Okc or N (ot)-Okc?

Okc or N (ot)-Okc?

Before I'm starting this myTake I want to say that this is just my opinion + from my experience.

A while ago my friend started with Tinder and told me I should try a dating app. I was open to try a dating app but not Tinder. So we both started using okcupid. Both for different reasons: he really wants to find a girlfriend and I was just curious and sceptical. I've been using it since January and I'm still not very convinced. The hardest part for me was to come up with a good profile. Like what do I want people to know about me ? What I don't get is, when you get a message you both like each other and you send a first message, you sometimes get ignored.

In the meantime my friend doesn't have many visits on his profile and only has a like from me. It's really important to him and he talks about it every day. I tried to tell him he should change his picture and profile (he explained like everything in it, day routine, etc).

"Bad experiences" I had:

- (old) Horny pervs

- Douchebags (guys who just talk to you because of a bet)

- Buggy app

The good aspects for me:

- You can fill in questions and see how much % match you have based on questions you filled in. Although most people don't look at it and go for the looks.

- Just talking to strangers and discovering new things (culture related, etc.).

- You can't send pics, with other apps I had the problem, guys sent d*pics without asking.

Conclusions for me:

- There really are some reallly nice people. Although I still think it's better to meet people in real life.

- After many conversations I've found some people to game with and maybe one person who could be "more".

- It's still superficial.

- Don't use cheesy pick up lines. (I'm really allergic to that)

- Don't make your profile too long/ don't go too much into detail.

- Better 1 like from a person who is really compatible / nice than 260 likes from people who only want to have sex with you.

- If you are a girl don't be afraid to take initiative. Don't wait, take action.

AND last but not least, don't take it too seriously. If someone doesn't reply to a message don't even feel bad about it. It's their loss anyways and you are so much more than that ! :)
