Is there an existing https everywhere campaign you can join? I would also look into starting a petition somewhere. They usually don't get much done but you can gauge support for the idea and point to it in your emails.
Despite this being a technical issue as Will Rico points out, they can at least post an update on their blog about their progress on implementing https everywhere.
Does this response (below) make sense technically?
I have my doubts.
If it doesn't then I invite others on list to join me in putting some pressure on OkCupid, starting with just showing them how to deploy https and keep their ads.
(If it does, then, depending on the details, perhaps that pressure should be directed at Google instead, to allow their ads to be embedded in sites served over https.)
I am also trying to get doodle.com to serve only https. They have completely ignored me so far. Some more voices could be helpful.
I know I can use https://dudle.inf.tu-dresden.de/ instead, which is better on a number of fronts, when I initiate the poll, but people still send me doodle polls every so often.

To: email@example.comHi,Thanks for your message. We can't offer https on the entire site because it would also prevent our ads from Google Ads from being served. Our developers are aware of the issue and would like to offer it when possible.Thanks,AliceOn Sun, Nov 18, 2012 at 1:50 AM, OkCupid User Feedback <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:
Could you please enable https everywhere? Or tell me what is your reason for selectively enabling https on only some portions of the site?
I persist in demanding https despite it breaking sites like yours (though note it doesn't break bigger sites like Google or Wikipedia) because I want a better web. Some of the reasons are spelled out here: https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere/deploying-https.
