Top Ways to Search for Someone on OkCupid [2022 Update]

OkCupid is a free dating site at its best and a great way to meet people in your area. Other times, you might need to scour the search result to find someone. The OkCupid app is popularly abbreviated as OKC and has also evolved to become a favorite app for online dating.

Searching a profile on Okcuid can be tricky. This becuase the teh app itse;f doesn’t allow you to search profiles. But luckly, gives you access to our custom technology that allows you to search through billions of recods to find someone’s dating profiles with just a few clicks. Use the search bar below to run your first search today.

OkCupid used to have a way to search by “username,” which made it relatively easy to look up someone’s frequently used moniker or screen/username. However, perhaps to help with privacy, the site ditched the “username” search (which used to be an option shown just below the “bookmarks” tab), labeled as “Find a user.”

Who are you searching for? Start with a simple search when signing up, which lists their age, gender (for which OkCupid has many choices), location, and how recently the user logged into the site. If you’re searching for a particular age, different gender, or place, this could be helpful, but you will not find what you need, especially if the person you are looking for is scared of divorce.
  1. Log into your OkCupid profile.
  2. Click on your profile thumbnail (you can find this on the top right corner of your screen)
  3. When the drop-down menu appears, click on “Find a User”
  4. You will see a white box with the words, “search by username”.

OKCupid Username Search ✚ Funnest OKCupid Username Ever

1. Search by Their Old OkCupid Username (From Before the Redesign)

If the person you’re looking for signed up prior to the redesign in 2018, you can still find them by their old username!

Either you remember the person’s username or, if you don’t, you might be able to take a good guess at it based on the person’s Instagram, Facebook, etc.

If so, just go to your computer and enter this URL:[the person’s old username]

OkCupid has all sorts of filters that are super-nifty for finding someone you know.

The holy grail: what is the person’s zip code? Limit your search to that location only, as narrow as it will allow. And then add in age, height, etc. etc.

For last login, make that one as broad as you can (like anywhere in the past year).

OkCupid App Advanced Filters: Step 1

If the automated search results from your sign-up don’t reveal the results, you need, and you want to fine-tune your efforts, do the following.

First, when looking at the underlying search the site is running for you (which will read something like, Men/ Women/etc. who are interested in ________ ages ___ – ___ located _______ online within __________), click any of dashed underlines showing selections and you will be given a simple list of other options to update. From there, you can search again, with the new information you’ve entered.

Advanced Filters: Step 2

However, step 1 still keeps search results limited to the basics. To find someone online, you will typically need more features by which to search. Although preliminary information matters (age, location, gender, etc.), you will need to add more options for the best results.

Knowing this, OkCupid doesn’t disappoint! Look to the right, of the primary automated search, for (3) vertical lines with dots (shown here).

Click on the of the lines and a new window will pop up. In this new window, you will find far more detailed search options (see picture). These include an ability to search by looks, height, attractiveness, body type, questions (OkCupid uses a detailed Q&A ranging from traditional to obscure questions to determine personality and compatibility), background, personality, vices.
