What Users Are Saying

“OkCupid is the best dating app out there. I’ve tried the rest.” - Greg, December 4, 2016

 “I’ve had some issues but the app is overall very good with its features. The only comment i have now is that regardless of good features, i get significantly less visitors on my profile or messages compared to other apps. So, with better features but less visits, the app ranks average.” - Dana, March 23, 2017

Signup Process

Signing up for OkCupid is a relatively simple process. You begin by selecting your gender and sexual preference. After that you must choose a username and password. Choose wisely, you username cannot be changed later on unless you pay to be an A-List member.

The next steps must be completed immediately so make sure you have some time before beginning the whole process. You’ll be prompted to share your age and set your personal preferences including what type of relationship you’re looking for—casual, friendship or serious dating. Next, add a photo and complete a short About Me section. 

Before beginning to use OkCupid, you must answer a set of 15 questions about yourself and your ideal match.

Matchmaking & Search Functions

Search

From the OkCupid homepage, you can search users with basic filters. Search by users who are online, featured, nearby or at random. Roll-over the user’s image to see some basic information including how they match up to what you’re looking for. Click on the image for the full profile. 

Browse Matches

Matches are made on OkCupid using its matchmaking algorithm. Browse your matches at any time. Matches can be sorted by the percent of the match, percent “enemy,” last time online or location.

 Match Criteria

Adjust your match results at any time by changing your search criteria. Search can be filtered based on height, background, availability, vices, education, kids, pets, and a keyword search by interest. Users who upgrade to A-List can use more extensive search filters which include attractiveness, body type, personality details, and more.

Double Take

This fun feature presents a string of potential matches to which you mark either “like” or “no.” This feature has similarities to Tinder, though you are presented with a full profile, allowing you to make an educated decision about the other person. If you both mark that you like each other, OkCupid will let you know.

Features & Communication Tools

Basic features offered by OkCupid include liking or hiding a profile, seeing the percent you matched with someone, and a green button showing who of your matches is currently online. While viewing photos you can click a message icon on the photo to start a conversation about the picture. Users can also see mutual likes and who they have marked as “liked.” 

OkCupid offers a feature called Double Take, similar to Zoosk’s Profile Carousel. Double Take displays the profiles of matches and allows you to like or remove the profile, with a continuous flow of potential dates.

 A-List Basic

Features include seeing who likes you, advanced search filters, browsing profiles invisibly, message filters, receipts when messages are read, no ads, ability to change your username, and a bigger inbox.

 A-List Premium

Features include all of the above plus a boost so that more users see your profile, seeing and being seen by more attractive matches, message priority (always appear at the top of their inbox), and seeing everyone’s public answers to questions before you answer.

OkCupid offers detailed safety tips on its site. In addition, OkCupid suggests reporting anyone who violates their terms and conditions.

Extremely Happy/ This Service OMG!!! I was super hesitant to try this service but didn't feel like sitting in Urgent Care for hours for my particular issue. The intake process was surprisingly super fast! And the app is very user friendly. Once I completed my medical history and input my insurance information, I spoke with the doctor in less than 5 minutes! And this was around 2:30! Mid-day!!! When it's usually impossible to get in and out of an urgent care facility. the whole process took less than 30 minutes! I promise, I do not write reviews, don't have time, but I had to take a few moments to write this review b/c I was thoroughly impressed! The actual doctor, Dr. Cynthia Horner was AWESOME! She was patient with my explanation for calling in today, I did not feel rushed AT ALL, which sometimes happens in urgent care offices, she was on top of all of my questions and I felt very comfortable with her diagnoses. She even offered some encouragement around my fitness goals! I am so impressed and will definitely tell all of my friends about this experience! Thank you sooo much!
