With more than 20 million members, Match.com is one of the largest mainstream dating sites on the Internet and one of the most successful at bringing people together in relationships. The staff at Match.com have calculated that every year more than 200,000 people find a long-term partner through the site. Match.com have very high levels of customer satisfaction and offer users six months free if they don’t find their matches within the first six months.
Match.com's success and popularity in the world of online dating is due to its simple and easy matching tools, extensive on- and offline media advertising, and demonstrable effectiveness.
For new online daters, Match.com is unintimidating to use and explore, yet its interface is both professional and friendly. Its aggressive and broad advertising has meant that it has developed a huge pool of single members, and that the word-of-mouth recommendation of those members has been excellent, delighted as they have been by the quality and quantity of prospective partners they have found. Match.com delivers on its promises.
Rich with features without being overwhelming, Match.com allows you to search for potential matches, record personalised voice messages, send phone numbers, and receive emails from your match prospects. The new “matchMobile” application can be installed on your Smartphone and will allow you to mange your dating efforts on-the-go. Match.com’s 6-month “Make Love Happen” guarantee is industry-famous and a real incentive to trail their service with very little risk. Also, rather unusually for a dating site, Match.com offers live customer support center, so you can get help with their service in real time.
Online dating in general is a fairly safe and secure way to meet prospective partners, but in addition Match.com provide members with considerable privacy by withholding contact details and email addresses by default, providing ample blocking and filtering options, and giving extensive advice and safety tips on their information pages. However, Match.com goes further by providing members with extensive control over what information is viewable and to whom. For example, members can choose to only show their profile photograph once they have made contact with the person they are interested in, and then only to this person specifically. The degree to which a member can remain anonymous is entirely within their control.

Ease of Use:
The Match.com site is easy to use and all its functionality is self-explanatory. It has a friendly welcoming feel, of a sort that appeals to singles of all ages and social groups. The pages are quick-loading, and though there are a few questions to be answered in the profile building section, the questionnaire certainly isn't as time consuming as those of many other dating websites. There is a very helpful and well-written navigation guide for new members. As part of Match.com’s renowned customer service experience, tutorials on site navigation are offered, along with step-by-step guides and free access to their contact center.
Match.com's search system just works. This fact is clear from its high success rates with finding people long-term partners, the many glowing reviews it receives from satisfied customers, and its unrivalled membership levels. One reason for this is that whiel most dating sites encourage people to upload a photo of themselves, Match.com actually insists on it. It is well-known, for better or worse, that pictures are the number one reason why people decide to make contact. Match.com is also big on giving its members options for how they meet and make contact with others. Busy members can allow the websites' sophisticated matching technology to generate a small but highly relevant pool of singles to choose from, or for those seeking more control over the results, there is also the option to search using keywords.
For example, wine lovers seeking partners with the same interest could simply key in the word 'wine,' which would then return every single person with that word on their profile. This is a powerful tool, and no other dating website currently offers this granular a search option, yet it is one of the most popular search features, allowing members to really hone in on traits, hobbies and interests that are important to them in another person.
My heart is back!
Match is awesome! and am now beginning to reap the results. I am dating again, but consistently. I have a clearer approach to who and what I am actually looking for in a potential romantic partner. I am now finding it much easier to balance my head with my heart, so keeping a cool head whilst still allowing a warm heart.
I owe this site so much
Thanks Match. I owe you so much. My life is rich with joy and happiness since having joined this site. At times I felt like an excited little kid on Christmas morning as I discovered more and more about how much I love my life, the people in it and realized how lucky I am to have them. The most valuable things I got out of this site were seeing that I am fulfilled, happy and surrounded by love. Also that there is an abundance of opportunity awaiting me out there and that there really is no rush. Thank You!
How can I thank Match enough?
Oh Match, how can I ever thank you! From the moment I met you I admit I was skeptical. I had tried so many things: a matchmaker, two dating services, and a activities club. I had spent thousands of dollars on what I thought would help me meet the one. They didn't but you did! I followed everything you said, did my homework and focused on me just like you said. Now, I have been in a solid relationship for over 7 months now and best of all WE ARE ENGAGED!!!! I am so grateful that you saved me when I almost just gave up. Match.com is America's best kept secret!!! I have already referred over 20 friends and they too are on the road to relationships!
