The only people who can access your profile are those who have you on their list of "Favorites". friend use to be able to view profiles using a basic search, but everytime he tries to it gives him the sign up page instead, he doesn't have an account, and is unsure if he wants one, so he would do the odd basic search UT now it just takes him to a page to sign up..
Your profile can be viewed from the "Forum" side if you have posted on a thread.
You can only browse profiles so long without it trying to get you to register or login. Cowboy As the other posters have tried to explain, forum login is separate to profile login. Within the three or four profile view limit, you will still get the login screen if the person's profile is hidden. If i click on Ms taken i get the main sign up page.
You can see any forum poster's profile by clicking "View Profile" for up to three or four (while NOT log into the profile side). Now if i log in and go back to the forum i can see ms taken's profile.
I know exactly what Michael means because I encounter the same thing occasionally, myself.Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. You can view all profiles with or without an account provided the users has not hidden it.I have noticed that some profiles can only be viewed if you're a member. It seems i have to have a least 200 letters to post so i don't know exactly what else to say but i'll keep typing LOL. Thanks I have noticed that some profiles can only be viewed if you're a member.

If it is hidden no one can view it, unless that person post's on the forums and if that is the case you must also be logged into your profile to then view it.Also, if you've sent someone a message and they've retained it, your profile can be accessed that way as well. If you have an unhidden profile, it can be accessed by anyone who visits the site, logged in or not. Ok Cupid is free to join, free to search, and free to message. Return to your search results and try another site if you decide that their service is not for you.Setting up and replying to personal ads online can get expensive.If you choose to "Hide Your Profile", no one doing a search will have access to it.Your profile will not be used as "filler" on any page.But sometimes it won't let me see the profile unless i log in on the main website.Reason i thought it was some sort of setting is because it's only a few profiles it happens to as most of them can be viewed without logging in... I'll be logged into the forums, but not necessarily logged into my profile account.
