Messages for dating sites
We like Ok Cupid's whole package — a huge user base, slick interface, the fact that it’s free — but its real strength lies in its robust matching algorithm.
It not only asks you questions about your personality, likes, and dislikes (“Do you think women have an obligation to keep their legs shaved?
Most hook up sites tell you when someone is live on their site.
Choose the appropriate time to send your email when she’s on.
” and “What do you spend a lot of time thinking about?
”) but also lets you rate how important a potential match’s answers to those same questions are.
It goes without saying that Ok Cupid has one of the better reputations of more popular free dating websites for having a wide variety of quality users.
Launched in 2015, the site has over 100,000 active members and approximate 5,000 verified members online.
Not into the idea of creating a full-blown dating profile? As opposed to a matching algorithm that evaluates your answers to various questions, Tinder is all about first impressions — your photos are the most prominent part of your profile.
And it’s easy to get started: upload a few snaps from your Facebook profile, add an optional bio, and start swiping through other users in your area.
I joined February 4th, around 7 AM, and received a total of one vote, two winks, and six messages.
The messages were all nice, although one user messaged me three times.
