If that interface is too chaotic for you, tap the “quickmatch” option, which restricts the results to photos only.
You can like people or message them in a similar fashion to Tinder, but messaging is your better bet: Users can see who has liked them only if they have upgraded to “A-list” status.
Ok Cupid has as many downsides as Tinder, and fewer positive ones, with the exception of learning a lot more about your potential dating partners.
You can also earn “beans” that allow for extra app functions, either by purchasing them outright, recommending the app to your friends, or logging in on consecutive days.
Props to Coffee Meets Bagel for having the cutest name of all the dating apps.
