OKCupid releases “Mutual Fit” for better matches

Back in April, OKCupid announced a new feature of their famous (and secret) matching algorithm: Mutual Fit. They don’t go into the technical details, but basically this new feature ensures you will “only see, and be seen, by other members when both of you match one another’s stated preferences for age, location, gender, orientation, and relationship status.”

This functionality was available prior to this, but at that time you had to do a specific search with the right filters and checkboxes. Now, they’ve cut out the extra step and take care of that for you.

Have you noticed a change in your matches since April? Let us know in the comments.
