Editor's Review of Match
Match.com is one of the largest dating sites in the world. So no matter where you live, Match probably has plenty of members in your area. In fact because of the large number of members, the sheer volume of matches can be a little overwhelming. Thankfully Match.com offers plenty of search features to narrow your results down.
When creating a profile the questionnaires are thorough, so when you’re viewing the dating profiles you get a good feel for the members. So you’re able to make informed dating decisions. Match does a great job of drawing attention to member’s similarities. Like if you’re into running and a profile you’re viewing is into running, it will show a running shoe icon to make sure you’re aware of the shared interest. Match also provides a handy list of daily matches for you to browse each day. Another fun feature is Match’s DateSpark which lets you post a date idea that you’d like to do, then other members can tell you if they’d like to go on that date with you.
Along with online dating, Match also offers offline events such as: happy hours, game nights and more.
If you subscribe for six months at about $20 a month, Match.com is a real good value. Especially considering how many members there are. For an extra $40, match offers professional writers to help you make a profile that will stand out.
Overall it’s hard to beat Match’s: selection, features offered and comparable subscription value.

Match has a large amount of non-serious daters and people looking for adventures. The fact that there are so many members allows for serial daters and many people that are not marriage material. If looking for a husband or wife, I don't recommend this site.
After being on the site for over a year. I have only met two people on the site. You do have a lot of options on the site, emailing, winking. But like other sites most women don't even read emails so why send them. But this has been the most successful site for me. But that's not saying much.

Match.com is the worst dating site out there. The majority of the men are scammers; I know not only was I scammed but so was my best friend. And by the same guy, no less There are also many men and women on this site posing as military personnel. Two women were arrested here in Colorado for this very reason. If you use this, get off as fast as possible, the money lost is worth it

Match was the obvious choice for me since I do not know a lot about all the other dating sites. Im glad that I didnt waste time with smaller ones because I was going on dates within days on Match.com. Crazy to have that first "meet in person" experience which is very exciting. Dates have been fun but no love connection yet.
