Now that users primarily access Ok Cupid through mobile devices — the site saw mobile usage increase 20-fold in the past year — Yagan says it’s the perfect time to release the app.The app uses the same algorithms that power the website’s matching system.The site served people in Boston, San Francisco, Austin, New York City, Chicago, Washington, D. Users used the "date wizard" to provide basic demographic information about themselves and their preferred dates.

For those who want to try something different, this is worth a shot.

There is also a "Friendship Match" option which means that there is also the possibility to make a few new friends.

Speed dating and blind date organisers offer events which allow you to meet several like-minded singles at once.

The blind date dinner used to be the classic where 6-8 singles meet for dinner at an actual restaurant.

It’s a standalone app that works with preexisting Ok Cupid profiles, but daters don’t need an account to get started.

You simply select when you’re available, pick your favorite spot, and boom, the app pairs you up.

Slowdating.com's only purpose is that you have a great time before, during and after your speed dating evening.

Therefore, they allow 4 minutes for each encounter (instead of the usual 3-minutes talk) and 30 extra seconds to write your notes.

They do not know what their date will look like and are only given basic information including first name, age, gender, occupation, education, and ethnicity.
