Better dates come from better connections. That’s why OkCupid shows off who you really are, beyond just a photo. You should get noticed for what makes you, well, you—because you deserve what dating deserves: better.
HOW IT WORKS
Rich profiles highlight your personality and interests. Questions inform our algorithm so we get to know your deal breakers, and what you care about most. OkCupid Discovery helps you search for people who share your passions. Our one-of-a-kind messaging system lets you focus only on the connections you’re interested in, and none of the ones you’re not.
Sounds like a nice change, right?

Ratings and Reviews
Ok, let’s dive a little deeper.
OK Cupid has been around for quite a while on the internets, but when I got back into the dating scene after a pretty long time I didn’t consider it right away. But I’m glad I eventually did. Yes, it has an app and here you are deciding if you should bother with it. People tend to use Tinder these days, right? But I’m glad I downloaded OKC and reactivated my account. OKC goes beyond tinder and the like in that they have questions that assess the user’s personality and leanings (political/philosophical/religious/relational/sexual or lack thereof) and attempts to match them with similar/compatible people. Answering the questions isn’t mandatory nor intrusive, but it helps a lot (and it’s also an icebreaker of sorts). So people on OKC tend to have put more effort into their profiles and seem to be more serious about meeting someone. If you are actually interested in reading (skimming, at least) a profile before swiping right, this could be the place for you.
There are some limitations to the app but if you login on the web you can access a few more features. Without a paid account you can’t see who likes you. But if you do find someone who seems great, it’s an incentive to message them. If you both like each other then you’ll see the match. All of the dating apps have some UI quirks. OKC seems to function pretty well overall. If you’re looking to meet someone and want to get into some depth with the match, I recommend it.
I had an issue with having two profiles. In the same day I paid twice for an old profile from 10 years ago as well as my new one; both under the same email address. I received a response after writing to OKC a few times since February. I had misspoken and said that I have 2 accounts rather than two profiles. The response I got was “you do not have 2 accounts as it is not possible” and “your profile will be cancelled July 23rd”. While this was clarifying it did not clear up the fact that I had paid for 2 6 month profiles by mistake. It was my mistake so I don’t expect to be reimbursed though I would appreciate it if I could be. I updated the old profile that I have seen once in a while, so that things are consistent, which I see somehow, once in a while though I don’t know how to access it. One person I was corresponding with thought I had 2 profiles on purpose. I have addressed the issue by including an explanation in my self summary in both profiles. Any light shed on this would be appreciated. I don’t know if OKC indicates to its audience a member’s last time on OKC but I consider this to be something that I’d like to be private. I have friends and people I am interested in and don’t want feelings to be hurt because of my use of your site. I could use some help understanding how to control what other members see in my profile, namely when I am on the site.
The people you swipe left on get recycled back into doubletake if they change something on their profile. Which is only useful (from a girls perspective) if they went from one shirtless pic of just their torso, to any amount of pics with any face shots that don’t include sunglasses or extreme distance from the camera. OR if they finished writing their profile. And since you can’t filter profiles for free, I will usually block the doubletakes that I don’t want to filter back because either: I know the person, it’s someone I never want to date like a married couple or a woman (somehow they slip in??). However, I recently come across a open relationship profile that I had previously blocked (the day before). I know this because not only did I remember the profile and name, when I went to block them, my only option was to UNblock them. And I saw at the bottom that red banner that normally pops up after you blocked someone that says “you have blocked Mark”. Isn’t the point of blocking so I don’t see the person again??? I mean technically swiping left is supposed to do that. on tinder you can swipe down or up (one of those) to decide later. Seems like that should be an option here. Every time I see a repeat profile on the doubletake (even tho I’ve swiped left 4 times...) I feel like the app is saying “are you sure??? He looks really lonely, why don’t you just talk to him it looks like he needs it” like really?
You may want to expand your Looking For settings to see if that helps — You will be able to ‘reset’ your Passes if matches are running low. Learn more here: https://theblog.okcupid.com/how-the-new-pass-button-works-edd3a13a85ff
