A lot of people recommended this site, when I first signed up I got a lot of likes, of course you have to pay to see who they are. So I paid the lowest price in Canadian dollars and what happens? All of them live outside of my location, turns out you have to keep paying just for the people outside of you're location can't like you. And so many people don't even bother uploading a photo, they always just have 1 picture of flowers or their pet, so they are telling me they are flowers or an animal? Why is there no rule for dating sites to you HAVE to upload pictures of YOU or they delete your account. I get a like I go and check and it's a blurry random Google Image. I know it's not just OKCupid that does this but they are the only ones to make it so you have to keep paying to only get likes in your location, the minute you stop you get flooded with likes mostly in the Philippines.

I paid 45 dollars to find out that 95% of my likes are coming from possibly fake profiles from all over the world. Even if they're not fake I'm sick of "swiping left" on people because they live 8000 miles away. Bumble allows you to pay for a day pass to check out your likes which is nice and cheap and everyone is within your preset geographical specifications. OkC doesn't have a day pass. What they do have are hundreds of profiles that like your profile and when you finally give in and pay for the month because you have 112 likes you find out that the VAST majority of these people aren't even within driving distance. I will be deleting my account when my subscription is up.

    Awful site. Absolutely ridiculous. A total waste of time. Lots of obviously fake profiles and stolen pics and endless foreign scammers. In the event you do manage to start a conversation, the person disappears. I suspect that the employees of OKC are behind many of the fake profiles and they engage in fake conversations to get people to stay and pay. I really HATE OKC because it has wasted so much of my time. Despicable.

    Do not use this company. They're a scam and full of bots and scammers. They need to shut this company down. I'm tired of it. This and being scammed. The company has out of country bots who send fake emails then scam you for money.

    To put it bluntly - Okcupid.com is the cesspool of all dating apps/websites. There are no redeeming values about it anymore. It has become flooded with fake profiles of people who swipe right on you, to feed the urge for you to pay and find out who "liked" you. Strangely, in the event you do swipe right on these people and start a normal conversation, they suddenly disappear from your feed. I do believe that there is some sort of collusion with profiles under okcupid to get people to pay. Not to mention the swarm of profiles from outside of the US randomly setting their location as somewhere local, only to find out they live halfway across the world. There's nothing wrong with meeting someone from abroad, however it can be frustrating for those who want to meet someone nearby. I could go on, but to put it simply- don't waste your time and money on this trash excuse of a "dating" site/app.

    OKC used to be a decent dating site, with a reasonable price to use and decent algorithms for matching you with people of interest. Those days are LONG gone!! It's now utter garbage. You get inundated with likes by foreign women and you have no way to filter them out, so you get a daily swarm of mail-order-bride-wannabes.

    OKCupid uses these "likes" to get you to sign up for a membership, then you find out that they're just crap after you do, which is ridiculous given the service is now $50/month and it sucks. If you have any sort of parameters set up for matches within your region, the pool is VERY small, so you basically have nothing to choose from one you pass on the first round of matches. Over a month's time I was a member I think I had maybe four or five new matches come through after I culled the chaff that was the first round. Don't waste your money or time using OKC, it's awful.

    I took their 50% offer and bought 1 month for $25. If you are looking to throw money away, this is one place to do it. Like most dating apps, you have to pay them if you want to see who likes you. So who liked me? Kenya. Somalia. Philippines, Thailand. Indonesia but not a single person from the US, much less from Colorado where I live. The day after I paid to subscribe, their customer pool dried up and never came back. You're lucky if 2 or 3 new ones pop up daily. This website/service is a terrible and total waste of money. Give your money to a homeless person instead. It's a rotten company and rotten service.

    Someone hacked my account, stole my info and photos and OkCupid has done nothing about it! I responded to the email they sent saying my email had changed. It took days for them to respond and when they did they asked for a reference number that was already in the email I had just sent them! I responded with the number requested days ago and they still have not responded. This is such a violating feeling! Violation of my privacy!

    Many Americans live WITHIN 100 miles or much less of international borders. The algorithm this company uses for matches does not recognize borders for matching and recommendations, even if requested. Especially during COVID this glaring omission in selecting parameters rendered it a waste of money for northern and southern U.S. denizens. They will not refund unhappy users getting "matches" primarily from another country. Boo for not correcting this or offering refunds. Not customer advocates.

    OkCupid, when it first came out actually used to be a very reasonably priced site. It wasn't even as much about memberships and things like that, but I noticed these past few years their membership prices are about just as much as Match.com and Eharmony sites. The interface is getting worse and worse. Most of the profiles look VERY phony. I've been contacted more than four or five times by someone using fake pictures (just literally did Google image searches on them and realized pictures were fake). This site is terrible.

    Another thing is I see countless profiles saying "Hi I DON'T have a membership so I can't see likes or send messages"...I mean come on OKCupid, get it together. If people are putting that in their profile make some kind of obligation to either separate non-paying members to have a section for paying members or premium members for ease of contact and communication. It makes it extremely difficult as a premium paying member that the other person cant contact me or even see my like or message because they aren't a premium member. It's RIDICULOUS and it actually makes your site very not user-friendly.

    Also, I feel like the site is supporting one side more than the other. Even though I don't have a problem with the LGBTQ community or anything like that, I feel like the site is very prominent with this group of individuals so it makes it very difficult to find someone who might share my beliefs or foundation in a heterosexual monogamous relationship. Seeing a lot of sarcastic or mocky profiles about this is very tasteless and having to sift through multiple polys, bi, asexual, or "couple" profiles shouldn't have to be.

    I mean you need to either change your element to suit that type of group of people and make this dating site specifically geared towards that community altogether. State that somewhere in your handle just like sites that actually state they are specifically for gays or transexuals or people who might have disabilities or a friend/hangout site...etc... I feel like there are barely any people on there that are real or searching for anything remotely serious...

    OkCupid.com author review by Mark Brooks

    OKCupid.com is a free site that offers members the ability to upgrade their experience by subscribing to a premium membership. Created in 2004, the site serves millions of members through a unique profile format and optional question and answer section.

    • Unique profile format: Many dating sites only ask members to tell a little bit about themselves and who they are looking for. OKCupid makes it easier to learn more about prospective dates through open ended profile questions including six things you can't live without, what you are good at, what you are doing with your life, what you like to do on a friday night and more.

    • Thousands of optional questions: OKCupid has a unique feature that allows you to answer as many or as few multiple questions on topics ranging from values and relationship goals to personal hygiene and basic math skills. You can then compare your answers to those of people whose profiles you are viewing.

    • Advanced search algorithm: Users can choose both physical and value-based attributes to search for, improving the quality of the matches they find. Some criteria are only available via upgraded membership.

    • Anonymous email network: Users can email potential matches through OKCupid.com's own messaging service, allowing them to keep their identities and contact info private until they are ready to share it.

    • Profiles are screened before being posted: OKCupid.com staff screens profiles and photos before posting to ensure only appropriate information makes it onto the site.
