Match.com Review

Match.com Summary
Match.com is a genuine, golden oldie in the online dating service industry. One of the first dating sites to hit the Internet, Match.com has continually updated its services, raising the bar for others to follow. They have more than 15 million members, and last year alone, about 250,000 reported finding that special someone at Match.com.

Match.com has an excellent guarantee for its paid members, assuring them the best chance of finding someone at the online dating service. If you purchase a 6-month membership, and don’t find someone in that time, Match.com will throw in an additional 6 months for free.

Match.com recently revamped its Match Mobile online dating service so that users can now do just about everything directly from their cell phone. From updating your profile and searching matches, to sending and instantly receiving communications, Match Mobile is very convenient when you’re away from home or office.

The online dating site has many favorable features, especially in the way of searching for other online daters. At Match.com, when you choose a specific age range, or other preferred search criteria, your results actually match those preferences.

Visit Match.com!

Match.com is very easy to navigate and comprehend, within the site itself, and the search results. Everything is well structured so that you can quickly see all of the most important details about a profile before reading the description. Communications are made simple. When you click to email someone, you’re given a view of their picture and profile for easy reference while writing.

On the negative side, Match.com will not allow a new user to immediately post their profile. Once written, it is submitted to Match.com, where it can take up to 48 hours to be reviewed and approved. Once approved, it will then be available to other users.

In the past, Match.com received a lot of negative reappraisals from members who were fed up with the excessive advertisements on the site. Some of these would even block the user from reading parts of the content on a page. In 2007, however, Match.com updated its site to show a lot less ads. And those that are displayed no longer get in the way of a users navigation.
