Free relationship sites
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.
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.
Because of this, I believe there is true honesty on the site by those who take the time to complete their profiles in detail and the compatibility test.
Also because women must message first, Bumble tends to weed out the slightly more insecure males.
However the rate of overly confident males tends to be higher than I've seen on other apps.
However, Ok Cupid has pointed out that these changes did help lower the number of offensive messages people received, which might be a worthwhile trade-off.
Unfortunately in my experience Ok Cupid has become a bit of a ghost town.
