OkCupid.com is a free online dating website that gets about a million viewers daily. It is completely free and has been called the Google of dating sites by reliable sources.
Profiles have a lot of checkable options as well as optional essay sections. If answered, the essay questions could give a lot of fun insight into who the person is and what they like or dislike. In an effort to get you to be as interactive on the site and offer as much information as possible, the site shows you pictures of people and says that in order to get more information about them you need to answer some questions. These questions are based around issues that might come up in relationships such as how often you need to communicate with your significant other, political beliefs and feelings about contraception. The site then asks what you would like your match to answer and if you think this question is at all relevant to finding you a match. We found these questions relevant in making a match, especially from a large pool of users. It becomes even further relevant when you get to answer whether you think this is relevant in finding you a match so that the system does not focus on issues that are less important to you like so many other dating sites do. With the data the site tells you whether you would be a good match, friend or enemy by percentage. When browsing profiles you can see how your answers match up to theirs to get to know more about them quickly. This is an excellent addition to this site.
The site has great site searches to find you local results who have recently signed in by age and relationship status. There are also several advanced search options based on selections you have ticked in your profile. Some of the more advanced search options are for premium members only but we found heaps of great searches with the basic search features. There is a high likelihood of success on this site in general without having to pay for it, especially since you can communicate for free.
The site has advanced features like mobile applications for both IPhone and Android. This makes it easy for members to stay connected on the go and really keep momentum going with interactions you make.
We highly recommend this site. You can go really far with the free options offered, it offers a lot of relevant matches, profiles and questions give good insight into users, it is easy to use and communication options are high quality. You should check out this site now, especially if you are below 40.
