OKCupid search is a powerful way to find dating partners.  Searching OKCupid not only allows you to query the dating system based on important search criteria but also allows you to filter your results to find the perfect match.

While the system is good for showing you potential matches, sometimes you and only you know the precise type of man or woman you are seeking. Utilizing the search features available with OKC can allow you to specify every single attribute you want to find in someone.

Users who already have an OKCupid account can start searching for love right away. If you need an account you can sign up for OKCupid and start searching instantly.

Tips For Searching OKCupid

Remember, you are looking for someone that matches you! Do not be afraid to be picky. With that said, if you do not have any luck with your first search query, try adjusting the filters. Lets say you have a preference for someone with red hair, so you search through everyone with red hair and do not find a match. That does not mean your match is not out there. He or she probably is, but they might have a different hair color.

Is Distance A Factor?

You can also try adjusting the mile radius too. This will bring up even more people who match your search criteria. We do live in modern times with abundant means of transportation. You are not stuck dating someone who lives within 20 miles of your house. The perfect match could literally be in the next town or city.

Always experiment with OKCupid Search. You never know who you might discover or where they might be.
