I have used OKC for a few years but have tried other sites as well. Their matching system is not especially good but it is better than random.

The main advantage and the problem is the questions. These are detailed and sometimes too detailed. But always voluntary. But if someone only answers 10 questions and they are the same as yours - that could be a high match. I often get matched with women with 75% or higher and they have almost no questions answered.

Lately I have been getting many women from other countries especially the Philippines. That is not very practical. However in my older age bracket - there are literally no women within a 500 mile range of me. I get the same 12-16 in that age bracket. I entered my home town thinking I might retire there and wanted to see how many were there. Same thing. Maybe 18 women in my desired age range. So I've moved over to STITCH which I see is not even in the list of sites. I keep my OKC membership open another 4 months or so until my membership fee runs out.

If there were more women in the age that I wanted then I'd stay with OKC. I've met serious relationships, casual dating and some friends who are still friends.

Finally all those questions are good as you are able to search using the questions. Or you can check if someone contacts you before replying. So I have a series of questions that will almost immediately make me block a potential contact. For example the simple question: Trump? **** yes or **** no - if the woman has answered "**** yes" then I'll never contact here. Same with her responses to things like evolution, same sex marriages etc. You can select someone who is like minded before even contacting them.
