How do OkCupid recommendations work?
OkCupid recommends completing as many of these as possible to maximize your matches. Once thats done, you can go ahead and start liking other daters and see who you match with. Like most other apps, OkCupids runs on a mutual-like system, meaning two singles have to like each other before they can talk.
Does OkCupid have search?
OkCupid Discovery puts you in control, letting you search nearly 20,000 interests and passions to find people who enjoy the same things you do. When you search for a specific interest, OkCupid Discovery scans for that interest in user profiles that already fit your match criteria.
