Ok Cupid co-founder Christian Rudder stated in 2009 that the male Ok Cupid users who were rated most physically attractive by female Ok Cupid users received 11 times as many messages as the lowest-rated male users did, the medium-rated male users received about four times as many messages, and the one-third of female users who were rated most physically attractive by the male users received about two-thirds of all messages sent by male users.
Ok Cupid was the first major dating site to offer unlimited messaging free of charge, although this was limited in late 2017 when Ok Cupid's official blog announced the site is "getting rid of open-messaging" and making sent messages invisible to the recipient until they in turn interact with the sender.This raised questions from some users who wondered about the ease with which the company could eliminate users from its platform.A February 2019 report alleged that many users reported lost access to their accounts in a manner consistent with either a data breach or a widespread "credential stuffing" incident.The site supports multiple modes of communication, including instant messages and emails.Ok Cupid was listed in Time magazine's 2007 Top 10 dating websites. Ok Cupid's founders (Chris Coyne, Christian Rudder, Sam Yagan, and Max Krohn) were students at Harvard University when they gained recognition for their creation of The Spark and, later, Spark Notes.
