Hello Beauts and Gents,
Today we are going to give you our unvarnished expert opinions of Match.com.
So here it goes.
Match.com is one of those er paid sites. It’s the grand poo ba of online dating. The Bill Gates. The Big Dog of the online relationship world. The site has over 23 MILLION members. Match.com has been around for over 20 years (it was started in 1995). Hey it’s a millennial.
What We Like About Match.com
Match.com is one of the best two all around paid sites to join right now. They boast over 20 million members meaning you have a plethora of potential matches to get to know. This is important, especially if you have some limiting qualities you are looking for. We recommend that you join one site that has many members and a large match pool to choose from (eHarmony being another option). If you are just starting out online dating or want to go with one site you can’t go wrong with Match.com.
Unlike eHarmony, Match.com allows you to search for members and look through many profiles at once. This can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your personality and dating strategies.
The site is very user friendly and easy to use. It’s easy to setup your profile and add multiple photos of yourself.
Match.com is also very mobile friendly and easy to use on your phone.
What We Don’t Like About Match.com
Having a very large match pool is a blessing and a curse. If you are prone to falling prey to the paradox of choice (being paralyzed by having so many matches to choose from) the site will take you down a serious rabbit hole of potential matches.
Also, because it’s one of the big sites, you will have more scammers, fake profiles and non-serious matches. Although you will have less of all of that with Match.com then with free dating sites.
Match.com is also slow to respond when you have any problems or customer service issues. They are a big company and struggle to respond to your concerns quickly.
Who is Match.com Ideally For?
Match.com allows you to signup for free, but you won’t have access to many of their features. So don’t get it twisted, it is a paid site and you will have to dish out the Moola to successfully use the site. Remember this isn’t a bad thing, because the paid wall keeps out a certain percentage of the tire kickers and cheapskates.
We recommend that you become a member of either Match.com or eHarmony.com as your paid, large online site. You can’t go wrong with choosing either site. You might even want to try out both to see which one fits best with your unique personality.
The bottom line if you are choosing between Match.com and eHarmony.com is that Match gives you more control over choosing potential matches right now. You don’t have to fill out as extensive of a questionnaire as you do with eHarmony.com. Match doesn’t seek to match you primarily on deeper personality compatibility like eHarmony does.
There are pros and cons to each way. If you are a person who is prone to the paradox of choice or the grass is always greener mistakes, we recommend eHarmony for you. If you are someone who can handle searching through millions of matches and not sabotage yourself, then Match.com might be better for you.
Overall, Match.com is a great choice and is one of the best online dating sites out there.
Say yes to love,
