OkCupid statistics may suggest “hookup” culture on their site/app


OkCupid routinely gathers member answers to quiz questions and publicizes their statistics.  One of the latest findings they share is on first date hookups:

46% of OkCupid users say they’d consider sleeping with someone on the first date, as opposed to the 40% who say they wouldn’t. (14% skipped the question).
(via OkCupid blog post, “
Why More People Are Having Sex on the First Date” on July 5, 2017)

This might imply that OkCupid is a “hookup” dating app, or one may argue that perhaps it just means that their members are open minded as to what they may be open to given certain circumstances.  Rewind though a few more months back, and OkCupid provides some clarity with more of these insights:

today only 43% of men and 17% of women say they enjoy meaningless sex; that’s compared to 48% of men and 27% of women in 2008. We also looked at the willingness of men and women to date someone just for the sex. In 2008, 55% of men and 29% of women would; nowadays, those numbers have dropped to 40% and 19% respectively.

What do you think about those statistics on OkCupid members, directly from OkCupid?

Besides comparing quiz answers, members on OkCupid can know if a fellow member is in it just for “casual sex”, as that is a profile option to mark, for types of relationships you are looking for.  So, in any case, OkCupid is a good site to try if that is your aim.

If you are looking for more substantive relationships, Friends Match Me is a good choice for you, and unlike OkCupid, it is totally free. (OkCupid used to be totally free.)  Friends Match Me provides the profile question “Type(s) of Relationships looking for:”, with the answers: Date, A Long Term Relationship, Marriage, Marriage & Children, Friend, Actvity Partner.  Join now at www.friendsmatchme.com, or download our free dating app on Google Play or the App Store – just search for “friendsmatchme”.
