Not everyone tells the truth in their online dating profiles. But there is actually something a little more sinister at play on some sites. You do not really know who you are talking to online. And sometimes they may not even be a real person.
OkCupid does have fake profiles on their dating app. This is true to most online dating sites. Scammers use fake profiles to try and lure people into sending them money. OkCupid also uses them to make their app seem more popular.
Check out the video below for a great example of a fake OkCupid profile. As this guy tries to talk to the bot, it tries to get him to move to a different communication platform. This is a huge red flag.
