On Ok Cupid, you aren’t required to match with someone to start a conversation.

After filling out a profile, Dine asks you to pick three restaurants or bars where you'd want to go on a date.
Dating app developers not only do this for the purpose of looking like a dating version of Instagram, but also to increase their app’s credibility.
