If the continued popularity surrounding Match doesn’t spark your interest, the data the site releases speaks for itself. 38% of members reportedly have had a relationship that started on the site and lasted over a month, much longer than almost any other site, while 33% of Match users report having relationships that last longer than 4 months. Because it’s a paid site, Match may not be on the top of your list of dating sites to try, but if you continue on the online dating route, it’s likely a site you’ll eventually land on. 
Recently, Match has implemented innovative Verification tools to allow users to build trust on the dating platform by connecting through a valid social media account. Match will give users a badge that shows up on their profiles if they verify their Facebook accounts, email addresses, phone numbers, Twitter accounts, and other social media profiles. This is a completely optional feature, but it can help you build credibility with potential love interests.
Having being created in the year 1995, match.com is one of the largest and oldest dating services on the Internet. Match.com serves users from over 24 countries and hosts its websites in 15 languages. Users create profiles and describe themselves and what they are hoping to find in the people they might date. These profiles and other tools are key to finding that special person.

Until i eventually got to know that have been used by a women i first met a lady on this site and she has been so caring but very deceitful... she said she's been suffering from depression which i never knew until my friend on fb referred me to a IT geek who assisted me in getting into her Facebook messages and also her whatsapp chats...he's the best in private investigator and you can always contact him at metzharris(@)gmail.com
Similar member qualities are presented in The Daily 5, which offers you five possible matches for the day. When you click on ‘Daily Matches’, you will be able to see all the profiles in the style of a slideshow. From first impressions, a user may then click on a profile to either keep it in your matches section, or to move on to another. You will receive a prompt to send your match a message if you choose to keep it, or you may continue with your search, and move on to the next match.
Match.com has developed into one of the best and biggest platforms online for singles, since 1995. The Match site is present in 24 countries and hosts its websites in fifteen different languages to serve singles, and its membership is estimated at approximately 60 million users. As the foremost dating site in the US, Match.com has received 17.5 million visits every month since 2017. Inarguably, the opportunity to discover romance on this particular dating site, is among the highest.

Although it’s held different names throughout the year, Top Spots have been a feature on Match for years, unlike the Improve My Profile feature, which is rather new. Throughout the site, users will see prompts to “Improve your profile,” and unlike other dating sites that give you stats and insider tips, Match helps users improve their profile by actually having pros rewrite member profiles. Currently titled ProfilePro, the profile writing add-on enlists so-called profile writing pros to overhaul member profiles with the goal of getting members more attention from others on the site. It comes with no guarantees but for those who simply don’t express themselves well in words, it’s a handy option. The service costs $39.99 plus tax and is completed in only a few short days.
Match has just made it incredibly hard to find a "match" via a search. You used to be able to search by various criteria including income. They took that away. As the match customer service rep explained, wealthy men like to date the housekeeping women that work in hotels. I kid you not. It used to be you could search for someone who was on the same level as you, keeping possibilities at a minimum. Now, I get 2000+ matches. WTF...
In addition to the Go Search tab, under the Discovery menu you will also find a Mutual Match tab, a Reverse Match tab, and a Username tab. Mutual match filters results based on characteristics you stated you are looking for you in profile while the Reverse Match filters results based on characteristics you stated you have in your profile that others stated they are looking for in a match. Username is exactly what it sounds like and allows you to search by username, which may be helpful if you’re looking for someone who is a huge enthusiast of something in particular -- a restaurant, a sports team, or any sort of hobby, for example.
The first thing you need to understand (if you haven't already discovered it on match) is that none of your letters will be read unless the recipient is a FULLY PAID member. Even though you have paid to be a member you are still not able to contact the other person. There is a option available to you but it's pretty much extortion on the part of Match. You can pay an additional monthly fee where all of your mail is delivered and they can read and reply back to you. Apart from that I can't really give you any other answers other than don't renew with this site.
The site also hosts a variety of ways to maximize your experience on the site, although they are paid add-ons. To gain more exposure, members may purchase a “Top Spot,” which places their profile at the top of search results (that they fit into) for 60 straight minutes. The feature is most useful when used at peak times and can help online daters get out of the feeling of being stuck in an online dating rut. Top Spot profile boost starts at $3.99 for a one-time session (which starts instantly after you pay) but can also be purchased in bulk at discounted rates: a 5-pack for $2.99 each or a 10-pack for $2.49 each.

I was a Match.com member and I completed my guarantee period which entitled me to a free six month extension of my membership. Match.com charged my card anyway. I disputed the charge with my bank and Match.com took action! They closed my account, blocked me and banned me forever. They refunded the charge, but I lost my free six month service extension. All I wanted to do was prevent Match.com from illegally stealing my money. The facts speak for themselves. There aren't enough adjectives to describe how incompetent and deceitful they are!
A review of Match.com will definitely let you know that the search options are exceptional. Members are automatically provided with their suggested matches, but they may also do a manual search as the onsite options are numerous. The advanced search feature on Match.com is very detailed, and includes in-depth search filters, which are difficult to find anywhere else, such as exercise frequency. Members can save the searches which they prefer, and input the location and age range in the search bar, to find a range of profiles which may fall just beyond their match criteria. Results can also be refined by choosing attributes such as religion or education. Common keywords which are important to users, can also be used to search for suitable matches.

Absolutely NOT. This is a site that has only one purpose and that is to scam you out of your money. Not only are there scammers as stated by Diane H. and Sally C. this site is completely dishonest about how it works and what you can expect from it. I'll share this one example to illustrate. When you join with a credit card, they will inform you that you now have full access to their site and features. You can now send mail to the men and start meeting them. However, there is a catch that they do NOT mention on the sign up page. The catch is that you can send all the letters you want to the men, BUT, unless the men are also fully paid members, none of them are allowed to read your mail and reply to you. What is the point of paying to use the service when the other side must also have a fully paid membership? If you have paid your membership fee then by all standards you are now entitled to not only write to the men but to expect them to reply back to you. Not on match. There is an extra fee that you must pay so that non members can receive, read and reply to your mail. This is a SCAM on every level. Please save your money and avoid this site at all costs. I'm speaking from first hand experience. Read the testimonies on this site and understand that they are all 100% correct and accurate.

In part two of the registration, you go through eight screens that essentially fill out your profile and allow you to tell others more about yourself. When filling out the fields about yourself there are the same basic questions that were asked regarding what assets and qualities you would like to see in a match, along with a few optional questions you may complete such as going into more detail about your religious beliefs with an open-ended answer field, checking off the types of sports you enjoy from a predetermined list, and inputting the city you grew up in. There are also additional questions you may answer to give profile viewers a better idea of who you are and what you like such as listing your favorite local hot spots, sharing your favorite movies or hobbies, and indicating the last thing you read, the last of which is one of Match’s tried and true profile questions that has been on the site for years. At the end, there’s an additional open-ended field for you to write a short introductory bio and explain who you are looking to meet, with helpful examples to get you started. Lastly you can check boxes indicating if you’d like Offers by Match, which sends your profile to partner sites, and if you would like your profile to be featured.  As a final step you are prompted to add a profile picture either by importing from Facebook or uploading from your computer.
Match features an extensive Search section filled with various filters for searching, ways of searching, and search results organization options. The basic search begins with the gender, age range, and location of others you are looking to meet. From basic search you can refine your results further as you filter by any profile fields (appearance, interests, background, lifestyle), keyword, and/or username, and further filter results to show only those available for chat, online now, and/or with photos. Sort your results by newest first, activity date (when the user last used the site), age, distance, photo count, username, or by Match Picks, which are members the site’s algorithm predicts you will match with best. In addition to basic search and all of the filtering and sorting options, there’s also a mutual match search and reverse match search. Mutual match search matches you based on your user-inputted fields of who you are looking for in your profile, while reverse match search matches you based on the fields you have filled out about yourself in your profile. You also have the option to save any search you run to be used for future use. 
Match.com free users are able to create their own profiles and to browse, but will be limited to communicating via winks, only. If your intention is to meet someone really special, then you will need to become a paying member. Several packages are available, and have been categorized as ‘Bundle Plans’ and ‘Basic Plans’, which are very much alike. The Bundle Plan has 3 additional features, which are First Impressions, Highlighted Profiles, and Email Read Notifications (for more, see Features & Functionality). If users are not satisfied with the services they receive after a six-month period, they will receive an additional membership of six-months, free of charge! Match.com further provides a few very appealing add-ons. A service can be purchased which will notify you every time that an email has been read which you sent out, and your profile will be shown at the top of relevant searches for a full thirty minutes, for an additional $3.
In an internal survey, a third of Match users reported having started a relationship lasting longer than four months thanks to the dating site.To date, Match claims responsibility for over 10 million relationships in the US as well as more than 1 million babies being born. That’s an incredibly legacy, and this online dating giant isn’t slowing down at all. The Texas-based team continually comes up with new ways to connect users online and offline.
I signed up 15/08 to the site and thought it would be an honest place since it's for mature people. I was emailed by this man on the site. He's a longstanding member of Match as well & i suspect many other sites. He & i exchanged a few emails where he started using what looked like common interests & other tactics in order to gain your trust & a false bond. He bored me with what i thought was his life story. Even revealing details that should remain private about his family.

Besides reducing spammy emails, the email filters can also save you a lot of time by listing the profiles of people you can consider dating. Just like search filters, email filters can also be adjusted to match your real-time needs. Although this feature keeps email from members who have not met your specifications, filtered mail can still be accessed via the filtered mail folder.

From any profile you find and like, you have various options to engage with the discovered member. You may save any profile, to communicate later, show interest by winking, favoriting the member or liking any of her profile pictures. With a paid membership, emailing the member is always an option, as is chat if the member is online, or you may select talk and text to safely communicate with MatchPhone, allowing you to keep your number private. Other intuitive options available on each profile page are the option to forward the profile to a friend, see more like her, which brings up a search results page of similar profiles, or Match Me, which allows you to ask the site to have list your profile as one of her daily matches. Profiles are long but not excessive and conveniently give an overview of commonalities you and that match share. They highlight the ways you match based on what that user is looking for, all the while continually prompting you with helpful suggestions to send a message about profile answers that user has selected.

Nothing seems to happen on this dating site. I get views but that's it. I find it amazing that I have friends and family in real life who think that I'm a decent enough guy, but on a dating site nobody seems to give a damn. I posted an accurate description of myself, a nice photo but nope nothing. I guess I have to look like Brad Pitt and be super wealthy to attract somebody on this website but that's okay. My realy life friends think I'm pretty great.Thanks for nothing.

Focusing on who you would like to meet first, the registration process walks you through five short screens from which you can input the basic information you would like to see in the profiles of your matches. The first screen focuses on what she should look like with fields for hair color, eye color, and height, the latter of which you can check as a dealbreaker. Next you’ll go on to select what background you would like her to have, with fields for education, ethnicity, religious beliefs (all three of which can be checked as dealbreakers) and language. Lastly you check go through a few final details of your match that might matter to you including relationship status, has kids, wants kids, drinking habits, smoking habits, and income, All final fields can be checked as dealbreakers except for income. 
The worst site imaginable. Look forward to spending two minutes verifying that you're not a computer every time you log in (after paying), so you can see 45 people, two of whom you're interested in (in a top 5 city in terms of population in the US), one of whom has been online in the last year... and a bunch of people a hundred miles away. All good reviews about this horrible site online are ones they paid for. Run for the internet hills.
I'm just wondering how profiles get shown on the site. I am a pretty attractive female and have a lot to offer. I have received emails from only 7 men since joining Match.com in November and none of them were even in my age group. It also seems like days go by without a notification that anyone has even looked at my profile. This really just seems strange to me. Is that normal?

It is because there are not any real people on match.com. Most of the profiles are fakes, or they are people who may have once been on the site and now their profiles are used as bait to get you to sign up and pay, thinking there are actual matches that could be made. Also a lot of the profiles are people who have not actually signed up and paid so they could not even get back to you if they wanted (unless they too pay for the privilege of sending an email reply). Do not sign up! This is an unethical site that does a bait and switch to get money out of you and others and does not delivery on any promises. Most of the profiles are cons trying to get something from you. This site should be shut down!
