The beauty of the internet has allowed a whole new layer of dating to sprout up, dating apps being a major example.

When it comes to dating itself, how could you choose between OkCupid and Match? Don’t worry, we’ve done that research for you!

OkCupid OkCupid has been around for over 10 years now and is an enormous success. The site has over 40 million active users, so it’s no wonder that they have amassed a huge database of social data. This social data makes it easy to see how compatible you are with someone and to personalize your experience when on the site.

The site is well designed, giving you a feel of a personal introduction even when you are on the site anonymously. The social functions of the site are brilliant as well; in fact, 1 in 3 OkCupid members are there because of the mobile app.

One thing to note about OkCupid is how addictive it is. You might see 20 pictures of the same person, be okay with it, and then see the same person again and get hooked. The balance they have with privacy and making sure you only see other potential dates is really well thought out.

Match Match takes a very conservative approach to dating, as most dating sites do. The main components of Match are the site’s compatibility tests.
