How can I only be seen by people who live far away?The only way to prevent people near your location from seeing you is to go Incognito. This allows you to only be seen by people whose profiles you’ve liked.
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.
