How to show everyone the real you.
Editing Your Profile
Editing your profile is easy: click the square green pencil icon next to what you want to edit.
For example, to edit your age, status, or location, go to your profile and click the square green pencil icon at the top of the page. A box should open for you to edit your basic information.
You can do likewise to edit your profile essays and your personal details.
Writing Profile Essays
Your profile essays show potential matches who you are and why they should date you. So express yourself! Make sure to be honest, specific, and fun. That way, matches who message you will have plenty to talk about.
If you don’t want to fill out a section, just leave it blank. We’ll leave it off your profile.
Managing Profile Photos
You can see all the photos you’ve uploaded by visiting your Photos page. Use this page to upload new photos, edit the captions for your photos, or delete photos.
Your photos must follow Staff Robot’s rules. The rules ensure that you will see real people, and they will see the real you.
- You must appear in the photo!
- No full nudity.
- No extreme closeups.
- No pets, cards, baby photos, artwork, images you’ve added yourself to, etc.
Please follow the rules! We’ll be sad if we have to delete your photos.
Reordering Your Photos
On your Photos page, you can use the “Manage your photos” panel on the right side of the screen to re-order your uploaded photos. Hover over the three strips next to the photo, click, and drag it to its new position.
Choosing Your Main Profile Photo
The image in the top-most slot is always your main profile photo. That’s the photo that appears when someone searches for you or sees you in their Visitor list.
To select another photo as your main profile photo, visit the Photos page. Click the three strips next to the new main profile photo and drag it to the top of the list. When the box turns green, that image becomes your main profile photo!
To remove a photo from OkCupid, go to your Photos page and click “Delete” next to the photo on the panel on the right.
