- Free dating site with a point based matching system
- Matching based not only on dating potential, but also on a 'friend' or 'enemy' basis.
- Men are underrepresented
How does it work?
Setting up a profile takes about 30 seconds. Then, take personality quizzes and add pictures. You are able to take all different kinds of quizzes, including ones that you write how you want your potential match to answer. You then get matched with people in your area and you are free to email or chat them!
I have attached OkCupid's promotional video that explains the entire point-based algorithm!

What do the experts say?
I've personally used OkCupid for several years, and although I haven't met a lot of people through the site, those I have (and the friends I know on it) have been well-matched according to the mechanisms in place. A fun place to hang out creating quizzes and seeing how you rate with others. I've never had a problem finding other users in my area (no matter how small the demographic I've chosen) but it definitely caters to the quirkier among us. Therefore, Ok Cupid is highly recommended for singles looking for someone new and exciting, for those wanting an alternative relationship or merely as a fun way to pass time.
