What does the red dot mean on OKCupid?
I havent been on OKCupid in years, so this info may be outdated, but they used to display a green/yellow/red dot to indicate whether or not someone usually responds when you initiate contact with them. Most women have red dots because you probably wont get any response from them whatsoever if you send them a message.
Why cant I see my matches on OKCupid?
If youre not seeing as many people as you expect, try double checking your Looking For settings. You may want to consider expanding those if theyre very restrictive. You may also want to reset your passes (you can do so from your settings page under Privacy) to take another look at people youve passed on.
