What does love mean to you?

by - 11/08/2018

Companionship, unconditional, uninhibited or compromise? If you ask me, it's a bit of everything. Lucky are those who get a perfect balance of all this and more. But the bitter truth is that it's so hard to find. And it's the same all over the world! Lest how come there are so many sitcoms dedicated to finding the 'one'?

If you are a girl, I bet you have grown up watching SATC. I can even vouch that guys too snuck in some episodes then and now. These smart, successful and independent women are on a hunt for their soulmates. Remember that episode where Miranda opts for a speed dating service to land a date for herself? They get 8 minutes to introduce each other. Is finding a date that simple? Like can you really know someone that quick and then go out? If you ask me, it takes years. But yeah, a spark can get ignited even on the first meet. Believe me, I am a total sucker for 'Love at first sight' (I am a victim in fact 😆). But love depends on so many other parameters in order to survive. That is why "Çupids" exist! They can be in the form of common friends, family or even a dating App!
So why do we even need to go for online dating or a Dating App? Are those days long gone when you expected to meet someone while picking up newspaper from the kiosk or while sitting alone at a bar? Well because my friend, relationships are so much more than selfies. There are so many compatibility factors that need to match rather than just what meets the eye. But then, there are so many dating apps already. Somehow not all of them promise healthy relationships...some people whom you stumble upon are desperate for marriage while some are ready for short flings.. which one is perfect for you?

There is so much to relationships than what meets the eye. I mean I can get attracted to someone's chiseled looks but being messy is a major deal breaker for me. Also if he doesn't like to travel and watches too much television, I would say goodbye right from the start! OkCupid matches what matters.

OkCupid is the most widely recognized dating app in the world. Headquarters in New York, it was founded way back in 2004. Since then it is present in over 113 countries and has set up more than 57,000,000 dates. It's definitely the best dating app India can offer. So what sets OkCupid different from others?

Have you ever wondered why family fix ups don't work most of the time? It's because the meeting is set on a very superficial  note (like family ties or good looks or similar backgrounds). Or simply because an ideal prospective daughter in law may not be your type of wife! This is why OkCupid is more successful over others. It employs sophisticated algorithms to understand users' personality and preferences more deeply to suggest matches. It truly advocates #substanceoverselfies.

How does this dating App work?

OkCupid is available on IOS and Android. You just download the App and bam! You are one step closer to serious dating! It's a free app.
You start by logging in and entering your details. From name, sex, age, location, sexual preferences and all, you slowly fill details about yourself. You can upload pictures too.

Then comes a set of rather important questions. For some religion may be huge while for others it may be politics. There are 15 questions which you need to answer. It would contain your answer as well as how important it is for your prospective partner.

Things like penchant to travel and inability to co reside with a messy person are deal makers/ breakers for me respectively. I am sure a lot of you can connect.
After you complete answering, the smart algorithm shows you a list of prospective companions, based on match. You can either like them or can move on to the next.

Why should you use OKCupid?
It's safe. OkCupid has a strong moderation team for reviewing flagged users. Also you can hide your profile from someone you don't like or even go into Incognito mode. It respects your privacy.

It's very focused: Depending on your preferences, it helps you set up with like minded people which has the probability of culminating into a long term, meaning relationship.

Community of inclusivity: It's an inclusive community where people can express themselves openly and authentically. Also it's the only dating app that makes you take a pledge of kindness and foster respectfulness.

Smart technology: Last but not the least, its algorithms are really smart. There are greater chances of connecting with like minded individuals/ preferences than any other mode because of the myriads of questions that aim to dissect you and your prospective partner.
