All the things I hated on a previous site are here too

Reviewer: Nelson from London

Same broken model.

1. Want you to join then pay more and more for basic things like knowing if your message has been read
2. Similar nonsense that it shows who has viewed your profile and expect you to pay so you can look at a profile without the recipient knowing.
3. Usual nonsense "likes" from people too far away.
4. Usual nonsense of women that find an inability to reply when you message them. A simple "sorry not interested" button could go a long way, or an "ask a question" button.
5. Crap age-ranges set by the women, who seem to prefer sitting at home browsing profiles than being out there enjoying experience with real company.

Fortunately after 2 weeks (during which time I expect to have met nobody) I will ask for a full refund.

In summary, I would not recommend Match.com to a friend.

Profiles remain visible, even after membership cancellation

Reviewer: Mary from Tampa Florida Area

60 of 148 people found this review helpful

I joined match in spring of 2016, I was getting a lot of attention, but 90% of views,emails were from men who had almost nothing in common with me. And the daily matches were more of the same.

I did however meet some very nice men, unfortunately, most of them did not have the income level I have, therefore were not financially able to travel, and do many others things that I enjoy doing.

I blocked my profile after a month to take a break as it becomes overwhelming, I finally called, wasn't easy finding a phone number, spoke to a woman to discontinue my subscription, she gave an ending date. When that date arrived, I found they had charged me for another 3 months, I was very upset, when I called again, they asked if I had a confirmation number for cancellation, I did not, so apparently I was misled or there was a miscommunication. I did get it canceled that day, but kept my profile hidden as I was in another state for the summer. As I now had another 3 months on the site, I did get back on the site briefly when I returned home.

When my ending... (Read the full review)

What a scam!!!!

Never met anyone there that didn't turn out to be a real weirdo.....most just looking to "hook up".

Worst part.....I left it alone for over 6 months and realized I got billed $113 for renewal. When I called in to cancel and ask them to "prorate" my refund, they refused. Said it's their policy that they don't give refunds but..... would be sure not to bill me the next go'round!!!! Really????!!!!

In summary, I would not recommend Match.com to a friend.

What was new age dating, now is nothing but a scam

Match.com user image
This is the third time I joined Match.Com In the past it was wonderful, I met a lot of nice women, had some great dates, and met someone who I had a 5 year relationship with.

On my 3rd go around it has been a waste of time. I can't wait to expire, although now I am hearing horror stories, about being charged even though you opt out of the auto renew. My account was hacked once, but I have heard of some people being hacked 3 times. I suspect most profiles are not active, but are presented to you that they are. The only real people are those who are new on Match, but they rarely last a week, before their profiles appear to go inactive.

Living in the woods outside a very small East Texas town, I had hoped to meet someone for a companion, and hopefully a wife. Although I do not care for the fill in profiles, Match uses to make there service look better than it really is, I can navigate through it. But you can not escape the hackers and all the scammers. They are too numerous, and the attacks are never ending.

It's a shame, but... (Read the full review)

Most are looking for Toy Boys
07 May 2014
Reviewer: Dave from UK

181 of 354 people found this review helpful

On the UK site I find most of the women are just looking for toy boys. I was a paid up member 4 years ago and found the women not particularly sincere or realistic in what they were actually looking for. Recently I thought I would give it a second chance and although uploading my profile I have just browsed and saved my money this time round, glad I did as not much seems to have changed...

I truly enjoyed Match.com

Reviewer: Nc Girl from Asheville, NC

I have been on Match.com twice for extended periods in the past four years. I live in a small non-metropolitan area so not exactly hundreds and hundreds of people on the site within 50 miles. Yet I have always had a positive experience. I have had several wonderful multi-month relationships and one multi-year relationship by following several tried and true techniques:

1) Take the time to reach out and actually send messages to those you interested in - not just a wink, not just a generic "I liked your profile - check out mine and let me know what you think". Find something unique in their profile that speaks to you and share a story about it.

2) Be aware of warning signs that someone is a scammer - several "too good to be true" handsome photos - and you can do a Google Image search on their profile photo to see if it pops up elsewhere. Desired age range is too high (example a 45 year old man seeking women up to 65).

3) In communications with people, try to encourage extensive communication online for several days, weeks before meeting in person.... (Read the full review)

Match can work.

Reviewer: Kris from San Antonio, TX, USA

People get on dating web sites for a lot of different reasons, mine was ultimately to find a lasting relationship. I've tried a couple of other dating sites before getting on Match.com and met some nice people, went on several dates. For one reason or another things just didn't work out. I'm a busy professional with children, previously married for more than ten years. I had no idea where to start the dating process. Online dating gave me a way to meet people.

I think the most important thing about online dating is being honest, both in posting information about yourself and in reviewing other's information. It's critical to have good photos posted, I don't think they have to be professional, but they should be in focus, reasonably current, tell something about you, your life and your interests. When contacted by men that I was not interested in I thanked them for them interest and kindly said I was not interested but wished them the best in finding that special someone. It works the other way too, I didn't stress out and wonder why I didn't receive a message back from... (Read the full review)

Just try it! I'm so glad I did.

I'm writing this review because I'm so grateful to Match. If you're looking for reviews, you're probably skeptical. I was too! I'd never tried internet dating before and thought finding someone great online was too good to be true. Still, I gave Match a try, and I'm so happy I did!

No, it's not instant. It took me three months to find a guy I wanted to exchange more than a few emails with. Yes, there are a few creeps and jerks, just like in real life. But there are also a lot of good, honest girls and guys out there looking for the same thing you are.

Like I said, it took three months for me...but then I met my future husband! And I can't say "thank you" enough. He's amazing, wonderful, sweet, and kind. Just the "nice guy" that I was always hoping to meet! After a few months of online communication, we finally met in person, and from there it's been happily ever after.

That's my personal success; beyond that, I loved how easy the site was to use, and how easy it... (Read the full review)

Match.com works for me!

Reviewer: Ron Spencer from Boston, MA

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... (Read the full review)

I'm male, 53 (look 43 maybe), fairly decent looking, been on-off this site since Feb 2011. Divorced. Women I date are mostly 40-52 range, divorced. I've have dated several women from this site (match.com) in last 11 months. Some of the women I have had an easy time meeting, some are more elusive. Normally, I like to wait until I get someone that either emails me or shows "interest" or wink before trying to contact them. When I try to initate contact with them I'm only successful in getting a meeting with them about maybe 30% of the time. Rest of the time I get ignored. It's all about chemistry, if she doesn't see it in your photo and profile then fuggitaboutit. Move on. Same with me. Not all the emails, winks, and interests I get are from women I would be interested in dating. I have heard from nearly all the women I have dated off this site that tell me that some of the men on match.com "just don't get it". The women don't don't want to see shirtless photos and profiles that sound egotistical or written by some guy that can't even spell. I don't browse... (Read the full review)
