I'm starting to think the whole online dating process is almost hopeless. An incredibly high percentage of the women I meet don't look very much like their photos. Some look 15 years older. There are a few a lunatics too. On the other hand, I did have a couple of "near misses" where we were almost, but not quite compatible. BUT, here's the important part: the mediocre rating that I give to okcupid is exactly the same as what I give to Match.com, which I finally left. The bottom line is that ALL these sites are slow, frustrating, and don't have very good batting averages. So I used to spend a lot of money getting almost nowhere, but now I'm getting almost nowhere for free. So I guess that's an improvement, huh? If you get easily frustrated and impatient, don't use any dating site, free or paid, because they'll all irritate you. If you do have the patience, this one is a little better than average, and it's FREE. By the way, I just gave the same review to POF.
It's just barely okay.
It's isn't any better than just barely okay.
