Things I don’t like about the new system 3/5
I don’t like the new system in which a woman only sees my message if she first likes me.
I also don’t like that if I accidentally hit enter as I’m typing a message to someone new, my message gets sent and I have no way of finishing my message properly.
It’s okay 2/5
I have used the app on and off for a while now. I just recently started using it again and I think there is an issue with the app now. It keeps showing me the same set of men over and over. Even if I’ve liked them the keep coming up in my new matches. The parameters I set also aren’t working so I am being matched with people whose ages are way outside of anyone I would consider (mostly way younger), not sure what’s going on but I’m sad the app has gotten so much worse this time around.
Bugs to sort 1/5
Update 11/13: app consistently glitches in not letting update profile sections.
I like that OKC allows for lots of room for you to scribe about yourself if you want for it, and the matching questions (which aren’t seemingly as prioritized in the app as they used to be). That said, in comparison to other apps, it can be too intense to read when it’s an ever-scrolling profile of essays. Seems that they added more prompts to write about different topics, but matching questions are almost non-existent.
The platform was also better when you were matched or shown when others sent you a message after liking you. Now, sometimes it can be months later when they’re presented your profile in Quick Match that they’ll see you messaged.
Typical Match Group App 1/5
After writing this review on four apps, it mysteriously disappeared! All Match Group apps are garbage. They ban people for no reason, have people behind the scenes rating attractiveness and deliberately restricting people from seeing anyone other than what their rating is, and prevent people from just messaging each other regardless of who likes who.
Best Filters, Worst App. 1/5
Where Tinder leads in predatory nickel and dime behavior, this app succeeds in showing you no matches at all.
Constantly I’ve used it in my busy city and it acts as if there’s none, second I reload it though or wait an hour I have like four.
This app atleast seems like they want to make it good but I’ve seen their statistics and they are not too encouraging as a black male (apparently women generally find 80% of men below average and 20% above) I say this because black men have the least highest attractiveness ratings among every other race besides with black women. it’s even worse for asian men sadly.
Notification problem 5/5
Notifications won’t appear, sometimes. I have my notifications set up for lock screen and badge app icon. Sometimes I’ll get a Badger app icon, but nothing on my lock screen.
Review submitted by MC. 4/5
It it’s all
It is too expensive for the quality of people you have
WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE 1/5
I’ve been using OKC off and on for a few years now and I can say every time I reach out to customer service I NEVER get a response back... lots of fake profiles and they want you to pay for lots of extras. Wouldn’t recommend.
I found my WIFE using this app 5/5
I was in college living in Pennsylvania and I matched with my now wife who lived in South Carolina. We started talking on the phone for hours everyday, face timing (dates) and a few weeks later I went down to meet her for the first time. I stayed for a few days and we completely fell for each other. I switched to online classes, quit a job as we progressed in our relationship so we could be together and I went down to visit her 10 hours one way every other week or so. It was challenging but worth it. Two weekends ago we just got married in South Carolina and now live in Pennsylvania together. This may not be common but this App changed my entire life and allowed me to meet one of the most beautiful and caring woman who I now share the same last name with. Thank you OKCupid for allowing this to happen!
Best dating app 5/5
By far, this app crushes the competition.
Wasted Potential 1/5
By Kitty Kunt Kakes
You’re limited to 20 nearby people a day and then you’re sent to “recommended for you” which are people literally states away from you, making the app basically pointless unless you meet the love of your life in those 20 nearby swipes, good luck!
Awesome app 5/5
5 stars great app to meet new people and. Or spam
Needs iPad App 4/5
They’ve let their website go from being good to awful and the iPhone app is useless on the iPad
I’ve tried this app for approximately 17 hours, after setting up my account, I liked the profiles that matched mine, I wrote to 3 persons, a simple introduction and ending it by “message me back if interested” no disrespectful words the next thing I know my account was suspended for no reason, I’ve tried emailing them and you know what? You get an auto reply saying that they won’t answer emails about account suspensions. I don’t think you deserve even one star, this is not helping people you’re crushing them, funny I was thinking about a paid subscription, glad I dodged that one.
This app needs some tweaking 2/5
I am currently not having the best experience on your app. It glitches and kicks me out, sometimes I can’t tell when some one has messaged me and I also get matched with people that I specifically told the app not to math me with. I even get matches fro different states! So I would appreciate it if you could fix these issues. I think that if these issues are addressed I would be on this app more frequently because I do enjoy the way the profiles are handled.
Used to be HOT, now it’s NOT. 1/5
This site/app was once *the* dating app.
Since it was taken over by “The Match Group”, this has-been is in a desperate race to out-copy Tinder’s success AND FEATURES before the other apps.
They continue to remove features and functionality that previously made this app/site unique in the space, quickly distilling it down to another “swipe” app. It won’t be long now until it functions exactly like Tinder… which the same company owns.
When almost EVERYONE’s profile says “I can’t see likes, message me.” it’s your users deciding that OKC isn’t worth paying for. And there’s a reason for it: OKC is NOT GOOD.
OKC is changing the features so users get less for free and NEED to pay, NOT to make a better user experience. In developer comments they’ll constantly cite “Our tests show…” but what they leave out is “Our tests show… us how to get you to pay us more, while we give you less… but trust us.”
And listen, I get it: they’re in business to make money, it’s not a love charity. But be honest about it OKC.
ZERO innovation, copy-cat features and functionality, and a wholesale copy of Match’s tidal wave of FAKE profiles.
Just my opinion, but you’re better off elsewhere.
Second time on okc 5/5
Two previous times I met someone. Second one was quite serious, but ended after nine months. Thanks, okc!
Need help with my app 3/5
I have deleted and downloaded the app 5th time today and still I can’t open my messages and even access my profile settings
I like Cupid 5/5
I like your site better than any other I’ve tried. It’s easy to navigate through and easy to find people to talk to.
Great app but keeps deleting me 1/5
You keep delete if my account!!!!!! This is the fifth time!!!!!!!! I only had it for a day!!!!!!!!!
Utter garbage. Buggy with bad design 1/5
Why I must rate somebody on that stupid double take feature where I can’t skip people to get to their message that I’ve been sent is one of the stupidest things I have ever seen in an app. There are more outright other UI bugs as well.
If I wanted to swipe left or right on people, I’d be using tindr which I refuse because of it’s same stupidly shallow, buggy swipe left or right behavior. That was a scroll, not a swipe.
And anyone savvy enough should realize that the more questions you answer, the more people are going to get turned off by you before they get to know you. Anyone finding a relationship out of this is another bug of the product, not a feature. They profit off of you being here lonely and miserable not finding a relationship and the DoubleTake “feature” confirms this.
Really wish I didn’t spend the money on this app.
No internet connection message 1/5
I get a no internet connection try again message I have uninstalled and reinstalled and shut my device off and on again and nothing my device has connection and it’s not that old. What’s going on
Current version is buggy 4/5
By Joanne KV
Current version on iPhone 11 is buggy, cuts out in mid action or specifically while typing a sentence. Annoying.
Don’t waste your time. Endless questions would not allow you to set up your account. 1/5
I skipped at least 70 questions. It never ended. I quit.
Fantastic app, but the advertisements are super intrusive 1/5
The app is really great, but their ads are RIDICULOUSLY intrusive. They consume your whole screen and can’t be dismissed. Like, I get you guys have to make money, but this is just deplorable.
100% Fake Profiles 1/5
I love not being able to message someone I matched with because their inbox is “full” why tell me in the first place feelsbadman
Ok Cupid is a joke 1/5
This dating derive is a complete waste of time and money, they have no real contacts. And the ones do have are like lost souls with real hope of finding anyone. Believe you me, don’t waste your money!
Better than Tinder but still too pricey!/ No search feature!! 4/5
Why should we pay 16 dollar for a month of premium?! Can’t you make it 12 utmost? Don’t be too greedy please. I’ll change my rating if the prices stays the same. Think about the valuable good work you’re doing instead the most profit.
Please add a search feature between matches and likes based on gender, name and location of the person. Please!!! Lack of it sincerely makes your app very tedious to work with.
Too many scams 2/5
By scammmersnl and con
This website has a lot of fake profile
All fake accounts. 1/5
By Stone Coffin
Used to use this app, but now 99 percent of the users on it are fake. Simply just try and message anyone if you have a paid account - they never show up in your conversations, which is a tell-tale sign they are fake. Useless app at this point - OkCupid has gotten money hungry and forgot what made them money (and the point of this) in the first place. The 5 star reviews are bs.
why isn’t Iran on the list?!?!?
Bugs and issues 1/5
I used Okcupid maybe 3, 4 years ago and recently i thought about giving it another go. When trying to make a profile, it constantly rejects me on both email profile and facebook profile. This is something that should be fixed.
Left Swipe the same ppl over 20 times 1/5
I literally swipe left on the same ppl. And it’s not even like the go away for a long time and then reappear. They go right back in the rotation. And I know I’m not losing my mind because it’s a lot of people that have messaged me so I not only know their faces very well, I see the same message. Please correct this!!!!!! I complained about this same thing a couple of years ago and it was never corrected; IT HAS GOTTEN WORSTTTT! Or just please bring back the option of just being able to view people’s pages and message them directly like it was originally on this app. The reason given for this change was to keep spam out but what really needed to be corrected and still has not, is the fact that the wrong genders appear. That should be regulated.
Super lame 1/5
Keeps showing me the same people over and over who I’ve already swiped left/no on. I swiped left for a reason, no I won’t change my mind. Constantly recommending people of genders I have no interest in. Why???
Not great 2/5
It’s not totally free! In order to see a message you have buy the app. I had over 300 likes and couldn’t see any! Did not like it
Paid and didn’t unlock 2/5
I can’t really review the app because although it has a great concept I’ve yet to get to fully experience it. I paid my subscription to try it out for a month and it still hasn’t unlocked any of my likes 🤷🏾♀️ it wants me to pay again anytime I go to that particular section of the app. So at this point I guess I’ll dispute the charge and try another one. . .
Worse and worse and worse and worse. 1/5
Oh how the mighty have fallen. This was once one of the BEST dating apps. Now? Just a sad shell of its former self.
Before, you used to be able to search for just about anything. Now it’s one step above any other swipe app.
You used to be able to search by diet (for a vegan like me, that was huge). That’s gone.
You used to be able to see who visited you. That’s gone.
You used to be able to see who read your messages. That’s gone. Because now unless you like each other, if you send a blind message...POOF. You may never see that profile again.
You used to be able to search by question categories. That’s gone. Replaced now by agree, disagree, or find out. This is yet another change that makes NO SENSE. Why give us the option to answer THOUSANDS of question and then take away the means to sort through them??
Now they’re taking bookmarks away. While this is a change I get, it’s yet another oft-time useful feature being taken away.
Also, as a result of stripping all these features, I’ve noticed a significant drop in the number of profiles I see. Where once a search would yield a dozens of results, now it yields a handful. I’ve also noticed they recycle a lot of the profiles I swipe left on, likely because there’s very few people still on the site. It’s virtually a ghost town compared to what it used to be just a few years ago.
Seriously, whoever is running this company is either a complete idiot or is purposefully trying to run it to the ground.
Best dating app 5/5
Very inclusive, messaging is good. You’re able to do a lot for free and there are a range of people on this app. Highly recommend!
Terrible dating app 2/5
I was on OKC a couple of years ago and it was great. Had lots of very compatible matches and some super fun dates. My experience this time is completely different. I’ll start by saying I’m above-average attractive (some might say very attractive...not trying to brag...lol...just making a point. ), have good pics (the same type as before but updated), am fit with lots of interests, etc. The thing I liked about OKC initially is that there are tons of interesting questions for people to answer in their profile that aren’t just about personality. Get a good glimpse into what people are in to in general and how they feel about lots of topics but also their sense of humor and what they like sexually.
I’ve been on the site a week or so and right now have over 1500 people who “like” me in some hidden chamber that I have to pay to see. When I go through the “chosen for you” feed 90% are people not even remotely a match for me who haven’t aren’t from this “like you” group. On the rare occasion that I find someone I decide to “like” they have not “liked” me first. This wasn’t the case before. Why didn’t I end up in their feeds?
Leads me to believe OKC is just trying to force people to pay to see who likes them. I don’t mind paying for something of value but from what I’ve seen so far I can’t imagine there would be any reason to do that. There are constant pop up ads so they are already making money from my time on the site. Sadly I’m dumping OKC.
No longer available 5/5
Hello! I can’t update the app. It says “this app is no longer available. Developer deleted this app”. Why? The US applestore account
I get some and others I don’t and I have to manually pen the app but I don’t know when someone messaged me until I open it. Sometimes the notifications do work though.
Better before 2/5
By RMaker Fan
Honestly, I liked the app a lot better before it turned into swiping. If someone messages me, I want to see the message. I can choose whether to respond or not then. Now I have to swipe through other people to get to who messaged me. I hate having to make a quick swipe decision on someone without much information. I liked the app MUCH better before. If I wanted to swipe, I’d be on tinder.
I married the 10% compatibility man 4/5
A few years ago, my good friend roped me into creating an account. I started talking to a guy that said he has 10% compatibility. It was quite comical. I said to hell with the compatibility. A month later we were dating and 2 years later we were engaged. So I’m very glad that we found each other through this dating app.
Fraud and lack of support 1/5
My account was stolen: taken over, pic changed, but mostly my info. The fraudulent person changed both email and password. OkCupid has been non responsive in requests for help.
I wonder how many frauds are on this site?
Not good! Beware of non responsive company and fraudulent accounts!
Support doesn’t care 1/5
By Brandon McCurry
My account was hacked and lost control of my account. I contacted support and they don’t seem to care. Now I don’t know what someone may be posting about me. OkCupid support is garbage.
App suspends you for no reason. I’ve had a successful account, racking up to 5,000+ matches. All my pics & messages were appropriate. Then suddenly OkC decides to log me out of the app & suspend me.
I keep seeing someone who likes me in double take, clicking on their profile to read and say something with my swipe, and then when I hit submit it goes back to the profile (which didn’t happen before), AND when I try to match with them nothing happens and the profile has disappeared. Are these people who matched with me and then unmatched? Why are they popping up still?
