Tone wise, Ok Cupid is relentlessly upbeat with tongue in cheek terminology and a pleasant aura of “we don’t take this too seriously and neither should you.”Amenities: Like all of these apps, getting starting with Ok Cupid is quick and simple.All you need is an email address and a (hopefully charming) username and you’re reading to get creepin’.I can’t pretend making a profile doesn’t make me self-concious, but I will say that it’s better to put yourself out there in almost any way that to sit at home, re-watching Last week I created a dating profile on each of these sites, and rating apps geared (or accepting) of lesbians based on three criteria: style, amenities, and my personal experience.Ok Cupid Style: Ok Cupid’s color palette of pepto bismal pink and gender-normative blue isn’t the chicest choice, but it’s not ugly.Regular members can filter potentials based on a variety of criteria, which allows you to cast your net as wide or narrow as you like.Ok Cupid has more features, filters, and functions than any other dating app I’ve scene. Compatibility questions that allow you to see your “match %” with other usersb.

Since Tinder sees me ending up with a man, even though the thought of ending up with a man makes me internally scream, I spent 99% of the time pressing “x.” If you want to see more about someone, you can look at their very limited profile to see five pictures, a brief summary of how chill they are, and what “likes” you share. Unfortunately, Tinder operates under the oppressive, hetero-normative assumption that that person will be of the opposite sex.
I can’t imagine a less effective way of searching for my next girlfriend/victim. Tinder matched me with an overwhelming majority of almost 100% male matches, even though I set my preference to “women.” When Tinder did match me with a woman, there was no indication whatsoever whether that woman was gay or just also enjoyed .
Unfortunately, form comes at the the price of function.
