Matches are identified by your profile and your responses to a series of fun questions generated by other members.
Each match question is made up of four parts:the question, the answers you’re willing to accept from your matches, a rating of how important the answer is to you, and an optional explanation of your response.
After a short hiatus from the world of online dating (because it sucks, you guys), I'm back with more tales of hilarity. There is no point in lying on your profile about things that are obvious within five minutes of meeting you in person. Why contact me and bother discussing meeting up and dating if you live two thousand miles away? It's a tad creepy when we've exchanged three messages, tops, and you're calling me "baby" and talking about moving to my area because "nothing's keeping me here anyway".
The next step is to meet up, have lunch together, enjoy a coffee or an after-work drink and see if you click.The site uses your responses – and a math-based matching system – to pair you with compatible dates, promising a high accuracy rate as long as you know what you want and are honest about it. Ok Cupid was founded by Chris Coyne, Sam Yagan, Max Krohn, and Christian Rudder, four men with impressive resumes.In addition to Ok Cupid, Coyne oversaw the development of The and Spark Notes.com, two hugely popular websites that have received accolades from publications like The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Newsweek.The more questions you answer, the smarter Ok Cupid gets at recommending matches for you.When viewing another user’s profile, click the “The Two Of Us” tab to compare your match question answers to their answers. If they didn’t give an answer you were looking for, their answer appears in pink.
