Full of scammers

published

In two months about 80% of my contacts were scammers. I wrote emails to OKCupid - no reply and reactions. It was difficult to find how to complain, how to contact them in that matter.

One of the best website designs, but not enough members

published

I really like the design of OkCupid, especially as it gives a wide range of options to select from in terms of gender identity, sexual orientation, and whether the person is interested in monogamy or non-monogamy. The Q&A section really helps to get a snapshot of people's relationship goals, values, worldview and political leanings which is valuable too. The only bad thing is that there aren't enough people on there.

Full of Scammers and Non Monogamists

published

Have been on the site for about 18 months. Seems to be increasingly attracting romance scammers or polyamourists/ non monogamists. Few others who are genuine. Lots of overseas scammers pretending to be locals.

Full of fake profiles and scammers

published

Initially looked ok but after a week discovered the only real people were totally desperate losers or totally gorgeous women - who were of course fake scammers. My advice. Dont join and on any site you go to google search the messages you get and reverse image search everyone. I was shocked at how many well known porn starts were messaging me because I ( a boring middle aged normal aussie guy) was somehow their urgent sexual fantasy. Lucky I quit before I was sucked in and ripped off.

published

Nothing to do there. The service I have been receiving wasn't up to the standards I expected for $50 monthly payment. I tested this site several times in different ways and what I waana say, that is as bad as expencive.

Non responsive customer care team

I join as it claimed free dating but quickly found that it wouldn't load anything except the upgrade page. Yes I admit I didn't read the terms properly chose the 6month option thinking it would be monthly so was shocked when they deducted the whole amount. After an hour of trying to maneuver my way round site unsuccessfully mind you, I managed to come across a guy I went to school with that was known as the local ice dealer, he claimed he was 8years younger than he is, his first line of his profile said funny, honest, doesn't drink, smoke or do drug. So 3 strikes this app is out! I contacted them to advise I was not happy n wanted a refund this was 28th Oct it's now 31st Oct n still no response.


Banned for telling 4 Chinese girls who contacted me , to get lost , all had the same profile pics.

This is NOT a private site !!!! OkCupid staff read the messages !!! How else do they send those odd replies ...you know the ones I'm talking about ! After banning me , I am glad I'm not using that crap site anymore ......someone looking in the keyhole ! Messages should be private , irrespective of content . If someone upsets someone ..unmatch them ! They must get kicks out of reading private messages !

Also , I was sick and tired of Philippines girls , asking for money ! Or , asking if I wanted a vdo show ! I would tell them to get lost also !
If you want to use OkCupid ......be prepared to share your content with the staff who work there ...nothing is private !

Ridiculous

published

Terrible app. Doesn't let you do anything without a photo then removes the photo of it isn't of you. So much for privacy or meeting over shared interests and compatibility. Just ridiculous.

Enjoy OKCupid the Most

Failure to remove reported profile

published

Site is okay
Reporting abuse and issues , things never get done
I reported a user for being a serial cheater after finding out 4-5 women are affected, also report it to oasis these sites do not care about user safety.

Met my long-term girlfriend on OkCupid

published

Was a lot of effort to filter through everyone, but the match-making system worked quite well. Better than Tinder though.

One of the better online dating sites

published

Admittedly online dating isn't the best form of dating but somehow this website has kept it up to a good standard. Honestly prefer face to face but for online dating I am rather partial to this website

Years ago it was a lot better. These days it is a bit ordinary.

published

Used to be a great site with the original owners since selling it has become quite ordinary. The questions which form the basis of the percentage scores are silly and don't allow for grey areas. The members are mostly Hard Left Feminists who actually hate men so you wonder why the bother.

On the bright side it is for free although they try and lure you to pay for a membership.


Had plenty of great dates from this site over the past 8 years. Best site on the net for dating. H

published

The fact you answer questions and see how others answered theirs is great. You can chat about the questions, read their profile, flick a FREE message to them, it's great

Excellent dating website if you want to save yourself some time. Only downside is lack of members.

The best dating site that I have tried so far.

published

I have met 2 long term partners and made some good friends on OK Cupid.

It is free, easier to use and has better matching than other sites that charge a small fortune. You have unlimited messaging at no charge and there are many members so with a little patience you should be able to find you match.

For a moderate charge you can get better search features which are helpful but not necessary.

The more detailed your profile, more questions answered and more pictures you have the better it will work for you.

Genuine, clever, informative

published

Having tried other sites, OKcupid is the best. It is well thought out and neatly presented, with genuine people on it.

. Best part is the question and answer facility that allows real insight into peoples' thinking and preferences. One can answer as few or as many as preferred, and those answered by one or both people being matched are shown only.

The profile has useful sections that prompt writing potential very revealing details.

I haven't seen many fake profiles, and had minimal approaches from those or from out-of-region people.

These features make OKcupid much better than, eg, C-Date (shoddy site crawling with professional contractors) or the second-best match.com (big pool, but many scammers and poor matching info).

Hello Not Happy
You say: "The members are mostly Hard Left Feminists who actually hate men"
I've joined this site and am not getting that. So am most interested to have you validate your statement. Was it:
(a) personal opinion
(b) observation based upon deep research
(b) anecdotal
(c) security hack of data
(d) private survey

And would also like to know HOW it was better years ago.I do not mean to attack you but would like to maximize the effectiveness of the site for me.
