We expect everyone on OkCupid to treat each other respectfully, with kindness and compassion. We do not tolerate hateful, hurtful, or harassing content on OkCupid. We consider unsolicited sexual content and messages to be sexual harassment. We don't like jerks, so please don't be a jerk. Here's the thing. We want you to think about this one rule: treat online interactions as you would even if they were offline. This also applies when interacting with our lovely Billing, Moderation, and Support teams!
OkCupid is not a magical place where people want to hear about your sexual fantasies out of the blue, or where you can be mean to someone with no repercussions. Treat it as a place where you can talk to other humans about things that matter to you both, and remember that the best way to make a meaningful connection with someone is to treat them well.
Below are our community guidelines and moderation standards. If you see anyone who violates these guidelines, please report them to us right away. Messages should be respectful, appropriate, honest, and kind.
We don't tolerate "negging" insulting statements disguised as "flirting" or other rude behavior. This expectation also includes interactions with OkCupid staff. People found to be sending harassing messages will be banned. Additionally, profile content itself should also be respectful and kind. Profile essays which are found to be overly combative or hateful may be removed or may even result in your profile being banned. Exposing other people to your sexual fantasies without their consent is rude and inappropriate, and it's not what most people on OkCupid are looking for.
If your profile is reported to us as sexually explicit or offensive, it will be banned. We also do not allow unwanted sexually explicit messages on OkCupid. Even if someone says they are open to hookups on their profile, it does NOT mean they want sexually explicit messages. Our belief in them has acted as our inspiration since our founding. We proudly stand rooted in inclusivity. This includes but is not limited to:. We do not allow any content in photos, profiles, or messages that is threatening, incites violence, contains graphic or gratuitous violence or gore, or is disturbing or otherwise inappropriate for a dating site.
This does also include depictions of self harm which can in turn be harmful for others to see. This content will be removed and may also get you banned. We consider your profile's display name and your profile text to be similar to a first message or first impression to other members of the site: we expect both to be respectful and appropriate. If your profile text or name could be seen as offensive, hateful, obscene, or clearly trolling, we will take moderation action, up to and including banning your profile. Your listed name should be the name you like to go by.
It can be your first name, your initials, or a nickname- all are fine. It does not have to be the full name on your birth certificate! We do not check listed names against any kind of ID, and we trust people to enter names they'd like to go by themselves. That said, we will still moderate based on names if they include offensive or obscene language, or make a profile appear to be fake i.
You must create only one unique profile. In addition, your use of OkCupid must be for bona fide relationship-seeking purposes for example, you may not use OkCupid solely to compile a report of compatible singles in your area, to find people to a club or group activity, or to write a school research paper.

Do not attempt to get other member's financial or other private information. Do not send messages or create s for the purpose of driving members to a business or external site.

A of a scammer, fake , or someone up to no good is when they are in a hurry to give you their offsite contact info too quickly.
