OkCupid basically has no clue whether a higher match percentage actually correlates with relationship success. OkCupids algorithm then assigns a numerical weight to each question that corresponds to your importance rating, and compares your answers to those of potential matches in a specified geographic area.
How does matching work on OkCupid?
Heres how it works: when you set up your profile, youre given a series of questions that you can elect to skip or answer, which then contribute to your match percentage with prospective matches (a.k.a. how compatible you are with someone). Youre only required to answer 15, but the average OkCupid user answers 50.
Are matches on OkCupid real?
No, OkCupid is not a scam. Men and women using OkCupid will sometimes get scam replies, but those replies are from people abusing the system rather than from OkCupid itself. Think about your approach. You write that you messaged 50 women.
How do I know if I matched with someone on OkCupid?
If you and another member Like each other, we always let you both know, for free. If they like you first: as soon as you Like their profile, youll see a pop-up telling you that you both Like each other! We also show you people who have Liked you and sent you an Intro in the intros section.
