    After a divorce, you might consider taking a chance to date others that you may see as fit. With over 91 million connections made every year, it is very likely that you find a match based on your personalities.

    Whether you're into afro dating or prefer to date other races, your busy schedule and life can't allow you to meet someone you can date long term. If you're looking for a long-term commitment with someone just 50 miles from you or don't mind flying to meet a potential date over 1000 miles away, you won't go wrong with OkCupid.

    Before you go out on a blind date, why not practice your small talk with 2 or 3 others online? If it doesn't work out, at least you got your practice in. If it does, then you'll have plenty of options.

    The application is OK. You need to obviously purchase a membership in order to see people who like you , so if you can’t see who likes you hopefully they message you since is free. You can message, which is cool because the people who do pay most likely have a job. The Questions are random sometime makes me feel fit to the times with covid which is annoy for me because it’s already in each aspect of our lives. You think they think of us as adults who are responsible enough to pay for an over priced app, and get hit by Cupid arrow , we could all do are part by now. I also wish their was a way to regulate hight. Then ask for more money to see new people. All that should be in included for 6*.** sixth sometime for 3 mo only. You think they work around the clock to fine you a wife . I never 100% match , if that’s even possible. And “that Incognito is a separate subscription from Basic of Premium, and does not include any of those features” All that I feel should all be combined.. over all experience haven’t met anyone yet, OK. It’s be cool to add a chatroom or a way to communicate with more people at once for non-monogamy.

    It's far too expensive for the subscription service. I did it for a month because I was tired of running out of likes (seriously, okc? I have to pay TWENTY dollars a month for basic functionality????) and when I canceled automatic payment it stopped allowing me to like people altogether. Only giving 3 stars because I like the match percentage system and it's the most queer friendly app I've been able to find that doesn't have a garbage UI. I wouldn't recommend if I could find something better.

    I’m a typical urban millennial. I used every dating app on the market out there. I may be biased because I met my now-husband here but OkCupid is my favorite. I haven’t used the app is years (we’ve been together four years now) but I remember it was one of the nicer ones. I liked the fact that there was an emphasis on what the person is like, rather than on superficial things like the photos. Funnily enough, my husband didn’t even have a photo on here but because I read all the long answers he had on his profile (and the fact that we were a 99% match didn’t hurt 😄), we clicked and the rest is history. Ultimately, my takeaway from online dating is that it fosters a sort of superficial pickiness that treats individuals as dispensable, rather than as regular people trying to make themselves vulnerable with strangers in order to find love. So I think the way to find success with dating is to be kind to each other and authentic. It’s not about which app you use to meet folks as much as your own mindset when dating. OkCupid helps in that the kinds of folks here tend to care more about who you really are, rather than what they dream you up to be. So you’re in the right place (if there is such a place in the virtual world)! It certainly gave me my happy ending and that earns it my highest rating!

    I have used many dating apps, none of them has turned into a marriage. I haven’t been back to this app in more than 4 years, but whenever people ask me where I met my husband, I was proud to recommend them OkCupid. I can’t imagine how people are dating now with Covid going on. But dating is a hard and brutal game. You gotta know yourself before anything else. I can't believe what a team we are and how we worked out, considering we were born in the opposite side of the globe, grew up in completely different culture and with 9 years of age difference. We had 91% compatibility on OkCupid. Our life goals align, but we are so different in many ways which make things interesting. We can talk to each other about anything, yet laughing at each other as some of the things we do are so “foreign” to each other, but then we realize that we indeed want the same thing, just have a different process. In today’s day and age, it’s so easy to get distracted. While we hold some principles tightly to our hearts, we also need to be patient and give people a chance to express themselves, and most importantly, listen and try to find that common ground. You never know who’ll surprise you and sweep you off your feet. Happy dating everyone. May we all find our soulmates.
  • Could be better Aug 6, 2020

    By AsherBlumenthal
    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.

    In the earlier days of dating sites, okcupid was a great concept - you could search for people based on interests, ethnicity, etc. Now, it's just become exactly like all the swipe apps. You can't control who you're searching and you'll just get the same people showing up multiple times even after saying no to them. I get that's what is in and what's popular, but personally I think it's a terrible way to meet people. The only thing you can really filter now is age, and it doesn't really work...

    By Candycorn333
    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!

    I repeatedly have matches disappear, which I would normally assume they just unmatched me. Except I keep getting notifications that they sent me a message, but I don't even see their profile in my matches any more. Also repeatedly get notifications that I matched with someone or received an intro, but then there's nothing there. I'm not sure if there's something wrong with the app or if people are really matching with me just to unmatch me 5 minutes later before I've even opened the app.
  • Found my soulmate! 5 Stars! Apr 24, 2020

    By BanjoZman
    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!

    Swiping sucks. Not only does it limit your view, but it's too damn easy to accidentally swipe an account away in one direction or the other, which literally just happened to me on a 97% match that I wanted to swipe right on, when all I was doing was trying to scroll down. 🤬 (Edited to add: I similarly discovered that an accidental hit of the spacebar on the full web browser version also resulted in an inadvertent Pass... 5/15/22 update, yet another inadvertent swipe left 🤬)

    App is a money sink. You can only like 3-4 people per day (much less than any other site) unless you pay the monthly subscription. Anyone who likes you won't be pushed to the front making it impossible to match back... unless you pay and even then it's mostly bots. It's a worse tinder/bumble but with extra steps. It's disappointing that every dating site seems intent on racing each other to the bottom.
  • Terrible dating app Nov 7, 2019

    By cgcg222
    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 brag...lol...just 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.

    I have a paid account. I received likes and intros. Suddenly they all disappeared. Where are they? This is the last time i pay for an account. The moment i pay for the upgrade, all of my likes and intros are gone! I've uninstalled and reinstalled and the problem still occurs. I *only*use this app when I pay, so if it doesn't work when i drop $$$ on it, then it is useless altogether
  • Used to be great Feb 18, 2020

    By mytw0b1ts
    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.

    The app makes a big deal about being free but there is little point to it unless you are looking for some 2-4 hours away from you. You can't make your distance a deal breaker without paying them, you can search for people nearby without paying them. Sure you can left swipe people but the app just continues to give you people great distances away. I was getting matches from another state. All in all it seems like okcupid is no longer free user friendly and all about making their money.
  • Fake accounts galore. This app is not worth my time. Feb 27, 2022

    By TN4U
    I usually don’t write reviews for apps but I need to share my horrible experience with this app. Let me tell you right now that I’ve been using this app for a good year and had no positive results. I didn’t use premium because it’s just not worth my money, and thus the people that are shown on my feed are either definitely not my type, way too far away (I set my distance to 25mi and I saw profiles from SEVERAL U.S. STATES OVER), or are clearly fake profiles out to steal my information. For example, I’ve matched with someone who wanted my number right away. Instant red flag. When I gave them my number anyway and we started talking, they gave me a long story about how they just got out of a toxic relationship, that they were looking to hookup, and that they’re turning 18 soon. The problem with this? Their OKcupid profile clearly stated that they were 19, looking for friends only, and mentioned that they haven’t been in a relationship for quite a while. The worst part? I’ve seen that exact copy-paste story from a different user I’ve previously matched with (and blocked). They even forgot my name. I became so frustrated that I deleted my account and removed this app from my phone. I may not have had much luck with dating apps, but I’m no longer going to waste my time using this one. Do yourself a favor and avoid using this app.

    This app is a scam! When I registered, I quickly received 20+ likes to my profile. I tried the half-off one-month membership, and the vast majority of the likes I had were from spam accounts in other countries. I've used dating apps in the past and have gone on dates with attractive women, but I barely got any new likes after I subscribed. When my one-month membership expired, I suddenly had 20 likes on my profile again. You also can't see messages unless you match first. A total waste of time!
  • Disappointed Aug 13, 2020

    By Mel Gamboa
    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.
  • Apr 3, 2022

    By Tyler B
    This app requires micro transactions for most things now. You can't see lists of likes, messages, or read receipts of messages anymore without premium, or 1-time features now. It is very expensive for subscription, around 40-60/mo just so you can see your list of likes received! No one responds to messages? Can receive almost no likes for months. Soon as subscription lapses, have half a year's worth in 2 days...and over half of all likes will be scams from other countries.

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!
  • Found my soulmate! 5 Stars! Apr 24, 2020

    By BanjoZman
    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!
  • Best Dating App on the Market! Apr 17, 2019

    By roboticactions
    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.

    By Gabriel B's mom
    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.

    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
  • So I finally found my soulmate... Dec 31, 2019

    By Chelly430
    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💕

    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!!!!
  • Ok cupid lives up to its name. Jan 7, 2021

    By thankfuloffer
    The application is OK. You need to obviously purchase a membership in order to see people who like you , so if you can’t see who likes you hopefully they message you since is free. You can message, which is cool because the people who do pay most likely have a job. The Questions are random sometime makes me feel fit to the times with covid which is annoy for me because it’s already in each aspect of our lives. You think they think of us as adults who are responsible enough to pay for an over priced app, and get hit by Cupid arrow , we could all do are part by now. I also wish their was a way to regulate hight. Then ask for more money to see new people. All that should be in included for 6*.** sixth sometime for 3 mo only. You think they work around the clock to fine you a wife . I never 100% match , if that’s even possible. And “that Incognito is a separate subscription from Basic of Premium, and does not include any of those features” All that I feel should all be combined.. over all experience haven’t met anyone yet, OK. It’s be cool to add a chatroom or a way to communicate with more people at once for non-monogamy.
  • Sapiosexual dating pros and cons Dec 26, 2018

    By Mithrandir Miles
    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, now is just good Dec 23, 2020

    By Carb man
    OkCupid has been one of my favorite dating apps for the way it allows so many ways to get to know people due the questions. But two things have cheapened the quality of the app. First, the list of “liked you” people on the app recently started having it so you can either hit the “X” or the heart with it actually opening someone’s profile to do it. Seems to make things easier right? Well, in reality, the space between the X and the heart is so small you can accidentally pass on someone quite easily that you meant you meant to like. I’ve accidentally eliminated someone I was going to like just by scrolling! Also, I thought it was really rotten when read receipts used to be a feature for premium members. Now? You can pay an extra 20-30 bucks for read receipts. How ticky tack! So like I said before, they took a great app and did two things that reduced it to just good. I feel a little jipped. I’m a paying member, they already have my my money, who cares what he says right? I’ll keep paying for it cause it’s still one of the best apps there is, but it’s not cool to squeeze people
  • Please fix the app Dec 26, 2019

    By Irritated with Mingle
    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.
  • I’m being generous. May 8, 2018

    By Un petite Matisse
    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.
  • Don’t even try here, men. Oct 31, 2017

    By noway886
    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! 👎
  • The only dating app/site worth your time. Nov 7, 2021

    By ecmanaut
    About 10% as good as a few years ago before it started mimicking Tinder, but they still haven’t killed the good core if you pay a bit of attention and put some work into that question set. For non-OkCupid people: the dating engine under this app knocks all competition out of the water, if you write up a profile and answer a busload of match questions (assuming you live in a somewhat urban area, people that show up on your radar get good after about a hundred questions answered and pretty invariably great after a thousand, if the match scores are in the 90%+ bracket). Compare OkCupid with all pay sites, whose corporate interests include feeding you inactive profiles and using your attempt to reach out to the person to tempt them to spend money to get active again and become able to respond, it's easy to see why OkCupid knocks the competition out of the water. The push notification about people near you needs to get cleared when you have seen it, though.
  • Bring back match search Jul 23, 2020

    By Fddggvbjkhgfcvbnjjhgfff
    I’ve used this site on and off for a decade. It’s the best out there for meeting smart people. The new updates make it harder and less useful. What sets OkC apart is the informative Mach percentage. I want to filter all matches through this (I am smart enough to look at how many questions they’ve answered and decide for myself if it’s meaningful). As a reasonably attractive woman the only way I can meet good people is if I am empowered to choose. It’s just noise to get a bunch of likes from 80% matches. I want to be able to see only 90% plus matches then decide who to message. I’m not interested in your predefined suggestions based on answers to questions. Give me the power to choose which questions to filter by. Suggesting that filling out the preferences section helps is not true. I see great guys who don’t want kids, which is totally useless. I don’t want to see these men at all! Please give me back the ability to perform searches according to what I prioritize, not you!
  • SO Much better than Match, etc. Mar 2, 2021

    By ALLINPLACEINC.com
    I had been using match for months with 0 luck and some of the other sites seem to be quite the scam. There’s a profile that actually notes “Match refugee”, as they hold us hostage to connecting in very little to no time. Not with OK Cupid, though. It’s legit and I’ve gotten many nice messages with guys who really align, as there matching algorithm is on point. Happily, I have my 1st date lined up on day 2 of being back on it. The only reason I gave it a 4 star is the last serious relationship of nearly 3 months that i was in, I found through this. I soon learned he was a BAD man. All I can say is Thank god my gut kicked in and that I’m smart enough to ask a guys full name, just as I give mine. We all ought to exchange our prior to chatting on the phone, forget meeting. Only one guy on here so far, out of 45 matches and more than half that in messages, are giving me grief about it. So, THAT’s likely not a match. Lol. Thank you, next! Thanks to OKC, it’s more efficient and effective :)
  • Expensive, effective, no longer creative Oct 2, 2021

    By Sam Floss
    I used Ok Cupid long ago when it was cheap and more of a social network. I dated some good people and still have friends from that experience, years later. But it has lost a lot of its initial charm and usefulness. The initial questions long ago used to be aggressively kinky. Now, initial questions seem designed to screen out people who might kill each other! For that I am grateful, and will continue my subscription a little longer, but I miss the puzzles and questionnaires that made you really THINK. Think about who you are and what qualities in another person might be compatible. The journals and group discussions and creative pages you could play with, made it possible to get to know people in many different ways. But that’s all gone now. Ok Cupid has lost its flexibility and creativity. It is a little more thoughtful than some of the other dating sites. It is overpriced.
  • May 11, 2022

    By Beckie Campbell
    It's far too expensive for the subscription service. I did it for a month because I was tired of running out of likes (seriously, okc? I have to pay TWENTY dollars a month for basic functionality????) and when I canceled automatic payment it stopped allowing me to like people altogether. Only giving 3 stars because I like the match percentage system and it's the most queer friendly app I've been able to find that doesn't have a garbage UI. I wouldn't recommend if I could find something better.
  • Could be better Aug 6, 2020

    By AsherBlumenthal
    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.

    In the earlier days of dating sites, okcupid was a great concept - you could search for people based on interests, ethnicity, etc. Now, it's just become exactly like all the swipe apps. You can't control who you're searching and you'll just get the same people showing up multiple times even after saying no to them. I get that's what is in and what's popular, but personally I think it's a terrible way to meet people. The only thing you can really filter now is age, and it doesn't really work...

    I repeatedly have matches disappear, which I would normally assume they just unmatched me. Except I keep getting notifications that they sent me a message, but I don't even see their profile in my matches any more. Also repeatedly get notifications that I matched with someone or received an intro, but then there's nothing there. I'm not sure if there's something wrong with the app or if people are really matching with me just to unmatch me 5 minutes later before I've even opened the app.

I liked okc before because you could know so much about someone if they'd taken the time to fill out there profile, but its just gone downhill, lots of technical issues and slow response time from customer support. Also, the app just doesnt have enough people. I ran out of matches in a few days.

True there are a lot of thing you have to pay for like being able to see "likes" but at least you can send and receive basic messages for free which is a rarity. Basically a free site and overall probably best in it's class which isn't saying much
  • Still a good site but has definitely changed for the worse May 29, 2018

    By travelmad478
    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.
  • used to be better, now it's just Tinder+ Oct 8, 2020

    By SmashmasReviews
    i started using OKC about 4 years ago or so when you could still visit a person's profile after you've messaged them and you could message someone without liking them. over the course of those 4 years, OKC has gradually been stripping away features. nowadays, it feels a lot like Tinder, except more with relationships in mind rather than hookups. and that's really not a good thing, because it makes things feel really impersonal. and the removal of viewing profiles after sending a message (unless they like you back) is both a positive and negative. on the one hand, it prevents creepy stalkers from harassing people. on the other hand, if you sent a message to that person and then thought, "i want to reread something i read on their profile; i don't think we're actually a good match", you can't go back and unmatch with that person if you've already messaged them i think that OKC is still a decent service, but it really feels like by changing its format as much as it did it's lost a lot of what made it unique
  • Used to be Ok; Now it’s Worth Nothing Jan 27, 2021

    By itzsgrace
    I started using this app during the whole covid thing and when it really started. Back in March of 2020 I had knee surgery so I thought maybe it could help me make some friends or interact with people. It was ok. Of course some people were weirdos who wanted nudes and stuff but that’s honestly expected. I have been on and off the app since I can’t get people to notice me and tlak to me, and often times the person I’m talking to leaves or apparently was never part of the whole cite thing. However, recently I tried to log in my account and it’s not working anymore. Every time I log in it takes me back to the home screen of the app. I tried the website, same thing with me. I tried to log in it works but IT TAKES ME BACK TO THE FRIKKIN HOME PAGE EVER TIME I looked to see if my account was deleted and it was not, and even so, like I can’t even get in and do anything. It’s like a glitch or something. Idk, just wanted to let you all know that sometimes glitches can occur like this one and idk what else to do. So yeah :)

    Swiping sucks. Not only does it limit your view, but it's too damn easy to accidentally swipe an account away in one direction or the other, which literally just happened to me on a 97% match that I wanted to swipe right on, when all I was doing was trying to scroll down. 🤬 (Edited to add: I similarly discovered that an accidental hit of the spacebar on the full web browser version also resulted in an inadvertent Pass... 5/15/22 update, yet another inadvertent swipe left 🤬)
  • Terrible dating app Nov 7, 2019

    By cgcg222
    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 brag...lol...just 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.
  • Used to be great Feb 18, 2020

    By mytw0b1ts
    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.

    The app makes a big deal about being free but there is little point to it unless you are looking for some 2-4 hours away from you. You can't make your distance a deal breaker without paying them, you can search for people nearby without paying them. Sure you can left swipe people but the app just continues to give you people great distances away. I was getting matches from another state. All in all it seems like okcupid is no longer free user friendly and all about making their money.
  • This app is awful Sep 28, 2018

    By Jmcsofly
    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.

    Subpar to say the least. What is the point of liking somebody if they have to pay to even see the like? Virtually no way to interact with other users without paying. Absolutely crawling with fake profiles. 90% of mynprofile interactions are with profiles located asia? Even when my distance preferences were set at 50 miles. Has alot of potential to be a good app, but is currently lacking.
  • Weird rules and preys on lonely men. Nov 25, 2018

    By Vcrbetamax
    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.

    Free and great to use with a poor UI and features that should 100% have an option to toggle. Passport isn't ideal for me as a person and neither is the live option. Honestly should be able to disable both in the UI, and honestly I'd do it even if i had to pay. Please also give me an undo button shaking doesn't usually work.
  • Previous fan, increasingly disappointed May 3, 2021

    By emptying mimd
    All okcupid cares about is money nowadays. They don't care about their customers at all. Complaints: 1) the green "online" dot shows up next to somebody's name when they are presumably online. What OKC fails to tell anyone is that this dot remains illuminated 30 minutes after you've signed out. Just think of all the potential issues and miscommunication that could and does cause! I guarantee you this has caused countless budding romances to have turbulence. It's like who in their right mind would want the online dot to work that way? Oh, a company that wants to make it appear there are more active users in order to essentially make more money, that's who. What is truly upsetting is that you know they had a meeting to discuss this change in site function, and they decided to say essentially, "screw the users, hello more dollars." 2) The way they push politics on their site functioning is a bit heavy handed at times. Would rather politics simply be more neutral. 3) Over the years they have continued to erode the value of their premium service by separating out the features and charging separately for them. Then they've also jacked the cost of those separate features the last year or two. Thanks for that OKC, much appreciated!!!
  • Passport (Pen Pal) Feature is a Scam Dec 30, 2021

    By Obstreperosity
    Those 99+ likes that you have—which OkCupid incessantly hounds you to purchase a Premium subscription for—are mostly from people who live thousands of miles away on different continents. What is the point of that? People aren’t on OkCupid to find pen pals—we want people who live nearby so that we can meet in-person and build a meaningful relationship. It seems that the Passport feature only exists to fool people into believing that they have a lot of likes from nearby users so they’ll pay for a Premium subscription to see who they are. Don’t expect OkCupid to remove it any time soon because it’s likely working as intended—to increase revenues without doing anything to help those of us looking for someone in the local area. (In fact, by removing the search feature years ago, OkCupid effectively became just another gimmicky dating app, albeit with the ability to create an extensive, detailed profile.) Stop liking people you find in the Passport section because it’s only exacerbating the problem. Better yet, just ignore the Passport section altogether—don’t even open it to look. If enough of us do that, maybe they’ll realize that it’s something we don’t want or use and it will be removed.

    App is a money sink. You can only like 3-4 people per day (much less than any other site) unless you pay the monthly subscription. Anyone who likes you won't be pushed to the front making it impossible to match back... unless you pay and even then it's mostly bots. It's a worse tinder/bumble but with extra steps. It's disappointing that every dating site seems intent on racing each other to the bottom.

    I have a paid account. I received likes and intros. Suddenly they all disappeared. Where are they? This is the last time i pay for an account. The moment i pay for the upgrade, all of my likes and intros are gone! I've uninstalled and reinstalled and the problem still occurs. I *only*use this app when I pay, so if it doesn't work when i drop $$$ on it, then it is useless altogether
  • Fake accounts galore. This app is not worth my time. Feb 27, 2022

    By TN4U
    I usually don’t write reviews for apps but I need to share my horrible experience with this app. Let me tell you right now that I’ve been using this app for a good year and had no positive results. I didn’t use premium because it’s just not worth my money, and thus the people that are shown on my feed are either definitely not my type, way too far away (I set my distance to 25mi and I saw profiles from SEVERAL U.S. STATES OVER), or are clearly fake profiles out to steal my information. For example, I’ve matched with someone who wanted my number right away. Instant red flag. When I gave them my number anyway and we started talking, they gave me a long story about how they just got out of a toxic relationship, that they were looking to hookup, and that they’re turning 18 soon. The problem with this? Their OKcupid profile clearly stated that they were 19, looking for friends only, and mentioned that they haven’t been in a relationship for quite a while. The worst part? I’ve seen that exact copy-paste story from a different user I’ve previously matched with (and blocked). They even forgot my name. I became so frustrated that I deleted my account and removed this app from my phone. I may not have had much luck with dating apps, but I’m no longer going to waste my time using this one. Do yourself a favor and avoid using this app.

    This app is a scam! When I registered, I quickly received 20+ likes to my profile. I tried the half-off one-month membership, and the vast majority of the likes I had were from spam accounts in other countries. I've used dating apps in the past and have gone on dates with attractive women, but I barely got any new likes after I subscribed. When my one-month membership expired, I suddenly had 20 likes on my profile again. You also can't see messages unless you match first. A total waste of time!

    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.

    This app requires micro transactions for most things now. You can't see lists of likes, messages, or read receipts of messages anymore without premium, or 1-time features now. It is very expensive for subscription, around 40-60/mo just so you can see your list of likes received! No one responds to messages? Can receive almost no likes for months. Soon as subscription lapses, have half a year's worth in 2 days...and over half of all likes will be scams from other countries.

    Not that good of an app. U can swipe all u want but no chance of actual communication unless your paying. Banned for no reason or because someone didn't like what I had to say.. this app didn't make sense with matching. I'd see a match of over 90% and when I checked, there were only 11 answers to go off from.. how does that get you such a high percentage? Have to pay to see likes and need to respond to messages listed first before being able to see other messages.. waste of time really.

    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.

    - Day 1, got a ton of likes from people thousands of miles away. Not sure if they're looking for money or what but this really needs moderating. - Thankfully there's a "hide me because I'm getting unwanted likes" feature... which costs extra. - You can sign up for premium on the app but need to use a browser to cancel. This may have been a good platform at one point, but it does not seem like one now.
  • Used To Be Good, Now Just Superficial Jan 14, 2018

    By >JD
    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.
