Back to Online Dating Sites Reviews

Visit MatchMatch.com is an online dating service that reaches out to more than 15 million members who are searching for someone for a casual dining partner or for an intimate relationship. Match.com is offered in more than 20 languages and it is available in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and several other countries.

Match.com offers an introductory free trial membership. Trial members can create a profile including photos, guidance on how to use the site, browse member profiles, search member profiles, and express an interest in members whose profiles interest them.

Paid members can do all of the above as well as send and receive emails to and from other members, conduct searches, save searches, and access information on members who have viewed your profile.

Members have three options for completing a profile. Any of these profiles can be used to conduct a search. The basic profile form is short and takes less than 20 minutes to complete. Members can use a professional writer to create their introductory paragraph for their profile.

Both the personality and physical attraction profiles take about an hour to complete, yet the information included on them will lead to a match that is more accurate. Since some of the questions are quite personal, members have the option to leave an answer blank without disrupting the search process. Plus, drop down menus for the answers simplify the entire process.

It isn’t necessary to share each one of your three profiles with all members. You have the option to determine which ones to share. Plus, you can change your mind on this.

Find a match based on physical attraction or personality. Match.com offers a variety of search options including photo gallery, zip code, username, age, keyword, who is available online, interests, values (religion, education, language, politics), lifestyle (exercise habits, occupation, income, pets, children, drinking, or smoking), and physical appearance.

Match.com features a graph display indicating how well your profile matches another member’s profile as well as a list of facets that you will most likely consider to be attractive as well as those that you will find to be unattractive about the other individual.

An excellent help and support system and easy site navigation, add to the popularity of this site. Plus, Match.com provides great search functioning tools that allow for narrowed searches providing better results and a better likelihood of a good match. The exceptional customer service provides help through toll free number, email, FAQ, or snail mail.

Speed matching allows members to sign up for a set of phone calls with four different members to have a 4-minute conversation on a predetermined topic. Members also view each person’s profile while conversing and afterwards, they indicate whether they would like to continue the contact. Live events are arranged in more than 30 states and provide the opportunity to practice speed matching in person. With wireless dating, members can send a phone call that preserves the privacy of their phone number.

Match.com features (available to paid members only) include winks, flirts, video profiles, voice greetings, events, online chats, instant messaging, member spotlights, and speed matching. Moreover, online dating articles and a portrait toolkit are included in the membership. Also, a 6-month subscription offers an additional 6 months free if the member does not locate someone during that time.

Two types of basic searches are available- one to browse and one to match with a member based upon personality profiles and interests. A reverse search allows you to discover who is looking for you. Plus, you can save your searches.

Match.com also features several add on services including email read notification, highlighted profile, and first impressions. TV’s Dr. Phil endorses Match.com. Also, MindFindBlind, a 3-step program from Dr. Phil, is available to members for an additional fee.

If you cancel before the end of the trial period, you can avoid the charge to upgrade to a full membership. Trial members can receive matches during this time on a daily basis. However, only full members (those with a paid membership) can contact other Match.com members.

A full membership is available for $34.99 a month. However, less expensive options exist when you purchase your membership for a longer time. A 3-month membership is only $19.99 a month, while a 6-month membership is only $16.99 a month. Once you no longer wish to use this online dating service, cancel your membership to avoid monthly charges. Reactivation is easy.
