OkCupid has several special features that aim to give users a full dating experience and find someone that they are compatible with in terms of views, hobbies, and interests.
Double Take is OkCupid's matching feature. It's a roulette-type matching where you need to either swipe left if you're not interested or swipe right if you are.
See Who You Like
You can keep track of the members you like by going to the list of 'Who You Like' found on the 'Likes' tab. You can freely message these users, and they will see on Double Take that you messaged them.
See Who Likes You
You can view who likes you on the 'Likes' tab. However, this feature is only for OkCupid premium members.
Boost is an add-on feature where your OkCupid profile gets highlighted. Boosted OkCupid profiles are shown more frequently on other members' Double Take suggestions and OkCupid search.
OkCupid also offers Super Boost that increases your chances of likes with an extended boost! Available in 12, 6, and 3 hours.
OkCupid has a blog that publishes tips on how you can maximize the OkCupid app and dating platform. They also have articles about helpful dating tips and advice, so you can get the most out of your OkCupid search for a lifetime partner.
Since OKCupid is a big dating platform, you may get overwhelmed by the sheer volume of matches you get. With Stacks, you can efficiently categorize them. You can group them according to options like "Nearby," "Online," "Recommended," and the "Question Pros" or those who answered most of OKCupid's compatibility questions.
I'm Vaccinated Profile Badge
For those who are feeling conscious about safety, OKCupid added a special feature where members can add an "I'm Vaccinated" badge on their profiles. This feature is for all members who had at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine.
60 New Identity Options For LGBTQ Users
OkCupid added over 60 new options for its LGBTQ members to better express who they are and how they identify. Members can also filter other profiles according to their identities, ensuring they find their most compatible matches. Some of the newly available options include "Top", "Femme", "Bear", "Otter", "Twink", "Drag Queen" and "Versatile."
