Best dating hot free
One person I know went on the site, answered as many messages as she could manage, didn't bother writing a profile, found a guy with a 99pc match, and is still with him today.
As for me, well, I think my experience of the site was typical.
Even if that latter category sounds appealing to you, remember that people blithely (or desperately) looking for a squeeze between the sheets can put more earnest daters off.
OKC may have a high member count, but a lot of women find its barrage of sex requests and outright abuse an instant red flag. One female friend complained to me that she got so many messages per day (most saying “Heyyyy”) she felt that she “was at the centre of a toad knot”.
The other reason all these people are on OKC is, of course, that the site is free to join. Well, yes, in my experience of online dating, free is very definitely bad.
And it's here where you encounter the second major drawback. Free sites are packed full with spammers and scammers and people looking for casual sex.
It's has 30 million active users, with a million logging in every day.
I met one woman who was boring, one woman who almost bit my finger off over dessert, and the girlfriend I’m with today.
I got what I wanted from the site – although it wasn't always the most comfortable experience. It works, but you have to be willing to sort a lot of wheat from chaff.
As few people actually bother deleting their profile, part of the torment of using OKC is wondering whether the person you've messaged is ignoring you or simply met a lovely bloke six months ago.
Mind you, it’s not all bad – there are plenty of lovely women on there, and the site has a huge success rate in matching partners.
