How to Sign Up For OkCupid
OkCupid is a social networking site that focuses on dating and romance. It prides itself on its matchmaking skills which are a result of a great system whereby you are, upon creating your account, asked a series of yes or no questions and shown pictures of members of the opposite sex that live close by to see who you like.
