About OkCupid

OkCupid is the fastest-growing online dating site. We use math to get you dates.
It’s extremely accurate, as long as (a) you’re honest, and (b) you know what you want. We are completely free.

Most other matching sites are just glorified personals services. Their “matching” systems are nonexistent or overly subjective. We don’t claim to evaluate you perfectly, but we do claim to find someone who claims to fulfill your claimed requirements, exactly.

Here’s a better look into our math-based matching system and how answering Match Questions relates to it.

OkCupid is made in New York City.
