The best dating apps for working professionals who need efficiency
If you really want to cut through the noise and find matches quickly, OkCupid is the app to use. OkCupid is known for asking detailed questions and connecting people through shared values. As with most dating apps, you create a profile by uploading photos and answering a few questions. What makes OkCupid stand out is its ability to prioritize values or interests and filter out those that don’t match. For example, the app asks you, “Would you date someone who doesn’t vote?” and then allows you to rate the importance of this issue from “small” to “very”.
Once you answer the question, the algorithm will go to work and provide you with users who match your preferences. The app even generates a “match score” for each user so you can immediately see how compatible you are with a given date based on the questions you’ve answered. Another unique aspect of OkCupid is that you don’t have to “match” with a user to message, you can chat with anyone.
Speaking of variety and detail, OkCupid was the first dating app to offer dozens of sexual orientation and gender options, and you can even meet new friends on the app.
This app is perfect if you don’t want to spend time Facetiming or going on dates just to ask questions about your abusers. OkCupid allows you to weed out the abusers to see if the relationship blossoms from there. Plus, when you pay for a premium subscription, you can see other users who have already liked you, send superlikes, and publicly see matches answer questions. All of these features save even more of the little time you probably have for dating.
