While Ok Cupid is a free online dating site, users can pay (starting at .95 a month) to filter out people who are unattractive or overweight. There’s also a verification policy, meaning you’re slightly less likely to encounter weirdos than you might be on other sites.You can meet other members for dates that fit around your lifestyle (coffee mornings, lunch breaks and after work beverages).This essentially allows you to have one profile which is looking for dates, one for intimate encounters and – if you so decide – one which only communicates with people who are looking for serious relationships.
Premium members can receive SMS messages so they can keep up with what’s happening even when they’re on the move.
Each member is assigned one of four personality types – Explorer, Director, Negotiator, Builder – based on their responses to the matching questionnaire.
Chemistry describes the four types like this: As a member you receive a detailed breakdown of your personality type, how you relate to others, and what type is most compatible with you.
It works by asking users to take a special POF Relationship Chemistry Predictor test, which measures self-confidence, family-orientation, self-control, social dependency and “easygoingness.” You’re then matched to those most compatible to you.
Plentyoffish is modified frequently, new features appear regularly, and members are matched not only on what they say they’re looking for, but how they browse on Plentyoffish. Ok creates a unique online dating site environment by putting heavy emphasis on member participation.
