OKC as an online community has become a necessity if you want to date online. For a free site it offers decent tools to "pre-screen" people. Given time, I've met some great people and developed great relationships. As an app, it sucks. Profile edits won't save, photos and questions on other profiles sometimes refuse to load, and at times, the inbox (the most important part) will not load messages or send messages. All this even happens on WiFi, and plagues multiple platforms.
Have used this on and off several times over the last few years. Cannot fault it really although if you you're not getting results then I strongly recommend that you you read some books on dating, as well as books on managing your online profile, and learn to provide good photos. Drawbacks are that there is no way to set up a verification system for dates, for example like on Fabswingers... So you have no clue when someone joined or if they have been trustworthy in keeping dates and meetings as agreed. I strongly recommend that Cupid incorporates this.
Had some issues but the rep replied to my comment here so it's fixed now. The app is overall very good with its features. Matches are great and the questions relevant. The only comment i have now is that regardless of good features, i get significantly less visitors on my list or messages compared to other apps. For example, on POF or Scruff I have 15-30 visitors on my profile per week. On Ok Cupid, i get literally 2 (!) visits per week. So, with better features but less visits, the app ranks average.
Update: not only does this app now not connect when I'm using Wi-Fi, but now I'm suspended for a TOS violation for absolutely no reason. Nothing I've said or done has been anything but polite, all the pictures are PG, my profile said nothing offensive, and I had just paid for a 6-month membership. Really ticked right now.
Location settings are messed up an don't show people near me, in fact it showed me people all over the world! I have updated, uninstalled, tried new phones, upgraded to the newest phone and guess what... still not working. Waste of time...
Shows the same users day after day, week after week. Like and double take features are bad ripoffs of Tinder. There is no social network verification to cut down on bots. OkCupid may have been one of the first dating sites, but it's also one of the worst.
So you message someone on OkCupid about this really great hat in their photo, and before you know it you’re dating! One night, while hanging out watching Guy Fieri things get steamy. They offer to come back wearing THE hat. When they return wearing a disgusting straw hat, it dawns on you that the whole relationship was built on the WRONG HAT.
Don’t let this happen again with our new photo messaging feature. Tap on the chat bubble over any photo and tell them exactly which hat you like.
