Read our Match.com reviews (below) to see what other online daters are saying about this company.
Match.com has been one of the world's largest dating sites since the online dating industry began. It's the most popular online dating app in seventeen states. This company has had many years to understand how online dating services work and have matching features more complicated than most other online dating sites today. Because there is such a large user base registered, Match.com's dating algorithm is more effective and precise about picking "Mutual Matches" than ever.
There's a free membership trial version available either online or as an app download. Match.com has a 6-month guarantee for its members. If a Match.com member is unsuccessful in finding matches, Match.com will give an additional 6-months of service added to their subscription free of charge.
Match.com has a new verification system where users can verify their profiles by connecting their Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn page. This verification process is optional. While the dating service does not conduct background checks regularly, they may do so if your profile is reported.
Even though Match.com is one of the top online dating sites today, unfortunately, there are a lot of consumer complaints. Most of the claims are problems with the product or service issues. There have been many complaints about billing/collection as well as guarantee/warranty related issues. Members have also complained about getting spammed with dating emails, and having their credit card information stolen.
I was only a paying customer for one month. It absolutely did not work for me. However, I have no complaints about their management or business model. I spoke with 2 of their "dating coaches" and they tried to be helpful. I took myself off because i was spinning my wheels, going nowhere with match. If you are an older fellow like me, 68, and you just want to look at the pictures of ladies, they have plenty of them. However, if getting a response from any of them or actually meeting someone, my experience tells me that your chances are so very slim. I joined and immediately heard from 2 ladies. Then 2 days later both were not on the site anymore. From there I became proactive. i sent courteous, well written intro. messages to 27 ladies. 26 ignored my messages. One gave a one sentence response just wishing me luck. I am a decent looking gentleman with strong character traits, just what these ladies claim to want to meet. here lies the problems: More than half of the ladies in their 60's on match state their preference for men is the men need to be 45-58 years old. This is something that would make them feel younger about themselves. They have little interest in a man's character just so long as he is considerably younger than them and I will add, that these women, many 5'3'"-5'6" demand that the men they are interested in must be at least 6' tall. being in great level of fitness as I am apparently counted for zero as I am a truthful 5'9". So fellas, if you want to date women 10-15 years older than you & you are a tall man, then you may have a chance on match.com with these wonderful ladies in their 60's. I did not want any part of their nonsense. After a disappointing month, I exited match.com. However, I do not have anything negative to say about the company or its practices.
I wanted to use a dating site that gave me useful information about the person of interest. This was excellent for that.
Quite expensive and no real matches for me. The questionnaire was very lengthy and too personal.
I have been able to find and match with amazing people on this app! We have stayed friends but it really is nice when you don't have time to meet people in person!
Match.com is ok, but I feel like there are a lot of fake profiles. Not a good selection to choose from in my area.
I have meet a number of quality guys through Match. I like the ability to find people with common interest within my home town, which I never would have met on my own.
Match was okay for me. Matched with a few people, but never found any connections. It was pretty expensive for what it offered. I quit paying and using match after I found some other online dating apps that were free that offered just as much as Match offered. I wasn’t very impressed with it.
I only did the trial but had a great time in a week span. I met so many guys and I still keep in touch. I met guys from different parts off the area that I never would have considered. Think this site really works.
So many options and people to meet. I met my husband here and we’ve been married for 10 years and have 2 kids.
Found a couple of serious people on this sight. The majority of people would use for the free trial and leave
Able to narrow down my selection of females and how the act and what they love to do
I met my husband 7 years ago on match.com Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined meeting the man of my dreams from a computer screen. It's been 7 wonderful years. Thankyou match. I would and have suggested this dating site to many....and to see my friends finding love just as I did is amazing.
I used this site to find men who might be good dating candidates. They need to vet their members better. Most o of the men were creeps who only wanted sex.
I met my husband on Match.com and we've been married for 3 years. Great program to meet people who genuinely want to date.
BUYER BEWARE!! They hook you in and then its like a bait and switch. They send you matches not even close to what your requirements are and then when you ask questions about not being able to sign in they cancel you. And when you ask for a reason why ,they tell you (this is verbatim) "Due to our privacy practices, we cannot disclose specifics about any Match account, including your own. " Very unprofessional.
I met way too many married men while on Match so I cancelled my membership. I assume men are single on dating sites.
Rubbish - don’t do it! You can’t cancel it! They don’t answer the phone- no Matter what option you choose - there is no one to speak to - ever! They say the only way to stop it auto renewing from an iPhone is to do it from settings - subscriptions- it’s not there in my list. I paid £60 the first time for 6months, I used it for all of 2 weeks - it’s was rubbish and even though I thought I’d cancelled it it then it auto renewed and charged me £119.34!!!!! I went to PayPal who came back saying that my refund had been declined! Steer well clear of this money machine!
It was easy to navigate my way around the website. It was good at finding guys that had similar interests and seemed a good fit for me. It made it faster to find people I was interested in.
Scam. I signed up for this twice, each time for 6 months. A lot of fraudulent profiles. Especially when your subscription runs out. What happens after it ends is that all of the sudden you will get a lot of women liking you and sending you messages. When you resubscribe to see who liked you and messaged you, the majority of the time their accounts are no longer active or hidden. After the second subscription ran out, sure enough I received a lot of likes and messages. Would I renew?? Nope, no thanks, pass.
Match.com is a fun and easy dating site to use and I'm very happy that I started using it.
I tried Match.com for a whole evening and it was okay. Not my favorite app to get around, kind of confusing. But people on this dating site were pretty nice and I got a few good dates out of it!
This is not a trustworthy company. I feel like they need to be more aware of the people that are joining. Maybe they need to do a real background check on them.
Match.com worked for me. The questionaire was easy and thorough at the same time and I was able to find a match for me. It was a painless introduction to meeting new people and it was great.
It does the job but I think some of the functions could be worked on as it can be a little odd at times.
Not useful. Too much upselling. "Free" level pretty useless.
1. In my personal observation hence perception, this outfit and their affiliates are likely plagued with FRAUD. They collect hefty fees for making people to believe that customers will have access to hundreds of thousands if not millions of singles, seeking marriage, friendship, companionship, etc. if they pay hefty fees UP FRONT, and go along with additional piecemeal traps for paying more and more. Moreover, they plant "lawyers" and other observers into the pool, making sure that that their scheme is not uncovered or not distributed among customer thus provoking mass cancellations. 2. It starts with something like "FREE, find millions of singles looking for you, FREE". They collect your info, but at the end of the FREE subscription process you see nothing until you "subscribe", i.e. buy into their fraudulent tricks. You see nothing for free, but ... NOTE!! ... now they have your what they call PROFILE. It's the profile's they merchandise, sell, promise, use for temptation, and for enticing people into their process. Note again, you haven't signed up yet, but they already your profile, and even if you do not want to subscribe, you cannot withdraw your information. It's all out there, sold, marketed, viewed, as if you were already a member. Of course, the viewers won't get a response, but that can happen from legitimate members too if they are not interested. Hard to tell, and they milk the last penny out of this scenario. But, that's not all. 3. Members' subscription expire, or they quick. They are out. But not their PROFILE. They continue to get merchandised, viewed, and offered for view. Again, those seeking responses from these will not get any because the folks they are "viewing" are not around. But they do not know that, and have no way to ever know that - unless their friends or others join and see nonexistent members' PROFILES still floating around in the system, bringing in moneys. In other words, they sell merchandise that does not exist!! 4. If you get suspicious and ask questions about the system, or about what's going on, and one of their on line floaters see it, you get terminated from the system for violating the "terms of the agreement", but no refund! I hope this provokes thought, and attracts scrutiny. In my opinion, this is largely a fraudulent operation.
I FEEL THEY ARE MANIPULATIVE IN CUSTOMER SERVICE DEALINGS, USING OTHER MEANS TO SECURE MEMBERSHIP (APLLE PAY) AND NOT NOTIFYING CUSTOMER OR WORKING TO MAKE ADJUSTMENTS ON BILLING.
I actually was liking match for the one day I could use it before they canceled me because I am married. I was transparent in my profile that I am married and live with and take care of my husband who is cognitively and physically disabled. Apparently this disqualifies me despite the fact that this is a growing demographic. They had 2 weeks to review and see this as an issue before I paid and another week from when I paid to when I started responding to messages to notice this and determine that I shouldn't be canceled, but didn't do anything.
Match.com is a good place to find someone and to spend time with someone doing something that you and that person love to do.
My husband and I met on match.com 7 years ago. It was my favorite dating site, and I felt like I met the best people there. Better than other services I tried!
Used match before, met some really great people!! I think their algorithm is a bit off sometimes as they stop communications from happening. Overall it was a good experience.
Match is the only dating service I have used and fell in love with. They showed me all of the similarities between me and my matches and how far away they were.
I liked match because it helped me meet with people I would have never met on my own. I met amazing people on the site and it was a super straight forward app with amazing features.
I liked this dating site because I feel like there are a lot of kind genuine people on this site! But I don't think this site is everyone's first choice, so there are less people. I've had good experiences with the customer service of this site as well.
The website is clear and it's super easy to find the people you'd want to go one dates with.
After I called to cancel my membership many times, Match still charge on my credit card, my friends has suffering the same problem. Very annoying!
i’ve tried it all but match was definitely a hit! i met so many great guys and it was so easy to do it, this site is great and is very helpful for a hopeless romantic
Not sure on this site. I mean people find the person the love all the time on this site but I personally find it annoying I have to pay to possibly meet someone.
I was always against online dating because you always here those horror stories. My sister had told me one day that "online dating introduces you to people you might not meet." I took that to heart because the things I liked to do didn't really offer me a lot of opportunities to meet people and so I decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did. I spent some time in the app and it was really easy to navigate through and search for potential matches. I was able to put as much information about myself as I wanted. After a couple days on the app, I met my, now, husband! If you are debating trying online dating, I would tell you to take the risk! It can be so worth it in the end.
Not worth the money. Lots of people initially, but seems not many want to actually meet. I've asked for a refund three times, but no response. you're much better off with Bumble, which is free...
I never went on dates through Match.com who I felt I really connected with. People I met were not often had similar interests as me.
I would like to use match, but their service is paid only. I’d like to try the service first and then pay for more or even sign up for a membership.
I haven't had a lot of success on this dating website. Maybe I'm too picky but the dating pool isn't all that great.
I like the personality quizes and questions to try and make a match. There is also plenty of people to go through and chances are you can find a good match.

Constant attempts to up sell. No refunds regardless of when you quit. Very hard to delete your data.
I stopped using the website but then I found a $71 USD charge on my credit card. match.com automatically charged me a 3 month renewal fee of $71 USD two days earlier. I received no email notice from them leading up to the automatic payment. I called their number and the operator said the best he can do is refund me $20.01 and he refused to transfer me to his supervisor. In summary they charged me $51 for a service I did not use.
Don't cancel through the dating site - do it through your bank! Once deleted, a site can't charge your account, and if they should do so, the bank is obliged to retrieve your funds and return your money to your account. Otherwise I find dating sites take up huge amounts of time as you can not know what kind of dating arrangements people have already in place when you first contact them. It is a bit of a 'cattle market' which can be exasperating. Also there is a lot of distrust among members which arises from all sorts of previous experiences. If you go for this kind of pass-time, take a deep breath first! Having said that, it does work, and I have met and had at least one long term 10 year relationship from Match.com. You do have to sift through a lot of nonsense though first before you find genuine people.
This company does NOT really have huge pool of profiles. I mean - real profiles, as they keep ( with you even knowing it) EVERY profile they had during entire time the company exists ( like for 10+ years). They do NOT delete your profile if you were there. It is still there, it is still offered to current members . That is actually A FRAUD , as they are charging you for participation in the data base, which consists of maybe 75 % of old, already non-existent profiles. It is tricking you for their benefits.
Beware of tricky cancellation policy. It's done online and even when you think you've done it right, you perhaps have not. It's an auto-renew and the only way to cancel is to stop auto-renewal and then go on and on and on to other screens. I thought I had officially cancelled but I was charged for 3 more months. Apparently the cancellation did not go through. I e-mail them the same day I saw they were about to charge me again to ask why and to try and stop the pending charge. I got no response. Later I went online to their customer service chat and was basically told too bad. I am now disputing the $74.00 charge with my credit card company. Very poor customer service experience.
