And the more you explore, the better your dating experience becomes.
Zoosk's Smart Pick behavioral matchmaking engine learns about your dating preferences as you use it.
“Nobody wants to have to search through a bunch of profiles of straight folks who are not interested in you,” as Gay Christian Network executive director Justin Lee put it.
"This is usually the site folks go to after overwhelmed them.
"Brainiac sites like Ok Cupid, which tend toward math-based equations to find you romance, are good choices for people who think they fall outside the norm to some degree and want a geek who might get lost in the cracks of a bigger site," Masini says.
Ok Cupid isn't the best choice for people who are looking to get into a long-term relationship; the vast majority of users are under 30 and not necessarily looking for anything serious.
"If you're looking for a serious relationship, my advice is spend the money for a paid membership," Masini says.
"It shows commitment." But if you're looking for a casual, but active dating life without any of the cost of other dating sites, give Ok Cupid a try.
There have been complaints that Zoosk sometimes matches you with members that are not a geographic match.
