As i look at all of the people complaining, most of the complaints are 100% wrong. I have been on here 15 years (before it was called OKCupid!)
The thing that really sets them apart from every other site are the MATCHING QUESTIONS. In the beginning they merged with a pretty cool online question/quiz site. This gave them the ability to instantly match people with similar interests using an algorithm. If you answer enough question, it is surprisingly accurate. My two longest relationships were 99% matches.
I have discovered the algorithm starts to become more effective at about 300 questions. That seems like a lot at first, just make it a habit to answer 10 questions every time you log in and only answer questions you care about. Skip questions that aren't important. This makes the match percentage more reliable.
LOL... they should hire me as an online dating coach!
I found that a large percentage of people that hate online dating also hate traditional dating. Few people love it. Online dating is very similar to online job hunting, nobody loves that either. But we have to work, so we accept that it sucks. We also understand the power of the internet to pinpoint exactly what fits you best.
Dating apps are JUST TOOLS. If you pick the wrong tool for the job you cant really blame the tool. If you aren't using the tool correctly you arent going to get the expected results. I wonder if the people giving it 1 star also work for Match.com and POF.com, because the things they complain about are false.
