OkCupid: How To Know If Someone Passes You

Having used OkCupid a few times before, I always wondered if you could know if someone passed you.

I’ve liked a few profiles, and they’ve been added to my ‘liked list’, but after a while, their profile would just disappear.

So what gives?

I decided to dig a little deeper, and here’s what I found out.

OkCupid: How To Know If Someone Passes You

Short Answer: You won’t get notified when someone passes you on OkCupid, but there are some ways to figure it out. This includes profile visibility, disappearing from mutual matches, little to no interaction, and profiles no longer showing on your liked list.

To keep both users’ privacy intact, OkCupid won’t explicitly notify you that someone passed your profile.

However, if you’re interested in knowing, there are a few things you can check that’ll give you all the information you need.

Since none of these steps invade the other person’s privacy, I’ll be happy to help you figure out if someone passes you on OkCupid.

Methods To Know If Someone Passes You On OkCupid

Let’s look at different ways to figure out if someone passed your profile.

Method 1- Profile Doesn’t Show Up In Likes

If you liked someone, and you’re waiting for them to like you back, check back often to see if you matched.

However, if you check your ‘liked list’ and the person you were interested in doesn’t show up there, it’s possible they passed on you.

It might just be an app or website glitch, so you can try restarting the app or refreshing the webpage.

Sometimes it works, and their profile will show up again.

But if it doesn’t, then they’ve definitely hit pass on your profile.

If it was someone you were really interested in, you can check back later to see if they show up on your ‘Discover’ feed.

But it’ll probably be a long while before that happens.

It’s still an option, though.

Method 2- Profile Visibility

As mentioned above, you won’t get to know directly if someone passes your profile, but a lack of profile visibility is a good indication that they did.

Let me explain.

If you liked someone’s profile, they’ll show up in your ‘liked list’.

But if they pass on your profile, their profile will disappear from your list.

So if you can’t find them on your list and their profile doesn’t show up anymore on ‘Discover’, then it’s safe to say they passed your profile.

However, this doesn’t mean that their profile won’t show up again. That happens only if someone blocks you.

After a certain amount of time has passed, their profile can show up again on your ‘Discover’ and vice versa.

And who knows, maybe you’ll be a match this time around.

Method 3- Disappearing From Mutual Matches

When you like someone’s profile, and they like you back, you’re added to the matched section and can start a conversation.

But this doesn’t mean they can’t pass you after matching.

If someone passes on you after a match, their profile will disappear from the match list.

You’ll also disappear from their match list.

But, similar to ‘profile visibility’, you might still end up on each other’s ‘Discover’ page after a period of time.

For now, though, you won’t be coming across their profile for a while.

Method 4- Little To No Interaction

Let’s say you matched with someone and started a conversation with them.

However, after some time, there are no responses from them, and eventually, the chat disappears from your messages.

This is another indication that the other person probably passed your profile.

It can still show up later though as long as they haven’t blocked you.

In some cases, the other person might not pass your profile on OkCupid.

But if they’re no longer interested in conversing with you, they’ll probably ignore or silence your messages.

While this isn’t exactly passing you, it’s a pretty similar feeling, so it’s best to move on.

Final Words

While there aren’t any legitimate ways to check if someone passes you on OkCupid without privacy concerns, you can use the steps outlined here.

It’s more of figuring it out based on the information that OkCupid provides you with.

So put on that detective hat and know who passes you on OkCupid.
