Just sex dating
Profiles are a lot more in-depth than most online dating sites, and if you answer a seemingly endless series of questions (much like a personality test), they will spit out a reasonable Match/Enemy percentage ratio on profiles to help you gauge compatibility based on interests.
Changes in the last few years have made Ok Cupid a bit more like Tinder (both owned by the same company) focusing more on swiping and eliminating the ability to message a user without matching with them first.
They suggest ice-breakers for first messages, and the profiles are more in-depth than Tinder.
For people who like a little extra hand-holding, CMB isn't the worst option.
Knowing very little about a person can also make initial messaging a lot more challenging.
You'll need to wade through a sea of profiles, which makes it easy to pass over people you might have given a chance under different circumstances. I have friends who've met spouses through Ok Cupid. In fact, I've been on Ok Cupid, on and off, for roughly the last 11 years.
Happn matches you with people who are located nearby.
It's a cool concept and helpful for people who want to meet someone in a more organic manner.
I eventually disabled the app after receiving the following notification: "Show [match name] who's boss and break the ice today!
That said, I've never met a single person who actually uses the app.
After signing up, Happn showed me 68 people it said I had crossed paths with in the preceding three hours, though I hadn't left my apartment all day.
It's basically the first stop for those entering the dating world.
If you want to play the odds when it comes to online dating, you need to be swiping where everyone's swiping.
You have the option of displaying a lot of useful information that could be deal breakers: your political leanings, your religion, your alcohol consumption frequency or even your interest level in having children someday.
