I set my Looking For to “located anywhere”, why am I still seeing local people?
Setting your profile to look for people “located anywhere” includes people who live near you and also far away. We also make sure to only show you people who are interested in folks who live where you do.
Because the vast majority of members on OkCupid are looking only for people near them, you’ll likely still mostly see people near your location.
However, if you set your Looking For to “located anywhere” you will also see people located anywhere who are looking for people in your location.
