- How many of your matches above 90% were close to you in p...7 Answers
Unless Hawaii looks like the pub on Dickson Street, that dude didn't move anywhere. He may have plenty of luck on OKC, but he sure doesn't know how to work the privacy features on Instagram.
One of the neat things about OkCupid the ability to answer questions about your preferences. You answer what you prefer and you also answer what you would want a potential partner to prefer. With this data from all users, the site is able to calculate a "match percentage" for you and every other member. The users who have a low match percentage to you have opposing beliefs, it makes it easy to focus on people with higher match percentages - people you'll have better connections with.
You do have to give it time. I was a member of OkCupid for 3 years and received messages almost daily, all from people who weren't the right fit. But finally I did meet someone who was a great match, and 4 years later we're now happily married!
On the positive side, lots of people use it, so the dating pool is good. You can filter the people you search for (although not as well as if you pay for it), and the profiles potentially have a lot of information.
On the negative side, anyone on the site can message you unless specifically blocked. This wouldn't normally be a problem, except OkCupid does very little to regulate their users. You will have to wade through offensive messages, fake profiles, users obviously misrepresenting themselves, and solicitations for prostitution to find the few decent messages you get. Unfortunately, OkCupid doesn't do much at all when you report a user.
