Looking for the best OkCupid profile examples you can use to get more likes?

We’ve put together OkCupid profile “About Me” examples for each of the 6 prompts OkCupid lets you choose from.

Try these ideas out and see which one is the best fit for your OkCupid profile!

OkCupid Profile “About Me” #1: My Self-summary

OkCupid’s first and most popular “About me” prompt is “My self-summary”. This OkCupid profile option is so general that it can feel daunting to come up with an original and interesting way to summarize yourself.

Our favorite go-to is to list three favorite things — foods, hobbies, movies — whatever you’re passionate about.

Limiting your list to three keeps your summary succinct and makes people interested in learning more about you instead of thinking they already have you figured out.


Jocelyn, 28
My self-summary

Bad horror movies, sour beer, running in Riverside Park

Peter, 30
My self-summary

Matcha addict, Minecraft architect, Michael Bay film critic

OkCupid Profile “About Me” #2: Favorite Thing

Unless you’re traveling, most people seeing your OkCupid profile probably live in the same area as you. So answering the “favorite thing about the place I live” prompt with something very general about your city, like “sunshine, mountains, the people” isn’t all that compelling.

OkCupid profiles that offer a very specific interesting fact or anecdote are much more likely to get a doubletake.


Renee, 24
Favorite thing about the place I live

I can get CBD tinctures for myself and my dog from at least 3 places on my block.

Stephen, 26
Favorite thing about the place I live

We have arguably the best Indian food in the state, nay, the west.

OkCupid Profile “About Me” #3: People Who Know Me…

Think of your OkCupid profile as your dating resume. Your relationship prospects don’t need to see a list of qualities you think you are (funny, warm, team player). Instead, let your personality speak for itself when you share things your friends would say about you.

We like this most likely/least likely template for answering the “most people that know me would say I’m…” prompt.


Lee, 23
Most people that know me would say I’m

most likely to find reasons to order takeout, least likely to cook

Casey, 22
Most people that know me would say I’m

Most likely to initiate game night, least likely to go to a football game

OkCupid Profile “About Me” #4: Favorite Childhood Memory

We’ve noticed most people tend to stick to the default “my self-summary” OkCupid profile prompt, so you’re more likely to stand out from the pack just by choosing the lesser-known “favorite memory from my childhood”.

Sharing a funny or wholesome memory strikes the perfect chord of intimate without being creepy, and will make people want to swipe right to learn more.


Jessica, 21
Favorite memory from my childhood

Eating Klondike bars for breakfast whenever we were on vacation

Mark, 26
Favorite memory from my childhood

Riding my bike from dawn til dusk every day during the summer without a care in the world.

OkCupid Profile “About Me” #5: Things I am not

Using emojis for the OkCupid profile prompt “Things I am not” is the perfect chance to reveal your sassy side.

Emojis can be interpreted in many different ways, so describing yourself with them in your OkCupid profile will lead to follow-up questions in your chat.


Gwen, 23
Things I am not

🎨, 🔮, 🍸, 💩

Richard, 28
Things I am not

👽, 💀, 🏄, ☕

OkCupid Profile “About Me” #6: Haiku

Picking “Me, a Haiku” as your OkCupid profile prompt is bold, bound to impress, and easier than you think!

Just decide what 3 attributes or hobbies you’d most want to include in your profile and play around with them to fit the 5/7/5 syllable format.


Kennedy, 29
Me, a Haiku

Yoga instructor.
Animal rights activist.
Macrame dabbler.

Jason, 33

Game of Thrones critic.
