We like Ok Cupid's whole package — a huge user base, slick interface, the fact that it’s free — but its real strength lies in its robust matching algorithm.
To unlock features like incognito mode, read receipts, and a larger inbox, you can upgrade to a paid plan for per month, but we think the free version is more than enough to get started.
(Match.com’s user base is slightly older, too, which may indicate more people who are ready to settle down.) However, Match lacks the robust matching algorithm of Ok Cupid — it came in fourth place for good matches in our testing — and isn’t as streamlined as Tinder or Bumble. We also tested three other sites: e Harmony, Plenty of Fish, and Zoosk.
While we can’t recommend them, we hope we can save you the trouble of experiencing them yourself.
Zoosk took it one step further — you’ll pay a monthly subscription for low-quality matches.
Matchmaker and online dating expert Carmelia Ray points out that “as a user, you want to have the most selection and options.
It’s impossible to know exactly how many users are active on a given site or app (especially because mobile users aren’t reflected in Alexa data), but we’re definitely in the ballpark.
