Match.com - Editor's Review

The main attraction of the portal is a one-of-a-kind matching algorithm that individually adapts to each member and improves its matching capabilities the more you use the site. You get an attentively selected sample of singles who are likely to match you. Apart from a witty attitude towards matchmaking, Match offers its users a set of a high-quality communication tools. It is unlikely that you would lack any instruments while staying on the website.
However, you would experience all the advantage of Match only if you are a paid member.
Match.com Site Overview
Simplicity of Use
It would not take much time to join Match. In the process of setting up your account, you are asked to give brief answers to several questions and share some details of your life and personality (e.g., marital status) and some key features of a person you dream of.
In general, Match is a nicely designed platform, and it is rather simple in navigation, although, you would need a few minutes to get used to the menu and the website’s layout. In a case you have any questions or doubts, you may rely on a 24/7 support team.
Also, you may utilize a convenient mobile application for chatting on-the-go.
Match Reviews and Feedbacks
Here are reviews and feedbacks from the users who recently used the service:
I went on Match.com in October of 2008. I met my husband November of 2008. He got into a suit of armor and proposed on bended knee on Valentine's Day 2009. We were married in August of 2009. That was seven years ago, and we are still happily married! It worked for me! I would recommend that anyone (especially women) go onto the site without doing your due diligence. My experience is that people who pay for a dating website are more serious.
Unlike most of the free sites match.com organically weeds out looky-loos from those who are serious about meeting a potential partner. The nominal fee that they charge separates the tire kickers from those who are serious. Concerning their proprietary algorithm, I can say with certainty that the majority of the matches that they presented to me were accurate. Ultimately, I became engaged three years after dating a woman I met on match.com and we have been together for four years.
Match has been giving me great guys so far. I like the permutations of matches that they give me. I think they have a good way of understanding characters and what makes one happy based on the information you give them. I've gone out with three guys so far, and all have been wonderful friends. I've only been a member for a short while, but I'm already really liking it. I find the website to be very easy to navigate as well. Let's see what happens from here. I'd recommend it. Wish me luck! :).

Match operates in more than 25 countries, but most of their members are located in the U.S. You may try to sort the user out due to their place of residence. In such way, you would spot those who are located in your area. In general, Match unites over 21 million users, but it does not mean that you would find dozens of companions immediately. You may start your search from those who live close to you and who are online when you log in: it is more convenient and productive to communicate with those who are ready to respond instantly. The list of online users is available for you to check it out before you start texting anyone.
When it comes to identifying your match, the service allows its members to add their preferences according to the following variables:
- Gender preference
- Marital status
- Smoking/drinking habits
- Longest relationship time
- Dating intentions
Quality of Profiles
When you check out Match for the first time you are likely to notice that the profiles are very detailed. It is normal to open somebody’s page and find only the basic facts about the person. However, you would also need to find out all the details that interest you in a personal communication. If a person took a quiz, you would see the results indicated in their pages. Even though the majority of profiles contain photos, you have no chance to enlarge them. And it is pretty hard to understand whether you like a person or not when you see almost nothing. The search criteria offered by Match are standard and do not differ much from the set inherent to other Web-based dating environments. Also, whenever you see a great member, you may mark them as favorites.
Match has a clear security policy: whenever you notice a suspicious user, you are encouraged to inform the vendor. The user will be checked and, if something is wrong, expelled from the site’s community. In general, Match does not verify identities of all its clients and pays closer attention only to those who are reported as suspicious.
Also, your payment information is protected so that your bank account details will not leak and will be misused.
Match charges no payment for registration so that you can join the site for free. As with majority dating sites, there is a basic free membership that allows you to have access to limited functionality. However, if you decide to go further, you can pay for one of the memberships.
Match offers the following pricing options:
- Free Basic Account £0
