There typically comes a time in the online dating realm when you find yourself annoyed, uninterested or creeped out by a particular person on OkCupid whom you’d rather either completely hide from your browsing or outright block them from sending you further messages.
Now, on the OkCupid dating site, there are a few different ways on how you can block someone from interacting with you. Also it’s important to keep in mind that each of these methods only blocks or hides someone in certain ways, but not others, so it’s up to you to decide which methods to employ for that particularly creepy person who you don’t want to associate with.
How To Block Someone from Sending Messages on OkCupid
The first method is to stop someone from sending you OkCupid messages. You won’t be able to do this until the person actually sends you a message, but once they do, you simply scroll to the bottom of that message and click the “block him” or “block her” button next to the reply box, which looks like this:
After clicking this and confirming, this action should now stop that someone from sending you anymore messages.
How To Hide Someone’s Profile on OkCupid
There may also be times when you are browsing people’s profiles on OkCupid that you absolutely know that you are not interested in them. Fortunately, OkCupid makes the ability to hide those profiles very easy so that when browsing or searching in the future, the hidden profiles will no longer be shown to you.
To hide a person’s profile, you simply navigate to the top right of the person’s profile who you want to hide and click on the “Hide” button as shown below:
How To Block Non-OkCupid Users From Viewing Your Profile
There is also an option for making sure that only other OKCupid members who are signed in to the site can view your profile, as opposed to it being publicly viewable by anyone. This is a nice option to have you value some privacy where you may not want the entire world to know that you are on an online dating site.
In order to block non-members from seeing your profile, you simply go to your settings page by clicking on the “settings” link next to your profile picture in the top left corner. Once you get to the Settings page, you then click the check box under “profile options” where it says, “Make my profile viewable only by other members who are signed in, and do not use my profile in advertisements.” Then click on the green save button on the bottom right of the page as shown below:
