Match.com Review 2020
Is Match.com a reliable dating site?
Match.com focuses on creating new friendly or romantic relationships. The website is around since 1995 and has a really big pool of active users. You can certainly meet new people on Match and perhaps create real, compatible relationships. However it seems like Match.com algorithm isn’t always very accurate and doesn’t always send people that are compatible. Unlike other dating sites, Match.com let you browse other singles profile which you may prefer to receiving daily matches.
Memberships & pricing
You can register on Match.com for free. It’s a good way to understand how the website works before signing up for a paid membership. The following features are available for free:
- Create a profile
- Upload photos
- Send and receive Winks
- Receive emails
- Send limited messages to your ‘top picks’ (most compatible profiles)
If you want to enjoy more features on Match.com, you’ll need to subscribe to a paid membership. You’ll probably want to subscribe as it’s frustrating not to be able to converse with someone you’d like to meet. With a paid membership, you’ll be able to send and receive unlimited emails, view other people profiles photos and also get email notifications. You can pay by credit card or paypal. It’s important to know that auto-billing is automatic on Match.com and will renew your membership for the same length of time. You’ll need to cancel from your profile in settings/manage subscription or by emailing customer support. Don’t forget to do it ahead of the end of your subscription.
You can sign up to Match.com quite easily with your email address. Then you’ll have to fill out a questionnaire about your interests, qualities and characteristics (such as height, body weight, eyes colour etc…) and also the gender of the person you’d like to be matched with. Match also asks you about kids, if you want them / and if you smoke and drink. The questionnaire basically focuses on practical aspects of your life and it’s mandatory to answer so if you don’t feel like disclosing these information on your profile, it might not be the right site for you. Once you’ve completed your profile, you can get started immediately!
Match.com doesn’t verify emails or profiles which can lead to people making fake profiles. Some members complained about other profiles being scams or fake profiles.
Contacting Other Members
Every day, Match.com sends you ‘matches’ or users you might like. Similar to Tinder interface, you swipe them on your screen and decide whether you like them or not. If you like them, you’ll be able to send them messages and they’ll receive a notification telling them you like them. If you click ignore, their profile will disappear from your screen and you’ll be sent to the next match.
Match.com is only available through email support which can be very annoying if you have an urgent matter or a technical problem. You’ll have to fill their online form available here, and they usually respond within 48h.
The Bottom Line
In our opinion, starting the conversation by liking someone isn’t the best if you’re over 25 years old. Match.com dating pool comprises a fair bit of older people (between 30 and 50) and likes are not the best way to start a conversation if you are dating seriously. However, the good thing is that as well as being matched with people, you can browse profiles yourself. It’s good if you don’t like being matched and want to look yourself, however you’ll need time on your hands to go through hundreds of other profiles.
Match.com is great if you’re single and not in a rush to find love or if you’re new in a city; Match.com hosts singles events you can attend. From online coaching, to quizzes, and music events, this is definitely the good and fun part you don’t want to miss.
