Probably the best 3/5
I've used them all. Paid a ton of money for the big ones, swiped right on thousands of profiles on the cheap ones. Got nothing from any of them. (And I'm not ugly)
I've had three dates off of here without even subscribing. Don't get me wrong, it'll take hard work and determination if you're a guy on here, but it works, eventually. Online dating has become so stagnant, and users so flakey that it's best to go out and find someone. But if you don't have the time, I recommend this as the best out of all of them.
Love this app! 5/5
Seriously while most complain about the creeps or the quantity of questions, this apps algorithm really seems to work. All the dates I have gone on have been successful in their own right. I became friends with two of them and I am currently happily dating one. <3
My only issue is currently I wanted to go back onto my old account to see my old messages with my boyfriend(I know it's sickeningly cute) but I forgot my password. I selected to reset my password and got the email but the email just redirects me to the app again with no help fixing the situation ??? This also happens when I hit "App Support" here in the App Store?!?
Any help would be appreciated !!! <3
This site is a joke 1/5
it takes a good chunks of time to fill out a profile and answer a throng of questions
Most people don't take it seriously and don't answer questions or fill out a profile since this is free
You have to pay to get noticed
You have to buy a subscription to use basic filter features
The tinder swiping functions ridiculous unless you pay to see who swooped right
It leaves guys in a vicious cycle of having to read profiles to craft a message in hopes of getting a response
It leaves girls in a cycle of blocking guys who send inappropriate messages
It doesn't compare you to another person other than percentages in different categories
It doesn't have a conversation starter feature. I'd love to know that a person I match with likes the same book, movie, show, or conspiracy theory
It's too confusing to cancel the A-list subscription
I've gone on three dates in the last month and they were all great even though none turned into a relationship
I've had some fun conversations
I've gotten a chuckle out of some creepy messages
With this new update, messaging has gotten WAY WORSE. When I send one message it says failed then I leave the conversation and go back to it and it says I sent the same message like 8 times! Very annoying please fix it.
So after less than 24 hours of creating my account, it was suspended due to "violation of terms" no other explanation, no email, and no way to contact support without signing in. But I can't sign in because my account is suspended. All I did was upload some selfies and answer questions. I was actually in the process of answering questions when my account was suspended. What a load of crap.
Success Story 5/5
I am now marrying my fiancé that I met on here!! We have been together for 2 1/5 years and soon to be married!! We met on here and two weeks later met in person! I am so excited to be marrying this man!
Evil ugly people on this app! 1/5
Within a few hours of having this app a guy messaged me and ACCUSED me of being a man. I am a woman inside and out with slightly androgynous features and a buzzcut. I don't appreciate men accusing me of being drag/trans and making me feel ugly and worthless on a dating app. I reported him but I doubt OKC will do anything about it. DELETED!
Ignore the haters 5/5
I literally only keep this app installed for the update release notes.
Account banned with no explanation. 1/5
I’m convinced OkCupid is ran by a bunch of 13 year olds. My account was randomly banned without explanation — I was able to sign in one day and the next any device I tried to sign in from displayed an error about having trouble connecting. Really? If you’re going to ban someone, it would be nice to know what I was banned for? And I was sending or posting inappropriate pics, ironically, when the ban occurred I wasn’t even really messaging anyone so what caused the ban is beyond me. When you try to contact customer service, the childish behavior continues and they just ignore you. Oh and BTW its worth noting they block based on IP address, which means that even if YOU don’t DIRECTLY do anything but you have a friend that comes over, for example, and does something to get THEIR account blocked, YOUR account will be blocked as well as any other users that sign into OKCupid from any device that ever touches your network. When I first joined OKC a couple of years ago I didn’t understand why I had signed up one day and the next nothing worked and it turned out it was because at that apartment complex we had a shared WiFi network for all users so one person being banned, banned EVERYONE. I figured I’d read the terms of service agreement to see if I could track down any “violations” I might have unknowingly done and it basically just says that they monitor all account activity and reserve the right to ban profiles at their discretion — so basically after you spend a ton of time answering questions, swiping and typing up a profile they can delete you because it’s Wednesday. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know why that’s completely stupid on their part, less users means less matches and ironically when you read thru a lot of the lower star reviews on this app its due to the same people coming up over and over again (and I can tell you when they’re not the same users, a lot of them are fakes that steal photos from Instagram and create fake profiles so be careful out there).
So boring 2/5
All you ever see are the same faces you swiped left on the day before, and the day before that, and the day before that...
Login problems 2/5
Latest Apple update keeps telling me that I have no Internet connection. I can log into other sites and apps with no problem.
Miles is an issue 4/5
In the Puget Sound area, you can be 25 nautical miles away, but in terms of driving, it's either an hour ferry ride or drive because where I live, Seattle is across the water. Ferries are slow, due to control of beach erosion or you drive around.
It affects the results of the potential dates. They all live to far away. There has to be a way to narrow that down.
Doesn't work. 1/5
By Mg Ku
I even subscribed premium membership for 89.99$ quarterly and doesn't work. I have been donating them continuously for almost 2 years and now I cancelled the premium membership. Use other apps or you will regret. You have been warned.
Can't View/Sort by New Members: 2/5
Your app (and possibly your website in general) no longer has the ability to view/sort by newest members.
I get that it's a free app for the most part but why would you take features away?
I know for a fact that I was able to sort by newest members first at some point.
Don't mind party crashers, that's why this country is soft. I actually enjoyed the release notes. Keep it up.
Why was my account suspended? 2/5
Weird situation, I can't login to my account now which was suddenly suspended due to some term violations, hmm...
The sites not bad. But after you pick about 10 you start seeing the same. A lot of pretty asians here. Also bugs
Enough with the sarcastic release notes... 1/5
If someone is going to take the time to read the update notes, is it really too much to ask that you don't try to be so "clever" and just get to the point? Jeez... Get over yourself...
• Ok Clowns 4/5
By Time Squire-in-Training
M'lady says, and I rather agree, that you folks can keep "clownin' around", as long as you just keep including your app update details in your release notes. Yes, it's actually helpful and informative to a significant subset of us end-users and influencers; and no, the sarcasm isn't necessary or warranted. In fact, the sarcasm is a bit off-putting. But, you can even keep that up too, as you like; because it isn't as annoying as not reasonably including app update details in release notes. Also, m'lady has excellent taste in hats, thank you very much. Anyway, you might wish to get a move on and make the best possible use of your lead time, before the chief clown at FB directs his clownlings to release their integrated online dating/matching service. You do know that's coming down the pike, right? And if that isn't scary enough, oh, never mind. Good luck.
Impossible to STOP!! 1/5
Do not spend one dime or one second of your time on this piece of sh!t app!! They are banging the sh!t out of my credit card every month!!!!! I'm trying to turn everything off. I might cancel the credit card I've had since '85 to make it stop.
I got blacklisted and I wasn't even using my account.
I've met so many great people here! 5/5
By armchair philo
I'm about to move in with a partner I met on OKC. The app allows you to specifically define what you're looking for to a pretty great extent, even if you're not monogamous // even if you aren't looking for anything vaguely resembling traditional romance. Good stuff. I also quite like the redesign
Not just the app, but the product in general. Any sustained conversation seems to be a red flag for the people in charge to suspend your account. Unacceptable.
Not good 1/5
Way too many fake profiles
Love it .. 5/5
This app is amazing it's free and they match u with people by the question u answer .. it's like e Harmony but free lol ... they take the time to mach u with some one that likes the things u like .. but the down fall or I can be wrong because am really picky lol .. but it's hard to fine cute guys on this I found one lol .. but like I said am really picky 😂😅 so good luck lady's this app is 100% Worth the time 💕
Team is responsive, is quick to fix issues 5/5
Recently, the anonymous browsing feature disappeared from the app. I wrongfully assumed that it was purposefully removed, and left a 1 star review. But I was wrong. Within the day, it was back up and running.
Account deleted for no apparent reason 1/5
Some time in late 2015, my account disappeared out of the blue. I had several great conversations going, and to my knowledge had not broken any of the site rules. No response from OKC whatsoever, and when I try to create a new account it just gets deleted.
Use to be better. 3/5
I'm very disappointed that you can no longer filter by diet. Big loss for vegetarian singles.
Possibly one of the worst dating sites around
Voiceover accessible 1/5
By Jose Lomeli
Ok I like the concept of this app. But as a blind individual who uses this app it is very hard to navigate it. The tabs are not even labeled. I really hope they make this app accessible!
Artificially inflating female profile numbers by creating and allowing fake female profiles, this app is literally silicone Valley episode 10 season 3... bots/fakes to promote numbers and the latency of messages is wretched.
charge every one a mandatory small fee so accountability is accomplished. Then fine fake profiles and reward the reporters with free membership credits or even cash. The #1 commodity in the connection economy is trust.
By Davonn >:-)
Too many fake profiles and the very few decent women on there won't even talk to you. Another perfect example of why internet dating doesn't work for men
Sooooooo many fake women profiles. And there is no way the moderators don't know it's happening. I mean just absolute CLEARLY fake pages. And it's the same pattern. You can tell just by looking at a user name that it's a fake page. I'd rather get fewer results when I search from REAL women rather than a whole bunch of fakes mixed it. Come on moderators do something
It's alright met a couple girls 3/5
Been on the app on and off about 4 months. I'm on a few dating apps. I've liked several girls over time and messaged so many seemingly good matched with zero response. But. Right away I went on a couple dates with a teacher that didn't end up working out. I'm now dating a girl off and on that lives pretty close by. Not sure if it will go anywhere but who knows. Really glad I met her on here though. I just wonder why so many girls don't respond.. I'm a good looking guy with a decent job Christian with good morals. Either way I'd say it's def worth trying. Free version allows messaging so that's awesome.
Can't add photos from social media 2/5
Tried to add photos using FB and Instagram and it would not authorize use. I was logged in correctly but couldn't use.
A mixed bag, but not too useful 2/5
This app has some nice features, such as searching by characteristics (match percent, etc). However, I overwhelmingly get spam or otherwise not useful likes from others - the majority of my matches are in countries such as the Philippines or Indonesia. Would be a much better app without the spam.
Indentity Risk 1/5
This app hijacks your identity by not allowing you to delete it. I've "deleted" my account 25 times, and each time despite how it warns me I'm losing my profile forever, the page refreshes and I'm back in the midst of all the sexual harassment catered by this nightmare of a dating app
Getting worse 1/5
Let's start out with the boys. There are tons of them. Secondly. Since this app has came out more and more features are becoming pay to use. Come on OkCupid I'd see if you did that to new accounts but leave the old ones the way they were. And also now your limited in how many likes and dislikes you can do a day.
There is no refunds!!!! My account got suspended and when you get suspended you can't log into your account. I was paying every 6 months for 29.99 they just billed me and there is nothing I could do. I had to go to the bank and change my credit card number. I don't trust this app one bit. Also you can never get in touch with them which is even more sketchy
OK Improving 3/5
By Rohn Patel
Still app is little sluggish. Previous version had lot of bad request error failing to load profiles.
I also have a feeling that for unpaid version they only show limited number of matches.
Lots of fake profiles which I report as fake every week.
I like it 5/5
I like it
By Jason Hawke
What, you going to go to a mixer?
Bad just bad 1/5
They let people hack your account, then won't let you make a profile of your own. I'm completely locked out of the site for no reason! Horrific support too! Use 1 of their competitors!!! I promise you'll be better off.
Good app 5/5
Each update worse than last 1/5
First, the entire app broke, then it updated, and it's still unusable.
Not Safe!!!! Terrible! 1/5
Women, beware! I went on a date with a person who literally had several personalities and was violent. As soon as I got home, I wrote their customer service to block this person completely as he was creating profile after profile under aliases. The only thing that their customer service was able to say was that if i came across the man's profile again I should just block him. Well, don't your people review and approve the profiles before they are published? I understand as a community we are supposed to be vigilant but what are you doing to keep women safe?
So it's a priority now when you have been ousted on a public forum? Because the response I received didn't reflect this level of concern when i had sent my first email.
Pretty much every 'lady' on this dating site from Philippines is a lady boy and I think it makes it harder for the real women from there to find a guy on OkCupid.
Copy and paste? 2/5
By Bosie Moncrieff
When I'm abroad it would be very nice to be able to copy and paste foreign text into google translate. Or to have google translate integration. If there's a privacy concern fine, but I can copy and paste fine on the website version. The app is crippled in this respect.
Pay up or get no matches 1/5
Pay to get to the top or watch your profile wither away at the bottom. I got loads of matches on Tinder before the MMR update and the Premium Features, come here and get a few in a week then nothing at all, no visits, no likes, nothing. Waste of time, don't download
