something more in the neighborhood of like $10/month for “Premium” access is far more realistic AND affordable. On to my next issue: Uncertainty Browsing through the profiles on here, you do find people who seem pretty genuine, but most of the time, their photos look more like stock photos you can find with simple Google image searches. It seems like almost every user on here is a photographer with a high end camera and decades of experience. Just seems to be a little too good, in my opinion.
A blundering travesty who seems to pay for 5 ⭐️ reviews

Absolutely horrid. I have used this for a few years and gradually seen more and more features be cut away, only to be locked behind the subscription fee if they weren't outright erased. My account was recently suspended without notice. I was greeted with a message saying my account had been suspended due to violating terms of service. How exactly I did that without ever posting anything obscene or even sending a single rude message is beyond me. I was told that I could contact the support team if I thought it was a mistake, which clearly it was. However, there is not a single link on their website or on the app allowing for contact with a support member. I combed through the support forum of pre answered questions only to find in bold text that they “do not tell users why there are banned”. How utterly laughable. That is like arresting somebody without telling them what crime they committed. The article then told me to read the community guidelines to see what I might have done wrong. Unfortunately this is not possible since the link they provide for you on their own forums brings you to a page where their community guidelines are not available in English! What an absolute joke.
No more visitors list???
by skvxpi7b2hrf on 2017/09/07 20:03
As a guy, I can't see any reason to log in anymore as the list of women who visited my profile was the main indicator I used in deciding who to message. UPDATE: I received a canned "developer response" that gave some nonsensical and convoluted reasoning that described removal of the visitors list as a new free feature. Note to developers: My review did not mention "A List" and invisible browsing was already a free feature which I did not choose to use. I relied on "visible" browsing and the visitors list to determine which profiles to visit and possibly message. With both of those previously free features gone, I no longer use the app/site since I long ago stopped browsing profiles and messaging random women because it proved to be a waste of my time. The only message responses and dates that I ever got were the result of the now-discontinued visitors list and "mutual likes." UPDATE 2: Received another developer response stating that their data shows that removing the visitors list is better and results in more messages. Anecdotally speaking, this has not been the case for me and my review/rating stands. I will add that I live in a smaller city that has very few attractive women using OKC, but that has always been an issue.
Seems like a scam...
by TheGrunk on 2018/03/10 20:10
I used OKCupid years ago and it was easy and fun. Using it now seems like a giant scam. I purchased the "A List" subscription when I reactivated my account and it seemed fine, but didn't seem to help so I let that subscription lapse. The day it ended all of a sudden I had 30+ "likes" I can only see if I pay for A List again. My "likes" are now over 80 and in what seems to be a near impossibility I never match with anyone who has "liked" me. I'm either getting liked by a bunch of real beasts or OKCupid is trying to scam me, you and everyone else who signs up to use their app. It's garbage, don't bother. EDITED REVIEW AFTER REPLY FROM OKCUPID.... OKCupid has told me that once my subscription lapses it reverts back to “total number of likes” and that these aren’t necessarily new likes. Based on that I wish I could give them an even lower number of stars. This app is complete garbage and unless you are good looking enough to get hit on just walking down the street this app probably won’t do anything for you. If you are good looking enough to get hit on just existing in this world you’re most likely using this app to rack up numbers. Flat out, OKCupid is garbage and you’re probably AC superficial moron if you’re using it.
Back after a while, and now I see why all my friends moved to other apps.

Spent a few weeks here on OKC after a recent break up. There had been lots of redesign done since I was last on, so it took some getting used to. I had lots of friends saying that they had left OKC for other apps due to issues. And then, I came to my own discovery - the handfuls of messages I had sent to people would most likely never be seen, since the receiver doesn’t see messages unless they also say ‘yes’ to your profile. Forget winning people over with personal words and talking about their profile, if they don’t like your picture, all that work and thought goes out the window. I’m switching to another service after what my friends warned me about: while every other dating app was busy adding new features, OKC took them away and made lots of free features paid access only. And while their questions and personality system seems the best of all the sites, netting them 2 stars instead of 1, the shrinking of features in the name of reshaping how dating works just doesn’t seem worth it. I’d consider paying if it wasn’t as much as a Netflix subscription.
New Message system is awful!
by Valserker on 2018/10/23 20:28
I am really bummed and somewhat depressed about this. I found someone on this app that I think was a really good match so I message them. This person more then likely has a free profile based on the Info they put out there which is fine. However OK CUPID decides to punish me! Someone who has paid for this app! Because when I message someone there is no way to do any follow up or determine if they might of read my message because due to their new algorithm they disappear from my messages and profile completely! I have to wait and hope that they log on to check the stupid double take and then they have to like me back in order for the message process to begin! When did online dating become this rediculous? What happened to just messaging someone normally without having to jump through weird design hoops that nobody wanted in the first place! I paid 35 dollars for this? I have a suggestion, how about listen to the people who are paying money to use this product and quit adding your own devoloper crap that nobody cares about! I am making sure nobody uses this app. If I can keep at least one person from using ok cupid then I will be happy. Thanks for nothing.
An ok app
by J.McNew on 2019/06/02 02:20
Not sure if the entire user base is going after the same 10 people or everyone doesn’t use the swipe feature. So many women have on their profiles they can’t see likes and to message them but for whatever reason very few respond to messages. In Oklahoma you see a lot of the same users on PoF and there people can email pretty freely. This is better than a lot of apps but as a free user PoF feels like a better option but it never hurts to use both. I wish messaging was more straight forward or at least make it so if women just delete get an auto reply they aren’t interested, as a guy you spend so much time writing messages because very few women are willing to message first but getting ignored with no reply at all just makes you never want to put effort that 90% of the women on here claim they want to see. I dream of the day that in order to view people you must be an active user meaning you must send and respond if you don’t then your profile is placed in low priority queue until you start sending or responding to messages.
Does not remove fake users
by 4kidmom on 2019/07/03 15:48
I’ve used this site on and off over the years, and appreciated it when the changes were made to mutual likes. My inbox used to be flooded with unwanted emails from men, and the mutual like system made messaging more manageable. HOWEVER- okc does nothing to remove fake users and this really upsets me. I diligently report profiles that have a fake photo (cartoon, model stock photo, or whatever) to keep the site safer and cut down on scammers. There are tons of male profiles with just one photo (red flag) and often it’s clearly a fake. These profiles are still on the site even after I reported them! Why does okc allow fake photos so men can drool over women’s profiles without providing a legitimate one themselves? My own profile was reported for having a picture of my DOG and the picture was removed. Mind you, there are six other excellent photos of me both full body and close up and my picture of my dog is removed, but the scammers with fake model photos are still allowed?! Sorry- that’s a bunch of hypocritical crap and makes me not want to use the site anymore. I’m just disgusted with that double standard.
I wish I could give zero stars

After finally trying to make the app work, I’ve lost all patience. I had to come to reviews and see if anyone else feels just as frustrated with the changes as I am. The entire message feature is absolute garbage. I can’t delete any messages, I still wish I had access to other messages despite being unmatched, previous messages before the change you don’t have access to anymore, etc. You used to have an incredible amount of freedoms and versatility with the app and now you’re strapped into a box. Everything is extremely limited making it terribly difficult to maneuver through the app. The website isn’t any better. They’ve completely stripped the website down to the bare minimum. And let’s not even get started on the profile visitors. The name change is literally the worst idea ever! It makes it uncomfortable for those who want to stay a little more discreet and have privacy in their life. (I’ve got just about one of the most uncommon names and a quick google search would be a stalkers dream). I can’t even go on. This is now the worst app ever. I can’t believe they’ve ruined a perfectly great app.

Of all the asinine changes they've made to this app recently in order to create another Tinder/Bumble hookup-finder clone with no distinct features, forcing users to go by their real names is the most ridiculous yet and will probably lead to me canceling A-List and deleting. As a woman using the site, I like to preserve at least some layer of anonymity until I'm confident I can trust the person I'm messaging. Exchanging first names was an indicator of trust, the first little intimacy before meeting in real life. For people with unique first names, this exposes your identity in a way that you generally wouldn't want with a mass of internet strangers on a website that also asks you to provide a lot of detailed information about your personal history, your sex life, and all sorts of things you would not necessarily volunteer to the world or on a first meeting with a random person. Because of how intimate the questions get, you have to have the option of anonymity. Requiring otherwise is irresponsible and makes me, as well as, I'm sure, a lot of other women, feel unsafe. I met a lot of great people through this app in the past but sadly OkCupid seems determined to chase all its sane users away.
