Unfortunately in my experience Ok Cupid has become a bit of a ghost town.Hinge finally won me over, becoming my favorite dating app in 2019.
Knowing very little about a person can also make initial messaging a lot more challenging.
Coffee Meets Bagel hopes to offer people better-quality matches by sending curated matches, or "bagels," each day at noon.
They suggest ice-breakers for first messages, and the profiles are more in-depth than Tinder.
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.
Profiles are a lot more in-depth than most online dating sites, and if you answer a seemingly endless series of questions (much like a personality test), they will spit out a reasonable Match/Enemy percentage ratio on profiles to help you gauge compatibility based on interests.
