OkCupid sometimes abbreviated as OKC  is an American-based, internationally operating online dating , friendship, and social networking website that features multiple-choice questions in order to match members. It is supported by advertisements, by paying users who do not see ads, and by selling user data for data mining. The site supports multiple modes of communication, including instant messages and emails. OkCupid was listed in Time magazine's Top 10 dating websites.
Let's just cut the mushy bullshit and get straight to the point: Online dating can truly suck. Don't get me wrong — the help is seriously great when you start to feel like you're ForeverAlone, but the entire process of creating a dating profile and dealing with less than ideal matches can be cumbersome. You're forced to answer fake "deep" questions that everyone lies about anyway, deal with creepy dudes and girls who think it's cute to terrorize your inbox, and navigate sites that just do not have what you're looking for. Here's the thing though: OkCupid is about to be your new best friend. Use this guide to figure it out.
We respect your privacy. All email addresses you provide will be used just for sending this story. To pay or not to pay: That is the question. If your goal is to get a date—or find a mate—are you better off with one type over the other?
If you're not sure about which dating site you should sign up for AKA spend money on or which app to download, testing them out for free first is a great idea. But for some dating apps and sites, the free version may actually be all these need. Online dating is hard, y'all — but so is dating in person. Basically, dating is online the worst.
