OK Cupid was one of the first real dating-services-turned-app way back when Britney Spears and MySpace were still relevant ha-ha, referential humour, ha-ha.
I have a soft spot for OKC because it gives you an actual profile to fuck around with and customize to match your actual loser self.

On many a dating service here in the groin of the universe, the male-to-female ratio is about, oh say, 7 to 1.
I remember my last experience with OKCupid; without going into too many details, it started with a horrifically bad joke, evolved into awkward beers at some rooftop in a place I don't want to remember, followed by a riveting talk about intersectional feminism and the benefits of a weekly avocado facial, before ending with a drunk Big Mac.

Don't discount it entirely, though; Badoo somehow manages to provide more consistent results than Tinder, especially here in Egypt. Whether it's the game-like aspect giving people more incentive to stay on it and suck up fake confidence or the fact that people there are actual people miserable as they may be and not robots or rapists.
