To help make our Match. For a more detailed breakdown along with tips see our match. You will find with Match. Unless you are looking to join for 1 month, I cant see why anyone would opt for the 3 month plan, so our advice would be to take the most popular, 6 month Match. Once signed up, Match offer some addon services, which are detailed below, these include their 'Boosts' to get your profile seen by more people and their Select and Connect addons which, in my opinion are a waste of time.
2882 Match.com Consumer Reviews and Complaints
You can see a quick video of the questionnaire here, if you were interested. In terms of my matches, I was taken aback by the volume of matches when I had logged in. Straight away I felt like I was being more shallow with match. I averaged about views a day with a wink and a couple of favourites a day too.
The advanced search feature in Match. If you know what you want, then you can narrow down your search to a tee, filtering by every option imaginable; Height, weight, build, location, hobbies, income, eye colour, values etc A nice touch is being able to search by when the person was last logged in, this does cut down the matches by quite alot I had 'matches', clicked 'logged in within 2 week' and it whittled them down to just 80 but at least you can see that they are active users.
How I used this feature? Nail down a specific type that interests you and go after those in batches by sending a similar message that will seem tailed to them. EG Badminton players - send a messages about Badminton to everyone in that 'niche' - this seemed to work great for getting replies as I can imagine women especially get alot of messages on Match. With both a free and paid membership at Match. This just means that you add a profile to a list of people who you are interested in so you can come back to them at a later time.
When you add someone to your favourite list they will be notified. Once you have sent a wink you cannot undo it, and the user will obviously be alerted that you have winked at them. My advice is to skip the wink and just sent them a message. You can agree to some extended Match.
As soon as you purchase a Boost, then it will be live. When I tested it at various times, it wasn't worth it, but then again it might be my face that is the problem. I saw an increase in views, but next to 0 increase in engagement. I saw the best results during mid week nights Tuesday specifically seemed to be a winner so use that knowledge as you will. If you want to make sure you dont hear from someone on Match. These features just means that they will not be able to contact you in anyway, shape or form on Match.
A less extreme version is 'hiding' profiles, this just means that their profile will not show up in any of your searches across Match. Match dont make it easy to find these actions, you will need to scroll to the bottom of a persons profile page to find these options. There are 2 additional paid features to Match. You will get alerted of events that are happening near you, that are run by Match. These are surprisingly OK, compared to other dating events I've been to.
I think the fact that you know everyone else there are online dating and you can also take a friend, helped massively with me feeling like a bit of a tit aka an introvert The events are paid, with the first drink and snacks free, so Id recommend hopping onto one if there is one near you. I've also noticed they offer singles holidays, I cant say Ive been on one, but if any of my lovely readers have, then Id love to hear how that went They do feel a bit pointless due to the advanced search option they have and also alot of the 'shuffle' matches weren't of interest.
Joined match and within 12hrs of being signed up I found the perfect man I had been searching for. From the minute we spoke we clicked and since then every minute and every hour has got more and more perfect. When you meet your match, it hits you like a freight train but is the best feeling in the world. I know he is my soul mate and I can wait for the rest of our lives. I met Rick on match a year ago and now we are engaged to be married just wanted to say thank u soon much. I am so thankful that I joined match. Right from the beginning we were both intrigued by each other and i found chatting to him through email so easy and enjoyable.
My daughter signed me up for match. She felt this was a way I could meet someone.
I talked to several people on this site, but my now husband was the only one I went on a date with. Since our first date he told me he was going to marry me. I thought he was full of it , but now I am his wife. I am beyond happy and in love with my marine.
symazoxahago.tk UK Review – (2nd Place)
Met my now husband five years ago on here. Just by chance a couple of months in I double checked my mail and there he was. Recommend it to everyone, great seeing all about them, what they enjoy and definitely what they look like. We have found a perfect match in each other and are looking forward to spending the rest of our lives together! I joined match back in July when my dad was in hospital I just wanted some new people to talk to as was not quite ready for a boyfriend.
Sadly I lost my dad 2 weeks later at the time I had joined for 6 months and not had much luck when that 6 months ran out I joined for 1 more month before I was going to take my profile down. I had signed up for a 6 month membership with Match and had some contacts. Mostly men who said they were engineers. I then cut him off. Other men were looking for a "God fearing woman" Who would want to be with this kind of man? I canceled my membership because I met a man from another dating site. I'm sure I checked the box for no renewal of membership, however when I looked at my credit card bill I was charged with a renewal.
I tried to contact them and was told I didn't have a membership with them. I was in the International site because I live in Indonesia. I tried to contact International customer care and sent a few emails. They all end up in the US site which tells me I don't have a membership. Around and around we go in a vicious circle. I got so fed with the runaround.

This is not a good dating site. How ironic when everything about this dating site is fake. Half of their members are no longer members and very few people live in your local area. I would have cancelled my membership after the first hour if this was possible. In addition to this these people will take another payment from your bank account unless you cancel your subscription so read the small print.

I know other people with the same views who have also been caught out. Save your money, ignore the fake advertising campaign and join a different site. Please note these people also own Plenty of Fish and numerous other sites. Even Billy the Kid had the courtesy to wear a mask when he robbed people.
This is a class action suit waiting to happen for any attorney who wants to take a stab at it. I could go into elaborate detail about the devious methods Match. Everything you've read on Consumer Affairs is all fairly accurate. You're better off finding a date somewhere else I have been a member of Match.
Early this month I noticed a charge on my card that indicated I had been charged for an Automatic Renewal of my Match. When I joined this most recent time last summer? After speaking with the customer service guy for 10 minutes, and listening to him explain that I cancelled AFTER the Renewal went into effect, I would only get part of my money. I then asked for a supervisor. Only 5 minutes on hold, the supervisor came online. I explained I am not new to this and that Match had tried this stunt on me before.
I asked point blank, what is the purpose of having the Do Not Renew button, to which he had no good explanation. I refused to budge and he finally said as a "courtesy" he would refund the entire amount. Then he said for me to "keep in mind, going forward" that I need to read the rules which are explained to me 3 times, thru the membership form and emails sent to me.
I explained to him that there would be no "Going Forward" and that I would never again subscribe to Match. So, in closing, use caution when you subscribe and the same day you join, set an alarm on your calendar 6 months or a year out to manually CANCEL your Match. So they can't Auto-Renew their access to your bank account! Don't mess with an experienced dating site user. I'm no fool and this isn't my first rodeo.
Current user [though the 3-month subscription is set not to renew on PayPal]. This is my second time on Match [last was back in — quite honestly, I met many quality women — dated a gem I met on Match for 4 years. Just a few observations so far, FWIW: Match pads your daily matches with fake accounts. That said, there ARE legitimate accounts. Click Profile next to "Log out" and select Profile and settings. Click the name of the merchant for the agreement you want to change. Under "Payment method," click Change next to the funding source you're looking to change.
The company automatically charged me at 6 months even though I had deactivated my account. I tried to find a way to contact them and much to my dismay there was only a mailing address, no phone contact. So I contacted PayPal to explain, they refused to give me my money back. That said I was still enrolled in the sites membership and the purchase was authorized.
The worst money ever spend in my life. Half of profiles are fake and the other half did close their account but their pictures are still on Match. So when you close your account make sure that you delete the pictures first. Before you go out with any of this girls don't be afraid or shy to ask them if they take any type of medication. Don't go out for lunch or dinner because it may turn out that you don't like each other and then you're stuck. Many women on this site are obviously fake profiles. When you live in Alaska and multiple girls are smoking hot models with profile pictures in the Bahamas and generic descriptions like "Just looking for a nice guy; I love music food and adventure," it starts to set off red flags.
Refusing to refund money after only 2 days of purchase. Read the details fully! They promise a full refund within 3 days of purchase, but they refuse to honor. They also placed a double charge on my bank account. The few people that messaged me were very obviously scammers. I signed on with Match a little over a month ago. I think that my profile was professional and with enough detail but not overly long. I view myself as fairly attractive for my age. I would send a message to a man that I found interesting.
Very little if any response. Men my age or even older want all these women years younger. I find that a little disturbing. I cancelled my auto renewal and received an email that they would keep my profile for 1 year after my membership ends. Well now I definitely wonder and probably know the answer as to how many profiles are active and legit. Unlike a lot of the reviews that seem highly subjective - OMG, it's Match.
Give me a break people, sounds more like a YOU problem. I'll just stick to the facts. They will intentionally word profiles to grant you "hits," in your search parameters and even send you messages - All in the hope that they'll sucker you into subscribing. Someone liked my profile?
Can't see who without paying. Someone took the time to message me? Can't read the message without paying. Fake to actually match the demographic in this metro area. I'm not buying this garbage. Oh, and your inbox will get "hits" all the time but you can't do jack about it unless you subscribe. I wouldn't have a problem subscribing but the LEAST expensive plan is still around 60 dollars for three months with no option to trial or even just go month to month.
That's highway robbery and frankly with FAKE profiles - is a scam.
There is nobody actually real on this site. Someone needs to hold these websites accountable! After many attempts after people clicked as liking my profile absolutely zero replies. Tired of being single after a divorce, I made the leap and signed on to Match. I'm here to tell you that just about every negative review you read on this consumer review page is, unfortunately true.
Of over "would-be" matches, the majority were either out of date, fake or non-paying members
