This site is for singles who are ready to mingle but not ready to commit. It’s free, which is probably why Ok Cupid remains pretty high on the popularity list of traditional dating websites.
Lengthy profiles and questionnaires make this one of the more thorough options of late, which means more potential for some serious matches – or some serious liars.
Creating a profile, browsing singles and finding matches is free, but you’ll need to pony up a membership fee of about $35 per month to enjoy all the benefits, like emailing members.
Those who don’t actually want to date, but want their friends and family to get off their back, can pay their way to a faux girlfriend.
The true intentions (“trints”), which can range from “let’s talk” to “coffee” to “romance” to “hookup,” aren’t revealed unless there is a successful match.
