I’m not going to lie. I was excited to try out the popular dating site OKCupid (also commonly referred to as “okay cupid”) even though it was another mainstream dating site. Having had heard of it before, I was anxious to see what it was all about. I had heard about the multiple questions that you have to answer in order to find the most compatible matches. I didn’t mind any of that. In fact, it sounded good in theory, so I took a closer look. I got myself an OKCupid login and was ready to take on this new dating site for all that it was worth. Read my review below and I will let you know what I found.
My OKcupid Website Search For Girls
You don’t have to do a whole of investigating to find out if many of these dating sites are worth the time and money. You can often find out a lot about a site’s practices by checking their terms and conditions. Many of their scamming activities are revealed here and they hope that you will pass them by and enter the site oblivious of what they do to snag you. One of the main problems I found in the terms of OkCupid was the fact that they reuse your profile data. I don’t like this one bit. If you’re not familiar with what this means, this means that they use your picture and info to fool other people on other dating sites they own.
They basically blast your profile out across a network of dating websites that are owned by the parent company that operates OKCupid. If they use your profile to fool other people, it’s obvious that they use other people’s profiles in order to fool you. This is why the site looks so realistic when you browse through the profiles. There are literally millions of them.
However, which of them are real users and which are just pictures of random people that might not even be a member of that site? I know it sounds confusing but it’s really not. So, let’s say for example you join OKcupid. They can put your profile photo and anything else that you’ve shared online in any of their other sites. You’ll have no idea whether your profile is being shown on some random site that you don’t approve of being associated with. The short story is that you have already approved because you accepted the terms and conditions.
OKCupid Sign In Process
The main page of OKCupid has no pictures and no frills. It asks a simple question to get you started. Are you straight or gay and what is your gender? Once you answer that question, you can log in using your Facebook account on the next page or you can sign up manually. Just enter your birth date, country, zip code and valid e-mail address. After that, you just choose a username and password and you can start creating your profile. You start with the basics first and it gets more detailed as it goes along. You’re now one of okcupids newest members and you can do whatever the heck you want! Once you are an active member you can then utilize what’s known as the “okcupid login instantly” function. This allows you to sign in literally in less than one second.
I got my hopes up a little when I started receiving messages. First of all, there were a lot of them so I figured some of them must be real. Also, they were well structured. Many of the messages actually seemed genuine. OkCupid obviously puts a lot of effort into making themselves look legit. This is where they snag you.
Everything has been free up to this point. Then you start seeing these messages that seem like they are being received from real women. However, you can’t respond to them unless you pay for a membership. Well, I went ahead and paid for one and my fears were realized. Most of them didn’t even respond back to me. The girls that were messaging me, most of them ended up going silent and I have to say that I’m not all that surprised given the nature of the 111 complaints that have been posted on Sitejabber and ConsumerAffairs.
I did end up messaging with some real women so that is more than I can say for a lot of these types of sites. A couple of them that responded just seemed like more computer generated messages. It wasn’t until I browsed the site and started sending messages that I found any real women to talk to. I ended up messaging with only 3 real women and one of them shouldn’t even count because it didn’t take long for her to start ignoring me. Needless to say, I never had a phone call with any member of this site. It just didn’t work for me. For some reason, I simply couldn’t connect with anyone that was will to have a high-quality phone conversation with me. That’s not to say that I didn’t have one at all.
Calls w/ OKcupid Members and Meeting Up
The women that I was messaging were very aloof and acted like they were too cool to talk to me. They would bug me when I wouldn’t answer them, then act elusive when I did. They were either playing games or they were employees posing as users on the site. Either way, my experience was not a good one. I was excited to talk to real women, but considering the amount of time I spent on the site, there should have been much more to speak about.
How To Delete OkCupid Profile
Most people don’t have a clue how to delete their okcupid account. However, once you decide that this mainstream dating site is no good, you’ll want to cancel your membership and delete your profile. This is quite common practice and I must say that I don’t blame you for wanting to do this. Here’s how you can delete the account for good. Step one is to log into your active account. Find the “Settings” button and click on it. Next, you’re going to want to click on the “My Account” tab. Read the “What you need to know” section of this page and then confirm that you want to delete your account. It’s really as simple as that!
Contact The Company
In the event that you need to contact OKcupid directly, you have a few options. It really depends on why you are contacting them. If you’re having account issues, then I suggest visiting this page (https://www.okcupid.com/feedback). However, if you need help with billing, then you need to log into your account and visit the setting page for direct communication info. This will vary depending on the subscription purchased.
Conclusion: OKCupid Is Not As Great As Society Thinks. You (Most Likely) Will NOT Get Laid
OKCupid is a massive site, so I am not ruling out the possibility that you will have better luck than I did. I had heard about this site so much that I was sure that I was going to get some real results. The sad truth is that it is just another site that tries to deceive you. They want you to pay money when it’s not worth the money spent. I wouldn’t recommend this site and you should avoid the frustration, but at least there is a small chance to talk to a real girl. I guess that’s something.
What sites would you recommend, if not OKcupid?
Honestly, there are a ton of dating sites that exist and I can only confidently recommend less than a dozen of them if you want real results. Spending time joining over saturated mainstream dating sites isn’t going to get you laid. It’s only going to cost you money and cause a ton of frustration. I suggest that you check out my homepage in its entirety. You will then see all that sites that I recommend you join.
Lastly, I feel like I have an obligation as a dating expert to let you know that people have been scammed out of a lot of money on this site. There are far too many OkCupid fake profiles and scam members that you don’t even want to consider joining this site. Someone was scammed $70,000 in one incident that was reported a while back. There are many that don’t get reported too. Use your best judgment if you plan on joining okcupid.com.
Frequently Asked Questions
I’ve been getting a lot of okay cupid questions lately so I thought it was only appropriate for me to answer some of the frequent questions that I’ve had come in via email.
Can I get a free OkCupid login or does it cost money? Yes, you can get a free login to this website if you truly want to sign up. It’s totally free but likely a huge waste of your time.
Are all the Reddit okcupid stories that are posted all real? I don’t know if the stories on Reddit about okcupid are true. It’s too difficult to determine really. Most of the huge forum-style sites have a lot of liars on them.
Is this site better than pof.comcom? To be completely honest, I think both sites suck big time. I wouldn’t recommend joining either of them, to be frank.
Do the mobile site and app work better on iPhone or Android? The okc mobile site and app work well on almost any kind of smartphone. The problem is whether or not can help you find someone to fuck. For the more part, I’d say any mobile dating app is useless if it doesn’t lead to banging.
