Summary


With a huge selection of members all over the country and in your local area there could be someone special waiting for you in this popular and easy to use online dating site, Match.com.

Registration


When you first arrive at the site, it will ask who (the gender and age) you are looking for and where, your birthday, and country of origin. Basically, you’ll need to give a few basic details before you even log in. You may also notice that it is compulsory to receive transactional and promotional emails from Match.com without having the option to immediately opt out. That being said, you can still withdraw your consent afterwards by sending the website admins an email stating so.

The registration process in Match.com is as painless as possible, and you’ll be brought straight to the profile building section of the site really quickly.

Profile


To build your profile, you’ll first need to tell the website a bit about yourself so they could get you a great match. This includes physical characteristics, such as hair and eye color, height, and body type; opinions about kids, religious beliefs, political views, education level and career status; habits, favorite hobbies, languages you speak, as well as pets.

Once done, you’ll then need to go through the same criteria, but this time for your date. Interestingly, in Match.com, there’s a Deal Breaker checkbox that you can check when any of the criteria you filled are non-negotiable to you. For example, some people want to find someone who is of the same religion. If so, you can check the Deal Breaker box for religious beliefs section.

Next, you’ll be required to fill in the “In Your Own Words” section with well... your own words! There’s a headline you’ll need to write to promote yourself or to let potential suitors know who you’re specifically looking for. There’s even a Member Spotlight checkbox that you can check if you want to increase your chances of being displayed on the front page of Match.com and most definitely ramp up your chances of being seen by your Mr or Ms Right.

Lastly, you’ll need to upload a profile picture. Match.com recommends smiling in your picture, use a recent photo, avoid blurry photos and ensure that the environment in your photo is well-lit. Don’t forget to fill in your Profile Description as well. You can write about you or your match as long as the description exceeds 200 characters.

However, do take note that your profile will require the approval of the website admin of Match.com. There are also several verification badges you can obtain for your profile so you can prove that you are who you say you are. All you need to do is to verify your email address, phone number and social media accounts.

Matches


Once your profile is up and live, you’ll immediately get your first set of matches. Filter through them and see who you like. These matches are the Daily Matches that you’ll get from the website on an obviously daily basis.

There’s also a Match Me feature that will place you in the daily matches of the people you really like and have singled out from your daily matches. This is a great feature to use in order to see if that someone you had your eye on will notice you in return.

If the Daily Matches aren’t very fruitful for you, you could also head over to the Go Search part of the website and manually look for a date that you will be interested in. There are even 2 other search functions that you can use to maximize your chances of finding “the One”, namely Mutual Match and Reverse Match. Mutual Match displays a list of potential dates selected based on what you’re looking for and what the dates are looking for, while Reverse Match lists out potential dates based on what these dates are looking for and also based on what information you’ve provided to the website.

To make your matches even more accurate, you could block and remove profiles that you’ve passed over from your list of matches too.

Communication Options


There are many ways you can communicate with the date/s that you really like. You can directly look them up via chat and start chatting with them if they are online. You could even chat up anybody you meet on chat. Who knows? Something might just click between you both.

If not, you might want to leave them an email message instead. However, since the first emails can only be sent by subscribers only, you might need to use more indirect methods to let them know that you’re interested in him or her, like writing 4-5 sentences on their profile telling them about what you like about them. That being said, if the other person initiates the first email though, you’ll be able to reply for free. You could also use more subtle actions instead, such as leaving them a wink, likes and favorites.

Even if the date didn’t work out as expected, you could still keep your match as a connection on Match.com and a friend.

General Look


Match.com is one of the top online dating website for a very good reason. Its matching algorithm is not only top-notch; its interface is also very clean-looking and simplistic. You can easily navigate within the website even if you’re not exactly tech savvy. With simply the click of a mouse button, you can check your daily matches or email.

Special Features


Match.com has quite a lot of special features, ranging from the many varieties of matching, member spotlight, the Deal Breaker option and more. However, the best part of this website is definitely its Match.com Guarantee. In this Guarantee, the website proposed a challenge for you. If you purchase a 6-month subscription, keep a truthful profile initiate or respond to at least 5 emails or chats per month, and you adhere to a list of other Match.com Guarantee program rules, you should be able to find the one you’ve been looking for.

If you still can’t find someone special, Match.com will eat their hats and give you 6 more months of subscription for free!

Cost


You can register on Match.com for free, but if you would like access to a whole lot more tools on the website, you can choose between getting a bundle or a basic subscription plan.

Each plans offer 3 packages – 3, 6 and 12 months, and naturally, the longer the duration, the lower the cost per month. The obvious difference between costs of the bundle and basic plans is something that you might have noticed straight off. This is mainly because basic plans have all the pros of being a subscriber, which includes the ability to send and receive emails, see who’s viewed you, access to SingledOut matches and a Private Mode, but it’s missing out on a few useful features, namely email read notification, first impressions and highlighted profiles.

Conclusion


Match.com is quite an impressive online dating website and has proven that it deserves its title of being one of the best online dating sites out there. Every success story fuels the site to become better at improving on their matching algorithm, and if you needed help, their support service is really helpful. That being said, if you’re in desperate need for companionship, well... why not take up the website on their Match.com Guarantee challenge and find your date within the next 6 months?
