Okcupid VS. Tinder: Hookups or Relationship

The biggest difference between OkCupid and Tinder is the approaches they take on when it comes to finding your matches.

On OkCupid, you’re given the option to answer questions about yourself by choosing answers like yes, no, or sometimes. You can meet people that are indeed similar to you and “match” your preferences. On tinder however, you only have the option to swipe right or left on people. On OkCupid, Tinder is full of every kind of person looking for every kind of relationship. Compared to OkCupid, it’s more like meeting someone randomly in person because you don’t have a bunch of background knowledge about inflated “compatibility” measures.

Okcupid VS. Tinder: Price

Both OkCupid and Tinder are free to use and require no sign up fee, but have a lot of features you need to pay for.

OkCupid offers A-List which allows you to see who likes you, refine who you see, see when someone has read your messages, and also removes all the ads from the app. You can pay $9.99 for 1 month, or choose a 3 or 6-month option.

You can also pay $24.90 for a month to get A-List Premium which offers essentially the same benefits as A-List Basic, but instead boosts your profile each day to be seen by more people and comes at a higher price.

Tinder offers Tinder Plus and Tinder Gold; both offer you unlimited likes, rewinds on your last swipe, 5 Super Likes, 1 free boost, and a passport to swipe anywhere in the world. Tinder Gold however, gives you the ability to see who likes you before swiping. Tinder Plus is $9.99 and Tinder Gold is an additional $4.99.

The biggest difference is that Tinder will charge extra for those above the age of 30. For example, Tinder Plus is $9.99 a month, or $19.9 if you’re 35+.
