How To Search By Username On OkCupid

Editor's Note: OkCupid no longer has unique usernames, but you'll still want to check out this OkCupid message women can't resist!

Looking for a specific hottie on OkCupid but wondering what happened to the username search?

Here’s a shortcut, and we’ll also show you where OkCupid hid it.

First, try plugging her username into the following URL address:

If her profile is active, that will bring it up.

To search by username on your phone, it’s a little trickier. First, you have to log in to the OkCupid mobile app. Then, go to your browser, log into OkCupid, then enter this URL:

That will bring up the username box, and you can enter her name there. As of yet, there is no way to search by usernames directly from the OkCupid app.

The above URL will also bring you directly to the search box on your computer.

You can actually still search by username on OkCupid’s online site, they just made it a little harder to find. Here’s how you do it:

  1. Log into your OkCupid profile
  2. Click on your profile thumbnail (you can find this on the top right corner of your screen)
  3. When the drop-down menu appears, click on “Find a User”
  4. You will see a white box with the words, “search by username”. Type the username here.
  5. Her profile will appear as a search result (assuming it is still active) and you can click through to their page.

Remember—getting the girl is about more than just finding her. Make sure you have a killer OkCupid profile and photos to match so she’ll say “Yes” to a date.

You’ve Found Her - Now What?

Finding her profile is only half the battle. In fact, that’s the easy part. Now you’ve got to get her attention. If she’s hot, her inbox is going to be crammed full of messages from guys just like you. And to crush the competition, you need a solid icebreaker.

The perfect icebreaker message accomplishes three things:

  • It grabs her attention.
  • It makes her feel something positive.
  • It asks her a question.

Asking her a question is crucial, because that makes it easy for her to respond. And when you ask her something that’s fun to think about and engages her imagination, she’s already associating you with pleasurable emotions.

Here’s an example:

Most women enjoy travel, or at least thinking about exotic destinations. So this icebreaker works for anyone. On the surface it seems personalized, since you’re talking about her sense of adventure. And that’s the beauty of it - you can send it to 100s of women, and each one will think you picked up on her adventurous side because you read her profile.
