However, I found the app confusing to use, with too many features and a lot of gimmicks.I shouldn't have to look up online tutorials to figure out how to use a dating app. I was also disappointed in the notifications, which I found too pushy.
Unfortunately in my experience Ok Cupid has become a bit of a ghost town.You can still send a message -- it just won't show up in the recipient's inbox unless you match.Because who doesn't enjoy sending a thoughtful message to someone who might never see it?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.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.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.Happn matches you with people who are located nearby.It's a cool concept and helpful for people who want to meet someone in a more organic manner.
