Is OkCupid really free?

Yes! Basic accounts on OkCupid are entirely free, forever, but we do have a few premium feature offerings. We have designed the site so that a free account does not hinder your use of the site. The paid features are great to have, but not completely necessary for using the site. 

  • Messaging on OkCupid is completely free. You can see who has messaged you in DoubleTake or from their full profile if you find them elsewhere on OkCupid. If you've mutually liked each other, their messages will move to the conversations page.
  • We always let you see your mutual likes for free. You can see your mutual likes at the top of the Who You Like page (star icon on the app), or in the Conversations page if you've messaged each other.
