I am Sam Yagan, co-founder of OkCupid, CEO of Match, and on the Board of Tinder. This is dating's busiest week of the year. Need help? AMA.
I studied Applied Mathematics in college, and after working on SparkNotes and eDonkey, I co-founded OkCupid with 3 far more talented people: Chris Coyne, Max Krohn, and Christian Rudder. After we sold OkCupid to Match, I became the CEO of The Match Group, which includes not just Match and OkCupid, but also Tinder, Meetic, OurTime, and about 40 other brands around the world.
Incredulously, I have been named to TIME Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World,” and Fortune Magazine’s “40 Under 40.”
The three most common new year's resolutions involve money/career, health/fitness, and relationships, making this our busiest time of the year as millions of people make finding love a renewed priority. I've got 12 years of experience running dating businesses and all the data at my fingertips, ready to help you if I can. AMA.
Thanks so much for your questions! Please check out OkCupid, Match, Tinder, or any of our other products! I hope you enjoyed this AMA as much as I did. Best, Sam.
