OKCupid is an online dating website that has shown huge success and rapid growth in its relatively short existence. The site already has about three million users, making it one of the most popular dating sites in the world. With its cool, hip layout and large selection of advanced features, OKCupid is rapidly gaining ground on other major dating services such as PlentyOfFish. It is particularly popular with daters all over the United States, but also with people from other countries. Joining the site is free, and unlike other sites, this free membership gives you access to most of the available features. You can upgrade to the paid ‘A-List’ membership if you wish – this gives you a few handy extra privileges in addition to the standard free options. A nice feature is the ability to buy a membership upgrade as a gift for any other member on the site. This is useful if you want to improve communication with someone you’re interested in. Creating your profile is quick and easy. You first specify your gender, orientation (straight, gay, or bisexual) and status (single or ‘attached but looking for friends’). After that, you can go on to build up your profile with details of what you’re looking for, your interests, and generally what you’re about. And of course you can add photos to your profile. You can search by location, or alternatively you can view a list of the newest and most active members from around your country. This hot-list highlights people who are particularly well-matched to your own profile. The OKCupid website makes use of a lot of technologically advanced features, and for new users this can seem a little daunting at first. Don’t be put off - you will soon get to grips with these and have fun using them.
