The new updates have pretty much ruined it. And let me explain why. The reason is fine and good. But has anyone tested writing that first message? It moves below my keyboard and I can't read anything. Why can't the text box move up so I can read what I'm typing?
Send a message to someone that hasn't liked you yet by swiping and they won't get it. Receive a message from someone you haven't liked yet by swiping right and you won't receive it. Nowhere is it mentioned that you have to swipe on every potential match to use the app or else messages get completely lost and as an added bonus you won't be able to view their profile ever again! Most people don't do this and never receive a message or have one they sent read. This is the most stupid messaging policy of any dating app ever and no stupid excuse will excuse it. Bring back the app from a year ago! Gone from being the best to the absolute worst!
Something you may not have known about okay cupid. So I made a profile on here as a joke to bother a friend of mine. I found her profile sent her a message. About an hour later I told her about it and guess what? She NEVER got it. Now that I'm reading reviews I can verify that if the person didn't like your profile they don't receive your message so if you took the time to write something worth while they won't see it. For the laides if your wondering why you don't get messages or very little now you know. Lastly my solution for this app why not leave it optional for the memebers if they want to receive messages from users they haven't liked.
Met my two exes via Okcupid, and I've even paid for the subscription. After the changes they made a few months ago, I'm getting zero replies to my messages. (All my messages are very polite, and more than just "hey, how are you?")
This app was was really boring. You can't message anyone unless you hit the like button first. No "who viewed me" feature. Can't even send photos to each other while messaging... Sucks.
So what exactly is the logic behind not being able to delete messages anymore? Edit: The response I received was to "Block" the user. This was apparently their solution to prevent accidental deletions and missed connections. Please see the full explanation for this below. I'd like to respond to this with a question: What if I don't want to block the person? On more than one occasion someone has re-connected with me after ceasing communication for long periods (usually because they'd found someone and wanted to focus on that person). For me, I have no reason to keep their messages but I also don't feel a need to block them. Why force this resolution? Why not just make it harder to delete a message. People want to unclutter their inboxes. By you forcing us to block users to do this you leave us with the options of being forced to miss possible future connections or an unsatisfactory experience because have a box full of messages. You might also note that the more messages that sit in the inbox, the longer it'll take to load over time which isn't the best for performance and user satisfaction either. Horrible decision and whoever decided on this should be fired immediately.
