Major changes 1/5
It now costs $59.99 to even be able to see the people that like you. Once purchased the features not work to where you can see the people that like you. Customer service is slow at response. It’s unfortunate that companies are taking advantage of us being at home during Covid and charging high premiums.
**** terrible customer service. They do not even look into the problems that you describe. They dismiss it as you not paying for certain features. Took nearly 4 days to respond, now I’m going to have to wait another four days to hear back with my proof that I had to send them of my purchase. More of a headache than anything.
Waste of money 1/5
Don’t buy premium lol
Way overpriced 3/5
I was on OkC all throughout my early 20s and loved it for meeting friends and dates. Back then, free account holders could access all the important features, and A-list users got a few perks. Now though, the features we rely on for connection are behind huge paywalls that are way too expensive to be considered accessible. To not be able to see who likes me is a huge barrier. $30/month is crazy for a dating app.
Buggy mess 4/5
By Ayo Quis
App is a buggy mess. When I try to do anything it refreshes the whole app and start me all the way over. Can you guys please optimize this for iPhone
I felt ripped off from buying a subscription. 2/5
I think this is a great app in theory, but while I bought the paid subscription I barely had any likes. The day after the subscription ended, I had 9 likes. Now I have 24 likes. This is great, but I feel having the basic subscription hid my profile, or OkCupid hid the likes from me to begin with. It’s very weird.
I also feel it’s extremely overpriced. OkCupid’s basic monthly service subscription is $34.99 Tinder’s price is half of that per month. I can understand Tinder might have more of a user base, but I feel OkCupid’s service is way too much for my experience I wrote about above.
Again, I feel this could be a great dating site, but I feel very ripped off.
Not worth it 2/5
App is free, but you only get 10-15 free “likes” a day. Then you have to wait 12-14 hrs for it to reset to get more likes. If you want to upgrade to “premium” its $50 for one month. Thats insane! If you got for 3 or 6 months its less, but if i need 6 months on your aite, there is something wrong. Paying any more than $20 per month is a rip off.
This app tooo slow 1/5
App too much slow
Great app, I just wish she who like you was free
Atrocious UX 2/5
Years ago I met some great people though OKC, but now the app will remove someone from “likes you” if a finger so much as accidentally brushes UP on a profile on that screen. There’s no undo, no way to find them again. Seems incredibly counterproductive to throw people away like that. Defeats the purpose of the service and app. Again, there’s no undo if you make a mistake — and one you didn’t even know could happen. I’ve never seen this is over 30 years in software.
Good choices 5/5
I am actually very amazed that there is a better selection of beautiful people on this site. Male or female you will truly find the one you are looking for.
Over priced; Under deliver 1/5
By Adam W
Traffic has gone down for Ok Cupid as people flood to Tinder, Bumble and Hinge. Meanwhile Ok Cupid has started micro charging people: want to swipe more than 5 people per day? Upgrade to “plus”? Okay, you upgraded. Now want to see who viewed you? Upgrade to premium. Okay, you upgraded to premium. Want to see who is new on the app? Unlock for $1.99. And so on. While their numbers swindle they are strangling their possible growth by trying to wring as much profit out of their few users. No wonder I quit using this app. Ok Cupid you used to be innovative. I get it. Your corporate owners want to make a profit. But you won’t make a profit when the app is dead from bleeding users.
Now, it’s just a Tinder copy 2/5
All the “enhancements the past 1-2 yrs have made okc just a crappy version of Tinder. No more ability to search for users, doesn’t incentivize answering questions, and now I get a sea of people to look at who aren’t in my location range, aren’t in my age or religious demographics. I’d rather see “no results”, than to be excited by someone who’s 50 miles from where I live 😒
Also, as these changes have occurred, fewer and fewer people are using the platform, so the options are smaller and smaller 👎🏻
By abraham Link
Used to use this app frequently years ago met many quality females. The price point was very reasonable back then. But now the premium version for only one month is 44.99....Absolutely disgusting playing on peoples feelings to get more money I would not recommend this app to my worst enemy.
Nothing but scammers 1/5
This site was good years back but now it’s full of fake profiles and if they are real they are just scammers looking for cash. They should change the name of this site to OK Stupid
Disregard preferences 1/5
They completely disregard your preferences to make it seem like there are more available people.
Almost useless —has become a Tinder 2/5
I loved this site in 2012-2014. I met so many interesting people and had tons of matches and messages. Met someone for a nice relationship. Back on in 2017 and it didn’t seem as good - more privileges for those that paid which led me to believe those of us that did not weren’t getting the same algorithm. Nevertheless, I met some great people again and had another good relationship from this site. Sept 2018 it seems impossible to find any matches. No matter what I did to my search criteria there were less than a dozen - sometimes as few as 4 - that show up and maybe 1-2 of them are within the same continent. It seems OKCupid wants us to spend all our time on double take swiping left and right. If I’m going to do that I’ll sign up for tinder or bumble!
January 2021 - because I’ve invested time in the questions and truly believed in their algorithms in the past I’m still hanging on. I’ve even tried paying and still don’t feel it’s as good as it once was. I no longer recommend it to friends but in the past I endorsed it strongly.
ALL DATING APPS/SITES SHOULD DISAPPEAR 1/5
No one should have to pay to talk to people. We meet and talk to people everyday for free. Plus, facebook now offers a section for dating 100% free including people not in your friends list....just saying.
The only thing I have to say about this site is that I am the questions are really good but they only give you messages from certain people they don’t give you all your messages unless you are a paid member I don’t like that I think it’s kind of dishonest if you can offer a free app then you should tell them exactly what you’re getting for free and a limit what you see so you’re not getting all matched people at least not in preferences at least you’re I mean they just like I said they pick and choose who you see for possible matches and then they throw in a couple of decent ones of trying to Luer you in to buy the membership which again and there’s too many other sites that are for free that you can you know just get the first number and ask himself her all those questions it is nice to have it prior to though
I like everything about OkCupid
apart from the fact people don't reply chat very often
They goofed it up. 2/5
They're trying way too hard to make it like tinder, AKA they're removing so many features that made it the better app. Literally every update is just them taking away features that nobody wanted gone. Maybe I should just try real life.
Update: they made it even worse, HOLY SHNITZELS. It’s literally just Tinder with a match% now. The search/browse feature (which is essentially the LITERAL ONLY THING this app had going for it at this point) has been removed. Absolute garbage. Don’t waste your time, just go download tinder at this point. At least there’s more than 50 people in your area on it.
What happened? 1/5
Don’t ever read the manipulated Helpful reviews. This app has gone downhill. Agree with the other reviewers. Paywalls and roadblocks every where. Wouldn’t even mind paying if it wasn’t so expensive during a pandemic, when people are jobless and lonely. Pure greed. Used to be a fun app. Oh well, it will fold eventually to make room for others. Sad.
By Chad livingston III
This app is highway robbery. 55 dollars a month to see who likes you? And you get about 5 daily swipes, if even that.
I downloaded this app two years ago just to see what it would be like. At first it was unsatisfying I met one woman off the app and she had so much pain from her old relationships she couldn’t see who I was because of all th anger from the past. Needless to say that did not last, nor did it work for me. However one day I got an inbox from a very good looking woman who could hold a conversation without sex being the topic. (One it’s very rare for a woman to make the first move and two to be able to hold a conversation without it being up sex!). At that time I was leaving for north Carolina to visit my play mom. She and I spoke on the phone for that day and all night. I stayed with my play mom for one full week. She and I spoke from the time we woke up until we fell asleep on one another every night! Once I returned home we had our first date. It was amazing we kept it simple and it was perfect for the both of us! We continued to get to know one another without the stress of worrying about sex! Life has so much more to offer, and so does she! We met one another’s kids and it went really well!
By this time it was time for her to go on vacation with her family so many months had past and we were still going strong! I got together with her friend and planned to propose to her once she got back. So her friends and I had it all set up for her to go to her friends house for a “very important talk” once she was there I popped the question and she said yes! We are now happily married with seven children! So thank you OKCupid, something that started as just a new way for me to meet interesting women turned into me meeting my now wife! I would definitely say give it a chance you never know!
I hope this story makes someone smile and try something new!
No photo verification 2/5
Seriously, a lot of these profiles are fake as ****. I’d be much more willing to go premium if there was some kind of photo verification system like other apps now have, in order to weed out fake *****. I’m waiting. This is seriously a HUGE impact on score. I think at this point everyone is absolutely ******* TIRED of fake profiles.
Get about 10 or less than likes per 24 hours 1/5
Not only did they remove most of the good features but also this app is riddled with fake accounts, very focused on your wallet and they are really forward about letting you know if you don’t pay you don’t matter.
And the absolute worst part, you get around 8-10 likes and yes that’s regular likes, and it has a 22-23 hour cool down. Now compare that to tinder you get about 50 likes per 12 hours and a super like every 24 hours. Really is sad to see them ruin this app but don’t waist your time
one big Con 1/5
I was referred to the site by a podcast very real person, so I downloaded it. on the free version I saw that there was plenty of people in my area 25 miles away and in my age group. So i kept it on the free side for a few days, but i wanted to actually message these people because oddly i hadn’t seen any of these people on other sites tinder pof etc. $50 for one month is a ton of money but hey it’s cheaper than their 3 month and let’s just roll with it usually you can be refunded if the app can’t provide people.
However I was dead wrong. Once you pay for it all those people go away and the only people I see are passport people or international people. Interesting at first but then i expanded the age range and made all genders available within 50 miles and still the only people available are international. So it literally tricks you telling you there is tons of people around you when it’s free trying to get you to buy it, but once you do, there is nothing. I bet the international accounts are fake as well. Then if you have an iphone it says in their help text that they can not issue refunds because of something that apple prevents on their agreement. You get premium services but no one to chat with to make it actually worth time and money.
total scam artist. the app should be take down.
Terrible now, awesome before 1/5
OkCupid used to be my favorite app. I met my last BF here, and it was a wonderful relationship. I used to love it bc the app allowed for deeper connections vs bumble tinder hinge.
Since rejoining after a 1-2 year hiatus, the app is now terrible. I don’t mind paying for OKC if it had stayed the same experience but premium really isn’t worth it. I’m in a large city and it only gives me either no profiles (I’m a relatively young and attractive female) or people that are 50+ miles away that don’t match any of my basic preferences- how is this possible? Also the profiles that are shown are really really low quality.
As a previous huge fan, I’d say don’t bother with this app. Go to bumble tinder or hinge. It has become worse than those apps over the last year.
This app is so fake and phony. Sure there are real people on here but sooo many are fake. Not only that, I paid for the premium version...barely any likes as well as showing me the same profiles over and over again, but as soon as my premium expires, I suddenly have 14 likes and they’re all hidden because it wants you to pay for premium again. This is so fraudulent and clearly orchestrated by the app. It knows whenever your premium expires and then immediately matches you up with 10+ fake profiles so you’re tempted to pay for premium again to see who likes you. So shady.
By Pudgy Penguin
You can’t even see what questions the other person has answered anymore! Apparently that’s been removed as it’s been like that for awhile now. And forget about seeing who likes you as everything is behind a paywall $$$.
You’ll get a notification that someone likes you BUT it’s just a recycled profile of who’s already liked you the majority of the time, it’s a misleading way to try and get you to pay to see who likes you, don’t waste your money paying to see likes.
⚠️warning ⚠️ 1/5
By Raise your own zombi
Dont down load this ap they have put up pay walls and limit the amount of matches you can get in a day and removed the roll back function. Its not worth it.
Subscription upgrade is annoying but great app otherwise 3/5
It’s difficult to upgrade to premium account right away. Instead of an immediate upgrade and adding the difference, you wait until the end of the current subscription. But the app and features really help a lot.
It's a ripoff. 1/5
If you sign up for a membership on this site, it's guaranteed that it'll be the reason why you have no money to go on dates. Prices used to be reasonable and profiles used to be good. But after they've slowly destroyed their whole quirky schtick and all the useful features they had, it's worthless.
Be warned 2/5
Tone of bots are on there. If have your settings on anywhere, than get a hole bunch of people from Indonesia, Brazil, Philippines, and Argentina. I’ve spent a good 10-20mins on this app, about 95% of the people on there are bots and baiters.
Speed performance 5/5
You have to update the speed performance on this app it is very slow it’s very slow loading profiles and among other stuff it’s becoming very frustrating
Discovery is goneeeee 1/5
Discovery is gone, I can’t see any of the intros. THE APP IS BROKEN, now I’m officially deleting the app. I wouldn’t recommend this app to anyone at all! The app is just awful now!
Do not download this app 1/5
Super deceptive. Said I had 10+ likes then payed $50 to see them and they were all from foreign countries even though my range was 25 miles. They should be sued. Do not download this App. No one use it!
This site is a fraud. 1/5
Mostly girls looking for “Sugar Daddy’s”. Most of the rest are fake profiles and scammers. Constant fraudulent messages from site suggesting non existent “matches” and promoting paid upgrades. Then there are the constant bugs. This isn’t a dating site. It’s a con.
Love it! 5/5
I’ve been using it for six years and have absolutely no complaints
Can’t be discreet regrading your relationship status 1/5
Meeting people. So that is a plus. But not everyone in an ethical non monogamist relationship wants their co workers and neighbors to know. The only way to actually meet people and keep your relationship business private it to pay a ton of money due to the pic requirement. I might meet 90 people off of here and will never give it a 5 due to the requirement of showing everyone who gets on that app, that may know you, that you are in an open relationship. PS. Don’t get scammed like I did. Incognito mode is an additional fee on top of paying for a membership!!
What happened? 1/5
The UI for this app used to be gorgeous. Now it’s sloppy, confusing, and feels like I’m on a website back in 2006. I rejoined after a year or two away and I’m extremely disappointed. Every feature is hidden behind a paywall which seemingly has become more expensive for less features? Don’t waste your time, download a different app.
They delete reviews 1/5
By Apple is incompetent
When you pass on someone they don’t leave your likes. I’ve proven this over and over. I only swipe right to clear my likes and when I pass they’re still there. This is to get your money. You want to see who likes you right? Well it’s all these people you already swiped left on. This app is so bogus.
Discriminates based on sex 1/5
This app bans accounts of transgenders. Me and my transgender friends have been constantly having our accounts banned. It's illigel discrimination
Matches rely on random chance. 1/5
By Sci kid
Since you can see your likes and they can’t see you, the only way you’ll match is if you both happen to stumble across each other in the feeds and both swipe right. Kinda stupid. And I’m definitely never paying for premium, it’s way too expensive and I’ve seen too many stories about random bans on dating apps in general.
Great app 5/5
App is awesome
I just downloaded the app and it’s asking me to pay for premium to see the people who liked. Yea I think not, why should I have to pay to see the people who liked me, yea okay, never again.
Corporate Greed 3/5
The site has been watered down over the past three years; but it’s still my favorite dating app. I always meet the coolest people on okc. It would be better if you could make PHONE CALLS.
Poor Matches, Poor Customer Service & Preferences Don’t Matter. 1/5
I’m unsure of why preferences even exist if okcupid matches you with everyone regardless of what your preference is and the distance. The only do preferences and distance for paid members.
I was matched with people over 400 miles away despite my preference of 100 miles or less; matched with every single person regardless of my preference, and I even reached out to customer service as to why I was receiving email notifications after they were turned off, no response.
The app freezes up constantly to where I had to close out and come back multiple times in one session. The only fun thing about this was the questions. Customer support never responds to questions or concerns. Overall, this is a trash app and the quality of matches is very poor. If you want quality matches, quality dating app then stay away from this one.
Renewed subscription NOT work 1/5
I resubscribed in Apple and on app and the app doesn’t recognized and I emailed OKC only to get an automated message saying they are busy and it’s been a month now and NO FIX.
