Match.com is often seen as the next logical step when online daters decide it’s time to stop expending energy on free dating apps and firmly make the choice to upgrade their dating game. The site is a household name, so much so it’s often synonymous with the idea of online dating itself, and it’s no longer viewed as rare or embarrassing to be a member. Throughout all their marketing ploys, the most recent campaign shows off that Match leads the competition with more second dates than any other sites. The online dating site holds true to its promise that it has and will continue to help users find what they are looking for, be that a casual hookup or serious relationship. Of course, because the site is paid, it does tend to attract a more serious level of online dater, which could account for some of its success, but after over 20 years of online dating testing and data, it’s pretty safe to assume Match.com knows what its doing when it comes to creating interpersonal connections.
After you’ve gone through your daily matches, you can view your connections on the site, a combination of today’s matches you’ve shown interest in and all of your past interactions with others, by heading to the Connections section. This section keeps track of members with whom you have interacted, in one way or another, organized by winks, likes, who’s viewed you, who’s favorited you, and members you have favorited. This section also allows you to keep a phonebook where you can store MatchPhone contacts and voicemails.
Asked for 50 mile radius and my profile was shared to all of North America and to men far outside my preferences. Match failed to actively push my profile to quality men locally but aggressively shared my profile ongoing to men far outside my preferences. Match denied this but I contacted the men 1500+ miles away and was told my profile was pushed to their feed. I learned my 50 mile limit was missing off my account and which Match denied however, a good friend had an identical experience. I did not feel like a client but instead used as bait. Blocking does not mean the inappropriate or stalker type men are blocked from seeing my profile. It means I will no longer see they are visiting my profile or able to view their messages. Frightening!
