Two of today’s most popular online dating platforms are OkCupid and Tinder, ringing in with nearly 50 million plus users combined. For those of you struggling to decide whether OkCupid or Tinder is better for you, here are a few differences between the the two apps that may help you make your decision.
1. Long Profiles vs. Short Profiles
OkCupid is quick to sign up for and only requires an email and password. The profile itself, however, takes a bit more time. From sign up, you move right into creating a bio about yourself—which many users choose to make longer and more detailed. After the bio is completed you can answer various statements that the site has come up with, such as: “What I’m Doing With My Life”, “I’m Really Good At”, “You Should Message Me If.”. OkCupid not only provides plenty of space to tell people who you are, but also gives you the choice to include your sexual orientation, height, build, relationship type, ethnicity, religion, etc.
2. Match Using Questions vs. Match By Swiping
On OkCupid you’re given the option to answer questions about yourself by choosing answers like yes, no, or sometimes. You choose the importance of the question and decide if it should be publicly seen by fellow users. And the questions come in all shapes and sizes. Some are politically motivated such as, “Are you the type of person to tell a homeless person to get a job?” or “Should immigrants be required to learn the official language of the country they’re living in?” While others are about your lifestyle such as, “Is your duty to your religion/God the most important thing in you life?” Then there are others that are more fun, such as, “Do you believe in dinosaurs?”
3. Paying for A-List vs. Tinder Plus
Both OkCupid and Tinder are free to use and require no sign up fee, but have a lot of features you need to pay for. OkCupid offers A-List which allows you to see who likes you, refine who you see, see when someone has read your messages, and also removes all the ads from the app. You can pay $9.99 for 1 month, or choose a 3 or 6 month option. There is also A-List Premium which offers essentially the same benefits as A-List Basic, but instead boosts your profile each day to be seen by more people and comes at a higher price.
