Profile questions were left blank and a lot of the messages we received were generic “hey’s” that made it hard to tell if we were talking to a real person or a spambot.
Of the 114 messages we received, only five were from legitimate, interested users — 4 percent to OKCupid’s 12 percent.
That’s not great when you consider the 70-plus results OKCupid served up for us, but it was better than any other site we looked at.
Using a three-point scale (Bad, Mediocre, and Good), we categorized each message we received.
You’ll get the best deal if you pay for eight months of premium membership.
This membership boosts your profile in searches, lets you upload more pictures, and shows you if your messages were read or deleted.
A-List subscribers get read receipts, incognito mode, and a larger inbox.
There’s also a boost feature, which is supposed to ensure your profile gets seen by more users.
