I have been a member of Match.com for about 6 months, in which time I've probably had around 8 first dates. Most of the time the date doesn't really pan out - that's not to say it goes badly, but that it just isn't what I'm looking for. So I move on. I don't really see the point in going on numerous dates only to discover what I suspected from the start, so if it doesn't feel right and we don't "click" on the first date, then I usually end things. There are plenty of women (and for that matter, men) on Match.com so there is no point sticking with someone that doesn't feel right when your perfect match could be the next person you "meet" on the site. Match.com makes it easy to find relatively like-minded people, so at least you can be sure that your first date won't be a disaster. That said, their matching system is obviously not perfect, so you still have to go on numerous "first dates" before you finally find "the one". I am still waiting. However, searching for dates on Match.com is much easier (and in my opinion more fun) than searching for dates in bars. You can perform multiple searches based on different criteria in order to find who you're looking for. Once you have a shortlist of women (or men) you simply email the ones you like with a carefully crafted (and preferably witty) email and cross-your fingers for a positive response. Obviously, the more people you email, the better your chances of getting a reply. Overall I am very happy with the search capability, the email tool and the number of members in my home town, which gives me plenty of matches to choose from.
In summary, I would recommend Match.com to a friend.
