Met my TV on OkCupid, and my ex of a few years on there too, so yeah I’m a fan. Have used it on and off before/between those relationships, and went on a few dates and met some fairly cool people which led to stuff sometimes, and other times didn’t but just because it didn’t click rather than anything weird. Think the worst experience I’ve had were one or two fairly boring dates, could be worse. My experiences of Tinder weren’t quite so positive, but that was partly because whenever I did get matches I never really knew what to say, so I wasn’t particularly good at converting time to dates.
Tbh, if you’re on Dis and you’re thinking of doing online dating, go for OkCupid. There’s loads of cool, interesting attractive people on there, and the amount of text people put on their profile (including a “favourite music/films/tv” section that will be full of Dis favourites) gives you quite a nice sense of what people are like, and loads of information to work with for a decent first message. I’m not particularly photogenic and I don’t think my profile was all that brilliant, but I seemed to do ok on there, perhaps because as other people have alluded to in this thread, merely reading their profile and typing in sentences seemed to put me ahead of a lot of the male competition.
(Again, this is through the experiences of a white male, appreciate the experience maybe isn’t as positive for everyone)
