A lot of people, including me, turned to online dating, and Ok Cupid was all the rage.

As I was serious about finding someone, I uploaded a lot of pictures of myself, had a very thorough profile, and received a lot of attention. Eventually, it got to be too much and I closed my profile.

Casual Kiss is full of scammers, so that is a website I suggest avoiding.

Ok Cupid is renowned for having a wide variety of users, although I received more messages and views on Plentyof Fish.

When someone says online dating, one of the first sites that comes to mind is Ok Cupid.

It is estimated that there are about 30 million total users, with roughly 1 million unique users logging in every day.

And if you’re serious about finding someone, make sure you don’t come across as too aggressive. No means no, and you’re not going to be able to ‘convince’ anyone to fall in love with you, and reacting with anger and threats when someone isn’t interested won’t help you. Watch for any red flags, such as disregarding your boundaries and not respecting your feelings.

When going to meet someone in person, it helps to suggest you both bring along a friend.

Continuing to be horrible did not dissuade any of them.

There are also instances of men, believing women ‘have it easy’ on dating websites, setting up fake profiles and being shocked by the messages they receive.

In total, I received 11 messages with 218 visitors. A few were a little more forward, and two were straight-up aggressive.

Despite Casual Kiss being kind of scammy, with only 3000 monthly visitors, I decided to give it a try all the same – and I wasn’t entirely disappointed.

This may help relieve the anxiety of the other person, plus it’s a safeguard for you both in case something happens.
