Also, mutual ‘likes’ are not required for direct messaging, so any user can drop you a line if they want. SC: Easy to use, and more importantly, messages are directed to your inbox and not to your device, so unwanted attention is relatively easy to ignore. SC: What I’ve always liked about OKCupid as a dating site is the fact that you are encouraged to investigate a person’s interests and enthusiasms before making a call on whether to ‘like’ or ‘favourite’ their profile. And Murphy’s Law almost always results in them ‘liking’ you in return and sending a barrage of messages to reinforce just how much they like you. SC: Just like other dating apps or websites, it’s fun to play around with and maybe get an ego boost, but as a method for finding a potential partner, it kinda sucks.However, the app’s Quickmatch function, while keeping up with other apps like Tinder, reduces the dating game to a superficial popularity contest where you’re only as dateable as your latest profile picture. Of all the guys who have contacted me, not one has convinced me that they’re actually interested in me as a person – unfortunately online dating in South Africa is often justfocused on hook-up culture.
